Laura took our first daughter's newborn photos 2 years ago and they were amazing. We just had our second daughter and went back to Laura for newborn photos again because we were so pleased with her work last time. She worked a miracle this time! We brought a toddler who hadn't napped and a newborn who had already been asleep for two+ hours (hadn't eaten) and she somehow got us a whole gallery of amazing photos! I honestly teared up when going through the gallery. I am beyond happy with how they turned out. I cannot recommend Laura strongly enough! Thank you, Laura, for capturing our sweet babes & for the great family photos we'll treasure forever! p.s. my husband calls her the baby whisperer ;) More...

Had a fantastic session with my two newborn twins. I took my son to Target portrait studios when he was born and we had to help out with him alot because the photographer didn't know how to take pictures/handle a newborn. With Laura, we didn't have to worry about any of that. Laura and her assistant handled our fragile newborns without any of our help which allowed tired mom and dad to relax. The photos came out amazing. I love them so much  looking forward to our 6 month session !!! More...

Laura and Brad photo did a wonderful job with our daughters newborn photos!! Laura is great with babies as well and was well prepared for some baby fussing. Studio is beautiful and she has an excellent selection of props, colors, and photo options. She got the photos back to us in 2 weeks and they were gorgeous. Definitely would recommend. More...

I would highly recommend Laura and her team! We had our newborn photos done and they are beautiful! She truly captured the best moments  in my little man and brought his personality to life. The studio is beautiful and has so many ideas to choose from. She is calm, gentle and so kind. I look forward to using her for family postures in the future. She truly knows how to capture the moment! More...

Laura was accommodating in scheduling an appointment for our 2 week old.  She's patient and takes her time in getting the right photos for you.  We were able to bring your older son back so that we could have both our 6 year old and our new baby together.  Both sessions were successful and now we have beautiful photos that captured the moment in time when big brother was posing with his baby brother for the first time.  Many thanks!  And high recommendations!

Laura did an amazing job during my recent newborn and family shoot. Her studio had some entertainment for my two busy toddlers and she worked magic on my newborn who wanted to be fussy and awake. The photos turned out beautiful!

Excellent! We are so happy we decided to do NB photos and chose Laura and her team to do the job! Very professional, organized and clean studio.  Felt very relaxed.  She was very easy to work with and she's great with our baby! They offered creative and fun poses with star wars and marvel characters. All you can hear from us is how cute our baby girl looked in all her costume changes. I would 100% recommend them ! More...

Laura has been taking our family photos since my oldest turned 1 - that's 4 family sessions and an in-studio newborn shoot. My girls, now 2 and 4, love Miss Laura and the silly frog on her camera and my husband and I love how great she is with our kids and how well she works around tantrums and toddler timelines. The photos turn out amazing every time, and it's awesome that the digital files  are included. I can't recommend Laura enough! More...

We were able to get an appointment on short notice for a newborn photo shoot.  Laura was responsive to my inquiry and subsequent email questions.  The night before our appointment, she sent a reminder along with tips to prepare for the shoot. She was professional, friendly, and handled our son effectively and efficiently, all while capturing amazing shots.  She stuck to her two week turn around time on providing proofs and quickly gave us our files after we made our selections.  On top of that, she was very reasonably priced compared to others when I shopped around.Thank you for the wonderful experience and more importantly, the fabulous pics which we will treasure!

Laura and her assistant are baby whisperers and THE MOST patient photographers we have worked with... We had a newborn mini family session with our 3 boys and she was able to get some really great shots of them and our family. Even though the baby cried and the boys were running all over the place, the pictures turned out great. Her studio is filled with lots of natural light and has tons of props, as well as outfits for the mothers. More...

We have newborn twins and a 2 year old. Laura did an amazing job taking photos of our twins and our squirrelly 2 year old! She was able to capture the happy emotions of everyone on camera! We also loved her studio and props! All natural light and lots of prop options! We brought a couple of own things and she incorporated these beautifully! Highly recommend her!!! More...

Laura did a fantastic job with my newborn and her 2 year old sister. My 2 year old has never calmed down for photos and Laura was magical, capturing the most precious moments between her and her newborn baby sister. She is very patient and comforting and because of this we were happy with every single photo that we received. Laura's studio is filled with props, toys to keep toddlers entertained, and a lot of outfits. I would highly recommend using her services! More...

It was such a pleasure working with Laura. Booking and securing a time slot was so easy and she was very patient with my 1 year old for her cake smash session. Her studio is very welcoming and filled with lots of cute props for any age group. We loved how the photos turned out as well and will use her services again for various milestones! More...

We used Laura three years ago for my daughter's newborn photos and couldn't have been happier with the pictures. So it was an easy decision to use her again for my son's newborn photos last week. First, and most importantly, the photos turned out absolutely gorgeous once again! Before our session she sent us a short survey to get a better idea of what we were looking for. Sibling pictures were really important to us and she did an exceptional job capturing these! And that was no easy task with my never sit still, always busy 3 year old. But Laura was very patient with her! Additionally, her studio space is absolutely stunning and she keeps it nice and warm and cozy. She also has a ton (and I mean a TON!) of props/outfits/backgrounds. We are so happy with not only our pictures but with the entire experience! Thank you Laura!!!! More...

I took my daughter to the newborn session.  Laura was great.  She captured the moment of my daughter.I told her the colors I prefer for newborn session a day before, and she prepared it before I arrived.  It was around 2.5 hours session, but included changed baby's diaper and fed her.  Laura changed around 7-8 styles for my daughter, and all of them were so cute.  I received the digital files in 2 weeks and I was happy with the photo.  She gave me 84 photos and I love all of them.  I will highly  recommend her for new born/maternity photo.

Laura does an amazing job of capturing my child's essence (4 and 5 years old).  I would like Laura to capture her childhood and adolescent years as the future unfolds.  To find someone who capture maternity through childhood is difficult to find and we have found a gem in Laura & Brad Photo.  She is highly recommended.

My husband and I absolutely love our beautiful photos from the newborn photo session!! First of all, Laura is highly professional--she is very communicative and responded to my many questions throughly and promptly. Booking our session was a breeze with a quick questionnaire and email. When our baby boy arrived earlier than his due date, Laura was very flexible with her availability. When we met her for the first time at her home studio, she was warm, inviting, and most importantly, super gentle with our little newborn baby. Our experience of the session with Laura was smooth, relaxing, and fun. And her prices are definitely reasonable compared to most photographers in the area but her talent and the quality of her photos are outstanding. She gives you large number of high resolution images and every single one was amazing!! We look forward to booking future milestone photo sessions of our baby with Laura. We would highly recommend Laura to all our family and friends! More...

This review is long overdue and 2.5 years in the making! It was at that time I had my first son and booked his newborn photo session with Laura. We were so impressed with how amazing she was with newborns and the pictures came back quickly and more perfect than we could have ever dreamed. Since then we have booked four additional sessions and our family has grown to include a second son. Our most recent shoot was a family session(with an inquisitive 2 year old and 6 month old baby) and Laura was, as usual, so patient and easygoing...she is awesome with kids and makes the parents feel at ease which is huge! I get so many compliments on all our photos and would refer anyone to her. She's THE BEST! More...

We had a wonderful time with Laura during our newborn session and we love how our photos turned out.  She has a great studio and had everything set up for our newborn when we arrived.  Since we also have a toddler, Laura and her assistant were great at keeping our toddler focused to get great shots - our toddler usually doesn't open up to new people but Laura was able to get her engaged and she even let Laura carry her downstairs as we were leaving!  I would not hesitate to recommend Laura & Brad Photo for anyone who is lookin for newborn or family portraits.

Laura was absolutely amazing! Not only was she quick to respond to my inquiry but she was able to get us in quickly as well. Her studio is inviting, comfortable and super cute. She was kind and was so careful with my son, I was able to relax with her in charge. After the great in person experience I eagerly awaited the photos of my son. They were everything I wanted and more. She really captured the innocence and sweetness of my newborn and to top it off she got the photos to me ahead of the promised time. I would 100% recommend her, in fact I already have a friend who booked her! More...

I would definitely recommend Laura to anyone!  We did a maternity and newborn photo shoot with Laura.  The pictures turned out beautiful and our friends and family loved them (especially the newborn photos).  Laura was easy to work with and she made us feel comfortable during both shoots.  She was wonderful with our baby girl and her studio was clean and welcoming.  The room was on the warmer side to keep our little one happy and she stayed asleep for most of her shoot.  You also can't beat her prices considering you get the digital full resolution images as part of the package.

We had newborn photos done with Laura, and they came out beautifully! She was so patient with our son and knew exactly how to get him to cooperate for different poses. The photos were delivered two weeks later, as promised. They are high quality, and will be treasured for years to come. Without a doubt, we will be calling Laura for future family photos! More...

We absolutely love our newborn photos! From the get go, Laura was extremely quick with getting back to me via email about her newborn packages she offers. I was impressed by all of her amazing reviews on yelp and I have to say, they were spot on. When little one was born, I emailed Laura and she was able to quickly set up a session for us to come in the next week. When we arrived, Laura and her assistant (Jenni) immediately got to work. My mom and I were able to sit down and relax on Laura's couch and watch as little one got dolled up and had her pictures taken. Laura is gentle and I immediately trusted her with little one. After watching all the cute pictures be taken, I couldn't wait to see the finish product! She had the online gallery of photos up 2 weeks later! Such a quick turn around that we were thankful for! Our pictures turned our amazing and I can't wait to work with Laura again for future pictures of little one!! More...

WOW! Can you say baby whisperer?! That is literally what Laura is, and she happens to be an amazing photographer! We found Laura + Brad Photo because they happen to be near our home, but I chose Laura to capture our newest family moment because of her creative eye and experience with newborns. Her photos are great and she makes everything seem so easy. When we got our photos back, they were not posed feeling and really look cohesive when you put them all together for display. I will definitely be using them for our families future photo shoots! Thank you so much Laura for such amazing shots! We really appreciate it. :) More...

Laura and Brad are absolutely amazing! We hired them to take our wedding pictures July 2016 and they turned out absolutely perfect. Fast forward to February 2018 and we decided to have Laura take our first babies newborn pictures and WOW!! They are both so talented in what they do! My husband and I 100% recommend them and will for sure be using them in the future! Such a sweet couple too. More...

I found Laura with a Quick google search. She responded very quickly and was able to see me the very next day. I was nervous to see how my little one would do, giving the fact that she wasn't new newborn and pretty fussy. Laura was able to keep her content with all her cool baby gadgets. Need to get one of those whispering machine! Haha. We recieved our photos before the 2 week time frame. Which was super exciting, I couldn't wait to see them. We love all of them. Definitely going back for Family portiats and when our baby turns ONE. Thank you so much Laura! More...

We had a sibling/ cousin photo shoot done by Laura two weeks ago. Laura was amazing with the kids (ages newborn, 3, 5 and 8 years old). She was so patient and was able to get all the kids to participate and captured incredible photos. Each child had their own shots done individually as well and this included newborn shots! We are so happy with the outcome and can't wait to print and  frame them all. We will definitely be using Laura for future sessions. More...

I call Laura "the baby whisperer"! I must admit I was quite apprehensive to take my newborn son to her studio for his photo shoot. I could not imagine how she would be able to take cute photos of him, as he was so tiny and pretty fussy. My mom and sister accompanied me, and we were all amazed by how Laura soothed and calmed my newborn son. She was able to pose him in adorable positions during the shoot, and he was basically asleep the whole time! Laura is super cool and really sweet; she definitely has a way with babies. I had a great experience at the photo shoot and was SO, SO, SO happy with the photos she took of my son and me. Her turnaround time was really fast, and the photos are beyond gorgeous. I chose Laura because of her affordable prices (MUCH less than other photographers I contacted) and amazing Yelp reviews (which were 100% accurate). You really only have a short time period in which to have newborn photos taken, so I highly recommend Laura ~ she is a genius when it comes to newborn photography! More...

We absolutely loved Laura. We had a family newborn shoot for three hours and she and her assistant made it super easy and fun. She handled our newborn calm and warmly and she was able to bring out our three-year-old's personality which was reflected in the pictures. For anybody that has a toddler-you know the challenge of getting toddlers to cooperate and Laura did it in the most fun way. She clearly knows what she is doing. We got the most amazing pictures of our newborn and the family. She also has a lovely studio which is warm and welcoming. She has tons of props and easily incorporated a couple of props that we brought. The whole process was very easy from beginning to end. I would highly recommend her to anybody. She is professional, creative, talented and easy-going. More...

Such a great time and wonderful memories we have now after our newborn session with Laura! We are very happy and pleased by the quality of the pictures, Laura's professionalism and the flexibility of our requests she considered. Our baby was the last one she shot in 2017 on Dec. 31st, a good and fun way to finish this year! Everything went so smoothly, our baby slept and enjoyed to be taken in picture.We were lucky with our baby because he managed to smile many times even if he was sleeping and Laura captured these lovely moments with her camera. Laura and her assistant were very professional and efficient, they really know about babies making them comfortable, creating a positive and great environment to take the best pictures. I spent so much time reviewing different and so many photographers but we wanted someone with experience, recommendations, great quality of pictures, within our budget and allowing to get digital pictures of our session so we can create our own birth announcement and thank you cards. We are very happy with our choice and will probably plan a future session for his 1st year. Thanks again Laura! More...

I absolutely loved working with Laura for our Newborn photos. I found her after searching through Yelp and she responded to me right away when I contacted her. Once our baby was born, I emailed Laura and she quickly was able to schedule us for the following week! Laura and her assistant were super professional at the shoot and did a great job with the baby. She got all the pictures I wanted and I am so happy with the results! I can not wait to share them with all of our family and friends. I will definitely be using Laura again and have already referred one of my pregnant girlfriends to her! More...

I just had our family photos done with Brad & I couldn't be happier!! Honestly, I didn't even feel like we were taking pictures. It felt like more of an afternoon with my family, just hanging out on the beach playing with my kids. Brad has a great personality, which makes you feel relaxed. As a mom, I've always felt stressed doing family photos, I didn't feel that way at all this time. Brad was polite, funny & professional! He was making us all laugh the whole time, even my husband! Brad is more than just a photographer, he's an experience that you'll never forget!! I'm in love with our photos & so thankful for the images he captured!! When you book your family photo sessions with Brad, you will not be disappointed!! Thank you so much for an amazing family photo session!! More...

Laura took our maternity photos and will be taking our newborn photos soon. The maternity photos are beautiful - she even worked in our dog! We are so happy with how the photos turned out. She knew exactly what photos would look good and told us exactly how to pose, which is great for someone like me who is a little shy about getting professional photos taken. Not only was the quality of her work top-notch, but she was incredibly kind and professional and had the photo gallery to us in only two weeks, with a USB mailed to us shortly after. There's no pressure to buy photos - the pictures are yours! Her prices are super reasonable, especially when considering the quality of her work.In short, Laura was fantastic, her pictures were gorgeous, and we'll absolutely come to her again for more pictures as the baby grows up!

What can I say?  My daughter gave me a beautiful grandson, and photography was a must.  I live out of town, and looked on Yelp! for a reliable source.  All signs pointed to Laura.  Though we checked around, ultimately we decided on Laura & Brad Photography, and are we glad we did.Laura's abilities with infants, swaddling them, changing diapers, and getting the poses JUST PERFECT is second to none.My daughter is thrilled, and so am I.  I'm one happy gramma.

I was referred to Laura about a year and a half ago while pregnant with my first baby.  I had been searching and posting and asking people for someone great to capture this huge milestone in our lives, but wouldn't charge an arm and a leg!   I was getting so discouraged seeing prices in the THOUSANDS until a friend of mine referred Laura. I filled out her website form and within a few hours she had already gotten back to me.  She walked me through the whole process, answered all my questions ( I think I emailed her about 20 times) and was super helpful. Not to mention she offered more pictures than any other website I had seen (all actually) and was the most adorable!!  Our baby came early and she was very understanding of my worries about taking him out too early (first time mom probs) and we finally made it to her studio when our son was about 3.5 weeks.  She was AMAZING with him!  A true baby whisperer! She totally didn't mind me pulling up all sorts of Pinterest pictures and had so many great props and backgrounds in her studio.   We got the pictures about 2 weeks later and I was so so so happy with her work, she truly captured every detail of our sweet little newborn.Fast forward to about a week ago we knew we needed to have her again when it came time to take our family photos.  The location I picked wasn't one she had been to but you would have never known. She again was soooooo great with my now 14 month old and great at suggesting poses that weren't awkward prom poses  Finishing up, we love Laura.  She is so great at what she does and is so sweet and no matter how many emails I send her(a lot) she never makes me feel like I'm bugging her and is always happy to help.  I'm so happy we have found her and even happier that I found someone I can trust with capturing these special moments of or life.  My only regret is that I didn't find her before my wedding!

Laura is amazing. If you have a newborn take them to her to get your pictures done. It does not get any better. She was so good with our little boy he didn't cry at all.

My husband and I purchased the maternity and newborn photo package, and just received our maternity photos. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Laura and our photos! My husband and I had a special place in mind for the belly pics that Laura hadn't been to before and she was so easy going and open to our location. While we were taking the pictures she was extremely knowledgeable about positions, lighting, my hair, the water from the ocean, etc. When she asked if we had any suggestions I told her I just want to look pretty and not look like a whale lol (which being 33 weeks pregnant it felt like I was). She completely exceeded my husband's and my expectations. I'll be using the photos around the house, for thank you cards, and have already uploaded them to my Facebook page! Everything with Laura was easy, comfortable and left us feeling extremely happy. I would highly suggest her to anyone. I can't wait for when our baby arrives and we have our newborn photos! More...

Laura is an amazing photographer.  We did a family portrait session with her while on vacation in California.  She found an incredible location for us and, most impressive, she was able to wrangle our family of 8, including two very rambunctious 5-year-olds.  On our way over to meet Laura, we had children having meltdowns, cranky & sleep-deprived parents, and not very much excitement about taking a photo together.  Somehow, Laura turned it into a fun experience.  She was calm and patient, and knew exactly what to do -- a true professional.  Laura has a gift for making people feel at ease, especially children.  We usually end up with forced smiles from the kids, but Laura's images were so natural and truly captured their personalities.  And she knew how to handle the adults, too!  By the end of the session, we were all laughing & genuinely having a great time.  And the images were gorgeous!  She captured our family in such a beautiful, genuine way.  Thank you, Laura!!  We will treasure these photos for many years to come!

Laura did an amazing job capturing our baby girl's personality on camera! Before arriving at the studio, my husband and I were afraid that our baby would get fussy and cry once she woke up from her nap. However, Laura was so gentle with her that she did not cry throughout the whole session. We received the pictures after 2 weeks and we loved each and everyone of them! We will definitely recommend her to our family and friends! More...

This was our first time using Laura for newborn photos. We had wonderful first impressions; To begin, I was so excited to find a photographer that had reasonable prices for beautiful pictures! I was having the toughest time finding the right fit before speaking with Laura. Once I found her, she was quick to respond and informative. Also, my man's schedule was a little difficult to accommodate, but Laura made it so easy for us. Once we were in the studio, Laura made us feel so comfortable and right at home. She offered drinks and snacks then she kicked off her shoes and went right to work! She handled our son with the utmost care (and as first-time parents, we can be tough critics). We felt bad because we didn't have time to feed our son before arriving, so he wasn't very sleepy like Laura prefers. But she let us feed him in the studio anyway and helped us get our son to a sleepy state. Some tips: The studio is VERY warm in order to help comfort the babies; do not wear hot clothes! You'll be there for awhile. If you have personal props that mean a lot to you, bring them! Laura has some (mostly the baskets, blankets, and some head pieces) but basically anything the babies are holding in her portfolio pics are brought by the parents. Not to mention, she is great at incorporating them in her photos. I'm very happy with our experience! I look forward to using her in the future. I highly recommend her services. More...

I'll definitely recommend her services to all my friends in Orange County! More...

Laura is a true professional! From the moment I first contacted her regarding our daughter's 1st birthday session, I was truly impressed. Communication is extremely quick and we were able to set everything up for the session within a day. She chose the perfect setting for a photo shoot for our family and the pictures are absolutely stunning. Our daughter was being quite shy at first, but she quickly warmed up to Laura and we got perfect smiles and giggles. We would definitely use Laura again and refer friends/family. More...

I have to say I did have doubts about the costs of a professional photographer but Laura has definitely changed my mind. Her fee is reasonable and she is very helpful throughout the entire process.   I was in her studio corralling the three year old while she worked with my kids and the new baby so I saw first hand her remarkable ability to capture a moment.   She was personable, professional, direct, but also quick with a smile and put everyone at ease.  The whole family looked relaxed and natural. ( Not always so easy!).  She is no " fancy-dancy high brow" photographer, but a natural and down to earth hard working girl.    She is just GOOD.  Period. More...

Great experience with Laura.  Easy to book session date with her, and she helped a lot with choosing the right location for our family photos.  She knows OC well, including best times for the best lighting in each location.  The shoot went great and she was very patient with our two young children.   Photos look amazing.    The best aspect about her photo package is that you get to download (and own) the high quality originals, so you can do whatever you wish with them!   Most other photographers we looked at using had similar pricing for the photo shoot, but you had to also buy your prints and canvas through them (at ridiculous prices) or buy a very expensive package before getting access to the originals.   Laura offers printing of the images through her, but isn't pushy about it!   Would highly recommend!

Laura is awesome!  We booked Laura for a newborn photo session- what a great experience!  As a neonatal nurse, I was extremely impressed with how gentle and skilled Laura was with handling and positioning our newborn daughter.   She had great props on hand at her studio that made for beautiful photos.  We were so happy with how beautiful the photos turned out that we have already booked Laura for a family shoot later this year.  Thank you Laura!

Laura is an amazing photographer. She's patient and very good with children. Her studio is impressive and she is very organized. She has plenty of props to chose from for children's photos. The photos she captured of my family were exactly what I was looking for. I am so glad that I have all these memories to look back on. I highly recommend Laura for all your photography needs.

I can't say enough wonderful things about the photos that we just received from Laura for our maternity shoot! Working with her has been wonderful. She quickly got back to us after I emailed to setup an appointment. She worked with my husbands very busy traveling schedule to accommodate us on a weekend. From the moment we arrived at the site for shooting she was thorough, funny, and made us feel extremely comfortable. Taking photos by yourself can feel awkward, Laura directed me and my husband photo by photo as to where to place our hands, turn our heads etc...she made it pretty brainless for us which I appreciated! Less than 2 weeks we received our edited photos (which she gives you the full rights to!). She made our job of choosing which to frame extremely difficult!!! I can't wait for her to do our sweet girls newborn photos! Less than a month away. :) Laura, thank you again for beautifully capturing this special moment. More...

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Laura. We used her for newborn pictures for our son. First, she met us at our car and helped carry everything in to her studio which was very helpful with 3 kids and a c-section. Her studio is beautiful and she thoughtfully has it stocked with snacks, drinks, a changing pad, diapers and wipes. As soon as she started shooting I knew the pictures would be amazing. Laura is a baby whisperer! She took my son for 3 hours and and only brought him back to me so I could feed him. She was so patient and took her time coaxing him in to the most beautiful positions. She was even great with my destructive toddler and bored oldest son. It was a great experience. As I expected the photos were wonderful. I cannot wait to use her for our family photos this summer. Thank you Laura! More...

Laura is an excellent photographer and very very good with babies! She knows how to work with them and calm them down like no one else! We had a great experience at her studio with our 10 days old baby girl.  She took about 80 photos, took her time with each of them, and they all look amazing! Not only she is great at working with babies, she has the cutest props and has a great taste for mixing and matching them. Also, I shopped around a lot before choosing her and what I liked the most about her before even meeting her in person, was that her work quality is great and her price is decent compare to other competitors who do high level professional work like she does.  I highly recommend her for baby photos!

We absolutely loved our experience with Laura! We really cannot say enough good things about her work. She was so gentle with our baby girl and really made sure she was comfortable throughout the shoot- keeping the studio warm, having white noise in the background, and giving us a break for feeding. She is also very friendly and personable. As for the photos, they were absolutely gorgeous! We are so in love with every single picture she took! So many cute props to choose from and her studio is clean and beautiful. Highly recommend!!! More...

Laura is a fantastic family photographer and I highly recommend her. I was so impressed with her on-the-spot creativity and tricks to get the kids all smiling and looking the right way!  Laura works quickly and is fun, she puts you at ease. We are super happy with the extended family photos she did for my Parent's 40th Anniversary, she captured memories and moments that meant so much to us.Thank you Laura! More...

I came across Laura's photography work and decided to proceed with doing our maternity and newborn photo sessions with her. It was a great decision as my husband and I enjoyed both experiences immensely.  We loved how all the photos came out.  I love that Laura is unique in that you are able to get all the digital images from her and aren't limited to only a specific set of images which is the common case with other newborn photographers.  Her flexibility in this area was exactly what I was looking for.   Furthermore, Laura was quick with her turnaround time.  I was so excited to get our photos a week after the sessions.  Laura was professional and made the whole process enjoyable.  She was so great with our newborn baby.  She was able to accommodate lots of photo configurations and poses with the baby and neither session felt rushed.  I recommend Laura's services to parents and families out there.

We had a wonderful experience with Laura. She was fun, personable and great with my 3 kids! Taking pictures for us is a stressful time, with 3 children under the age of 6. And Laura did a really good job keeping me calm and working with us! We love our photos and highly recommend her services. More...

We cannot give Laura enough stars! Its been almost three years, and we continue to call Laura to take pictures of our family. For our second baby, we had Laura do her newborn photos because we knew she would do a great job, and she did. She is patient, fun to talk to during the photos, wonderful with kids, and has a real talent for capturing beautiful family moments. I highly recommend Laura! More...

Laura did an amazing job capturing the sweetness of our baby girl. As a first-time mom I had a lot of anxiety when looking for and choosing a newborn photographer because I was afraid of not liking the pictures and feeling like the opportunity was missed to capture the newness of it all. We chose Laura because she was always very prompt when responding to all my questions via email before we even booked with her. I felt like I knew what to expect during the shoot and the pictures were beautiful. She was extremely patient with my little one who refused to cooperate for the first hour of the appointment and we got all the special shots we wanted. We would definitely use her again! More...

Laura is an amazing photographer! I have triplets so to get three kids to all look and even smile is a challenge but every year Laura has managed to take amazing pictures of my kids. We have used Laura for the last three years and will continue to use her  for many years to come. This last year was by far our favorite family pictures and everyone that had received our Christmas card commented on the picture. Lauras finished product is always great, she takes pride in her work. She is always so patient with our family and so good with the kids. She has great ideas for shoots and offers many packages for any budget. I highly recommend her for your next family pictures!! More...

Laura did a wonderful job with our newborn photos.  She was easy to work with and the photos turned out adorable!   She brought a items with her (hats, basket, blankets) to use in the photos.  It was so hard to choose the cutest ones for our baby announcements because there were so many outstanding images.  The photos were available quickly and it's nice to have access to them right away.  The price was affordable and the quality was great!

Q&A

A lot of things make a great photograph from framing the picture with the background / foreground elements to lighting to using the right settings. For me personally I enjoy natural reactions rather than forced smiles. When I catch people just interacting and enjoying the moment is when I often find the genuine smiles and emotions.

Each type of session requires different questions, for instance a family session I may ask what features they like or don't like to help me pose them well. With a wedding I need to know more of what she/he is imagining in her/his album or on the wall. I want to get a sense of a bride and grooms style and hopefully couples pick us for our style and it matching their own and the questions become more of what don't you want.

I love the people. I really do love getting to meet new people and being able to be goofy with kids is a lot of fun. I find weddings a very beautiful moment to be a part of and it reminds me of my own wedding and how special that moment was for us.

Photography has always captivated my imagination. Leaving the mainstream job world was an easy choice as I wanted to able to do what I love in life; spending more time with my family, meeting people and traveling.

Clients should choose us if they love our work and our style. We give you what we want in a photographer, beautiful photos, we give you the hi resolution digital images with your session and a print release. I hope when the session is over you say "Wow we are done already? That was so fun!"
