It was a last minute decision to book a photographer for new born photos and Laura were able to schedule us in on Black Friday!  Boy, the photos turn out great. Laura has the cutest props and excellent eye for pictures perfect! I was debating if I'd like the family photos and glad I did. Who cares I haven't lost all the weight. The pose and my baby hide all my extra fat anyways! I'm definitely booking her for more sessions. Highly recommended! More...

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 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!

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!

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 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...

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 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!

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...

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...
