Laura Matthews is dedicated to photographing families and high school seniors with a vibrant and sentimental approach.

I'M laura! wife, MOMmy, dog-a-holic, & portrait PHOTOGRAPHER

welcome, friend!

I'm a boutique high school senior and family photographer based in rural Glen Allen, VA. My love of old photographs, family heirlooms, and mixing them with new trends inspires my unique, yet timeless photographic style. I believe in capturing my subjects with a genuine and passionate approach. My galleries are a perfect mix of REAL moments and priceless portraits. In addition, my life revolves around my sweet, hunky husband, hilarious teenage son, 3 crazy lab pups, and 4 chickens! My goal is to create images for you just like I do for my own family...with my whole heart.
