I'm Laura...a southern wife, mom, and photographer based in rural Glen Allen, VA. I began my photography journey as a young girl with a pink and purple 110 film camera. Back then, I photographed everything including my dogs and little brother. After marrying Tim, my creativity exploded with each pup we adopted and after the birth of our son Noah. I began to take portraits for family and friends and a little business grew by word of mouth. In 2009, I opened an office in my Glen Allen home. While I've tried my hand at many genres, I now focus my work on high school seniors and families in Central Virginia and the Mid-Atlantic coast. 

I've developed a signature style that's full of light and painterly-like, rich color. I'm also huge fan of backlight, laughter, and wind-blown hair. My senior sessions are an artistic mix of casual poses, in-between moments, with hints of fine art. My family sessions take on a cozy, yet fun lifestyle feel. I adore the milestone moments of families and seniors because I've lived them and deeply understand their importance. I'm thankful to have the support of hundreds of clients who return year after year because of my relaxing approach to portraits. The relationships I've formed bring so much joy and continued inspiration. Thank you for stopping by!
