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

hello, friend!

I'm a custom high school senior and lifestyle 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 a genuinely and with a passionate approach. My galleries are a perfect mix of REAL moments and priceless portraits. In addition, my life revolves around my sweet and handsome husband, adorable teenage son, 3 spoiled lab pups, and 4 talkative chickens! My goal for the last ten years has been to create images for you just like I do for my own family...with my whole heart.
