CENTRAL VIRGINIA Family & senior photographer
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 have experience in many genres, I now focus my work on high school seniors and families in Central Virginia and the Mid-Atlantic coast.
