about Laura

This is always the hardest part of building a website! You’d think I’d love to tell my whole story here, but it just feels awkward to write a bio about myself. At the very least, I’ll try to sum up a few things you might like to know about me.

I studied commercial photography at Cal Poly, up in San Luis Obispo, and graduated in 1999. For about 5 years, I worked as a commercial photographer’s assistant, and then took several years off to explore other interests. In 2005 I married my sweet husband Jason, and pretty soon after that our two little girls arrived. Something about having children and watching them change so quickly really inspired me to photograph them on their own terms. I never tire of playing with toddlers and catching that moment when they do something perfectly and earnestly wonderful.

Fine Art Newborn photography has been a growing field for about the last 10 years or so, and when I saw some of the wonderful images being made I was just smitten. Love, love, love, I just can’t get enough of it. I started working with newborns in 2010, and they are always my favorite sessions. In 2012, I changed my studio and expanded my schedule to be able focus on our growing Newborn clientele, although we still offer a limited number of sessions for babies, toddlers, and young families.

I absolutely adore my job. I think that it can often be difficult for parents to capture photos that really embrace their childrens’ sweet faces and unique personalities. I love to see my clients’ faces light up as they look over their images, and I’m so grateful for all the lovely and sweet families I’ve worked with in the last 5 years!
