Welcome, and thank you for visiting me here! I’m Laura, a lifestyle photographer living in Frederick, Maryland. I was born in Tucson, Arizona, and while I adore the snow and the seasons here on the East, I'm still very much an Arizona girl at heart!

First and foremost, I'm a mom of 4 kids, 2 boys and 2 girls, which make life both chaotic, messy, loud and beautiful, and a wife of a pretty amazing husband. My family is everything to me. Making memories, exploring the world, being in the moment, being together, seeing the world through my children's eyes and soaking in every little detail are my favorite things. This carries over to my approach to photography because I go into each and every session thinking "if this were my family, what would I want to remember?" I see all those moments and details because they are my life too. 

Some random facts about me, in case I haven't talked about myself enough (seriously, isn't that the most awkward thing to do?!): 

  • Sushi is my favorite food, followed very closely by a good ol’ greasy cheeseburger. 

  • I love traveling! My family goes to Disney World every other year, and we are also big fans of cruising. Beaches and endless food? Ok! 

  • I love being outdoors. Hiking, kayaking, biking, etc!

  • I am ridiculously sentimental

  • I listen to Podcasts in the car instead of music, unless my kids are in the car in which case I listen to the same songs over and over and over and over and over and over...

  • I have a Master's degree in Education (that I don't even use, but will be forever paying the bill...)

  • I put more creamer in my coffee than coffee. 

  • I am a night owl, even if I do regret it in the morning.

  • I am obsessed with documenting my family's story.
