Proud Michigander, puppy mommy to Sparkplug, nacho slut, quoter of The Big Lebowski and Monty Python and the Holy Grail, always on the lookout for the next British detective show.
I'm Laura, and I am the woman with the camera (or two). Robert is my partner and may come along on wedding days to make sure I don't get too off-schedule and capture all the important moments right alongside me.
This is NOT about the prom pose.
REAL moments are what I live for. The way your partner really hugs you. The way your eyes sparkle when you look at your precious child. The way your grandparents hold each others’ hands. I am not going to put you into a one-size-fits-all mold because it makes cute photos. What makes for photos that you will come back to for YEARS are the real moments. The photos that reflect who you and those you love really are. THAT is what I am always striving to capture - that’s the good shit.
Settle in to a 3-4 hour long shoot where we work together to document a slice of your life. We will visit a few locations and involve an activity or two that is special to who you are as a person, couple, or family. We will cap the day off with some portraits against a gorgeous backdrop.
The aim for this shoot is to authentically and intentionally craft it to tell your story. Your life is beautiful - let's celebrate it!
For those of you with a more limited scope for your portraits and a tighter schedule, more abbreviated portrait shoots are available.
We will shoot in one location for up to 90 minutes. A very few number of these shoots will be available each season, so don't delay in reaching out and getting something on the calendar!

I'm not one of those photographers who is going to try to convince you to elope in Bali because I want that location in my portfolio. Instead, I want to travel with you to locations that are special to you and are a part of your story. Did you get engaged in Glacier National Park and want to go back there to relive those memories? Are your parents from Scotland and you want to have a family gathering with a photographer as a witness? Is your favorite thing exploring new places and you want an epic portrait shoot in Joshua Tree? I am IN.
Aside from being a photographer, I am also a flight attendant. Travel is kind of my specialty. Planning trips is absolutely a love language for me, and I am going to be there for you every step of the way. Let me use my travel knowledge to help you make your shoot stress-free and special.
