I am an artist, a photographer, and most importantly a mother. These three things truly describe who I am, what I am 'about', and why I was meant to be here.
Beginning this photography journey 8 years ago, I fell in love with documenting my babies and all of their special details that make them so incredible. I'm thankful I picked up my camera many years ago to learn this amazing art form.
I am passionate about learning film photography and shoot digitally with a film aesthetic. I strive for simplicity and minimalism in every session and my work has been described as authentic and honest. 
I have more to say when we meet and I would LOVE get to know who you are and what you are 'about'.  
Until then, take a look around and if you feel a connection with my work I would love to hear from you.

And my most FAVORITE job title is that of 'mommy'. I have three amazing kids that follow me around daily giving me lots of love and kisses and making me laugh constantly. They are my inspiration for everything that I do and I thank my lucky stars every day that they were gifted to me.

I have been in my commercial studio space for over 5 years and it is my home away from home.  I spend many hours there being a creative and it really is my happy place.  I am passionate about learning film photography and shoot digitally with a film aesthetic. I strive for simplicity and minimalism in every session and my work has been described as authentic and honest.

Hey there, it's so nice to meet you! I'm Laurie I thank you for stopping by.  I am a portrait photographer specializing in maternity, newborn, and family photography.  My studio is located near Chicago, Illinois in Homer Glen.  Biographies and about me pages have always been tricky for me to write, and according to all of the guides and blogs, I am supposed to write charming and lovely things about myself to make you fall in love with me. So here we go, Ha!

There is nothing more irreplaceable than having those memories that you cherish documented. I am thankful I picked up my camera years ago and I appreciate every step (and fall) I have taken to get where I am today.

My entire world in three small bodies. My oldest, with her fiery personality and kind heart. My middle child, the bravest and strongest girl I have ever met. And my littlest, the most gentle of souls and my boy who will always be my baby. 

THESE THREE

My family and I enjoy vacationing to warmer locations.  We love beaches and ocean waves. Dreaming of Greece, Italy, Australia, Scotland, Ireland, Hawaii, oh the list goes on and on.

TRAVELING

In my spare time you will find me playing and writing piano, listening to music, watercolor painting, photographing my children & floral stills, and learning the art of film photography.
