Watch carefully
the magic that occurs
when you give a person 
enough comfort
to just be themselves.

Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.

I am so excited you are here and can not wait to meet you.  I am small town girl who grew up in southern Alberta surrounded by and so lucky to be close to the mountains AND prairies. I have 3 children (1 boy - 11 and 2 girls - 9 & 7), we are a crew of absolute goof balls and I wouldn't have it any other way. My seriousness for capturing memories increased a million times after having my own children and realizing how important imagery is for that moment in time.

I have always lived for photographs and documenting moments from the early ages of my teen years (the roof of my 1989 K-Car was COVERED in photos! lol  Then I worked at Sears portrait studios many moons ago and I have never not had a camera in my hand.  Today I specialize in brand/product, lifestyle family, maternity + newborn photography.  I create timeless imagery delivering a little piece of my soul in every gallery and having SO much damn fun doing it.

I shoot both indoors & outdoors (*preferably at sunset when the lighting is magical) I have a small indoor space at my home surrounded by all things plants AND I am in the works of a lot more growth this year!!!!

I got you for all your photography needs and I am WELCOME to any questions at all.  Please email me if you have any at all.

OMG Where do I start???
Laura is amazing! She is so easy to work with and passionate about what she does, her excitement is contagious. We have used her for family and wedding photos and both times I was amazed and speechless from the photos. I couldn't have have even dreamed of better pictures. 
She is probably the only person that can get my husband to smile in pictures. We brought her with us to Mexico and she was like part of our family. She went above and beyond to scout out locations with me instead of relaxing on the beach. She was open to and was willing to try shots she has not done before like having us jump in a pool. She paid so much attention to detail. All of our family and guests loved her and just when I thought she couldn't be more amazing, she posted the best teaser pictures. The suspense was killing me tilI received all of out pictures and went through the pictures about 5 times that night because I couldn't believe how perfect they were.

Laura is incredibly talented. She knows how to calm your nerves while seamlessly capturing beauty in otherwise ordinary moments. We loved everything about our engagement session. The photos turned out even more amazing then we ever could have imagined! I'd recommend Laura 100 x over. Can't wait to see how she captures our Wedding!

Laura is such a beautiful person. What you see is what you get. Laura is wonderful with our kids and her kind, funny and bubbly personality will have you laughing... my husband will even admit to a good time while taking family photos! I cant believe how quick we got our photos and how many stunning images we have. Laura was just as excited to share our photos as we were to receive them!! She truly loves her job and it shows in her breathtakingly beautiful images. We have used Laura for the last three years and will continue to use her to capture all our family moments.

Oh gosh, where to even start with this incredible lady!
Laura made all my wedding dreams come true! I was completely blown away with the photos we got back from our wedding. Laura was amazing to work with! Accommodating, professional and most of all so much fun she was laughing with our group all day. We didn’t get a single picture that I didn’t LOVE!
100% someone you need to check out if you are in need of a photographer! 💕💕~Marshal & Emma

Laura is not only a kind and genuine person but an amazing photographer! We had so much fun working with Laura for both our maternity and newborn sessions. Laura was able to capture our most special moments and we will be forever grateful for these photos.

If I could give her more than 5 stars I would! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We had out engagement and wedding pictures taken by Laura and they were FANTASTIC. Despite not being overly photogenic, Laura someone managed to make us look like models and I have never gotten more compliments on pictures than the ones taken by her! I would recommend her 11/10 times. She is friendly, makes you feel relaxed, is hilarious and sweet, and TALENTED. In 50 years when we're looking back on our wedding pictures I know I will be so so so happy that we went with her because those pictures are ones that we will treasure forever. She captured the most special moments that would have been lost otherwise.

Seriously amazing. Book her for everything ❤️
