I am so happy you’ve found your way to my page! Hello, I’m Laura and I’m currently living my dream as a photographer capturing amazing moments across the beautiful state of Maine! I photograph all things baby and family with roots in both traditional and lifestyle portraiture. While I absolutely LOVE shooting birth stories, I also document maternity sessions, fresh 48 sessions, lifestyle newborn sessions and even creative newborn sessions in my studio. So if you are expecting an addition to your family, I’d love to talk to you about creating your own Custom Newborn Collection so you can enjoy all aspects of welcoming your new baby without breaking the bank.
There are no words to express the joy and pure emotion you experience during the birth of your child. Whether it’s your first or your last, it’s an experience that can and should be professionally captured. With so much going on, a photographer present will not only ensure that every single detail is captured, but it will free up the ones you have by your side for support. I work very hard to creatively tell your birth story as it will be cherished for a lifetime and passed down as an heirloom. A photographic story where each image brings back a memory, a feeling, a thought, a tear.
Almost 7 years ago, I myself became a mother to the most handsome little boy. My mother was in the birthing room with me and was gracious enough to take a bunch of photographs. At the time I was not a photographer and was so busy planning for his arrival that a birth photographer didn’t cross my mind to preserve this once-in-a-lifetime experience. The photos were blurry, horribly exposed and lacked any sort of storytelling aspect, but I wouldn’t trade them for the whole world! Honestly, those images are the precise reason I became a photographer over 6 years ago and it has opened my world and eyes by being able to witness and participate in dozens of breathtaking birth stories. I am already looking forward to capturing yours so drop my a line 🙂
I am also a volunteer photographer for Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep and specialize in bereavement birth and newborns.
