Thank You for stopping by and checking out my blog!  My name is Laurie, and I have been a photographer since 2000.  My specialty has always been maternity and newborn photography.  I have loved it, lived it, and have run a thriving business doing it for many years.  I have taught photography since 2010, and have mentored photographers from all over the world.  I also teach photoshop and have an extensive background in graphic design.

Mid 2015, I decided to add a new genre to my specialities…Woman’s Modern Portraiture.  I create all the clothing and props you see in my pictures.  Because of this, I also own and operate a Photography Prop Shop, where I sell all the items I use in my work and more!  It allows for another set of my creative skills to shine, and I’m in love with it!

I’m a mom, a wife, a sister, an aunt, and all the things that go along with a husband and wife who each have five brothers and sisters!  It makes for a very large, extended family!  I was born in California, grew up in Michigan (Berkley & Royal Oak), and moved to Southern California (Newport Beach) when I was 21.  I currently reside in Vancouver, Washington (about 15 min’s from Portland, Oregon).

I hope to inspire YOU!
