hello I'm LAURIE BETH
I want to know you and I want you to know me!

A little background in my photography knowledge, which really started as a hated medium of art.

By high school I knew my profession would be in the arts. Creativity has always been a strong part of me. My mom wrote me a letter which in she said, "You always wanted markers, paints & paper."

But a camera was never an outlet of creativity I gravitated towards, in fact I hated photography. How can I sit and paint and create with my hands and someone just click a button and it's art? That was until college the end of my 2nd photo class where we did portraits, and I finally saw photography as an art, as MORE. I still desired to be a graphic designer, but the closed off mind to exploring photography was softened. So my 23 year old newlywed self decided to start a photography Facebook page, and my mom helped in scoring me my first wedding. From there it wasn't history, it was a slow and uncertain road, with lots of doubts and lack of confidence until it was SO CLEAR, that photography was fulfilling to me, and to those that I captured. I have if not ONE of the most important jobs when it comes to memories.

So I have finally evolved my business from a side gig along side a lot of jobs I thought were my dream jobs to it becoming my full time career 8 years after the start in 2013.

WHAT I LOVE TO DO

I love weddings, but they are just the start of your life!

After your wedding day I love when my couples reach out to capture their newborns and then continue to capture their families as they grow! Cell phone photos are great, but what about having someone capture you and your family in the moment just loving on your babies?

 

What makes me different then most photographers?

I was a childcare teacher (& now a mother). I will take the time to get to know your shy child, I'll chase that wild child around, I will take the time to hear where they would like their photo taken at and even give them the opportunity to make the crazy faces! Trust me - it also helps them to be comfortable.

MY APPROACH

Capturing all the
emotional moments

I'm a memory person in that I recall moments, names, songs and places. I always say it's a love/hate relationship, but thankful with a job as a photographer it's a love relationship! Your wedding day is beautiful however you celebrate and whoever celebrates it with you! It's a day of joy and excitement, and my job is to capture that for you to have and to hold from your day forward!

I love all the emotions that come with a wedding day be it nerves, excitement and anticipation! Being authentically yourself on your wedding day and before helps me! I'm an open book and love to be transparent in who I am. I want you to be just as comfortable with me as I can be with you!

For family sessions I'm not going to make your children stand still for

30 minutes! There is always the aim to capture that one moment of everyone looking and smiling, but my favorite moments of family sessions are snuggles, tickles and giggles! Candid moments are truly the most artist moments of family sessions.

I'M READY TO BOOK

I promise we will have fun and make those memories last!
