I’m so glad you stopped by! I’m Laura and my photography studio is located in the small town of Watseka in East Central IL. Mostly I’m a busy mom of 3, but I am also blessed to work with many people in this area at special stages of their lives through photography. I do a lot of sessions in my studio, but also shoot at area outdoor locations. I’ve been doing this for over 10 years now. In the last several years I have specialized in baby & family photography, both in my studio and on location, and I LOVE it! I do also shoot a handful of high school seniors every year as well.
My clients often tell me how much they appreciate my patience with their children during sessions. I have a lot of experience photographing children and babies and I love to let little ones set the pace for the session, and follow their lead for natural poses. I also hear a lot how thankful parents are that I work as quickly as I can- extremely long sessions aren’t my thing!
I am married to Phil, who is also self employed, running a video production company. We work in the same building in downtown Watseka, so you might get to say hello to him if you are there at the right time. He is my #1 encourager, and my biggest help in running my business, even though he is busy with plenty of his own projects. We have two daughters and a son that keep us on our toes. Our lives are pretty full and we feel so blessed!
We love small town living! Iroquois County has become our favorite place to be. Not because there is anything particularly exciting here, but because the people in this farming community are truly the best! This is the area I primarily serve, and I so appreciate being able to keep my work local. My work is almost entirely shot at locations right in Iroquois County. I particularly love working on location at area farms and properties.
I love the art I get to create for you through your memories. These images will only increase in value to you and your loved ones as the years pass by. I would love to take meaningful portraits of you and the people you love!
