Motherhood is something more than just to be survived. 

Motherhood is a season to fully embrace with love, nurture, compassion and all the feels. Sure, we have days when we operate fully in “survival mode” but we push through (with copious amounts of coffee and a good dose of humour) to enjoy the amazingness of creating and celebrating life.

Hi, I’m Laura, a coffee-loving, outgoing introvert with a passion for motherhood and photography.


I have three small children under three and have been enjoying life on the West Coast of BC with my husband for over 9 years.

Motherhood has given me the opportunity to become a recovering perfectionist who is learning to embrace the real, the authentic, the messy and the chaos. (Though some days I’m admittedly better at this than others.)

I believe in creating a space for families to breathe and just “be.”


Let your kids run haywire, melt down, fall down, or break down – then brush it off, get up and keep on loving. Let them be as charming or as dramatic as they are in real life, and we will capture it all in a beautiful way. I’m here to stand with you and say, “Yep, mama, me too!”

I want you to show up and just love on each other, because that’s where the magic truly happens.

Let’s break the stereotype of a traditional family photo session.


• swoon over how soft and squishy your babes’ cheeks are when they lay their heads against yours.

• appreciate the tiny curls, the fistfuls of shirt, the soft lashes and the imperceptible moments in between sleeping and waking.

• want to freeze in time all these little details because while the days are long, the years are so short.

(me too!)

• embrace imperfection, knowing you don’t need to be all “put together” all of the time.

• welcome grass-stained knees and straw bits in hair because what matters most is the look on your child’s face.

• believe real and tender moments trump “smiling and happy always for the camera” moments because…

You know that there is real beauty in exactly how your life is right now.

It’s exhausting pretending to be something we’re not, so let’s not do it in photos either.

Who you are, JUST as you are, has tremendous value and is worth capturing.

You bring you, and I’ll bring the coffee ;).
