No matter what stage of life you’re in right now, beauty and connection exist within your family, and it’s worth documenting.

Who you are, JUST as you are, has tremendous value.
YOU are why I do what I do.

I’m Laura, a lifestyle photographer for families and weddings in Coquitlam, BC and the Lower Mainland.  

Wife.  Mother. Coffee lover.

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.

I have three small children under three and have been enjoying life on the West Coast of BC with my husband for over 14 years.

The foundation.

While I am absolutely in the session of life dominated by tiny humans and endless messes, where it all started is the foundation of our home.  One day, as they say, my house will be quiet and clean, but the person still standing beside me will be my spouse, my partner, my best friend.  This is why I refuse to niche down to a single genre and specialize in both families AND weddings.  Documenting the day where a family begins with the words “I do” fills my heart.

So grab a cup of coffee, come stay for a while, and let’s get to know each other.

It’s exhausting in life trying to pretend to be something you’re not, so let’s not do it for photos either.






A session with me is a safe space for families to just BE rather than a place to perform.

Ever since I was small, I dreamt of being a photographer.  I didn’t think I would actually do it.  I didn’t think it would actually become a reality because it seemed more prudent to get a desk job, or a “9 to 5” job in order to support my family rather than do something like this.

I gave that idea up for photography because life is more than just about the money.

Life is about building into other people’s lives and having the time to do that.  I mean yes, the memories matter and the event matters.

But what matters more than that is the people themselves.

Because it’s not about me.

This business isn’t about me.  Why I take photos isn’t about me.

It’s about the people that I shoot, the families that I shoot – the events, the moments – the creation of that. 

It’s about building relationships with you.
