Meadowlark Family Session | Melissa, Chris & Emmy

Spending an afternoon with these three was time well spent. We wandered the grounds of Meadowlark 1939, chasing Melissa and Chris’ daughter, Emmy, as she found leaf after leaf full of color. We also loved discovering that wonderful crinkle noise that crunchy leaves make!

Family sessions like these bring me such joy. My favorite moments happen when we allow time to wander and experience moments as a family. We’re not worrying about capturing the perfect smiley photo but relishing in those small imperfect moments instead.


This is where I love sharing recent weddings and sessions, my travels, and life with my husband, and our three pets. When I'm not capturing a wedding day, I'm often enjoying the outdoors with Garrett, playing with our pups, or finding a new place to call home for the weekend. My passion is telling love stories, and I hope I get to fall in love with telling yours.

Let's meet!

Welcome to my journal! I'm Laura...

The Journal

Libby and Cars wanted a playful engagement session with lots of movement. We were able to time their session to enjoy the Japanese Tulip trees that bloom every year on Meadowlark’s grounds.

I met Kayla and Jon for their Montaluce Winery engagement session in January, and we had the best time on this chilly day. Even in the winter, Montaluce Winery and Resort has stunning views.
