Laura is an AIPP accredited portrait photographer, specialising in Newborns and Babies located in Warwick, Qld. A wife and mother to two beautiful boys, photography has been her passion through-out her life.
My interest in photography started in my childhood and I began working in the industry straight out of school. My first experience in the Dark room cemented my love for this 'magic" that was image making. I completed courses through my high school years and went on to complete Diplomas of Photography and Freelance Journalism.
Much of my skill and experience comes from on-the-job training in various roles within the industry, including; sales, print lab, photographer, studio manager. My career spans close to 20 years with the past 7 years running my own business.
I spent a glorious 4 years as a busy Wedding Photographer in the Whitsundays. I have been published in several Bridal magazines and also had an image of one of my own beautiful babies in a Parenting Magazine & online. My images have appeared in both print & online marketing for a High Profile Whitsunday Island Resort as well as a Wedding Planning Organisation.
Always striving to grow, I attended the Baby Summit in 2018. At this time, I was honoured to receive three bronze awards in the Rise International Photography Awards.
After relocating to South-West Queensland and taking some time off for my children, I re-launced my business during 2016, specialising in Family Portraiture. In particular newborns and children. I truly love this - capturing the special moments, the love and the relationships present in all Families.
I regularly attend workshops to maintain my high skill set and routinely update my training in safely posing newborns and children. I also enjoy collaborative editorial shoots to develop my artistic style - I have worked with professional Models and Hair & Make-up artists and am open to being contacted regarding these sessions.
Sessions are available through-out the Southern Downs, Darling Downs, Northern NSW and beyond!
I look forward to my photographic journey continuing and all the wonderful people I will meet along the way.
