Caitrin’s maternity preview – Gainesville maternity photographer

My approach to photographing  modern maternity sessions is to try to not only photograph mom to be with her growing bump – but also the relationship between mom to be and partner.  Especially if this is your first child.  In just a few weeks it  will no longer just be the two of you – but now the 3.  Congratulations to Caitrin and Pat on the birth of their healthy baby boy.  I’m super excited to meet him this week.


Beautiful B – Gainesville, Florida head shot photographer

“B” is a theatre major at the University of Florida.  She is super talented and I was thrilled to photograph her for her portfolio.  We spent the first half of her session in the studio doing traditional head shots and then we went about 2 minutes to a lovely park to photograph her outside and in a different outfit.  We had such a blast!!

Kim Bennett - Thank you Laurel. These are amazing and we had such a great time with you!January 23, 2015 – 1:12 am

The ‘S’ Family Preview – Gainesville Florida family photographer

The “S” family is one of my very special clients that have become part of my family. I have photographed their growing family for several years – when Mom was pregnant with baby number 2 – now with their newest edition – a little girl – their family is complete.  I can only imagine what life for the only girl is going to be with three older brothers to watch over her!

“L” Extended Family Session – Gainesville Florida family photographer

“You can kiss your family and friends good-bye and put miles between you, but at the same time you carry them with you in your heart, your mind, your stomach, because you do not just live in a world but a world lives in you.”  – Frederick Buechner
