Gainesville Florida  photographer Laurel Housden Photography bio picture

If you stick your tongue out – I’m gonna take it! I know it’s super stressful for the year end holiday photograph but if you come to your session prepared to have fun – I’ll do the rest! Of course we’ll take those “holiday card portraits’ but the rest of the time, lighten up and I promise we’ll get authentic expressions and have a little fun at the same time!

This is my fifth session with lovely little “E” in the last 18 months and I so love watching her grow.  We captured a few images with her and her big brother and Dad at the Kanapaha Botanical Gardens last week.  I just love this weather!! Finally no attacks of mosquitoes or the humidity! I will be away for the Thanksgiving break but I still have availability for either a Mini or a Full Session up until Christmas Eve.  Check out my calendar here. 




Fall portrait sessions are in full swing and this lovely family was the first of the season.  We hung out at the Kanapaha Botanical Gardens in the late afternoon and captured these fun photos.  It’s very easy to reserve a session – all the details are over on this page.  You can choose between a Mini or Full Session – and most of my sessions are scheduled at the Botanical Gardens with complimentary entry.  Let  me know if you have any questions!


It truly is an honor when I get the chance to photograph a growing family. It was not that long ago that I photographed little Caroline’s 6 month session – and now Mom is pregnant with baby No #2.  The last time I saw Miss Caroline – she barely had any hair – and now she’s walking and smiling even brighter – and has a beautiful head of hair.  Mom & Dad have decided to wait until delivery to find out if they will be introducing a little brother or sister.  That is super exciting!!!
