Laura Walter Photography

    I believe in real moments and heartfelt conversations on the front porch. In the kinds of family photos that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come. Whenever I pick up my camera, I strive to create beautiful and emotional images that tell a story and showcase the beauty of both the people in the images and the world around them.

    I believe that your family’s stories deserve to be told. I take a documentary approach to photography, and as a lifestyle photographer my goal is not to photograph your family posing for me, but to capture your family enjoying time together.

    I want your session to be relaxed and fun. It is my hope that you will leave your session with memories that you will treasure as much as the images you receive.  Your gallery may include a few images, with everyone looking at the camera and smiling, but it will not be because I told you to.

    I’ll talk you through the whole process with posing suggestions and activities for you to do together. I will prompt you and keep you moving throughout your session, so you never wonder how you’re doing. Just have fun and be yourself.
