hi, I’m laura. It’s so Nice to Meet you.

Hi, I’m Laura! I am a mum of three – for the past 15 years, I’ve been creating award winning photographs which adorn the walls of my clients homes and are proudly shared with family and friends. 

It wasn’t till I had my own children that I truly realised how much of a treasure a single “photograph” could be. Memories so precious, but oh so fleeting, can be frozen in time and preserved for future generations.  I am so grateful to have the opportunity to capture the memories of families across New Zealand. Everyday I am reminded that photography isn’t for today, it’s for our future. I literally am so grateful to do this for a living.

The woman Behind the Camera

I grew up knowing I was going to join the military, so when I applied for the Air Force I saw “Photographer” as an option, I thought how neat would that be to do for a living!

 

I sat in the recruiting office and while I didn’t have any proper experience, my passion for taking photos must have shone through. I was one of four recruits that got accepted into the photography trade in the Royal New Zealand Air Force.

 

That’s where my journey began and MY GOSH what a journey it’s been.

 

Once I had children of my own, being able to take beautiful photos of them has become such an absolute treasure.

 

I get to freeze those memories of those important little milestones.

 

I am reminded each day that photography isn’t for today, it’s for our future.

 

I am so grateful to do this for a living.
