Laurie has provided professional photography services to a wide range of clients for the last 8 years . Her amiable personality is perfect for making folks feel comfortable as she captures their weddings, senior portraits or family photos. She also has an uncommon ability to capture landscape, real estate, wildlife, and you guessed it, outdoor lighting! It goes without saying, the camera never leaves her side.
Laurie was born and raised in the PNW, where she learned to love the outdoors. Gardening, fishing, whale watching, and bird watching are among her favorite things to do. She loves any avenue where her creativity can flourish, so one day you may find her painting or arranging flowers, and the next she’ll be sewing or making music with her friends. Now that she and her husband have raised 5 children of their own, they are enjoying watching them make lives for themselves, and are looking forward to being able to travel, and of course, grandchildren.
