I met Meredith at my favorite local toy shop back in October, where her son was test-driving an awesome train set that would soon become his Christmas present. We chatted about her upcoming due date and the excitement of having her first little girl.
Fast forward three months and one coffee date, and I'm walking into Elowen's gorgeous pink nursery for her at-home newborn session.
I loved watching each person love on their new girl — and one of my favorite moments was when she got a train lesson from her big brother!
It was such an honor to get to know the Moore family and to transform such a long-awaited chapter in their lives into beautiful memories and heirloom art. Thank you, Meredith and Landon!
"We loved every step of our experience with Laura. Her work is beautiful and a real glimpse into a special moment in our lives, but beyond that, we now have a keepsake photo album for our daughter to look through and enjoy when she is older. Having worked with other photographers for our engagement and wedding, we ended up with great pictures that simply live on a memory stick. We still have not made a wedding album years later. Laura did a fantastic job putting an album together for us, which we wouldn't have had the time to do with a newborn, and now we have something tangible that can be passed down for generations."
