Today marks such a huge milestone for my little business. I have two big announcements, so let's get started!
I have a gorgeous new logo!
I'm so proud of how this came together. I teamed up with local watercolor artist Caroline Webb to create a beautiful lilac, which takes me back to Sundays spent at my grandma's. Every spring, I would wait for her giant lilac tree to bloom. When it finally did, my grandpa would pick one every week and leave it on our windshield before we headed home.
My grandma passed away last year, so my logo is a way to not only remember my grandparents, but to remind everyone about the importance of preserving family memories.
I then worked with my amazing husband Tyler to come up with the final logo design. He and Caroline did such a perfect job!
NEXT, something I've been putting together behind-the-scenes for months now...
Starting today, I AM A FULL-SERVICE PHOTOGRAPHER! (That's me shouting it from the rooftops.)
This means that instead of sending digital galleries, I’m going to help you turn your images into heirloom albums, conversation-starting wall art, beautiful keepsake folios, prints and more (you know, all those things you mean to do, but never get around to).
This is a change I truly believe in. Ever since I started my business, I encouraged my clients to see their photos as heirlooms. But delivering a digital gallery didn't fit that belief at all. Far too often, for so many reasons, these images didn't get printed — and what's the point of that? And what happens when technology changes, and those images are lost forever?
I have searched high and low to find heirloom-worthy pieces I stand behind. They’re created by some of the best, most trusted professional photo labs in the world, by hardworking people who are passionate about making something that truly matters.
In this new chapter of my business, we'll actually sit down together for a special Reveal Session (yummy snacks included!) and look at all your edited photos. Then we'll figure out which ones will look amazing in an album and on your walls.
At the end of our time together, you and your family will have something tangible to hold onto forever, rather than a few fleeting Facebook likes.
I am so excited to offer this much higher level of service, because I believe in your family's legacy. I believe in that day, decades from now, when your children will sit down with your album or hang up your framed photo and tell their children about the life and love they shared with you.
Welcome to the blog! I'm Laura, a Charlottesville-area photographer specializing in authentic, natural-light photography and heirloom print art. Hope you'll explore my little online home and reach out if you have any questions!
