stress-free process

fun for the entire family

portraits you will love

Your family's portrait deserves to be awesome.

I get it, family portraits are important. Children grow up so quickly and capturing these fleeting moments is so crucial during that stage of their lives.  It can also be overwhelming with whom to hire and where to start.  I help family plan a great location, choose the best outfits, and pick a time of year and day that will produce the very best portraits. 

Not just another boring session...

All my family sessions take place outdoors, not in a studio. I have several local parks that I know have fabulous light and backgrounds to capture authentic beautiful portraits.  I am  happy to make recommendations depending on your family's needs, time of year and time of day. I am open to a location of your choice, any permits that may be needed are the responsibility of the family. Sessions begin at $150, click below to schedule your call today so I can answer any of your questions.

Why choose printed products over digital.......

Let's face it, we live in a digital world. 

I understand the desire to have a digital copy of your portraits. That is why I include a digital device version for you with every picture ordered.  This way you can have them on your mobile phone, tablet and computer to enjoy digitally as well as have a professionally printed copy for your desk, wall or in an album. 

What if you had no pictures to show your future grandchildren of their parent when they were little??! It worries me that so many family get only digital pictures from their photographer. Why, you may ask... because technology changes so quickly and will continue to change and become obsolete. When I started my  studio I provided images on a DVD, then USB and now it is digital download via web since all the other medias are or have become obsolete. Having a physical printed portrait will never go out of style, you will always have it. to cherish, share and remember those moments.

How does it work if you don't just receive the digital pictures?? When you book your session and pay the session creative fee you will also book your in person (or via zoom if you live out of state) ordering appointment. This is when you will get to see all the pictures from your session as well as all the wonderful products that I offer. There are no minimum requirements, but most families will spend $300 on printed products.

Laura has photographed so many important moments in our life. Family photos, our wedding, our two children's  8th grade graduation photos. We'll continue to use her for all of our photos in the future. I honestly can't imagine having someone else handle these moments in life. She's amazing in every way! 

Dixon Family

My wife and I hired Laura for our wedding for photography. We have continued to utilize her photography services for multiple life events! She is a pleasure to work with, has great spots, and produces awesome work. I highly recommend Laura to anyone that is looking for a great professional and connection.


Laura is as charming and skilled as she is professional. She has been photographing my family for three years now and somehow manages to capture beautiful pictures despite my often uncooperative kids. Her prices are shockingly reasonable for someone so talented, and that's without her specials (referral deals, packages, etc.). Laura also photographed my dear friends' wedding in Chicago, plus engagement pictures, and they could not be more pleased with her work. I highly recommend Laura Meyer Photography for both special occasions and lifestyle/family sessions.


"If you LOVE what you do,
you'll never work a day in 
your life."

I am very blessed to absolutely love what I do. I enjoy meeting new people and being an important part of big moments and celebrations. It is always an honor to be chosen by a couple and helping them plan for amazing wedding pictures, documenting the memories of that important day for them to enjoy for a lifetime. Many of my wedding couples chosen me to take their first family portraits or have me help them with their small business photography needs. Entrusting me to be their lifelong photographer and referring me to family and friends looking for beautiful, timeless photography.

I am a Columbia College Photography Graduate as well as a certified member of the Professional Photographers of America. When I'm not taking pictures you can find me traveling, playing with my dogs Kodachrome and Sophia Cujo, or planning for my next adventure!

One of my favorite photographers Henri Cartier-Bresson said "It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera...they are made with the eye, heart, and head." There are many photographers out there but I offer not only beautiful pictures but an unforgettable experience. I follow my heart when capturing pictures and I am so blessed to be able to be a full-time professional photographer.
