Hey there, thanks for visiting! Laura Mae Photography was born out of a desire to capture the beauty of our growing daughter, Evelyn Mae. With every passing year my passion for photography grows. Nothing fills my heart quite like delivering a gallery of beautiful, timeless photographs! No, really, I love it!
But enough about photography for a moment. Who am I, what makes me tick? I am a wife, mother and self-proclaimed animal lover, including household pets and one very special horse who moved all the way to Virginia with us from my home state of Michigan. Yes, that means if you’re from the South, I have a funny accent! When I’m not with my family you can find me at the barn or volunteering at church.
My heart for you and your family is that you *enjoy* your photography session experience, so that in addition to timeless photographs, you will come away with positive memories of your time together as a family. Put your fears aside about how your three year old will do with holding still and smiling for the camera! I’ll chase your kiddos around, make them laugh and when the time is right, we’ll pull everyone together for that perfect shot!
I can’t wait to hear from you, get to know your family and of course deliver those priceless photographs!

I wanted a few simple, yet beautiful baby pictures of my little boy and Laura gave me just that. This was a great, fun, easygoing experience for my wild kiddos and myself. I am very grateful and totally in love with the photos.


Laura Mae Photography was an easy, fun experience to capture our growing boy and sweet family this year! Everyone loved receiving our Laura Mae photography prints this Christmas!

Working with Laura was such a pleasure! She listened to all my ideas and gave me exactly what I wanted and more. She was up for anything and was so much fun to work with! I would recommend her to anyone!

I contacted Laura about doing a “Just Because” shoot with my guy and we loved every minute of it. She incorporated his guitar into our photos and even met us at a location we felt best represented us. We had a lot of fun and it was a very natural shoot. We will continue to work with her.
