Heya! I have a new and improved blog! Check it out
here yo!


Pregnancy and Newborn Baby Magazine

My City Baby is an awesome online resource for pregnant mamas and new mothers. I am one of their photography vendors, and I'm thrilled that they are using an image of mine in their national ad appearing in the next 3 issues of Pregnancy and Newborn Baby Magazine! Look for it on newsstands the end of the month. And a special thanks to Eli who continually surprises me as one of my favorite lil' models! YeYaH!


Spa Scotta grand opening!

Spa Scotta celebrated its new location last Friday and I grabbed a few shots of the cool space before heading to another event. I wish I could have stayed and celebrated more! The spacious and super chic spa is a feast for the senses, and I am so impressed with how far Jessica has taken it! Ladies- you have to check out the luxurious services and plan to spend a day there spoiling yourself. You deserve it! Valentine's day is coming up, right?!

The other side of the lens...

Andy Reynolds creates brilliant and hilarious images, many that are on Getty Images. He is easily my favorite commercial photographer, and sometimes I'm lucky enough to participate in his silly antics. We did a fun session this weekend, and I found some older images he took of me on Getty today. I forget how daunting it can be to be on the other side of the lens...! Oh yah- Erin Skipley, who I refer ALL of my brides to, did the hair and make-up for this shoot. I'm certainly surrounded by some brilliant people.


Hot mama!

My beautiful friend Sarah is due any minute! She had a gorgeous wedding in September '06 at her husband's family's farm on Whidbey Island, and it's so exciting that they're starting a family now. We did a casual session at her home last week and ended up talking more than shooting. We had fantastic light that afternoon that made for some great images in their west-facing home. I can't wait to meet their new little one!!


Grey Grand Opening

My favorite new art gallery is also a posh lounge! My friend Erik Guttridge opened Grey this month and it is easy to see how this can be a local favorite. The interior details are gorgeous, incorporating a mix of century-old wood and new steel finishes. I documented the build-out for this space and it has been awesome to see the transformation over the last few months, and finally the crowded floors for the grand opening. Congratulations Erik!

Craig Williams Interiors

"Oh my GOD, Laura! These look spectacular! (I type this as though I'm surprised...lol). Thank you SOOOO much for getting these done so quickly. You are the best!"

Seattle is filled with many creative, small business owners, and
Craig Williams
is one of my favs. This morning he was a guest on Chat with Women, serving up fantastic design tips. Here are some images from his latest design-on-a-dime make-over.

I celebrated my 31st birthday on the white sand beaches of Cancun last month. I hope to make this a birthday tradition.


Just around the corner from Santa's workshop, Eli busted out his hip-hop moves...

Christmas cutie!

I've been photographing Eli each season for over a year now. He is one of my favorite subjects so of course we had to head downtown this holiday season to play.
