So glad you've found me, here is to getting to know one another better!
I am born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and lovingly call Walnut Creek home. I am a mother first to a 70 lb. chow/aussie rescue, secondly to a little lady born in 2014 and third a son we welcomed in April of 2018! In my spare time you can find me near the ocean with my family, camera always in hand.
I would 100% consider myself a "right brained" personality. I thrive on crafting and creating and I think that is what draws me to photography so much. It's capturing moments already being made. Forming in my mind's eye before actually focusing a lens on it. It's a true love language to me and a great escape from my regular 9-5 M-F.
I first started getting into photography when my daughter was born in 2014. While it was always easy to reach for the trusty iPhone, I found that when it came time to print photos it just wasn't making the cut. So I put down my phone and relegated myself to learning about my camera. The more I came to understand my camera the more I loved it.
I began to have friends and family ask me to capture their memories. From holiday cards, to newborn sessions to engagements. I decided after much encouragement and support to launch Laura Parker Photography. As a full time working mama & blogger part of me thinks I am crazy, but the other part is crazy excited. I am at my best when I am creating something and photography has given me back so much of myself.
I can't say thank you enough to all the people who have cheered me on in my journey. My clients truly become my friends and I am so grateful for each and every one of you!
