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 and secondly to a little lady born in 2014 (and another one on the way come April 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!
