My name is Laura, and I am a mama to 2 gorgeous kids, and wife to my husband Dave. I spend my days playing make-believe with my daughter (or reading her copious amounts of books), telling my son to get down from whatever he's climbed upon, and, in every other moment I get, picking up my camera to document the lives of others.

I am a glass-half-full kind of girl, always up for an adventure, and will never turn down an opportunity to eat brekkie out. I am passionate about motherhood, about the small moments in life, simple living, and finding your happiness and joy in the everyday.

I love connection and community, am incredibly sentimental, and above all, I love the act of storytelling.

Whether it’s a good book, a hand written note, a little Instagram caption, or through the medium of photography, I love the way words and images can transport and move us.

Getting to tell other people’s stories; picking up my camera and being invited into someone’s life — even for just an hour — brings me so much joy. I have so enjoyed not only taking photos of families, but hearing their stories, becoming their friend, and documenting and helping capture the season of life they’re in. It is such a privilege. Thank you to all the families that have trusted me with coming into your space and allowing me tell your story just a little.

Head over to my Birth, Newborn or Family pages to see my work, or send me an email to book in your session. I look forward to hearing from you!

Jo, Birth Photography

The Loft Photography did such an amazing job of creating memories for us of the birth of baby Oliver... Laura, you caught on camera all of the emotions... the fear, the excitement, anxiety, the love and the moment we met our baby, felt him on my chest and heard him cry for the first time! I can’t thank you enough!


Angela, Newborn Session

Laura is so kind, talented, and easy to work with. She came into our home and did a newborn shoot with us. She made us feel so comfortable and focused on getting beautiful images in the mix of real life. But we also got some pictures a bit more posed, as she was super flexible with the different range of pictures we were hoping for. The final product was STUNNING! Couldn’t have been happier. She also was one of the most reasonably priced I could find in all of Sydney. Can’t recommend enough. Will definitely be asking her to snap more family pics in the future. Thanks, Laura!

Tash, Birth Photography

All my close friends have had their babies and all mentioned the amazing experience at times being a bit of a blur. When I saw Laura's photography style and saw her in action as a mum, I knew she would be able to perfectly capture my first borns birth - something I was convinced I wanted to keep in memory forever.

Laura was incredibly professional and genuine during the birth. In numerous moments Laura was not only a highly skilled photographer but also great support, friend, and encourager.

It honestly was so comforting to know that I had documented the most amazing experience of my life. When we received the photos promptly from Laura we were blown away by the perfect simplicity captured. I'll forever be grateful to Laura for what she has provided us, and I'd high recommend her for birth photography.

Emily, Lifestyle Newborn Session

Let’s be honest, everyone loves staring at pictures of their own baby! Especially when they are so new and fresh! The more time I spend looking at the photos Laura took, the more I fall in love with them. I’m so glad we were able to find someone to capture the small moments of our new everyday so beautifully.

We loved having Laura in our home to capture photos of our little growing family. I know in the years to come we’ll look back on these photos and treasure the precious moments with our new baby.

At times we forgot Laura was even there to take photos as we chatted and nothing was made feel forced or unnatural. She captured us in the moments between conversations and loving stares and in the middle of our newborn bubble, which is such a special time you never want to forget. Thank you Laura for not only capturing photos but for creating memories we can enjoy but also ones our little boy can look back on as he grows and these pictures tell the start of his story.

Kate, Lifestyle Newborn Session

Sitting at the hairdressers with tears streaming down! Thinking we wouldn’t be able to have children, I’m obsessed with our little family. You have captured us so well and I love how relaxed and at ease we felt the whole time. I can’t wait to get you to do her first birthday party and other special moments we want captured. Honestly can not thank you enough... I’m obsessed!!

Laura, Lifestyle Family Session

I highly recommend Laura from the Loft Photography. She was fantastic. Although we were initially nervous about being in front of the camera we were quickly comforted by her relaxed, conversational and friendly nature. She made the whole experience very enjoyable and we love the photos she took! A highlight was how well she interacted with our toddler and baby and managed to get beautiful photos of them. I know that I will treasure the photos forever and so appreciate that I have a record of this time of our family life. I’ll have to book in again ASAP! 

Ingrid, Newborn Session

We had a wonderful shoot with Laura. She made everything feel natural and relaxed and we just got our photos and they are awesome, so many great shots and feels very us, going to be hard to choose which ones to display....thanks again Laura

Lauren, Family Session

I'm normally very shy in front of a camera but Laura made us feel so so comfortable and chatted to us like normal as we spent time together as a family. my kids loved playing outside and she captured some really special, everyday moments which we'll treasure forever. Definitely recommend her!

Toni, Family Session

As time seems to be flying by so fast I wanted a way to capture all the adventures and fun we are having as family whilst Cara is still a little crumpet. On recommendation by members of Mum's Grapevine we worked with the lovely and very talented Laura from The Loft Photography. I loved how she captured Cara’s soulful eyes and how we interact together as a family. By family that means including our forever princess Ella Grace. The photos I treasure most is that of Cara and her Ate Ella...our beautiful girls in one picture. It was such a fun and easy going shoot all credit to Laura! Thank you Laura for capturing these moments!
