Hi! I'm Laura, the person behind the camera. My love of photography began in high school, when I took film photography and developing classes. I put my camera down during college, and bought my first DSLR when my husband and I found out that we were moving to Germany in 2012. I quickly rediscovered my passion for photography and started Laura Karoline Photography in late 2012.
My favorite thing about taking photos is capturing the emotion that can be evoked any time that picture is looked at. I love the tenderness of parents with their newborn, the adoration of a mother playing with her child, and the innocent joy of a baby squealing with laughter.
I grew up in Charlotte NC and have lived in Richmond VA, Kaiserslautern Germany, and now life brings me to Fort Drum, NY! I am a wife and mother to a toddler and two cats. In my spare time, I like meeting for coffee with friends, spending time outdoors, reading, and making handmade soap (Hazel Valley Handmade).
Are you ready to create and capture some beautiful memories? Read on to get an idea of what to expect before, during, and after your photo session!
Step 1 – Get in touch!
Take a look around at the portfolio and recent sessions! If you like what you see, go check out the session prices. If you are interested in booking a session, contact me using the form on my website to inquire about availability and ask any other initial questions you might have.
Step 2 – Reserve your session
I will send you an email containing more information about how to schedule and reserve your session.*
*Although newborn session dates aren’t scheduled until after baby is born (because due dates are variable), it is still important to reserve a spot as I only schedule a certain number of newborns per month by due date.
Step 3- Pre-session consultation
I want to chat with you! After your session is booked, we will schedule a time to talk over the phone to chat about location, clothing, style, etc. This is an important step, as it ensures that we are on the same page regarding your photos, and you will be much more comfortable in front of the camera after we get to know each other a little better.
Step 4- Time for your session!
Your session will take place at the decided-upon location. Sessions are laid-back. I will pose you and tell you exactly what to do, so you can relax and let your personality shine through!
Step 5- Receive your gorgeous new photos
Within two weeks of your session, I will e-mail you a link to an online gallery to download your images. The images are yours to print, share, and display in your home as you wish.
