For thirty years from this feeling — to feel it all over again, together

  • Why Do You Photograph Families?
    No. 01

    Because I wish there were more pictures of all of us together when we were little. And that Mom was in more of them with us + not always behind the camera! I want these to be the photos you + your kids pull out in 30 years and feel instantly transported back to that moment, the way everything felt, and feel it all over again. These images are worth so much more to future you, try to remember that!

    My style of shooting is very much interactive – it’s about your families’ relationships + connections, and much less about everyone just looking and smiling at my camera. My goal is to make everyone feel beautiful, comfortable, confident, and really, naturally happy!


  • What Kind of Family Sessions Do you Photograph?
    No. 03

    Great question! I am there for any and all family moments – from maternity – fresh 48 newborn sessions, into the yearly milestones and finally all of those big family photos! I absolutely adore growing up with my elle rose kiddos and getting to see them each year and catch up with them!

  • Where do you like to shoot?
    No. 04

    I love coming into your home and integrating your full story into your images. Have a favorite park, hike, beach, city view that you guys have family days out to? Lets spend some time there!

  • I need family pictures next week, sound good?
    No. 05

    Sessions tend to book anywhere from a few weeks to a few months out depending on the time of year. So it is always best to send a hello email even if you think it is too far out – I promise it is not! Lets get you on the calendar before you miss out on the elle rose experience : )

  • We love Laurie from elle rose
    Photo!!! She has been taking our family pictures since our daughter was born and never disappoints. Laurie is so accommodating-coming to our house for a newborn shoot to meeting us anywhere in the city to make sure we have the perfect locations. She manages to get peaceful looks from a baby's that's been crying all day, smiles and laughter from a toddler who won't sit still, and beautiful shots of parents who are exhausted but somehow look relaxed, happy and fresh!

  • Laurie is just the best! She is professional, creative, and extremely thoughtful. We've worked with Laurie for our engagement and wedding photos, and now for maternity, newborn, and one year old photos of our daughter. All of our photographs are amazing-My Dad says our wedding album "gives him chills" I cannot recommend Elle Rose photo enough, and I cannot thank Laurie for all these captured moments enough!

  • I've never been very comfortable in front of a camera, but Laurie brings such a relaxed environment it makes posing for the camera come natural for not only myself, but my whole family. It really shows through in the pictures! We've had Laurie shoot our photos over the past 8 years, and it has provided us wonderful memories to look back on and see how our family has grown. We get numerous compliments each year on our Christmas card picture and on the portraits in our home, and I credit it all to Laurie and her natural eye for photography and beautiful composition. I cannot recommend Laurie enough! Thank you for all you've done over the years! Mary + Joe + Abby + Ben
  • Laurie has been taking photos of my family since my first child was just a few days old. That was over six years ago. Laurie is not just a photographer to us. She captures these natural and real moments that you cherish more since that was how life was at that time. She is a living memory book and a kind and patient (!) friend. My kids love her and they act so natural and playful with her that we have the best photos of our kids smiling their real smiles and laughing their real laughs and I found those to be incredibly special. Thanks Laurie for the best memories and all the memories to come! Meghan + Emery + Kellen + Quinn + Nora
