Hello, friends! 

GET TO KNOW your photographer

I'm Laura and I'm so glad you're here! Throw your hair up in a bun, grab a cup of coffee (or sweet tea!), get comfy, and hang out with me! 

I am a Motherhood and Newborn Photographer and Blogger based out of Charleston, SC. When I’m not photographing Mama’s and her little one(s), precious new babies, and families, you can most likely find me hanging out with my handsome husband, attempting to cuddle my fearless one year old while also wrangling in my two wild pups - all while trying to control my addiction to sweet tea. And although the military may have us move around the country from time to time, I am originally form North Carolina, so that addiction is probably rooted too deep to cure!

I’ve worked with a lot of photographers here in Charleston and Laura is by far my favorite. Her work is absolutely perfect, and she goes above and beyond for her clients. I had the pleasure of doing a maternity photoshoot with Laura and during our time together, she captured the most memorable moments with my daughter and I. Next month we will be welcoming our son into this world and I can’t wait to have Laura capture even more precious moments with my family. Hands down one of the most professional and caring individuals I have ever met. Thank you Laura for everything!

Laura Ryan was a great photographer in Charleston to work with. She made my family feel comfortable and really took her time to make sure the quality of the pictures would be great. I appreciate her contact over the phone and in person before the photo shoot to ensure we felt like she was the best photographer for us. She also was a huge help with deciding our outfits and what would work well together. 
My little newborn loved her as well! She was excellent with him and knew how to pose him and swaddle him perfectly. We will use her for our next newborn for sure!

We had our maternity/family photos taken by Laura, and we were very happy with the entire experience. We live on James Island, so I was very happy when she found a beautiful location with a wonderful Charleston backdrop not too far away from our home. From wardrobe planning to capturing the very rare moments when our two year old would cooperate and actually smile at the camera, Laura was very professional and a joy to work with! She was also able to capture everything we wanted in a very timely manner, which was perfect for our busy toddler. We will definitely use her for any future family photography needs!

Laura is one of the best photographers I’ve worked with in Charleston, SC. Our family portrait beach session was an absolute dream - she made shooting with two toddlers seem like a walk in the park! Our pictures turned out beautiful and she was quick with editing and turn around time. Can’t recommend her enough!!!!

Laura was extremely personable and made us feel comfortable immediately for our maternity photos. She chose the most beautiful location in Daniel Island, near Charleston, and knew exactly where to take the best photos for the time of day. She guided us through the whole experience and was such a pleasure to work with!

 I’m based out of Charleston, South Carolina, but travel all over! 

faq

When should I book my  session? 

 As soon as you can! Most of my maternity and newborn clients book during their second trimester. All other sessions, I usually schedule 4-6 weeks out. 

faq

How far along should I be for my maternity photos?

 I recommend 30-34 weeks for maternity photos. You don’t want to be too far along, but definitely far along enough to show off your bump. 

faq

How old does my baby need to be for newborn lifestyle photos? 

For newborns, I recommend within the first two weeks before your little one changes too much, but really anytime in the first month!  

faq

How long will my session take?

Maternity, motherhood, and family sessions are usually an hour. Newborn sessions usually take about two or two and a half hours. 

faq

Will I receive the digital images?

YES! All of 4 of our collections include 35 high resolution images. 

faq

How long will it take to receive my images?

 I typically share a sneak peek within a few days of your session and your full gallery within 2 weeks. 

faq

Do you offer other products? 

 Yes! 3 of our collections include our favorite products! If you wish to purchase additional prints and products, you will be able to do that directly from your online gallery. 

faq

Will you share my images online? 

That’s completely up to you! You will receive a model release with your contract.  Whether you want to share your images with the world or keep them private, I respect your decision. 

faq

What should I wear for my session? 

I recommend soft, neutral colors to go along with my photography style. Wardrobe styling is included with each of my sessions. Don't stress it! 

faq

What is my baby or toddler isn’t having it? 

Don’t stress! It’s totally normal. I’ll send you some tips prior to your session to help prepare your little one.
