Laura Parker Photography

When the year comes to an end (or rather a new beginning) it always gets me thinking about the future. We make resolutions, we create goals & ultimately try to better ourselves in the new year. While I have never taken my New Year's resolutions seriously this year I am going to change that.

A couple of years ago one of my many resolutions was to learn how to shoot in manual mode. Aside from making a baby (ha!) learning how to use my camera in Manual is the only other item I was able to cross off that list. I have to be honest and say it was truly out of necessity. I found that taking photos of my newborn baby on my iPhone was just not cutting it. Especially when it came to making prints. Lightroom, the editing software David had bought me for Christmas in 2013 was just gathering dust.

I began taking photos, mostly of P, and found that I was not only enjoying the technical aspects but I was truly enjoying the whole process. From digital image to editing to print. While I am still very much an amateur in my eyes people starting reaching out to me for their own photos. Me?!

So after doing quite a few families and recently being asked to take engagement photos (what an honor!) I decided it was time to leap. Say hello...
