I consider the sun, my partner in crime for your session. Golden hour sessions are my JAM.
If you envision your family outfitted in a dreamy, boho style, but have no idea where to begin - have no fear. You can trust in my styling expertise to help you build a wardrobe that brings your vision to life.
I take the pressure completely off of you so you can focus on solely connecting with your babies during your session.
I married my high school sweetheart back in 2002. Our two boys, Barrett and Abe, grew our family and I yearned to prioritize my time spent with them.
I bought myself a camera and the story of Elephant Juice Photography, A Kansas Family and Maternity Photographer, began. I dreamed of photographing families in a way that I wanted to see my own family through a lens. Photos that are sweet, connected, rooted in emotion and embody a genuine reflection of your family.
When it came to photography, I taught myself everything I know. Now I want to be a mentor to champion the growing generation of up and coming photographers. Artists who, like me, value connection, emotion and stories. Creatives who are chasing the deeper meaning of life and family.
“Take time to make your soul happy.”
The experience was seamless. Laura made us feel completely comfortable. She was able to capture the love and excitement we had for our little girl's arrival. The photos turned out absolutely stunning and we will cherish them forever.
She is a pleasure to work with from start to finish. Her client wardrobe is such a unique feature and was incredibly helpful and beautiful for my family pictures. Laura has the ability to find beauty in the simple moments during the shoot: it might be a glance between parents, boys jumping off of rocks or the family just walking together. The images she has taken of my family are pure magic and I could not recommend her enough!”
I’ve admired Laura’s work for years. The first time we met was at a workshop in Boulder, CO. It was raining, cold and gloomy but Laura, along with the other photographers there, made our family feel so comfortable that the rainy weather didn’t bother us at all and the pictures were all pure magic.
She is an artist who creates a beautiful canvas with every photo she takes. Her vision, the beautiful golden light and the candid moments she captures always take my breath away. I am truly in awe of her work and her passion. I cannot recommend Laura enough.
