Are you past the newborn stage and watching your sweet little bundle grow into a happy, bouncing, mobile toddler? This time of life is wild, fun, and exhausting and moves at a mile a minute, just like your baby! I want to help you capture that personality, spark and adorableness with professional baby photos.
From memorable first-year milestones to a fun themed one-year cake smash, there are so many fun ways to celebrate your baby’s first year. Each of my sessions is unique to you and your little one. I aim to capture their ever-changing personality, showcasing their amazing and quirky ways.
Here’s a look at some galleries of previous sessions
Lucy's Cake Smash
Jack's Cake Smash
George's Cake Smash
George's Cake Smash
George's mom liked the idea of using greenery in his session. We came up with this brick wall and cluster of plants for sort of an urban loft feel, and I love how it came out.
Jack's Cake Smash
Jack's nursery has a Peter Rabbit theme. I found the cutest little wheelbarrow and picket fence, then used fresh vegetables to fill out the scene!
Lucy's Cake Smash
Lucy's mom wanted a simple cake smash with flowers. I think these hoops did the trick! Although Lucy wasn't much of a fan of the sticky frosting, we still got a lot of cute photos!
Chezney's Sitter session
Chezney is just full of personality. I absolutely loved her session and her bright, happy demeanor. The photo of her with the purple flower bonnet is one of my all time faves.
David's sitter session
David is the cutest! We used that sailboat in his newborn session too. It's fun to choose a prop that can be used at different sessions to compare how baby changes in size.
aria's sitter session
Look at those curls! I got to photograph Aria for newborn, sitter and cake smash sessions, and she just got cuter and cuter every time I saw her.
Somewhere in the middle of the first year, most babies reach the sitting milestone. I am here to celebrate it! These are some of my favorite sessions because it’s generally a really happy time for babies. I provide the cute outfits and sets, then put baby center stage and get silly to bring out the big smiles. My rendition of Baby Shark gets them every time.
Cake Smash Sessions
Hooray, hooray! I love to make a big fuss over baby’s first birthday! It’s a three part session – smile, smash and splash. I start with classic portraits in a cute outfit, then it’s time for a cake smash. I provide a decorated set plus a bakery cake, and get fantastic photos while your little one goes to town on it. When it’s time for cleanup, I bring out the cutest little clawfoot tub and it’s splash time! If you don’t want baby to have cake, just let me know and I’ll come up with another fun way to celebrate!
We have decided to name Laura the Modern Fairy Godmother of Newborns. She waves her magic camera, employs an unbelievable array of props and then blows pixie dust and stars into her photos. We are thrilled. Each time we look at Laura’s photos we fall in love with the baby all over again. It is apparent that Laura comes with years of experience. Her creativity is unsurpassed. She matches parents’ preferences with her seemingly bottomless cupboard of artistic items. In our session, which lasted for hours, we marveled at her newborn patience, care and skill. She is a master of artful swaddling. Yes, it is a thing! And, had I not seen it for myself, I wouldn’t have believed that she could coax a smile out of a sleeping infant. She makes even the jowly sleepy pouts look adorable. Laura is able to capture newborn nuances that we didn’t know existed until we received the photos. - Jeannie

Laura King is fantastic. What I love about her is the high quality of the photos. The different options for printing the pictures are outstanding quality as well. She is personable and really has become apart of my children’s life. I have used her for the past 4 years and will continue. She makes each picture session individualized, so you know you are getting something unique. The sessions are fun as well. Lastly, you instantly feel welcomed. I highly suggest her for any child’s session. - Jackie
I absolutely love the pictures that Laura takes of my grandchildren. Her gorgeous backdrops, delightful props, variety of poses and her ability to capture each child’s personality make it so difficult to choose from all of photographs she produces. I’ve been there several times to watch her photograph the kids and each time she manages to “catch”’ their precious expressions as she laughs and plays with them while they don’t even realize they’re being photographed. Laura has truly given us some memories to cherish. - Debbie
I really do not have words to express how magnificent was this experience. Laura is so sweet, helpful, nice, and at the same time so professional. She really loves children and babies. I really loved this experience, she made me feel at home all the time and added extra flavor to my already wonderful moment. To add to all of this, the final work is just incredible.
Laura is an absolutely phenomenal photographer!!! She has an incredible eye for detail, and her creativity continuously wows me. She truly is a “baby whisperer” and is so tender and kind with children. She makes every person she meets feel comfortable in front of the camera and produces the most beautiful images with intricately thought out color schemes and prop usage. Her talent shows in all that she does, and we feel so blessed to have found her. We have used her for maternity photos, family photos, and newborn/milestone photos for all of our children and will continue to use her for future children and family memories.

The pictures came out STUNNING & i couldn’t be more in love with them. This was my daughter and also my first photoshoot and Laura made me feel super comfortable & was great with my daughter.
After an initial consultation, we brought our little girl in for her newborn photo session at 9 days old. Laura worked wonders with her, and was extremely patient and willing to take breaks. She created lifetime memories which we will have forever. We were extremely happy with our final product and would absolutely recommend Laura to anyone in the Houston area.
Laura is a truly gifted photographer! She welcomes you into her home as if you were family. If you are debating over the price, trust me – the quality is worth every penny.
Laura is very sweet and has a great studio set up in her home. Lots of props, you can tell she’s very invested in her craft. I’ve went to her for my maternity,newborn,six months and looking forward to my sons one year cake smash photoshoot. She has always exceeded my expectations!!! 🙂
