Good morning Laura!!!! Your pictures truly speak a 1000 words. -Megan M.




Thank you so much. You do such beautiful work. I will be recommending you to everyone I know. -Kate T.



Ecstatic to have had the opportunity for Laura to photograph our little guy! Such amazing talent! I can't wait to see the other images she captured during our shoot! Each photo is unique in its own way, and the passion and patience Laura has is exemplary! -Christine S.



Laura, you are an extremely talented photographer. You have quietly captured the emotion and essence of the special moments in our lives over the years. I will highly recommend you for any number of specialty videography or photography occasions! -Dani K.




Thank you Laura! Everyone LOVES the pictures, especially because they truly capture our children's personalities! We are going to have a tough time narrowing down which pictures we are going to get. We are going to let each set of grandparents pick one picture and we will choose the rest. And the video is beautiful!! Thank you again! -Vanessa M.



I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your work. The way you capture every special moment is so moving and captivating. Beautiful clarity and heart felt memories captured in every image which tell a story within, and amazing attention to detail. I would definitely recommend your work to anyone & everyone! -Kristie T.




Thank you, Laura! We love the pictures and I can't wait to see the prints. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience with my two girls. You are just wonderful with babies! I love getting my girls' pictures and we would love to use you again in the future. -Kristina G.


Laura, thank you so much for taking my son's pictures and getting back to me so quickly.  They are beautiful, and I really do have to say that I was looking at these photos saying to myself "was I at the session?" because I didn't catch a lot of these poses in real life.  It means a lot to me that you can capture his personality very well - truly as he is. I also like the app. Made life easier for me. Thanks again for the fabulous work! -Clara F.



My husband and I were trying to decide whether to have our professional baby photos taken through a session with a big photo company or a private photographer. Remembering my own exhausted-looking childhood photos from the times when the store photographer was running hours behind schedule, we chose to go with a private professional. Laura's photographs stood out to us because of their beauty and the depth of personality she was able to convey. What an excellent choice! The session was cozy and relaxed, and Laura was both accommodating of our preferences and full of creative shot ideas. Despite all the new faces and stimulation baby James was experiencing, she and her assistant coaxed some beautiful smiles out of him. I was nervous about the final shots, because I couldn't tell during the session whether I was able to smile naturally while feeling preoccupied with what the baby was doing, but with Laura's positive and gentle coaching, our whole family looked wonderful. I highly recommend Laura Mares Photography for gorgeous, individualistic family photos to cherish forever. -Emily G.



We had a great experience, and if you are looking for newborn or family pictures, I can't recommend Laura Mares Photography enough. She was so patient with our baby, friendly, and welcoming. -Megan P.




Laura spent four hours yesterday creating beautiful poses and scenes for our baby! I HIGHLY recommend her! Thanks!! -Danielle S.



I love your photography! The pictures you took of my husband and I are the best ones we ever had. We were speechless! We're still deciding which ones to get - we love them all. We will definitely recommend you to all our friends and family. We enjoy looking through your website from the weddings to the babies, families, seniors, etc. Thanks! -Ann B.
