Laura Jean | About

Hi there and thank you for visiting.

My name is Laura and I am a natural light, portrait and landscape photographer based in Redding CA.

A little about me:
Photography is my passion, one of my creative outlets in life and so sentimental and monumental to me. When I was 20 years old I lost my best friend... my Mom... 45 years old with no signs of sickness - just went to sleep and didn't wake up. The photographs I have of her and us are all that I have to show my children of her.  

I’m a busy mom with 3 amazing, loving children, a dog named Zoey and a crew of wonderful friends by my side that I would be lost without...
During the day I sit at a desk, at a computer but in the evenings and on weekends we like to chase the sun, capture memorable moments and create lifetime memories (for ourselves and others).
In due time I hope to be able to be a full time photographer but for now... I'm content.

Now, a little about my work:
I try to stay away from the typical and am always on the hunt for new ideas, techniques, props, and interesting people, places and things! 

Senior portraits and woman are my favorite subjects to photograph although I'm diversified and enjoy capturing Families, Maternity, Newborns, Children and their Milestones, Pre-teens, Couples, Engagements, Weddings, Boudoir, Headshots, Events, Sports, Real Estate interior\exterior, and all that is memorable or beautiful.  

My sessions are natural, fun, relaxed and real - We'll probably LAUGH... A LOT! I’m pretty silly - life is short. If you take some time to look over my photography you'll see I tend to have a somewhat photo-journalistic style. I feel these images are so much stronger than posed photos.  There is something special about seeing those final images that will mean so much more when the moment is real. When I'm composing a shot I'm constantly weighing in my mind what will be important to my clients and their future generations. I'll work closely with you to capture a variety of natural poses and perfectly unposed, candid moments. 

Weddings... When I'm photographing weddings I strive to create timeless images... Images that not only speak about what took place but also who my couples are... Their essence. We make it a goal to capture and tell the story of the entire wedding day.  The details, the emotions, the special moments and the large open shots of the setting.
