Love Notes


Honestly, there aren’t words to express how wonderful Laura is to work with! She not only is an amazing photographer, but a sweet, patient baby whisperer. The photos she captured of our twins will be cherished forever 🙂 We are so grateful to have found her. – M.L.

Thank YOU Laura for capturing our little miracles most candid moments. A true professional and such a pleasure to work with !! We can’t wait to see our photos and we will be back. Your attention to detail and patience are what set her apart from the rest! – J.H.

Laura was so wonderful to work with! All of our photos were amazing and we had so many different poses to choose from. Her experience with newborns is very evident and my husband and I both agreed that she’s one of the most patient people we’ve ever met. I would recommend Laura anytime to anyone needed newborn photos for not only her amazing work, but also for being so wonderful to work with! – B.G.

“This is masterpiece work. We were extremely impressed with how Laura orchestrated the shoot — excellence at every level from set design, to how she handled the baby, to how comfortable the studio was. These shots are absolutely amazing!!” – M.R.

“I highly recommend Laura and Add to Heart Photography! Every little detail is of great importance to Laura in each picture, making her work flawless. Laura did an incredible job at our maternity shoot. She had beautiful places to shoot at, made us feel very comfortable, and show-cased the bump beautifully. We quickly named her the “baby whisperer” at our newborn photo session. I have never seen anyone more graceful with, a newborn baby. She captured a moment in time perfectly. Laura was flexible with the photo shoot date, just what you need when planning around a newborn :). And she is in no rush at the photo shoots, allowing for time to nurse/feed baby when needed. Please look no further if you are researching photographers in our area. We can’t wait for our future photo sessions with Laura!” – L.H.

“Laura is an amazing photographer. She did my family’s maternity and newborn photos. The maternity photos were amazing. I had such a hard time choosing favorites because they were all so amazing. Before the session, she made sure to talk to us about what we were looking for and what type of feel we wanted for the session. During the session, she did everything to achieve the natural type photos we were looking for. We laughed, we genuinely smiled and had a great time. It was aperfect experience. The newborn photo session was equally, if not more, amazing. Laura had so much patience in working with our little one and just took such wonderful photos that again, we had trouble choosing favorites. Every single thing about working with Laura has been enjoyable. She’s thoughtful, open, gentle, calm, and just an amazing person to work with and know. I am so glad that I found her for our family photos, and I can’t wait to hire her again for our next batch of family photos. I very highly recommend her to anyone and everyone!” – K.W.

“Laura was suburb, her pictures are flawless, and she became a friend, not just my photographer. I was big and pregnant and less than graceful. But the pictures came out magical. I will cherish those pictures forever. As long as we live in Kitsap County, no one is taking my family pictures but Laura!” – A.C.

“Laura is amazing! My maternity was such a great experience! Laura made me feel very comfortable and confident, which is hard when your pregnant. Laura was open to my ideas and i was open to hers. My pictures turned out incredible! The newborn pictures are gorgeous and i am so thankful to have them as memories. Laura was very gentle with our son and calm. She has so much patience!!! Our family pictures were on the waterfront and they were so much fun! Once again our pictures turned out great and we had a lot of fun doing them! I would highly recommend Add to Heart to anyone!” – A.G.

“Laura’s connection to the gentle nature of newborns and her deep respect for their comfort and care is a welcome relief to a mother. I was sincerely impressed and grateful for her keen, talented eye and sweet demeanor. To discover a photographer with a genuine passion for photography and its artistry is a gift. I highly recommend her services to anyone with a true yearning for a perfect capture of a special time in their life. I will be forever grateful for these beautiful portraits of my first-born son.” – A.H.

“Truly amazing memories captured in a photograph. She personalizes your sessions every step of the way. Not to mention every comfort for the little ones to feel at ease with their first ever photo shoot. However I did say that my little guy hates being naked and I didn’t think he would pose for the great photos that I had seen posted on her website. However, Laura was able to capture my man squeeze at his best because he was comfortable. She matches up colors and themes of your likes or nursery styles and also has the most darling hats for the little ones to wear as well. I was always jealous of all the cute little hair bows and flowers for little girls, but never have I seen these darling stocking hats for boys. Honestly I wish I could have bought every shot and the hats too! Professional, personal and over flowing with talent, Laura thank you for all of our memories captured in time.” – T.K.

“Laura is a wonderful photographer. She took fantastic “newborn” style photos of our son when he was 3 months old. She not only has a great artistic eye, but she also had the enduring patience necessary to get my baby to fall asleep in order to get those photos! She is very prepared (heater, hand sanitizer, different wraps and hats, music, etc) and my family and friends are all amazed by the photographs. Laura has captured that special moment in time for us. I highly recommend her!” – L.L.

“After seeing the photos Laura took of my nephew and hearing how comfortable she made his parents, I couldn’t resist setting up newborn pictures for my baby. Comfortable is an understatement for the way that my husband and I both felt during our newborn session. Laura’s demeanor with babies is one to be envied. I thought my baby was “un-swaddle-able” until I watched Laura’s finess (since watching her, I’ve been able to swaddle my baby!! I am thankful for Laura during long nights!). The set up that she brought to our home also put me at ease; heaters, heating mats, and very comfortable blankets for the baby to lay on. Laura was open to our ideas and yet had great ideas of her own as well. The pictures turned out remarkably, and I have gotten so many compliments on them from friends and family. I will definitely be using Laura for future photo needs, as she is prompt, respectful and most of all captures beautiful moments.” – A.G.

“We could not be more pleased with our experience with Laura and the photos we now have to document this precious time in our lives. Laura was incredibly flexible and accommodating to our schedule, which changed a few times. We were new to the area and after a few discussions as to what we were looking for she had the perfect locations in mind. Our Maternity session was incredibly fun and special. Laura was a blast to be around and I have never felt more beautiful as I did during our session (no mean feat when 35 weeks pregnant). Laura perfectly captured the sweet and playful nature of our marriage. The Newborn session was just as fun. Laura is perfect with little ones and we were all (new baby included) instantly at home and comfortable. She captured our newborn daughter perfectly, and the day was peaceful and memorable. The most incredible part of this experience was the art that we now have. Choosing from the photos for prints was difficult; all of them were wonderful (this is so rare)! The prints were gorgeous, it was great to have a disc of the images we chose, and I cannot say enough about how beautiful the personalized keepsake box is. I know that it is something our daughter will cherish when she is older. We are so thankful to have shared this special time in our lives with Laura, and highly recommend her. If you are looking for a fun and memorable experience with beautiful art to show for it, you will not regret choosing Add to Heart Photography!” – C.K.

“I can’t say enough wonderful things about the photographs that Laura took for my maternity and newborn photo sessions. Her professionalism, creativity and passion for photography shine through with her work. She is very responsive to emails, phone calls and inquiries. She worked to try to incorporate as many personal elements into our sessions as possible – including trying to get a good day for our dog to be in the shots and a custom newborn photo prop. She has amazing skills for capturing these moments that we wanted to remember. She made my husband and I feel at ease during our session and she is wonderfully talented working with newborns. We would highly recommend Laura to anyone who would like to get photos taken of those special moments and can’t wait for another opportunity to work with her again.” – J.M.

“Laura’s work is absolutely incredible! She did my wedding and she truly caught every memory. The pictures she took tells the story of our wedding without a word. The memories she captured will forever let us relive the happiest day of our lives. She didn’t only take incredible pictures but she was very helpful and professional before during and after every step of what could have otherwise been very stressful. We highly recommend her and if there was a way to giver her ten stars we would.” – K.M.

“Laura did a excellent job and i will definitely use you in the future:) The pictures you took of her just make her look so precious and I look at them all the time. Your studio was so cozy and was your very friendly which also makes things easier. I appreciate the great job you did.” – S.C.

“Laura is great. Being 36 weeks pregnant with a toddler in tow for pics didnt sound like much fun. Laura was awesome at making sure we were relaxed, comfy and cute.The hard part was picking out what photos to print.  We highly recommend her.” – V.M.

“Laura was recommended by a couple different people, so we decided to give her a try for my daughter’s senior pictures. We got numerous comments from friends that the pictures looked like those in a modeling portfolio. We are so happy with the results, we already know who will do our son’s seniors pictures in two years and we also plan to have her do family pictures in the future, too. Amazing talent, very easy to work with, and definitely great value for high quality. Having Laura do these pictures was a great decision. We highly recommend her for any big event, and even the every day ones.”  – M.P.

“She did a truly fantastic job with our photos. She was highly professional, yet fun and personable too. Laura was great at making creative suggestions and being in-tune with our personality and preferences. And our pictures turned out beautifully! As an amateur photographer myself, I consider myself really picky when it comes to photos. But Laura blew us away. I would recommend her to anyone.” – M.R.

“I was looking for a photographer to use for my maternity photos and was having no luck finding one whose style I really liked. I searched online, through facebook, and other photographers friends have used. One day I was in a local coffee shop and saw these canvas photos of maternity and newborn shots from Add to Heart Photography, and they were exactly what I was looking for and knew I wanted to book the photo sessions, I was so impressed with the work and images. I called, spoke to Laura and she was able to book my maternity session just a few days later and I also booked a newborn session as well, as a package. I can’t tell you how nice it was to work with Laura, she answered all my questions and the day of the session I felt so comfortable. Laura and I had talked about shots and ideas that I had for the maternity session and she was able to incorporate them all. My little girl was born almost 2 weeks early, so I called Laura, and she was able to do the newborn session the next day when my baby was 4 days old. These pictures were AMAZING!! There are so many great images, I am having a hard time choosing which ones to print. Laura took her time and was so patient working with a newborn. I had to stop and feed my baby a few times throughout the session, and Laura had all the time for me and never made me feel rushed. ” – G.M.
