Hi there! Welcome to my little site. I’m Laura.


You might be wondering how you say my last name too - I'll help you out, “Shack-Mut” Easier than it looks, really.


I’m here because 12 years ago I fell in love with photography. I fell in love with freezing time and capturing moments with my own children. Over time, I started doing that for others and some years later, I opened this business. I’ve worked with hundreds of families and been fortunate to have some of the most wonderful clients. I’ve seen babies born and grow year after year, I’ve seen wedding vows and milestones and connections between loved ones over and over.


I adore my clients and we have fun when we shoot. I'm a low-stress type of person and I like to make sure everyone feels comfortable while we're together. I'll work with your shy little ones and play tag with the energetic ones. We will hug and cuddle and run and laugh. I want to capture the kind of happiness that comes from your genuine connections, the beauty that shines from inside, and the kind of love that will make you smile every time you look at your images. Life moves so fast, let's take some time to appreciate what we have right now.


And more about me? Well, I love coffee. My favorite colors are blue and purple and my favorite shape is a star. I’m a wife of 13 years and mom to three precious girls. I’m semi obsessed with our Boykin Spaniel Hattie. I work as a school psychologist by day and I never ever turn down Mexican food. If there’s anything else you’d like to know – just ask!


I can’t wait to meet you.
