"Laura is extremely professional and her attention to detail allows us to relax knowing she has everything under control. Even though we were taking family portraits in an 'outdoor' setting, Laura and her assistant prepped the location by removing debris and even animal droppings so that even our youngest children could run around safely. 
We have a very large family with our kids and grandkids. Laura took the time to photograph every combination of our group including family units, grandkids, Grandpa/Grandma, and involved us in many groups. We got to see all these later at our viewing appointment and we were very happy that we had more to review than expected. Once we chose our favorites, the finished product with framing is something that generates 'wow’s' from friends and family!"

“Very professional, many options for background choices both indoors and out. Photographer has a ‘feel’ for personalities and what’s right for them. [We enjoyed] 1. getting to know Laura Christine 2. Touring her facility and grounds 3. Daily we enjoy looking at the large portrait that marks 25 years married. She captured our joy & unity very well. We saw examples of Laura Christine’s work at a home show. We decided on the spot to make an appointment.”

“Excellent quality. Laura helped me feel at ease during the portraits.”
- Eliz, Laughing Tree Tea, Waterloo, IA

"Great experience - Laura was very accommodating to our preference to have [our] photo shoot at home. She made it a fun, relaxed experience. 
Laura knows how to keep the family moving into good photographic positions quickly and moves fast on pictures - a must with small children & pets!
We loved the way Laura had us out to her studio to view photos, highlighting crucial areas and commenting on certain poses. Her process of elimination was great in helping us make our choices!"

At Laura Christine Portraits, we believe that families matter.

In the blink of an eye, children grow up and leave, and parents grow old and pass away. I find so much joy in helping clients see and remember the beauty and love, and the joy and the laughter in their family. By creating exquisite portrait art pieces for the home, we create living art of your family. We create family heirlooms.

"Laura was kind, patient and really made our family feel at ease. The portraits she took exceeded my expectations! Lovely! Seeing our portraits on the large screen in her studio took my breath away. She is terrific. Thanks for making this a wonderful experience. Blessings to you!"
