Laura Cole is a professional photographer based in Orange, New South Wales
Hi - I'm Laura. I'm a wife and mother to two beautiful babes living in Orange in Central West NSW with our cat and two crazy dogs.
A little about me...
I am a terrible gardener. I kill succulents and all other "love neglect" plants. My dogs are also the perfect assistants in this process, so all of my outside plants live behind baby gates (that I never even had to use for my kids!) and chicken wire fencing. That being said, I continue to try and hope that one day I will master it. If you come to my studio, please don't judge my dying plants on your way in!
I have always loved taking photos of my family. I truly believe thatphotographs are one of the most precious and valuable things we can have in our life, and people often don't realise their value until so long after the photo was taken.
Growing up, if my friends had newborn and professional baby photos on display at their home, I was always a tiny bit jealous. I wish that my parents had had them done for me, but those were different times, where photographs weren't as accessible or within most peoples budget.
Lucky for us, times have changed, and today we are blessed with being able to capture so many firsts and memories from the palm of our hand; frozen in time to reflect back on forever. I made sure to get professional photos done of my children when they were born, and I smile every time I look at them framed around the house. My babies are still young, and I have already forgotten how tiny they once were.
When those photos were taken, I was knee deep in that newborn high of sleep deprivation, nappy changes, midnight feeds and love. I couldn't remember what day it was, how many times I was up the night before or how many days in a row Id used dry shampoo. But my photographer captured these amazing photos to remind me of all the tiny details I was sure to forget once I got through the sleep deprived haze. And how happy they make me still to this day is why I became a newborn photographer.
I want to be responsible for you wondering how it was ever possible for your now toddler to have ever been that small. For you to check on them as theyve gone to sleep and think that they still look exactly the same as they did as a peaceful newborn. For you to look at your teenager in disbelief that they once fit on your forearm. I want to be responsible for you one day laughing at how it now seems like a lifetime ago. And a lifetime it may be, but you will always have these precious photos to remind you of how truly special that fleeting moment in time was.
