It's about your life, your love, your joy, your family. Let me capture that for you.

I am laura mares.

A Pittsburgh based photographer for laid back clients wanting a creative and artistic photography experience, I love to capture moments as they come. I am a firm believer in love and believe that life was meant for living fully.

Are you looking for the right photographer to capture the special moments of your life for you and your family to treasure forever? As your photographer, I aim to create a fun, hassle-free experience that captures your natural beauty, unique personality and authentic connection.

"A thing that you will see in my pictures is that I was not afraid to fall in love with these people.' - Annie Leibovitz

A more intimate approach to family photography, lifestyle sessions take place in the comfort of your own home. 

Celebrate the excitement of a new family addition with timeless images that capture your baby’s tiny details.

There’s no better way to commemorate this major life milestone than with personality tailored images in unique locations around Pittsburgh. 

Showcase the person behind your business while boosting your influence with strong personal branding portraits. Let’s tell your brand’s story in a natural, approachable way.

Every family needs photos that capture the love between family members. When you update your family pictures you update your family’s story.

Life is an adventure. My photography journey began with my love of travel. Living a wanderer lifestyle, I may not have always known where I was headed, but I had faith that it would all work out in the end.
