Lasting Moments by Laurie Melissa Photography, lifestyle photography

Family Photography

Here we go

A doula client and fellow photographer friend took some sweet family photos for us yesterday evening.  I thought long and hard about what I wanted and this is what I came up with and I think it was captured perfectly.  Thankyou so much to Stephanie and Kevin of K&S Snapshots  for helping us with our exciting news

2012 Spring Family Portraits with the Murrah Family

I am sad that it took so many years to photograph this precious family.  I am however, so excited that in 2012 I did finally get to do a Lasting Moments Spring Family Portraits with the Murrah Family.  I could likely come up with many adjectives to describe this wonderful family but I think the pictures will speak for me.

Three little Cuties

I had the privilege of photographing Three little Cuties last week.  These three precious kids belong to a life long friend who I adore.  I was looking for inspiration and they gave me exactly what I needed.  I am so excited to post a few of my favorites.

Top 11 for 2011

<center><a href=””  target=”_self”><img border=”0″ alt=”Click It Up A Notch” src=”” /></a></center>

What a fast year it has been.  You are about to see my much agonized over top 11 photos of family for 2011.  I recently found a blog called click it up a notch.  She suggested posting our top 11 family photos for 2011.  At first I thought how easy that would be as certain images popped into my head.  But when i sat down and actually looked through my folders for 2011 it became an hour of laughing, crying and unbelief at this whole year of family fun and growth.  I hope you will enjoy this look back on some of my favorite family moments.  My Top 11 for 2011
