  • Throw back to summer☀️ Guys, I can’t believe that 2018 is almost over!! It really was just an amazing year (despite spending the first half pregnant and sick in bed🤣), and I’m not ready for it to end! BUT I am excited to spend January working on some personal projects, ordering new product samples, and planning out 2019. If you’re wanting a 2019 session with me don’t wait to book, my prices are going up for 2019 but you can book at my 2018 prices until the end of next week!🖤
  • It’s engagement season!!💍 I’m sharing another photo of this cute couple with a little PSA to NOT wait to contact your favorite photographer! We tend to book up pretty fast this time of year. I’m getting bookings for 2020 already! If you’re interested in having me document your wedding, send me a message and let’s set up a time to meet up and chat!
  • Hey there! Just wanted to share this picture of my own family and say THANK YOU so much to all of the amazing couples, families, and businesses I had the privilege to work with this year. It’s been a wonderful and busy year for both S&L Photography and my little family. I didn’t offer holiday minis or any December sessions this year so I could take some time to work on all the behind the scenes stuff that goes with running a business, and to make sure I got to enjoy this season with my favorite people.❤️ I’ll still be posting and I am currently booking for 2019 and 2020, but wanted to keep you all in the loop since I may not be as quick to answer emails and messages as I usually am! I hope you all are able to take some time to slow down and spend time with those you love this holiday season!
  • When someone asks if they can bring their fur baby to a session the answer is ALWAYS yes!!
  • You can find me at the beach anytime of the year! I shared this one in my stories the other day but it’s so good I had to give it a permanent spot in my feed. It’s been pretty rainy and cold here the last week but nature decided to give us just the most perfect November weather and sunset.❤️
  • Happy Monday!! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and got to spend time with the people you love, and hopefully you scored some great Black Friday deals too! .

I didn’t have any sales myself this year, but I couldn’t let the weekend pass without mentioning small business Saturday (even if it’s two days late🙃). If you follow me over on @laurie.smoker you know I’m a huge supporter of small businesses, entrepreneurs, and handmade small shops! I really just love supporting people who are following their dreams and being able to really get to know the person behind the product. I can personally attest to the fact that small business owners put their heart and soul into everything they do for their business. You feel the ups and downs HARD and connect with each of your clients personally. .

It’s been a challenging year for me with a rough pregnancy, a new baby, and a high needs 4 year old going through a lot of transitions. I’d be lying if I said I haven’t struggled with the whole work/personal life balance. Working for yourself, and from home, is wonderful in that you really can set your own schedule, but at the same time it can feel like you never really leave work.😅 It’s a work in progress, but at the end of the day I’m so so happy to call this my job. I’ve been SO fortunate to have such amazing families and couples to work with this year- you guys are really just amazing and make it all worth it! I really can’t thank you all enough.❤️ .

If you made it this far, tag your favorite small business in the comments! And if you’re a small business owner, share your own business!! You all know I’m all about community over competition- we’re all in this together!
  • Finally seeing the light at the end of editing tunnel!!!🙌🏼 If you’ve been waiting on your gallery, it’s coming this week!!
  • Just a little PSA that even photographers can be awkward in front of the camera💁🏼‍♀️ (Swipe for a little Instagram vs reality!) If you’re scrolling through Instagram wondering how there’s so many perfect families and couples out there, I promise you that for every perfect photo, there’s at least 5 of these!
  • We had such a beautiful evening yesterday at Assateague! It’s always such an honor to photograph another photographer and their family. @lindsay.haynes
  • After a busy weekend of working, nothing beats a slow evening with my family❤️ Shout out to my husband for getting a rare shot of me with BOTH of my babies. •
