Hey there! I’m Laurie- creator and photographer behind S&L Photography. I’m a 27 year old family and wedding photographer, wife to my high school sweetheart, mother to an adorable red headed three year old boy, and fur mama to my 12 year old husky/malamute mix named Dodger and 8 year old tabby cat named Oliver- just doing life in Salisbury, MD. I’m East Coast born and raised, but having spent 6 years in Lawrence, KS (go Jayhawks!), part of my heart will always belong to the Midwest. I bought my first canon dslr in 2012 and haven’t looked back!

I consider myself an intimate, lifestyle photographer and specialize in children and families, though I also take on a limited number of weddings each year. Light, sun filled, colorful images are my favorite. My camera bag stays pretty simple- a couple of prime lenses are all I need for most sessions. My goal as a photographer is to create a fun and relaxing environment so I can document families just playing and being themselves. My favorite images are always full of emotion, detail, and movement- the way your daughter twirls in her dress, the way you brush her hair back to kiss her forehead, the excitement in your son’s face when he shows you a new rock or stick he found, and the way you smile and hang on every word he says. Capturing intimate, genuine moments between couples and families is what I live for! I do not shy away from harsh light and shadows. I want to beautifully document the moment for what it is; I fully believe that as a photographer my job is first and foremost to be a story teller. If you are looking for standard posing, or studio sessions with lots of props, I’m not your girl- and I’m ok with that!

I am naturally detail oriented and hold myself to high standards in all that I do. Every part of my photography process, from choosing equipment, location scouting and session styling, helping clients plan outfits and session timing, to editing and product packaging/presentation, is thoughtfully done with attention to detail and quality. I pride myself on my quick turnaround time for both online galleries and product delivery. I want my clients to have the best, because you deserve it!

If you are interested in having me document your family or wedding, please shoot me an email at laurie@slphotographs.com or use the contact form linked at the top of the page. I can’t wait to meet you and create beautiful images together!

  • Just a couple more days until the Delmarva Kids Expo! If you’re looking for something fun to do with your kids on Saturday, definitely stop by! There will be lots of fun activities for kids provided by the vendors, and it’s a great chance to discover kid friendly local businesses. I’ll be there, so make sure to stop by to say hi and get a fun spring themed photo!
  • I’m getting so excited for my spring sessions! I have a poll in my stories, but in case you missed it: I’m curious, are you guys interested in seeing more of my personal work and/or behind the scenes video and photos? Things like editing before and afters, behind the scenes video from upcoming sessions, what my products and packaging process looks like. I’ve got a lot coming up in the next few months so let me know what you would like to see!❤️
  • In case you haven’t heard, my little family is growing! We’re expecting a baby girl in June.💕 I will continue to schedule Spring family sessions through May, and will be taking a break for most of June and July, then resume family sessions in August. I couldn’t be more excited, and will be documenting lots of baby prep over on my personal account. So if you’re into that, feel free to follow me over on @laurie.smoker
  • Cheers to the weekend!🍻
  • Packaging up print orders is definitely one of my favorite things to do.❤️
  • Happy Friday everyone! Time to announce the giveaway winner! And the winner is..... @raia228 😁 I’ll be in touch shortly to set up your free session! Thank you so much to everyone who entered, stay tuned for Spring promotions and future giveaways. •
