I have been taking pictures since I was a little girl, but professionally for over 11 years. At first I shot a lot of families and kids. But then a friend of mine asked if I would photograph the birth of her first baby. Of course I said YES! And after that I was hooked. I am just in awe of the beauty and strength that mothers and fathers have while bringing their baby into the world and I decided that was something that needed to be captured to look back on forever. I love babies! So with that passion I started specializing in Labor and Delivery and Newborn Photography. I took classes and got certified specifically in Newborn safety. I am certified with the Academy Of Newborn Photography!  

Hello!! My name is Laura Peterson. I live in Grand Island Ne. I was born here and I love it. I am married to a wonderful man named Aaron. We have been married for almost 12 years. We have 2 daughters, Charli (7) and Atley (4). We have one pup named Oakley. We live on the edge of town on a few acres and have apple trees in our back yard and horses next door!

My favorite place to be is home, but I do love to see new things! I love to bake and a cup of coffee is usually in my hand! I am very laid back and easy going. I love to have friends over and hang out by the fire-pit out back.

My favorite animal is a whale. Even tho I have yet to see one in real life!! (SeaWorld doesn't count)

My favorite color switches from purple to teal fairly regularly. 

My coffee has to be HOT. Like super hot.

My favorite flower is an Orchid. I think because It's my Grandpa's favorite and he's the most amazing person I know.

I'm afraid of eels.....((shivers)) so gross

I love to color. I steal my daughters coloring books...sshh

And I have never gotten a speeding ticket!
