Massachusetts Children and Family Photographer based in Newton and serving Boston, Metrowest and surrounding areas
Hi! My name is Laura! Laura Shachmut (which is pronounced "Shack-Mut" for all of you curious folks :)
Thanks for stopping by! Allow me to introduce myself - I'm a wife and mommy to three amazing little girls. I'm located in Newton, MA where my family and I have called home for the past eight years. I was born and raised in the good state of Arkansas and then relocated to Boston after my husband and I tied the knot. A little while later our first daughter was born, and now there are two more.
So, yes, sometimes I say "Y'all"
Photography crept up on me, but it didn't take very long for me to realize that it was, by far, my creative outlet of choice. When I first started shooting, I surrounded myself with photography books, forums, and those more knowledgeable than myself. I couldn't get enough of it! I started taking classes and skill building with friends and family. Every shoot I did left me both excited and eager for more. After a few years of practice and portfolio building, I opened my business in 2013. Each year has been better than the one before and I'm excited to see where this passion leads me next.
What else is there to say? I love coffee, my favorite color is purple, my favorite shape is a star, and I love capturing life through my lens. :)
