Welcome! I am the photographer, creator, and story-teller behind Laura Tjepkes Photography.
My creative journey started when i was a little girl. whether it was decorating my bedroom, painting a wall, or re ARRANGING my room, the Creativity was always there. looking BACK AT MY CHILDHOOD is when my true passion for photography got started. My mom was always right next to my brother and i taking the pictures. At the time I found it very annoying but now looking back it’s something, till this day, I cherish.
As a little girl I would always pick up my mom’s camera to take “pretend” pictures, Which turned into borrowing her camera, even through college. It wasn’t until my husband bought me my first DSLR camera for christmas that i finally could quit borrowing hers. Now I am “that mom” who is always taking pictures of everything my children do Because I understand how valuable a picture really is.
After our third child was born I attended a photography class to help me understand the true potential of my camera. It was at that point that my passion for photography grew by leaps and bounds; turning into a career for which i am so GRATEFUL!
I am married to the love of my life, Brent. We have been married for 7 years. together we have three beautiful children Lincoln, Melina, Lyla and Amelia!
SOME OF MY FAVORITES
When I am not working you will probably find me in my kitchen cooking up a homemade meal. Beside me will be my children fighting over who gets to pour in whatever the next ingredient might be. Working out is another hobby I try to fit into every day. It helps keep my mind stress free and clear. Together my husband and I loved to work on a good house project! We bought a fixer upper and it has needed a lot of love so they are never ending! Lastly, I love getting lost in a good book. I could snuggle up by the fireplace and a coffee and I’d prolly be there all day!
