Welcome!

If you are looking for someone to help you capture all those moments worth remembering, look no further.   I am a wedding and portrait photographer with a goal to serve my clients well and to have images they are proud to hang on their wall.  

Hi! I’m Laura!_DSC8775 (1)

I AM A WIFE TO MICHAEL THE BARBER.  GOD HAS BLESSED US WITH TWO GREAT KIDS.  I WORK A FULL TIME JOB THAT I LOVE BUT I NEED A CREATIVE OUTLET.   FOR ME, THAT OUTLET IS DOING PHOTOGRAPHY ON THE WEEKENDS! I ENJOY MEETING NEW PEOPLE AND LOVE TO CREATE IMAGES THAT WILL ONE DAY BECOME HAPPY MEMORIES.

MY LOVE FOR PHOTOGRAPHY FIRST STARTED BACK IN HIGH SCHOOL WHEN I WORKED ON THE YEAR BOOK STAFF.  AFTER WE HAD OUR FIRST CHILD, I QUICKLY FOUND THAT PASSION AGAIN AS I DOCUMENTED ALL HER LITTLE MILESTONES WITH PICTURES.    MY HUSBAND RECOGNIZED THE JOY THIS BROUGHT ME AND COMPLETELY SURPRISED ME WITH MY FIRST DSLR CAMERA FOR CHRISTMAS WHILE I WAS EXPECTING OUR SON.

BEFORE LONG,  PEOPLE STARTED APPROACHING ME TO TAKE THEIR FAMILY PORTRAITS AND SPECIAL EVENTS. THROUGH TRIAL AND ERROR , A THIRST TO LEARN MORE WITH ENCOURAGEMENT AND SUPPORT FROM THOSE WHO CARE ABOUT ME…. LAURA CHATHAM PHOTOGRAPHY WAS BORN.

TO ALL THOSE PEOPLE ( YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE)  …..THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART.
