I’m Laurie Sachs!
Northern Los Angeles County’s award winning, premiere, newborn, maternity, child, and family photographer.
I am a wife and mother of four busy children-18, 15, 11, and 8, who eats, sleeps, and breathes photography. I love, love, love my kids, my guy, my dogs, and my camera, a great book and a good cup of coffee. I have had the privilege of photographing nearly 300 brand new people, and countless families, expectant mammas, and babies and children of all ages.
My background is in History and Art History and I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Humanities, with a concentration in Art History, and a Master of Arts degree in American Cultural History and Classics. A constant admirer of art, I never considered myself an artist, that is until I found my medium. I’ve always had an interest in photography but after the birth of my first child that interest really grew into a passion.
I am a member of the Professional Photographers of America, Professional Photographers of California, and the Santa Clarita Valley Photographers Association. I have won numerous awards including the Fuji Masterpiece Award for the state of California and I was named the 2012 California Family Photographer of the Year, top 10 photographer in the state of California, and top 20 photographer nationally by the Professional Photographers of America.
As a mother and photographer I think what I’ve always wanted to capture is a little more than what they look like, a little bit of their essence to tuck away and save for later.
I hope when I am an old woman, when my perfect children are grown, I can pull out a photo of one of my kids and feel it, that “I love you so much it hurts” all over again. This is what I hope to share with you, the families I am so privileged to photograph.
Let’s tailor your portrait session to capture the moments that are important to you- the tenderness of your husband with your newborn baby, the silliness between siblings, the joy you feel for each other. Your life… beautifully captured.
