Seriously, Summer, I will let you be my model any day of the week. Thank you SO MUCH for your help and willingness to drive so far down to the OC. You were a trooper.

And a HUGE thank you to you,
Jessica, for taking the time to shoot with me and help me out with lots of great information. I had such a fun time.

And guess what, peeps? I'm currently in the process of building up my portfolio, so if you're looking for family portraits, headshots, engagements, whatever, it is your chance to get my services for a smokin' hot deal! So email me (laurel.lakey@gmail.com) if you are interested or would like to know more. I will travel anywhere in Orange or Riverside counties for free, along with any other location for a travel fee.

These are GORGEOUS Laurel! I will book you for October SLC again ;) I'll be there for a whole week, so bet we will find some time! I just LOVE the photos you've taken. I am just through Lynda.com training in Lightroom and this gets more and more of an addiction LOL yep another one ;) Now I need to come up with a serious model too! Anyway... I love what you've done here! Awesome! And keeping my fingers crossed for you!

I forgot to tell you that Jed and I ran into Summer, Ian, and Summer's parents at the Gateway on Saturday. It was good to see the Smiths again. These pictures are great by the way. :)

Oh yeah, she told me that, what a small world! :)

Um, it feels a little strange (to be shot). :) haha
Good Job! I'm excited & happy for you.

I was a little worried with that title, it could sound a little dark - but since I know you are a photographer I finally figured that's what it must be. . . Totally gorgeous Laurel! I want to see more of your stuff - you'll have to let me know when you have an online portfolio or gallery or something. Love it!

Erin said...

Sign me up! Oh, wait, we don't live in Orange County anymore! :( Let me know when you come to SLC again. We'd love to have family photos taken!

Christy said...

Put me on the SLC list again too! These look awesome Laurel! You are making me anxious for my workshop with Debbie in a couple of weeks! ;)

JoDell said...

Wow! You're amazing! And Summer is just as gorgeous as ever, of course.

If we didn't live on the other side of the country, I would definitley be calling you for some family pics.

Laurel - You did a great job. Actually that is quite similar to what I do. The only issue that I have found is that you can't really take the good pictures of your own family, for example Dan and I without having a tripod.
