Life and Light Hawaii

Life and light. They are both gifts! Both magical, and both fleeting. And sometimes there are moments when they join up together perfectly, and time stands still. And if you're lucky, someone is there with a camera to capture it all! Then somewhere down the road, you can go back and feel a child's arms around your neck. hear the sound of your kids splashing in the ocean, or remember the best day of your life. These are things that matter, and someday when I'm old and sitting in my rocking chair, I want to remember every beautiful, messy detail of this miracle we call life. Life and Light Hawaii Photography is based in Kona, Hawaii, but serves all areas of the Big Island with family, senior, and wedding photography.


"In him was life; and the life was the light of man."  John 1:4


Family Session

What an amazing experience! Laura was so great to work with! She was patient with our three boys and made the experience so enjoyable! We got our pictures lighting fast and I cannot recommend her enough! Thank you for these photos that we will cherish forever!


Extended Family Session

One of the BEST photo experiences we've ever had. We had a large family of 14...and 6 were kids under the age of 5! Laura was just absolutely phenomenal with the kids. She was patient and so kind, and had great methods to work with the kids and environment. The family photo totally blew our minds. Everyone was raving about how gorgeous it turned out. Laura got every picture on our list, and then some great casual shots which are sure to be priceless! Thank you for giving us such a wonderful experience.

Waipio Wedding

My wedding pictures were amazing!! She really captured the magic of that day. I can look at these pictures and totally relive one of the best days of my life. I can't thank you enough for putting up with our wild, crazy family and capturing these beautiful memories for us!


Lucky me

Somehow, I'm the luckiest girl in the world. I'm wifey to the guy I liked in 7th grade and mommy to four incredible kiddos. A few years back we packed up our life in Idaho and moved to the Big Island of Hawaii to help serve Jesus in a little Baptist church. Sunshine and adventure were added bonuses!

I can't wait to meet you and hear your story!

Call me, text, email. Whatever!
