About Hansell Photography

HI! I am Laura! I love capturing moments. Big moments, little moments, fleeting moments, OMG moments, ANY and ALL moments! I am a mother to a preschooler, who hates to have his picture taken, and a wife of 11 years to my best friend, who is an engineer. We live in the country! The city just was not for us so we live where the little boy can run and play, the husband and tear stuff apart, the views are glorious, the air is clean (even if it does occasionally smell of eu de pig... or cow) and the drive to town is relaxing. I use all natural light and shoot on location in the the greater IOWA region. After all this great state is not that big... From the south west corner to the north central areas of Iowa although I have been known to travel east on occasion. Together we can decide where best to capture your moments. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have or to schedule your session. Looking forward to hearing from you!!

Newborn- Owen

Wednesday, July 15th, 2009

This little guy is Owen. He was so good the whole time I was there and it was so hot. One of the hottest days we have had this year so we didn’t take too many photos. We adults just couldn’t handle it.

This little guy is sure to be spoiled. The youngest of 4 and the only boy.

Thanks Molly and Lee for allowing me to invade your house for the afternoon. I’m sure I’ll be bugging you again in the future.

Katie Photo


Katie just turned a year old at the end of May. She has such a sweet little personality. She was so excited to sit on her dads favorite pedal tractor.




Katie’s mom was using this basket to hold all their shoes by the backdoor. I thought it would be perfect for what I had planned.



My husband and I have been friends with this couple going on 9 years. They are just the sweetest people.

Deb wanted a family portrait and I just couldn’t resist capturing this moment as they were getting Katie ready. It is my favorite from that day.



I love how she is looking at this doll.

I can confirm that she did not willing touch this doll the whole time I was there.
