Laura Smith the photographer at Elysium Photography

Well hi there...

My name is Laura and I am a Sydney based lifestyle photographer, as well as mummy to 2 munchkins, wife to a very handsome wonderful hubby, member of an amazing circle of talented photographer friends, horse riding enthusiast, coffee lover, and serious chocaholic! 

I am constantly inspired by love and adore capturing it in it's various stages throughout our lives. My goal is to connect with you, tell your story through the images we create together, take photos that make you feel something, show the real you. 

I received my first basic camera at age 10 and took it everywhere! My grandad took me shopping for my very own SLR camera in my first year of uni, and it never left my side. I was THAT girl, always seeing the world through a lens and using only black & white film... which could explain why I have such a love for black & white imagery! After achieving my BA in Creative Arts at the end of 2002, I worked in the industry for more than 12 years and then my third baby, Elysium Photography was born at the start of 2015.

I am a firm believer that parents must exist in newborn images and have a strong presence in the photographic story being told throughout life's milestones! It is my job to document these moments in your life and ensure that your existence is lovingly captured as a reference for your future generations.

Oh, and on a final note just so you know, I'm a hugger, I hug everyone - you have been warned!
