So, what do you want to know? The embarrassing things parents usually tell during speeches at 21st birthdays or weddings? Well I’ll show you the serious and stupid side of me.
I come from a family of 5 kids with 2 sets of twins, and yes my dearest Mother used to dress us all in matching clothes (who does that?). I’m the youngest set of twins.
My twin and I used to fight ALL THE TIME. Now we only fight every other day and get over it within a few hours like nothing ever happened. Love/Hate relationship but if you mess with family, you get the whole Adams clan, even if we wear dorky goggles.
Born on the Gold Coast, I have always loved the beach as we would go there every other day.
Coming from a competitive family, we love out sports and we love to win….at all costs.
I started taking photos when my husband first got me a DSLR camera. In 2013 I made the best decision in regards to my photography, I took Tim Coulson’s workshop called The Nursery, which taught me the basics on how to shoot in Manual. I have never looked back.
Courtney Laura Photography began because of my Dad’s old family photo albums. Growing up, Dad would always take photos and print them off, and store them in his photo albums, ranging from 1976 through to present day. Every so often, myself or one of my 4 siblings would pick an album at random and flick through the pages and reminisce over the good times we have had. Now with kids of our own, we find them flicking through the albums with their cousins and trying to guess which one is their Mum or Dad or how crazy little they looked as babies.
This is why I do what I do. I would love to document your story and create albums that can be cherished in the many years to come.
Honestly, I just love weddings. I love to help calm the nerves in the morning as you get ready, cry with you during the ceremony when you first see each other and to laugh with you at the hilarious and inappropriate speeches. I believe in fun, romantic, romantic, but most importantly REAL! Real emotion, real moments, real memories....
