hiAnd I absolutely love what I do. Every part of photography intrigues me. The lighting, the composition, the emotion, but most especially: the people. The reason I love what I do is because of  YOU! Every photo tells a story; from the day you say “I do” to the newest addition to your family. Moments are constantly fleeting and photography allows time to stand still. Forever. These moments make up your story. And I would love to be able to tell your story.

I was born and raised in West Des Moines, Iowa and left for college in Kansas. After the whole college thing, I graduated and returned home and married my high school sweetheart, John, in 2010! We absolutely love being back in our great home-state!

We have a three-year-old, Jack who has such a big personality. He is the clumsiest and most hilarious little man.


We welcomed sweet Leo to the family at the very end of 2015! Jack loves his baby brother – “Weelo”.

Everyone tells you how quickly time flies with kiddos and it is so true!


If you follow my personal Instagram (@rolowills), you’ll see all kinds of photos from beautiful weddings and super fun families…and lots and lots of Jack + Leo! You can also follow along on Instagram at @laurawillsphotography!


Besides photography, I enjoy spending time with my little family as well as my ever growing extended family.

John and I also love traveling and road trips and chocolate (oh wait, that last one is just me…)
