The Welcoming Co. – A Birth & Family Photographer – Pittsboro, North Carolina

The Branding Experience



I'm a NC based brand photographer (but I love to travel for work+fun). Joanna Gaines is my spirit animal, and in another life (maybe this one) I'd probably move to Waco, TX!

I'm always down to try a new local coffee shop (even better if they have lavender latte), and working on mastering the perfect at home brew recipe. 


You know the feeling of “wow, I am so grateful for the opportunity to work with the clients and the small businesses I get to see bring life into their brand?” or just that overflowing sense of joy & abundance? That is the feeling I had when I left Laura’s Branding Experience last week …

Laura is a birth & family photographer based in Pittsboro and she’s one of the sweetest people I’ve met! We actually crossed paths via Instagram about a year ago and I am so glad we did! Over the past few months, Laura has been building her business to thrive on her mission of being

passionate about capturing your simple joys.

And friends, after spending the day photographing her doing her passion, I definitely can see her passion and I hope these images just show you a glimpse of her joy! We chose to use The Graham Mill as her location for a few reasons but the main reason was, Laura & her family are in the process of building their first home so a office was far from possible between the home building process and such! The Mill was a wonderful space for us to create vignettes for each part of Laura’s branding experience from the office to the behind the scenes to the lifestyle portraits at the end, it was incredible!

My favorite part of Laura’s experience was the after! From the moment I got home to the moment I delivered her gallery, Laura was just overly thankful and in awe of the photographs I captured and the amount of JOY that is displayed in them. And with her already sharing the photographs with her audience, I only hope that they feel the same way! She’s ready to welcome her families into the #welcofam and I am so excited to see where this passion takes her!

We had such a fun time! If you’re interested in booking your branding session, I’d love to walk you through the process, inquire here!
