thank you for your interest in my work. My name is Laura Moran and LM Family Photography is my baby.

Based in the heart of the midlands in the beautiful Lakeland of Co.Westmeath

My studio is based just outside Mullingar making it very accessible from Meath, Longford, Cavan, and Kildare.

I am a busy mother to 4 crazy beautiful children, and wife to my biggest supporter James, and I am a complete memory collector.

My love for photography did not start for the love of the art of photography but more so from the love of photographs, and what they truly mean to me. I describe myself as a memory collector because that is exactly what I am. I have boxes upon boxes of old photos, some are even of family events from before I was born. I love to spend time looking through them and can often get lost for hours in them. Remembering the moments or imaging the story behind the images I am not part of. It literally floods me with so many different emotions. Photographs are a pretty special thing, something I think we can often under estimate the value of.

Life moves quickly, babies grow fast, and there are so many special times in our lives that are worth documenting so that we can enjoy them for a lifetime, and long after.

It would be my honour to be your memory collector.

Laura’s work is so beautiful I knew straight away I wanted her to take our newborn photos. She was so patient and gentle with our little girl, my husband and I called her the baby whisperer! She took her time to make sure we got all of the photos we wanted and at no time did we feel rushed or stressed. We were delighted with the outstanding quality of our photo album and framed photo and they will be treasured forever. Looking forward to capturing many more memories with Laura in the future


Laura Moran (LM Photography) is a genuinely firendly and exceptionally talented photogapaher with a keen eye for capturing the most precious moments in her beautiful studio. Laura takes great care and time with her clients (epecially the little ones only a few weeks old) and establishes a comfortable, friendly environment for the entire family to relax, take their time and enjoy the whole experience (from the initial booking, the photo session(s), selecting photos and products).


I recently got both a Maternity and Newborn photoshoot done with Laura. She is such an amazingly talented person and so lovely and friendly. The photos we got are ones to be treasured forever. Myself and my husband are over the moon with them- cannot recommend Laura enough. Lindsey, Steven & baby Matilda


If there was an option to give 10 stars I would! Laura recently took some family photographs for me. She is so unbelievably talented at what she does. From the minute I contacted her she was so lovely to deal with. The day of the shoot Laura put us all at ease, she followed our lead but respectively guided us on the shoot..she has a wonderful way with children and was so patient. I wasnt sure with a busy three year old how it would go but the images she produced of my family blew me away. Highly recommend


I cannot recommend Laura enough. Initially I wanted a photo shoot for my newborn baby girl. Laura suggested we do a family session. I wasn’t very keen on the idea with being a new mum but it was the best decision I’ve ever made! Laura was very professional and so gentle with the kids. We were so relaxed during the shoot. The photos turned out amazing. I cant wait to put them on my wall. Thank you laura


We recently got newborn photos done of our daughter Ailbhe with Laura and found that from the time we got to her studio to when we recieved our photos to be an
Amazing experience. Laura understood what it meant to us to capture these precious early memories of Ailbhe and our family and done such a professional but personal job on the photos. We would and have been recommending Laura to anyone wishing to capture these moments. We look forward to working with her again
