Welcome, thank you for your interest in my work. My name is Laura Moran and I am the founder of LM Family Photography, based in the heart of the midlands in the beautiful Lakeland Westmeath, Ireland.

As a busy mother to 4 crazy beautiful children, Jack, Lily, Harry and Ellen-Kate and wife to my biggest supporter James. I am a complete memory collector. My family is everything to me and while home life is definitely hectic I love that I get to experience first hand their little personalities and ever changing features.

When I became a mother I immediately became obsessed with everything babies, with everything birth related and everything family related. I began trying to document so many special memories, realising they mean more to me than I could have imagined and this is exactly what I want to give to my clients.


After training in childcare and special needs I always thought this is where my career would be, however I moved into a completely different field and then studied in accounts & HR. It was James' push for me to purse photography, and so my studies began, and I fell in love. I have now completed numerus of photography courses, specialising in newborns, family and maternity. I have also completed courses in newborn safety and professional editing.

My Work

I enjoy so much all the baby cuddles and the newborn smells, it is such an honour to be asked to capture such precious moments. It is also an honour to sit and chat with Mum about her experience and to be an ear to listen and offer some advice if I can, I love it all.

I am completely obsessed about all things baby, from pregnancy to birth and long after. I am whole heartily passionate about family...

Life moves quickly, babies grow fast, and there are so many special times in our lives that are worth capturing to enjoy for a lifetime. It would be my honour to be your memory collector.

The Moran Boys


I can't recommend Laura enough, We brought our boy Charlie to her for new born photos and she was amazing, she handled Charlie with gentle care and was very professional in creating beautiful photos, Laura has a fantastic eye for capturing the moment and we will definitely be back soon for her to capture more of his milestone moments❤❤

Charlie and his lovely Mummies


Laura was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. She came to our home and was unbelievable with Amelia. She took her time doing the photos and we never felt rushed. We had described to Laura what we wanted and we got that and so much more. We only had one problem and that was trying to choose from the images from the amazing shots she had taken. We absolute adore the photos. Her attitude and work is second to none and would highly recommend Laura.
