About

head-shot-laurie-1000-pxHi! I’m Laurie…Thanks for stopping by.

Welcome to Pride in Photos. I am smitten with photography, it is seriously AWESOME!  Capturing a memory that you can have forever, what can compare to this?! With a lens, I see the beauty in everyday life, whether it is in textures, light, the eyes…well you get the picture.

I have two major loves in this field, one is families, especially the children and the seniors. Capturing the amazing range of love and emotion in the kiddos, nothing speaks to my heart more. The second, capturing a travel adventure, it is the best souvenir a family can bring home from their travels. Your photos will transport you back to your vacation and the preserve the BIG moments your family had.

This is my place to record creations, designs, thoughts, inspirations, but most of all photographic memories. I’d love to capture your moments, big or small.

Please email lsriver4310 at gmail dot com to contact me for information regarding availability and pricing in the greater Houston, TX area.

If you would like to check us out a little more before hiring us, you will find a page called “Featured Here” where you can see where we have been featured or awarded for our photography. Feel free to click on the images and it will take you to the blogs/websites.

I hope Pride in Photos will become your daily retreat for encouragement and inspiration! It’s essentially my playground, it’s a piece of art for me and hopefully people can connect with it. We have added a new feature on our posts that is called, “Tip of the Day for Bloggers/Photographers!”

Thank you for letting me share my prospective on how I see the world through the glass.

Welcome to the family! We hope you will join the community here. They are fantastic and just great fun! To connect please go to the bottom footer and fill in your email where it says, “Join Today!” Your email is safe with us…pinky promise!

Thanks for coming by! It makes me smile and all that good stuff:)

Sincerely, Laurie

  13. Hi Laurie… glad to connect and interact with you.. :)
    Thanks for stopping by and following my blog. Best wishes to you.. !!

  14. Nice blog. I agree with your thoughts on travel photography. The vivid memories from summer trips with the family would not be so vivid without the photos captured that now remind me of what a great time we had as a family.

  15. Laurie I have nominated you for an Awesomeness award. The badge is on my post from 4/20/13.

    I realize these awards take time to respond to so do not feel you have to comply with the requirements.

    1. List your top ten favorite blogs and notify them.

    2. List 10 things we do not know about yourself.

  17. Hi Laurie,

    Thanks for your recent comment on my blog post about making a good first impression. It led me to your interesting blog, which I am now following.

    I am fascinated by photographers and their work. I, for the life of me, can’t take a picture. I end up with a picture of the ground or the sky, anything but the subjects.

    Happy blogging!

  18. Hiya! So nice of you to look in on my blog (or blogs, lol), I appreciate it very much. From what I have seen of your own one so far it looks very inspirational – just what I need – and I will be sure to keep an eye open for your posts! Handy that you have a Facebook page, too :-)

  19. thank you for stopping by my blog – your photos are quite beautiful. i am afraid i am a bit of a neophyte, and in case you may have not noticed, almost all of my pictures are of our dog. since the advent of my i-phone, taking spur of the moment shots it a possibility. again thanks – :)

  20. Hi Laurie thank you for liking my post today. It had remembered from reading your blog, you live in Florida, and I wondered if you recognized where my pics were shot from. I hope you are enjoying Houston. I love the citrus cards…as I have seen the citrus farms here and rightly not as lovely as the ones you posted. Happy day and blessings to you… Ellie
