Hello! My name is Laura Egan and I am the founder of Whine & Cheese Photography (est.2016). I have always loved photography and am thrilled to be able to make my passion a career. I make many of my own props and can do custom items if you want something special. The studio is located in West Joliet/South Plainfield in the Camelot subdivision.
I have two special needs boys that keep me very busy, and a couple of fun pets as well. We also homeschool, so that's a whole different type of challenge! My husband owns a woodworking business and is always designing cool new props for me to work with.
I love to work with newborns and young babies, they are my favorite. You can bring so much creativity into the session by coordinating colors and special themes, and that makes it much more exciting for me. My hobbies are traveling, kayaking, crafting, and reading new books.
I love capturing genuine moments and true smiles. Come to your session ready to play! Those candid moments make my heart sing, and while everyone may not be smiling at the camera perfectly I find those are the moments I look back on with the most fondness. That's real life.
I edit true to life, meaning that I will eliminate small blemishes and scrapes but do not alter birthmarks, body shape, or permanent facial characteristics (wrinkles, moles).
I do not overshoot, which is to mean that you should not expect excessive quantities of images. I will
curate a gorgeous gallery of the best images to review and select from.
I do travel for sessions. If you live out of state, contact me for details. I'm always open to new locations!
