After years of admiring Laura's work and seeing shoots that she had done for friends, I was thrilled when I finally had the opportunity to use Polinski Photography. Laura was very professional but also able to put me at ease in order to get great shots. I am so happy with the final product. I can't recommend Polinski Photography enough.

I just wanted to thank you for the great job you did with our family Christmas pictures. You were great with the kids--no tears this year! All the pictures turned out great!
-Linda Grimm Franz
Laura just did a Christmas shoot for my husband and I and our fur/feather family and they turned out AMAZING! Laura was so easy going and made our shoot so much fun, I don't think we stopped laughing throughout the whole shoot 🤣 . I could not be happier with how amazing the pictures turned out and we will definitely be having her again!! Thank you again, Laura!!! 😍
Laura is an amazing photographer! She did such a wonderful job photographing my family! It can be tough to get an extremely active 4 year old and a 5 month old to be smiling at the same time, but she did it! She was so friendly and easy going, it made it so easy to smile and be ourselves during our family photos.
I would highly recommend Laura to anyone looking for beautiful pictures!😀
Laura is amazing! Our kids were definitely having meltdowns and you would never know looking at these photos. I loved going through our pictures, so happy with how they turned out!!
Laura is so sweet, patient, and accommodating!! She did an amazing job with my husband and I and THREE dogs 🤪 I’m in love with our photos and it went so smoothly. Highly recommended and will use in the future!!!
Laura is amazing! I hired her to take group staff photos for my skin care center and I couldn't be happier. Not only did the photos turn out beautifully, she was so kind and patient with us all and made us feel at ease during the photo shoot. Best of all, her turnaround time with the photos was incredibly fast. Highly recommend Laura.
Absolutely phenomenal! My 2 year old can be a lot and Laura was so patient. I was worried we wouldn’t have any nice pictures because he was being a terror. Nope! We have so many perfect pictures, I don’t know what to do with them all!! 100% recommend!
Laura is so talented and creative! She brought TONS of adorable options for our newborn to pose in along with all of her equipment to happily work (safely masked) in 90 degree heat so we could have an outside photoshoot during the pandemic. She had great ideas and a quick turnaround. We are thrilled with the photos and will definitely be using her again. Thanks Laura!
Having a good photographer was very important to my husband and I, and Polinski Photography delivered! The day passes so quickly it’s almost impossible to take it all in. I’m so happy to have so many amazing pictures to help us relive the day.
We had and 8-hour package and Polinski Photography was able to capture each and every important moment. Additionally, we have lots of different angles and variations of each of these moments. With all these different options we have found pictures we love of each special moment.
Laura and Max were also great to work with. We meet with Laura before the wedding to talk through logistics and style. This made things much easier on the day of the wedding. On our big day Lara and Max were organized as well as creative. They were both so friendly putting us at easy. Ultimately, we have great unique shots that look natural.
We couldn’t be happier with Polinski Photography and would recommend Lara and Max to anyone!

We love having Laura as our family photographer! She’s easy to work with, affordable and not afraid to be silly to make our son smile. Laura is very professional when it comes to timelines. We always get our pictures back so quickly. She does very well at capturing perfect moments in natural settings. We can’t wait to use Polinski Photography for future photo sessions!
Laura took our family photos and did an amazing job! The pictures literally captured our true personalities. We couldn’t be more pleased. Laura was so fun to work with. All three of our young kids had such a fun time during our photoshoots . We can’t wait to use Laura again!
Working with Laura was such a great experience! She is nice, easy-going, and very talented. Laura was also great with our kids, and she has a way of making you feel very comfortable during the photography session. Laura did an excellent job and I can't wait to have her take more family photos for us!
-Erica Dennis Lyons
Our family had a wonderful experience with Polinski Photography. Our photo shoot was a gift from our daughters and it was the perfect gift. The photos are beautiful and will be cherished forever. Laura has a wonderful way of making everyone feel comfortable and relaxed, and the results are very natural, fun photos of everyone. Thanks Laura!
I can't say enough how happy I am with my photos, but also the experience from start to finish. I had family pictures done with my mother and toddler. My mother was physically limited, and my toddler acting like a pain in the rear but Laura could not have been nicer and more accommodating. So easy to get along with and I loved all her ideas leading up to the shoot and during. After the pictures were done, I had a special request done to them and without hesitation, Laura changed some for me. I'll for sure be coming back to her for future shoots....as long as she isn't completely booked!!!
-Jessica Fekete Tracey
Laura was the perfect choice for my daughter’s senior pictures. Although she did not have experience photographing horses, she took the time to research and prepare, which I totally appreciated. She stopped at nothing in order to get the picture even laying on the dirt! I also appreciated that it was a one-time fee and that I got access to all the photos versus other photographers who charge over $1,000 for 20 pictures. Finally, I want to say that Laura’s photographs tell a story, each photo is thought through from the background setting to the subject(s). I highly recommend her for your next family photograph, wedding, baby, etc. You will certainly not be disappointed!
Laura is a fantastic photographer! She was so easy and great to work with, and made us feel comfortable during the whole photoshoot. We had family pictures taken and she captured us perfectly and took such beautiful photos! She was so easy to book with and returned our pictures incredibly fast! I would highly recommend Laura and Polinski Photography for any event! So happy we got our pictures taken with Laura!
Laura did a fantastic job on our daughter’s newborn photos! She has tons of adorable outfits to dress your newborn in! She also has tons of ideas to make the photos unique and cute!! We are very happy with Laura’s photos and would recommend her to anyone!
Laura is extremely talented and is an amazing photographer. She has documented many of life’s moments for us through her amazing photography. Whether it’s birthday parties, family photos or Christmas photos, Laura never disappoints. She is kind, friendly and extremely talented. I would recommend her for any of life’s special events!
We loved having our engagement pictures taken by Laura!! We were a little nervous but she made us feel extremely comfortable and brought a bunch of pictures of different poses for us to try. She truly has a vision for photography and came up with some great ideas for photos around Schenley Park in Oakland. We loved how our pictures turned out and can’t wait for our wedding photos!
Laura and Max are fantastic. They went out of their way to ensure everything was perfect on our day. They truly care about their work and they are so talented.
We needed to streamline the photos, in order to maximize the amount of time we were allotted in the church to take photos after the ceremony. They took our instructions and ensured we got every portrait we wanted.
They were great about placing the group in the various locations. We are so excited to see the finished product.
Their turnaround time is also fantastic. They turned our engagement photos around very quickly, and we already had sneak peaks of our wedding the day after!
We cannot recommend Polinksi Photography enough – they will make sure your day is captured spectacularly!
Laura did an awesome job with our newborn's photo shoot. She came prepared and set up a photo studio in our living room! She had lot of props to choose from, which was very helpful to us, because it helped us get ideas for additional pictures. She was very patient with our baby, even when he had his meltdown moments. She turned our pictures around quickly and the final product was awesome! I highly recommend her!
Laura did a beautiful job on our newborn photos. she came to our home for the shoot and was very respectful and patient with us, our baby, and our animals. she provided tons of props and photo ideas. we'll definitely be hiring her again for more family photos! highly recommend!
This was my second shoot with Laura. She was amazing! She had a ton of great props and I was also able to use my own props and costumes for our newborn shoot. She was totally flexible when the baby was fussy or when I needed to change her diaper. She was wonderful with Ellie and had great ideas for poses and costumes. We can’t wait to use her again!
Laura is very talented and a pleasure to work with! I highly recommend her for any type of photo shoot. She took my professional work photos and they turned out great. I would definitely use Polinski Photography again.
Laura photographed our son for his high school senior pictures & they are absolutely perfect! Laura chose excellent locations for backgrounds at Oglebay Park & had a great rapport with our son. We really liked the black & white photos of our son at each location. We will definitely call upon Polanski Photography in the future!
I got Laura's info from a friend and I am extremely grateful for her being recommended. She took family photos for us and they are soooooo great! We have definitely found our family photographer and are very excited to work with her from here on out. I couldn't be happier with the final result, and it was extremely affordable, not to mention she came to my home which made having my 2 year old cooperate that much easier. I wish I would have met her sooner, but I'm grateful for it happening period! Thank you again Laura! I am beyond impressed with the magic you've created!
-The Thoms family
Wonderful experience. Extremely accommodating and was able to get some great smiles of our family! Thankful for the memories she captured for us! 😊
-Leah Farrow Meehan
Laura is the best! She took my daughters senior pictures and they turned out GREAT! My daughter enjoyed working with Laura and felt very comfortable with her. I can’t wait to get some family photos done next. I highly recommended Laura to do any photo shoot you need.
Laura was recommended to me from quite a few people I know. We just had Fall photos taken and my husband and I are beyond happy with how they turned out! Her availability is great and very flexible to be able work with our busy schedules as well. She is great and expierienced with kids, which is very important to me! We already have our Christmas photos scheduled! I'm so happy to have found a new family photographer!
Even though I only met Laura one time and spend an hour with her.... she was so down to earth and easy to talk to about what we wanted. My kids are not the easiest to deal with when it comes to cooperating but Laura was so chill that she was all Smiles regardless. If you need and want a patient photographer, I
HIGHLY recommended this wonderful lady! 😊
Laura did some family pictures for us and they turned out great!! She was so good with my 14 month old son and now we have such memorable pictures :) Thank you Laura!
She took beautiful shots of my son's 1st year pictures and 5 dogs!! Extremely easy going and always makes sure you are happy with everything.
Laura did our family pictures this fall and it was a wonderful experience. She captured our best moments beautifully and kept us at ease, making the whole experience enjoyable even while trying to wrangle our little ones. My son said when we were finished, that was actually fun! We can’t wait to frame our favorites.
Laura did my sons senior pictures! We absolutely love all of them. She did a wonderful job and went above and beyond what I ever could have imagined. She is extremely talented and such a pleasure to work with! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Highly recommend this girl for all you photography needs! 10 ✨ ⭐️ stars

Laura is AMAZING- not only is she flexible and accommodating, but she’s energetic, calming & has a great eye to capture memories. Kids aren’t always easy to photograph but she made them feel comfortable & didn’t force anything during our shoot. Her turnaround, quality & pricing are the best I’ve ever worked with in 6 years of family photos. She’s most definitely our family photographer for life.
Laura and Max were AMAZING to work with. You can tell from the start they are two genuinely kind people that share a passion for photography. Laura made sure to get a clear understanding of our vision. She even graciously allowed me to create a Pinterest board for us with some inspiration. Laura came with it printed out and ready to go to make sure everything on our list was captured! I cannot say enough great things about Laura and Max. They have a great eye and move quickly to ensure every moment is captured. We will certainly be using them for whatever photography needs come our way in the future! THANK YOU, Laura & Max!
Laura and Max were incredible to work with for our recent wedding on 9.2.18. The two of them are genuinely kind people. They are so talented and made sure to capture every moment we wanted. We highly recommend using Polinski Photography for any photography needs! Thank you, Laura and Max, for everything! We cannot wait to see the rest of the pictures!
Laura is fantastic! She worked with my husband, newborn son, and me at Mingo Creek Park. I was more than impressed that she took a drive through the park before we got there to find the perfect spot for lighting for the time of day. She truly has an eye for lighting and angles! Laura has a lot of great suggestions for poses and worked with us to do what was most comfortable for our family. She came prepared with props and outfits for the newborn photos. She took more pictures than she needed to capture the perfect moments and showed us samples throughout our session to make sure we were happy with how we were moving forward. I also appreciate that she took pictures with our suggestions also. I previously had pictures done with photographers who did not like that we wanted certain shots but Laura was more than accommodating to our needs. She's very personable and has an amazing artistic talent for capturing the pictures we fell in love with. I am more than happy with our session and can't wait to work with Laura again in the future!
Laura has done all my sons (Max) pictures. she is awesome with getting his attention and I am always surprised with how amazing her pictures turn out! It's very hard to get good pictures of babys and she turns them into works of art! She is very flexible with locations and she even came to our house for newborn photos. I would recommend her to anyone!!!! ❤
-Jenna Nicole Bickford
Laura was AMAZING and was such a delight to work with. She is very talented and captured such wonderful memories for our family. Laura photographed my daughter's birthday party and was able to capture our family and friends in a beautiful way. She was so patient and kind, which is definitely an amazing attribute when photographing families with little children. We already scheduled another family photoshoot. Thank you so much Laura!
Laura did a newborn session for us recently and was absolutely wonderful to work with. She was very accommodating from start to finish and made sure that we were happy with the shots as she went along. She has a great eye for spotting shots that will look beautiful with lighting, angles, etc. We got to take all of the shots that we had hoped for, along with some other moments that we hadn’t planned on, but she captured on a whim, and they look great! I would highly recommend her; you’ll have a stress-free experience with very nice results.
Laura is extremely talented! I highly recommend her for a newborn shoot! She even took our first family photo! She takes her time, making sure to get the perfect shot of your little one! Talent cannot be taught, she definitely has a great eye for the perfect shot! You will not be disappointed when you choose her!!!
She did a fabulous job on Grandson Noel Thomas Wansolich first baby pictures and his first family pictures with mommy and daddy..I Love you..
-Mona Gearhart Blakeslee
Laura is awesome! Not only were her photos very beautifully done and creative, she is also fun to work with, timely, and professional!
I cannot say enough about our experience with Polinski Photography. My fiancé and I were not even planning on having engagement pictures taken, but then we thought, “why not?”! I am so glad that we did, and that we chose Laura as our photographer! It was such a FUN time! I think we laughed the whole time. Laura was very open to our ideas and she had many ideas of her own for us to try. Laura made us feel comfortable and her smile is very contagious. I think she had fun too! I would recommend Polinski Photography to anyone. Can’t wait for Laura to capture our wedding in June! And also looking forward to a family holiday portrait in the future! Thank you, Laura.

I can’t wait to work with Laura again!

Laura was amazing to work with! We had little pre-conceived ideas for our engagement photos and she continuously created the most perfect settings for our pictures. There were so many fantastic photos we still can’t pick just one favorite. So glad that we had Laura for this session and we are looking forward to an amazing event on our wedding day!
We have worked with Polinski Photography two years in a row at our celebrity fashion show. We couldn’t have been more pleased. They were extremely professional and the quality of work couldn’t have been better. And it doesn’t hurt that they were amazing at communicating with us on our big event! Highly recommend and are definitely hiring them for our 3rd annual event next year!
I cannot recommend this photographer enough! We had the pleasure of commissioning Laura to do our engagement and wedding photos. She was extremely responsive, professional, detailed, and creative with her work. Each picture turned out phenomenal and we are so pleased we chose Polinski Photographer for our special day.
