Good to meet you


I’m Laura, the lady behind the lens at Laura Acton Photography. I am so passionate about what I do, I cannot wait to share that with you!

I hail from the Midwest -- go Hoosiers! -- and have been living in Austin since 2011. I’m a quote-a-holic… I’m *always* looking for some encouraging and uplifting words of wisdom. #motivationmonday is my jam. I love tacos, chocolate and more chocolate. Most weekends, you'll find me binge watching something on Netflix or curled up with a good book.

I love life and capturing all of the beautiful things in it. There are few things that bring me as much joy as photography does. My photography style is authentic and driven by emotion. I love smiles, but I love capturing connection and real moments even more.

Let me help you tell your story.
