memories and moments
"It's so much fun," says Reiger, whose main mermaid clientele is children. "The experience is something they'll always remember. I just love being part of that."
A mother herself, with a 5-year-old daughter and a new baby, Laura Reiger has the
necessary patience and free spirit to interact well with kids of all ages.
And the photographer has recently added even more magic to her repertoire: pirates
and unicorns. She provides the pirate costumes for lakeside shenanigans, and some
families choose to incorporate both pirate and mermaid in their photos.
The unicorn sessions are in the process of development, with a pure-white Welsh
pony named Chloe wearing the unicorn horn and sporting the white-clad youngster
on her back. Laura is currently in the process of adding more horses and ponies to her
stable of unicorns, and will soon have Silver, a miniature pony. As part of the local training venue Sutliff Performance, Laura's equine assistants are calm and well-accustomed
to children.

Capturing and saving the memories
for future generations is a passion...

"I think I'm the only photographer who does photos of the children actually riding
the unicorns," Laura reports.
Laura obviously gravitates to the magical, but that includes charmed reality as well.
One of her favorite things to photograph is new life. The photographer is on call for
births taking place up to an hour and a half from her home.
"It's miraculous; the best," says Reiger. "This is what I'm meant to be doing."
Laura Reiger's 2008 Associate of Art degree in professional photography is being
put to good use, documenting the fleeting and precious moments of life. Capturing
and saving the memories for future generations is a passion of Laura's, whether it be a
human birth or a mythical creature. The beauty of life captured through a lens enchants
Laura Reiger... and her clients. Grandparents are especially charmed when they hired the
photographer to preserve magical memories of their beloved Grands.
Reiger has recently added sparkly and enchanting Glitter Shoots to her repertoire,
and new themes for photo shoots are constantly sparking her creativity.
"I love what I do," says Reiger. "Being able to capture a tiny moment in time, a snapshot of life, is the most amazing job. The look between a father and daughter on her
wedding day. The way a newborn smiles. How siblings play when they think no one
is watching. The pure joy on a one-year-old's face when they get to smash a cake.
Capturing and creating keepsakes for life; that's what being a photographer is all about."
