Family and maternity photographs are so special as they help us capture the fleeing time. They remind us of when we were young, when our children were just born or when they were a little bit older. All these memorable milestones captured in beautiful photographs live for ever.
Spending time with you to capture these unique memories is what I love to do.
Having professional photos taken for your website, LinkedIn, to be used in a Magazine or generally on social media, is now more important than ever. Having strong professional portraits helps you keep ahead of the rest in a very competitive world.
If you would like to work with me, please visit my Book a session page for the details of the sessions. I am available to shoot on location (within one hour distance away), at your home or in my studio.
How did Laura Shimili Mears photography come about?
Laura Shimili Mears Photography was born at the beginning of this year as I wanted to take things further. I love working with local families, local businesses, start-ups and other professionals in around the area where I live, in South West London but also in central London.
I am myself mum to two boys, Edward (6) and Elliot (3) and am married to Roger who I met in Albania, my home country. We have lived in South West London since 2008. My interest in photography started 15 years ago during my student years in Paris. I have since then practiced and learnt a lot and have been developing Laura Shimili Mears Photography further.
Apart from photography I have many other interests and activities that are dear to me. I am part of Help Them Grow, an initiative we have set up with 5 other Albanian mums in London. We collect second hand toys and books and send them to Albanian state nurseries. We have helped 1550 children so far and continue to help more.
I support whenever I can initiatives that help refugees affected by the recent war in Syria and I follow and support Samara’s Aid Appeal in particular.
