hi! i’m laurie! welcome to laurie goodman photography.

life messages™

everyone has a story. everyone has a life message. what’s yours? with three books already published in the life messages™ series …  i’m always looking for opportunities to give people a voice.


i would say that photographing women gives me energy. they are my muse. i can relate to them.


my best work comes when I am moved emotionally and therefore, working with people who give back for the greater good are among some of my favourite subjects!

I love taking photos of children as they are our best teachers of living fully in the moment.

family ties

What a joy and a privilege it is to not only capture but participate in feeling the love and connectedness of families.


true friends bring out emotions in us like nobody else can … the giggles, the tears, the sillies.

love what you do

I am extremely passionate about photographing people doing what they love to do because that is where ‘goosebumps’ are born.

baby on the way

oh the anticipation of a new life about to enter the world can be captured in the loving smile of the mom to be caressing her belly.

new arrivals

newborns are miracles reminding us of how fragile, beautiful and precious life truly is.

life is better with you

i love to capture moments in relationships that i myself wish someone would have captured of me with those that make life a joy to live.


hard not to cry thinking of how endearing it is to photograph a granddaughter gripping her grandpa’s hand or the look in the eyes of a couple who have been married for 50 years as they twirl and dance on their anniversary day…

kind words from a few of my clients …

Laurie Goodman has been photographing our family since May 2013 during which time we have grown together through photography, inspiration and friendship! To put it simply…..she is not a point and shoot type of photographer! She has flare, flavour and finesse, which implicitly shows in her work!

Laurie Goodman rocks!  We had a wonderful family photo shoot with this great photographer.  She made us all feel comfortable right away.  On the drive home, our kids chatted about how much fun we all had. The results turned out to be some of our best pictures ever.  Thanks so much Laurie.

The first thing I noticed about you was your warmth….Like most people, I don’t like being photographed, I get nervous, my body feels stiff somehow. But with you, one just feels relaxed….Laurie, you have a knack for capturing the essence of a person. When we least expect it you snap the picture, then another and another. It’s not just a photo shoot; it is an experience.
