Who are we?
We are Laura, Patrick and Josephine Skellie (she is the cute little girl you see above ;)) I, am Laura - I usually will usually be the one you talk to and work with if you need something. However as a husband and wife team, we both have our duties. Mine are visible and his are more behind the scenes...
Photography is one of my greatest loves, but along side that is being a mother, a wife, dog wrangler, kitty cuddles, chicken whisperer, a sister, daughter, multi-medium artist, amazing public speaker, introverted extrovert, infertility advocate, and a construction superintendent. Yes, you read that correctly. My day job involves putting on a hard hat and boots and running a job site. I have a Masters of Architecture and after about 8 years doing that I realized I loved construction....so I made a change. I love being in that roll during the day, and love being able to create amazing art while getting to play and entertain families in the evenings and on weekends.
We have recently added "farm owners" to our lives as well - and run a little chicken farm where we get farm fresh eggs from our 50+ flock! <3
I was born and raised in Ypsilanti Michigan and moved to Pelham Alabama in 2012 just 6 months after meeting Patrick! Patrick was born and raised in Alabama, where he went to the University of Alabama. He is in sales and marketing and enjoys being around people and entertaining with his humor!
Thankfully, moving to Alabama worked in my favor and we were married in 2014. After 4 years of infertility we conceived our daughter Josephine via IVF. A short 10 months after she was born (and after I called Alabama home for 7 years!), we decided our life was not crazy enough and moved to Savannah Georgia where we currently reside.
My husband, daughter and our 3 beagle mixes are quite the handful but I live for challenges and being able to take chaos and make something beautiful with it....it is exhausting at times, especially now that we just relocated! I do not take enough time for me and our family, as I usually am giving to everyone else - but moving to Savannah we decided to re-brand and make some changes to our business plan in order to dedicate time to family!
We cannot wait to meet you, whether you are in town for a short time and need photos, vacation here all the time and want to relive your moments, a photographer looking to work with us, or a client who calls Savannah home...we never meet a stranger, and are fast friends with those in the industry as well as our clients. It is what stands us apart. We thrive on community over competition, and being transparent with our clients.
