Name: Laura Jennings

Business Name: Laura Jennings Photography, LLC

Business Description:  I am a full time wedding and family sunset photographer living the dream in sunny Northwest Florida!  I specialize in sunset family and destination weddings along the coast of our beautiful beaches!

How long have owned your business: I have been a photographer for 8 years now, wow!

How many kids do you have: I am blessed enough to be the Momma to 3 beautiful kiddos.  Alexis (16), Connor (8) and Ascher (2).

What’s your daily schedule typically like: Once I get the two kiddos off to school, it’s me and the baby for the day.  We edit, take calls, play at the park, do all the cleaning and shopping, pick up the others from school, edit some more and do homework, dinner, sports practices, sunset sessions and bed!! Our days are jam packed, but they are so untraditional that none of it is dreaded. Each day really is a new adventure!

What’s your best tip for maintaining work/life balance: TRY to set office hours.  When you work from home, it’s really hard.  If there’s work to be done, I REALLY want to get it done, but I try to keep the balance.  I live by the motto that my kids will never be THIS age again.  Each day they are a little bigger, a little more independent and a little closer to being on their own.

Biggest struggle: Feeling like I am able to give 100% at both “jobs”- photography and as a mother.  It’s hard!

Scariest thing that has happened to you while parenting: Our youngest is almost 2, and every time I take a call, he knows he can get away with anything.  Most recently he pulled a small bookshelf type cabinet on top of himself while I was on the phone.  Super scary!  You take your eyes off them for one second…. taking calls is a balancing act- balancing the phone and the baby!

Where do you see yourself in 10 years: Hopefully still shooting at sunset each night!  I am blessed to call Panama City Beach my home and love what I do.  I really wouldn’t change it for the world.  And that’s what we all want for our children, right?

Favorite place to travel to: The mountains!  This beach girl likes a bit of cold weather, falling leaves, mountain views, hot cocoa and s’mores… in a cabin with no WIFI!
