My name is Laura and I wish nothing more than to create amazing images for those who don't want to be "normal". The world needs more entrepreneurs like you and I want to show the world exactly who you are! There are so many of us who who don't fit a standard mold that society seems to expect. We are the quirky ones, the ones with bright hair, the ones who stand up for what we believe in and the ones who want to make the world a more diverse place. I want to help you stand out in your industry and for your images to shout to your customers, "Hey, I'm here and I can do amazing things for you!".
I started my photography journey in 2006 taking photographs of my best friend in a rock band at college. I had a little point and click camera that had no option to turn off the flash so I was always having to be creative to get the images how I saw them. I loved capturing those moments that you could blink and miss and showing an image to someone who hadn't been there and they'd feel the atmosphere immediately. I remember the moment I realised I needed a more advanced camera very clearly; I was at a performance the stage crew turned on a smoke machine which rose eerily around the band and the images came out looking like a white cloud with legs even though in reality there was a mysterious and theatrical feeling on stage. I wanted my photos to tell THAT story, to feel the mystery and theatrics, to tell a story about the band even though you couldn't hear the music.
I decided to invest in the cheapest Nikon DSLR camera I could find on a very popular shopping website named after a South American river. Not long after it arrived photography became a part of who I am and what I was known for. 16 years later that passion is still as strong and I've been fortunate to turn it into my career. Still to this day creating images is the first thing I think about in the morning and the last thing I think about at night!
After years of photographing families and babies I realised that my very first reason for starting photography was capturing the story of those in the image. Making the audience FEEL what I feel when I'm in the room with that person and the energy they resonate. This is why my business naturally gravitated to personal branding for entrepreneurs and businesses who don't always sit in the box labelled "Normal".
If you feel like you resonate with what I love to achieve with my photographs please do get in contact, I would love to hear from you and learn about what you do!
