And all you really want to do is sit down and make your dope work!

Spent hours scouring stock photography libraries just to end up with images that you’ve seen before, that aren’t cohesive, and that don’t display enough diversity
Asked your friend with the DSLR to take photos for you that leave you feeling like they only saw a part of who you are
Felt silly and have given up every attempt at taking your own photos on your phone because this is not what you’re good at and omg how do influencers even DO THIS?!
I help one-of-a-kind creative entrepreneurs just like you show the world the magical secret sauce that makes you irresistible to your ideal clients – without feeling like you’re faking it, performing, or being something you’re not.
Over the past 8 years in business, I too have followed the trends, duplicated what I saw other “successful” people doing, and avoided sharing myself and my story because it felt safer to hide.
I have copied and pasted myself into the same trendy clothing, poses, and styles as everyone else in my industry, hoping to find success by shrinking to fit into what the algorithm has deemed popular at the time.
I have hidden from the camera out of fear that I’m too awkward, too silly to connect with others who are searching for someone like me.
That’s complete B.S., and now I’m here using my experience to help business owners like you to recognize the power within and show up bravely and authentically online.

“Before working together with Laura on brand photography, I had various images that were taken from stock photo websites, random photos from friends, etc. Now, I have an entire library of branded images that I can use on my website, marketing materials, social media, and more. It’s completely elevated my appearance online and makes the BIGGEST impression on clients and my audience because they can always recognise my images anywhere.”
“Before I came into the photo shoot I was very nervous. I have a lot of insecurities about my body but I was ready to try to put that behind me and become more confident. The second I got to Laura’s home studio, I Immediately felt safe. Laura is the most bubbly sweet person and doing something like this with her makes you feel automatically comfortable. Laura is also very good at guiding you. Whether it is putting your hand in a certain place or even just moving your finger differently, she knows how to make you look your best.”
Let me tell you, I used to take the cheesy, boring, forgettable laughing-at-your-laptop images, with clothing that was way too fancy for the context and props in the shot that made no sense (really? you’d be wearing high heels while working at the computer? suuuuuure…)
It didn’t take long for me to realize that as a business owner (or a person in general), assimilation is not the goal; the goal is to be seen for what makes you different.
No one works quite like you, and together we can show the world just what makes you different from the rest.
