Laura is a Colorado native who has spent a lot of time on the east and west coasts. She received her education at the Rhode Island School of Design, Colorado Art Institute, and other art institutions. Laura's background also includes spiritual/intuitive counseling, and Asui/Angel Reiki - energy healing. She is informed about the effects of trauma and the healing process. For this reason, healing support is a huge component of her professional reach.
As a professional photographer, Laura works with individuals in the studio to connect with a positive perception of self, while capturing images that represent the beautiful and diverse facets of their personality and character. She believes that every person has inherent beauty and strength which can be captured in a portrait. Laura understands inherently that our most challenging life situations can become a source of compassion, courage, strength, and hope for others.
Laura can connect with others on a humanistic and compassionate level and strives to create a space for her clients that is safe, open, relaxed, and fun. Clients often describe sessions with her as 'therapeutic'. Helping others heal and see themselves in a positive light operates at the foundation of all her practices, and this can definitely be felt in a photography/video session.
