As long as I can remember, I've openly joked about my insanely uncanny ability to be as awkward and unphotogenic as they come. Although the humor helped, there was also tremendous pain wrapped in never seeing an accurate representation of what I wanted to put out into the world. Nervous, I told Laura it was going to be an insurmountable task to take a quality photo of me, given my previous experience with the camera. Laura is a person, not a camera. My apprehension melted as we engaged. The camera was there, but Laura was seeing me. Laura beautifully captured the essence of my humanity. Tears of joy were shed when she showed me not one, but dozens of photos, all of me that I genuinely felt comfortable for all the world to see. This was no small feat, as I had assumed for years that I was unpresentable. The experience is most accurately described as transformative. A truly healing experience that I recommend to anyone whose light just needs a little illumination.

Laura is a unicorn, absolutely magical when it comes to her soulful photography. Usually, I hate any photos of myself yet Laura was able to capture who I am in a photo, and I feel good about using these in my social media presence. Thank you, Laura!

Laura was helpful, kind, and professional from start to finish. My wedding was a two-day event with an outdoor ceremony and a huge dance ball reception with live music. But she moved seamlessly from location to location, always with an artist's eye for unique shots. She was friendly and worked well with my guests and the other vendors. Her pictures were (are) beautiful and captured so many perfect moments. I also appreciate how willing she was to help me choose shots and settings for the wedding albums. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone with an event they want to fondly remember.

I wanted a photo of me that conveyed vibrant aliveness. As Laura conducted the photoshoot, she was radiating vibrant aliveness, which pulled it out of me. She captured perhaps the best shot of me ever taken. Yes, it's important to have photographic skills, and her skills are top quality, but in addition to that, a photographer has got to have really good energy. And Laura has that! You'll be delighted with the results when you work with her.

It takes a special photographer to get a picture worth a thousand words. It has to tell the story in that one frame better than any article or additional submission could. With each frame, Laura Jaye embodies a story that is uplifting and interesting and composed in a unique and clever way. Her work is always beautiful to behold, and it lingers in the memory.

I had such an amazing time working with Laura

After having been laid off and beginning a new career search, I wanted professional pictures for my online work profile. Laura connected with me on such a heartfelt level about the type of work I wanted to do and the intent of my pictures. I never really thought of photography with intent before. Laura has joyful, vibrant energy, and wisdom. It was a morning shoot and I'm not a morning person. I shared something with her about feeling kind of blah, kind of tired, and also that I’m not a very photogenic person. Laura had me do a few silly poses to loosen up, she had me laughing and relaxed in no time.
As she shot the pictures she began to ask me about the kind of work I wanted to do and told me to think about the specific job I wanted, to think about myself living my life as if I had already had it. But not just about working, but also about living with joy and purpose and bringing that all together. I loved the results, the pictures are beautiful. And you know what? I did get that job I was thinking about during those pictures and my life is pretty great too! Not saying she’s magic or anything, but maybe...
