Hi, I'm Laura! 


I'm a Nashville based photographer focused on photographing as much color as I can find.  My background is in photojournalism, red carpet events, and celebrity portraiture For the last 4 years, I’ve been focused on commercial photography and working with marketing departments to help bring their ideas to life.

Laura has always made all of our photography dreams come true. Whether it be in our NYC studio or in the home studio she has created, the quality and efficiency is undeniable.

With everything a bit upside down right now due to the Coronavirus, Laura has truly been a lifesaver. She's always up for the challenge and always goes above and beyond to make sure we're happy at the end of the day.

It’s always a bit nerve-racking to put complete faith and trust in someone to represent your brand. I’ve worked with Laura on multiple remote projects where she’s gone above and beyond, from conceptualization to final product. She asks the right questions and responds well to feedback, exemplifying the type of photographer we’d hire over and over again.

Like anyone else who works at a homeless shelter,  I see firsthand how the stigma of addiction, mental health, and homelessness affect our guests. Working with someone new can always spike that anxiety, but when I saw Laura meet our guests where they are and talk with them, befriend them, and ease their anxieties around their "modeling" abilities - my hesitations melted away.
