Hi, my name is Laura and I take pictures of amazing people and businesses. I create authentic, beautiful images that tell a story. My work is most often seen on websites and social media, in magazines, annual reports, and in homes on walls.

Your photos are all about you: what you care about, what you're known for, and what you offer so that people can clearly understand what you do. My job is to capture you in the way you want to be portrayed.
Make your request. Tell me what you're doing and what you need. Be as specific or as vague as you wish and I will do the rest.
Tell me your idea. This could be as simple or complex. What do you want to convey to your audience? I promise to capture the qualities you care about.
The solution is simple: capture your brilliance. Show the world what you do. Authentically stand out from the rest.
Since starting my career, I have completed over 1000 photo shoots. Some of my fabulous clients include the University of Adelaide, University of Melbourne, The Australian Research Council, The Special Olympics, The Centre of Excellence in Particle Physics, The Government of South Australia, Fairfax Media, lululemon athletica, Yasodhara Ashram and many more. My work has been featured on the cover of Sweet magazine and in the pages of Australian Yoga Journal, Yoga Life Magazine, Fleurieu Living Magazine and many more.
I love to observe my surroundings and share what I see with others. I am always thinking in terms of images and projects. I love capturing intelligent images that interupt, or align with, people's perceptions of the world or how they perceive themselves.
Coffee is a great place to start. We can begin by discussing your goals, ideas and your aspirations. I will show you more examples of my work related specifically to what you need. This is an optional part of the process gives me a sense of who you are and what you need from me. When you work with me know that anything is possible.
My all-time favourite hobby in the world is skiing, and apart from family and friends it's what I miss the most about Canada. I love the outdoors; hiking in the Adelaide Hills, walking along the beach (South Australia has some incredible beaches) or spending a day in one of the wine regions. I like a good game of chess, knitting Vogue, practing drawing and painting, playing the clarinet and teaching yoga and Pilates.
Planning an upcoming conference or special event? I know you need to capture your people looking their best and I can do that for you. These images will appear in the media, online, in the annual report, and viewed by the board and your future clients. I will also capture all the important highlights and eye-catching details that will tell the story of a successful event and make those who didn't attend, wish they had.
Inspire your people! Show them who you are and what you're up to. You are an amazing human being and with the right photographer (me) I will capture your brilliance. I create a photo story for your website or blog that builds a relatedness people can trust. These photos will clearly convey the qualities that make you unique and allow people to 'get' what you do. I fully support you every step of the way and ensure you are well prepared for your shoot. This package is tailored for your specific needs. Professional styling available.
When I photograph a wedding, I capture the love and joy present on your special day. Candid moments taken in a documentary style with the intention of capturing your wedding in the most beautiful, authentic, and natural way. Not embarassing or emposing. I photograph REAL moments that DO occur and I go unnoticed in the process. I will not suggest a cheezy set up scene like groomsmen pretending to run to the church or being chased by Godzilla. I will only shoot this if it actually happens. Formal family portraits included.
Did you know that a selfie from a phone actually distorts your facial features? You need a proper photo taken by an experienced professional photographer who can capture your best side. This shoot is customised for each individual. Come to my studio in Bowden or meet me on location. Professional hair, makeup and wardrobe styling and group rates available
Laura has an amazing ability to see beauty in the everyday. Working with her has been a great experience. From the very beginning she has been professional, friendly and open to all ideas presented. I would highly recommend Laura to anyone looking to capture the pure essence of their business or lifestyle.
I'm so happy with my photos, they are a blessing and a joy. I'm so very happy you are sharing your unique gift with us all

I love my photos! They're exactly what I wanted for my website and social media
