I'm Laurel, a lover of imperfect people and authentic art.

Storytelling is a huge part of my identity. I used to take my mom's camera in middle school and take pictures of leaves in the backyard... and somewhere along the way, that turned into taking headshots for friends during school, then working as a dude ranch photographer in Montana... and now I'm in New York working full-time as a published photographer in the broadway community.


At the core of my work, I want to capture who you are, as if no one was watching. Ultimately, the goal is to tell as many people's stories in as many places as possible; I'm ready to see the world and meet everyone in it. I also love getting to know my clients and being able to call them friends, so I hope you're ready for some fun while we shoot :)

If I'm not behind the camera, you'll find me producing new work, getting overly excited about plants, or sippin' on a big glass of Pinot Noir.

I'm New York City based, but will travel anywhere you need (bonus points if it's Virginia, Montana, or the OBX). Check out my portfolio, or get in touch! I can't wait to hear more about your story.
