I am a walking, talking contradiction. I am a confident woman plagued by self-doubt. I am a brave adventurer who is afraid of new things. I am a smiling, happy person who does battle with Depression. I am a soft, gentle soul that has too much anger inside. I am so easy to please but never really satisfied. I could go on and on like this forever….
I’m Laurie, and I am in love with photography. Some might even say I’m a little obsessed! I love losing myself in it. It lets me disappear into my own little world for a while, and, along with Photoshop, it lets me attempt to express myself. Sometimes the best way I know how to do that is by doing self-portraits. Other times, I feel a landscape or a flower can speak very loudly. And I also love shooting people and coming up with unique ways to show their personal beauty. I know that I’ve definitely come to see the world in a whole new way since taking up photography…and I appreciate and love nature more than ever.
It took me a long time to find my true passion…and I found it only after losing something else….but this is it.
I graduated from the New York Institute of Photography. I also took a Photoshop class and loved it!!
I appreciate you taking the time to check out my work, and I look forward to seeing all of yours!
