“Our photo shoot was so fun and festive. Laura found the perfect time for the best light in the best location.  She captured the essence of the day and the mood, and she made it easy for me to be myself .” ~ Valarie Grossman, Holistically High Health Coaching



“I'm absolutely thrilled with my new head shot! The location for the shoot was perfect--as was the day.  Laura did her work quickly and efficiently. I appreciated how she made me relax by talking about things dear to me or why I was in business--all of which brought out different expressions that she could capture.  In the end, she made me look ten years younger...without cosmetic surgery!  It's a very professional photo, but it has really captured the "inner me".  Thanks, Laura!”  ~ Gail Valeskie, Owner, Valeskie Voice



“For me the most amazing part of your work is the metaphysical sense of it. When I look at your work- I feel  endless touch of the Universe. It moves  all the worries,problems  behind,and let me think and feel deeper,brings the real values to the surface of my mind and soul.” ~ Marianna Marenitch, Owner Caramella Skin Couture



"Laura is an exceptional talent. She is a terrific technician, but more importantly, she absolutely captures the essence of her subject, whether a landscape or a human. I was ecstatic with her work." ~ Terry Pearce, author, Leading Out Loud.
