Looking for a Professional Portrait Photographer in London?

You are in the right place. My goal with each session is to bring your magic: business, brand, services and personality to life with creative, engaging professional photography.

Let's discuss what you need

Are you feeling overwhelmed?

  • Not sure where to start and worried about results?
  • Has it has been a long time since the last time you worked with a professional photographer?

Every client is unique and each session is tailored to you.

  1. We work together in a positive and stretching experience – positive as I will support, guide and encourage you.
  2. Stretching – because most people feel a little uncomfortable in front of the camera.
  3. Together we create photographs you had always imagined – sometimes you have a vision in mind & need some help, my help to bring it to life.

Photography for the website & social media: Hema Desai, London

I don’t really like my photo being taken so Laura was fantastic and making me feel at ease. Laura was very organised and made me comfortable from the beginning. She met with me over zoom to talk through the photo shoot and give me styling ideas. I highly recommend Laura and her company.

Photography for the brand & social media: Stephanie Martens Damalis, London

I always feel I never look like my normal self in a professional picture. As a professional photographer Laura made me feel remarkably comfortable, she had suggestions and ideas for me and managed to capture natural but elegant photos of me that actually look like me.

Photography for the brand: Margaret Reiser, London

Laura made me feel incredibly comfortable from the moment I met her. She is a fabulously talented photographer. I absolutely love my images!”

Photography for team & business: Tony O'Flaherty, London

    I gave AI a go - and nothing ticked all the boxes. I then went ahead and booked a professional headshot shooting with Laura and had a wonderful time, with great results. Laura took her time to walk me through the process and never rushed me, made me feel very welcome and her recommendations confident during the session. Laura works professionally and the results were exactly what I was looking for, with a swift turnaround time on edits. I highly recommend Laura if you need new professional images for work or similar.

    Thank you Laura for the excellent headshots. Like so many, I put off doing a photo shoot. Laura did a great job of helping me get prepared and setting up the poses. The photos have transformed all my online business profiles, both presenting a professional looking me and enabling me to feel more confident. Thank you!

    I needed some headshots and content photos for my new website and was dreading the photo shoot as I dislike posing for a camera. I always feel I never look like my normal self in a professional picture. Laura made me feel remarkably comfortable, had suggestions and ideas for me and managed to capture natural but elegant photos of me that actually look like me. She was amazing. I highly recommend her!

    All eight of our family members enjoyed the experience and were delighted with the results. The best family photos we have ever had. Laura orchestrated the event with great imagination and flexibility and helped everyone to stay relaxed and involved.

    I've been avoiding corporate headshots for most of my career, but finally ended up in a position where I couldn't put them off any longer. Laura was absolutely brilliant throughout the initial enquiry, photoshoot and post-shoot editing. She put me at ease while she took the photos, and clearly knew exactly what she was doing with poses, lighting and angles. The end results were brilliant, and I could not be happier with the finished product. I will 100% be using her again for future photography needs! Highly recommend.

    I had a wonderful experience with Laura for my professional headshot. From the moment I received a (very quick) response to my initial enquiry email, to when I received my gallery of photos, Laura was responsive to my photo requirements, professional and friendly. The shoot made me feel at ease. I'm usually very awkward in front of a camera, and Laura clearly understands how to get the perfect shot for those who may be camera shy! The gallery of photos were fabulous. Overall, I am really impressed and can't wait to use my photo to highlight my work. Highly recommend!
