Are you ready to record your story in bold and beautiful photographs?

Hi I am Laura, I am a portrait photographer based in London, England, WELCOME!

I would love to record your story. 

When was the last time you were photographed professionally? 

The memories we create, the little stories we tell ourselves, are the stories of our lives. They have value and purpose. 

All the people I photograph, are normal people like you and me. I believe we can all be on the cover of magazines. 

Are you ready to be on the front cover of your story?

MY PORTFOLIO

How would you like to be photographed? Who would you like to be photographed with?

How would you like to desing your photoshoot session?

To view the work I create, please take a look at my portfolio.

What to expect?

I would love to give you an idea of how my services work, from the moment you pick up the phone or drop me a message, to the shoot day and what happens after.

Please see how a session with me works.

I love Mediterranean food, french crepes (galettes) and a glass of proseco in a summer’s evening. We go on holidays to the South of Albania, my home country every year for a month, soaking in the sun and the salty waters of the Ionian Sea.

Through my work I also support a number of charities with fundraising events I run regularly where I offer photography in exchange of contributions.

Publications and Awards

I was so happy to have one of my photos published on Vogue Italia Online in May 2020. I took this photo in a poppy field in Guilford; such a beautiful place! There have been a few more added to my Vogue portfolio this year, photos taken in Wales and in Seven Sisters Cliffs.

I was also delighted to win two Bronze Awards from the Portrait Masters International Awards, an assesment of high professional standards in November 2021.

The winning images are from a photoshoot with a client from my 40 over 40 campaing. As a busy mum and professional, it was a special experience to be able to take these portratis that celebrate her for who she is today.
