Hi, I'm Laura, and I live in New Orleans, Louisiana.

I was born and raised in Louisiana, and since a young age I have enjoyed documenting my surroundings.

I easily became captivated by the spirit of New Orleans while formally studying photography and printmaking in the city. This led to a fascination with capturing the charismatic and magical details found in the city's colorful, one-of-a-kind neighborhoods.
