hello again

JOLIET-9407

This year has been epic. Which is one way of explaining why I haven’t updated this place for a while. My business has taken off, I’m shooting all the time, I’m having to say no to jobs, something I thought would never happen. I’m so grateful. I’m getting to travel, I’m working with really talented people, I have a rep! And also I am tired. And in the throes of expanding my business and figuring out what I want the next chapter to look like.

I just got back from a trip down to my dad’s house in baja. The trip helped me slow down and pull focus on what makes me feel good, not just what makes me efficient. And I miss sharing bits about my life here. So many of you have been with me since I was only a blogger, when I booked my first New York Times job and then when I started really making a living as a photographer.

This is also the only place (well, besides instagram) that I have total control over my images and have the freedom to share outtakes, fun moments, mistakes etc. It’s also a place where I can rest for a second and be thoughtful. So I’m going to post a little more often. I want to share some of the things I’ve done this year: places I’ve gone, things I’ve shot. I’m proud of how far I’ve come and want to make sure I acknowledge that journey for myself instead of getting wrapped up too badly in the day to day anxieties and unknowns.

But if you don’t hear from me, you can always check my instagram feed.

    Hi, Laure–I just wanted to say that your photography is really lovely! I saw your photos in the KCET Artbound article re: “Competing Utopias” and thought I’d search for your website and I’m glad I did. I’m studying photography right now and I hope I can become a pro like you someday :)
