AS SEEN IN

 

Hi, I’m Laura!

I believe that leading an artful career and life makes the day to day far more enjoyable; and I have three main areas of focus that I’m passionate about.

I’m a photographer…

Who loves to connect through a camera. Whether shooting commercial or capturing precious family moments, photography makes memories tangible and strengthens an online presence.

I’m a writer…

Who adores getting lost in the poetic prowess of prose. Language is a vehicle for connecting, inspiring, uplifting and moving others. It holds so much possibility and is a wonder to work in.

I’m a dreamer…

Who believes that pretty much anything is possible. This is why I love brand building and working with people who run their own businesses, because they’re building their life on their own terms.

 

I’M HERE TO HELP WITH THE CREATIVE HEAVY LIFITING

 


A few perks of working with me

 

You’ll discover the magic of leading a creative career and life
Yes, magic, that’s the word I use to describe it. Does pursuing a creative life have challenges, ups and downs? Absolutely! But for those who are daring enough to shift their perspective to see possibility wherever they go, real world magic ensues. I can show you how to harness it!

 

You’ll uncover your unique super power
Because you totally have one! There is something about your person, your approach, your perspective that makes you the radiant human being that you are – and together we’ll not only uncover this powerful quality, but we’ll activate throughout your brand to resonate with your target audience.

You’ll understand the power of branding
Do you love the people in your life because of their resume? No. You love them for the way they make you feel. Similarly, well-built brands become beloved because they are more than nice design put together in a technically sound way. Beloved brands have an emotional intelligence that connects.

 

You’ll get more confidence
If you’re feeling unsure, confused and foggy in your business, chances are it stems from a lack of clarity. Working together we’ll focus your brand, sharpen your messaging and get to the heart of your work. You’ll get clear on your mission, approach and activation; and more confident as a result.

  • Laura was an absolute pleasure to work with. It was my first shoot, and I was super nervous and she made me feel so comfortable and at ease. She was patient and kind, which allowed me to embrace and have fun with the process. She puts her own creative and artistic flare on the project, which allowed it to be professional yet unique. She was able to capture exactly what I was looking for. Thank you so much Laura for the beautiful experience!

  • We spent a long time searching for a photographer who is creative and talented. After having the opportunity to meet with Laura, it was clear how professional she is in her work ethics and the incredible broad range of skill sets she has.

    In addition to branding photography we acquired Laura’s services for our company’s branding profile. It was one of the best decisions that we made! Laura was very easy to communicate with and fully understood the company’s vision. Her branding consultation exceeded our expectations. Her presence as a team member really brings out the fun aspect of work.

    Laura is friendly, helpful, professional, punctual, and fun every step of the way. Thank you Laura for being awesome and your continued effort for our company.

  • Working with Laura really helped to alleviate some of the stress and anxiety I felt about rebranding and relaunching my site. When I first met with Laura, I had so many ideas, but I didn’t have the tools that I needed to execute my vision. As a fulltime entrepreneur, running two businesses, I felt as though I was drowning trying to bring all of my ideas together. I reach out to Laura in the nick of time to help refocus my goals, ideas, and energies. Laura worked tirelessly to assist me with finding my brand’s true identity. From choosing a new name, to logo design, mapping out revenue streams, and the overall attitude of the brand, Laura walked me through each stage providing her expertise along the way. I absolutely enjoyed my experience working with Laura and Gooseberry Studios. She’s knowledgeable, professional and most importantly compassionate. What truly impressed me about Laura, was her ability to really listen to my story and help me bring it to life in my brand!

  • I had an amazing time working with Laura on my brands recent fashion shoot. Her professionalism is unlike any other – prompt with responses, super creative and extremely organized! I did not think I would ever come across a photographer as organized as I am, haha! What I really liked about Laura is her friendly attitude. She was super easy to work with and really helped me with planning our shoot before the big day. I keep getting compliments from everyone on how stunning my pictures are and I owe that all to you Laura. Thanks again for making my vision come alive. I cannot wait to book you again for my future projects!

    PRISCILLA B | OWNER, STYLE ME ANKARA
  • I absolutely enjoyed every single minute of my photo shoot with Laura. We shared a lot of laughs. She is an incredibly talented photographer and was able to capture my brand perfectly through the photos. If you’re a small business owner looking to do some branding photography, I highly recommend working with her!

  • Working with Laura on getting my brand and business up and running really took the stress and anxiety out of the picture. Having been a stay-at-home mom for the past several years literally left me feeling paralyzed about how I was going to begin on the social media, blog writing, and content creating journey. I reached out to Laura to find out how she could help get me started and she immediately put my mind at ease by explaining how we would work together. We created a timeline right away that was super organized with weekly tasks and as each week went by I was amazed at how much we were accomplishing together. Also, the weekly tasks really kept me accountable. Sometimes as an entrepreneur it’s easy to let things go or not stay accountable to yourself, so working with Laura forced me to meet timelines. Luckily, she was just flexible enough for when life with three young kids got in the way. I loved working with Laura and would recommend her to anyone who needs help getting started with branding and social media. Another amazing quality about Laura is that she is an extremely talented photographer and since that is totally not my thing – it is really convenient for all my branding needs!
