Born and raised in the Chicagoland area, Laura spent the majority of her life enmeshed in a hectic corporate environment and raising her family. The independence of her family and retirement from corporate life allowed Laura to return to a youthful passion for world of photography. Her photography is inspired by both the tranquility of nature and by tones and textures of the black and white masters such as Edward Weston, Lewis Hine and Vivian Maier. The power and impact of social documentary photography is of particular interest.
