I'm Laurel.

There are so many beautiful things in this world. The way sunlight filters through leaves in the summer; the smell of homemade hot cocoa on a snowy day. The way people look at their loved ones; old, worn, and loved books.

I'm a writer, photographer, and I'm saved by Grace.

I'm always quoting movies and bustin' out awkward dance moves. Most of what I say is a quote from a movie or song, or it's probably going to be punny. Or nerdy. Or all of the above. 

I love people and I love their stories. I look for them, write them down, showcase them through images that will last a lifetime. 

Let's do the world a favor and tell your story, shall we?

As a writer...

I'm a little shy when it comes to sharing my writing. But what's life without breaking out of your comfort zone a little!


When I was in high school I prayed for boldness, and it's been an ongoing prayer ever since. I'm really not a bold or courageous person. But I get to learn from others who are and cultivate boldness in my own life! So that's what I'm doing here. 

I've been scribbling down stories since I could spell words out, and I write in a variety of genres--from lifestyle blogging to fantasy novels to children's books and more. And, speaking of my blog, on it you'll find a mix of photography work, real life talk, faith topics, and excerpts from my bigger works of writing.


If that sounds interesting, I'd love it if you check it out

As a photographer...

The mountains are the staple of Colorado Springs, but I love exploring all around. Whether it's unique buildings and coffee shops in town or traipsing through forests, it's all pretty magical to me. Especially forests. I LOVE forests, they're kind of my jam.


I get asked a lot if I travel and the answer is YES. If you're outside of Colorado Springs (or outside this great state), don't worry. We can make gorgeous photos happen wherever you are! Follow me on Instagram and join the newsletter to hear when I'm on the move, maybe in your area!
