Find creative confidence through the secrets of storytelling.
‘This was a wonderful course. Laura has put a lot of thought and care into each lesson. She writes beautifully about storytelling and stepping into your own story. I throughly enjoyed seeing behind the scenes of her wonderful photos and learning how to improve my own techniques. Little Stories of My Life challenged and inspired me; it changed the way I approach taking photos and sharing my own story.’ - Alexandra
Do you want to capture moments and memories but struggle to make time within the whirlwind of daily life?
Do you wish that you could reflect the beauty of the everyday in your images, and write captions that will draw people in?
Do you ever feel intimidated by perfection on social media, or wonder whether your own story is worth telling?
Little Stories of My Life is a 5 week E-course that will nurture your creativity and confidence, teaching you my secrets of storytelling with words and pictures, showing you how to find the magic in the everyday and how to harness the power of your own small stories.
Learn to tell your story in your own way, with meaningful words and soulful images, and find the courage to step into the frame. Live, love and record the stories of your life and share your truth, whether you tell your stories online, to family, or treasure them just for yourself.
I’ve poured my heart into this course and distilled into five heartfelt weeks everything that I’ve learned from my years of creative work. I’d like to take you by the hand and lead you from uncertainty to creative confidence, giving you the tools that you need to capture the world around you: to see the beauty of simple moments, to produce wholehearted words and narrative images, to tell your story and connect with others telling theirs.
When my son was a baby, I picked up my camera and a notebook and began a learning journey that took me from feeling lost and isolated, convinced that I had nothing to say or share, to living a fulfilling creative life that I love. I truly believe that everything I’ve achieved came from finding the confidence to realise that my story was worth sharing and that my voice was relevant. My transformation all began with my story, and now I want to help you to tell and believe in your story.

'The Little Stories of My Life E-course really made the experience of taking photos and sharing them online a far more joyful thing than the stressful, comparison-laden trap I'd fallen into with Instagram...

It was the perfect mix of beautiful images, technical things to learn and put into practice and inspiring storytellers. I couldn't recommend the course enough.' -Verity
