Hi, I’m Laura and I’m a photographer, writer and editor. I tell stories using words and photographs: on my blog, to my 70k+ Instagram following, for brands, and on the pages of beautiful magazines. I’m also a qualified teacher with a MA in Literature, and I’m here to help you to harness the power of storytelling in your life and creative work.


'I just loved the Seasonal Storytelling Course. It not only made me think more in depth about my photos and words but also made me connect deeper with autumn and all its magic. Thank you so much Laura for this wonderful experience.' - Jane
