Laurie is a not-shorter nickname for my legal name, Lauren, but it’s what I go by.  The “B” is for my middle name, Briana.

I fell for photography in my high school dark room.  When I discovered this passion could translate into a real job, I started LBP in 2007, and it slowly grew into the best career I could ask for.

I LOVE this work, my clients, and preserving your moments for a lifetime. I try to focus on what really matters.  Real life is perfect enough. “All in a lifetime,” as my Papa says.

A few things about me, in no particular order:

  • I love love love my red lab Mabel.  She and my husband Tim have my heart.

  • Ice cream and cookies are my favorite.  And my mom’s “buster bar.” And chai.

  • I work out every day lest I be quite crabby (also: see above).

  • I consider myself incredibly lucky to do this job.  Sure, it’s hard work (and self-employment tax is the pits) but this is what I’m meant to do.

  • I’ve heard that childhood tendencies can predict future callings. As a kid, I spent a lot of time watching from the perimeter before joining in, (re-)arranging things, and wanting to know everything the adults were talking about.

  • I remember choosing a duffel bag pattern I thought I’d like when I was older instead of what I liked at the time. I saved things like stickers longer than anyone should. All in an effort to preserve - how fitting for a photographer, right?

  • I’m terrible at telling stories.  I think it’s a family trait haha.  But showing stories, through images, that is where I shine!
