About

about wicked witch west photoshoot

HI! I’m Laura and here are a few things about me..

  • Navy Veteran
  • Horror Fanatic (but not torture or gore horror)
  • Wears black even in the summer
  • Loves dogs

I am from Baltimore, MD but now live in Parsippany, NJ.

I’ve been a photographer for many, many years and have photographed many genres of photography. I’ve photographed births, military events and portraits, children, newborns, birthday parties, and other work.

Why Horror?

I have always loved horror and supernatural movies and TV shows since I was a child and in 2015 I thought, “man I want to shake up my portfolio”. I have amazing clients so I continued to offer them the type of photography they loved and built another body of personal work. InΒ 2018 I decided to pursue that more full time when I found the Enlightened Marketplace and started offering some of my prints out of there. My studio is now out of the same location.

In 2017 and 2018 I won the Best Of.. for Morris | Essex Health and Life Magazine.

Today we have a team of makeup artists in the studio that offers body painting, and SFX makeup.

When you come to the studio expect to laugh, have snacks, listen to some great music and have a great session. If this sounds like fun then CONTACT me today to set up a free consultation to tour the studio, meet the people, and drink some coffee.Β  All sessions are done by appointment but if you stop in I might be there.

We want to know more about you so prepare to let us know all about how you want to be photographed, the significance behind the session, and just cool stories in general.

Ready to book?? Click the contact in the menu and send me a message. I will respond within 24 hours.

  • Fine Art Easter sessions with my popular rabbit mask. We do Easter a bit differently around these parts. Why look like everyone else? That's boring. Don't be boring.

  • 🀑🀑 CLOWN🀑🀑 Look, I don't intimidate easily. Or really at all so if you feel threatened by my presence, get over it. I'm not competing with you or anyone else. I compete with myself and myself only.

  • So I love clowns but masks creep me out honestly. Its one of the few things that creeps me out. Both of these are face paints. No masks used this time. What creeps you out?
