Laura has been preparing her whole life to become a photographer, she just did not know it. Long road trips to explore the wild places of the United States were normal in her family. They drove cross-country and back before she was even in kindergarten and she had been to more than half of the states before high school was over. All of these trips inspired in Laura a love of nature and the things that live there. A family trait was bringing a camera along and eventually her father gave her one of his cameras to use. This was probably to stop her from running off with his. She has had a camera of some type ever since.
In college, Laura found herself in Colorado, whose National Parks could inspire anyone to becoming a photographer. While she was there, she furthered her love of nature by picking up a degree in Wildlife Biology and first met Jason. Suddenly, there was a whole lot more family and photographers in her life. Their honeymoon was the inspiration for the purchase of her first digital camera.
From Colorado, the two them moved around the whole country and Laura introduced Jason to the wonder that is road trips. They managed two cross-country moves that were barely disguised photography road trips. Somewhere in there, she managed to organize giving Jason the family’s first DSLR. Little did she know how that would change things. Only a year later, and a lot like before, Jason had to get her a DSLR of her own to keep custody of his own.
Now with Jason and Saundra there to help her learn, Laura has left behind a hobby and found a passion. She has found a way to show others all the wonderful things she has seen on her travels and express her love for the things in nature. Recently, she has discovered macro photography and a whole new tiny world to explore.
