An Inspirational Note From "Image Photography" by Laurie

"Dear Readers,

I am writing to you all to give you a little bit about me, Laurie, and why I started Image Photography . I am an art major with a knack for drawing. I have always liked doing pictures because it's like telling a story without words. I think my favorite thing about the photo industry is that there's always something new to look forward to there's always something new you can try. It lets me explore my artistic side.

My goal is to be able to travel more and worry less. I want to focus more on maternity and newborn shoots. Because I'm a mother of 4 kids and a grandmother of 2 boys, I have a deep empathy for and interest in mothers and their babies. I donate my time to those who have lost a child or mothered a premie. I shoot them free of charge. I ,myself, lost two babies to SIDS and can understand their pain.
This served as more inspiration for me shooting babies in the NICU was the fact that I lost my own children .

On the side,I do a bartending and waitressing in addition to my freelancing with visual designing and photography. While raising 3 teen daughters and one son, I started my business about 5 years ago and I never looked back! I remeber those day of trying to get good photos of my kids and the heck that i had to endure! How happy I am to look forward to many more experiences and memories doing what I love. My heart goes out to all of the mothers around the world and their families <3

Living My Best Life Tour: Studying At Harvard, Winning Awards and Walking The Runway!

  Hello all! Thank you so much for returning to my blog and reading this post. I have so much to tell you all because the last few months have been CRAZY! I'm not even sure where to start. I guess I'll begin with the awards that I have been so blessed to receive within the last two weeks. I have NEVER in my entire career of almost a decade managed to take home five awards in such a small time frame! I received two Virtual Visionary awards for Entrepreneurship & Community Service, two awards given by the Sara Williams Scholarship Fund with proceeds benefitting research at St. Jude Children's Hospital, and a Service Leadership award from the pageant system that I represent as their current Miss World, the Miss & Mrs. America Nation Organization ! It was so much fun to have the honor of strutting the runway at their Nationals Fashion Show a couple of weeks ago alongside my amazing sister queens! Prior to this, I hadn't modeled in a fashion show since I was a Fashio

38 Underrepresented World Wide Talents That You Need to Know!

In a world where so many great entrepreneurs and artists can become famous at the act of one viral video online, it's easy to get lost in the misconception that with social media's "power," anybody who is talented is already known. After all, it isn't as difficult to gain exposure and "get big" as it was 20 years ago before the Internet's Massive Media takeover, right? Partially yes, however, social media also makes the market 10x as saturated as it was 20 years ago. Thus, are you really that much further ahead if all of your competition has the means to one-up you, free of cost and inconvenience, just by posting to their online accounts? It's a lot to think about. That is why we here at The Fresh Faces Project work hard to make sure that the artists and entrepreneurs and do-gooders who are underrepresented and don't get the fame and acknowledgment that their talents merit are given a platform. That platform is us. When creating thi

Living My Best Life Tour: Chicago Fashion Week 2021 + BTW, I Have A New Pageant Title

It's been a while! Throughout my relentless grind to meet my goals for 2021, I haven't had the time to blog on my OG website, Fashion Thunderclap. However, I have a few very cool things to share with my beloved readers here that prompted me to MAKE TIME and publish a long-overdue article here. The main thing I want to discuss today is how AMAZING my experience was at Chicago Fashion Week 2021 presented by Fashion Bar ! I was so happy to be invited as a media guest for the 5th year in a row! My love and gratitude goes out to the organization and its Founder, the esteemed Tony Long for always extending the invitation and producing some of the best fashion shows around! As you can see in the photos, I have on a new sash. I was crowned Miss USA Universe Tourism 2021 in January and have pledged to do as I did in my reign as Miss World America Nation and make a difference, big or small, in all seven continents of the world, especially supporting those in line with my platform of
