My name is Laurie and I am a freelance photographer and film maker living in Plymouth, Devon. I am a 40 year old tired mummy of three crazy, but gorgeous boys.
I studying photography at Plymouth College of Art and Design, and then went on to Loughborough University and expanded my studies to 3D Design.
I have always been super creative and I love anything that allows me to be creative. Cake Making, Arts and Crafts, Lego, building sandcastles, making films with the kids, making halloween outfits, theatre, singing, dancing, decorating the house... I love it all.
I was born in Leicestershire and lived there until I was 18 when I moved to the south west and worked as a children's entertainer and singer on holiday parks for a few years, and then I met Dave (my husband) at decided to go back to university to study photography in 2009.
Fast forward 14 years and here I am still loving photography.
As a family, we love spending time making films and playing with stop frame animation. Whether we are doing them to capturing everyday memories, part of the kids 'Show and Tell' for school, or just something to do on a rainy day, its something we all like to get involved with.
Musical theatre is a huge passion of mine, so when I am not on stage myself, I am often found in the theatre or rehearsal rooms taking photos for local amateur theatre companies. Here are some of my favourite photos from Plymouth Theatre Company, Plymouth Gilbert and Sullivan, Dance Fusion and No Walls Creative Arts
DOORSTEP PORTRAITS – LOCKDOWN 2020
As part of my one daily exercise during lockdown, I took part in a personal project. I offered doorstep portraits to families in my local area in return for donations to Plymouth Hospital Charity. Together the families raised over £1000 from my doorstep portraits. Thank you to everyone that took part.
