Hi there, I'm Laura!

I'm the mastermind behind Creative 18.

Creativity is one of my deepest virtues expressed through photography, ideation, and branding.

After 18 years of corporate marketing with companies such as Nordstrom, Disney and Tommy Hilfiger, I decided to venture off on my own and use my skills to help others!

And so...Creative 18 was born!

Today, I am able to blend my marketing knowledge and creative eye to help entrepreneurs and small businesses stand out and show off their brand through consulting and branded lifestyle photography.

I am inspired by dreamers, doers and makers. Helping them capture the true essence of their brand truly is one of the greatest feelings in the world.

A continuous learner, passionate creative, and heart-centered entrepreneur, I’m always looking to create pretty things, build meaningful relationships and make a difference in this world.

Let’s meet up soon and talk about your brand.

Laura has been nothing short of amazing. Coordinating with her for my brand shoots has been easy, effortless and turnaround time for the images was quick. She is responsive to my business needs, she was patient with the overall project from beginning to end and I would highly recommend her to other brands in need of direction. Three words to describe Laura of the Creative 18 would be: Honest, Reliable, and Available to what your business needs are. After working with Laura, there really is no reason to look elsewhere!

I’ve worked with Laura, owner of the Creative 18 one time, and I am already trying to contain myself from overplanning for future branding shoots. Images have been one of the biggest game changers in my business. The photos I recently shot with Laura reflect my essence to a T. I am so grateful to have come across this phenomenal woman and cannot wait to create more magic together. Creative 18 is fresh, clean, and modern.

From the minute Laura and I met, she struck me as someone who was patient and really wanted to understand my goals and ideas for my brand. She is absolutely devoted to her craft and made the day feel like I was just hanging out with a friend. In fact- we had so much fun she DID turn into a friend! Laura went above and beyond to make the day so special. I would recommend her to absolutely anyone looking to showcase their brand because she is so intuitive and can really understand what you’re looking for, even if you yourself don’t quite know yet.

Such great vibes from a beautiful woman who’s capturing moments to reflect your individuality. I’m so happy that I was referred to Laura. I’m looking forward to working with her again!!!

Laura’s Branded Photo Shoot was a total game-changer for my business. My fees as a coach are significant, so as I grew I wanted a sleek visual representation of the power and professionalism of what I offer. I had particular goals to create a website that be compelling, engaging, and professional to set me up for more opportunities in the speaking and publishing realm. From our first call, Laura had my brand and my needs in mind. She was bubbling over with ideas to share, and enthusiasm for me and how to capture exactly who I am and what I do. I was especially impressed with all the ideas Laura had for how to represent me visually so that we could translate my work, which isn’t always tangible, into images that speak to people. As a result of her marketing experience, long pre-shoot process, and excellent taste, I now have a website that sleekly represents my aesthetic, my business, my energy, and my taste in a way that is current, young, compelling and totally me. I’m so grateful for my time with Laura. This opportunity to shoot with her really upleveled my brand — and created images for social media that I just didn’t have before.

My experience with Laura was incredible! She worked hard to understand my brand - who I am, what I do, the vibe I’d like to show, my values, my mission, etc. so that she could properly portray this in visual content for my social media, website, and promotional materials. I appreciate the time she spent creating a mood board so that I can prepare myself with my clothing, props, makeup, hair, accessories, etc. Our time during the shoot went so smooth because Laura made me feel so comfortable as she was behind the camera. Thank you, Laura, for your passion to bring the best out of me and my brand!
