About Lara

Hi, I’m Lara!

Originally from Sydney, I have called the beautiful Blue Mountains home since 2007, where I live with my husband and golden retriever.

I feel very lucky to live on the doorstep to a stunning National Park, with the natural environment being a constant source of creative inspiration.

The earliest memories of my passion for photography go back to when I was 9 and on a family trip to England to see my grandparents. Even at such a young age I remember quite vividly feeling like I was truly in my element, travelling around the English countryside shooting stills on the automatic 35mm film camera my parents had bought me. It feels like photography has always been part of my being; I don’t know how to not always be looking, studying light, searching for that decisive moment. It is my true passion and enriches my life every day. I honestly feel so lucky to have a career doing what I LOVE!

When I’m traveling & exploring I am inspired most, as it fuels my adventurous spirit and passion for street photography. I’m a lover of British comedy (Monty Python forever), bushwalking, quality time with friends in quaint beer gardens, live music, & I have a slightly crazy obsession with Jurassic Park & dinosaurs (velociraptors are my favourite).

I am an Associate Member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography, and the current AIPP NSW Wedding Photographer of the Year.
