you set out to change the world and the world ends up changing you
I really am so happy that you've really taken the time to dig through this little love of mine that I call Laura Rowe Photo and Design.
In 2009, I started fiddling with a camera and became obsessed with soaking up light and producing timeless images. I love helping people feel like the most beautiful versions of themselves. I love helping them shine in their own skin.
On any given day, you can probably find me wearing some combination of white, black, gray, or navy. I like to think of myself as a Plain Jane.
I feel inspired by anything clean and bright and I'm sometimes accused of purchasing anything from Home Goods made from white wood or ceramic.
Is there a such thing as being a "middle of the day" kinda person? If so, that's me. You'll never find me getting too excited over setting an alarm, and I'm generally that friend that wants to get into bed by 9p.
Oh, and I might be addicted to Dr. Pepper... which falls right behind my addiction to Iced Caramel Macchiatos.
I call myself "Columbia-raised," because you're raised wherever you went to high school right? ;) I was, in fact, a Hickman High School Kewpie, but I have also lived in Arkansas, Kansas, and Iowa at other points in my life.
I graduated from Columbia College with a degree in Vocal Performance and really try to sing every chance I get, including in the shower and along with the radio.
Photography has always been a simple love of mine, and now, as a full-time career, feels like a sudden dream come true.

They're mainly just the gosh-darn best, and I know that might be just a little biased, but they just always seem to be everything I need and then a little more.
We've made some of my favorite memories and I cannot wait for all of the ones still left to be made.
I promise I recognize that just might be the most "photographer" response ever, but it really is true. Goodness, the sunshine fuels me. Light drenched spaces are where I flourish the most and I live for that feeling of the sun on my skin during the warm months.
I never realized just how truly in love I could be with my life until I started making time for more of the things that brought me pure joy - whether that meant more Sonic strawberry limeades or fewer morning alarms set ;) Laughing has to be one of my favorite things in this entire world.
Meeting new people, trying new foods, experiencing new cultures, dancing to new music... just to name a few of the incredible perks of travel. I'd love to tag along on your next adventure. Whether it's taking you to the beach or the mountains, plan to count me in.
