Hi, I’m Laura!

 

I have always loved photography and graphic designer, although growing up I never thought of it as a career prospect. I was always told that you never made any money from creative work and that I should do something with better job opportunities. I’m certainly glad I didn’t listen to that advice! I know now that being a creative person is exactly who I am supposed to be.

 

When I wake up in the morning, I am filled with excitement and passion for creating beautiful imagery, capturing the world how I see it, and for sharing it with everyone I know.

 

I adore the thrill of photography; it’s a crazy adventure and I never know where it is going to take me next. Whether I’m taking photographs on the top of cliffs, deep in the forest, or in the middle of a hectic city I love every single second.

I graduated from Open Window in 2013 with a Degree in Visual Communication. I have always wanted a job doing what I love most, who doesn’t? Well today I’m the happy unicorn obsessed graphic designer at an awesome company.

 

Little did I know that back in 2014 when I was doing a friend a favour and photographing their wedding that I was actually developing my passion for wedding photography. I developed such a flare for it that the next thing I knew, BellaMoore Photography was born.

Now that you know me better here are some little facts about me.

 

  • I live in Pretoria. Yes everybody loves Pretoria Girls 🙂
  • I have an amazing and incredible handsome husband who supports me with my photography adventure.
  • I have a ridiculous obsession with unicorns
  • I love foxes hence the logo
  • Studio Ghibli films are pure genius. I wish Totoro was my friend.
  • My friends and family mean the absolute world to me.
  • I love to cook but never follow recipes. This can go either way…
  • Spring and Autumn are my favourite seasons. I just love the colours, shapes and textures!
  • I like to be silly. Life’s too short to be serious all the time.
  • I love to go urban exploring.
  • My favourite film in the world is Beauty and the Beast, what’s better than a talking candle stick and a singing teapot?
  • I also love all things Marvel.
  • I wish Ian McKellen and Samuel L Jackson were my Grandparents.
