A native Californian, Laura grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, spending most of her childhood outdoors at the beach, sailing, writing poetry and taking photographs with her sister. As a daughter of a commercial airline pilot and a wildly creative mother, Laura's lifelong passion for photography is the product of her traveling adventures around the world, discovering the visual beauty and intrigue of foreign lands, cultures, and customs.


When not in the studio or on location, you will find Laura sailing the deep blue sea off the coast of California or searching for perfect surf with her husband, environmental architect David Hertz. Together, they share their happy home in Venice Beach with their three beloved rescue dogs.
