Keep Time in Place, with Laura's Photo


Going forward, I am looking to work with military families and nonprofit organizations.  If you have a new business, you can request information and an application below. Please send an email to [email protected] detailing date, location, and point of contact.


Keep Time in place with Laura's photos, which reflect shared moments of the greatest things in life. I am the youngest of five children from descendants of Greenwood,  South Carolina. Like my ancestors, I believe in hard and pursuing the footsteps of my ancestors. The fellowship designation came from the hospitality of the southern family which reflects that lifestyle.

I am an Event Photographer. I use high-resolution images for individuals,  newspapers, and social media. I desire to capture everyone's vision and treat them like VIP's, making sure each guest presented a positive reflection.  I consider this a luxury service for your fun or to help your business be captivated in your memory either in print or digital format. 


My work ethics come from my parents and forefathers who were entrepreneurs,  military cooks,  security guards,  teacher's assistants, housekeepers, and stay at home parents. My spirit embodies something from each of them. Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech continues to inspire me and order my steps by modifying and expanding products into the next level.

Growing up in North Philadelphia, both of my parents showed me an invaluable smile and encouraged me to pursue my dreams through the challenging stages of life. I took on the policy of making this a part of my role in helping others to desire to experience the same sentiments of affection within their families.

The curriculum at the Community College of Philadelphia allowed me to pursue entrepreneurship with an Associate in Arts degree in Business in 2009 and a Bachelors degree in 2023 at Pierce College in Philadelphia after I concluded my service in the United States Army. I wanted to incorporate the motivational tools of trust and communication that I learned with my fellow soldiers into my civilian lifestyle. The purpose of the Keep Time in Place vision is to capture moments for the current and next generation as a springboard for motivations using images. 


As a professional photographer for over two decades, I have recognized the importance of documenting memories through high-quality photographs. I own a comprehensive portfolio encompassing a wide range of subjects, including sports, corporate events, celebrity photographs, personal photographs for headshots, weddings, and various social gatherings such as birthday parties, book signings, retirement parties, funerals, and other celebratory occasions. My extensive collection of notable celebrity portfolios includes candid photographs featuring General Colin Powell, the esteemed former Secretary of State of the United States. I have collaborated with various organizations. 

My company reached a new height when I founded My Life, Our Life Story with Laura, a platform that provides access to photos, storytelling, and medical history, transforming illness into a source of pride. This vision is about knowing that nature controls one's medical issues. The inspiration for this vision came from a three-day medical awareness day, which aimed to ensure that every member underwent cancer testing. The event is scheduled to take place in June 2024.
