hello there, lovely.
I am Laurie, a Midwest girl, with a tropical alter ego. I am based in my glorious hometown of Chicago _ love getting away from the big buildings for some large mountains and sea breezes.
Established in 2010, elle rose photo is the creation of a love for photography, a genuine love for interactions, and imagination. As a Midwest-based photographer I am constantly inspired by the culture and style of my surroundings. From skyscrapers to cornfields, lake fronts or river fronts, in blazing hot sunshine or snow - I am ready to preserve your memories as they unfold,
while incorporating love, light and laughter.
loves :: Craig, t.strap heels, the smell of fresh coffee beans, Hawaii, red wine, tv shows,
Louis Armstrong's 'La Vie en Rose' + my passport.
hates :: Snow, traffic, tomatoes, + non-drive through Starbucks.
why i do what i do : because I love it. It's not a line. I cannot separate myself from it, and I’ve continuously been drawn back into it. I work 100 times harder doing this job, and I wouldn't trade a minute of it. Providing you with genuine, timeless memories makes my heart happy.
what i do :: I observe relationships, quiet moments, simple glances, and I capture them so you can have them preserved forever. My sessions + wedding days are filled with genuine smiles + lots of heartfelt laughter. I don’t want you feeling bothered by the picture taking aspect of your day, I want you to be surprised at how much you loved it.
