MEET LAUREL BELLE.
Welcome to my site! I'm so happy that you're here. I am a branding, headshot + content curation photographer. That means I help brands create cohesive, beautiful imagery for their websites, blogs, social media accounts + promotional materials. I also help brands create stunning, easy-to-use websites full of call-to-actions + alt-text so you can worry more about the other parts of your business.
My passions are my confidence boosting photography sessions for women AND my one-of-a-kind portrait experience sessions for teen + tween girls, The Confidence Project. I find total happiness in helping women + girl's feel like their best selves through the beauty of photography.
"Laurel Belle" is me. It's not my name though. I am Laura Tompkins. The company name is a result of a late night google search for words that are short for "Laura" and "Elizabeth" (my middle name) + it stuck.
I am a Charlotte native (a unicorn, if you will). I am addicted to coffee + binge-watching Friends + The Office on Netflix. I love all people + adore dogs. I love seeing movies on opening night in the theater + sitting on my back porch during a summer storm with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc. I have an amazing husband who is kind, supportive, hilarious + loving. I'm an only child to two great parents who raised me on good music, good movies + the simple idea that you should treat others the way you want to be treated.
I love what I do + love helping others to feel confident in their brands, their bodies, + in themselves.
What can I do to help YOU?

I love everything about this woman. She's professional, kind and kept me calm from the minute I hired her! Photoshoots are never easy...Laura made it simple from beginning to end. Then add in Jaime Spencer her partner-in-crime! My makeup never looked more natural, my hair was fresh and "me". I guess if I had to choose one word to sum up my shoot, I'd say...delightful. And my pictures are beautiful. Just me only BETTER. I actually look like ME! I could go on forever. Thank you, Laura and Jaime, for making what usually is a stressful day, easy and fun. I'll be back again and again.
