So glad you’re here. I’m Laylee—an educator for creatives and a photographer for seniors and brands. As a former high school teacher, I'm passionate about lifting up others and educating with purpose.

hey, friend!

let's get better acquainted

I host online education programs and in-person events for creatives; otherwise, I'm behind the camera, capturing seniors and brands! You can usually find me with a cup of coffee in hand and a cat in my lap… but I’m always down to share a bloody mary and some heartfelt conversation.

agree? oh, I think we're gonna be friends.

people first. Heart over hustle. Comfort over couture.

"It was such a one of a kind experience, and we are so grateful that we had the opportunity to grow in our goals and learn more about the industry we love!  Maybe this last statement seems a bit dramatic…but, friends, we sincerely mean it when we say this retreat has forever changed our lives."

"I could not have asked for a better group of 12 people to spend a week with building relationships, resting, while brainstorming dreams and goals for each other. I feel so rejuvenated and inspired to push myself and those around me, to build my platform and community with like-minded creative entrepreneurs."

"When I went through the process of rebranding, I reached out to Laylee to do a branding shoot for me. As always, Laylee’s work was amazing. Wonderful quality with thoughtful details and touches that truly captured my personality and my business. I’m endlessly thankful for Laylee’s mentorship and the way she continues to show up for me and my business.”

"To know Laylee is to have an instant friend! Not just a sweet new friend, but the realist, most genuine and relatable soul sister that feels like you’ve known her for years! Laylee instilled confidence, dropped practical + applicable education, and left me feeling inspired. I couldn’t be more grateful for her encouragement, friendship and keep it real-ness!
