& owner of laurel belle photography
Laura Tompkins started Laurel Belle Photography in 2012. Her love and ability to see the beauty in everything and everyone manifested itself into a boutique photography business specializing in families. In the past three years she has begun expanding her services to include Branding & Promotional Photography for women, female entrepreneurs, lifestyle bloggers, health coaches & fitness gurus.
Laura also founded "The Confidence Project" for teen & tween girls ages 12-18. These extra special portrait sessions combine combine a gorgeous group of portraits with quotes from the people that love the teen/tween girl the most, ultimately resulting in a gorgeous keepsake book that she can look back on as she graduates high school, graduates college, gets married, or celebrates any major milestone in her life.
Laura is obsessed with "Breakfast at Tiffany's". The movie. The star. Those sunglasses. The whole old-Hollywood of it all. In a way it defines her and her way and ability to see beauty in everything and in everyone. This love has allowed her creativity to spark in her joint venture, GLAM CAMP, with Jaime Spencer as they aim to make every woman feel special & beautiful.
OUR "MEET-CUTE" STORY
The owners of GLAM CAMP, Laura Tompkins & Jaime Spencer, met in December of 2016 when Jaime hired Laura to do a family portrait session for her family. Jaime's sweet husband mentioned to Laura at the end of the session that his wife does GORGEOUS hair & make up and asked if Laura needed anyone for shoots. Laura may or may not have jumped up and down. Jaime is STUNNINGLY gorgeous and put together while Laura runs around in Fabletics & Nikes 99% of the time. A week later the girls set up a a brief meeting over wine that turned into a 4 hour talk fest. The girls bonded over everything from their love of wine to how hard it is to make new female friends as a grown-up. Mostly they talked about their daily struggles with self-confidence and feeling "enough". Fast forward to the birth of GLAM CAMP, their joint venture of helping women feel beautiful, confident, and sexy in their own skin no matter their age, shape or size.
