Hi friends – it’s been a while since I’ve updated here, and mostly that’s because I’ve been making a few changes around here. I decided to officially close the doors on Elle Photography/Laura Monfredini Photography at the end of 2018. My reasons were many and varied – mostly, I got too busy with other things. I loved every minute of taking pictures for my wonderful clients and getting to share their lives at their happiest times. Thank you to everyone who let me into your life – I am humbled and grateful.
While I’m no longer taking photos for hire, so to speak, I am not putting my cameras away. I’m continuing to just experiment and take pictures of things that interest me. I’m shooting almost all film these days and having fun going back to the slowness and art of photography.
I’ve also been writing a weekly newsletter – The Elle Report – that’s become a fun hobby. I’m not monetizing it at all. It’s just a round up of articles and images I’ve liked during the week. The articles are focused on culture, art, design, fashion, things to watch and listen to, basically my version of the style section of a newspaper. It’s also a place where I can share some of my film photos & other images I find out there on the web that I think are cool or inspiring in some way. It’s subscription based via Mailchimp & if you’d like to sign up, you can click here to do that. If you’re undecided, that link will also let you look at past issues so you can “try before you buy” (even though it’s free :-).
I may still update here from time to time, too. Thanks for reading, y’all!
