Peggy Leung - Mother of 2/Entrepeneur - Image Consulting Client
"Working with Laura was a joy! Being a toddler mom, most of what I wore was very functional but out of date, and I paid little attention to fashion. I was in desperate need of an overhaul of my wardrobe but didn’t have the time nor the focus to figure out what was no longer a good fit for me. Laura spent time with me going through clothes and accessories in my wardrobe, and together we decided to get rid of pieces of clothing that was no longer a good fit (something I would otherwise never, or take a long time, to do on my own). It is very powerful and liberating for a professional to go through this purging process with me. Self admitting, I also have a very poor sense of fashion and shopping for clothes has always been a chore. Laura and I went out for a shopping session and she picked out great clothes for me that I would not have chosen myself. We also did an online browsing session and she took the time to put together a look book for me so I have something to follow when shopping on my own. Laura was so lovely to work with and it made this very personal process something very fun and enjoyable."
Laura Murray has an extraordinary ability to enhance and flatter features whether it's with clean, subtle makeup for head shots or on big editorial shoots. Her eye for colour brings out the natural beauty in everyone and makes them look camera perfect. I have always been able to rely on Laura, more than any other artist for her professionalism, cleanliness and aid at each shoot. She is also fantastic with clients, helping relax them as well as making them feel beautiful.
I am not really a "makeup" person so I was a bit nervous to get my make up done by a professional for my engagement shoot and wedding. However, Laura's friendly and calm energy really put me at ease. Before having this experience with Laura, I never would have thought I was capable of looking "stunning" or "beautiful". Well, did Laura prove me wrong! I have never felt as beautiful as I did on my wedding day after Laura finished my makeup. Since that day, I have carried this feeling of beauty forward in my everyday life, regardless of how much make up I have on
I found myself in a bit of a fashion rut so to speak. I have a fairly strong sense of personal style, but had been neglecting my wardrobe and began to feel at a loss for how my style should evolve. Laura looked at my wardrobe and worked with cues from the Pinterest board I had created to propose some different looks I could try. From there we had a shopping day. Laura had me try things on that I would not normally gravitate to and to my surprise, they often worked. The work we did helped to reinvigorate my fashion focus and I'm using what I learned to re-work and add to my existing wardrobe. I would recommend Laura's services to anyone in need of direction and inspiration with their personal style. Her warm and easy going nature makes what could be an intimidating process fun and informative. Plus - she really knows her stuff!
