Laura Schneider was born and raised in Wisconsin.  At an early age, she recognized she had something different to offer the world.  Laura's mission in life is to create work that matters.

Laura is a Midwest-based artist who colors outside the lines of life.  While earning her BFA from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, her passion for photography was ignited in the darkroom.

For nearly two decades, Laura has been capturing subtleties that go overlooked by the casual observer.  Her perceptive nature gives her work character and revealing depth.  She leverages her senses and the natural qualities of her environment to leave inspired, relatable creations in her wake.

She is currently working on Illuminating Women, an exhibition which shines a light on inspiring women in her community.  This exhibition is a collaboration of journalism and documentary photography.  Through storytelling, Laura creates a connection we long for.  Illuminating Women will open in February 2020 at Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts.




Studio L Photography was founded in 2007, but in reality, it was born in the magic of the darkroom.  That's where I discovered the artist in me, amid the developing trays and finished photographs hung to dry.  While I’ve spent the last 10 years as a portrait and wedding photographer, I’ve also been simultaneously building a catalogue of almost two decades worth of fine art photography.

After 13 years in business, 2020 is a season of change for Studio L.  I’ve realized that there's so much more I’m called to do as an artist.  Working with art enthusiasts to bring art into their homes feels like a natural progression towards what I’ve been secretly dreaming of for years.




Now that you know a bit more about me, let's talk about you and your photography needs!  It's time to bring the beauty of art into your space and I'm here to help you with that.  Learn more about Studio L's customized client experience!
