My name is Laura, I'm a 22 year old french student and freelance web designer living in Paris. I'm a tea person. I love dogs, festivals, sunsets, the ocean, grainy film photos, and tree-lined driveways. I could live off cheese and pasta, peonies are my favorite flowers and both my hair and life are always a mess.

I developed a passion for photography from an early age, and as a teenager, I would spend my free time shooting landscapes in and around Beirut, where I grew up. By the end of my high school years, I had to choose my major for college. I wasn't sure wether I wanted to study math or art in general but I knew I wanted something that would challenge me and allow me to develop in a way. In the end, I went with computer science and applied mathematics and kept photography as a hobby. With camera in hand, I started experimenting with photographs of Paris, and my travels. I have no formal training or background in this field, but I spent the necessary time to learn everything I could to become a competent photographer and invested in the proper equipment.

In May 2014, Dear Laura was created. I decided to make a home for my photos and random thoughts — a visual diary of some sort. Through this blog, I have had the chance to connect with many creative, passionate and inspiring people from all over the world. I'm currently working on my master's degree in AI and Robotics, as well as collaborating with other creative people, photographing passionate bloggers and influencers, and covering different events and festivals around Paris and Beirut.
