So right now your browsing the galleries looking at all these gorgeous pictures. Thinking to yourself "Yeah right! There is no way any photographer could make ME look that gorgeous". Well you would be wrong, however, I sat there saying the same thing as I viewed the galleries Laurie Marie has up. "Yeah right?!? These girls are models!" "There's no way I could look that sexy!", and I even scoffed at the testimonials too "Uh-huh suuurre you all of a sudden feel pretty...." However the pictures were GORGEOUS and I wanted to give my honey something no one else could, a snapshot of how he sees me, day in and day out, gorgeous. I've frankly never understood his attraction to me as I crawl out of bed, bed head and all.
So I went to my session, nervous as heck! I saw my self in a different way, non sexy, uneven skin tone, baby belly from 3 kids... etc. As those words can out of my mouth Laurie quickly corrected me and banished them from the session. Only positive things allowed. Immediately after hair and make up I was amazed at how I looked ( Thank you Amanda!! ). Amanda really knows what she's doing, I could see her evaluating the entire time she did make up and hair, no "standard" make up job I suspect. Then the shoot began, I genuinely appreciated that Laurie asked about comfort level and ideas, very understanding that everyone is different. Her quirky additive meshed well with me as I am quite quirky myself! Her energy and excitement was amazing and really made me feel absolutely fabulous about myself. Genuine compliments were given consistently as well.
After only a few shots I forgot about all the nervousness I previously had. My shoot was awesome, gorgeous, and FUN! It was also very nice that she showed me some of the pictures as we were shooting. This lady sure knows how to boost a woman's confidence! While my shoot was awesome, the best feeling came after. The way I felt about myself had changed! I FELT gorgeous! Which is saying a lot for a mom of 3, who has NEVER had ANY self confidence. I'm still riding that confidence high, and quite frankly, I like it! - April
Having my picture taken by Laurie Marie was a fantastic experience. I never had any pictures taken of me in a boudoir setting before and I was a little nervous. But Laurie Marie made me feel completely comfortable and it was a lot of fun! She was very professional and the pictures were amazing. I would recommend her to anyone! - Cassie
Being photographed by Laurie was a wonderful experience. She made all of us feel very comfortable and relaxed. As someone who is not naturally comfortable in front of the camera, this is saying a lot. The pictures came out beautifully, and my husband absolutely loved them. I highly recommend Laurie. - Karen
Thank you so much for the most amazing, Boudoir session experience. I appreciate how willing you were to run with the airplane theme (something I knew my husband would love). Your easy-going nature made me feel very comfortable and I felt you completely understood the style I was looking to capture. During the shoot, I thought I would feel silly or awkward, but your direction and helped me have fun and feel like a gorgeous, pin-up girl. Upon seeing the proofs I was in disbelief at how beautiful you made me look. I think the first thing I said was, "that's not me, is it?". The image book I presented to my husband the night before our wedding was the perfect gift, he treasures it. Occasionally I'll take a peek, just to remember that this thirty-something, soccer mom still has it going on! I encourage all women to experience a Laurie Marie, it's good for the soul (and the bedroom)! Thank you, Kelly
I LOVE YOU,
Dave (the groom)
“Laurie Marie has her profession perfected. She immediately makes you feel comfortable and provides a non-judgmental environment to let your hair down (literally!) and have some fun. Whatever your intent is of your boudoir session, Laurie will cater to your comfort level. I suggest giving Laurie a call if you are feeling reluctant about choosing this type of session as you will see she truly wants to celebrate the beauty of all women." Jackie
Being photographed by Laurie Marie was such a great experience! I had so much fun and was really impressed with everything-from the studio to Laurie Marie herself and how comfortable she made me feel right from the beginning. She did an amazing job creatively as well, photographing small details and utilizing different spaces, like in the front of her studio, which turned out to be my favorite photos! I wanted to do a boudoir shoot just as something fun and liberating for myself, and I am so happy I did it. I will be sure to go back to Laurie Marie again in the future for other events and occasions-or perhaps another boudoir shoot :) Thanks again Laurie Marie! ~Jennifer
Ok... So I had my boudoir session. Very Nervous!!! Got all dolled up and then photo shoot time! Yikes!!! Let me tell you, the transition went from nervous to fun cuz by the time Laurie Marie said it's a wrap! I must've looked like a kid that had her lollipop stolen! I was having so much fun I didn't want it to stop! Aaaaand... I felt sexy and beautiful and confident. No words really explain it, but it was such a great feeling... I'll be carrying it with me forever! Love you Laurie Marie!
"I just want to say THANK YOU for the great experience that I had. I was so unsure of myself, but you made me feel so comfortable. I am a mom of Two little girls and I don't always get to feel just like a woman. And that is just how I felt that day even now when I see the photo's of me that you did, I ask myself who is that HOT CHICK? It was wonderful. I would do it again and tell all my friends that they NEED to have the same experience!! Thank you! "- Johni
Working with Laurie has been a great experience! I was a little nervous before the photo shoot because I had never posed for pictures before, but Laurie was very professional and made me feel extremely comfortable through the whole process! The environment was friendly and fun, and I couldn't have been happier with the way the pictures turned out. - Kristy
My Boudoir photo shoot was an amazing experience! It was a great way to spend a girls night out. Laurie made us all feel relaxed and comfortable. My pictures turned out beautiful and I can't wait to see the look on my husbands face when he opens his present. Thank you Laurie for helping me give my husband a memorable gift for such a special birthday. We will truly treasure this always. -Sandra
I just want to say 'Thank You' for making me feel so special! I am sure my husband in Iraq is going to love his special gift. While I set aside my 'mommy duties' for the afternoon, I was able to relax and enjoy time with my girlfriends. Getting all dazzled up sure helped me get in touch with my sexy side and prepare for my husbands return! I recommend every woman do a shoot! Thank you so much!!! -Shannon
I was more than comfortable and very impressed with the professionalism and how fun Laurie Marie made my boudoir session! I am so glad I did it! I felt pampered and beautiful. She was really able to capture me celebrating being me and that's what I love the most when I look at my photos. Every woman should be able to love herself in her own skin and BE herself. Laurie captured me perfectly. This was honestly more of a gift for myself than my fiancé. And I am totally ok with that! :) - Kasey
"Doing this photo shoot was an awesome experience! Laurie made it so easy and so much fun! It also made me actually feel good about myself! I would do this again in a heartbeat! It was a great experience and the images turned out better than I could have ever expected. Thanks so much!!" - Tiffany

"This photo shoot was the first time I have ever worked with Laurie before. I was a little unsure what she expected from me, along with what I expected from her. She made me feel so relaxed and comfortable during our session together, even if I wasn't a professional model. In the end, I was so happy with the finished product and the service she had provided. She is a true professional and I would recommend her and her work to ANYONE! " - Liz
I absolutely loved my boudoir session with Laurie Marie. To be honest, I was very nervous going into it. I don't look like a supermodel by any means; I'm a little thicker and curvier of a girl. I was definitely anxious about how I would look, but I have to say, I just saw the photos and they are absolutely incredible! Laurie Marie gave me great direction in my poses and I can't believe how beautiful and sexy I look. She also did an excellent job at putting me at ease. Within a few minutes of starting, my butterflies were gone and I was relaxed, comfortable, and smiling. I am so excited about the pictures and can't wait until my fiance gets his "little black book." He's going to love it! Thank you so much Laurie Marie for giving me the confidence to feel like a sexy bride (and woman)! :-D -Jennifer K.

Huge thanks to Laurie Marie for making me feel beautiful and sexy! I was very nervous - but with her laid back, fun and easy going attitude she really made me feel comfortable in practically nothing! She worked with what I had in my own home, making it a more personable experience - just goes to show you don't need a huge wardrobe or home to get beautiful boudoir pictures. I can't wait to give these to my husband-to-be on the day of our wedding! Thanks again!" Polly
I had my photo session back in July of this year. I emailed Laurie Marie after seeing her news spot on NBC 26. My partner Marks birthday was coming up in August and I thought what a unique idea! Laurie Marie emailed me back and our date was set. Due to the fact I was having some home remodeling done, Laurie Marie set up the photo shoot at the Brayton B&B in Oshkosh. Amanda and I arrived at the same time and she got right to my hair and makeup. I normally don't wear a lot of makeup and Amanda did a beautiful job of balancing that with a dramatic look for the pictures. The photo shoot was next. I was nervous, but Laurie Marie put me at ease and soon she was clicking away and we were laughing like old friends. The pictures were all so gorgeous; I had such a hard time picking some out for the photo book for Mark. But with Laurie Marie's help, we got the book put together, and Mark LOVED it!!!But that photo shoot and book has became to mean so much more than a birthday present. In August I was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. It has been an overwhelming couple of months. I just finished my first round of chemotherapy on Oct. 8, and as Mark and I look into the future of 5 more treatments, along with all of the side effects, this book is a reminder of the sexy, beautiful woman Laurie Marie brought out of me and will continue to be inside of me and with me through this journey.Thank you Laurie Marie for our time together and for sharing your gift with me.-XOXO Anne
INTUITIVE GUIDANCE LOVE
Most of us are faced with blocks that keep us from our life's purpose. These blocks, whether they are in our own minds and hearts, or from others' expectations, put up walls around our hearts, and keep us for being "seen" in this world as we truly are. When I first started working with Laurie Marie, this was the case for me. I had little or no confidence in my ability to create and sustain a spiritually purposeful business, and I was at an all time low in my professional mindset. Laurie Marie helped me overcome the obstacles, as they came up, layer by layer, understand my fears, and overcome them. There was a time when not only did I not believe that I could ever fulfill my dream, but I was not even sure how to go about putting the small kernel of a dream into action! Today, my dream is in motion, and I am sharing it with the world!! I cannot recommend enough what it will do for you to work with such a compassionate, dedicated mentor, who will help you learn the tools you need and to become free of what is holding you back, to gain the confidence you need to live your dreams. And by the way, Laurie Marie has LIVED THIS - she is the real deal, and knows the struggle from the inside out. YOU CAN DO THIS! - Milada R.
Thank you Laurie Marie! I have to start by saying I was very skeptical to have my reading done over the phone. I felt a phone reading would do nothing, I was absolutely wrong! Throughout my life as an adult I have felt I strive for people to love me. My reading today turned into a life coaching session I'll never forget! Laurie Marie hit very sensitive spots in my very personal life that I've not talked about out loud to ANYONE, including my husband. Laurie Marie was able to not only talk to me about these topics, but also make me feel at ease with them and start working on them. The only way to fix something is for a person to acknowledge that it is broken. Laurie Marie was able to help me acknowledge these pieces of me that are broken, and still make me feel like a beautiful person. She talked to me about ways to start healing and accepting me for me. She told me life is a practice, some days are better than others, but you still get up everyday and try. I highly recommended taking the time to talk with Laurie Marie no matter where you are in your life. - L. Orseske
" I just wanted to drop a note of appreciation to you, Laurie Marie! I can honestly say that you've helped me (and therefore, my business) grow exponentially in the last year. Without your guidance, videos, cheerleading, and wisdom, I wouldn't have the reach, style, knowledge or confidence to pull it all off. To say the simple word, "thanks", is just not enough. I love you girl!" xo- B.

“I've had several sessions with Laurie Marie over the last year and I'm so happy that I chose to have her do my readings. Having a medium work with you can be a very personal experience and you don’t want to work with just anybody. I felt so comfortable with her calm energy and at ease with all that she was able to share with me.
Since she focuses on a heart-based intuition, all the good energy was brought and I was never left feeling ‘off’ or questioning any of the process. There was even one day where what she saw for my future was the same thing my husband brought up at home later that day! Her accuracy and skill in her field of mediumship is spot on and the fact that she can do it all with a positive guiding mindset is so worth it. In fact, it’s why I keep coming back and will continue to seek out guidance in the future.” -B.H.
Prior to my boudoir session, I will admit I was definitely nervous. Laurie Marie provided me with lots of info and tips beforehand, and on the day of completely helped ease any remaining nerves. She helped me through the entire session- it was a morning that felt like hanging out with girlfriends- great music, laughter, and feeling pretty! I had a great time and am excited to see the photos. I will certainly recommend to my friends- whether it's a boudoir session made for a significant other or made just to celebrate yourself! :) Lexie
I was very nervous to do a boudoir session, but I really wanted to do one, so I spent a lot of time researching photographers. When I saw Laurie Marie's work, I was very impressed, and I was even more impressed after our consultation. At the shoot, she instantly made me beyond comfortable!!! She was so positive, and reassuring throughout the whole session! When looking at the pictures, I just kept saying "Is that really me?!?!?!". I could not be more pleased with Laurie Marie, the session, and the photos! I walked out of her studio with so much confidence, and feeling so good about myself! It was DEFINiTELY money well spent! I am more than happy I did this, and that I found the most amazing photographer! Thank you Laurie Marie! - Meghan
I first came to Laurie for life coaching. I had this nagging, yearning feeling that I knew I was meant to do more and to follow my dream of one day opening my own spa. I was really struggling with the "how" part of it. What steps do I take, where do I find the time, how do I overcome the overwhelming feelings of self-doubt in a family and community that seemed to be (at the time) unsupportive of self-care and the healing aspects of my spa services.
She and I set up times to FaceTime since we are states apart and she helped me, each time, with a different set of tasks. Taking small steps, taking action, moving forward every day/week/month (however long it took me to complete each step) and move in a positive direction for growth. I would set small goals and once I reached them or completed them we came up with new ones. Once I was able to work through the mental hurdles (and they aren't gone - they don't disappear - you just find healthier ways to get through them), I was able to start taking larger steps toward presenting to the public that I was open for business and ready to attract clients with the fitting energy. She helped me figure out how to start blogging, how to create eye-catching social media posts and how to interact with my potential clients. One of the most recent developments has been working on a website together.
Laurie is a one-stop shop when it comes to your complete brand image as well as your mental energy for your business and your life. Through every task, I have relied on her to narrow down issues and create solutions with me. She provides suggestions or tips and guides you to do the work so that you feel empowered and confident in your choices. All the while she is communicating in a loving and compassionate tone, never showing frustration or jumping in to take over a project - which is huge for personal growth.Would I recommend her? Hands down - a resounding YES! I know that I would not be where I am today with my business and personal life if I didn't have her as a guide and mentor. She has had an enormous impact on my life - always full of joy, beauty, and kindness.
She is a rare gem in a sea of glitter and I promise you, that you will not be unhappy with your choice to work with her toward your goals. Whether it be for business, love, relationships, practicing loving your body - it doesn't matter - work with her and watch the magic that unfolds! xo- Brooke B.
Laurie Marie is an amazing Coach. Laurie Marie has an amazing gift and provides her clients with insight, knowledge, and guidance in a non-threatening and very comfortable manner. I was quick to trust her with my most difficult circumstances and most private feelings, and I found that she has the uncanny ability to provide ease, even as she helped me move through some painful and often difficult subject matter.
At the time of Laurie Marie's coaching, I found myself stuck personally and professionally. I was overwhelmed with a family circumstance that exhausted me physically and mentally. I had also just recently made a major career decision that felt very scary and very overwhelming, truth be told, I was struggling with my professional identity and after I made my choice, I wondered what would become. I was lost, confused, and unable to see that I had control and power over my choices, that I could also control my perspective and ultimately my future.
Laurie Marie has a unique knack for helping you uncover your true intentions and then provides the tools and inspiration to guide you to success. She has been such a blessing to me, I consider myself lucky to have had the opportunity to work with and learn from her. Please, if you are considering working with a life coach, reach out to Laurie Marie, it is a life changing experience!- Dayna W.
"Laurie Marie is not someone I expected to be a psychic medium. I knew her as a photographer, coach, and new friend who I instantly clicked with. One day we were driving from San Diego to LA when my grandma paid us a visit. My grandma, who had passed just a few months before, and who I hadn't seen in 10 years. That morning Laurie Marie and I had been on a beach to get grounded before hitting the road and she told me about a beach she found with sea glass. In my head I thought "oh grandma. I need to go there to collect seaglass for her". That was one of her things.
Well not an hour later, she popped in to say hello, tell me she loved me, and to stop beating myself up for not seeing her before she passed. As someone who is a wee bit skeptic about mediumship but very open to magic, this felt more real than I could imagine and I burst into tears. Partly because I wasn't even hoping for it. I had no idea it was even possible.
Laurie hadn't told me about this part of herself! The words she chose, the way Laurie described her laugh as "hearty", and then when I showed her a picture, she knew that was her. Since then, she's offered me much wisdom from my guides that I remember when I need it the most. If you're looking for support from someone who can not only channel but offer solid life guidance as a trained life coach, Laurie Marie is the way to go."
Girl! You nailed it yesterday! Your skillz are a hot topic in our house! Here's the skinny... I pulled in the driveway with the girls and we were screwing around and then my husband pulled in the driveway. We all smiled and said our hello’s and as we were going in the house my hubby said to me: (and note – I did not talk to him after you and I talked yesterday) “babe, I think I figured out what I’m supposed to be doing…”
He said he wants to take a course that is 1-2 weeks of learning how to live off the land – sow crops – plant and watch things grow – butcher your own livestock like CHICKENS (you said it) and stuff so that while I am working at my wellness center he can be tending the crops that we'll use for our own pantry as well as the café and ingredients in my oils, etc. My jaw dropped and he was like ‘what?” And I was like “DO IT!!!!!! Laurie JUST said to me today in my reading, that she sees this for us! And here you are telling me you want to take a week off of work to learn how to do it and you two haven’t even talked!” He found something that makes him feel good. He started looking at land already last night and I bought a lottery ticket, lol. - JP
