Laura with her husband, Justin
So Laura, tell me a little bit about yourself:
I am a Christian woman artist from Florida, but am currently living in the UK. I am a makeup artist, painter, and Photographer. I have been married for almost 4 years and am loving every moment of it.
How did you get into art?
I have loved art ever since I can remember. I love being creative, getting my hands dirty and finding new things to work on. I got into Photography just last year because I finally got a great camera. I have been wanting to dive into it for a long time, but never had the equipment to do it. Now that I do I can't stop! I love being really creative with it and it has no boundaries.
What is your favorite thing to take pictures of?
I love capturing moments of beauty in nature. I love the way the light hits a tree from behind and the rays of the sun comes poring through the branches making shadows. I also would really love to travel all over the world and take some candid shots of people in there cultures. I don't like poses... I like to catch people doing there thing and living life.
What is your favorite thing to do when not taking pictures?
Spending time with my very supportive husband and cooking.
I love all types of food and and being creative with it. I love the beach and traveling as well. My husband and I love being adventurous and going to new and exciting places.
What or who is your inspiration?
Wow.. Tough one.. I love art.. whether it is metal art, glass art, beautiful bright paintings, or Photography.. I am fickle when it comes to art. If I feel something tingle inside when I see something, I know it is special. I would love to have my house filled with an eclectic variety of art. Anything Bright, bold, and emotionally moving.
Where can we find you on the web?
I am on facebook (Laura Estrada Photography) http://www.facebook.com/LauraEstradasPhotography?ref=ts
I am also in the process of setting up a really nice web-sight. I will post that on my facebook fanpage when it is up and running. But you can also find my work on http://auntie_lala1.imagekind.com/

No more giveaways!! Actually, they'll allow giveaways, but you have to go through the process of getting them approved through Facebook or risk getting your Fanpage shut down and I'm just not prepared to lose my fanpage. I've been hosting the giveaways long before this revision so I've ignored the talk about no give aways knowing I had read the rules and that I was following them. Well, here are the revised rules:
So, I've decided that since I'm not the most avid blogger I will do a once a month give away but have it last a whole week. Don't worry I'll post the rules very clearly :)
Also, I want to do fun things, what about a Friday feature? I have tons of talented artist friends!! Would you like to meet them?
Please let me know what you'd like out of this blog! Help me out a little :)
Hope you all have a great day!!
