Inspiring Conversations with Laura Straub of lastphoto.kc

Today we’d like to introduce you to Laura Straub. 

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I’m Laura Straub, owner of lastphoto.kc, based out of Kansas City and traveling across the world. I am an award-winning, internationally published photographer, that specializes in boudoir. 

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
It has not always been a smooth road. I have been a photographer since high school, starting with senior photos, then families, then weddings, and now boudoir. May of 2020 is when I left a stable, full-time, engineering job to be a photographer full time. Before I quit, I had been working 7-4 at my engineering job and coming home and working till 10 or 11 every night on photography. Becoming a full-time photographer was a huge leap, but very well worth it in the end. 

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
lastphoto.kc offers luxury boudoir to women of all shapes, sizes, backgrounds, ages, and more. 

Here at lastphoto.kc, we believe in loving ourselves. Every jiggle and wiggle, every tiger stripe and scar, every blemish and bump, every inch of our bodies, from the top of our heads to the tips of our toes. 

Here at lastphoto.kc, we reconnect with what makes us truly beautiful. We relight the fire inside of you and ignite your confidence like never before. It’s never too late to start falling in love with yourself again. 

We love surprises, fun facts, and unexpected stories. Is there something you can share that might surprise us?
Almost every single woman that walks into our studio, is nervous; it is 100% normal. Boudoir is a very intimate process that we help you through at your own pace.
