COVID-19 Notice

In an effort to maintain maximum health and safety in our community, we are offering 100% outdoor photography and on-location photo shoot sessions and will be working outside of the Seattle Lara Grauer Photography studio. We still have portable studio equipment available, so we can give you whatever look you need for your photo project. You can count on Lara Grauer as a leading Seattle corporate photographer, with expertise in creating commercial photography including corporate portraits, headshots, fashion, and product photography.

The new adjustments have also created an opportunity for us to work with Seattle area businesses in a coaching and learning capacity. I have a strong passion for helping solo entrepreneurs and small business owners create a successful business. I am excited to be a Book Yourself Solid® Certified Coach, and I have great methods to share, both on-line and off-line. I will also continue to teach photography classes for those wanting to improve their skills, whether it’s for business or fun. Many classes will be offered by us directly, and some will continue to be offered through the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) website.

You deserve to love your portraits and have fun making them!

Environmental vs Studio Portraits by Pro Seattle Photographer

For the skilled Seattle photographer, the old debate between left- and right-brained expression play a few cards on this table.
