In an effort to maintain maximum health and safety in our community, Seattle photographer Lara Grauer is offering outdoor photography and on-location photoshoot sessions. She has also completely furnished her Seattle Photography studio with props that can be easily disinfected for sessions where an indoor look is needed. You can count on Lara Grauer, one of the leading Seattle photographers, 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 am passionate about helping solo entrepreneurs and small business owners create a successful Seattle business and enjoy providing Seattle small business coaching services. I am excited also 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.
