Laurie Hice Michaelson is an award-winning photographer and photojournalist with a keen eye for detail and discovering the story behind the story. She has traveled to Tanzania, Germany, South Sudan and Peru, documenting the essence of the cultures, people and environments she experiences. In addition to photojournalism, Laurie has photographed live music performances and done photo spreads for advertising, magazines, web sites and newspapers.
LHM Photography is based in Gainesville and Tampa, and Laurie's experiences bring a unique perspective to her portrait and wedding photos. Each session features posed and candid views that provide lasting documentary and memories. Laurie takes special care to focus on the individuals, reflecting their personalities through the eyes of her camera, and seeks out various locations, or sets up a studio, to make each photographic experience one of a kind.
The Florida native lives in Gainesville with husband Jake and daughter Caroline, and as a new mother, knows how quickly time moves on. "I love helping families document big life events and preserving memories through photography," she says. "Time flies and once it's gone, you can't get it back. But photographs help keep important moments fresh and make them last a lifetime."
