Hey there, 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 & wedding photography.
Here at lastphoto.kc, we love ourselves. ALL OF OURSELVES. Every jiggle, wiggle, wrinkle and scar from head-to-toe. Here at lastphoto.kc, we reconnect with what makes us truly beautiful. We relight the fire inside of you and expose you like never before. It’s never too late to start falling in love with yourself - want to get spicy?
What to Expect
I know you are nervous, but get ready for a life changing experience! This is a celebration all about you! We are going to laugh, have a great time & capture the beautiful, glorious woman that you are. All you have to do is show up and be you!
You don't have to worry about a thing when it comes to posing, I got you covered! Everyone is nervous at first and IT IS OK, I PROMISE! It's a natural reaction to have when your about to jump out of your comfort zone and strip in front of a stranger! But trust me, it is far easier than you think, and I promise a shit load of fun!
The experience alone is why many of my clients come back for another round!
"I absolutely loved the experience I had with Laura doing portraits and boudoir. She was encouraging and professional, and made me feel so comfortable throughout our shoot. The ending results were amazing, and I had such a hard time choosing my favorites. I highly recommend lastphoto.kc for any of your photo needs!" -Lauren Gray

Where does this go down?
My home studio is where all of the magic happens!
Located Near I-70 & 435 in Kansas City, KS (less than 20 minutes from the heart of downtown). I have 2 bedrooms dedicated to studio space for lots of variety. From a beautiful bedroom set, a black backdrop for blackdrop boudoir (my favorite!), modern furniture, a shower setup with marble tile, and I am always changing things up! Also I am on a 2.5 acre private lot that is great for outdoor photos!
However, if you're looking for something else, I definitely can come to an alternative location such as your home, or outdoor location of choice!
"There aren’t enough words to explain how wonderful my experience was working with Laura! There is nothing like having a photographer that makes you feel beautiful, who makes you feel like no matter what you USED to feel about yourself and your body, that you’re stunning just the way you are! I haven’t felt the confidence I have now in YEARS. I cannot believe how beautiful and stunning I walked out of there feeling, and I have Laura and lastphoto.kc to thank for that." -Sarah M.
What to wear
Once we have our date for your session in the books I will send out a detailed questionnaire, and a more informative guide that will help you plan the details! I am also happy to answer any questions you have along the way, and during your consult so we can plan your perfect shoot! My next guide will walk you through what items might work best for you to wear as well. I have TONS of ideas that many people forget about, so I will help you with every step!
What kind of investment are we talking here?
I truly wish every woman to have this empowering experience, and be able to invest in herself! THIS IS NOT YOUR STANDARD PHOTO SESSION! This is an experience that may quite possibly change the way you see your unique beauty for the rest of your life! This is an experience and captured moments of you being BRAVE. BEAUTIFUL. COURAGEOUS. CONFIDENT. and down right GLORIOUS! This isn't just about having some pics done for your partner. (That's may be your excuse, but its just a bonus)
I very strongly feel that a tangible, physical product/photograph is a must have in this type of experience. Investing in something to have and cherish for your life time. Something more than a digital file to be lost. I use professional printers to ensure you get best quality possible. That being said digital files are an option, and my phone app is a must have for all clients!
There is no minimum purchase required (aside from the session fee of $500), and clients typically invest over $1,500.
