Here’s an entertaining line-up of professional photographs where I look dramatically different…

Hi, I’m Laura!

My motto: With each project, I aim to capture the little moments of daily life that become timeless memories.

My background: I’m from Fresno, California and I grew up playing travel league softball and being involved in my church. I graduated from California State University, Fresno with a degree in Art and a minor Business. Outside of photography, I’ve worked with various organizations, culminating a strong background in marketing, business development, human resources, project management, and public speaking.

What motivates me:  I enjoy traveling, decorating my historic, 100-year-old house, and spending time with my husband and Penelope, our Boxer. My favorite city is New York City, with Venice, Italy being a close second!

Noteworthy things: With Facciani Photography, I was the recipient of the Entrepreneur of the Year award from the Fresno Chamber of Commerce and Richard Spencer award from, presented by the Lyles Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at California State University, Fresno.
