    ""The first time I saw Lara's work--I was blown away. She has the unique ability to balance subtle complexity with simple elegance in every shot. Her stills have the movement of a motion picture, transporting the soul into spheres of the angelic. Her originality will no doubt propel her to the global eminence of a true artist."

    "She is the relentless, passionate seeker of the truth... to touch each one of us in some way with each sketch, and every completed piece, each and every creation... inspiring us to question the secrets of life so that we too may seek them in ourselves and in our own creativity... in turn we may share our own creativity and connect, form and bond with one another and with nature and venture forth unto this world with an enlightened, positive spirit...

    "I keep visiting Lara's page hoping and praying that some of her beautiful creativity and talent will rub off on me...she inspires me so much. The first couple of times I browsed through her pictures I thought for sure she had to have had decades of experience, but after looking at her profile and found that she was the same age as me, I realized that I definitely fell short. If there was a rating on Flickr, on a scale of 5 she would definitely be a 10!"

    "It's not enough to describe Lara's work as "good" or "cool". I guess, even "amazing" or "incredible" can't express the beauty of her work in an adequate way.
    I think I have to invent new words ;-)
    While I do this I'm happy to be able to watch your art. And I'm curisous: What will this beautiful lady come up with next?
    Keep it up!"

    "first time i saw Lara was on dA... i actually saw some of her stock photos and she was/is incredebly beautiful, i was astonished and amazed at same time. She eventually watched me and i kept on checkin' her stuff hoping that someday i would go there again and get very amazed by her photos and well... i was right, one day i got there and i just fell for it. till now i keep on track with Lara photography and modelling because i like both, but i do love her self-portraits and how she makes the whole scene, it's very inspirational mostly for me because i love the kind of style she uses and how she holds also the objects and so on, it often looks like a renaissance painting or baroque one.

    kiss and love"

    "Lara's images are far more than pretty pictures. Her photos all exude elegance and are emotionally charged. Her self portraits speak of her beautiful sense of creativity and mind. Each photo is filled with emotions the viewer gets to experience and interpret for themselves.
    She is not only amazing in the photography field, her paintings are gorgeous as well.
    Overall Lara is an inspiration to those who view who photos and elegant and beautiful girl.
    I am lucky to have came across her works. :)"

    "Lara, your precocious talent is matched only by your precocious beauty. You evoke such wonderful feelings & emotions with your outstanding self portraiture. Your sublime images evoke great empathy & emotions. You see the World already through older, wiser eyes. You make many special moments with your camera, & I for one am so very happy to admire them, often in awe. Every visit to your photostream seems to yield new, even more beautifully sublime images. It's a little scary to consider your Art improving with time, but I am rapt viewing the process...

    Tschuss!

    "What I like most about Lara is that she has a great eye for quality light, she has the photographic look, that's certain. Browsing trough her galery is like reading poetry; Neruda and Yeats, that's what I see :0)
    She's a friendly girl and, despite her claims, does speak a very good English (and French) ;0)"

    "Lara's antique-scented photostream is like a meeting-house of allusions and moods from the most classic literary masterpieces; and is almost as stunning as Lara herself.

    She reels off amazing images whilst retaining a sense of casualness and modesty that makes her work seems effortless.

    A very Merry Christmas to you Lara.

    "Great photographers take you to a place of their own. If I look at Lara's pictures she takes me back in time, away from day to day life. She creates a world of serenity, creativity and pureness. Yes she's a beautiful girl, but with her creativity and concepts, she takes her beauty to another unique level. Appearently she sings and plays the piano too, which makes perfect sense looking at her stylish pictures. There's a beauty in her which which I cannot totally grasp, which remains somehow a mystery. Although art cannot be defined as such to me that's the best indication."
