About Lori

Me...

  • I'm a teenager trapped in a 40+ year old body.
  • I'm blessed with a beautiful family.
  • I speak fluent snarcasm (it's my love language).
  • My iPhone is permanently attached to my hand. It's quite sad really.
  • Don't call me before 9am, I will most definitely bite you.
  • I'm OBSESSED with cooking shows, but I actually hate cooking. I have a kitchen because it came with my house.

 

Why Am I Different?

My love is working with high school teen and seniors. Their unique personalities, passion for life and readiness to take on the world inspire me like nothing else. They speak snarcasm and we just seem to click. I believe people are born with gifts and talents. My gift is the ability to see beauty in those who fail to see it in themselves. I feel complete when photographing young ladies who have never felt beautiful, but suddenly are able to see what I see. It's a joy like no other.

I offer my clients the ultimate photographic experience...luxury custom photography.

I love to educate clients about custom photography because let's face it...it's hard to find. I am NOT talking about the mall studios or the photographer down the street who charges $100 and gives you a CD of your images while sending you on your way. That is NOT custom photography.

Custom photography is about art, professionalism and client service. When you decide to invest with me, you are investing in a lifetime experience. From the very beginning you'll notice a huge difference. You'll never be some client that I'll forget about tomorrow. We will discuss exactly what you want out of your portraits. Are you gritty and urban? Or do you prefer a softer beach or field type of look? Not sure what to wear? No worries, we can go through your outfits at your Meet & Greet. I want to spend time getting to know you BEFORE we do your shoot. You should feel 100% comfortable and excited the day of your shoot, so making sure we get all the unanswered 'fluff' out of the way ensures that will happen! Really? What photographer do you know of that actually helps you pick out clothes and designs your shoot around YOU? This is what makes me different from everyone else. You are one-of-a-kind...shouldn't your portraits be too?

The fun stuff begins with airbrushed makeup and hairstyling. You will feel like a Goddess! Then we'll leave to shoot at great locations and get shots that look different than everyone else's. There will be a variety of locations, poses and looks. As we change locations or outfits, we can take a break to change up your hair too. Change is good my friend! These are the details that make all the difference.

After your fabulous session, begins the editing. Yes, even those glamourous models need a little editing. No, I don't want to make you look like some plastic Barbie. I DO want to help you look your best. These are the portraits you'll look back on in 20 years and I'm pretty certain you don't want that big fat swollen blemish reminding you of your pubescent years! I want your face to be flawless, your eyes to twinkle and any peeking bra straps to vanish! Does the school's photographer do any of this for you? What about the studio kiosk in the mall? Yeah, I didn't think so. They focus on volume...I focus on YOU.

In the end, YOU choose not only your photographer but your photography experience and as a result, your images. It's true, "You get what you pay for!" Save up your money and INVEST it in a whole custom photography experience. I can promise you that you'll always regret not doing it...particularly for such a significant milestone in life.
