It feels like just yesterday, that I was giving birth to my daughter, Skyler, but then again it seems like forever. I’ve shot hundreds of senior portraits but today it’s for us. Time flies. I remember when I was younger, some of my clients would tell me how quickly their kids grew up and hearing that over and over again really stuck with me. I believe it made me more aware of when I did become a mother, that I would paid attention to every moment and was always present. I never wanted to regret the time that was passing me by. I ended up getting divorced when my daughter was just 2 years old, so I was a single parent for most of her life. We didn’t have a big family but we had so much joy, love, laughter and wonderful memories. Of course, I took a lot of photos and for that I’m grateful. Now that she’s turning 18 and graduating high school I get to reflect on all the wonderful years and even though she technically now an adult she will always be my baby. For her graduation gift, I am making her a beautiful keepsake album with pictures from every year of her life along with the poems that I wrote her over the years. Being her mother is one of the greatest gifts. When the album is done I will post it and share it. Fall in love with moments. xoxo- Lori
There are so many amazing Spring Flowers photo shoot locations that I love capturing this time of year. There are dozens of magical spots within 10 minutes of the studio. You can find purples, reds, blues, and this expansive field of yellow wildflowers.Every year this field explodes with so many blooms that I never run out of fresh and new ideas and looks. This Spring Flowers photo shoot was an individual Classic Beauty Signature Session featuring the beautiful Paige. I also love shooting Families and Kids Signature Sessions here at this location. There is something about this vast field that effortlessly reflects a person’s natural beauty. Shake off the Winter blues with a bright dose of the Spring yellows provided with a bluster of love by mother nature. Schedule a Consultation for your Spring Flowers Photo Shoot today. I’d love to capture your beautiful magic before the yellow is gone…
