I am passionate about family photography. Life has its let's moments make them unforgettable. I've been photographing Orange County families for over 30 years. I know your family is one of a kind, let us capture your family dynamic in a authentic way that brings a smile to your face every time you see it on your wall. Choose to shoot in our beautiful 2000 square-foot studio filled with custom sets and  backgrounds or experience all of nature's beauty on location with so many beautiful spots here in Orange County. Our signature sessions include mom's make up and hair because we know when mama's happy everybody's happy! It's been fulfilling for me to create long-lasting relationships with so many families over the years.  Documenting their family legacies has been an honor. I believe a family portrait makes a house a home. A portrait can re-ignite the feeling of a special moment years later, nothing more powerful than that... “Lori’s photos grace the walls of our home and bring joy to our lives everyday!” ~ The Andersons  
One of my favorite things is meeting with a family before the shoot. This time spent getting to know you better leads to a more meaningful concept that is personal to you. The pre-shoot consultation is a vital element that leads to a successful session. During this consultation, we will also discuss the decor and style of your home. My experience as an interience designer helps me plan your shoot with the walls of your home in mind. I've been told many times that I'm extremely patient with children. Perhaps it's because I am a mom and just absolutely love kids. Families come in all shapes and sizes, but every family has a story. I love telling these stories in a candid style. My editorial sensibility brings life to your legacy.

For the best family photography experience possible, follow these steps...

I have a simple 4-step process that helps you plan the best family photographry experience. First, is the consultation. Second, is the session itself. Third, is the viewing presentation where you select and purchase your portraits. This presentation is typically scheduled a few day after your shoot. We can make special arrangements for same day presentations when appropriate. Lastly, you pick up your portraits from the studio. Typically, they are ready within 30 days. However, production time varies depending on what your purchase. For example, some of our hand-crafted fine art albums take six to eight weeks to be completed by our exclusive labs. While we can schedule sessions on short notice with quick turn around, we suggest planning at least a couple weeks ahead for the best family photography experience possible.
