For more than 30 years, I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to help families of all shapes and sizes, and from all walks of life, capture their love for each other in gorgeous family portraiture. It didn’t take me long to realize that I wasn’t just taking family portraits, I was capturing priceless memories and their journey of growth together. Being a part of these moments brings me so much joy: from Boudoir sessions with brides in love to engagement sessions with couples; from maternity and newborn sessions to growing family portrait shoots – each session reminds me of the beauty and love that is unique to each family.
Something I always try to keep in mind when photographing families is that no two families are alike in the ways they express love. Each family has its own unique style, series of inside jokes, list of traditions, and shared dreams. Capturing their story and the individualized bond between family members is my goal as a photographer. Through our discovery and planning process, I customize each session based on your family’s one-of-a-kind connection, taking into consideration things like hobbies, preferred location, and even favorite memories together. I also make sure to consider your home decor, because where’s the fun in a family portrait if you can’t hang it anywhere? Your family’s smiling faces deserve to be the focal point in your home, acting as a daily reminder of your moments of joy together.
These moments are precious, but they go by too quickly. Before you know it your newborn will be walking, your toddler will be starting middle school, and the freshman in high school will suddenly be a freshman in college. Make sure to savor these moments while you can.

By the time we hit July, most people are over the sun-kissed, watermelon-sorbet, beach-vibes. We’re racing indoors for the sweet relief of air conditioning and taking shopping sprees to find clothing that won’t immediately absorb every drop of sweat (or, at least won’t show it). We’re fighting to still feel self-confident while drenched in sweat and realizing our shorts might not fit as well as they did last summer.
The illusion of a “hot girl summer” has seemed to fade and left us trying to just make it through the hottest months of the year.
But fear not, Gorgeous! Brystan Studios’ Christmas in July Boudoir or Classic Beauty Portrait experience has returned to help you revel in your beauty and redeem your confidence. This year, become the perfect gift wrapped up in lingerie, a sheet, or nothing at all while feeling more empowered, sexy, and fearless than you’ve felt in years! This is YOUR day to embrace your beauty (in an air-conditioned studio) and feel completely empowered.
As if renewing your sense of self-love wasn’t enough of a gift, you’ll also be treated to an entire day of pampering. For some reason, summer seems to be when everyone else needs something from you – whether it’s kids, the spouse, parents or friends: everyone is in need of your attention. Well not on the day of your boudoir shoot. Remember when I said this is YOUR day? Well, I meant it! You’ll be spoiled with a luxurious experience of getting your hair and makeup done, enjoying a nice glass of wine, and relaxing; Letting everyone else focus on you for a change.
Even though we both know your boudoir shoot is the ultimate gift to yourself, it has a double purpose… Christmas gifts! What significant other wouldn’t want to see their gorgeous queen in sexy pieces of lingerie and posed to highlight her best assets? By participating in the Christmas in July experience, you’re guaranteed to get your photos back in time for the Holidays.
Let someone else take care of you for a change. Let go of the grueling heat and your impossible schedule, and take some time to love yourself in a safe and welcoming environment.

This stunning client, Dr. Nancy came to us last year to do a Lux 4-Look Boudoir Session in our studio and one of her looks included our new Vanity Fair set that complimented her beautiful, athletic body so well.
Nancy and Lori had such a wonderful connection and she loved her experience so much, she couldn’t wait to come back. After she viewed her images, she exclaimed that Lori will be her photographer for life!
Since Nancy was last in the studio, she went through a 90-day health challenge that she created. Her results were incredible and she was so proud, so she wanted to celebrate her accomplishments with another 4-look boudoir/classic beauty session.
This time we used our newly renovated white room, along with a few other sets with new props and then took her to the yellow wild flowers with our new vintage peacock chair for her final look.
She has also chose Lori to take her Business and Branding images for website, social media and book release (more of that to come later)!
Here’s what she had to say about the session:
“Lori Brystan and her fantastic team at Brystan Studios are simply the best of the best. I am so impressed each time we work on a project together. Her photographs are artistic, top notch quality, and each frame tells a beautiful story that flows and creates a priceless memory. Lori’s creative eye and ability to translate what you desire conceptually is mind blowing. I can’t say enough about the experience you have from the moment you sit in her brainstorming session to the time you get your finished photographs in hand published in a gorgeous book. If you want the best, choose Lori Brystan.” – Nancy
We love seeing our clients grow and evolve, and then come to use to capture these transformative moments in their lives. Whether it’s only a few months or a few years apart, it is so special to be apart of each of your lives. We thank you for coming to us to celebrate who you are!
