Classic Beauty is Timeless

Lifestyle Photography in Orange County

Our lifestyle photography is natural, candid, and accentuates everything beautiful and wonderful about you. We can take your pictures at our premier Orange County studio, at your home or location of your choice. Our lifestyle sessions are the art of your everyday life. Deep down, you and I both know the undeniable truth that everyone is beautiful — and true beauty is ageless. And, of course, beauty goes far beyond being skin-deep. Without doubt, a woman’s inner beauty shines through to bring her outer beauty to life. A powerful combination that’s undiminished by age.
Most photographs focus on highlighting your visible outer attributes, but you want more than that, right? You want portraits that capture those elusive inner qualities that transform a photograph into a timeless work of art. Lori works tirelessly at her goal of helping you to see the goddess within through the mirror of her camera. Decades of experience has developed a unique gift to allow her to capture your inner beauty for all time, through exquisite lifestyle portraits. You have your own captivating characteristics. Whether it’s your nurturing, gentle and loving spirit, or your strength, elegance, charm and wit. Maybe it’s all the above, or something else entirely.
Whatever your personal and unique magic is made of, Lori will capture it for you. Treat yourself to our studio’s state of the art lighting, designer sets, luxury hair and makeup services, access to our exclusive wardrobe, and props from around the world. This session is your time and Lori will reflect your distinctive personality and highlight your best features with all the glorious aspects that make you, you. Are you ready to feel amazing and capture your inner light in a classic lifestyle photograph?

… (Lori Brystan) comes with a wealth of reputation in talent, grace and professionalism. What impresses me most about Lori is that she doesn’t help you transcend time, she absolves time through her camera which is a window of her soul shared in her artistry. She is truly a Master in her profession and wears this distinction so well because of her huge heart.

Dear Lori, I really didn’t have the words to properly thank you. As a mom I run around making sure everybody else is taken care of and fall into bed exhausted night after night. As the years have gone by I very rarely look in the mirror and when I do I only see how I have aged. I was terrified to have my pictures taken – even more so to view them. I see glimpses of Mava and pieces of my doughters in me. I LOVE the pictures. We all do. Thank you for helping me see I am still in there – still Mava. This gift means the world to me. Thank you so very much.


I can’t begin to tell you how amazing my experience was at Brystan Studios. I had a classic beauty shoot done by Lori, the owner and I have never been more comfortable. Her kindness and vulnerability made me feel like I had known her forever.  This showed in my shoot and the fact that I was so comfortable, made my photos look so amazing. She makes you feel like you are her best friend and she makes you feel beautiful! I am so happy with the amazing wall portrait I purchased and so well worth it.  I can’t wait to schedule my family portrait in August!
