Atlanta, Georgia

Welcome Lori! Tell our fans a little about yourself!

I am an on location natural light photographer serving Northwest Atlanta and the surrounding areas. I consider my style as having a lifestyle
approach to portraiture. I am married with one son and have a beautiful golden retriever named Molly. I love sunshine, summertime and my flip

What is in your camera bag right now?

Canon 5d MKIII (or what I refer to as the Mack Daddy!), 35mm 1.4L, 85mm 1.8, and Canon 100mm 2.8L. The Black Rapid camera strap and shoot sac has saved my life! Safety pins and bobby pins-you never know when you may need them! I also carry a reflector on shoots.

We see that you specialize in seniors, how did you decide to market yourself in this area?

Having a senior of my own, I feel like I can really connect with them. I love hearing about their plans for the future, funny stories, and what they love to do. Their senior year is such an important time for them, I truly enjoy capturing each of their personalities!

What would be your ideal shoot?

Somewhere adventurous!

Looking back when you first start, what is one thing you would have changed?

Oh goodness, so many to list! But, looking back I wold have to say editing!

Any new projects coming up in 2013?

Yes, it is always a secret until it is revealed, I like to keep my fans on their toes! Last November, I shot a concept session called “The Woodlands – A Fairytale” I made the costume for my model (I even dyed the fabric for her skirt 3 different times trying to get the right color!). I had a few friends help with the finishing touches – Fairytale Jubilee designed the couture head piece and her hair and makeup was by A Glamour Affair. Concept sessions really bring out my artistic vision and are so much fun. Visit this session here.
