Hi!  I'm Lori and I am so happy you are here. Let me tell you a little about me and my loves.

I love to laugh, it is the most inexpensive way to connect with another on the richest level. I love my family and friends. I am an amazing shopper (who doesn't love a great deal)! I love Reeses Peanut Butter Cups and eating dessert first. I love all things girly! There isn't much that is better than a great pair of heels. The perfect evening is one spent with my loves snuggling under a big blanket, with a fire in the fireplace, and a funny movie.  I love, love, love the beach and getting caught in the rain, hiking waterfalls, and one day I hope to learn to surf in Hawaii.  It's never too late -right?  I have always loved taking pictures. It makes my heart smile to capture moments in time I wish would last forever, especially those cheesy touristy photos everyone takes. As time has passed I have learned that capturing others moments makes my heart smile even more. 

I am a mother of 3 amazing children (I know all moms say that but mine really are)! Noah Alexander is my first born, my incredibly intelligent young man who one day will change the world. He looks at life in an uncommonly unique way that causes all who meet him to stop and think. He is one of the kindest most giving individuals I know and is hands down the least materialistic person I have ever met in my life. Then there is Jack Thomas, my baby boy, and he is simply the coolest guy in town. He too is an intelligent young man but has a deeper love for sports. He tells the best stories, is a leader, a protector,

and a lover of life. He is an old soul who loves when he can make others happy. And finally there is Claire Elizabeth, my daughter, who is my very curly haired angel. She is a sensitive girl that wants to please others. She has more values and integrity than some adults. She is kind, emotional, sweet, and sassy. She loves sports and to make almost anything crafty. She loves babies probably more than me, and lucky for me she still loves to snuggle. My dream for each of my children is to chase their dreams always wanting more but never expecting it.

I have been married for 20 years to my high school sweetheart. Together we have grown, conquered much, created a wonderful family, and have a host of friends that are more like family than we could ever wish for. He has the ability to make me laugh when I am irritated (which is a blessing and infuriating).  He gives the best hugs that make me feel so completely safe. He is a Firefighter/EMT which can be both amazing and terrifying but also means being part of a wonderfully large family. He is a caregiver and a protector. He is the one who will hold your hand when seconds seem like hours. He sees things some would never recover from but has two amazing shoulders to help the rest of us burden the storm. He is my love.  He is my hero.  He is my heart.

I once read somewhere that you should find what makes your soul happy and use it to make others happy.  Photography allows me to do this by turning moments you never want to forget into memories you will have for a lifetime!  Much love to you and yours...
