About me


Welcome! Thank you for taking the time to view my work. I am a natural light, documentary-style photographer, which just means I’m a storyteller, capturing your everyday life and times in images. For me, it is all about authentic, evocative imagery that represents who you are. I would love to work with you to design a session that showcases your family’s   lifestyle.

I’m available for on-location shoots or I can come to your home for a documentary-style session that highlights your family’s daily routines, rituals, and all that is very YOU!

A bit abut me:
I’ve always been one to document, but my love of photography really blossomed with the birth of our first child. I inherited my first DSLR camera, which I enjoyed, but it wasn’t until a friend taught me how to use the manual mode that I realized pointing and shooting play a very small role in creating a compelling image. So my quest began: to make images — creatively and expertly — that move the viewer.  Soon after, I had life changing moments to document: our 2nd daughter’s cleft palate surgery and bringing our son home from the hospital for the first time. But I have realized what I enjoy most is capturing the little things: how she cocks her head when she pushes her palms into the play dough, or how he clambers up onto a bike that is way too big for him. For me, the joy of capturing a moment beautifully and memorably is the most exciting part of photography. I would love to share this gift with you, to come together for a time and create a collection of images that bring you just such joy.website photo-1

I was born and raised in Ventura, Ca., so I have seen it grow and blossom into a vibrant city. With it’s stunning “beachscapes” and gorgeous hillsides, parks, and agricultural land, we truly have a variety of settings at our doorstep to make your perfect portraits. Hope to hear from you soon!

  1. Oh my goodness your work is fantastic! Laura Powers gave me your info. I want to book a session for our little trio! (Mom dad & daughter) it would make a good xmas gifts this year. 🙂


    1. Thank you! I appreciate that. Were you interested in the upcoming mini sessions or the full sessions? You can read more about my sessions here: https://lorephotography.com/contact-2/

      For the mini sessions I still have slots available Nov. 6th at 2:45, 3:00, 4:10, and 4:30. I also am adding a third day, Saturday October 15th. I am open to either morning or afternoon times — the first one to book that day will decide if they will be morning or afternoon! 😉


    1. Thank you! So nice to meet you — I didn’t want to interrupt, but when I saw you in there I just had to stop in and tell you since I’ve been admiring your work for a while now!
