Hi there!  So happy to have you here. 

I'm married to my best friend ~Nathan, and we our doing are best to raise our crazy, twin little boys - Sawyer and Cohen and their sassyet little sister, Haven.
I was born and raised in the Parkersburg area. I graduated from WVU with a bachelor's in Computer Science and a Master's in Software Engineering. I'm a proud mountaineer fan who bleeds blue and gold!

I have a quote in my office that says, "More ideas than time" ~ which pretty much sums up the theme of my life.

I'm Lori

Parkersburg, WV Family, Senior, and Newborn Photographer

Since you’re here, I’m sure you’ve already realized that time is a thief. You know that treasured baby in your arms – or even still in your belly – will grow and change so very quickly.  That last year with your senior at home will soon be a flash of memories and moments you wish you could have back.  

My life and my photography are centered around life's little moments, the people who make them worthwhile, and my attempt to capture it all. I'm passionate about pictures and grateful to those who've entrusted me with their memories.

Your memories are priceless.  

Each of my images are hand-edited with love and care, and I have put in hours and hours of training in how to pose, light and direct you to look your absolute best.

My photography style is clean, COLORFUL and happy.



Lists and spreadsheets make me happy. I would organize my organization if I could!
