Elizabeth Marie – Photo Editor

Elizabeth has been editing for over a year now, and is a pleasure to work with.

Amy Tran – Photo Editor

Amy edits all of my studio work and newborn sessions. She is an amazing editor, with dreamy skin tones, and a seamless studio look and quick turnaround times.

She is currently accepting additional photographers, so if you are looking for an editor, please feel free to contact her at and tell her “Lori” sent you for a free editing trial.

Addressing Editing Concerns and Transparency:

I understand some clients might wonder about the use of photo editing assistance. Here’s the deal: while I collaborate with talented editors like Elizabeth and Amy, I remain personally involved in the editing process.

I’ve invested significant time in training Elizabeth and Amy to faithfully capture my editing style and signature tones. This ensures your final gallery reflects my vision and aesthetic.

Benefits of a Talented Team:

Why outsource editing? As a professional photographer with over 14 years of experience, I believe the foundation of a stunning edit lies in in-camera excellence. This means mastering exposure, lighting, and styling during the shoot itself.

By having am amazing team onboard, I can achieve several benefits for you:

  • Faster Turnaround Times: Streamlined editing allows me to deliver your final gallery quicker.
  • Enhanced Responsiveness: This frees up my time to respond more promptly to your inquiries or any editing adjustments you might desire.
  • Elevated Service: Ultimately, this amazing team empowers me to better serve you by focusing on capturing exceptional photos and delivering a smooth client experience.

Trust me, your final gallery will be a masterpiece!
