I've found so much joy in photographing the uniqueness of each family and the fleeting moments that become so precious as your littles grow up. When I photograph your "us," I have the honor of capturing a little glimpse into your story, the life you are building together. 

The goofy grins, the shy, the happy, the moody, the content, the joy, the giggles. 

These are the moments that define your "us."


The Details

Momma, I want you to know that I don't expect for you to look perfect or to have the best behaved children. You can have your session outside or in your home. Bake pizza, play in the dirt, or cuddle on the couch with a book. My heart is just to give you an evening or morning to play, dance, and laugh together, while I capture what your "us" looks like in this unforgettable stage of your family's life.

what you'll get

• Communication with me along with a questionnaire about location, wardrobe, and special details you want documented during our time together.

• An online gallery of your edited images within two weeks of your session. I won't limit it to only a few images, you've deserve to have the whole story in your collection.

You deserve a photography experience that is focused on your family and fits your needs. Everyones budget is different, and I offer family sessions year round beginning at $600.

On specific dates during the year I offer mini sessions. Follow me on Instagram and Facebook for those special dates and times.

your experience

your investment


"When your husband says “these are the best pictures ever!” You know you’ve found a good photographer. Lori knows how to get the best shots and keep kids engaged the entire time. She captures the perfect mix of candid and posed (without being stiff) and makes it extremely difficult to choose which to print! We will definitely use her for years to come!"

"Lori is legit deserving of the title “Baby Whisperer”. We have had her take our newborn photos for all three kids and somehow she can take the most fussy of babies and lull them into the sweetest of sleeps and poses. Her artistic eye captures moments of beauty that catch my breath and make me tear up when looking at our pics for the first time. I was hesitant to take the financial plunge of newborn pics the first time around, but it is honestly one of the best financial investments we have made for our babes. We can’t keep our babies tiny for forever, but we can capture and treasure some of those incredible be-still-my-heart moments. Love your work, Lori!"



"We have had Lori take our family photos twice now and the outcome has been unbelievably amazing! Her eye for those perfect moments and allowing our family to be US is unmatched. She truly captures those moments that explain our family to a T - the soft ones and the ones where we have our best, unposed, smiles on. Every single photo we receive is one of our favorites! She will make you feel comfortable and capture your vision!"



Lori was absolutely amazing to work with! I  reached out to her for some family pictures after seeing her work through a friend. She was so quick to respond, flexible and easy to work with. She was so great with my kids, made us all so relaxed during our session and got some AMAZING pictures that I will cherish forever. I HIGHLY recommend LE PHOTO DESIGN!



Lori was simply amazing! We did a family/newborn session and with a 4 year old, 2 year old and new baby I was more than a little worried about everyone cooperating. Lori was a baby/toddler whisperer and our session was laid back and fun. If you’re looking for a fun, easy and toddler wizard photographer look no farther!



"We love working with Lori. She is very professional and very quick, but is also super friendly and fun to work with. We love her ideas and locations and guidance through the shoot; she makes us feel comfortable while being photographed. We have a small children and not only is she great with kids, she works quickly and appreciates the goofiness that kids bring which makes the photo sessions fun even when kids are being kids. I don't know how she gets so many amazing shots! Photos are amazing and turned in a timely manner. We've tried a few different photographers, but Lori is the one that we go back to. Thanks so much for your amazing work!"
