Well hi there, lovely! Come on in! I’m your photographer, Lori Dunbar, and I am so pleased to meet you.
I suppose this is the section where I tell you a little something about myself. So, here goes! I’m a mother of two growing boys, photographer, designer, and illustrator.
So, how did I find myself a professional photographer? Funny story, really…
You see, I also run a stationery business where I design and illustrate paper and gift products. To increase my business exposure, I purchased a camera to take product shots. And, to hold myself accountable to this amazing camera, I challenged myself to post a photo every day on my blog.
My skills improved and I soon received requests from friends to take family and child portraits. I fell in love.
And the rest, as they say, is history.
Now I daydream of photo shoots, day in, and day out. I am inspired by vintage and modern, great type and pattern. Lifestyle shoots and cuddly newborns are among my favorite: tiny snapshots of an ordinary day often pay witness to some of the most natural expressions of love and life. Children, high school seniors, couples, families, weddings; I strive to capture genuine, natural moments.
But what else can we do with your beautiful photographs? I can customize nearly anything! With so many options (and more every day), your wish is my desire! Canvas? Of course! Jewelry? Yes! Together let’s design a totally unique and delightful trinket to adorn your neck, arms, ears… or we can wrap it up as one of a kind gift. Wrap it up, you say? What about custom wrapping paper with your photos? We can do that, too! After I take your newborn’s photos I can design the announcement you send to family and friends. I’m pretty much a one-stop-shop!
Capturing a great photograph isn’t just technique; there must also be a great connection between you and your photographer, a comfortable and natural environment and a common desire to let loose and have some fun!
And I don’t just want to be your photographer; I want to be the person you trust to capture your story, beyond words. The moments you hold most dear in your family.
I’m so glad you’re here. Relax, grab a cup of coffee, poke around and stay a while, won’t you?
