If you're new here, welcome!

Before we move to the next level, I want you to know a little more about me.
I'm a Northwest Arkansas residing, Jesus pursuing, easy-going kind of girl. I'm most comfortable when at home in Nike shorts, under a cozy blanket with coffee in hand... and more than likely thinking about my next opportunity to eat tacos. Because tacos, am I right?  I'm pretty relaxed but like spontaneous adventures, and enjoy spending any spare time with my people. Speaking of my people... My name may be Loren, but I'm most often referred to by my family as Lou, and my friends call me Lo. And you? You can just take your pick!

As a photographer, I look forward to first looks, chasing toddlers, and sweet baby snuggles. I have been taking photographs since the time I was young, but over the years I have grown to love authentic interactions and real emotion. I believe that eyes tell stories, smiles are contagious, and unplanned, unposed moments are the absolute best! I love that this adventure of mine gives me the opportunity to meet new people, build new relationships, and capture sweet moments that will be treasured in your family for generations to come!

I want to extend a big THANK YOU for stopping by!
If I can assist you in any way, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Why do I absolutely LOVE what I do?  If you really want to know keep on reading...

I've watched proud parents delight in their newborn smiling for the first time.
I've cheered with families as a little one takes their very first step.
I've celebrated with seniors as they eagerly anticipate their next chapter.
I've witnessed children be welcomed into their new, forever family.
I've cried with a bride as she lives out the day she's dreamed of her entire life.

I've been welcomed into families lives, and cultivated relationships that go beyond the delivery of their images. I've seen newborns grow into children that now know me by name, and I've been considered family to the most precious people that started out as total strangers I happened to photograph. 

For me, it's not about how many followers I have or the business I receive.
It's about the people I GET to serve and the sweet moments I'm INVITED to experience with them.
It's about the humbling honor and privilege of capturing those little moments that you will treasure for generations to come.
And that makes every little thing... every business expense, every long day, every editing marathon, every slow season, every worry and stress...
totally and completely worth it.

To all my client-turned-friends,
Thank you for allowing me to be a small part of your lives.

love ,

loren
