Frequently Asked Question’s

What is a session like?
If you’re tired of the same boring photographs like I am then I think we will make a great fit! I LOVE THE UNUSUAL and have an interest in unique style and personalities. My sessions are relaxed, fun and playful.
How do I start?
When you contact Lori Jane Photography it is best to have a few days that work for you…we typically book 1 month out so keep that in mind when looking at your calendar. Holidays are a fabulous time for family portraits. These sessions book out quickly from mid September-November. Senior portraits generally book in the summer before senior year. Graduates this is a super fun time for you and we book these sessions fast April-September. Special priority to newborn shoots with babies under 2 weeks of age.
Where will my session take place?
Pick a location where you and your family can freely express yourself. We tailor each session to best fit your needs whether it’s a morning session for a rested newborn, around a child’s nap, or an evening for your entire family. Your session can be tailored around where you feel most comfortable and depending on the style of portrait you have in mind. I strive to capture the innocence of children just being themselves. What could be more beautiful than kids being natural, carefree and having the memories to show  their glorious personalities? When scheduling your appointment keep in mind your child’s happiest time.
No two sessions are the same…we will make each session unique and individual to fit your needs.
How long will my session take?
Sessions take 1-2 hours or can be done in as little as 30 minutes. This is your unique experience and time will be as individual as you are.
What do you need as the photographer?
I’m pretty easy going…all I need is you to bring the FUN! I rarely use flash and I can work with just about any location. Remember we want to focus on you and your personality not the location. So bring a sense of humor, a dash of enthusiasm and a pinch of adventure! Just be yourself and we are sure to have the perfect recipe for a successful day! My goal is to capture you when you are natural and genuine. Our sessions can be as casual or as formal as you like. Keep in mind something that you have seen before or a style you would like to create that is all your own. My goal is to create a relaxed non-pressured but fun environment for you and yours. I really feel the best photos occur when you forget that I am there and the emotion is honest, un-posed and real. Depending on what is a good time to you and your family…we might hang out at your house or go to the park with your dog, spend the day at the beach or have a picnic. Everybody looks good when they have a genuine smile and are having fun so it is our goal to have a great time and do lots of laughing.
