Underwater photography is a one of a kind, unique art that takes much more skill, time, experience, gear, higher insurance premiums (because a camera is going underwater) and knowledge of how to process the most intriguing photographs you will rarely see.  There are very few photographers in the world who do underwater portrait photography full time, year around.  It is my passion, my love.  Underwater session ideas may include;

  • Underwater Save the Date, Engagement, or Pregnancy announcement
  • Underwater Wedding Trash the Dress
  • Underwater High School Senior or Prom Portraits
  • Underwater Maternity
  • Underwater Headshots for social media
  • Underwater Commercial
  • Underwater Children or Newborns
  • Underwater Birthday, Wedding or Retirement Celebration
  • Underwater Models for their portfolio

Just a bit of information about my water skills…..I swam my whole life, competing as a Varsity Swimmer in High School and Synchronized Swimming, and I have been scuba diving for 30 plus years – loving every moment underwater.  I see beauty underwater and when a person submerges, that beauty becomes very unique and captivating.


Underwater Digital Collections

All images are professionally processed, high resolution digital files.  Free Web sized images of purchased images are delivered digitally. A flash drive is provided upon request.  A print release is included.

Processing underwater images takes three times the amount of time as compared to land images due to particle’s in the water, color correction among other issues.  I have had a lot of practice at processing underwater images, both fish, coral and people.

Three Digital…..$200
3 high resolution digitals

Basic Digital…..$350
6 high resolution digitals

Signature Gallery…..$550

Lori’s dream is to create images you will forever look upon and remember this time in your life.  Think of all photographs as heirlooms, forever gazed upon and passed down through generations. With this being said, please communicate any issues or difficulties you are having with Lori or life in general.  We want you to not only be pleased but relaxed and confident that the money you are spending is worth every cent.
