Hello! I am Lori Best, a born and raised Oregonian, and a photographer in Happy Valley, Oregon. I grew up in the small town of Boring in a log cabin on a farm and graduated from good old Sandy High School. My husband of 14 years and I have four kids between us, two in their 20’s and two under six.
Photography has always been a passion of mine and while I cherish my family photos lovingly displayed on my walls I have always hated taking them. Photographers are probably not supposed to say that right? Well, I said it. I think photography is supposed to be fun and result in amazing wall worthy images! I work really hard to keep my sessions light and fun for all...even Dads.
It is really all about the experience. I love capturing those genuine smiles and creating memories that make you smile when you look at them. My sessions combine a mixture of those special candid moments between families, silliness, and everyone smile and look at the camera.
