Portraits - L. Lawrence

Portrait Photography

Over the past 10 years, I have worked with Dayton-area families, helping them preserve precious memories through beautiful, color-saturated portraits that focus on the person, not the background. Contact me today at LouraLawrenceStories@gmail.com, to learn more or set up an appointment.

I have recently expanded my photo equipment to include a home studio, complete with a few backgrounds and props. Clients are welcome and encouraged to bring their own props to personalize portraits.

Custom photo cards, Christmas ornaments, calendars, postcards, Save the Date cards, engagement announcements, wedding favors, and other gifts and cards can be made by myself, per your specifications and ordered via my site for one-stop shopping.

Retainer Fee/Deposit:

A $35-75 deposit to hold your date and time is required up-front. This amount will be applied to your total session cost.

Reshoots:

Loura Lawrence Photo/Developing Focus defines reshoots as photos taken within 3 months (except in the case of infant portraits) of the initial session. If there is a problem with the photos due to photographer or equipment error, the client will incur no charge. If the client is unhappy with the photos for any other reason (such as stylistic reasons), or would like new, additional photos, regular fees will apply.

If you cancel, you will not receive your deposit back. If you need to reschedule, you must notify us within 48 hours before the originally scheduled event, and we will do our best to accommodate you.
