The early years.
In her early twenty’s Lori served in the United States Coast Guard. She started her photography journey while stationed in Maine. Living in Maine inspired Lori to begin photographing the beautiful scenery of Maine. After her honorable discharge from the U.S. Coast Guard, Lori enrolled in college and received her Bachelor of Social Work degree. While working as a social worker in the intellectual disability field, she continued to photograph wildlife and nature.
Lori lived near the Outer Banks of North Carolina for over twenty years where she developed her love for bird photography and honed her photography skills by photographing on the Outer Banks. Lori served as the first Regional Coordinator for the Outer Banks Region of the Carolinas’ Nature Photographers Association (CNPA) and was instrumental in setting up and organizing the Outer Banks Region.
Today, Lori focuses on her photography full-time. Lori is a member of the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA).

Pelicans are probably my favorite bird to photograph. Look at the majesty of this bird that she captured as it skims the shoreline.

They include the internet, newsletters, magazines, guides, newspapers, and calendars. Why does she love it?
