Here, we thrive on raw emotion, warm colors and true stories. 

If you're into going off the beaten path, getting your shoes a little muddy, belly laughs and adventuring, then we will get along just fine. I have always been a sucker for the unconventional. I'm all about people, especially those who march to the beat of their own drum. The lovers, the dreamers, the inventors, the makers and the crazy big thinkers, those are my tribe. I am not afraid of big feelings, and I thrive on raw emotion, warm colors and true stories. These things all come together to shape an experience unlike any other. From start to finish, I vow to be fully present and intentional. Your story is a big deal to me, and I'm here to tell it the right way- with love, passion, commitment  and attention to detail. My heart is in this for real.   If this sounds like your cup of tea (or coffee- you do you, boo), then I'm your gal. I can't wait to meet you. 

“Loren did an amazing job with both our engagement and wedding photos! She got the images back to us in a timely manner and they were GORGEOUS! Her photo prompts create natural-looking images. 10/10 would recommend to a friend.”

“I cannot recommend Homeward Photo Co. enough! I have worked with Loren on 4 separate occasions and each time has been magic. Loren has an incredible ability to make you feel totally comfortable and like your truest self (which is hard during a photo shoot!!!!). Furthermore, her final product are consistently stunning. Thank you so much for all of your wonderful work!”

“Loren did an in-home lifestyle session for me and my husband and did an amazing job! She perfectly encapsulated us as a couple and our first home together. I love how comfortable she made us feel in front of the camera and directed us so that we looked natural in the images versus posed. I definitely recommend her for all of your photography needs!”

“Loren did my son’s 1 year photos, our family photos, and my daughter’s newborn photos and every time she was absolutely amazing! She’s so kind, encouraging, and understanding of what you want. She brings such a unique and beautiful perspective into every shoot, I highly recommend her for whatever your photography needs may be!”

“Loren photographed my wedding in October 2018 and she was AMAZING. She is kind, professional, talented, and will genuinely add to anyone's wedding day. I cannot recommend her highly enough! I'd be happy to share my BEAUTIFUL wedding photos for all to see!”

“Loren's images are as golden as her heart. I think that's because she puts her whole heart into her work & it shows! She's a joy & reassuring to be around & that's so important for creating an experience where quality images are captured for future heart-warming memories. I also happen to be a venue owner, so I share this from both a personal & an industry perspective!”
