ABOUT MY DAY TO DAY
Hey! I’m Lori and I’m the photographer behind Lori Brown Photography. A little about me… I’m a mom of two hilarious kids with ADHD. Sometimes I’m telling them to stop doing headstands on the couch or terrorizing the dog. Sometimes I’m slamming back 5 Starbucks hot chocolates a day and trying to sneak in a nap. I regularly hide in the bathroom eating fruit-by-the-foot and I watch a lot of really crappy Hallmark chick flicks. You can usually find me hiding from door-to-door salesmen in my PJ’s. Mostly, I’m photographing families and couples throughout BC!
I lost my grandfather a few months after my son was born, and I am constantly trying to keep his memory alive. My childhood was made brighter by him in times of despair and trauma. My grandfather would have tea parties with me in tiny tea cups at a tiny table (he was 6’2 or so), and the tea would be 80% sugar, 10% milk, and 10% tea. He taught me how to drive a tractor with a trailer by having me reverse on the farm between two giant trash cans. He helped me buy my first car and drive a stick shift. On one of his last days on earth he wanted to spend it with his family, and in his workshop sitting on his tractor. The small moments of visiting my grandparents meant Micky Mouse pancakes in the morning and shopping at the feed lot.
It’s these memories from my childhood that I don’t have documented in photographs. To share with my own children and for them to share with their children. I NEED to preserve these memories for families. I grew up so fast, and so have my children, and too will yours.
If you see value in taking the time to have memories made for your kids, and your kids’ kids, then we should definitely connect! Life is full of moments big or small. Quietly playing on the iPad or going to the beach with the kids. Doing laundry or making Micky Mouse pancakes. I am here for you, and I’d love to come make the same types of photographs for your family that I’ve been missing. I’m fun, funny, and I’ll grow to be a part of your family.
