"Capturing your memories worth sharing..."








Welcome to Desert Petals Photography.  My name is Lori and I am a full-time portrait photographer originally from the midwest but now I call Surprise my home.  I offer both studio and outdoor natural light portrait session options.  Please check out my Session & Cost Info tab for more information about my services offered.  I have a private in-home studio located in Rancho Gabriela in Surprise (off the 303 and Cactus).   


Simple beauty found in every day life fascinates me.  There are few things I enjoy doing more than capturing a moment through my lens AND I love capturing those moments for others to cherish and share with their families & friends too!  My attitude during a session is RELAX and enjoy the experience!


My favorite camera bodies are my Canon 5d Mark III and 70D, but my Canon Rebel was my first DSL camera and is always in my case too!  I have many lens options to choose from to be sure to capture the perfect image (Canon 35 mm, 50 mm, 60 mm, 85 mm, 74-105 mm and 70-200 mm and 50 mm Sigma Art lenses). 


I happily donate my time to help charities or organizations (cancer, veterans, elders, animals, etc) in need of photographer volunteers.  If you know of any organizations in need, please encourage them to contact me. 


I am a registered volunteer photographer with the HeartsApart organization, For All Animals organization and Relay For Life.  My floral images have been published by botanical gardens.  


Please contact me if you have any questions.  Thank you for visiting my website... have a wonderful day!
