It's nice to meet you, I'm Lorie Tannourji. I live in Southern California with our family of 5 and our Labradoodle.
My journey as a photographer began when I was a teenager, during the time of the Drive Thru Fotomax Booth. I waited eagerly for what seemed an eternity to see our silly slumber party and summer vacation photos, with hopes of one good "in the moment" shot on a film of 24 prints. In 2002, my husband and I hired a photojournalist from the Boston Globe to capture and document our wedding in New Hampshire. He did just that. No wedding album, rather a box of raw negatives and prints of our favorites, nothing posed, "in the moment" shots. As you can see, I have snapped candid photos of every moment during my children's youth. I love taking pictures so much that I began capturing family photographs for friends, and what started as a hobby became my passion and a small business. My favorite shots from family photography sessions have always been the unposed shots. I love getting to know each family and capture their story "in the moment". For 2023, I have decided to refocus my efforts towards Family Reportage Photography. No poses. No stressful outfit picking. Just you and your family, in your home, as you are, beautifully you. Let's go to your favorite hang out spots, is it the beach or maybe Disneyland? I hope you will entrust me to capture your family story, in the moment. Let's talk - 562-209-3117
