Loving Furmum

“In addition to doing amazing work and really capturing the personality of our pup, Lori was incredibly easy to work with and responsive. We even got “work in progress” photos along the way. Highly recommend!”

Adoring Mommy


From our baby beginnings, we love to look at faces. What we see can comfort and inspire us.

My art sets out to capture the emotions and expressions of faces we love, especially faces that are no longer with us, or furry friends that make us smile. I want to offer a Presence, so that people may always feel the love in sight of their portrait.



My studio is located in Stoneham, Massachusetts
