Hi, I am Lura Lee, I am a woman with a passion for catching images in time that hold memories. I am not the typical department store portrait maker, and really hope to be able to show you that! I focus on creating pieces of art for you to cherish and share. I began adventuring towards being a photographer in 2007 reading every book, website, blog or forum I could get to learning how to best capture moments and what creates the different feelings within a photo. I worked in a studio in Cape Girardeau Missouri for 2 years and worked on studio lighting and effects the entire time I was there. Working in the studio was not for me though! I LOVE natural light, indoors or outdoors! I hated seeing how uncomfortable everyone is in front of studio lights. It showed in my work and in my final products. It showed in the customers expressions. I decided that studio lights, while handy, were not going to be used by me unless absolutely necessary. In late 2010 I moved back to my hometown in Sonoma County California where we are constantly surrounded by beauty. I love adventuring with my camera. I have access to private properties here that are beautiful and I also would love it if you would join me.
