Welcome to my Lorie Hall Photography Blog site. I am so very excited about my blog and the opportunity it presents to share my photos, learning and business growth with you. I am married to Chris Hall and we live in Tarkio, MO, which is located in the most northwest corner of Missouri. We are 22 miles south of Iowa and approximately 30 miles east of Nebraska. I am the mother of four children-Melissa, Miranda, Miles and Christina. My two oldest daughters are married. Melissa married Brian Burghardt in 2010 and they live in Kansas City, MO. Miranda married Danny Tubbs in 2008 and they live in Gardner City, KS. My son, Miles, is currently attending Northwest Missouri State University, Maryville, MO, and is the President of the AKL Fraternity. My daughter, Christina, is just beginning high school and has a never-ending passion for dance and tumbling. I am an extremely proud mother and I know that it is that love and pride carried over into each of my photos that is making my photography grow so quickly, as well as, photography is my never-ending passion. It is currently my part-time job. My full-time employment is court clerk. I am the Circuit Clerk and Recorder, an elected position, here in Atchison County which I have been employed with The Great State of Missouri since 1991.
I believe that my true respect and love for photography began when I was in 7th grade, 1976. Our home was destroyed by a fire and we lost everything. I learned that out of all our possessions, the only ones we could not replace were our photos and videos. I still have the images of the photos and videos that we use to share during family times etched in my memory. I am so thankful we took the time to look at them often. My second inspiration was the birth of my precious children. Capturing their first smiles, steps and other precious moments made the camera my constant companion. My final inspiration has been my family and friends. They began asking me to take senior, family and wedding pictures…that’s where my photography career began it’s actual life.
My style of photography is constantly growing and changing. I love natural light photography. It is so very beautiful and is what I strive to capture if at all possible. I shoot indoors, outdoors and on location. I am gaining vast experience in wedding, pregnancy, newborn, family, prom, senior, sports and pet photography daily. If you can dream it, I can capture it. I focus on both traditional and photojournalistic styles of photography. I also use a wide variety of photoshop actions in the editing of photos. I love to use tint color; black and white; black and white with touches of color; and numerous types of other special effects in order to make your photos unique and extremely personal to your preference.
Lorie Hall Photography captures those special moments in time for a lifetime of memories.
