Welcome! I am an Atlanta based photographer and the owner of Jolie Loren Photography.
I specialize in unobtrusive lifestyle, family and music photography, as well as natural setting specialty portraits. I love capturing and sharing visual stories~ revealing the essence of people’s personalities, emotions, relationships and music through authentic, organic moments. Whether I’m working with newborns, families, couples, artists/bands, or at weddings, events, concerts, festivals, etc., I strive to always make each of my sessions, unique, personal, creative, fun… and at times random/obscure is perfect for the moment.
I live right outside the city of Atlanta with my amazing Husband, Mike (better known just as: “Rizzi”) and our sweet, and way too smart puppy, Ringo. Mike is a drummer/singer/song-writer for several bands/projects. I’ve been very fortunate to work closely with all of them as well as many other artists in the music industry. I also have THE most awesome and beautiful "bonus-son" (his new term for step-Mom), Kaden. All three of these very special souls rock my world every day, with laughter, love and LOTS of fun.
I worked as a Professional High School Counselor for 15 years, and although I truly loved working with the kids and their families, I decided it was time to follow my other life-long passion, Photography. I've been obsessed with and taking pictures since the mid 90's. Six years ago, I started my own business so I could focus on my art full time. (Three weeks into this incredible change, I met my husband, so I definitely think it was the right move!) I love that I'm still able to work with kids and their families, but I am also able to specialize in music, bands & concert photography, my other passion. (What can I say, I have a lot of things I adore!! :) I'm so happy I get to do what I love every single day and have been so fortunate with the clientele I've work with, many who have become life-long friends.
I truly want my pictures to make people feel something. It is my genuine intention for you to want to look at a picture for much longer than the second it took when it actually happened… to honor the truth of that moment.
Please contact me for details on how I can help you capture images or video for your event, family, concert, album/cd release/EPK, fundraiser, boudoir, celebration, etc. I capture and love it all!
