About Lori

Welcome to Lori A. Seals Photography & Boutique!

My name is Lori and I am the owner and photographer here at Lori A. Seals Photography & Boutique. In addition to my lifelong LOVE of photography, I am also a wife and mother of 2 beautiful children.

I am a Professional Photographer that offers studio and location photography. I specialize in Family Portraits, Maternity, Newborn/Babies, Children, Pets, High School Seniors, Engagements, Professional and Corporate Groups and Headshots.

We love our town and that is why we decided to purchase a beautiful 2 story building in the heart of it. Our beautiful photography studio is located on the square in downtown Monmouth, IL. With each room completely remodeled and renovated, it not only brings a beautiful charm to Monmouth’s downtown district, but will also make each of your Portrait Sessions more unique.

I photograph in a photojournalistic style which allows me more freedom to interact with you and your children, and to capture those true and unique expressions that every child can express in a moment. This also enables me to create a more relaxed environment for you, allowing your portraits to reflect your own personality more freely.

Photography is a true passion of mine and I take pride in capturing those special moments in your life. I truly believe that every stage of life is beautiful and needs to be captured in order to tell a person’s life story. From beginning as a newborn, growing into an inquisitive child, blossoming into a young adult and then starting a wonderful new family, life is full of beautiful memories that pass us all by…but capturing these special moments is what keeps them alive forever.

Making your memories last a lifetime… Lori A. Seals Photography & Boutique.
