Hi. I'm Lori, the creative behind the camera and floral shears. I am rooted in Bakersfield, California with a deep love for the every day, the California sun, and life on the farm.
Simplee Focused became my heart and mission to capture the moments that flee with time so quickly. I've always felt a sense of simplistic, yet majestic honesty from those who graze our California farms. The time between a person and her horse is a moment of stillness that is nearly unexplainable unless you've experience that kind of quietness, that kind of connection. ...and that's what I want to capture in my work. My photography takes on the task of freezing those moments of stillness. Those moments of quietness. Your every day is your every day, understandably. You are molding your life. From the application of little shoes, the hustle of daily farm chores, the big and small achievements and moments, the baking scene between you and your little ones, the backyard running as the sun sets. Those are the moments that you will reminisce about. Those are the moments I want to capture.
In addition to lifestyle photography, I have developed a love for styling the scenes of the every day though floral designs. You may find me arranging a vase of wildflowers to stage on your table scape prior to capturing that kitchen baking scene. You'll hear my heart skip a beat as I design and create tablescape florals for your backyard soirée as you host your nearest and dearest over life's newest celebration.
Life happens, that is a sure bet. I am here to capture the beauty and grace found daily if you look just close enough. Let's talk, new friend.
