Who...me?

Hi, I'm Larry, a portrait artist and photographic educator. I grew up with a mother who was a serious amateur photographer. I borrowed her camera one day and never returned it.

My goal is to elevate the portrait experience. From the process itself to the unveiling of the final masterpiece, I want it to be remarkable. Photography is one of the few times that you can make clients cry and it is actually a good thing. If you are looking for something that goes above and beyond standard photography, you've come to the right place.

The Portrait Experience

To paraphrase John Ruskin, there will always be someone who can do it a little worse and a little cheaper. My goal is to take that in the other direction. I don't do fast food photography. There is no Portrait Happy Meal. Our studio is all about a personalized experience for each client.

  • Together we plan and design the perfect image.
  • No-stress portrait session with no time restrictions. We stop when we have the image!
  • Personalized, guided image viewing and order consultation
  • Images digitally enhanced by a Master Artist and meticulously printed to get the perfect portraitPersonalized, guided image viewing and order consultation

What others say

A good subject/photographer relationship is critical for a good portrait.  For me to tell someone's story, I have to first KNOW their story.  An outgoing subject and a shy subject are going to approach the session very differently and it is my job to create the most enjoyable experience possible.  That's the secret to getting images that make people smile.

Larry has been taking photos for our family for 10+ years. The process of working with Larry is fabulous from start to finish and he has done an amazing job capturing my kids’ personalities as they have grown. We plan on continuing to use Larry as our family photographer for as long as possible.

My daughter (Ashton) loves taking pictures with Larry! He has photographed her from her first birthday to Senior Pictures.,and now he is her first call when she has a great new outfit to show off. Larry does an amazing job of capturing her beautiful personality.

Larry took the most beautiful photos of our family but most importantly our daughter. He captured all her expressions and he knew how to get her to respond to capture the most beautiful pictures!

Larry Lourcey is more than a gifted portrait photographer. He's also an accomplished story-teller. His clients (I'm one!) like that because it's their story being featured in his portraits.
