Welcome to my website!
My name is Lora Scantling! I have had a love for photography since I was a little girl! Every time my mom asked me what I wanted from the store it was always a disposable camera and it would take me just a few days of setting up my stuffed animals, posing my friends, or finding perfect sunsets and I would run to her begging her to develop the images so I could see what they looked like! over the years My love for photography grew but it wasn't until my first daughter was born that I finally started to build my talent. Within a few months of taking courses, buying a lighting kit, and setting up a studio in my living room I quit my job at the hospital and started doing photography full time!
I am a member of PPA (Professional Photographers of America) and learned photography from NYIP (New York Institute of Photography) I have been published several times through social and news media sites for multiple work. I have been featured on the Today show, huffington post, cosmo, yahoo, Inspire fine art magazine, in touch, msn, and many many more!
I have the most loving and awesome husband in the world (Kevin) who I met and started dating in 2000 and we married in 2004! We have two gorgeous daughters who are my whole world! Kennedy was born in 2006 and Camdyn was born in 2009! I also have 2 fur babies, Deeda (my sweet old white cat) and Emmy (my wild little black chihuahua puppy)!

Are you a photographer who wants to learn more about newborn photography?
I offer newborn mentoring starting at $1500.
Learn how to prep, pose, wrap, transition, and soothe newborns and newborn safety. You will also learn tips and tricks to help you have a successful newborn portrait session (how to prepare ahead of time, how parents should prepare, and things to do during the session as well!) I will teach you how to build sets, how to create beautiful lighting specifically for newborn skin and poses, and help you build confidence when handling these precious miracles! I will teach you how to have quicker more successful sessions so you are not spending 3 or 4 hours on one newborn and only coming out with a few good images. I offer hands on experience. Mentoring takes place in my studio in Yukon.
A peek at my studio!
I try to keep my studio very calming and relaxing so that when children walk in they are instantly comfortable. In my first room I have a lobby area, a newborn station, A high key white stage . In the middle room I have numerous set ups that I change out every 3-4 weeks, areas for individualized sets, and also some of my large drops that I use for family sets on the roller. In the back I have a prop room that is packed like sardines full of stuff to help me be creative for each session (only half of the room is pictured) and then my bathroom of course!
