Then, now, and forever, photography is the improbable scientific capture of light onto cellulose or into pixel values, a technical endeavor that requires exactitude on the part of the photographer. Measuring, bouncing, reflecting, shading: all precision activities that are part of a photographer's arsenal.
But sometimes, you just want to get a little loose.
No matter how carefully planned a Lomo photograph might be, the following could occur: light leaks. Stray starbursts. Glowing ghosts, floating breezily through the background. Have we mentioned how charmed we are?
Lomography, the international headquarters for analogue photography, embraces the unexpected, the joyful jolt you get when your photograph develops into a bold, saturated surprise. Lomo's commitment to film means that you'll never know exactly what you shot until you process the photograph; creative experimentation is all the fun.

I secretly bought a mail-order 35mm camera when I was 15, and took lots of ordinary photos of animals and nature for several years. Although I majored in art and studied photography in college, my career started in marketing and advertising, from the client service end. Then I had the most beautiful baby, found my old camera and realized how much I love photographing people.
Hi! Tell us a little bit about yourself. What was your road like to becoming a photographer?
Hello! I am a portrait photographer based south of Boston, MA. My passion is capturing mothers and their growing families. Maternity and newborn portraits are the foundation of my business, and I also capture baby milestones, children, and families. Fun fact: I returned the diamond earrings my husband bought me for our first Christmas as a married couple to buy a digital camera.
