The Lorei Portraits Story          

It all began in a small room in a small house on a small street in Erie, PA. The year was 1990. I had been an ad man, and a school photographer. I was in grad school, hoping to write the great American novel and needed a way to support my growing family. On a lark, and with little to show, I walked into the P.R. office at Gannon U. and they gave me one small assignment. I proved I had an eye for composition and what makes a beautiful image. Lorei Portraits was born. 

We’re portrait artists. We specialize in families, children, h.s. seniors and individuals. Our goal is to create stunning and beautiful portraits that you’ll have on your walls for thirty years and beyond.  Every portrait we create is individually hand-finished, retouched, and custom printed. Each one, large or small, is a work of art.

Thousands of families have trusted their most important portraits to us. Welcome to Lorei Portraits where every face is beautiful.
