Introduction: Hi, I'm Lori Cardwell, an Indianapolis based Portrait Photographer. I focus on magazine style portraits for people that want to share quality legacy images for generations to come! I also love creating branding and headshot portraits for professionals and businesses who want to stand above the rest in their market. My mission is to deliver the ultimate portrait experience for everyone, of all ages and sizes, to realize their true beauty and have photographs that they look and feel amazing in. My process... 1 - CONSULTATION - What style do you like? What clothes do you want to wear? How do you plan on using the images? We will work together to create a custom plan and mood board for your special photo session. An additional consult with my wardrobe stylist will be scheduled 1-2 weeks before your session. 2 - HAIR AND MAKEUP - I cannot emphasize enough the importance of professional hair and makeup. I work with the top stylists and makeup artists in the Indianapolis area to guarantee your portraits are absolutely stunning and will turn heads! 3 - PHOTO SESSION - I will photograph you like we are shooting the cover of a magazine. Average session takes 3 hours with hair and makeup. 4 - PHOTO SELECTION - We review your images. You make your selections. Pricing is per image. What you buy is completely up to you. We create beautiful quality artwork. After editing is completed, the final images are delivered to you via online gallery link (or prints are delivered to your home if selected). ------------------------------ PLEASE NOTE: Sessions are booked out 2 weeks in advance - minimum. I am not typically available to schedule sessions less than 2 weeks out. EXCEPT for a standard headshot without hair and makeup services, I can accommodate a shorter timeline. To get better style and quality out of your portraits, adequate time for planning must be factored in. I do NOT do family portraits at parks or other various locations. All sessions are scheduled in studio where I do have a wooded/park-like outdoor area as well. Also I do NOT schedule sessions on the weekends. All sessions are scheduled during the week. Please do not request any weekend dates as I am not available. Thank you!

My family first worked with Lori Cardwell Photography in December 2019 when she took family photos, including our 6 year old adopted son, with Santa and Mrs. Claus. The photos were outstanding! As a surprise to us, she enlarged our son's head shot from a group picture. The artistry, the magic, the innocence of our son shows like a beacon. This picture is priceless! We are forever grateful to Lori Cardwell for creating this forever memory!I then hired Lori to photograph my business portrait. I hate having my picture taken, but Lori was so reassuring and patient. Within a very short time, she captured six portraits that I loved. I truly couldn't believe it was I in the photos! Again, she used her magic and artistry with the camera!My family is going to do another photo shoot this fall to create an album that will feature our now-8 year old son. Thank you, Lori, for capturing our lives in your portraits. We love you!

Lori has a warm engaging personality. She is very professional in her approach to her work. She did my first professional headshot. She has a great sense of humor and took the time to ensure that I was at ease with the shoot. She explained what she was doing each step of the way. Ive received multiple positive comments about my photos. I highly recommend Lori Cardwell Photography!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I always start with either an in person/ phone/ zoom consultation so I can learn more about how they want to be photographed, how will the photos be used, their style and preferences. Each session is custom tailored for each person, because each person has their own story to be told.
