Behind the Camera
Hello! Thank you so much for stopping by! My name is Loana and I am from Cabo Rojo, Puerto Rico. I moved to Lancaster Pennsylvania in 2000. I started my career as a cosmetologist back in 2000, but my passion for art and beauty can be traced back to my childhood. As a young girl I would spend hours drawing my ideas for fashion and hair styles or doing hair and makeup on my Barbie and baby dolls. Photography was something I never put too much thought into until my first child was born. As with any mother, my desire for lasting memories inspired me to pick up a camera. It was my kids grandmother who first notice that there could be something more for me in this platform than just family portraits. She would constantly try to convince me to pursue it more and more, but it wasn't till after my second child that she would provide me with my first DSLR digital camera. This simple act of kindness would open doors of possibilities for me I had never imagined or dreamed of before.
What started as simple family portraits has grown into a love and a passion for capturing those magical moments. It's that same love and passion that started LMP photography. And as I continue to grow and evolve as a photographer I will strive to find unique ways to capture that magical spark in each person I photograph. That's why out of all the sessions I do, the Before & After sessions is one of my favorites. The session includes beauty enhancing makeup and hair make over, followed by an all out photo session that lets your inner beauty shine through. And another thing that makes it so special to me is that it allows me to use both my cosmetology back ground and my love for photography to provide you with a chance to experience your inner beauty like you never thought possible. And the end result is memories that will last forever.
