Lori K Sapio Photography
I discovered photography at the age of 13 and have not looked back. It's my profession, my hobby, my passion
and a piece of me that has grown ever since. I received my BFA in photography from NIU in 1997,
and had the pleasure to work under some of the Masters of photography shortly after.
I became a first time Mom to my beautiful daughter Viola Marie on 4/7/13.... a second time Mom on 5/28/15 to Oona Abigail.
I loved photographing children before, but the love has now grown since they came into our lives.
My style has been described as photojournalistic, though I like to document and capture
the creation of a moment, but also enjoy having to direct or produce it. I feel my body of work is eclectic,
and I'm able to adapt to any environment or situation with enjoyment because
every snap of the shutter I take, captures a single moment in time.
I am available for portraiture, headshots, family portraits, newborn portraiture,
school portraits, maternity photos, engagement photos and other ideas you wish to create.
Please contact me to discuss your needs and I can give you a quote.
I do not feel the internet completely represents my work, however the following pages should
give you “a glimpse” into my world and what I can capture.

My work has been shown in 15 galleries in the Midwest, and published in numerous publications.
My studio is located in the West Town neighborhood of Chicago. I am also available to shoot on location...
