Lorri Maynard

Lorri is a native Oregonian and has loved photography since the age of nine. It was then that she got her first point and shoot camera. Lorri graduated from Gresham High School and went onto Portland State University. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Arts & Letters in 1994. She studied classical vocal music and journalism. After college, she spent some time abroad in Russia, Greece and Italy. She spent the longest time in Russia and Greece with being in Russia on 4 different trips and Greece 3 different trips. While in Russia, she worked as a Christian missionary in the schools, orphanages, hospitals and churches.

Lorri worked as an insurance analyst for over 14 years in the Portland area. While she liked her job in the insurance industry, her passion and dream job was photography. In early 2012, she was unexpectedly laid off of her insurance job and decided at that point that she would learn how her new camera worked, which was given to her as a gift from her husband a few months earlier. In January 2013 she officially started her photography business, Prairie Blossom Photography, and has specialized in portrait, groups and Fine Art images ever since. She is often asked, "What type of camera do you use?" She replies, "It's not the camera that made the nice photograph, but rather, the artist making the photo". Photography is art, the camera is simply an instrument and an image is made by the artist, not the camera.
