About Charming Hearts Photography

Hello all! My name is Lori Benson and I live in Centralia, Missouri (just 20 minutes northeast of Columbia, Missouri).

I’m so excited that you are thinking about booking a photography session with me, and I can’t wait to chat with you about your vision and goals for your session. 

In the meantime, here is a bit about myself and help you get to know me a little!

I specialize in wedding, engagement, family, senior and newborn sessions. I'm originally from Mid-Missouri, moved away to the big city for several years, but came back home. I'm married to the love of my life and a Momma to two wonderful kids.


I love to read and write romance novels! Love! Love! Love romance! And I do have a few published. I'm for both dogs and cats, those wonderful furry babies. Chocolate with peanuts in a candy bar, M&M, or clusters are a must. And I'm an Emergency Disaster Services volunteer. My passion for photography is matched by my passion to help others.
