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 to help you get to know me a little!

I specialize in wedding, engagement, family, maternity and high school senior portraits.

  • I married the love of my life February 10, 1996!

  • We are proud parents to a son who is a student at Mizzou and a daughter who's in Middle School.

  • We have two dogs and two cats. Surprise, surprise...they get along perfectly!

  • I love romance novels. I not only read them, but I have some published novels myself.

  • Anything chocolate with peanuts, walnuts, or almonds is a must on my list.

  • I am an emergency disaster services volunteer for The Salvation Army. My passion for photography is matched by my passion to help others. My disaster images as well as other events and articles have been published on their national sites and posted nationally across all social media platforms.

  • I feel incredibly blessed to be able to do photography.
