I am Lani Palmer, the LMTP behind LMTPhotography. I’ve been married to my husband Jon since 2004 after returning from student teaching in China. We have six kids together (yes, they are all biologically ours, all singles). Our life is a little bit crazy and a whole lot of adventure and fun! I love all things craft and art, specifically watercolors and anything I can make with my Cricut Maker. I love the challenge of learning new things!
I fell in love with photography when I was teaching in China. My eyes were opened to a world of beautiful faces and incredible art as I roamed the streets and markets of Shanghai. I took pictures of every new and exciting detail and scene to help me remember my time there when I returned home.
Photography has the amazing power to capture the memories we want to remember forever. Photographs never change, even when the people in them do. My family lost my brother-in-law at a young age shortly after I returned from China. All we have left of him are the memories through our pictures. I wish we had more pictures of all of us together to show my kids the love and laughs we shared. Losing him motivated me to be a better memory creator for my family, and it fuels my passion for creating beautiful, timeless images that capture smiles and spirit.
My goal as a photographer is to thrill you with gorgeous heirloom art that will bless your family with smiles for generations. I want to make you feel completely prepared before your session, comfortable in front of my camera, and confident throughout the entire process. Every person, every family has a story to tell, and I love to tell those stories in my pictures!
Thanks for stopping by! I would be so honored to have the opportunity to capture your little moments as lasting memories!
