Lori and DeWayne Celebrate 30 Years of Marriage

Lori and DeWayne Celebrate 30 Years of Marriage

WOW – where did time go?  Seems like just yesterday Lori and I were heading off to her Senior prom at SHS and now our daughter, Edie Grace, is a Senior at SHS.  The three of us have had so much fun going through over three decades of pictures sharing stories and memories.  Each picture we selected for our video tells a small but powerful story about our journey.  There is so much to share, so many mountain tops and a few too many valleys.   Our marriage has been a partnership in life, business and parenting.   As we look back, every step along the way helped not only give us purpose, but shaped who we are today.  Individually and together, we are far from perfect.  But each day we try to focus on making a small difference in the lives of our clients, family, friends and community. Lori and I were first attracted physically, but we soon learned that our past was quite similar.  Both of our Mom’s had conceived us in high school and the years that followed left lots of question marks for our future.  We bonded with this commonality and learned quickly that we were much stronger together than apart.   Lori’s Dad loves to tell the story of our first meeting.  He and I were working together and for weeks I had heard stories from him about his beautiful, smart and talented daughter.  Then one evening, feeling sorry for a starving college student, he invited me home for dinner.  When I saw Lori it was love at first sight!  The next day he asked me what I thought of his daughter, I quickly replied sharing with him how beautiful I thought she was and that I planned to make her my wife someday.  We had not even been on a date!  In life, we have always known what we want when we see it and somehow we always figure out a way to get it. This dogged determination has presented so many opportunities for us that it doesn’t even seem real.  We have traveled the world.  Met many of the people we have admired the most and made friends with thousands of you.  We wouldn’t trade a step in this journey. It is so much fun to look back, but what is truly exciting is our look forward to what the future holds for Lori, Edie Grace and I. One thing is for sure, it will continue to be an amazing journey.  Certainly we know that no matter what life holds, the journey is so much better to enjoy with family and friends.  So here is to 30 more! Enjoy this three minute video recap of our past 30 years: Thanks to you for sharing this journey in whatever way God has placed you in our lives.  May you be richly blessed for joining us along the...

Edie Grace SHS Senior and GSU Freshman

Edie Grace SHS Senior and GSU Freshman

Edie Grace’s first day of school this year was the second time in her life that I did not drive her to school.  She began a couple of weeks after most of her classmates because, even though she is technically a senior at SHS, she is taking all of her classes at GSU.  Edie Grace is both a high school senior and college freshman simultaneously.  I knew this time would come, but boy does it make Lori and I feel old…and just a little bit sad. Seems like just yesterday I was putting her on the bus for her first day of kindergarten. We did continue our tradition of having our first day of school image taken together.  Thanks to having a Mom that has spent her career preserving precious memories for others encouraging us to, at the very least, take a quick snapshot we now have a pretty awesome collection of first day images.  These document her growth and maturity and my grey hair, persistent aging and inability to control my weight – especially as I get older. Edie Grace has an exciting year ahead.  Thanks to Georgia’s wonderful “Move On When Ready” (MOWR) program she is fully enrolled at GSU.  She is also looking forward to serving as Vice President of the National Honor Society at Statesboro High and continuing her many community commitments.  Edie Grace is a working girl also.  She is continuing her job at CRI (the “RAC”) on the GSU campus and helping out some at Free Spirit Pottery also. Of course, we are traveling the world creating every imaginable image possible to capture her senior year and this incredible time in her life.  Our favorite stop on her “Lori Grice Senior Portrait journey” so far is Cuba. We are most proud of her “can do” spirit, graceful attitude and giving heart.  Every day with Edie Grace is a wonderful blessing for me and Lori.  It is a journey that never stops surprising us, thrilling us and showing us the power of unconditional love.  We tell her everyday that simply “showing up” is the biggest key to success.  She certainly shows up every day with a passion and vigor to change the world.  Hopefully, this spirit will continue to carry her through this year and for the rest of her life. We hope this school year proves to be another great year for your children and your family also.  Life is a precious gift.  Enjoy every moment of it and celebrate with your children every opportunity you...

Join us in Celebrating Another Birthday With Lori Grice

Join us in Celebrating Another Birthday With Lori Grice

Lori’s Two Favorite Things Today is Lori’s Birthday and we want you to join us in celebrating with her.  This picture is one of my favorites because it combines two of Lori’s greatest loves, photography and our daughter Edie Grace.  There are many more of her “favorite” things captured here also.  Her love to travel and explore new things.  Her incredibly gifted ability to see the beauty of God’s creations most of us would never notice.  The perfect light, the trajectory of the image, the detail of the architecture, the inner beauty of the subject, the emotion of the moment, exposing the windows of your soul, I could go on and on… Her gift is magical.  Her ability to see places and people in extraordinary ways and then transform this perfect vision of them to a canvas so they will forever enjoy this moment in time frozen forever. It is an amazing gift that she, thankfully has been allowed to share with so many of you for one more year. Life Is A Gift:  Treat It As A Gift Every Day Many of you know Lori’s journey though surviving cancer at the age of 33 when Edie Grace was only 14 months old.  It is unimaginable how three simple words can turn your world upside down in seconds: “You Have Cancer”.  Cancer was a valley that consumed us but did not defeat us.  Cancer is a devastatingly scary, horrible, tragic diagnosis.  But it also gives clarity to life.  You are forced to face the fact that life IS terminal.  You have two choices – give up or fight.  Lori chose to fight and she was lucky enough to win. The fact is,  you never really win with Cancer.  Once it grabs you it never lets go.  You are constantly concerned that it will reoccur.  Every little ache or pain, every odd symptom the fear rushes back for just a moment.  Then there is the burden of survivorship.  Understanding why God chose to allow you to survive when so many others were defeated. There have been many times when it would have just been easy to give up and allow cancer to win not just physically but mentally and emotionally also.  But it also inspires you to work harder, to do more, to make a difference in every life you touch.  To dance through life like no one is watching and to share a legacy with others that will touch them so deeply that they are inspired and find the strength to do amazing things. Birthdays Are Special One of Lori’s favorite charities is the American Cancer Society.  They launched a campaign a few years ago that they were the “official sponsor of birthdays“ with the tagline “MORE BIRTHDAYS!!!”  For Lori and millions of others this is completely true.  Because millions of strangers impacted by cancer chose to contribute and support research, Lori and so many, many more people have beat cancer and are beating it as I write this. Birthday’s have always been very special for Lori however for another reason, because her Mom saw to it that they were.  Even in the darkest days of life, when they struggled financially and emotionally – nothing got in the way of “birthday week”.  Lori’s mom was her spirit animal.  She...

Take A selfie in the Lori Grice Fair Booth to Win a Portrait

Take A selfie in the Lori Grice Fair Booth to Win a Portrait

Fair week always brings cooler weather and the first glimpse of fall to Bulloch County annually.  It is also one of Lori Grice’s favorite weeks of the year.  “Life is about creating memories and few things in Bulloch County bring family and friends together for special memories than the fair”, said Lori.  “Going to the fair with my grandparents, Harold and Edith Hutchison, was an annual tradition and includes one of my most cherished memories.  I still wear a hand carved dog necklace that Granddaddy Hutchison purchased for me when I was seven at the fair.  Even though he is no longer here to enjoy the fair with me, this special memory lives on.” Another tradition Lori began nearly three decades ago is her annual fair booth, which allows her to share beautiful portraits her clients have commissioned her to create throughout the year.  One of the families Lori selected to feature this year is the Hugh and Jeanne Anne Marsh family.  “The only gift I have ever asked my family for is a family portrait.  There is nothing I treasure more than my family and I want everyone who enters my home to know where my heart is,” said Jeanne Anne.  “For Christmas, they surprised me with a gift certificate for Lori Grice to create the portrait I have dreamed of for so long.  I began meeting with Lori to start the process.  She is so creative and helped make every step of the process easy.” Lori works with each client to design portraits that match the décor of their home and tell the wonderful story every family has to share.  This commission was no different. “I have known and admired this wonderful family for years.  This family has made so many contributions to our community for generations.  It is in important legacy and story that needs to be shared”, said Lori.  “They selected Salt Crest Cottage for the setting of the portrait.  It was the location where the Marsh’s son Keith married his wife Ryan.  With the location in mind, we worked with them on finding the perfect clothing and choosing a date where they all could come together.” The Marsh family has owned property on Colonels Island for years so that added to the sentimentality of the portrait.  Once the portrait session was complete, Lori reviewed the body of work with Jeanne Marsh and suggested a grouping of portraits to capture each family individually, the grandchildren and the family as a group.  Lori selected the perfect frame molding to match the portraits and their home.  Once finished, Lori and her team will deliver and hang the portraits. “I cried when I saw how beautiful they are and I cried again when Lori asked me to include them in her fair booth”, said Jeanne Anne.  “They are perfect.  Even better than I ever imagined they could be.” If you are looking for the perfect gift for your wife, mom or grandmother, there is no gift they will cherish more than a Lori Grice Portrait.  Gift certificates are available for Christmas, Baby Shower and Birthday gifts.  Lori also has a limited number of portrait sessions available before Christmas, including Thanksgiving week which is a perfect time to commission Lori to create a portrait while everyone is “Home for...

Edie Grace’s first day of school this year was the first time in her life that I did not drive her to school.  She is in 11th grade at SHS which makes her a Junior in High School.  Oh My, where is time going.  She has discovered the new found independence of being 16 and having a car and a driver’s license. We did continue our tradition of having our first day of school snapshot taken together.  Thanks to having a mom that has spent her career preserving precious memories for others encouraging us to at the very least take a quick snapshot, we now have a pretty awesome collection of first day images.  These document her growth and maturity and my grey hair and aging. Edie Grace has an exciting year ahead.  Thanks to Georgia’s wonderful “Move On When Ready” (MOWR) program she is dual enrolled at SHS and GSU.  She is looking forward to serving as a student ambassador for SHS and being a member of the Youth Leadership Bulloch program.  She is also a working girl, starting a job at CRI (the “RAC”) on the GSU campus.

Lori Grice Salutes the Class of 2017 Seniors

Lori salutes the class of 2017 seniors and wish them well as they enter the next stage of their life. “It is a great honor to be selected by a senior to share this important story.  Every senior I photograph is special and it is such a joy to work with them,” said Lori Grice. Lori Grice is known for capturing life’s milestones artistically for her clients.  She focuses on five monumental moments in life that require an investment in professional photography that will be timeless.  One of those important moments is High School Senior Portraits. Senior portraits are some of Lori’s favorite portraits to create.  They allow her to tell an important story in your senior’s life.  “This is often the last chance to tell the individual story for your child.” “Typically, the next season in life to be photographed professionally will be their wedding.  That is an entirely different story to be shared photographically,” said Lori Grice, Master Photographer, Lori Grice Photography. “I choose to photograph a limited number of high school seniors.  This allows me to get to know them and spend the time necessary to learn who they are, what their ambitions are and what is important to them in this season of life.  It is a time to reflect and celebrate.”     Rising 2018 Seniors Now is also the time for rising 2018 seniors who are interested in commissioning Lori to reserve your spot.  Lori limits the total number of seniors she photographs by school.  This allows her work to remain fresh and ensures each senior will have senior portraits that are as unique as they are. Senior portrait commissions begin at $500 and include a design consultation, the session and a credit toward your portrait purchases. Email Lori at info@lorigrice.com or call 912-764-7274 to reserve your spot.  View Lori’s work at www.facebook.com/lori.grice.photo or her website at www.LoriGrice.com...
