Family Portrait session Reviews

✭✭✭✭✭”Lorin was a pleasure to work with.  He made the photo session enjoyable and photos are amazing!  We couldn’t be happier”  John and Renee, Anaheim Hills


✭✭✭✭✭”Lorin captured our children’s personalities in beautiful photographs.  He made the photo session quick and fun, and kept the kids engaged so we were able to capture natural smiles from them”  Sue King


✭✭✭✭✭”My husband and I have always dreamed of a sunset, beach photo.  Lorin’s work is the answer to our dreams.  He works with you to ensure that you are comfortable and relaxed.  More importantly, he works to ensure that your individual personality traits are part of the photos.  Our photographs are amazing.  We will treasure these for years to come.”  Gail M  Long Beach


✭✭✭✭✭”My wife and I became acquainted with Lorin Backe photography through a charity auction purchase we had made.  Scheduling our photo session was easy, convenient and we looked forward to the appointment.  As we were familiar with the location, meeting Lorin was no problem, we introduced ourselves and moved downed to the beach on what was a beautiful Southern California evening.  Lorin was well prepared and knew what he wanted to accomplish.  He had us in several posed positions with different backgrounds and anticipated lighting changes, to get the most out of the session.  He was very confident that we would be happy with the results  and he was so very right.  When we met later the same week to review the photos at his studio, he was organized and walked us through an organized process  to help us choose the shots we liked most.
The next time we met him was to view the finished product and we were indeed pleased; but it’s after a close friend of ours commented that Lorin “caught the best of of both of us” in his work that prompted us to provide this review.” Steve H.  Orange


✭✭✭✭✭”Lorin was great to work with during my session on the beach! I felt comfortable and so did my dog 🙂  It was fun and he took a lot of great photos. I purchased a package that included a large framed photo and was surprised to see that he had a really good selection of frames at a competitive price. The end products were fantastic and I am very pleased with the moments he captured. I strongly recommend Lorin.”  Sophia K. Ladera Ranch

✭✭✭✭✭”We had our family portrait taken by Lorin. We were very happy with the quality of the work he did for us. Lorin is meticulous from the photo session to the final photoshopping and refining of the pictures. Unlike some previous professional photographers we had tried, Lorin is extremely picky about lighting and had us arrive to the beach (he specializes in beach settings) at a specific time to catch the best light and didn’t start shooting pictures until he thought the light was perfect.  Considering we had two small children in freezing cold weather, he was very patient and kept readjusting the positions of our bodies.  His attention to body position really makes a difference in how the shot comes out. All this perfectionism means that he doesn’t take hundreds of shots but rather a few dozen – but since his shots are really good, you don’t have to spend hours sifting through hundreds of photos either!  He was incredibly detail oriented about the airbrushing techniques so that we looked picture perfect and he also does the custom framing himself too. He’s not cheap but you will be very happy with your portrait.” Eatzi M. Orange county


✭✭✭✭✭”I have received so many compliments on my pictures…other photographers just pale in comparison to your pictures. We appreciated the experience.”  Terese I.  Newport Beach

✭✭✭✭✭”I am absolutely beyond thrilled-my husband and I just love them.  It captures my kids so clearly-I love the background and the crispness of the sand and details.  I am so glad I got the big one, it is just spectacular!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!  You do great work.  Stacey H.  Riverside


✭✭✭✭✭” We put the picture above the fireplace and it looks stunning-we took the other one down.  Your’s looks great-it’s all good!  It just looks wonderful.  Valerie P.  Laguna Hills

✭✭✭✭✭Our whole family was very hesitant about using a professional photographer but as soon as we met Lorin Backe we were all very pleased we choose him! He was very punctual in returning calls, texts, and e-mails. He is very friendly and someone you feel like you have known for years when meeting him. He is a true professional, whom is very knowledgeable about photography and wasn’t pushy on selling you more pictures than what you wanted. He is someone we will now use every year to take our family pictures and we are thankful we found him!   Julie G.  San Clemente


✭✭✭✭✭ “Thanks so very much for capturing our family in this light!  Your professional eye allowed our personalities to come through into pictures.  What a talent.  Can’t tell you how much we love these pictures-our portrait is absolute perfection.”
