You can count my four stars as five.
I worked for several years with Lora in a studio. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because I haven't worked with her since she became an independent business owner.
Lora is one of the best portrait photographers that I have ever worked with. She is 100% present with her clients. She truly hears and understands them. And as a result, clients are often astonished that she is able to capture the genuine expressions that they have never been able to capture themselves.
Were Lora really excels in comparison to other photographers is with difficult children or families. I can't recall an unsuccessful shoot with Lora in the years I worked with her. Even when it is difficult, Lora happily sticks with her client to produce brilliant results.
If you want genuine smiles, the ones where you feel like the person is looking right in your eyes, and you can't help but smile back... I would choose Lora above any other photographer I know. (Just for a point of reference, I know professional photographers that work for the biggest media outlets and largest publications... I'd still choose Lora.)

Lora is not only professional, she is fun and passionate about what she does. I discovered Lora when looking at a friend's photos of her first newborn. The pictures really captured the joy the parents' were experiencing at that moment and also the little cute characteristics of a newborn. The photos were also really cute and fun with the use of props and different backgrounds. I decided to use Lora for my maternity photos as a test to see how we liked her. We were blown away by how fun and excited Lora was all the way to the photos she edited and provided. We have since taken newborn photos and 9 month photos of our son with her and am in the midst of scheduling our 1-year photos with her. Not to mention, I have, and will continue to refer Lora and her services to friends, family and colleagues. With all the photographers in this area, it is important to connect with the person who is trying to capture your and your family's personality and Lora does that better than anyone! :)See MoreRead Less"

Lora is an amazing photographer. She takes her time while she is taking pictures. She gets so excited when she captures a great shot. She makes you feel so comfortable while she is taking your picture. My son is not a big fan of having his picture taken, and Lora was great with making him cooperate. She says funny things and that makes the kids laugh hysterically! I felt like we were going for a party and and not a photo shoot! The pictures she took of my kids last summer became my Christmas Card. I have had other photographers take my kids pictures, and they turned out fine. It was the experience while Lora is taking the pictures that you remember! It is just fun! While you are looking at the pictures she took, you can pinpoint what she said to make you laugh or smile to capture that perfect shot. She goes above and beyond while taking pictures. Her exuberant personality is what keeps you at ease. The entire experience is professional along with enjoyable!See MoreRead Less"

Oh my gosh, I seriously don't even know where to begin with describing how wonderful Lora is!!! I mean there is the fact that she is so beyond talented and takes amazing pictures that capture every smile, every laugh, and anything you need captured on camera. She is very professional but at the same time her photoshoots are super fun and energetic. You can really see how passionate she is about photography from how happy she looks behind her camera. I have had the joy of knowing Lora for a long time and I promise I'm not being biased for this review. She is just that good!!! =] Lora took my senior pictures and I absolutely loved every single one of the pictures we ended up with. We spent pretty much the whole day together, driving around, finding perfect places to take pictures, we had fun, laughed, and she made me feel comfortable behind the camera (to be totally honest I almost forgot the camera was even there)!See MoreRead Less"

I met Lora almost 2 years ago, our two boys were in the same class. From the very first day walking into BUMP, the first smile and morning I received was from Lora. She helped me feel more comfortable with her warm smile and amazing humor. Lora is an exceptional person. Loving, caring, EXTREMELY FUNNY, never ever a dull moment when in her presence. The reason SHE STANDS out is the fact that she puts her heart and soul into EVERY SHOOT! I have never met anyone else that comes close to what she brings into everything she does in life. I have yet to come across any other professional like her. She truly is one of a kind. So if you are looking for AMAZING photos, a wonderful experience with a photographer with CLASS, SPUNK, and a personality like no one else..... Lora is the one for you. I guarantee that by the end of the shoot you will feel like you've known this women forever.See MoreRead Less"

Lora's creativity and photographic expertise are only rivaled by her amazing personality. She can find humor in any situation which puts clients at ease...making for very natural and beautiful photos. Her photos are the best.. and her photo sessions are thoroughly enjoyable. She is able to capture moments like no one else. She photographed our baseball team and was able to get perfect shots as the bat made contact with the ball. She also photographed my son's Tae Kwon Do birthday party and literally captured his foot going through the board as it broke in two. Though she specializes in newborn and maternity shoots, her family shots, weddings, parties, and sports photography are also noteworthy . I would highly recommend Lora Mote for any photographic needs you or your friends and family have.See MoreRead Less"

Lora Mote is one of the best photographers I know. I tell people about her all of the time. Beyond being very professional, she is very energetic, with a great sense of humor, and is a perfectionist to say the least. Her eye, attention to detail, and ability to capture the slightest little things in the moment is incredible. Photography is not just her occupation it is her vocation. It doesn't take long to see that Lora is very passionate about her work. Whether you live in DC, Maryland, Northern, VA, and beyond, Lora is clearly on of the best. Maternity, newborns, gradualtion, weddings, etc...You can't go wrong with Lora Mote Photography. I could brag about her all day but her work TRULY speaks for her. Make sure you check out you website to see her portfolio of work.See MoreRead Less"

I scheduled a session with Lora to do some publicity headshots. I typically do not enjoy having photos taken so I was not in the best frame of mind when I arrived. Lora was so awesome to work with. She has such a friendly, easy demeanor, she immediately made me feel comfortable. She had many great ideas for backgrounds, poses, etc. Things that I would have never thought of. She really managed to bring the best out in me, and it truly shows in the finished product!

I have sat through numerous photo sessions but this is the first time that I have ever had such a positive, productive and casual experience. Lora was so good at making everything perfect! When I need photos done again, Lora will be the person I contact! I have also referred others to her as well.

Where do I begin to recommend Lora? We have used her several times and have another session planned already. Lora is one of those people you think "why haven't I met you until now?" Every time I have referred her, my friends always tell me how happy they are and that they love her just as much. Her personality and her ability to make my kids happy in a photo shoot is skill enough, let alone her fantastic photography skill and the end result photos. We adore Lora and cannot wait for future sessions with her. If you are looking for good price, great photos and an excellently photography shoot, call Lora. Always call Lora!See MoreRead Less"

Lora is a genius photographer. Her personality, cheerfulness and joy makes working with her such a fun experience that my kids never wanted the photo shoot to end! They were very disappointed that we didn't spend the day taking pictures all over Northern Virginia! Lora is amazing with all ages of children and her camera just seems to find the most amazing, moving images. We had a very difficult time selecting prints to get framed because we just loved so many. Finally a note on Lora, her character is pristine. She is honest, trustworthy, fair and joyful. I refer her to anyone and everyone that will listen!See MoreRead Less"

While I was visiting my daughter in Virginia she had Lora come over for a photo session. Lora came prepared to set up for a variety of settings for my new grandson's pictures. She worked wonderfully, and gently with him as he slept. The ideas she had were very creative and she even incorporated a had I hd crocheted for him. Her easy-going personality and positive manner made it delight to work with her. We have all enjoyed the quality of her work . So much so that my daughter has had her do more photos for other occasions. If I lived nearby i would recommend her to all my friends just like my daughter does.See MoreRead Less"

I found out about Lora from a few friends who also used her for baby and family photos. My family has now done 4 sessions (one new-born, one my immediate family, two with my extended family). We have all been super pleased with the photos!

Lora is so great to work with! My kids love her, and my camera shy 4 year old now asks when "Mommy's silly friend" is coming to take more pictures. I really appreciate her professionalism as well as how open is to ideas from the family during photo shoots. The images are lovely and Lora gets them to us when promised. Highly recommend!See MoreRead Less"

Another photographer in the Vienna, VA-area recommended Lora Mote and we used her for our son's 6-month and 12-month photos. Lora does a fabulous job keeping little ones entertained and smiling for the camera! She does what it takes to get the best shot and is very creative. All of the photos Lora has provided us with are truly super and we love looking back through them now and remembering those special times in our lives. We will be calling on Lora again soon to capture more memories when our son turns 2!See MoreRead Less"

Lora is the best, most personable photographer in the DC metro area! We first found her through a Living Social deal and have used her for every important milestone thereafter: our son's newborn and 1-year-old photos, precious moments between siblings, and family photos for Christmas cards. She makes us laugh and captures the sweetest expressions. After the session, her product is delivered in fun packaging and full of memories to share with family and friends. Call her - you won't be disappointed!See MoreRead Less"

Lora did an amazing job capturing our family. We have four children ages 2-6, and they are not the most cooperative subjects. Our kids were comfortable with Lora immediately and we were able to get wonderful family shots as well as individual shots of each of our children that showcased their individual personalities. We could not have been happier with the images and would recommend her to anyone looking for quality family photos.See MoreRead Less"

Several things come to mind when I think of Lora. She is a great photographer, strong leader, and one of the most sincerest people I have ever met. She was actually my manager at the first photo studio I ever worked at and I have to say I have never seen someone as dedicated to their craft, their customers AND their employees, as Lora was. She is, hands down the best and most isnpiring manager I have ever had.See MoreRead Less"
