That all changed the moment Lorena stepped behind a camera. There, Lorena has found not only something she's good at, but something she loves to do. She turned this long-lost calling into Mia G Photography, where she captures special moments as they happen instead of leaving them to languish alone as memories. Family portraits and weddings are Lorena's bread and butter, although she's also adept at uncovering beauty in architectural, maternity, and senior shoots.

Operated by an ARDMS ultrasound technologist, My Little Me helps expectant parents to bond with babies in the womb with 3-D/4-D ultrasounds. The center's GE Voluson 730 Pro system uses the same audio waves produced by 2-D ultrasound machines, then builds the information collected into a three-dimensional image of the babies-to-be kicking, playing, and sucking thumbs in utero. After clients obtain a medical diagnostic ultrasound from their health-care provider, My Little Me helps with gender determination, highlighting the baby's facial features. Images are emblazoned onto USB drives and DVDs, and audio from the child’s heartbeat can be forever stored on one of My Little Me’s plush heart beat animals.
