My name is Lisa Weingardt and I am so happy you have found me! 

I have always been fascinated by the ability to capture time and memories in images and film footage. It is what drew me into the world of photography and filmmaking and where Little Loo was founded in 2011.

I passionately believe that every family deserves a beautiful birth experience.

I've served in the birth community in one aspect or another for 22 years, 19 as a L&D nurse, and currently as a birth photographer.  


I grew up in southern Utah where a love for nature and exploration was fostered and encouraged. I have always been creative with a love for writing and art.

With the birth of my own children my desire to document their lives became a passion for me, and I have albums and boxes full of images to prove it (I was also an avid scrapbooker). After the stillborn loss of my third child, that passion for holding and cherishing every moment that I could grew even more intense and important in my life. I discovered just how fleeting life is. 

Now my children are all grown and out of the home, leaving me even more freedom for my passions of running, traveling, and exploring the world. It has also opened up the opportunity to be available for birth clients and the time commitment it takes to specialize in them.

accolades & achievements


My style is clean and simple. I am drawn to the story and to light. I want you to look back on your images and footage many years to come and still love everything that we have captured and for that reason, I strive to keep my style clean and classic.

My goal is to capture the feel of your birth and family just as they are. While I do pose to a minimal degree during my family sessions, it is usually to direct you into interactions with each other, where I can draw out your personalities and connections with each other. I want to capture you just as you are.. deeply and madly in love with each other, connected, and unique. 

Working with a strong and reliable backup photographer is essential for any birth photographer and my relationship with Brianne Hidalgo insures you are always covered! 

From Brianne:
  I am more than honored to provide back up photography and videography services for Little Loo. Lisa and I have built a beautiful working relationship over the years. We rely on, and trust each other implicitly. While my hope is for Lisa to be able to be behind the lens for all of her clients, if she needs me to cover any part of your birth or family session, please know I will think of you as one of my own. I will be there in a heartbeat!
