I am an Air Force wife and mother to 2 children, 2 dogs and 2 cats. I am not a morning person and have a bad habit of staying up way too late. I start each morning with a cup of coffee and I think the outcome of my day solely depends on if I am able to finish that cup before it gets cold.
When I am not behind my lens I stay at home with my kids. Typically in between sessions and editing I am making lunches and trying to avoid total meltdowns. I have been a photography enthusiast since I was little. I was always the girl at school clicking my camera capturing memories. It's a good thing I did, because I have an awful memory! At the age of 16, I was working a part time position in Best Buy's camera department. This was when digital cameras were beginning to replace film cameras (I'll let you do the math on how old that makes me!) I purchased my first digital camera soon after and I have been continuing to expand my capabilities as a photographer ever since.
In addition to always having an interest in photography I have also always had an interest in business. In 2008 I received my Bachelor's Degree in Business Management and in 2010 I graduated with my MBA. After graduating with my bachelors and while working toward my Masters, I worked as a Sales Manager for a retailer. I liked different aspects of my job, but I had always dreamed of owning my own business. In 2012, when I welcomed my first child, I left my corporate world job and started working toward my dream job. Luckily, with my amazing husband's support, my dreams became reality in 2014 when Stephanie Lynne Photography was born. I look forward to being your photographer and having the opportunity to capture special moments for you and your family!
A lifestyle photography session is the perfect way to capture the every day life and love of you and your family. The best part of my job is documenting your life in the most unrehearsed way, and the beauty of a lifestyle session is you can make it your own. It is those raw moments that will mean the most to you years from now, not the perfectly posed images. I strive to make your whole photography experience just that, a customized, fun, and positive experience from start to finish rather than just another "dreaded" photo session. Instead, you are at ease while I am capturing the real moments. All you have to do is be ready to have some fun and create some unforgettable memories.
You know how your children are often weird around strangers and sometimes throw tantrums in public? Not to mention totally unpredictable in front of the camera. That is the beauty of a session with me, because of the nature of the session kids feel at ease with me and think they have just made a new best friend and having the time of their life. Lifestyle photos are the most authentic kind of photos you will receive because no one can duplicate them. It is your beautiful life being captured. Don't worry, I will get those typical "look at the camera and smile" photos that we all want, but most of your session I will be capturing you, the love and emotion behind your family. Be sure to contact me if you have any more questions regarding your lifestyle session, I can't wait to capture these memories for you!
