hello, my name is lynna!

The Afsharpour Family

We had the pleasure of working with Lynna for our family photoshoot. We spent a lot of time trying to find the perfect photographer and were glad to come across her work. We were drawn to Lynna's pictures based on the aesthetic, colors, location and ambiance and our experience with her was nothing short of amazing and memorable. Lynna was not only incredibly sweet but also very responsive to emails and thoroughly explained what to
expect. She was understanding and empathetic towards us wanting to reschedule our shoot last minute due to weather and poor air quality. The location and timing of our shoot was perfection. Lynna made us feel very relaxed and comfortable and knew exactly how to thoughtfully navigate the session with a 1 year old. We left the shoot excited to see the photos which came out beautiful- all of this is simply a testament to her talent!

Lynna was a dream to work with from the initial inquiry to the day of the photoshoot. We cannot praise her enough! We brought our puppy with us and even he felt comfortable throughout the photoshoot! She genuinely loves to listen to your story and captures precious moments to reflect who you are. She felt like a childhood friend and we had a lot of fun with her - it has been so long since we laughed that much! She is also very mindful of Covid and wore a mask the entire time, which we really appreciated. We admire not only her breathtaking photography style, but also her warm personality. She is truly a wonderful soul and it is hard to come across such people nowadays, so we are grateful that we met her. We look forward to many more photoshoots with her!

Lynna went above and beyond, to say the least! From the moment I contacted her to the day she returned the photos, she remained extremely responsive, personable, and knowledgeable! 
Lynna makes a great effort to ensure the day of the shoot is as perfect as possible, including offering wardrobe, props, and suggesting breathtaking locations! On the day of our shoot, we arrived about 30 minutes early and to our surprise Lynna was already waiting for us. We were extremely thankful because, on this particular day, Karl the Fog decided to join us earlier than expected which did not deter her at all! She knew exactly how to position us to capture the dreamiest of shots. Her warm demeanor helped us get comfortable in front of the camera, and the pictures really show it! We are simply in awe of the beautiful photos she produced! I am so very glad we booked with Lynna and I would suggest her to any of my family and friends, hands down!

This was me and my fiancé's first time taking photographs with a photographer and Lynna was just the absolute best person to work with. We fell in love with her overall aesthetic when we discovered her website. Her kindness and professionalism when organizing the the photoshoot as well as answering our questions was amazing and she made things so clear and gets tasks done in a timely manner. She helped pick out our location and we are so glad we went with her recommendation. She is so remarkably talented when it comes to photographing really special moments and choosing scenery and lighting that really emphasizes the feelings she captures in her pictures. The final pictures came out more amazing than I could have imagined and I'm happy with the quality of our engagement pictures. Would definitely reach back out for any future photoshoots.

Lynna recently spent an hour photographing my extended family. We had a BIG group and 3 rambunctious toddlers on the verge of melting down. She has patient, kind, and extremely accommodating. We really appreciate photographers who make us feel relaxed and comfortable. It really showed because the photos turned out incredible. We're so excited to share them out for our Christmas cards this year. Few highlights of her service:
Client closet: this was the most valuable thing for busy moms. It saved me hours of shopping because all of her options were so gorgeous and fitting for the color palette we wanted to go for.  Client handbook: this handbook is what helped my family achieve the perfect color palette. That was the most stressful part for everyone but once they saw the color swatches we were able to pull the outfits together. Very quick turn around for photographs. She was very prompt and timely and the delivery method allowed for all of us to view together. Thanks for a wonderful session, will definitely be scheduling future shoots with Lynna.

I love how Lynna had so many pose ideas for us and captured our emotions perfectly! She also knows all the best locations for photo shoots & has a detailed guide to prepare you for your photoshoot. 10/10 experience, we are so in love with our photos, all thanks to Lynna!

The Balcazar Family

Our family had such a great time working with lynna. beforehand, she was super helpful with helping me pick out the different outfits and offering ideas for each of us. I love the fact that she has a client closet, such an awesome idea. she has SO many dresses to choose from, it was so hard for me to choose one. she brought ALL of my top picks, so I was able to try them on before the photoshoot. also love that she provides a littles client closet too, so cute! during the photoshoot she was super friendly and made us all feel comfortable. she worked so well with our baby girl and our dog axel - even when they both wouldn't keep still. SO IN LOVE with all the photos we’ve received from lynna. as our first family photoshoot, I'm glad we have all these precious memories to always look back on.
