Warnock Family Film - Northville, MI

Another film under my belt, yay! With this story, I really wanted to capture more sound bites and practice incorporating those into the film. I looove how it turned out.

Big thanks to the Warnock family for letting me capture their Sunday afternoon. It was full of playtime, laughs, and snacks of course. I hope you enjoy the film as much as I did making it. xo, k

Dorchak Family Film - Plymouth, MI

When I first started exploring videography, I wasn’t sure what it would turn into. My passion remains with families. As I began learning more and more about family films, I only could describe this new venture one way - modern home movies. Because that is exactly what it is .. your family, in your home, making ordinary moments magical.

Thankfully, I have friends like the Dorchak’s. They are guinea pigs. And let me tell you - after this first film, I’m not stopping. We spent the afternoon playing, snuggling, and smashing cake (thanks Betty’s Bakes for both cakes!) Check out the video and photos from our lazy afternoon. Happy Birthday Reese! xo, k

Why I Chose Lifestyle Newborn Photography - Plymouth, MI

Wide-awake newborns used to scare the CRAP out of me. I thought I HAD to photograph them sleeping. When I was first learning about newborn photography, every image I found was of a perfectly posed baby sleeping in basket, wrapped up like a cute peanut. I thought my clients wanted that. I would spend the majority of our sessions trying to get newborns to sleep. There was so much “shhhhing”. So much rocking. Playing hot potato with the paci. Too much heat (rumor has it newborns like to be warm. They can be so demanding seesh, lol JKKKK)

Now? It doesn’t matter if the baby is sleeping or wide-awake. I’ll photograph them in your arms, in their crib, and every spot in between. Lifestyle newborn photography changed the way I think about newborns. What if the baby is crying? I’ll probably continue to click my shutter so you can remember that moment when mama soothes her newborn during the early days.

For this session, baby Ian was wide-awake the whole time. And I LOVED it. He has such an old soul already. He held his stare for so long. He was super content being loved on by his family all morning.

These photos are just an example of why I chose lifestyle photography. No expectations of that perfectly posed photo. Just your family, doing you. This amazing mama text me later that night and said “this was the most chill photo session ever. We so appreciate that and it shows in the sweet pictures.”

2019 Photo Album Details - Karra Lynn Photography - Plymouth, MI

When was the last time you printed photographs? I’m guilty of it too. We are all busy and I totally understand. But photos aren’t meant to get lost on a hard-drive. Photos shouldn’t be published to Facebook and never looked at again. Photos are meant to be printed, adored, and passed down from generation to generation. When I started Karra Lynn Photography, I wanted to preserve moments. In 2019, all my families will receive a classic 10x8 photo album to keep those moments safe for a lifetime.

Truth be told, I went back and forth on what product I wanted to provide to my families. I wanted something easy for my families. Something they didn’t have to stress over. Something that showed up at their doorstep with no work required on their end. No framing or pounding nails into walls only to realize you measured incorrectly. Something simple. I am so happy I ended up with the photo album. It is gorgeous. With a linen cover and lay-flat matte spreads, this album is everything. Imagine this beaut sitting on your coffee table. The best part of the album? I’ll design it for you. Easy peasy, no stress. Pick your cover color and I’ll do the rest.
