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.

Rise & Shine - Maybury State Park - Northville, MI Family Photographer

Early bird gets the worm, am I right? There aren’t too many families that would pay me so they can wake up early, get all pretty, and meet me in the middle of a field by 7:45am. But I am oh so thankful this one did. 30 degree temps and a little frost on the ground didn’t stop the little one from shining (shout out to the unpredictable-as-ever Michigan weather). The sunrise was amazing and warm and perfect.

For those families who can’t quite make a sunset session, don’t forget how pretty sunrise can be.

Family of Four - Kensington Metropark - Milford, MI Family Photographer

I start off every photo session like this .. “hey guys, we’re going to do a few photos of everyone looking at the camera and then you’re not going to look at me again.” Throughout the session I am always reminding someone, “hey, can you look at your dad?” or “mom, look at your husband.” We are programmed to smile and look at the camera and it’s my job to stop that for an hour.

Yes, I try to capture that “Christmas Card” photo. It is usually the photo that grandma wants printed. But it is not my main goal. I go into every session hoping to capture you being you. Being silly, or happy, loving on each other, or whatever your family unit is showing me. Each family is unique and that is what makes this job fun.

Styling your Family for Photography Sessions - Karra Lynn Photography - Plymouth, MI
 

I hear this all the time: “what should we wear for our photo session?” Clothing can be a stressful part of the photography session process (and it shouldn’t be!) I always give my families the same wardrobe tips - start with moms outfit, don’t be too matchy matchy, and add layers & texture for interest. But sometimes (like me) you’re visual learner.

When I learned about Honeytree Style & Select, I knew I needed it for my clients. I needed something to help my families put together a wardrobe fast, without breaking the bank, and without going to a million stores at the mall. Style & Select offers all of that. Check out my video below where I style a family of 5 in 5 minutes. 5 MINUTES! Ok. maybe six minutes.
