Hi, Welcome to my blog!

Here's a little about me and why I love photography.

I've been married to my best friend for 5 years. I'm a young mom of 2 little girls. (As I type this, one is 3 years and one is 3 months old). The photo on the left is of the 3 year old (my other daughter is also hiding in the photo- I was pregnant at the time ;)

I love photographing people and details. I've learned that what really matters is not the pictures of the people, but the pictures that show who a person really is. That's why I tend to photograph people doing things together. I direct a little, and pose a little now and then, but I really treasure the opportunity to capture the real moments.

For more information on the basics of what I do, pricing, etc. you can visit my website. The blog will show you a few photos from each session. It'll also be where you'll see contests from time to time and announcements about upcoming events and changes at Heather Lynne Photography. I also blog a little about my life here, so you'll get to know me a bit through reading.

I hope you'll check it out & stay a while!

It's My Birthday & I Have an Announcement!

I promised news on my birthday & here it is. I've been thinking about changing my blog for a while and I've finally done it. Some of you know that I also have a blog called "Raising Memories" where I post about some of the things that I do with my girls. I used to have a family blog but it sort of died out. While it's been fun having each of these blogs, I felt it was time to combine and have one.

However, if you are only really interested in my photography, don't worry- you can still subscribe to the RSS feed for just photography posts. (You don't have to get updates about my life, my thoughts, and my kid-focussed activities if you don't want to!).

So, head over to my new blog and check it out. Click on "Subscribe" and choose which feed you're interested in (Photography, Raising Memories, or the whole blog), and we can all resume our regular blogging :)


(You may notice that my photography website used to be at www.heatherlynne.ca, and now that's where my blog is. My website is in great need of updating, so I'm gonna work on updating my portfolio and getting it up eventually, but for now, just enjoy the blog- it's the most current thing I have to offer for now! :)

Well, tomorrow's my birthday & I'll have something new to tell you about.

First though, let me just say that a number of people (including my own mother) have contacted me, to see if my announcement is that I am pregnant!

No! That is not the announcement.

But continue guessing, it's kind of amusing! ;)

Our Family Photos

Psssst.... My birthday is on Saturday!
I'll be announcing something new that day, so stay tuned!

In the meantime, here's a picture of what I've been dreaming of doing in my living room since before we had a family of 4!!! I've had it up for a while now, and have been meaning to post a photo:

Isn't it wonderful? :) Well, I think it is! Thanks to Amanda Stratton, I now have some fabulous photographs of my family that I will treasure for the rest of my life!

When I entered her Mother's Day contest last year, I sent her this photo of our living room wall:

Isn't the "after" so much better than the "before"?

Oh how I love this type of photography and how I love the opportunity to preserve and cherish fleeting moments!

My family is the most important thing in the world to me! (that's sort of a clue as to what's coming on Saturday ;)

Baby Laura ~ Parts

Just finished Baby Laura's Parts Poster & thought I'd share.

Baby Laura

Laura June
January 13, 2010
At Home
3 Weeks Old

My friend Frieda had her second baby girl last month and I was excited that she wanted me to take photos of their new arrival. She's a sweet, tiny little thing, and I'm looking forward to watching her grow up, and getting some more photos along the way :)

For whatever reason, I just love this shot. There's something about that little baby head being cradled in a parents' hands that I love.

It doesn't seem like too long ago that I photographed Laura's sister, Grace, when she was just 2 weeks old. Look at her now!

Well, I'm off to work on a Parts Poster for Laura now. I just wanted to share a few of my favourites first. I'll be back with a few before & afters to share from this session in a day or two.

Personal Reasons

If you've contacted me in the last few months about booking a session or a wedding, you've probably received the response that I am not booking any new sessions right now, for personal reasons. Now that I've got some of those things figured out, I thought I'd explain a little.

Personal Reason #1: Sometime in July of 2009, I started waking up with sore fingers and wrists. I had had some joint issues in the past, so I was just concerned about them getting worse. Then one day I woke up with my hands very stiff, and was unable to do simple everyday things. That's when I started turning weddings down. I didn't know what was wrong with me and I didn't know if this would happen on the morning of someone's wedding.

Personal Reason #2: I had a baby at the end of 2008, so 2009 was our first year as a family of 4. I wanted to pull back a little from photography and do a bit less so that I could free up the time that I spent processing images, and use it for playing with my girls. The issue with my hands sort of forced me to stick with this.

Since the summer, I have seen several doctors including a Chiropractor and a Rheumatologist. I have had more tests done than I can count, and spent months believing that I was an appointment away from being diagnosed with Lupus. It's been a challenging time!

I am happy to report that I do not have Lupus, I do not have Arthritis, nor anything else with a name that we know of, thus far. It's a relief, but it's frustrating because I don't know what's going on with my joints.

The other good news is that I have found ways to relieve a lot of the pain and stiffness that I had been experiencing and while I am not back to normal or perfect health, I am doing way better.

So, while Personal Reason #1 is fading, Personal Reason #2 remains. So, I've been thinking about 2010, and for now, I'm thinking that a good plan is to do roughly one session per month. I may squeeze an extra in during nicer weather- we'll see how it goes.

Anyway, that's what's been going on with me, and that's why you haven't seen too many posts in the last few months!

Stay tuned though, because my first session of 2010 took place this morning, and I'll have images of someone cute and little to share with you soon!
