HEY FRIENDSS!!! My name is Lindsey!

I’m an Atlanta based lifestyle photographer, event planner (full or partial), and the creator of the mobile wagon. I am a wife, a mother of two of the sweetest boys you will ever meet, and a dog mom.  I am a professional frolicker, a very unprofessional country singer and an obsessed coffee drinker, with cream of course. I love to sing Carrie Underwood on the top of my lungs. Miranda Lambert you are my spirit animal and I will dance like no one is watching. I will put on the best car show EVER! I was born in Florida with my heart at Disney and my soul in the water.  I snowboarded my way through high school in Colorado and graduated college at the one and only, Florida State with a degree in Criminal Justice and a minor in Psychology!  

Growing up, I wanted to work in the Criminal Justice field. Specifically, a forensic photographer.  Later in life, after college, my vision changed.  I loved kids and knew I wanted to open up a daycare. I got wrapped up in this crazy world called LIFE. You know, stuck in the same routine, day in and day out but I was comfortable. Been there?  I felt stuck at a dead end Corporate job. Needless to say, I was MISERABLE!  I cried most days from missing my son, I had mom guilt all the time, I missed his first step and his first word, which of course was ‘mama’. When I was pregnant with my second son, I knew something had to change. NO WAY I was going back to work and leaving my two sons to watch the clock every minute of every day.

 I was scrolling on youtube, during my maternity leave with my second son and came across Steve Harvey’s video. It was a big wave of emotion that just hit me out of nowhere! He was talking to his audience, really me, during a Family Feud commercial break, about jumping! Have you seen it? What are you waiting for… GO RIGHT NOW and watch it!!!  I knew right then, I had to jump! I had a passion and a gift I was just too scared of the jump.  I knew right then, this was God telling me, go, go and soar, or you will never know!

Before you leave this world, just jump one time!

When I started my business, I knew I wanted to help other families, other moms tell their story. When my husband and I started a family, I was blown away with how much professional pictures were, and yes, now I know why! But, when my oldest son was born, I wanted to capture all the little moments, milestones- his journey, but financially, was not able to. When my second son was born, I was determined to capture more of his journey. I took photography classes in high school and my favorite was capturing weddings but, technology back then was just not my type. I bought a new camera, YES, I still had my high school FILM camera, and I couldn’t put it down. I want to help tell your story and not have to spend a fortune, or even break your wallet!

If you are up for fun, piggy back rides, tons of kisses, and an adventure- well I am your girl! We will have dance parties, fly like superman and walk like a unicorn. WHY NOT? I want all of you, the silly, the fun, the mess, the love birds and everything in between. Do not stress about our session. Do not go running around looking for that perfect outfit or stress because your Amazon package didn’t get there in time. GOSH NOOO! Come as you are.

I specialize in authentic lifestyle photos, real connection and unposed moments. I want to see the unconfined movement, the unfiltered interactions, the unscripted moments and the uninhibited laughter.  I would love the chance to tell your story, your true, one of a kind story, love, tantrums, chaotic hot mess express and everything in between. 

Life is like a camera- You focus on what’s important capture the good time develop from the negative and if things don’t work out take another shot

My style is a hint of mood; photos that are raw, candid, and tell a story. That’s why I’m in this, to tell your story.  

You Don’t Take a Photograph, You Make It.

Because every picture should tell a story

You might be wondering where Haylan came from?! Am I right?  Here is the short version- It all started when my second son was born. My sons pushed me to pick the camera up, again, and start capturing their journey, their stories! So, I wanted nothing less than my logo to represent MY story. Haylan= my sons names combined. My favorite quote will always be: ‘Sons are the anchors of a mother’s life.’
