adorable and heartwarming

“I was familiar with Joy Lyn Photography long before our son Stratton was born. Joy did an incredible job of photographing both our engagement and our wedding, but it was our newborn session that I’d been dreaming of since first seeing her work.

Joy’s newborn pictures speak for themselves–they are sweet, innocent, adorable, and heartwarming–but it’s what happens on the other side of the lens that sets Joy apart from other newborn photographers. As a first-time mom with only 8 days under my belt, I started to get pretty anxious when my little guy decided he was more interested in eating, fussing, pooping, and peeing than he was in sleeping peacefully and having his picture taken. Joy took it all in stride (and didn’t even flinch when she was pooped and peed on several times!) and was completely at ease with my son.

She swaddled and shushed and swayed and styled him, and she did it with a patient heart and gentle hand, just as naturally as if it were her own baby. Joy doesn’t just photograph newborns, she LOVES newborns, and it’s that love that goes into every last detail of her sessions. I can’t imagine trusting anyone else with such special, cherished photos!”

beautiful keepsakes

“I can’t say enough positive things about Joy! She took the most gorgeous pictures of my daughter and son when they were only days old.

The pictures were so gorgeous and are such beautiful keepsakes of my children as newborns! Joy held my daughter and made all of the pictures gorgeous while I relaxed. She made me feel so comfortable with my babies.

Joy is a consummate professional and you will not be disappointed if you go with her for your baby’s portraits and family pictures.”

baby whisperer

“The images Joy captured of my daughter, Avery, absolutely blew me away. If anyone was ever destined to be a newborn photographer, it would be Joy. She loves (looooves) babies and it was evident in the way she cradled, rocked, and comforted Avery during her session. Joy has a way of wrapping and snuggling pliable little bodies into the sweetest poses you can imagine, with the facial expressions you never want to forget.

Joy’s passion for her work made me feel like we were her top priority and favorite clients. I had mentioned to her that my parents were leery about too many bare bottomed pictures of my daughter, and Joy made her the tiniest, most adorable, knit pants I have ever seen! Not only did she make pants and matching hats for our session, Joy artfully incorporated several family antiques into Avery’s photos that make them even more precious to me. I cannot express how much we love her work!

She’s a baby whisperer. She’s an artist. Trust me, you’ll be thanking her.”
