lisa christine photography:

today i am highlighting my dear friend and exceptionally talented photographer lisa austin. her work is creative, stylish and delightfully real. she know's exactly how to capture the most treasured moments in your life and sustain them forever. some of my favorite things about lisa are her bubbly spirit and contagious laugh! she always fills a room with her laughter. 

{How did you get into photography?} 
In middle school and high school, I was obsessed with documenting any and everything my friends and I did. It's cliche, but I loved the idea of preserving a moment in time. I started learning the technical/artistic aspects of it through classes in high school. I did it as a hobby, poorly, for a couple of years. While planning our wedding, Chad and I met and started working with a local photographer who taught us pretty much everything we know about photographing weddings and running a photography business.

{What activities do you love to do in your free time?}
I read, anything I can learn from, I'm not a fan of fiction. I'm trying to learn how to knit right now, which is equal parts frustrating/fun. In warmer weather, I just love to be in the sunshine. But most of my free time is spent cuddled up in one of my 9,087 blankets with Chad : )

{Tell us something we may not know about you!}
I am the heaviest sleeper most people have ever met. I can sleep through storms/loud noises, falling out of bed, being in a room full of people. I can also fall asleep almost anywhere. I take my unconsciousness very seriously.

{Where do you draw your creative inspiration from?}
In general, I try to keep my eyes open all of the time for inspiration. I take a lot of random photos with my phone of outfits/ideas/colors/poses/props that I love. I try to combine the things that inspire me with each client's personality.
More specifically, for toddlers and older kids sessions: Kids clothing ads. For baby sessions: my peers. I follow a lot of photographers blogs to see how they're lighting and posing babies.

 lisa is so insanely talented and even took this lovely pic of my baby girl {below}! i love it so much i just had to share it with you. if you are interested in booking lisa for your photography needs you can contact her here.
