Meet Lynzi

IMG_0831-2

Hi and welcome to my site! Feel free to take some time and look around. It really is a labor of love. This is not just my work, it is my art and I am so excited to be able to share it with you! Now a little about me. My name is Lynzi and I am an army wife and homeschooling mother to three rambunctious little boys. I’m a displaced southerner enjoying the cooler weather and beautiful terrain here in New Haven County, Connecticut. I’ve always loved to paint and draw, my favorite mediums are pen and ink and watercolor, but with kids around there is little time for making the mess associated with that kind of art. My passion for photography started about two years ago with a simple class on how to shoot in manual taught by my amazing friend Mel Karlberg. In January 2014 I started my first 365 project and shooting daily became an obsession. Over the last year I have developed a distinctive style. While I shoot all kinds of photography, I prefer lifestyle and environmental portraiture. There is nothing more natural than photographing a family interacting in their own environment. Another thing you will notice is that I┬álove black and white photography. I feel it strips away distractions and draws out emotions that color photos often don’t. While I am currently a hobbiest shooting to build my portfolio I do plan to eventually build a business and take clients regularly.
