I strive to capture each individual personality in a way that expresses the beauty I see. I have a love for capturing the unique and sometimes under appreciated qualities of my clients. I want each person to love their photo shoot, and have a great time, feeling like you weren't even at a photo shoot! I named my business 7 Paisley Pumpkins Photography because my mom used call me Pumpkin Lynn while growing up in small town Iowa, and I have always liked the paisley design. I have 6 people including my kids, and the 7th member of the family is my Nikon D5 camera! (Her name is Tilly) My inspiration for starting photography started when I was young, my dad died in a car accident and we did not have very many pictures of him at all. I want everyone who is willing to spend the time and money to do a photo shoot with me to value your pictures for life, and be able to look back on this time in your lives with happiness! Pictures are some of the only things people can treasure for a lifetime, and the memories you make now will be appreciated for many generations to come. I can understand why some people think that they are not "photogenic", and I want you to see the beauty in yourself. You are always your harshest critic, I am to myself also. Your family and friends love you as they see you, and I want to bring that beauty out in my pictures. My photo shoots are fun, and reflect you and your family at their happiest. Hope to see you soon!
