Mommy and Me Sessions | Celebrating Motherhood | West Palm Beach Photographer | Wellington, FL Photographer| Palm Beach County Photographer

Are you making a visual history for your loved ones with you in them?

I bet many of you will say no. All too many times I try to get a Mom into a photo with their baby, toddler, child, teen and they say, "Nooo, I am _______________  fill in the blank." I'm here to tell you that's nonsense! I am here to tell you the only thing they will think when they look at photos of you together are my Mom loved me, cared for me, fed me, played with me, hugged me, went to my games, picked me up from school, took care of me when I was sick, worked to support me, read books to me, showed me tough love when I needed it, kissed me goodnight...They are going to cherish those photos more and more over time I promise you and so will you. In fact, you'll probably think you look better and better in that photo with time! LOL. Personally, my favorite photos of my children and I are the ones where I am interacting with them - I don't have to be looking at the lens.

when your children look back for photos with their Mom - will they find them? I hope so...

As we approach Mother's Day (Sunday, May 14) in this next month, I encourage you to do a Mommy and Me session! Priceless memories forever...

For Mamas with baby (not walking), I am photographing in the studio with the white bed along with some greenery along the bed frame. Mamas may use the studio's white, cream lace dresses or tops. You may wear what you wish, but the vision is a soft white/cream palette overall look. I recommend the same for baby - a white/cream outfit. If you are nursing, I highly recommend some beautiful nursing shots as this connection with your baby is indescribable. A mix of lifestyle and portrait shots will be taken. 

For Mamas with toddlers and older children, I will be photographing on location outdoors before sunset. Do you have a favorite activity that stands out in this stage of life that you'd love to document? It's not necessary, but something to think about especially if you have a child in the imaginative age range. Again, a mix of lifestyle and portrait shots will be taken. 

Mama and Me Sessions will begin shooting the week of April 17 through the entire month of May. Weekend sessions will happen on Saturday, April 29 and Sunday, April 30, 2017 from 12 - 4 pm scheduling each hour - 4 spots available each day. This is the only weekend session available before Mother's Day as SunFest is happening May 3-7 and downtown is pretty crazy. The 2nd weekend studio session will be Saturday, May 20, and Sunday, May 21, 2017. Weekday sessions are also available. On location outdoor sessions are booked 1 hour before sunset. 

For styling, I recommend classy on trend, comfortable clothes that you can move in with your children - maxi dresses, flowy shirts, stretchy pieces. I will consult with you prior to your shoot date to discuss final wardrobe. LuLaRoe just came out with a super cute Mommy and Me Collection - leggings as small as 2T to Tall and Curvy size. PLUS, LuLaRoe Team Jen is offering an additional 10% discount along with booking this session!!! Can't go wrong!

Christina Lin Photography | The Studio is opening | October Grand Opening Special!

Happy Fall! Although it feels nothing like it here. Every minute of the day seems to be accounted for. Just returned from an incredible photography workshop with Elena Shumilova (check out her work if you don't know who she is - you will be in pure AWE) hosted by Amy McDaniels of Dewdrops Photography - top photographers in the industry. These workshops are so invaluable to our business, to our inspiration, to our art. There are multiple take aways we gain, but the cool thing is you are still YOU - developing new, subtle skills that work within your own style.

The studio is coming along! Waiting for some inspections to clear and will officially open in early October after attending The Baby Summit conference in Atlanta.

I will be opening with full on motivation and excitement after these amazing conferences.

Please come in and introduce yourself if you're in the downtown area. Studio is located on 421 Olive Avenue between Gardenia and just before Fern Street. Best place to park is along Gardenia Street or the Evernia Street parking garage. If you get lucky, there is a spot right in front of the studio. Super excited to get to know the downtown West Palm Beach community.

The October Grand Opening special is here!

This is a great way for you to experience a shorter, 30 minute session, get to know me/understand my style and BEST of all freeze some life moments of today. The session includes maternity, baby/child and family (up to 6 people) photography. It excludes newborn and cake smash sessions. Maternity sessions take place in studio only due to the Zika virus. In studio, natural light sessions take place on weekdays 10-5. On location/outdoor sessions will be completed in the downtown WPB/Palm Beach area. Outdoor sessions take place either just before sunrise or 2 hours before sunset. The session includes 10 digital files printable up to 8x10,  1 really cool 8x10 Canvas Mini of your image choice that is ready to display and 20% off a la carte items if you so wish for additional prints/products for gifts or your walls. When your final edits are completed, you will be contacted to come into the studio, view your gallery and choose your 8x10 Canvas Mini. Digital files will be delivered via download. Gift certificates are always available as well.

Benefits of completing your shoots in October: overall less stress before the holidays, more time to order your holiday cards, decide on gifts with enough time to order, longer days continue through Sunday November 6. Once daylight savings time ends, outdoor sessions must be completed before 5:30pm. We all know the day after Halloween-the holiday craze begins. Don't be that person that realizes after Thanksgiving you didn't complete your session! Get your date in the book.
