Welcome to Full of Joy Photography

Welcome to Full of Joy Photography where our specialty is photographing Joyful people.

Lindsey Vavra owns and operates her boutique studio located in Harlingen, TX.  Lindsey's passion for the art of photography started when she had her first child.  She remembers taking her old 35mm camera and snapping away constantly to preserve that memory.  She has since studied through the New York Institute of Photography and continues to attend many workshops and seminars taught by prestigious photographers.  In 2005, Lindsey started her business out of her passion for creating art and life long memories through photography.

Lindsey is a wife and mother of two awesome little boys ages 8 and 4.  She understands deeply how important it is to capture those memories of your precious little ones before they grow and the sweetest moments have passed.  Lindsey's passion is to capture precious memories for you while providing a Joyful experience.  We promise to cherish these fleeting moments with you.

Hugs to you all!

"Let those also who love Your name be Joyful in You" -
Psalm 5:11

Happy First Birthday {By: Lindsey Vavra/ Rio Grande Valley Photographer}

I just loved working with this little cutie.  I laughed so hard during her session that I was afraid that my images would be out of focus.  She was such a hoot.

All because two people fell in love. {By: Lindsey Vavra/ Valley Newborn Photographer}

I am trying to catch up on posting some images to our site.  I can’t believe I haven’t posted any from this handsome boy’s session yet.

This little guy came earlier than expected but that didn’t stop him from weighing a delightful 9lbs. and 4oz.  It loved working with the adorable fluffy guy and his parents.  Such a beautiful family!
















Such a SWEETIE! {By: Lindsey Vavra/Rio Grande Valley, Child Photographer}

This little guys was such a ham during his session.  I think he had as much fun as I did.
