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

What a terrific event at a wonderful church and school.

I LOVE  St. Alban’s and have been so blessed by so many at this wonderful place!  It has been an amazing school for our youngest son Colin!!!!

I hope the event was a huge success for both the school and church.  Here is a link to some candid and a few group shots.

The D Family {By:JJ & Lindsey Vavra/Texas Professional Photographers}

JJ and I sure enjoyed our “Bit of Joy” mini session with the sweet D family.  Their little man Reed is SO very cute and reminds me so much of our Colin.

Thank you for becoming new members of the Full Of Joy Family!!!  We hope to capture new memories of your growing family soon!!!

Blessing to you,


AND ANOTHER FUTURE AGGIE! {By: Lindsey & JJ Vavra/Texas Professional Photographers}

Mr. A is off to the engineering program at Texas A&M and they are lucky to have him!

He is a wonderful young man who comes from an amazing family!  We have been blessed to know this family and work with them!

Mom, I hope you enjoy the images!  I can see them fitting perfectly into your home and with all of Dayhsa’s portraits!

Thank you for letting us capture this time in Zack’s life!

Best Wishes,

Lindsey & J.J.

I think this is my fave!

I think the blue is a great color on him!

Very serious, but I like it!

W Family {By: Lindsey & JJ Vavra/Texas Professional Photographers}

I hate the circumstances that lead to this photo session, but I sure do love this family and was so glad to work with them again.  Our schedules have not worked out to do a family session since little C was about one.

Poor Luke, the family dog, is very sick and the family wanted to capture some images to remember him by.  Loosing a pet is like loosing family member and I hope we captured some images that they can cherish for years to come.

Thank you for letting spend some time with you!  We will keep you in our prayers!



Sweet Family!

Love the little smirk!

Love these!

Looking good!

Little C is like most boys/men and did not care much for having portraits done…it is especially hard when you are 4 years. He rather I just play with him, which I did…but still managed to get some shots in :)

Precious Luke: Beloved dog and friend!

Another future Aggie {By:Lindsey & JJ Vavra/Texas Professional Photographers}

Once again we have been blessed to work with another kind young man that is headed to Texas A&M!

Thank you for letting be creative with you and for being such a great sport!  Best wishes to you in Aggieland!

I promise I did not whiten his teeth!!!!

Future model perhaps….maybe a fall back career :)

This might be my fave….

Love it!

I don’t know if he was really having fun or just laughing at how dorky JJ and I are….:)

He actually said he is not photogenic…..ha!


Laughing at us again….  Can you tell he loves the outdoors???
