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

1st Birthday Session {By: Lindsey Vavra/Harlingen Baby Photographer}

It has been such a joy to watch this little girl grow.  The year went too fast!

Sweet Baby A {By: Lindsey Vavra/Harlingen Baby Photographer}

Sweet A is a darling little baby girl.  She has beautiful skin and features.  SO SWEET AND FLUFFY!   She was a dream to work with.

Marine Baby {By:Lindsey Vavra/Harlingen Maternity & Newborn Photographer}

It was such a pleasure to capture both the maternity and newborn session for this beautiful family.   Both mom and daughter are beautiful and have the most gorgeous hair.   I kept thinking during the maternity session, “I hope the baby will be born with headful of hair.”  He did and it too is gorgeous!!!!

Baby boy is so sweet and was a dream to work with.  Big sister was amazing too and was so proud.  I had so much fun shooting their sessions!  I have the best job!

I cannot imagine what it is like to be the wife of a Marine.  It is such great sacrifice for the entire family.  I am thankful their service and sacrifice.

Thank you H family for the privilege of capturing your beautiful family during this time.

I do recommend that you dry mount the posters so they don't ripple.

Little Z’s 6 Month Session {By:LindseyVavra/Harlingen Baby Photographer}

Isn’t little girl just too cute?!  I love her fully cheeks and her dark brown eyes.  She is gorgeous!  And the coral color was perfect compliment to her beautiful skin.
