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

Beautiful Family and A New Blessing {By:Lindsey Vavra/Harlingen, TX Newborn Photographer}

So pretty in lace!

I loved this mommy’s selection of lace and her willingness to go out in the heat to capture some images.  It was so fun getting to do something different and I loved the results.

Baby Lily was an AMAZING baby to work with!   She was so smiley….I posted one of her smiles below.

These sweet little babies have the BIGGEST AND MOST BEAUTIFUL EYES and lips EVER!   And oh my, it was so much fun to watch them enter act with one another.   We had two assistants, one photographer, mom and an uncle helping to make this session happen.  Twins=Double the fun!

We shot some other shots of them in their adorable party outfits for their upcoming party, but here are my most favorite shots from their session!

Thank C family for allowing me to capture your beautiful babies!
