Welcome to Life in Motion, thanks for stopping by!  My name is Lyndsay Stradtner and I am a natural light photographer with 14 years experience.  While home is Austin, Texas, my family and I are currently traveling the US in an RV full time.  Yes, we sold our 2,400 square foot home for a 400 square foot RV and couldn’t be happier about it!  While our initial goal was to travel full time for one year, that quickly turned in to (at least) 3 years.  While stepping away from over 11 years in Austin was hard, I return at least once per year to photograph clients.  I’d love to photograph your family while on the road or at home.  You can see if we will be in your area here.

I am married to a really great guy named Jason.  With 5 kids (Ty, Taryn, Jude, Jonah and Zachary) and 2 dogs (Maggie and Pepper), our lives are filled with laughter and chaos, and I wouldn’t have it any other way!  My website is a big mix of my personal and professional work. You’ll find it includes a lot of our travel photos, a daily 365 project featuring photos of our every day life and client sessions.  I also believe that my personal work and the images I capture for other families co-exist. One relies on the other and vice versa as I grow as an artist. So, this blog, is very much like me, all over the place, busy, creative and real.  I have the best job in the world.  I get to hang out with great people, big and small, play, have fun and do what I love.

I think it’s an honor to get a glimpse of other people, to see how they live and love and to capture the real and meaningful little details of life.  I hope you’ll stick around and get to know us, and the wonderful families I get to photograph.

Over the years I have poured my heart in to charity work.  My award winning work has been featured in publications including People Magazine, NBC News, Baby Talk Magazine and many more.  I have also been featured by the National Park Service, Fulltime Families and other major brands.

I’ve done interviews with People Magazine, The Today Show, Yahoo News, the New York Times, Parenting Magazine,  and numerous media news outlets around the world featuring birth photography. I am the founder of the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers, an organization that represents over 1,200 birth photographers in 50+ countries.  IAPBP was sold to Liz Cook in 2019 and I am so proud of the heart work Liz continues to pour in to the Association.  I am proud to be one of her biggest cheerleaders and I will continue to support her as she leads the birth photography industry.
