Life in Motion Photography

Life in Motion Photography by Lyndsay Stradtner

My old website was super outdated, embarrassingly so.  Most of the photos on my old site were between 2 and 6 years old.  I considered just keeping my blog and ditching the website, but I wanted a place for my clients to always see my best foot forward, to view my work and to keep myself comfortable with being able to share family snapshots and simple little stories of our every day life here on my blog and not worry about those things being the all important first impression for a client.  Having a dedicated website gives me peace in knowing I can post whatever I want over here.  I bought a new one in January and started to build it.  And then I got busy and I’d work on it maybe 15-20 minutes a week.  It is finally, FINALLY, done and I am so excited to share it with you!  It is a much better, more current, representation of my work, my style, my clients, me.  My hope is that it is simple, easy to use and let’s my work speak for itself.  I still have a few photos to move around, a few things to tweak, but in the meantime, I hope you like it as much as I do!

anyone up for another marathon post? | austin lifestyle family photographer

Love this family.  Love them.  I love documenting a birth for a family, because it ties me to them.  I cannot believe how much the kids have grown, how big and beautiful Lucy is.  Her birth seems like it just happened yesterday.  So many wonderful things, both professionally and personally have come my way because of these beautiful people….they are all kind and warm and just so genuine.  I love that.  And I refused to pick favorites for their blog post….so get ready….this will be a long one!  First shot of the day…..


I will never, ever, ever forget the moment this sweet boy sang this newborn baby girl her very first song.  I photographed it through a massive amount of tears.  Sweetest thing ever.





I know I sound like a broken record, but I really do love the light this time of year…





I firmly believe all parents need photos of just the two of them… many times parents are forgotten when it comes time to take photos, as the focus is on the kids.  Children want to see their parents in love, they need it.  How much will their children cherish these when they are grown?  I hope this is what they will remember, their mom and dad, in it together, loving their family AND each other.




Ahhhhh, Lucy’s gonna get me!!!!!  HA!


LOVE the contrast of these two!  First, being good boys for the photographer…..Second, being boys and doing what fast moving, fun, busy boys do!




Then we gave all the boys a break and took Miss Lucy out to my favorite field…..I’m pretty much in love with these…..


She thinks I’m pretty funny 😉





I think she’s pretty funny too….

K Family, I adore you all – I hope you love your photos!!

And stay tuned for 10 on Tuesday tomorrow for a recap of our halloween and  Saints party tonight.  Plus a story about how Taryn managed to get STUCK in an elevator today.  It’s ok to laugh (MC), I did.  Once she was out of course.  No kidding.  😀
