Have you ever considered creating a GIF from your images? A GIF is a small “video” that is created from a burst of images. When you stitch a burst of images together, it almost looks like a stop-motion film.
This year, I did a deep-dive into the heart of my brand as I went through the re-brand process with Amanda Grazioli and Launch Your Daydream. One of the core fundamentals of my brand is to portray ‘life in motion’ with my imagery. This means that I tend to keep families moving during my photography sessions. Active prompts tend to produce genuine reactions and give families something to focus on versus being self-conscious in front of the camera.
I had a session last week with two adorable boys, 5 and 10 years old. The 10 year old told me he had a trick to show me. He positioned his brother and backed wayyyyy up. I had my finger poised at the shutter to make sure I captured all the action!
The next morning, I was showing my 6 year old son the ‘cool trick’ the boys at my session had done. I was quickly scrolling from beginning to end to show him the motion when I had a thought! These images would make a cool GIF! I know I am late to the ballgame having just made my first one this week. Just in case others are late right alongside me, here’s how to create an easy GIF:
I recently shared my own GIF on Instagram and got a fantastic response. You can check out how I incorporated it in my feed here!
What are you waiting for? Go create a GIF of your own and tag me if you do– I’d love to see your creation!
"To say that I love each one would be cliche and a total understatement, but seriously... She nailed it. Being a photographer myself, I am very picky and searched dozens of photographers before coming back to lyndsay and booking her and I am so glad I did. I can't even remember the last time I hired a photographer and was this in love with the images and unable to pick just a few favorites. Thank you, lyndsay, for making the photo session easy (with 3 kids), fun and providing this mama memories for a lifetime.”
"Our images are so special and really captured our joy and the sweet personality of our little girl. Lyndsay did a great job going beyond the typical posed shots and making our photos feel authentic. We will treasure them forever."

"We have done multiple sessions (family and newborn) and we’re so happy with the results. Lyndsay makes you feel comfortable and is able to truly capture the moment. We will have her prints hung in our house for years to come."
