Welcome to Life + Lens — the blog for sharing fabulous family photography and celebrating special family moments, big and small. Life + Lens blog will be a place for showcasing family photography and highlighting inspirational work from photographers, stylists, event planners and families from all over the world. Here we will celebrate families in all their forms and will be inspired by the special relationships between loved ones and by the many ways to celebrate the joy of family and family life.

We are so excited to be launching this passion project today! After much preparation and anticipation we are proud to bring you this new space for celebrating the heart and soul of families and family photography. Visit us on a regular basis to see a showcase of beautiful family sessions, of milestone celebrations; for inspiration as you plan your next birthday party, nursery reveal, styled photo session and so much more. We are a resource for photographers, parents and family members, stylists, event planners and anyone who just loves celebrating families, love and life!

Today we bring you our first featured family photography session. As we are a blog that celebrates family and photography, what better way to kick off our first showcase than with this gorgeous family session from Angie Blackburn Photography, complete with vintage cameras!

What we love:

Rachel and Lisa: Where to we begin? This session is full of beautiful light; a lush and romantic location – just right for this 40s style themed shoot; Styling is on point, and the session is so inspired!

Angie: I loved that this family had an idea to do a 40s style family session – complete with the hats and suspenders. I think they turned out so cute! We had great light and a great family that day!

Gear: Canon 5d Markii

Lens: Canon 70-200L 2.8
