Life and Lens Blog’s New Look!

And suddenly you know: It’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.Meister Eckhart

Change means that what was before wasn’t perfect. People want things to be better.  Esther Dyson, Scientist

If you’ve visited our blog or social media lately, you may notice that we’ve made a few changes of our own around here. As Life + Lens continues to grow – to expand our community of photographers, families and vendors as well as to continually increase the breadth of resources and inspiration we provide – we felt it was time to spruce things up a bit around here.

This is something we’ve wanted to do for awhile and are excited to finally check it off our Life + Lens “To Do” list! There are only two of us behind the scenes here at L+L, both of us with families and young children, our own photography businesses, part-time jobs, volunteer work , etc. . . . and there’s only so much time in one day as we all know too well! So although it didn’t happen as soon as we would have liked, we also feel that it’s happening at exactly the right time and is just what we needed in order to take Life + Lens to the next level.

So without further ado . . . (we’ve always wanted to say that!) take a look at our new logo! Our hope is that it honors both where we came from at the start of this blog and where we hope to go in the near future and for years to come.


We also hope this new look lives up to the gorgeous photography that you all send in to us. We hope that when we feature your sessions and your images that this new, more polished and professional looking blog will be even better for showing off your images and your talents and make you feel even more proud to share your successes and to “brag” about your work being featured here.  We have also updated our badges for featured photographers, families, stylists and/or vendors and we hope you will love displaying them on your websites, blogs and/or social media. If you’ve been featured on our blog or our instagram , feel free to grab one of these badges and show it off with pride! Don’t forget to link it back to your feature(s) if applicable.  Life + Lens Photographer Directory  members, we will also be emailing you updated “Member” badges so keep your eyes out for those.


As always, we thank you so much for all of the support you guys give to us, for the incredible work you send in, for tagging us on Instagram (as of today, there are currently over 92,000 images on instagram with the #lifeandlensblog tag!) and most of all for the many, many positive and supportive comments that you give to each other on our social media. That’s what makes us the happiest and why we love what we do!  Our community is made up of genuine members who interact with one another and understand the value of “Community over Competition.” We wouldn’t have it any other way!

Here’s to change and the magic of new beginnings!

life, lens, love,

Lisa and Rachel
