Finn and Olive | Commercial Children's Photographer

I loved being a part of Finn and Olive's soft and beautiful line of baby blankets and soft, gauzy bows. I've loved Danielle and her vision for a long time. As I have gotten deeper into motherhood, I value beautiful pieces that serve multiple functions, simplifying our lives and closets. I'm so grateful to be step behind the camera and photograph the beauty and love that go into businesses, and I feel grateful to work with brands whose vision I respect and align with goals as well. Also, how lovely is Little Cottonwood's clothing line? Another brand I love and respect.

Thank you Finn and Olive for having me out and photographing such a lovely children's lifestyle and commercial shoot. I loved every minute!

Solstice

Like a river
Like a river
Like a river
Like a river
Like a river
Like a river

Shut your mouth and run me like a river
How do you fall in love?
Harder than a bullet could hit you
How do we fall apart?
Faster than a hair pin trigger
Don’t you say, don’t you say it, don’t say
Don’t you say it, one breath and it’ll just break it
So shut your mouth and run me like a river
— Bishop Briggs

There is power in creation
There is strength in women finding beauty together
There is love in a story

I loved creating this Utah editorial shoot with Amber Reverie and Sophie Kynaston at the Great Salt Lake. I'm in awe of their beauty and strength. The sun set early behind a cloud, robbing us of the late golden light that we were chasing. But how can I regret that, when I found inspiration in the darkness instead. 

Afternoon Sessions | Utah Family Photographer

Life keeps speeding by, in the most beautiful and heartrending of ways. The moments I remember, the moments I cherish are small ones. Lucy sleeping on my chest, my first, building tents with Jack, Nora coloring under the table. The walks in the park with Oliver, healing our hearts as we tried so hard for babies. Those walks, those snuggles, tackles, and sticky popsicles, sticky fingers, sticky kisses. Those are the memories that I hold onto. Those are the hands, constantly growing in my hold, that I miss. 

I wanted to create a session that tapped into the beauty of each home, each family, whether the story is of two, or two + puppies, or a family with bike rides, running through the sprinklers. These lazy, magic summer days are what I want to capture. I think those are the moments you want too. 

For the summer I'm offering The Afternoon Sessions. A one hour session centered around an activity that tells the story of your family. I want to work with you, to really get at the heart of who you are, and what is your truth and story. Afternoon sessions are $350, 1 hour, 3 rolls of film, and a consultation to understand where your family finds it's beauty. From making cookies, to brushing hair, reading and sleeping. These moments are heirlooms. A story that is constantly shifting and changing. 

For Ashley's in-home session, we captured her snuggling Maci, reading to her and watching the world spin by. It was everything small, and everything epic at the same time. It felt so pure and so real. I took these photos remembering me and Lucy, just the two of us, our world encompassed in afternoons. Thank you Ashley for letting me into your beautiful home, and capturing your sweet love for your daughter. 

Let's tell your story together! I would love to document your love. For more information please email me at: lindseystewartphotography@gmail.com.
