Hey there! I’m Lindsey, the one behind the camera at Lindsey Walker Photography. I started this journey back in 2006 with my first camera shooting landscapes. I must admit, I am a BIG introvert and never had an interest in photographing people when I started out. I had a career as a sonographer, and just was doing photography as a hobby. A few friends had babies around the time I was really getting to learning my camera, so I started playing around…because who doesn’t love babies?!?! Well, it was instant love. I started taking classes to learn more about my camera settings, lighting, posing, etc (online and in person) and really diving into building a portfolio in 2008. I started out in business as a lot of photographers do–shooting anything & everything. Families, seniors, babies, events, a few weddings for friends. I soon discovered that between my full time sonography career & my business on the side that I was getting burnt out, and fast. I had to sit down and really think about why I got into it as a business in the first place and where my true passion lied. BABIES. I love ’em. Can’t get enough of them. Everything about them is so perfectly perfect and deserves to be captured. So I began slowly honing in on maternity, newborns, and babies up to a year. I mentored with two of the top newborn photographers in the country in 2011 and 2013. I wanted to learn everything the right way–how to get those perfect squishy poses and lighting all while keeping baby’s comfort and safety as the number one priority. I have been working for years honing in on my “style” and working to create beautiful images for families to cherish forever. When I had my son in 2014 I cut back to part time at my sonography job, and then when we relocated to Knoxville in early 2016 I left it all together to just focus on my business and being a mom. My son is my UNIVERSE and God has blessed me immensely to be able to have a job I’m so passionate about and be home so much with him while he’s young. A few other facts about me: I don’t love chocolate or ice cream, but if you bring fro-yo or a cupcake my way watch out; I am obsessed with Chick Fil A lemonade (well, really anything at CFA!); I snort when I laugh; I have a twin brother who is my complete polar opposite–we look and act nothing alike; I have this great desire to be awesomely organized, but in reality I’m a borderline hoarder (my prop stash is out of control).
I truly hope that my love for this shines in my work, and I take great honor in being chosen as your photographer. There are a lot of photographers out there, so it really does mean a lot when someone chooses me and my style. Thanks again for visiting my site and I hope to hear from you soon!
