Love Blooms in July

To create a “story book” photo, Aubree Lynn coordinated a photo shoot at Pacific Southwest Railway Museum, located in La Mesa, CA. The shoot was styled by Stylishly Aubree Lynn, with photography by Tina Lynn Stout.

There are so many ways to announce big events in your life. I would like to think I try and create announcements that are special to our family, and that fit our theme from when we got engaged to the events that have happened to date. I am all about an over all experience for those who know us best. For those who don’t, we want to make them feel included in our life story.

In January of this year we had the pleasure of announcing the arrival of our second child. This was done through a series of vintage-styled photos set to music that tell a story. Respectfully, our family theme is Storybook Romance, a vintage-inspired romance that has carried on for six years since our engagement in 2011. For every event (chapter), we develop an idea and take photos to match a storyboard that we create. For this announcement it was no different. I wondered, and searched for a variety of concepts. After thinking about us (our personality and style), I decided to choose an historical landmark in La Mesa called Pacific Southwest Railway Museum. We decided on the number three stationary train, and dressed in vintage attire.

Lucky for me, the clothing I chose we already had in our wardrobes. The boys wore Newsies’ caps and jeans. My 21-month old wore Toms’ shoes that had a brogue style and a Cat and Jack knit sweater. My husband wore a white button down with a Kenneth Cole Reaction vest. As for me, I went all vintage: my outfit included a stylish hat; pencil skirt that had a fish tail back; white blouse; lace stockings; and short, black lace up leather boots. We played with various angles of the train and different poses. We had a total of six shots that made for a perfect announcement that totally suited our family.

Our Storybook Romance – chapter four – continues in July of this year. We are excited for this new beginning and can’t wait to continue to unfold the pages of our lives through photos that tell our story.
