The girl taking the pictures
Kathleen Lynn Photography
So yeah.. honestly, I always thought writing “about mes” were super awkward. It makes me feel like I’m on a dating app.. But, since you’re here and curious, let me make use of your time! I’m an avid traveler, Amazon Primer, self-taught photographer and an honored dog-mom. I grew up in the backwoods of the Appalachian Mountains where I spent 99% of my childhood outside riding ATV’s with my brothers and swimming in the creek with my sister. I fell in love with traveling around the age of 21 and I’ve come to realize it brings me a sense of peace. It widens my perspective and resets my body and mind. I’ve traveled to multiple states and countries including Hawaii, California, Canada, Colorado and the Bahamas. While traveling and working full time, I graduated from Robert Morris University with a bachelors in Organizational Leadership.
Overall, I’m pretty cool. People would say I’m bold, I have a sense of humor and I get straight to the point. I can “vibe” with anyone and we’ll probably be besties by the end of the day. I’m also funny and so is my laugh. I consider myself a low key hippy which is transparent in my photography style.

How You Arrived Here
I get asked all the time “So how did you get into photography?” Well… I didn’t intentionally. Taking pictures was always a hobby of mine. I would take pictures of waves, trees, surfers, mountains, seashells, people fishing, family members at celebrations. But I would always pay attention to detail, angles, lighting and I found so much joy in editing my pictures. Ironically enough I was always the one in charge of taking the pictures at family gathers. I never took my hobby serious though until September 2022. After my sister’s wedding in September, I was so intrigued by the role of photographer. It was her responsibility to capture every detail, the candid moments, the pre-planned portraits, the prompts and poses. I wanted to be her. I wanted to be the one who was responsible for one the biggest moments. Oddly enough, I took my grandma’s vintage Polaroid camera to the wedding that day. I snapped a few pictures, showed them to my sister a few weeks later and her reaction was something I’ll never forget. From that day on I knew photography my calling was. I invested in a Nikon then quickly upgraded to a Canon R6. I would watch Youtube morning till night, ask other professionals, read articles, watched educational reels, join other photographers at weddings and sessions. I was doing anything to improve my photography skills. Fast forward a year, I’m now traveling to different states for elopements, booking weddings left and right and packing in my schedule with sessions.
