Feel free to cozy up with your favorite beverage (if you're like me, then maybe it's an espresso over ice with a splash of cream, or a warm matcha latte if it's cold outside!) and stay awhile. This is my place to share not just beautiful weddings or sessions, but to share my life. My hope is through this, you'll get to know a bit more about me and all the beautiful people that make it worth living!

Lifesong’s new look & some giveaways

It’s here! It’s here! The day is FINALLY here! About eight months ago, I was working with a graphic design artist who was graciously designing a website for the Delight Retreat. When I saw the completed Delight website & logo, I knew I wanted to hire her for Lifesong! I knew it was time to have an updated look and something that was new, fresh and showcased who we are!

My heart is full of joy knowing that the day is finally here where our websites are up and going and we get to share our new blog with you!  I think owning a photography business is an ever-evolving process of growing, changing & learning.  Lifesong Photography unofficially had its first sessions in October of 2009. . .since then we’ve been through two logos and two blogs and one website.  This is the look I’ve been envisioning and dreaming of since we started!  I want to send a HUGE thank you and shout out to Meg Long of Meg Long Creative for her brilliant mind, for making me think, for putting up with so much brainstorming and for being so talented and gifted!  It’s exactly what I wanted but couldn’t describe. . .and yet from the numerous chats & our collaborative pinterest boards, she figured me out when I couldn’t figure it out myself! :)   It’s been such a blessing to work with such a sweet, patient and thoughtful woman who has become a dear friend.  I couldn’t be more thrilled with how it all turned out!

We are so excited to have a space on the web that feels just like us! A place where we can regularly share what we’ve been up to.  If you ask anyone, they will tell you “what you see is what you get”. I’m pretty real and don’t beat around the bush. So my posts will be about recent sessions, homeschooling, the life of being a mom & whatever is on my mind! :)  I know Emily is going to be sharing her adventures coming up as well as some fun recipes and mouth watering images!

If you don’t know us and want to get to know a little bit about our mother-daughter team, check out our new websites!!  We have three different websites that cater to our three main passions:  Lifesong Weddings, Lifesong Kids, Lifesong Seniors.  I (Kristin) will personally be focusing more on the children’s portion of Lifesong, Emily will be mainly focusing on the Seniors, but we both love nothing more than the joy of the wedding day!

We appreciate all of our clients & all those who have supported, encouraged and believed in us.  The past few years have been some of the best of my life!  My best memories have been shooting weddings with my precious Emily. . .I can’t image anything better than to be in business with her!! Over the next month, Emily and I will both be sharing our personal Lifesong with you. . .what is happening in our lives, where we feel God leading us & how excited we are about the future of Lifesong Photography!

Emily and I decided to have a little giveaway as a thank you to all of you who have supported and encouraged us on this journey.

    Oh I love it! It’s so fresh and fun. Beautiful!

  2. Sarah K. says:

    Whoops, favorite season. :-) My favorite season is Fall, for numerous reasons. I love the coolness, the fields ready for harvest, the trips to the orchard…and I love the colors. It’s just so perfect for pictures, you know?

  3. Sarah K. says:

    I liked you FB page a few months ago (you guys are amazing). I pinned to Pinterest also.

  4. The site looks amazing!!!! I love the Fall season because I love the crisp morning weather with the sunshine peaking through the trees. I love hot drinks in my mug and God’s Word outside on the rocker. I love wearing my jeans & tshirt with flipflops and my zippered hoodie. There’s nothing about the fall season that I don’t love…pumpkin, spices, decorations, smells…it’s all a Delight!! :)

  5. Megan Becker says:

    My most favorite season is autumn! The reason being is that my mom and I take out all of our “autumny-home-decorations.” We like to make the home feel warm, and welcoming! The smell of dutch apple pie is a favorite. My dad also becomes the baker in the house and makes so many pies, pumpkin pie is his favorite. It’s such a treat to have dad cook! Our family also has made it a tradition to go pumpkin picking, and then we make a stew that goes into the pumpkin…of course after it’s been cleaned out. The stew is cooked in the pumpkin! It’s such a fun time for our family. It’s something I’ll always remember!

  6. Rebecca LeAnne Rigsby says:

    So happy for you, Mrs. Kristin! I hope The Lord will greatly bless you and your daughter! :) Winter is definitely my favorite season!

  7. Emily Gluntz says:

    gahhh!!! seriously can’t get over my excitement for y’all!!! everything looks so beautiful!! I love SUMMER! It’s my favorite season because the days are long, the evenings warm & the food fresh:) Love you two!!!

  8. Suzanne S says:

    The new site is… BEAUTIFUL! Nice job ladies!

    My favorite season is, by far, autumn. The smell of ripe apples, diesel tractors and damp orchard grass in rooted in my soul. Autumn wouldn’t be autumn without harvest & those glorious smells.

  9. Laura says:

    I love the new look! My favorite season is summer. It is a time when the kids are home and our calendars are not overloaded. Love the freedom from the schedules and the time to reconnect and focus on relationships. :)

  10. Jackie says:

    Kristin, it is FABULOUS!! I am so very excited for you and Emily! My fave season is fall, hands down…cannot wait for the trees to turn!

  11. Amy W. says:

    Love love love the new site! My fav season is summer, for sure, although autumn is a close second.

  12. Mollie says:

    I love Summer because I love the beach!! :)

  13. hmm favourite season – summer , because of the wonderful rain. also the new look is fabulous !

  14. Allie says:

    Oh, Kristin and Emily, I’m so excited for you and I love your new branding! Delight has been such an amazing part of my life for the past 5 months and you have no idea how much of an inspiration you both are to me. Thank you!!

  15. I just can’t get over how perfect your new brand is!! It’s so beautiful and a fabulous representation of you two. ;) Love it so much!

    My favorite season is fall, all the way! Sweaters, boots, crunchy leaves, hot chocolate, pumpkins, scarves… *happy sigh*. So wonderful.

    Lifesong Photography has been liked (of course!) & I follow both of you on instagram. :) Love y’all!!

  16. Moriah Sutton says:

    Lovee the new blog and site!!

    My favorite season is Fall! I love the cool weather, the pretty colorful trees, and of course the cute boots, and scarfs you can wear during Fall. ;) Pretty much love everything about Fall!

  17. Katie Hover says:

    Hi Kristin and Emily, love the new look! As for a favorite season – it’s a toss up between summer and fall. I love summer because of the warm weather, weddings, and being home with my kids but I love the bounty of fall, cooler weather, fall colors, and making soups!

  18. Summer means long walks, song birds, late nights that are warm and the sound of sprinklers and lawn mowers. It is my favorite season because the berries, cherries and stone fruit are ripe. There is playing at the lake and time to talk and dream. I love the heat and driving down the highway with the windows down. Summer is when The Lord reminds me to play! Smiles seem bigger, sleep comes easily, and staring at the stars at night with family is an occasion!

  19. I think my favorite season is probably Fall, The air is perfect, The trees are gorgeous, everything smells like a campfire or pumpkin and I get to where all of my scarves in my collection! Love your new site! It is GORGEOUS!

  20. Angela Mott says:

    I love the new look! Oh and I love fall!!

  21. April Miller says:

    Kristen, your new website is beautiful! I always enjoy looking at your pictures & so does my little photobug! Love the pictures of Bobbi on here:) Your wedding pictures make me want to get Chad to marry me again…hehe!

  22. Amy B. says:

    I absolutely love it! It’s beautiful, it’s fun, and full of God’s light! I just love the mother-daughter team you guys have and the joy that shines through you both! My favorite season would have to be summer – swimming, picnics, vacations, and sunshine all shout happiness to me!

  23. A. Hudson says:

    So beautiful. Just like the two of you. So excited to have Emily doing Alyssa’s Sr. pictures. :)

  24. Molly says:

    I love Winter! I love Christmas, starting off a new year, cute sweaters and boots, and being nestled under a warm blanket reading a good book with hot coffee!

  25. Sarah says:

    So fun to see your photography business take off and bloom in the last few years! Look at how far you have come. I love your photos and am so blessed to have had you and Emily take pictures for us. HUGS!

  26. brecke english says:

    Ladies, it’s absolutely JUST RIGHT! So crisp and clean, like looking through a pottery barn magazine. It makes me want to have more children, and a Senior, and a daughter getting married. Oh wait, I did! Can NOT wait to see the pictures! In the meantime, I will enjoy what has grown to be my favorite season. Fall. It means, beautiful scenery and crisp cool nights, and FOOTBALL! (and that means more date nights with my honey!)
    Amazing job.
    I look forward to following your progress!
    Keep up the good work!

    The new website is beautiful! I loved reading about both of you and looking through all your gorgeous photographs. My favorite season is spring, because I love watching all the colors wake up after a long season of cold and wet and gray.

  48. Hands down, spring is my favorite season. It promises new growth and change. I love the first time we cut the grass and the smell after an afternoon of rain. Gorgeous new site!! So excited for you guys!!

  49. Jana Long says:

    I don’t think I’ve entered this yet! I LOVE your new blogsite! it’s so beautiful! So is your website! My favorite season is Fall – it’s still beautiful weather here in CA, but the evenings get chilly, so I can totally enjoy a decaf coffee or hot cocoa!

  50. Jessica says:

    My favorite season is Fall because of scarves! I’m a t-shirt and jeans kind of gal and a scarf makes it all come together. AND… keeps me warm on top of it. Practical and stylish. Also, fall colors are gorgeous!!

  51. Irene Bazan says:

    My favorite season is summer! Wow the Lord has been good to you! So happy for you. I still remember back in 2009 when you took our pictures at the college, you were just beginning your career. Be blessed in all you do!

  52. Beth says:
