We've been dreaming of spending more time in Florida and we finally did it, we found a place that we love and that we can travel back and forth from. It's 1/2 a mile from the beach, 3 minute drive to the beach, it's amazing! I'm spending my mornings editing, afternoon soaking in the sun at the beach, and evenings shooting beautiful families! It's so good guys, I wish you all could do it and be here for the summer with us! My evenings have filled up so quickly with sessions that I've had to open up sunrise sessions for families and it's just as pretty in the morning as it is in the evening. This is a dream for us, this is what we've wanted for a long time! I can't believe we get to live in both states. I will never leave my Oklahoma but ti's nice to split my year between Oklahoma and Florida!
Another beautiful family from Oklahoma in Florida! Yesterday was a bit frantic with the tropical storm, we were trying to avoid getting rained on. Momma really wanted a beach session so we bumped up her session time and headed to the beach and WE MADE IT! We did it, we shot the beach session and the storm clouds made for a beautiful sky! Here is their sneak from the session yesterday.
These boys...I've been working with these sweet boys since they are little newborns! It's been so fun watching them grow up and their mom is the sweetest! I love working with them, I see them often 😉 they ROCKED this session! I mean completely ROCKED IT!
Shot the cutest session at Will Rogers Park, it's always busy there but I just love that it's so green there. This sweet family brought their little one to me for her 1st birthday and we had a pretty great time!
My favorite image of her may be the center image, got to love a close up!
It's been such a fun time here in Florida shooting on the beach and working with clients from Oklahoma. I never knew there were so many families from Oklahoma that visit this area, it's amazing! Check out my first session here...
Somewhere on a beach....FLORIDA PHOTOGRAPHER
It was bound to happen, we love the beach so much that we just had to do it! We got a place in Florida! We plan on spending most of our summer here and we are traveling back to Oklahoma on weekends to shoot weddings, sessions, and minis. It's a lot of driving but totally worth it! This week while we've been here doing our Florida thang I've shot a ton of sessions. Check them out!
Would you love for me to capture your newborn session? Do you live in a state other then Oklahoma and Florida? If you answered yes to that check out the pricing down below! I can travel to you and capture your little ones first photos! If you'd like to book please let me know, you can email me at LETSTALK@LGPBYLISA.COM

Now that you've done your newborn session you may be wondering what other photos do we do? What packages does LGP offer? I want to document my baby's first year so how do I do that?
Don't worry I have you covered!
We have two special packages we offer!
WATCH ME GROW: This package is the most genius way to capture your growing baby!
You get 12-5 minute sessions (one, 5 minute session each month) we use one of these amazing backdrops (down below) to show the babies month and how much they've grown! We can add their name to it as well as weight if you have that information available. You receive 2 digital files that you can download and print to put in your baby book! We have the following backdrops to select from! (these images are not mine they are from the backdrop company)
This package is $300.00 the package is only for the baby, no family shots or sibling shots can be added.
We also offer the GROW WITH ME PACKAGE: The GROW WITH ME PACKAGE is a bit different than the package above. With the GROW WITH ME PACKAGE you receive 4 session (3,6,9,12 months) they are up to 1 hour sessions at the studio or on a location. You then receive 20-45 digital files in a gallery where you can view or order prints from. The great thing about this package is that if you decide you want all the files in that gallery you get them at a discounted rate! SUPER DISCOUNTED! Each gallery however requires a purchase, galleries can not be bundled.
The GROW WITH ME PACKAGE is for baby however I let the family add one family setting to 1 session but no more then that. (Immediate family only)
The GROW WITH ME PACKAGE IS $550.00 FOR 4 SESSIONS (THAT IS $137.50 A SESSION!!!!).
EACH GALLERY IS $200.00 IF YOU PURCHASE ALL THE DIGITAL FILES OR YOU CAN PURCHASE PRINTS OR INDIVIDUAL FILES BUT I'LL BE HONEST YOUR BEST SAVINGS IS PURCHASINGTHE ENTIRE GALLERY FOR $200.00, NORMALLY THE GALLERY IS $435.00. THAT IS A $235 SAVINGS FOR EACH GALLERY!!!
To book either of these packages please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
We DOMINATED these glitter minis! They were the most fun mini to shoot and yes we did get glitter every where but it was totally worth it! If you are child photographer and think it's not worth it, you are missing out! The excitement from the kids is unreal and the memories you make for them is so magical! We shot these the entire month of February so there is still way more to edit but here are a few from the first weekend of them!
We've been asked to share inside photos of the Mobile Newborn Studio so here you go!
You may be asking, what is the MOBILE NEWBORN STUDIO? It's a studio I bring to you where I create those beautiful newborn shots without you having to leave your home! We realize how hard it is to get out of the house with your new baby and sometimes siblings so we created this space that we can travel with! When you book the MOBILE NEWBORN STUDIO not only do you get studio like shots of your baby but you also get lifestyle shots of your family in your home! It's the best of both!!
We have already booked 8 newborn sessions for April with this beauty and we can't wait for everyone to have a wonderful experience with it!
My clients are excited about this beauty since it's the 1st of it's kind!!! I don't know anyone else who can bring this experience to you. We do travel all of Oklahoma and Florida so there are no locations that are out of the question!!
If you'd like to book your MOBILE NEWBORN STUDIO please email us at LETSTALK@LGPBYLISA.COM
Ok, by now a lot of you have requested the information for the class which is GREAT! Thank you so much for taking an interest in the class I'm offering!
Some of you may be wondering, well why do I have to do this class first before I'm offered a more advanced class. I'm going to tell you why right now!
BECAUSE......... I have to start fresh with you! When you start doing photography and pick up things here and there or on your own or from people who aren't experts in certain styles GUESS WHAT you learn bad techniques! Don't get me wrong I still do this on occasion but I catch myself and I correct it because I've taught myself to catch it.
Some may say, well I don't like her edits, well guess what? Oh well!!!! Because I like it and people like it and you may be thinking the same thing but how large is your client base or fan base? If the answer is not very large then I can help you because there may be something that isn't connecting your audience to your images and you know what they may be.....BAD TECHNIQUES.
With this first class I create a profile on you based on the 5 images your send in and I take a look at your work on Facebook and website (if you have one). I write down things I think we need to work on, I'm not here to pick apart your photography and make you feel bad about it, I WANT TO HELP! If I can see there is a style you gravitate towards I can help you fine tune it! ART is different, we all have different styles. For the longest time I was stuck on "I WANT BRIGHT AND COLORFUL" and I would cringe when people asked for a particular look but then it dawned on me, I'm here to create a memory for them and they will have these in their homes forever. Do I want to just give them what I want and then they not be able to display these images in their home? I want people to see my work! I want them to be happy! So I expanded my editing style! If you look back through all my images on Facebook you can see how I have evolved and you know what....CLIENTS TELL ME ALL THE TIME THEY LOVE THE NEW CHANGES AND THEY LOVE WHAT THEY'VE BEEN SEEING THE LAST COUPLE YEARS!
Guys, that makes you feel great when you hear that! All my time doing workshops and purchasing new actions and using new programs IS PAYING OFF!
Why are you hesitating? I could throw a quick workshop up on how to get business, how to get known BUT in the long run this won't help because your work won't change and it won't capture your audience or your ideal audience! You don't always want be shooting a $75 mini session or a $200 newborn session, you will work yourself to the bone and you will eventually give up and quit your business. If you better your images you can charge more and work less, or you may be so big that you work all the time because EVERYONE wants your photos and they don't mind paying the price and then you have to hire people to work for you!
Which do you want to do?
Just take a look at the images from when I first started (Pirate ship) to where I am now (Dirt road)....Look at the skies, looks at the coloring! When I shot the pirate ship I had no idea what I was doing but I thought I did, WAS I WRONG!
The dirt road image, I've learned and I've worked hard to expand my style and to make that DARN SKY LOOK NATURAL! The sky was all me, I kept trying and trying to figure how how to make it look natural and now weird. In the ADVANCED classes this is what you can learn!
WHY ARE YOU HESITATING?!
As a photographer I am on Facebook a lot because that is apart of my business. I often see images like the ones below and they make me ask questions like....
Why is she out of focus? The tree is in focus but she's isn't, how does no one see that?
Is that baby green? What is wrong with her skin?
Why are those baby's lips so bright red, why does his hand look so big?!
Is her skin made of plastic? It's super shiny! She looks like a doll!
OH lord why is that photo so tilted?! Who has a diagonal frame?
Why is that little girl glowing?!
And then I remember IT'S BECAUSE NO ONE HAS TAUGHT NEWBIES (NEW PHOTOGRAPHERS) ABOUT THIS! Everyone pays for the class to learn newborn poses but they still don't master it and people CAN TELL. Newbies pay to learn the business side, which is great don't get me wrong but did they show you about lighting? Do you know how to avoid making people so red they look like umpa lumpas? Do you wonder why others succeed and you're stuck in a rut? Do you notice your photo isn't sharp or the baby isn't in focus but you STILL post it?! Because I can.
It's those mistakes that separate your work! You may be thinking "BUT I BOOK A TON!" but I can guarantee you that it's because you are charging $75 for a mini or under $250 for newborn session but yet you are spending 2-4 hours shooting that newborn session and maybe 6+hours editing it so tell me was all that time really worth it for $250.00.
Don't you want to make your work better? I know I did!
I wanted to spend more time with my family and less time trying to fix all my mistakes that I should of done from the beginning because I was spending HOURS behind the computer and it STILL wasn't looking right.
I see so many mistakes on photos that come across my newsfeed and I am always asked to offer a class so I finally decided to do so BUT I will only take on 5 photographers. I will select 5 from the list of interested photographers and I will HELP YOU MAKE IT BETTER!
I am self taught and I am STILL learning and taking classes to better myself and my work. I don't teach anything I've learned because it's not fair or right to steal from others workshops but I teach you EVERYTHING I wish I would of learned sooner and taught myself.
I will ask you to submit 5 photos and I will critique them before we even start the class so I can help narrow down what you need to work on and what we need to make you stand out and better your work.
The class will take place in May at my studio, the class will be 5-6 hours. I will teach you prepping for the session through editing your session.
For more information or to be added to the list of photographs interested please email me at LISA@LGPBYLISA.COM
⬇️ These images are from when I first started. It hurts my eyes to see them now after learning what I have. I would of KILLED to know what I do now then.

Love how this all came together, love that Michael was able to create such a cute and unique little rocket ship! It amazes me that he can always make what ever crazy idea I throw his way!
I think these are my favorite whimsical photos I've ever done!
Well, we are back at it at the studio but my goodness it's been busy busy! Normally it's pretty slow in January but that is not the case! Here are few photos of what we've been working on!
