Why should the couples have all the fun? Galentine's Day was created as a day for women to celebrate their friendships with those who mean the most to them. Let us help you do that with a one-of-a-kind experience that gets you laughing, crying, and having all the feels. And...even better...we will capture the moment for you, allowing you to be in the moment and not worried about the photos.
This is the "girl power" era (go Barbie!). Let's celebrate our friendships and show the world how to be kinder, gentler, and fierce af!
As women, we can get in our heads about our bodies. We can be hyper-critical of ourselves and that voice in our heads can be downright mean! We live with the ultimate "mean girl" 24/7, 365.
As a photographer who works with high school seniors, I see first-hand hour nerve-wracking being in photos can be - it's a very brave thing to put yourself in front of the camera! EVERYONE feels self-conscious when a camera is pointing at them - no matter the body type!
At Stacey Lyn Boutique Photography, we are skilled in coaching you to relax for photos, and we know your best angles & poses to help you feel beautiful and empowered.
We want to take that up a notch by inviting your girl squad along for the journey - because there is no better "hype squad" than your bffs!
Our Galentine's Day experience gives women an opportunity to have time together with their friends, documented through photos, and also to give each individual woman a platform to learn to love her body no matter her size, with the encouragement of her friends behind her. It also gives each woman the opportunity to appreciate one another and celebrate their unique friendships.
If you've ever had the feeling that you're not enough, not thin enough, not pretty enough, not ______ ( fill in the blank) enough, or just not comfortable in front of the camera, these sessions are for YOU! It's 2024. Let's make the BOLD choice to love our bodies and ourselves by stepping in front of the camera with our own personal cheering section beside us every step of the way!

A Galentine's Day Gift Bag filled with gifts/discounts from local businesses
Before your photo session, you get the chance to shop our pop-up Galentine's boutique. Then you will take a seat at the table(s) provided. At every place setting, each of you will be given 2 Galentine's Day Cards (along with a beverage and snacks while you engage in your next activity)!
You will draw the name of one of the friends present, and write an uplifting note on the back of one of your cards for that friend. (We'll have prompts to help with the writing process!)
The second card is to write a note to yourself. If you struggle with quieting your inner "mean girl", we encourage you to think of your best friend saying the same thing about themselves. If you wouldn't let them (or anyone else) say that to your friend, why are you allowing those things to be said to you? Learn to be kinder to yourself, and treat yourself like you treat your friends. This is where the idea of writing a note to yourself comes from.
Once everyone is done writing, notes will be exchanged! You may share them with one another, or keep the sentiment to yourself - your choice!
My session with Stacey was unforgettably wonderful! Stacey is the most positive & empowering woman I have met! I cannot recommend her professionalism & dedication enough - my pictures turned out better than I could have ever imagined!

- Book dinner at a nice restaurant afterwards to talk about the experience & get some more quality time together!
I'm a quirky, coffee-obsessed gal who never grew up. I am TERRIFIED of bees, always forget to take my lens cap off at the start of a shoot (rolls eyes) and secretly think I should be on SNL or American Idol.
The fastest way to my heart is through food (bonus points for strong coffee & buffalo chicken dip...just not together!). I live life on my own terms, walk my own path, and am fiercely loyal & extremely protective of the people I love.
