Celtic Gray Photography

Celtic Gray Photography Baby, family, maternity & life photography. Now Booking 2019!

My name is Megan Tynan and I live in NoVa with my husband and two daughters & one son. I fell in love with photography as I watched my children grow and found myself wishing I could slow time down and soak in each and every second of their lives. Photographs have allowed me to watch the world through their eyes and find the little things in life to be awe-inspiring. I adore spending time behind the lens, while getting the privilege of watching people's love reveal itself. My goal is to use natural light to capture images that show real emotion and beauty- especially that shown in people's eyes. www.celticgrayphotography.com contains portfolio and pricing information. Please contact me via e-mail regarding session scheduling and travel feasibility. Thank you for visiting my site- please enjoy the beautiful world through my lens.

Going into the weekend like 😁😆😂



I’m opening my calendar today to figure out the feasibility of spring sessions. We just got the kids’ sport schedules and we’re covered in lacrosse and soccer. I’ll get back to emails ASAP! @ Loudoun County, Virginia

Well 2019 looks like the year I’ll be putting family first. As our family expands, I will be slowing down and not scheduling sessions far in advance for the fall.

I am forever thankful and honored to have worked with so many amazing families and I hope to see you in the upcoming weeks and months. I am hopeful for a "mini" fall season, but wanted to be upfront in my family's plans as I know so many of you are advanced planners like me. Please shoot me a message if there are any requests and I will keep a running list to try to make gorgeous sessions still happen this year.

Thank you. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU. Thank for welcoming me into your lives and showing me the incredible love that exists in the world. Your families are breath-taking and I'm honored to have documented moments that will forever speak for themselves.

What defines me. My people. My core 5.5 and the families that raised us. I’m so excited to finally be getting happiness on our walls (we bought our home last spring haha). Clean, simplicity, my heart. Need help with your pictures? I advise on it all and we can make magic happen 😍✨

Celtic Gray headquarters is growing this summer!!! We’re completing our lucky four leaf clover and thrilled to add to our organized chaos! My fall schedule will be reduced as we soak in the time as a family but I’ll try to squeeze in as many of my favorites as possible! 🍀🍀🍀🍀

Day 14 of my Grateful Days of Thanksgiving: parents who play hard and love harder. Parents who aren’t bystanders but a part of the party. Those parents who tackle a photo session with all the joy and positive energy and incentives one can imagine. Every little bit you do is noticed and appreciated. So many times I leave a session thinking “gosh those kids have no idea how lucky they are to call those people Mom and Dad.”

Day 13 of my Grateful Days of Thanksgiving: grandparents. I’m so grateful for grandparents that are so adored and made present in family photos. This fall I have had more sessions that included the grandparent generation and it always means the world to me. I know my kiddos wouldn’t be who they are today with the love of their grandparents and I love how many clients are celebrating that love this season!!!

Day 10 of my Grateful Days of Thanksgiving: gorgeous sunsets. I’m so thankful for gorgeous sunsets that light up my world with the most magnificent glow. 2019 will be a very different year for me. It will have completely different packages and a whole lot of extended sessions with sunsets. It’s where my heart is and where the true art lies.

Day 9 of my Grateful Days of Thanksgiving- playful parents. I am SO grateful for parents who jump around like monkeys behind me while we capture all the smiles. Swipe right 👉🏻 to see the picture we got before his sweet parents jumped into action (although I do love a good “blue steel” face 😂). @ Red Rock Overlook Regional Park

Day 8 of my Grateful Days of Thanksgiving: TWINS! There’s just something so special about getting to capture the amazing bond of twins! These twins were practically babies when I first met them and I have seen them every year since I started a photography business. They never fail to keep me on my toes and get me giggling with their contagious laughter! 👦🏽👦🏽😂

Day 6 of my Grateful Days of Thanksgiving: I’m beyond grateful to the women and men in uniform who gave us, and protect, our right to vote. These are individuals who sacrifice it all and there is not a day that goes by that I forget how incredibly lucky I am to live in this great country. With that being said, I excitedly and humbly voted in our midterm elections today- all three kids in tow!

It’s October... or as I like to put it: “Be kind to your friend who is a family photographer” month. Sorry for the radio silence here! I’m flying through galleries faster than I can post them. I have DOZENS of sessions that are being edited, just from the last week... and dozens more before Thanksgiving! This has been a really special fall photography season for me. So many of you, I realized, have been with me for 10+ sessions... that’s a whole lotta beauty. I’m honored and never take the opportunity to photograph you all for granted! 🍁📷🍂

As I’m flying through my fall sessions, I’m realizing how much of my success in my business has been because of those around me lifting me up. My husband telling me I. can. do. ANYTHING. My cousin (hey hey @christinetager) who told me to pick up my camera and make the jump! My sweet photographer friend (who, let’s face it, could have looked at me as competition since we all depend on our clients coming back and not finding a newer, less expensive photographer) @lcephotography who has in fact been my biggest cheerleader and my favorite part of my photography business- I couldn’t imagine life without our constant messaging. And you clients. You mommas and wives and businesswomen and self starters and stay-at-home super heroes! You’re teachers and dentists and interior designers and every impressive job you could imagine. You bring the joy and light into my work. I have recently jumped into another passion with @zyiaactive.nova and find this sweatshirt so fitting in all aspects of my life. I have found how much I CRAVE women around me to uplift, and who uplift me. So to all those strong women who make this world go round. Go ahead and spoil yourself with this fall shirt (that’s being restocked today hopefully!). And know that I love you and hope you know how much I respect you and see all that you do to make this life of mine, a positive one.
