About Lyn Flaim and Spotlight Moments Photography

Profile PHotoBW_website

Welcome! My name is Lyn Flaim, and I am a photographer and owner of Spotlight Moments Photography. I founded Spotlight Moments Photography to create, beautiful, professional, and lasting portraits at a reasonable cost to you. I specialize in family and child portraits, headshots, and performing arts events. I work from my large, modern studio, which is located at 2500 Old Middlefield way, Suite C, Mountain View, CA, behind Peninsula Youth Theatre. The site offers free parking and easy access to Highway 101.

I love photographing people and have been doing so since I was in high school. When I received my first SLR camera as a college graduation gift, I became more serious about photography. After spending years as a scientist, teacher and mother of four, I finally turned portrait photography into a career and have been working as a professional photographer for over 6 years now.  The ability capture the true essence and personality of the people I am photographing is my main strength as a portrait photographer.

My interest in shooting performing arts productions began when my children got involved with Peninsula Youth Theatre (PYT) many years ago. I have been PYT’s resident photographer as a volunteer for over 15 years. In this capacity, I help with photographing headshots, publicity photos, cast photos and dress rehearsal photos. This experience has given me the skills and expertise needed to get the best shots when shooting subjects on stage. A few of my PYT photos have been seen on the bus stops and banners that grace the sidewalks of Castro St. in Mountain View, CA. Other photos shot for PYT have been published in Gentry Bay Area Parent, and other local magazines, local newspapers and the cover of Preview magazine for the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts. Besides numerous PYT shows, I have photographed many other performing arts productions, including musicals and plays at various schools, benefit concerts, and a cappella performances.

Thank you for your interest in Spotlight Moments Photography. I hope to meet you some day in the studio.
