Contest Judge: Lynn Fern

Lynn Fern is a Cornwall, NY based professional photographer. She started “Lynn Fern Photography” in 2018 after years of photographing her furniture restoration projects for her blog, “On Fern Avenue.” Lynn originally hails from a small West Texas town called Sterling City (think “Friday Night Lights”). She cared for and rode horses in her youth, competing in many rodeos as a barrel racer. After working as a horse trainer, she decided to give up the country life and headed to NYC. She worked in Compliance & Operations in the finance world, but gave up the city life after getting married and having two daughters. Lynn then started down the  path of DIY furniture restoration, appearing on HGTV’s “Flea Market Flip,” which she won. Lynn is now a full-time photographer specializing in sports, senior portraits and family sittings.
