The Story of the Generations
Hello all, my name is Cody Robinson leader and head photographer at 3rd Gen Photography. Our generational story begins with my grandpa John, who was my inspiration and the first generation of instilling in me truly passionate photography. He got me my first digital camera at a young age and as the story goes I was hooked. My mother Kelli is on my team and my second generational influence, she has taught me so much about recognizing the value of a moment as well as building trust, commitment, and caring into every interaction. A value system from my dad Robbie has remained salient in my mind as he says that a business is built upon long-term relationships, not individual transactions. A quote I've held onto by my dad is a saying he uses in his business, "we service, to service again". Finally, the story culminates to me, a 3rd generation photographer building from the foundation of my previous generations turning hobbyist passion into a devoted profession. I started out in high school taking photos of the dances and sporting events, from there I've been published in newspapers, worked in professional photo galleries, and now have my own business to build from.

Light Tech and Assistant Photographer
Claire is a long time friend and a brilliant addition to the team bringing her skills in planning, organization, and visual aesthetics. She has an amazing way with children and families connecting instantly with compassion and humor. We bring a mobile studio so you may see Claire with either a camera in hand or supporting others with off camera lighting.
Cody has taken our family portraits numerous times. We are very picky about photos and we have worked with many photographers and companies. All of our family favorites hanging on the walls are by Cody and we decided a long time ago that he will be our first choice for photos in the future. My wife and I have said numerous times that we would have asked him to do our wedding if it was an option back then.
