Fall in Love

Fall in Arizona is a beautiful time! We’re leaving heat waves behind, pumpkin patches are popping up all over our gorgeous state, and it’s the best time for outdoor events. Getting outside and breathing in the fresh air is so good for ourselves and it makes for some of the cutest, most fun family pictures too! There’s nothing quite like getting out in nature with your loved ones, which is why we simply HAD to visit Mortimer Farms to show you how beautiful family photos can be! 

Break the mold of Traditional Family Photos 

Photography by Jodi Lynn blends candid and traditional posed photography together. Being a family photographer since 2009, Jodi knows a variety makes for the best family portraits because it truly shows your family essence by telling a story through photos. Your family story is a unique one that only you all can tell. The culture, traditions, new traditions, blending of husband and wife backgrounds, values, all of these things are worth capturing! Bring this energy into your home with natural pictures of your loving family.

Style as Authentic as You Are

When it comes to getting ready for your family’s photoshoot, knowing how to dress in a way that expresses your family! We recommend that you don’t dress in matching outfits but rather stick to a color palette or theme. Imagine what you want these photos to look and feel like, pin some inspiration on pinterest, and curate outfits based on the feel you want for your shoot. Instead of everyday wear, opt for a styled & upgraded feel to what an everyday look might be. Even better, coordinate your outfit colors with the colors inside your home! Think about where these pictures will be going and what you want to feel when you see them. You are going to love how your family session turns out!

Let the Kids Play!

After your session, we can get some fun photos of your children running around and playing. Letting your kids be kids! Check out these giggles and messy little outfits. Life is not picture perfect, but your moments with your children are always perfect.These will be the memories you will always cherish, the sights and sounds of your children laughing and playing. 

Let’s Visit Arizona!

You may be thinking, where will the shoot even take place? Don’t worry, we’ve got plenty of ideas. Mortimer Farms in Dewey, AZ has some of the most picture-perfect attractions from their Pumpkin Fest & Corn Maze to their country store, harvest picking and more! Additionally, we live in a stunning, mountainous state with places like Papago Park, Old Town Scottsdale, Sedona & Prescott, just to name a few. 

Grab your little ones, grab your teens, grab grandparents, and let’s freeze these sweet, candid moments in time. Jodi Lynn will work with your group on posing, capturing parents and kids, so that we make the most of our time together.

Arizona Newborn Photography

In last month’s blog we chatted all about maternity & the magic of bringing new life into the world. Now, the beauty of new life, your newborn baby, is here and we know you’re feeling all the feels! You’ll want to capture these precious moments with your little one as soon as possible so you can carry the memories of them being this small with you forever.

Scheduling is Key!

With Photography by Jodi Lynn, newborn shoots are scheduled 3-10 for days after your baby is born.This way we can freeze these sweet & fragile days in time! To reflect this time in your family’s life, we invite the whole family to come along so we may capture all of your love for each other. This is definitely a family affair!

We are Here for You!

It’s best to schedule your shoot during your pregnancy, a few months before baby is due. We book your appointment when you are 30 weeks pregnant. Of course, some babies come earlier or later than scheduled in which case we are totally flexible for you, mama! What we’ll do is go ahead and schedule two possible dates for your shoot so we’re prepared. 


When you’re planning your newborn shoot, pick out clothing & accessories that reflect who you are and what kind of feeling you want your pictures to have. We know you want this to look special so move away from your everyday wear and consider softer colors such as whites, ivorys, soft grey, blush, and light blue. If choosing pieces and getting all done up by yourself stresses you out (and as someone who just gave birth or may even be a new mom that’s totally understandable!), let us pamper you! We’ve got makeup and hair experts ready to help you get glam. We also have a full client closet for both you and baby to look absolutely stunning and adorable. For you we’ve gathered an array of gorgeous, flowy dresses. For baby, we’ve got all sorts of bows, hats, and swaddling blankets. We always suggest bringing a spare change of clothes in case there’s any accidents – you never know!

In Home Newborn Sessions

Jodi can also make your shoot happen in the comfort of your own home, highlighting your sweet one’s nursery. An in-home session might be for you if you want to tell the story of bringing your little one home, making for nostalgic images to last a lifetime. This is such a special experience full of raw emotion and we want to help you savor this moment in time.

We are so excited to see you, your family, and your newest little bundle of joy!

Gorgeous Mama of Two

We love maternity photo sessions. There is just something magical about bringing new life into the world. We are all filled with a sense of hope and excitement.

Photographing The Future

Ask any mother and she will tell you that her children are both the light of her life and her daily struggle. Raising the future leaders and pioneers of this world is tough! We find that raising daughters can be particularly challenging. Society seems to have so many requirements for women. Women must be a million things in one small package. It can be a daunting task to raise confident, strong and independent women in a society that seeks to divide and tell women “you aren’t enough.” This is precisely why we want to highlight some bright, beautiful, and powerful young ladies who are being raised by strong women. 

Building Confidence to Last

These lovely ladies are so fortunate to have positive and encouraging role models in their life. The lessons that the women in their lives will pass on to them will help build their confidence and inner strength for years to come. Through overcoming adversity and standing up for oneself and others, women are able to build strong foundations for themselves that stand the test of time.  We are coming up on the 100th anniversary of women successfully fighting for the right to vote. This never would have been possible if women did not stand together and fight for their rights. Imagine if our great grandmothers and their mothers could see all that we have accomplished together. 

Encouraging Future Leaders

As women, we should be a symbol of strength and encouragement for one another. Having a group of strong women was vital when it came to marriage, birthing and raising children, and advancing oneself whether academically, or professionally. Every successful woman in the world has had a coalition of mothers, sisters, and grandmothers to have her back. Whether you are a mother, sister, aunt, stepmother, grandmother, or a family friend in a young girls life; you have an obligation to support and encourage strength in our future leaders.

 

Put the Focus on Them! 

We cannot forget the importance of the fathers like in this “Another meaningful way to celebrate dad” blog in our daughters lives! We want to celebrate your daughter with the people or interests that matter most to her. Having photos to look back on and remember is a great way to immortalize moments in time. Photography by Jodi Lynn offers full photo packages as well as headshot packages for your future senator, entrepreneur, film star, or doctor!

Memory Lane

June 29, 2020

Classic Summer Time

Summer is officially here! It is time for swimsuits, sun, popsicles and fireworks. America’s Birthday is here and we are excited to celebrate. This season always makes us picture retro swimsuits and classic cars. Maybe it is the fond memories of watching The Sandlot as a kid, but summer reminds us of all things vintage and pinups!

A Variety of Ideas

Coming in for a Pin Up session with Photography by Jodi Lynn is a great way to mix up your photos. This theme is great for all aspects of your life. Jodi Lynn was featured on a variety of wedding websites for her Bonnie and Clyde engagement shoot. You could dress up your minis and do a cute “Mama and Me” pin up session. Also, what a creative and memorable way to celebrate your birthday (or child’s birthday)  or girl gang! 

 

Headshots as Unique as You

Another great option for your vintage photo session is to use it for unique headshots for your business. Whether you are a beauty blogger, fashionista, real estate agent or a successful YouTuber, this would set your brand apart. We love when you bring your creative ideas into the studio. Jodi Lynn loves a challenge and isn’t afraid to try something new!

 

Summer Nights!

These beautiful ladies sure do make us wish we were sitting on a beach sipping a cold coca cola and taking a ride in a convertible. One aspect that makes pin up photography so much fun is the ability to incorporate different props and vintage styles! If you need fun retro outfit ideas, there are so many vintage boards on Pinterest and Unique Vintage is a great shop! Pin Up Photography is a specialized area that we do not offer regularly, so be sure to book yours while the weather is hot!
