It’s May once again and it is exciting to enjoy warmer temperatures here in Phoenix while getting ready for summer fun. Spring is a time of renewal, and an exciting time of growth and expectancy of new things to come. With all this in mind, we are excited to announce our current special!

The Simply Darling Package

We are now offering our Simply Darling Package — a new way to celebrate every stage of pregnancy. This pregnancy photography package includes 10 quick photo sessions that are scheduled throughout the course of your pregnancy. We are excited to give expecting parents a way to capture this special time in their lives. And, we are excited to find another way to get to know our clients and support you as you are expecting.

The Beauty of Pregnancy: Why Celebrate Each Stage?

After recently giving birth to her second daughter, Jody Lynn is well aware of the realities and joys of creating new life and bringing a new member into your family: it is exciting to think about meeting your little angel, who they will be, and which parent they will look most like.

However, pregnancy can be hard, uncomfortable, overwhelming, and feel like a less-than-beautiful experience. By offering the Simply Darling Package, we hope that you are able to better enjoy each stage of pregnancy and to capture that beautiful glow that, even though you might not feel beautiful, you will be radiating during each stage of pregnancy. Here are three reasons why we think it’s important to celebrate your journey and invest in pregnancy photography.

To Embrace Your Changing Body

Seeing your body change or if you are experiencing some difficult health complications as a result of pregnancy, it can be easy to feel anxious or overwhelmed. It can also be frustrating if you feel like pregnancy looks “better” on other people. However, it is important to remember that this is your journey as you create new life and evolve into a mother. By embracing your body, and allowing the photographer to capture this moment, you can celebrate the process of shedding your old life and starting a new adventure.   

To Nurture Positive Thoughts Toward Pregnancy

No matter if you have been trying for a long time or you’re nurturing an “oops baby,” it’s easy to get caught up in worrying about all the things that could go wrong, as well as the discomforts of pregnancy. Reminding yourself of the beauty of the process and of the end goal — holding your baby in your arms for the first time — can help you better enjoy each stage of pregnancy and create positive thoughts to dwell on.  

To Reflect On the Experience

No matter what you’re doing in life, it is incredibly healthy to slow down and take a moment to reflect. However, it is even more crucial during such a profound time as pregnancy. As you reflect, you can journal out frustrations and worries as well as take a moment to check in with yourself and see how you’re feeling, not only to better understand and enjoy your journey of creating new life, but also to invest in the best self-care. Having a pregnancy photographer capture each stage of your pregnancy is one of the ultimate ways to reflect on the experience both now and years down the road.

If you are starting your journey toward motherhood, we are excited to help you celebrate bring new life into the world. Learn more about our Phoenix area photographer and book your Simply Darling Photo Package by visiting our website!

Happy spring! We at Photography By Jodi Lynn are excited that spring has finally sprung and we will soon be enjoying warmer temperatures, pool parties, and fun in the sun this spring and summer in Phoenix.

However, we are the most excited that Jodi Lynn had her baby!

Welcome, Saylor Mae!

Jodi Lynn, her husband, and daughter welcomed Saylor Mae, a healthy, beautiful, baby girl on March 14, 2019 at 3:18 P.M., after 17 hours in labor — worth every minute, but eek! Saylor Mae was born 8 pounds and 20 ¾ inches, with a full head of soft, luscious baby hair and the sweetest baby face.

An Unforgettable Delivery Experience

Jodi Lynn was able to stick to her birth plan — a VBAC delivery, vaginal birth after cesarean. The experience of giving birth to her baby girl naturally was everything that she hoped it would be and was thankful to have a midwife and doula by her side every step of the way.

The midwives of Willow Birth Center Arizona helped Jodi Lynn and her family bring Saylor Mae into the world and Jodi Lynn could not have asked for a better experience. Offering comprehensive, individualized care, the midwives of Willow Birth Center helped Jodi Lynn find the right birth plan for her and her daughter and provided the care and support during the delivery process. Their passion for providing the best care and experience was evident throughout the entire preparation and delivery process.

Doula By Design also played a major role in providing Jodi Lynn and her family the care and support they needed as Saylor Mae was born. The passion of Jodi Lynn’s doula for supporting women during one of their most memorable experiences of their life was very evident, and the birth experience Jodi Lynn and her family hoped for.

Bringing Saylor Mae into the world wouldn’t have been the same without the help of our midwife and doula — thank you!

Precious Moments Captured Perfectly

Our experience also wouldn’t have been the same without Shannon of Shannon Burke Photography. If you are familiar with Shannon’s work, you know how well she captures the precious moments after the birth of your little one. The memories that Shannon’s attention to detail and her ability to perfectly capture a moment gave Jodi Lynn and her family priceless photographs that they will treasure for the rest of their lives.

Jodi Lynn is excited to experience giving birth to her daughter naturally, and to have the expertise of a midwife by her side during the birthing process: a midwife’s professional expertise can be a true asset before, during, and after the birth.

Often when we think of headshots, many people think of stiff, static pictures of subjects with out-of-date hairstyles and impersonal professional clothing, but headshots can be so much more. Today on the Photography By Jodi Lynn blog, we are going to show you just how fun taking lifestyle headshots with a portrait photographer can be and how they can actually show your best self and personality. It’s time to say goodbye to boring glamour shots!   

Who Should Get Headshots?

Anyone can get headshots! This style of photography is all about capturing you: your personality and style. However, we encourage real estate professionals, boutique owners, bloggers, and other professionals in Phoenix to invest in quality lifestyle headshots. Why? Not only will they demonstrate your professionalism, but they will show the personality you have to offer them if they work with you.     

3 Tips For Taking Photos You’ll Love

It’s easy to feel intimidated or self-conscious when thinking about taking pictures, but when you work with us, we create a comfortable environment that will help you shine. Headshots are all about capturing you. Below are some tips for feeling comfortable in your own skin and your very best — your most beautiful self.

Choose Your Power Outfit

In business, a blue suit has traditionally been called “the power suit.” In the same way, each of us have colors, clothing styles, and materials that make us feel the most like ourselves. Like in the photos here, our client chose two of her favorite outfits that make her feel beautiful. When choosing the ensemble for your pictures, remember it’s not about having the latest styles, it’s about showing your individuality. Also, don’t forget about your favorite accessories!

Get Creative With Poses

One of the things we love about what we do is capturing our client’s personality through multiple poses and angles. Gone are the days of static poses. When doing a photo shoot, we encourage our clients to sit, stand, lay down, twirl, and do what feels natural to them. We will help you find a pose that looks good and feels natural. If looking at the camera doesn’t feel comfortable, don’t worry! There are a lot of great ways to capture you, without looking at the lens.   


Choose Your Favorite Props

In her book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, Marie Kondo says that being surrounded by our favorite things will make us feel happy. In the same way, incorporating our favorite things into headshots can be a great way to bring out our personality. What items do you love and which of them show off your passions? Do you have a favorite mug or notebook like our client? Are you the happiest when in a room full of books? When choosing your props, get creative!

Jodi Lynn and Traci of Photography By Jodi Lynn are passionate about capturing our client’s inner and outer beauty through lifestyle headshots that you will not only love for years to come, but will help drive the success of your business in Phoenix.
