Spring is Here!

March 2, 2021

Spring as Sweet as Tea 

Spring has definitely hit here in Arizona. With our early 80 degree weather and practically no winter (except for that weird day of random snow?!), Arizona is back to warming up again. This is such a great time though because let’s be real, that 80 degree sweet spot feels amazing! It’s when it starts to get above that 95 mark when we really start to dread the heat we know is coming. I know I personally dream of more pool days again. When it comes to family portraits, this is the literal perfect time to get the kids together and snap a family moment in time! 

 

 

Gorgeous Arizona Landscapes

Everyone is taking their activities to the outdoors right now and we are on the exact same wave. Spring family photos are some of our favorite types of portrait sessions! Pastels, florals, and fresh air. There are so many gorgeous views around Phoenix that we love to visit for Spring family photos. First, the Lost Dutchman State Park is an all-time favorite! Mornings here are filled with native plant blooms, birds, little animal friends, and gorgeous geologic structures like the Superstition Mountains. We love this location because not only are there perfect backdrops but there is so much to learn and interact with! There is never a dull moment at Lost Dutchman State Park! After your session, take the family to Goldfield Ghost Town for lunch! 

 

 

Fun and Exciting Arizona Family Portraits 

Right next to the botanical gardens is another favorite location, Papago Park. Papago Park is home to hole in the rock as well as various bodies of water and perfect desert mountain landscape backdrops. A short climb up to hole in the rock will reveal a great view of Phoenix, Scottsdale, and Tempe! Similarly, this awesome family’s session was in North Scottsdale, up in the beautiful boulders. Jodi Lynn has been photographing this glowing mama since before she was even pregnant with her littles! She loves that she has gotten to see them grow and work with this family for so long now. That is what this business is all about, getting to know these sweet families and watch their tribe grow.

Let’s capture this special milestone and make sure it’s stopped in time. We’ve got plenty of perfect options for your shoot from the Soft and Sweet to the Beloved Bella, whether you want hair and makeup done, a mommy and me experience, a shoot with the entire family, and indoor or outdoor photography!

 

Baby Milk Bath Sessions

We love the strawberry bath for this ‘6 months’ photoshoot. No can resist exclaiming a big “Aw!” when they see your cutie in these strawberry baths! It’s an incredibly fun and immersive style for your baby whether they want to splash around or inspect a strawberry, maybe even pick it up and test their tossing skills! Baby will be totally mesmerized by this colorful, warm bath and it makes for the absolute sweetest pictures. Maybe they’ll try to take a big chomp out of one – those shots are so sweet! Our little ones definitely keep us laughing. These will last you a lifetime and are so special for capturing your baby’s rapid growth. We all know they grow up way too fast!

Include the family! We love having siblings come along, grandparents, and parents. This can be a special occasion for the whole family and everyone can be a part of the memory making. When it comes to packages, you’ll have to keep in mind how many people you want to bring. The Soft and Sweet is perfect for smaller families of up to three people and all other packages are perfect for up to 5 people. Have a large family? Don’t worry, we can add them in!

When picking out what to wear, we love to suggest neutrals, soft pinks and ivories, light greys, even light baby blues! We suggest taking into consideration where these pictures will go – if they’ll be in the nursery, try to coordinate with those colors or your family room, etc. Also think about what kind of “vibe” you want your shoot to have. Take a look at our galleries for inspiration! If you need any help, we’ve got a client closet totally ready to go for both you and baby.

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.

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!

Melting Hearts Already

Our hearts melted upon seeing Baby P for the first time. Her soft as satin skin, those little cheeks, the way her mouth sucks an imaginary pacifier while she sleeps and oh my that smell! Newborn babies have the most heavenly smell. I wish we could bottle it up and keep it forever. We were so excited to meet Baby P after her mother’s maternity session and she proves that she was worth the wait! 

A Family full of Love

Baby P has been blessed with some truly amazing parents. You can feel their excitement and warmth from the moment they walk in. The way both mom and dad gaze at her and then at each other is giving the Photography by Jodi Lynn team some serious baby fever! We love being able to capture your family’s special moments of love and life. Our private studio is perfect for newborn sessions, but we also do in home sessions like this newborn baby girl. 

 

Precious Baby Girl

The pairing of the pink tones with Baby P’s cherub skin is so delicate and her perfect pouty little lips and baby toes are just begging to be kissed. We are confident this little lady will be getting away with all sorts of mischief with these killer good looks. Her older sister clearly adores her and is excited to have a sister to love. Newborn posing can be difficult but Jodi Lynn is so gentle and uses such care to get the perfect newborn poses

A Newborn Photography Expert

Remember when you first brought your baby home and you were afraid to even step out of the house without an arsenal of baby gear? Jodi Lynn is an expert with newborns. She knows just how to make them comfortable, and pose them every so delicately to not disturb their peaceful sleep. This is what makes her one of the best newborn photographers in the East Valley.
