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.

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!

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!

One of the greatest joys in life is welcoming a new baby into the world. You see everything through fresh eyes, and the depth of love is unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. If you’re pregnant and nearing your due date, it’s time to consider how you will capture this incredible time in your newborn’s life. 

Here at Photography by Jodi Lynn, we love playing a role in celebrating your baby’s entrance into this world. Jodi Lynn is a proud mother herself, so she understands exactly how important it is to have a way to treasure this moment forever, as time slips away faster than you realize. That’s why one of our favorite services to provide is the lifestyle newborn photoshoot.

What’s a Lifestyle Newborn Photoshoot? 

When most people think of newborn photoshoots, they imagine posed photos of a baby in a bassinet. At Photography by Jodi Lynn, our newborn photoshoots are different because lifestyle photoshoots are our specialty. 

Essentially, lifestyle photoshoots capture you and your family’s true essence. No one will mistake who is represented in this photoshoot; it will be so uniquely you, your loved ones will recognize it instantly. Whether you’re more likely to wear a sundress and straw hat or a full ball gown, we can capture this momentous occasion the way you feel best represents you, your partner, and your baby in your element. 

Making Your Shoot Extra Special 

No one would describe the life of a new parent as glamorous, but that doesn’t mean you don’t deserve the glam treatment! When you work with Jodi Lynn and her team, we do everything that we can to ensure you put your best face forward. That’s why we offer a $150 add-on of professional hair and makeup (if not already included in the package)! 

This month, we added a new offering: shopping help! To assure you create the best look possible, once you book your shoot, we will provide you with a list of where to go to shop for your look! The gorgeous dress featured in this photo is from one of our favorite online boutiques, Sew Trendy

Perfect for Birth Announcements 

As newborn photoshoots are a celebration of new life, it makes sense that you would want to share them with all of your friends and family. This makes them perfect for birth announcements! If you intend to use your lifestyle newborn photoshoot for your birth announcements, we can create these for you, or we can provide you with a digital copy so you can make them yourself. 

Capture Your Child’s Life Journey

These moments are the first steps down a long journey for your child. While they won’t be able to remember them, your child will love the opportunity to look back on their development to see how they’ve grown. As your youngster grows into an adult, they’ll cherish the chance to look back at these photos to see just how far they’ve come.

If you’re pregnant and ready to schedule your newborn photoshoot, we would love to work with you to create photographs you adore for years to come. Contact us for family photography in Phoenix!
