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!

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!

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

Ask any new mom, their number one fear is something happening to their baby. 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. Whether you live in Scottsdale or Gilbert, Queen Creek or Ahwatukee, Photography by Jodi Lynn is the right choice for your baby.

Welcome to Le Boudoir Studio’s blog! We are excited to announce that Jodi Lynn is expecting her baby soon — March 8th, to be exact! She and her husband are busy getting ready to welcome their baby girl, and their daughter is bouncing with excitement to have a little sister.

During the last several months, Jodi Lynn has been busy with all the preparations that must be done along the way when you’re expecting. She has been reacquainted with all of the world-changing effects of bringing a new life into the world. From preparing the baby room to satisfying her cravings — apple fritters and anything pickled — there is a lot to take in and do before she and her family get to meet their little one.

Additionally, she and her husband have decided to use the expertise of a midwife for a VBAC delivery — vaginal birth after cesarean. 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.

With a March 8th due date quickly approaching, the energy around our Scottsdale studio is one full of excitement and support for Jodi Lynn and her family in welcoming the newest member to their family. With this in mind, there is some business around the studio to be aware of:

Welcome back to the Photography By Jodi Lynn blog! Today, we will explore the importance of tween to teen photo sessions, and why these years are so important to capture in photographs.  There are many different changes that occur between the tween years (preadolescents aged 9-14) and the teen years. From changes in opinions, behaviors, attitudes, friends, and interests to the physical transformations that occur with the onset of puberty, these years are some of the most formative years in boys’ and girls’ lives. Ask just about anyone of adult age, and most people will say that these years were some of the toughest years of their lives. However, this is also a time where we start developing our individuality, building lasting relationships, and really begin to come into our own.

As a long-time portrait photographer in Arizona, we do many photography sessions that capture children as either young kids or seniors in high school, but we tend to miss those middle years, which are so important. Below are some of the reasons why it is important to capture the teen to tween years in photographs. And if you are ready to book a photo session for your tween to teen, arrange a session with Photography by Jodi Lynn today.

Captures An Important Milestone

With all of the changes that occur from the tween to teen years, this really is the last chance parents have to capture their kids’ childhood before they enter their teenage years. These sessions capture those unique facial expressions and poses that highlight that fine line between being a kid and growing into a teenager. Parents can cherish these photographs for a lifetime and have them as a way to remember their baby boy or baby girl during the tougher times ahead during their teenage years.

Tween to Teen Sessions Are Empowering for Boys and Girls

This period is also a tough age for boys and girls to feel good about themselves. It is hard to undergo the physical, mental, and emotional changes during this time. As these changes happen, they can affect a tween-teen’s self-esteem. Between weight gains, acne, and other physical changes, puberty can be incredibly harsh. Tack on the changes to their hormones and emotions, which can affect how they treat each other, and this time can become very difficult for many.

Tween to teen photo sessions provide a chance to focus solely on your child, highlighting their inner and outer beauty, their strengths, and bringing out their personalities on camera so that they can enjoy themselves during their session. By showcasing their natural beauty and providing them a space to feel comfortable, they can feel confident in their own skin, which boosts their self-esteem during and after their session. This is especially important for girls who are constantly trying to live up to society’s expectations to look and act a certain way. It’s all about the experience, giving them a chance to be themselves while feeling amazing, which can be incredibly empowering for boys and girls during these years.

A Way to Express Beauty and Individuality

A tween to teen photoshoot allows a portrait photographer to capture your child’s beauty and blossoming individuality. It’s amazing to see how kiddos can look very child-like in one photo and then transform their facial expressions and poses to give you a glimpse of their adolescent, even young adult selves in another photo. Additionally, we offer professional hair and makeup services for girls to really glam them up and make them feel extra special, which only accentuates their natural beauty, allowing them to feel even more glamorous    

Can Show Off Photos on Social Media

Tweens and teens are all about taking selfies and sharing updates with their friends on social media platforms. After a session, kids love sharing their professional photos on Instagram and Facebook, which gives them an extra boost of confidence as they get compliments back from their friends and family members.  

Book a Tween to Teen Session

We love taking photographs of children during all stages of their life, but highly recommend that parents take advantage of this important, transformative moment in their child’s life by capturing it on film. Not only are the photographs stunning, they also give kids a boost of confidence, provide them with a way to express their beauty and individuality, and gives them something they can be proud to share with others on social media. Call Photography By Jodi Lynn to book a memorable tween to teen photo session with our portrait photographer in Phoenix, Scottsdale, and surrounding areas in Arizona today!
