With Father’s Day in the recent past, it’s easy to reflect on the difficulty of finding a gift for Dad. Whether you can’t afford to buy what dad really wants or he is the man that has everything, holidays such as Father’s Day, birthdays, and other special occasions can become stressful when it comes time to find Dad the perfect gift. Today, we at Photography by Jodi Lynn are here to help!

3 Ways to Give Dad Gifts He Will Love

Even though Dad can extremely hard to buy for, it doesn’t mean it’s impossible to find something that he will love. Sometimes, it’s all about thinking about gift-giving in a different way. 

Meaningful

Instead of thinking about material things that Dad might want, it’s time to consider what would be the most meaningful gift. Though Dad will always appreciate gold plated cufflinks and other traditional gifts, a painting completed by you, a calendar with pictures of the grandkids, and other personalized gifts are priceless and are sure to bring a genuine smile to his face.

Celebrate a Favorite Memory

Do you and your Dad have a favorite memory that you love to reminisce about or a story that you love to tell? Consider how you can immortalize that memory. Framing a picture from the special moment, putting a special item on a plaque, or finding a special piece of memorabilia to commemorate that special memory can be the perfect way to make Dad feel celebrated on his special day. 

Something They Can’t Buy

Even for Dads that seem to have it all, there is nearly always something that they can’t buy or don’t know they want. For example, does your dad love a specific type of beer but can’t buy it in his town? Order or pick some up for him. Is your father a little challenged when it comes to choosing his own clothes or simply hates shopping? Buy him clothes that he needs.

An Experience

Another way to celebrate Dad is to give him the gift of an experience. Take him to a special museum exhibit, enjoy a brewery tour, attend a concert, or go on a multi-day backpacking trip together. Not only will you get to spend time with your dad but you are giving him memories that he will cherish long after the event is over. Be sure to take pictures!

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 a twist to 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 when added to a regular newborn or maternity package or equal or greater value. 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!

The beauty of the “Milk-Bath” Session is in the details. The simplicity of the setup yields gorgeous, timeless photos with a fun and refreshing feel.  We love Maternity Milk baths, epically when accented by flowers and greenery, but with infant or baby milk-baths, it can be a fun twist to toss In a few strawberries, raspberries, or any other handheld fruit that matches the color scheme of your house or Nursery. There is no shortage of ways to add a personal touch to your milk-bath session!

HOW IT WORKS

After booking either over the phone, or through our secure online booking center, we will choose a date that works best for you and begin gathering supplies. Each session begins with a few photos in various outfits, on different backgrounds and with a few props in order to get your sweet baby used to being in front of the camera. Our talented photographers work with your baby to get genuine giggles through funny faces and silly noises. After a fun warm-up, we will fill one of our custom Milk-Bath Bowls and sprinkle in the hand-held fruit of your choice, the pictures we get from these sessions are ones that you will love forever, we know that we do! Keep the memory in a custom album or canvas print. We can’t wait for you to experience such an amazing time in your life through a creative photo session.

Instead of the traditional backdrop, mommas-to-be and photographers are changing the theme of maternity photography. Maternity sessions are extremely powerful because it’s about the mother, the baby, and showing how powerful a woman’s body truly is.  At our studio we are dedicated to showing each and every woman that comes in how powerful, beautiful, and strong she truly is! Traci and Jodi Lynn are not only photographers but mothers and women who first hand understand that to love yourself, we need a little confidence boost every once and a while, especially while pregnant!

MILK BATH MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHY

Milk bath sessions are so dreamy and have so much room for personalization! From the milky transparency in the tub, flowers, and outfits, these sessions are simply breathtaking. This gorgeous mama-to-be wanted to document her pregnancy in a more unique way and stumbled across milk-bath sessions and so we will now be offering our milk bath sessions in Gilbert, Arizona instead of at our studio in Scottsdale!  

This dreamy session has now been added to our list of favorite ways to capture pregnancy! After filling the tub with 2 gallons of whole milk, and some of the most beautiful flowers from Trader Joes we were filled with so much joy. Photography is such an art and being able to work with amazing women to create portraits that are unlike others, makes our hearts explode! Just look at this momma!

At Photography by Jodi Lynn, we LOVE being able to work with so many families.
Especially when they are embarking on their first adventure into parenthood. Our Scottsdale studio has
natural indoor lighting and is a perfect setting for your first-time portraits with your new bundle of joy.

Sylvia is one of our photographers here at our studio and we have been with her every step of
her pregnancy! Being able to capture her with her sweet baby girl has been so special to all
us at the studio. We have worked with Sylvia for quite some time, so watching her grow and
transition into being a mother has melted all our hearts.

“Becoming a mother is the greatest joy I have ever known, I have never loved someone so
much” -Sylvia

TIMELESS NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY

Between the natural light, peach and cream colors in contrast to our gray wood flooring, we
were so excited to show off this beautiful session. Baby S wore a cream-colored headband
from Baby Grace Hats. We love being able to color coordinate and really make the
colors pop with our backdrop options. We then transitioned Baby S into a deep blue wrap and
matching headband from The Ruffled Bloom to change the look to something out of a woodland
fairy tale.

Sessions like these last a lifetime! Not only are these portraits something you can hang on the
walls in your home, but they are pictures that can be cherished forever in your family.
