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.

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!
