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!

Show-Off Your Beautiful Changing Body

Though pregnancy can have it’s ups and downs, bringing a new life into the world is beautiful. Our bodies, no matter how pregnancy looks on us, are beautiful. If you think about it, being able to bring life into the world is a powerful thing, and our bodies can not only create new life, but nurture and help that life to grow into another human being — why not capture that!

Capture Our Children’s Journey

What is also beautiful to observe is how the process of bringing new life into the world affects our families and excites our children about the prospect of having a new brother or sister. It’s easy to forget that they are also on their own journey of watching their new sibling come into the world. No longer being the center of attention can also be hard on some children, and a Mommy and Me shoot can help remind them that they aren’t loved any less even though they will have a new baby brother or sister.

Why You’ll Love Doing This Photoshoot

We think that you will not only love the end results of your Mommy & Me Maternity Photography Session, but you will also enjoy the process of the shoot itself. Additionally, showcasing your relationship with your children is another highlight of this photography shoot. Motherhood is a relationship that is unlike any other, and something that deserves to be captured by a professional maternity photography session.

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.

Bookings Are Now Available!

Jodi Lynn has been enjoying spending time with her family and caring for Saylor Mae. However, she is excited to get back to work in the studio! With that being said, Jodi Lynn is taking bookings starting April 12. However, her availability may vary due to her absence. If you are interested in working with Jodi Lynn to capture your special moments, contact the studio!

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!
