Phoenix Lifestyle Newborn Photographer

The day you have your first child changes your life for the better. It is a person’s biggest pride and joy to become a parent, and you learn so much in the process. Most learn that parenthood is having the wildest hopes and dreams for not only yourself, but for the precious little ones in your care. It is spending all your energy loving the beautiful soul you get to call yours.

Natural Light Newborn Photography

Our photographer Traci Dianne, was blessed to spend a day with this wonderful family and their sweet new girl. Mama reminded us so much of the new joys that come with the birth of a new baby, including being overwhelmed with love. As you can see in the photos, she couldn’t keep her eyes off this little angel. We took most of the photos in the nursery using natural lighting, and it turned out beautifully. We know that this little one is going to be blessed in a loving home with amazing parents that will nurture and care for her indefinitely!

Newborn Photo Shoot at Home

At Photography by Jodi Lynn & Co. We know just how hard it can be to leave the house for 3 or 4 hours with a newborn, so our in-home newborn sessions are a great alternative to the traditional newborn portraits taken at our Arizona studio. Additionally, a lifestyle newborn session has the convenience of having all of a client’s belongings at our disposal. So it’s not a problem if, halfway through the session, mom thinks of another baby outfit he wants to include or dad wishes to change into a different shirt. Another reason to consider an in-home newborn photo shoot is if you missed out on that “perfect” newborn portrait window, when baby is between 2-10 days old. Having a slightly older newborn for this session just means you’ll have some super-cute, wide-eyed shots or darling facial expressions.

What to Wear to Your Senior Portraits

At Photography by Jodi Lynn & Co, we know choosing what you wear to your Senior Session is kind of a big deal. After all you are going to be looking at these photos for years to come. And even if you don’t care about fashion, we know you’ll want to look great at your Arizona senior portraits! These portraits are all about YOU. They are supposed to highlight your personality, interests, and style at this point in your life. So, here are some tips and tricks that can help you look your best at your senior photo shoot.

Outfit Tips for Your Senior Photo Shoot

Tip 1:

 Incorporating your own sense of fashion is important, but wearing something that you aren’t going to regret is important as well. Wearing neutral colors like beige, ivory, grey, black, or blue, always photograph well and allow the attention to go back to where it is supposed to be – on you! If you want to add more color to compliment the background you can always add fun accessories like colorful shoes, or a bold necklace.

Tip #2:

These are once in a lifetime images. You’re not going to have another senior portrait session. For all our senior sessions, you can have up to 3 outfit changes. So, our suggestion is to bring one outfit that is more formal. You don’t have to wear a suit and tie or ball gown but just think of your “Sunday’s best” and wear a pretty dress or nice pair of slacks. A formal outfit is perfect for mixing it up from your everyday wear and adds a little extra glam to your senior photography session that mom and dad will love!

Tip #3:

Be comfortable! This is probably the most important tip we have for you. Don’t go shopping and pick something you’re not sure about. If you look in the mirror, and you don’t think it works for you, don’t bring it. These photos are about capturing you. You should feel relaxed and comfortable in what you chose to wear. Especially since you’ll be sitting on the ground, possibly climbing on things, jumping, and more during your senior shoot!

In the end, your Senior photo shoot should represent your entire personality, not just one side of you. We want you to look, & feel like a bajillion bucks! If visuals help, here is a link to our Pinterest board with lots of great ideas! Just remember always to be true to yourself.

Traditional Business Headshots Vs Fun Business Shots

Often, when business professionals come to us for their business portraits, they have a vision in mind of what headshots used to be, rigid, lackluster and impersonal. And while some organizations and the roles that some people play in their professional lives dictate a conservative style of portrait, that’s not always the case. At Photography by Jodi Lynn we specialize in fun business headshots for every type of professional. From life coaches to lawyers our natural light studio is a great backdrop for creating a headshot portrait that is unique to your personality and your business.

Unique Headshots for Women

This headshot session was truly one of kind, our beautiful client JoJo Caramello describes herself as a pixie with spunk! And after working with her we would have to agree. Her energy and smile are infectious which makes it easy to see why she successfully runs her own life organization company, Higher Me! Professional Organization, that specializes in de-cluttering your life of emotional, mental, and physical baggage. In a time like today we all carry some type of baggage; whether we care to admit it or not, and JoJo’s services while uncommon are necessary to help the modern human live a happy and stress-free life.
