Phoenix Newborn PhotographerOBSESSED. That’s the word that comes up when I look at these images…as a Phoenix newborn photographer I offer my clients both newborn studio and lifestyle sessions, and I love them both for different reasons; however if I was going to book one for myself and hang prints all over the walls, this is the type of session I’d want.

I love how wonderfully intimate and simple home sessions are. Since everyone has different preferences I offer both (and love that either way I sneak in some newborn huffing and snuggling 😉

Phoenix Newborn PhotographerSomething about this one below gets me…just how tiny and dependent he is on his mama.

Phoenix Newborn PhotographerJackson’s beautiful, big sis.

I’m going to level with you…Jackson was actually not all that interested in having pictures taken. In fact, all he wanted to do was EAT. I’m not even kidding, haha. So, we rolled with it, and ended up with about half a gallery of absolutely GORGEOUS tender breastfeeding/family images. I just love them.

Phoenix Newborn PhotographerPhoenix Newborn PhotographerThese detail shots are so timeless and sweet…when I look at my own babies newborn photos it’s these images that choke me up.

I mean, just look at that BELLY!!!

Phoenix Newborn PhotographerHands down my favorite from their session (runner-up is the belly button photograph!)

I processed more in black and white than I normally do for a gallery however this session begged for it…

Arizona Newborn PhotographerHere’s the thing. My industry is flooded. There are photographers everywhere, new ones launching websites and buying props every day. I’ve been an Arizona newborn photographer who has been in business since its 2008 and have seen the industry change so much in that time–one of the trends that emerged in recent years that I absolutely LOVE is the community over competition movement. In a culture that often focuses on scarcity while surrounded by abundance, I love the trend’s commitment to recognizing there is room for all of us to grow and succeed.

Seeing fellow photographers as part of a community I get to serve and challenge as opposed to simply my competition brings energy to my work as opposed to stress. I a focused on providing my clients with an AMAZING service from the first email through the canvas being hung on the wall, and love that I see other local photographer’s working to do the same. I hope to challenge, support and inspire others…and to encourage above all else the importance of newborn safety.

This mini session took place a few weeks ago, and is a local photographer’s newest babe. She was curious about my lighting set up so we played with it for about 30min and snapped some adorable pictures of her babes.

This is Maverick. I’m obsessed with him and his name.

Arizona Newborn PhotographerCould they be any sweeter?!!

Scottsdale Childrens PhotographerOh these girls, THESE GIRLS.

I just adore the two of them. I say it all the time (sorry!!!) but my favorite thing about being a Scottsdale childrens photographer is always getting to see return clients! This is the third time these babes have been in front of my camera and each time gets better! You can see their last session here.

Scottsdale Childrens PhotographerThis girl…such a sweet beauty. Anya has a world of curiosity hosted in her eyes.

Scottsdale Childrens PhotographerOh, and this one, THIS ONE!! Emma is pure joy and delight! I could snuggle her up all day.

Scottsdale Childrens PhotographerSeeing them dance and twirl in their traditional dresses was such a treat for me…I’m so grateful for how much beauty and diversity this world offers us.

Phoenix Family PhotographerI’m not going to lie. As a Phoenix family photographer I wouldn’t be alllllllll that disappointed if my client’s showed up dressed in vintage dresses. Or invited me into their uniquely styled homes. Or played their instruments (squeaky music and all!! 😉 in front of me. I mean. I wouldn’t be disappointed…I’d love it.

A few weeks back I shared here about my experience attending the Wildflower Photo workshop in Tennessee with Joy Prouty, so on the third day when her kids came home and pulled out their dresses and violins and joined us in the living room, I felt my heart swell in such a sweet and mellow way, and thoroughly enjoyed capturing her kids in their most natural environment.

Home sessions are always something special…home is where kids feel the safest.

Phoenix Family PhotographerThese two sisters are going to spend their lifetime sharing secrets and kisses.

Phoenix Family PhotographerThe vibrancy in this one feels so alive…probably my favorite from this little session in their living room.

Phoenix Family PhotographerThe property was so gorgeous at sunrise…this was taken moments after Joy took us all out for individual photos. The experience at the workshop was so wholly transformative and emotional for me. I came home and launched a new project over at melbosna.com, which I will be sharing more about in the upcoming weeks.

Phoenix Family PhotographerPhoenix Family Photographer Children are so precious and childhood is such a short season that needs to be captured before it passes.

I love this one too. Her little profile.

Phoenix Family PhotographerEnding our time with a little twirling…can’t blame them.

  • Erica - These are so magical! I’ve loved following your images and experiences with Joy and her workshop. What an amazing opportunity for not only your business but also your soul <3ReplyCancel

Scottsdale Childrens PhotographerI’ve been shooting in the desert a TON lately and as a Scottsdale childrens photographer, I am not complaining…the light and weather have been an absolute dream. That coupled with seeing some of my favorite clients (did I saw that out loud?) I have seriously been in heaven. You might ask what makes a client fall into the favorite category, and I suppose it’s just the relationship that happens over time in front of my camera…

I’ve shot Miss Brielle a half a dozen times or more at this point. Her family has continued to trust me by investing in my art and showing up to the light. Getting to know the children in front of my camera is a gift that honors me, and if I’m honest, I think it produces my best work. This is my favorite session of hers to date.

Scottsdale Childrens PhotographerI feel inspired…playing with the light more, taking a few extra steps back, shooting wide open. I am learning to play more this year, in my art, in my perspective, in my life. The world around me actually feels fragile, sad–learning to play has actually made me feel more alive and helped me cope with all the sadness I see around me.

Scottsdale Childrens PhotographerThis one is the definition of connection to me, connection and JOY!!

Scottsdale Childrens PhotographerScottsdale Childrens PhotographerAnd these two…probably my two favorites from the day. The mood and tones stun me. Their connection is so strong.
