Arizona Newborn & Maternity Photos
Newborn photography & maternity portraits with a natural, bright & airy lifestyle feel by Scottsdale photographer Jennifer Bowen.
Jennifer has been a full time photographer in Phoenix for more than a decade and loves capturing this special time in your life! Maternity photos to document your growing belly and what this transformative time looks and feels like -- and lifestyle newborn photos to capture not just their tiny feet, hands and sweet face, but also the love you feel for this little human who just doubled the size of your heart (for the first, second, fourth or 10th time)!

Jennifer typically photographs newborns in their own home, using your furnishing and baby room as the backdrop. She will bring a few items to the session (such as baskets and blankets, etc) but prefers to keep the session very lifestyle in nature and use mostly what you have. Lots of natural light definitely helps!
We recommend scheduling newborn pictures in the first 2-3 weeks of life when they sleep more deeply and still have their tiny, sweet newborn faces, hands and feet. :-)
Newborn sessions typically last 1.5 - 2 hours to allow for feedings & diaper changes. Sessions are scheduled between 9 AM - 3 PM during the week, and by special appointment on weekends.

If your baby is already a month or two old, and you only want to invest in one big professional portrait shoot for the year, Jennifer recommends waiting until they are around 6-8 months old, as that is the next key milestone stage that photographs adorably -- when they are sitting up unsupported, and are very smiley & interactive. It's such a cute and fun stage!

2) Newborn session
3) 6-8 Month old session

At the end of the year, we give you a beautiful fine art album with several images from each of your sessions (you can choose them) to keep and cherish forever. It is a beautiful time capsule from a time in your life that goes by so incredibly fast, and one you won't ever forget.
