North Phoenix Desert Maternity Photographer | Mama Melissa

It was my first maternity photo session that lit my fire for photography. It took A LOT of convincing, but my sweet husband just kept reminding me that someday I would want to show our daughter (now there are two of them) what mommy looked like with her in my belly. So we hired a photographer. Like many mama-to-be’s, I felt anxious preparing for the shoot because in my hormone-influenced brain, I felt gross. I felt swollen. I felt the opposite of photo-worthy. But I was totally wrong. I can honestly look back now and say how grateful I am to have those images – for many reasons. My girls have already flipped through our maternity photos numerous times and just love seeing their “bump.” And I found a love for capturing life’s sweetest blessings by offering my passion for photography to others.

Motherhood is miraculous. The journey is unlike anything you’ll ever experience. I love being able to capture gorgeous mama’s on their journey. Maternity photography… I HEART YOU!

This beautiful lady is a second time SweetLife Maternity Mama – she’s like a celebrity on my website. 😉

Her grace and undeniable beauty certainly make my job pretty easy but pair that with a gorgeous the Arizona desert sunset and its pure Maternity Magic!

You guys, I’m way behind on sharing. So I’m playing catch up. This month marks the one year anniversary (I’m blushing that its been that long) of when I met up with this beautiful couple at one of my favorite outdoor photo locations in North Phoenix. The first thing I picked up on was their hippie/rocker vibe. I knew I would LOVE the photography session with them.

Their energy was so peaceful, playful and they were so cute with each other. I felt like an authentic lifestyle photographer (#dreamcometrue). They were totally comfortable being themselves in front of my camera. There is a saying in the lifestyle photography world to never actually tell clients to “just be yourself.” I mean, even I am not sure what to do with those lofty directions. But with these two, it didn’t even cross my mind. They just doted on each other and giggled about their new baby on the way. Such a delightful experience!

If I haven’t said it lately… I ABSOLUTELY LOVE MY JOB! <3

Confession: As this gorgeous mama stepped out of the car, it just blurted out of my mouth… “oh. my. gosh. you look like you literally swallowed a basketball. You look amazing!”

Now, some could take offense to the comment, I suppose (I’m certain this mama has heard that comment before as she just giggled and politely smiled). But I really meant it as a sincere compliment. It was out of complete envy I blurted that out. I only WISH I had looked so stunning during my pregnancies!

I must hand it to the beautiful pregnant ladies I’ve been photographing lately. You ladies make growing a baby look BEAUTIFUL!!! I mean, check this gorgeous girl out!! She’s literally glowing in the truest sense of the word. Everything is tiny with exception of that adorable baby bump. She lit up the desert for her session with me and daddy-to-be was more than happy to be her arm candy.

Ya’ll, Phoenix is in bloom… book your spring photo session with me today!
