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

When couples invite me to document their journey into parenthood, all the feelings I had when I started on the adventure come rushing back to me. There is truly no more magical of an experience than growing a tiny human. The calm and warmth (and I’m not talking about the temps outside) of maternity sessions just bring me such delight. Although I don’t shoot weddings or couples, I kind of feel like this is my version of those butterflies-in-your-tummy, love sweet love portrait sessions.

I mean… look at the pure excitement and happiness on these two faces.

Got a bun in the oven? I’d love to capture your sweet bump! Contact me to chat about your Maternity Portrait session.
