As a photographer herself, Kaylene knew exactly where she wanted to take her sweet family to celebrate their pregnancy with baby #2. Her husband is in the military and so we needed to work around when he'd be home to do her maternity photoshoot, but it worked out perfectly and we were able to play, explore and enjoy the beautiful Salt River and Mountain at Water Users during sunset and golden hour.
The preserve was a perfect backdrop for this sweet family with their active toddler and the many different safe trails all along the water and among the cacti and trees. He especially loved getting snuggled and exploring the mini creeks and rock paths we discovered during their maternity session.
Natalia and her husband were so excited to be welcoming another baby into their family of three and wanted to have images to capture and cherish the memories of being just the three of them before their second daughter arrived. We went to a beautiful desert trail and got to walk, explore and laugh together to make sure her pregnancy and relationship with her oldest felt treasured and memorialized.
Katie and her family had recently relocated for military duty and wanted to capture the time when it was just the three of them before baby #2 made their debut.
We spent time playing and reading books together in this beautiful field and enjoyed the peaceful sunset.
Emily and her family split their time between Flagstaff and Phoenix, where they can get medical care for their son. They wanted to spend some time before their next baby came adventuring in nature and she really loved the idea of going to the Salt River. We were in luck, too, as a herd of wild horses crossed the river at the very end of our time. Her kids had a blast splashing and throwing stones, while loving on their beautiful mama and soon to be baby sibling!

Before welcoming her first baby, Lauren knew she wanted to have photos to commemorate her pregnancy and the weeks leading up to becoming a family of three.
She had a couple dresses that we incorporated into her session and we chose a beautiful outdoor trail in North Phoenix for its proximity to the city serene nature vibes.

Rivkah Leah was amazing in all aspects during my maternity shoot! Not only did the photos turn out beautifully (I am obsessed) but she also has one of the most beautiful personalities.
I went into the shoot nervous because my 3 year old son was also apart of it and I was worried he wouldn’t be very “cooperative” but Rivkah Leah was amazing with him and he LOVED her. So much so that he was upset she wasn’t coming home with us when we were done and was pouting in his car seat almost the entire way home. She is amazing at what she does. I 100% recommend her. I’ll definitely be doing another shoot with her and I’m sure my son will be happy to see her again. :)
We had an amazing maternity session with Rivkah and after following her on social media, I really adore her as a person and her morals and art style.
She captured our quirky little family so beautifully and she’s a very talented and unique photographer with so much to offer the families of Phoenix.
