Expecting beauty in the mountains {Pregnant in Flagstaff, AZ}

Flagstaff has some really amazing and unique scenery. I loved that we were able to meet up at this beautiful spot with some of Flagstaff’s most epic scenery and a stunning mom to be. We met around sunset and were able to capture these beautiful parents to be in the Aspen trees, then in front of our mountain. Enjoy the love and beauty! Flagstaff aspen tree maternity photography sessionFlagstaff forest maternity photography sessionAspen tree flagstaff maternity photographerFlagstaff mountain maternity photography sessionflagstaff silhouette maternity photography

This Sedona maternity session was so fun, and this beauty rocked her session in the amazing Oak Creek here in northern AZ! I love how the amazing red rocks perfectly compliment her beautiful growing curved belly. The creek and the rocks of Sedona and Oak Creek are so peaceful and such an amazing location for any photos, and especially for such a special time in life. Thanks for stopping by the blog and enjoy the beauty…Sedona Maternity PhotographyMaternity Photography West Fork Oak CreekPregnant Sedona PhotographyOak Creek Pregnancy PhotographySedona Maternity Photography-17

3 Simple Tips for Looking Beautiful In Your Maternity Photos {Flagstaff Maternity and Baby Photographer}

3 Simple Tips for Looking Beautiful In Your Maternity Photos {Flagstaff Maternity and Baby Photographer}

Being pregnant is such a special and amazing time, but I know a lot of pregnant moms have no interest in being in from of the camera. I encourage you to, no matter what! It is such a beautiful time in your life and you will treasure the photos for a very long time, I promise!

Here are 3 tip for looking beautiful in your maternity photos.

1) Keep your hands on your belly, it creates a beautiful connection with your baby and brings attention to your belly too…

2) Get a close up and a side shot. This keeps the focus on the sweet belly and the older sibling, in case you are not feeling like getting your entire self in the photos at the moment…Katie Woodard Flagstaff Photographer-13

3) Get your hair and makeup done! How often do you treat yourself to that? And what a perfect time to pamper yourself…Katie Woodard Flagstaff Photographer-39

Sitting up is a big deal!! {Flagstaff Baby Photographer}

Sitting up is a big deal!! {Flagstaff Baby Photographer}

Sitting up is a big deal! And baby smiles are the cutest. And hugs from Mommy, well there is a lot of great things going on here- this little guy is a very well loved youngest brother with 5 older siblings! Do you think he is going to have some fun? I have known this sweet mom since we bought our house about 6 years ago. We were lucky to have them as neighbors. But after a few shorts meet ups, I got the sad news that they were moving! Luckily they ended up back in Flagstaff a few years later and are still living in our neighborhood. Our kids had lots of fun in the cut-de-sac before they moved though! They are all so sweet and fun and man I wish my hair was still as red as Mom’s!!

Thank you for allowing me to capture your family and here are a few favorites…

Pink and White Trees! {Flagstaff Family and Baby Photography}

Pink and White Trees! {Flagstaff Family and Baby Photography}

You know how when you meet a new person of family and they are just so easy and fun to talk to? And how fun for me when it is a new family that I am photographing! I met this great family over the winter when I photographed their new daughter just after she was born.  They parents were so loving, relaxing and in love with their baby! I loved talking with mom and dad about their very cool jobs as an anthropologist and a geologist who studies Mars! And they happen to love the same show/book that I am partially obsessed with, Outlander.

This family loves spending time outside. We were excited to photograph their little one, who is sitting up strong these days, in front of the beautiful pink and white trees that are blooming right now. We met near sunset and as we were waiting for the sun the go down, we snuck off into the beautiful Flagstaff forest and found the most magical patch of light! Then we headed around the corner to the gorgeous row of pink trees and the beautiful few whites trees around the corner. It was a chilly Flagstaff evening so between photographing her, we wrapped her up in a few blankets. She was a trooper, and Mom and Dad are still just as in love, as you can see by the way they look at her!

It is an honor to capture your family again!! Here are a few favorites…

This month I went on an extremely fun field trip with my younger son’s 3-4th grade class. We went camping at Catalina State Park which is just north of Tucson, AZ and about a 4.5 hour drive from home in Flagstaff. We visited our state capital in Phoenix and met District 6’s House of Representatives, did some hiking in Catalina State Park and went to the Biosphere 2! I loved learning that Biosphere 1 is planet Earth. There are not people living in the biosphere at this time, it is currently used as a research lab. But there were people living in there! In the early 90’s a group stayed for 2 years and then another stayed for about 6 months. It was fascinating to tour!
