Meet Jaxson! | scottsdale newborn photographer

Talk about a close call... within just 48 hours of her maternity session, Sammantha gave birth to this beautiful baby boy. So those "false" labor contractions she was having in the studio throughout her maternity shoot were actually the real deal!!! Of course, you would never have known it by how calm, cool and collected she was. I am just so thankful that she had a safe labor and delivery AND that I had the chance to photograph this sweet little boy. Many CONGRATS to Samm and Trent!!!

Picture your picture | scottsdale wedding & portrait photographer

Ever wonder how that 8x10 print is going to look above your sofa or that mantle? If you're a visual person like me, you need to SEE how something is going to look before you actually tack it up on your walls. Jennifer Halen Photography can help you see your vision to reality and give you a little peace of mind with the help of some awesome wall gallery displays.

In the sample above, you can barely see that 8x10 print above the couch... a print that size would just get overpowered by the expansive wall and the weight of the couch. On the other hand, the 24x30 or 30x40 images would really make a statement and have a visual impact in the room IF that's what you're going for. 

Now that doesn't mean you have to rule out the 8x10 or small prints altogether. That's where we can get creative in designing a wall grouping for your space like the one shown here:

One 20x24 with a 3" mat and 1.5" moulding, two 8x10s in 11x14" mats with 1" mouldings and two 5x7s in 8x10" mats with 1" mouldings
It's all a matter of taking into account the space you're trying to fill and the visual impact that you're going for with your images. So don't hesitate to ask for some design inspiration. That's what I'm here for... to make your fine art portraits come to life in your home!

Samm & Trent | scottsdale maternity photographer

This was the first portrait session in my new home studio (YIPPEEEEEE!), and I couldn't be happier with how they turned out. Samm and Trent were such an amazing couple to work with... so natural in front of the camera. Not only were we able to capture some really sweet, tender moments between them, but we were able to let their fun personalities shine through, too (Gooooooooo PACKERS!) Can't wait to share the photos of little baby Jaxson! Stay tuned...

OH, and if you love your doggies as much as I do, go check out Samm's dog walking business, Wagging Tails Dog Walking! I'd trust her with my furry babies any day. :)

Meet Jin-Su! | scottsdale newborn photographer

When my brother mentioned he was trying to decide what to give to our friends, Meghann & Woo, for their baby shower, I ever so gently chirped in "HELLO, McFLY! You are looking at a photographer who loves to capture newborn images!!!" Giving a gift certificate for a newborn photo session is a gift that will outlast any crib, layette set or diaper cake. :) In fact, the new parents expressed that it was one of the most thoughtful presents they received. Woohoo! Mission accomplished. 

This little cutie was initially quite alert (and even a little "suspicious" about my presence), but he soon fell asleep and was a JOY to photograph.  CONGRATS, Meghan & Woo!! I am so grateful I had the opportunity to capture these images of your sweet baby boy.
