Hovering Heart Photography bio picture
  • Hi there!

    I'm Lynette, a Phoenix Portrait Photographer in love with the desert light. I am a momma to two beautiful boys and married to an amazing man I've known since the sixth grade.

    My mission is to capture those precious, fleeting moments of you and your loved ones. Life goes by so fast and we need to capture the time we have with each other.

    Thank you for stopping by my site and I hope I will have the pleasure to capture those moments for you!

“Eric and I met the traditional way, at the club. We have been friends for a very long time. Eric would call me everyday and we started to date very slowly. At the beginning I was not trying to be serious but he always treated me like a princess. Eric took me on many first trips to Sedona, Mexico, Chicago, Portland, Thailand, Hong Kong, Bali and Singapore. Eric and I have share so many memories and I can’t wait to make even more with him. We understand each other very well. We did a lot of growing up together. Whether being friends or dating, Eric and I have share a special energy and attraction that has pulled us together. Now, we are engaged and I am so excited to share our life and journey together. We love each other very much.” Ruby

“Being a mother is learning about strengths you didn’t know you had and dealing with fears you never knew existed.” -Linda Wooten-

These are some of my favorite sessions of the year. When moms decide to get in the frame is super special to me. I can say that I am super guilty of not getting in the frame enough. But when I do I don’t regret it. Knowing my kids will have these photos of me when they grow up makes my heart so happy.

Love this family so much! They just welcomed their second baby boy in December and i’m so excited to share the boy mom title with my dear friend Kourtney. She is one of the sweetest people ever. She totally makes being a mom look good.

When Lynette asked me to write a statement about motherhood it really got me thinking. What is motherhood? What does it mean to me? How has it changed me?

Motherhood is hard, emotional, trying, exhausting, but above all, amazing. It is labeling yourself as a mom, and sometimes forgetting who you really are beneath the piles of laundry, dirty dishes, and copious amounts of legos. It is kisses and cuddles and multiple “I’m sorry’s”. It is wishing the day was over and at the same time wishing it would never end.

I may have bags under my eyes, a few extra pounds, and constant spit up in my hair, but being a mother has allowed me to embrace the imperfections and be grateful for all the chaos. It has opened my heart and eyes to something so much bigger. I have hopes and dreams that never would have existed without my children. So to answer my question of how motherhood has changed me; for the better. So much better.”

It was hard to not post all the photos from this session. The desert and a glowing mama never disappoint. There is just something so peaceful about it. It was mid December here in Phoenix when these were taken and probably almost 80 degrees. This is the time of the year why we live here. The location was a little bit of a hike but totally worth it. The cactus garden and pretty dry grass mixed into it.
Ashleigh was such a rockstar. Getting to talk to my mamas during their shoot and ask them how everything is going and if they’ve planned their nursery is so much fun to hear.
 “Nothing in all my life has compared to this experience. I never anticipated how much I could love being pregnant- how incredible the human body is. The fact I am growing a human is still mind blowing. I cannot wait for us to meet our little man, to see my husband become a father, to see the bond of my two boys develop. Life’s about to change and I truly could not be more excited.” – Ashleigh

My goal for 2018 is to shoot WAY more film and with this shoot I shot about half film and half digital and to be honest my fave was the film of course. I didn’t even blog any of the digital. This shoot was so good for my creative soul. A stunning mama and location and a simple flowy dress have my heart all day everyday.
Words from mama:

As I sit back and reflect on my journey this pregnancy there are so many emotions that surface. This was my second pregnancy. My first was a complete breeze, I was extremely lucky. I honestly enjoyed every moment of being pregnant with my son. It was so magical watching my body transform and grow a tiny human. This pregnancy did not go the same as the first. I dealt with a lot of nausea, most things made me nauseous, and migraines that were unbearable. They came every single day and were like something I have never experienced. I normally like to take control of certain situations that happen in my life but I felt completely out of my own body and everything happening was purely out of my control. I really struggled dealing with that for the first two trimesters which made my emotions at an all time high. I was constantly challenged to balance my normal life by being a great mom to my toddler, and also take care of my body as it was going through this transition. There were so many days I had to trust in myself, my body, the process and believe that all this is happening for the most amazing reason and that I could handle it! As my third trimester rolled around I finally started to get my energy back, and feel like myself again! I was able to truly step back and enjoy how beautiful it was to grow this baby. Although my pregnancies were very different they were both just as wonderful and special to me. It is so important to embrace your changing body, and this experience ultimately made me appreciate myself and what I am able to endure. These photos will forever remind me of just that. You are only pregnant for such short amounts of time in your life so take in every high and every low, every fluttery kick and hiccup, because before you know it your sweet bundle of joy will be here. That 9 months although tough at times is oh so beautiful and is the closest you will ever be to your child. I am currently going into my 38th week and I am so thankful to still have this baby inside me growing and kicking away. Pregnancy is such a blessing and should never be taken for granted. Even on days that I wanted to give up, I reminded myself that this baby chose me and I need this little soul just as much as it needs me.”
