Jamie's Maternity Photo's | Phoenix and Scottsdale Maternity Photographer

My sister is due anytime now with her third child.. a little girl, so I asked my very good friend Kimberly Bee to show me some of her secret places that she shoots and tag team on a maternity session with me. We went out to nowhere land and got some amazing shots. These images are a mix of Kimberly Bee's and my images. So much fun!

I love this one that Kim got.

Holiday Mini Session 09'

I was at Home Depot yesterday and realized that they already have the Christmas trees and decorations out. It always surprises me how early they get those out, but then I realized in all reality 2 months really isn’t that long, especially considering how busy the holidays get. It then made me start thinking about all the things that I need to do to make sure that this year I actually decorate for Christmas. The list is already pretty long!! I better start soon!

One of the things on my list is Family Christmas Pictures. Every year we do some fun type of photo session and send out cards with the best pictures. Sending out fun and creative Christmas cards with pictures of my family are one of my favorite things to do during the holidays. I love receiving fun cards too! However, I believe the key to a good Holiday Card is the picture... those are the cards I keep on my fridge year round.

This time of year is busy and it’s hard to schedule time to get that great picture, so I am announcing a fun thing this year, Holiday Mini Sessions.

Holiday Mini Sessions are a great way to capture some really fun pictures of your family in a short time for a little less than you would normally spend on a full family session. They include creative and different Holiday cards that will be sure to make it on every fridge that you send them to!! We will have 2 different dates available for you to choose from and each session will be 25 minutes long.

What is the cost and what is included?

Cost: $225


  • 25 minute session to capture as many images as we possibly can, both traditional and casual
  • Your choice of one digital file or 24 foldable Holiday cards (created by us). Additional cards are available for purchase if you need more than 24.
  • One facebook image for each image you purchase. Facebook images will be watermarked with the Kimberly Jarman logo. The image will be the same one you purchased.

The digital files, other than the facebook images are not available for sale. You must purchase a print to receive it as a facebook image.

The $225 is due at the time of booking. Please arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled time to ensure everyone is ready. Make sure everyone is your party is dressed and ready to go. We will not be able to go over our scheduled time.

Parents, please make sure your kids are fed and ready to go. Feel free to bring any items that will help kids relax and have fun... bribery with goldfish crackers or other treats is absolutely allowed and encouraged!! Also feel free to bring a special toy that will help them if needed.

Your images will be ready to view 2 weeks after the sessions. You will need to schedule a time to come into the studio to view your images and choose your card choice. At this time if there are other images you would like to purchase you can do so.

What are the dates for the sessions?

Dates: November 7th and November 22nd

November 7th - Off the Beaten Path - A Ghost Town (Old Buildings and Cars and something totally different and unique - Very Arizona)

November 22nd - Downtown Scottsdale at the Civic Center (grass, trees, and some fun old buildings for different textures)

Times: (these are the times for both dates)

2:00 - 2:25 (November 22nd booked)
2:30 - 2:55
3:15 - 3:40
3:45 - 4:10
4:15 - 4:40
4:45 - 5:10

What Holiday Mini Sessions are:

  • A great time to capture some priceless pictures of your family.
  • A great time to get fun and creative with your pictures. To do something different and fun.
  • A short session geared to capture at least one phenomenal picture to use for your Holiday Cards.
  • A great way to get some great prints for your walls if you’ve been wanting to fill those empty spaces with fun pictures.

What Holiday Mini Session are NOT:
  • A full blown session with multiple outfit changes or locations
  • A time to do multiple different sets of family (i.e. Having your extended family come out and do different group settings all in 30 minutes. We won’t have enough time to do something like this, but would love to do this for you in a normal session time.
  • A senior session, baby session, or engagement session (All of these sessions take much more time than we can fit in 25 minutes. I encourage you to contact us for more information on these types of sessions!!)
Sessions will go fast as there are only 6 sessions per day. To book your session please email me.

Grand Opening Party | Photography Studio | Downtown Mesa

6 years ago I started on this journey of owning my own business and starting a photography studio. It was a little scary and a little exciting. I think that people thought it was just a fad.. maybe a hobby, but when my family and friends saw that I was serious and saw my business start to succeed they were truly proud of me. It hasn't been easy. The journey to where I am now has had a lot of highs and lows, a lot of giggles and a lot of tears. But life is good. Business is good. And I still LOVE what I do.

There has been a lot of change in the last 6 years. Change in my outlook, my approach, my style, my photography, my business, my family, and locations.

2 years ago we made a huge jump to move out of my house and open up a studio. I wanted people to know that I was serious and that I was for real. A studio showed that I was in it for the long haul. We moved to a decent size space of 700 square feet and it was wonderful. It was like a Chicago loft. Totally different than anything that was in Arizona. I was in love with the space and really enjoyed going to work and getting out of my pajamas!

This last summer change happened again. It wasn't planned. In fact I was about to sign another 3 year lease for the location that I was in, but it wasn't meant to be. In all reality we needed more space. My business continues to grow and to go any further we needed to make a huge leap of faith and get more exposure and space. So, this summer we took the plunge and moved once again. This time it is a much bigger location with store front space and a space for a shooting studio. After over 8 weeks of renovations we are so close to officially opening our doors. The building is done, the paint is up, the floors are shiny, and the furniture has all been purchased. The only thing left are the final touches... hanging all the images that I have photographed over the last years.

I'm excited to finally have this project complete and open to everyone. It's been a rough few months, but next week we open the doors for real.

I want to personally invite you to our New Studio Grand Opening Party.

If you have ever wanted to see what we do and more of our work now is a great opportunity to come. We will be giving out a lot of specials as well for portraits so you won't want to miss it!


Join us for appetizers, desserts, drinks, door prizes (including a free portrait session!) and more as we celebrate the grand opening of the new Kimberly Jarman Photography studio. The party will be going from 6:00-9:00 so make sure to stop by and check out our new space!

We will have lots to eat and a really fun photo booth for everyone to take apart in.

Heather + Chris

Heather and Chris are getting married in September. It's my next wedding and I'm totally excited. They have such a fun story of how they met. Heather was in the band at ASU and Chris was in the band at University of Washington. They met at a band function and hit it off. Since then they've been dating long distance and are finally getting married.

They are so cute! We had to get some of their school spirit in the photo's!

We then headed over to downtown Gilbert and got some great shots!

A little fun!!!

Kim's Bridal Session | Bridal Portraits | Scottsdale Wedding Photographer

I have never done a "Bridal Session" until Kimberlee asked me to do one of her. I know all of you from the south are in shock right now. Bridal sessions are very popular in most states, but here in AZ we just do an engagement session and then do a few bridals the day of the wedding; however, I really like the idea of a bridal session for a couple of reasons.

1) Usually on the day of the wedding everything is going so fast and one of the first things that get's cut is a lot of pictures of the bride. How sad. So a bridal session is a great way to get some really amazing pictures.

2) The bride spends so much time getting ready, finding her perfect dress, getting her hair and makeup flawless. I know for me personally I have never looked as good as I did on my wedding day, so having pictures of this time in your life is important.

Some people will do bridals before hand and others will do it after the wedding. Either way, be prepared to do things that you wouldn't do on the day of the wedding. Be prepared to get some really fun and neat pictures.

I LOVE how Kimberlee's bridals turned out. She is a stunning bride and everytime I take pictures of her I am in awe with how well she photographs. I worked on them all night last night and found some new favorites. Here are few of my favs.
