Maternity Session

Congratulations to Julia on her second bundle of joy-due to arrive very soon! This session officialIy made me fall in love with taking pictures on farms! What a spectacular environment for this beautiful family to have their pictures taken. These photographs were taken this past summer in Ohio, but I am determined to find some local Arizona farms willing to host Act Naturally Photography lifestyle sessions. About the photographer, Natalie Wheeler: I am a full time photographer and mom of […]

Nielson Family Lifestyle Session

The Nielson’s are dear friends of ours, and I was so glad to have the opportunity to visit them last Saturday to document their typical weekend morning. We had a fun filled morning of dinosaur-shaped and horse-shaped pancake making, a tickle-fest, a couple of games of UNO, and even did some dancing to their new favorite kid’s music “The Anna Banana Band”* (see the pictures of them screaming “ROAR” for the Dinosaur song!). We ended the session outside in the […]

Michael Turns 1 & Smashes his Cake!

I have had the privilege of photographing this handsome little guy twice now! I absolutely ADORE him. When his mom contacted me to do his one year pictures and cake smash, I was so excited to get the opportunity to take his pictures a second time. While they live in the D.C. area now, we were fortunately able to meet up this summer to do the session. Michael is one of the happiest and most pleasant babies I’ve ever met. […]

Scottsdale, AZ: In-Home Newborn Session

I recently had the pleasure of doing a newborn lifestyle session with an absolutely adorable and sweet baby girl. Lifestyle sessions are perfect for newborns, because we roll with the baby’s schedule. I like to get pictures of the baby awake and full of personality as well as some shots of them sleeping peacefully. Documenting the first few days of baby’s life at home is something, in the fog of having just had a baby, parents will cherish many years […]

Mornings, Afternoons, and Evenings at Prairie-dise

Summers spent by Lake Erie are full of fun and new things for the kids to explore.  They had lots of fun finding new bugs, playing in a toy closet that holds many of the toys I played with as a child, swinging, painting rocks, eating freshly caught perch, and most importantly spending time with our loved ones, who are usually about 2,000 miles away from us. These pictures tell the story of our summers at a little place we […]

1-2-3-4 Quadruplets!

The only thing sweeter than a newborn baby is, well, FOUR newborn babies! This beautiful family just went from a family of 2 to a family of 6, and they couldn’t be happier. Seeing the love and adoration mom and dad had for each baby girl, was completely heart-warming. These sweeties had only been home a few weeks at the time of this session, but mom and dad were already a well oiled machine and even looked well rested. Each […]

City Session: Family Photography Session in Downtown Phoenix

 I love exploring and finding new places for photography sessions. Going downtown for a session is great because you get a little piece of your city in the pictures! I love finding colorful murals as backdrops for my sessions and am so grateful to these artists for adding these great works of art to our city. City sessions are sometimes unpredictable but the adventure is well worth it. To book your city session, please contact me: 412-302-7010 or Natalie@actnaturallyphotography.com   […]
