On linux you can mount images using the loopback device.

You can do the same on FreeBSD, although you use a different command.

So one way to go about this would be as follows. Boot up the native FreeBSD. Create an empty image file of appropriate size - say 4GB. Mount this image and copy the installed FreeBSD to the image. While doing this using native tools, remember to skip copying the image file onto itself, as that would result in a recursion you don't want. Finally, move the image you just created to your host system. This might not be the quickest way of doing it, but it seems simple enough.
