My objective during our session is to capture those moments that we all experience, the ones when you look at your child and they make that one face and smile and you think to yourself that seriously there has never been a cuter thing in the history of the world. Those moments as a family when you understand that you all go together so well even though at times your son seems to come from a different planet and you wonder when the mother-ship is coming back to get him. Basically I’m trying to get as close as possible to capturing what makes your family your life. It’s a tall order. I want to capture the beauty of your family the way that you feel it and understand it and want it to last forever.

We've gone to Jessica for photos for almost five years now - maternity to newborn photos for both our kids and on to annual photos with all of us. She is so great with the kids and manage to coax smiles out of them even when I'm sure it's going to be a flop. She listens to what I'd like in terms of groupings and always delivers exactly what we've asked for, and always quickly. She is responsive via email, prompt with shoots, and our kids have always been happy and comfortable around her - what more could you ask for!
Jessica is the best around! She recently visited our home for a newborn photo shoot with our daughter. She was super communicative, arrived right on time, and made everything incredibly easy. As a mother herself she was great with our daughter and was able to calm her when she cried, swaddle her, and elicit the smiles that made for incredible photos. I was amazed at the quick turnaround time and am in LOVE with the photos she captured. I was worried that it was a gloomy, overcast day but she is an expert at working with light and the photos are magical. Everything came in a beautiful online gallery that was easy to download and share and Jess was wonderfully responsive throughout the process. Look no further for a photographer for your family. You won't be disappointed!
Goodness, where to start. Jessica did both maternity and newborn photos with us. The photos were magical. We were so comfortable around her and had a blast taking the maternity photos, so we couldn't wait to capture our little one after their debut. The newborn photos were amazing, as expected. She was able to capture so many adorable little faces and poses that we simply couldn't get enough of.
Today I found myself reminiscing as we approach the little one's first birthday, and I'm even MORE enamored with these photos than I was when we first got them. I'm so glad we trusted Jessica to capture these precious moments. We can't wait for another excuse for photos!
