As a birth and lifestyle photographer, I enjoy capturing the organic moments of life. The moments that can not be easily replicated. I am a lover of books, and similarly I strive to let my photographs tell a story. Whether it is a newborn session with two very tired, overwhelmed new parents; a family session with toddlers and their own agendas; or an intense birth - there is always a story to tell.

We can not thank Jessica enough for the many memories she has captured for us so far. She first captured our growing family for a maternity shoot that felt like just another evening out with our family. Her candid approach kept us at ease, especially our toddler who thought it was just another night playing cars on Mommy’s tummy. Then she blessed us with photos of our dear little girl’s birth. With only one other person allowed in the operating room, we knew beyond a doubt, that we wanted Jessica there to capture the moment. We will forever cherish the photos that tell a story of my sweet girl’s arrival in this world. The photos unfold a story that we otherwise would have not remembered so vividly. Not only did she capture the emotion in the room and our precious baby girl’s first moments in this world, but she stayed by my side and held my hand as my husband attended to our daughter. For Jessica it is clear, that this is not just a job, but a passion and a commitment to helping families preserve moments in time. Her style is natural, candid, real. She doesn’t capture the staged moments, but the moments that you often forget, the short glimpses that show raw emotion. Thank you for helping us capture our story, one that will continue to grow through your photos for many years to come!

When my son, Brady, was born, we were very eager to get newborn photos done. I’ve known Jess since middle school and had recently seen the beautiful pictures that she’d done for her sister’s son’s birth. It was basically a no-brainer on who we’d choose to take Brady’s photos. She came to our house and made the experience so stress free and natural. First, it was great that she was willing to come to our house so we didn’t have to travel far with a 2 week old. Then, as I was stressing about if he would cry the whole time or need to be fed in the middle of shooting, Jess reassured me to do what I needed to do. She was very patient and never made us feel uncomfortable. My son did cry a few times and I thought the photos would only show him being upset. When we got the photos back, (and in such a short time!) I was amazed at what she captured. We absolutely loved the photos! Jess was able to show all kinds of emotions, special moments, and the perfect little guy he is. You would’ve never known he was fussy! To say we were pleased, is an understatement. We look forward to many more sessions with Jess
