"Jessica has been my go to photographer for both of my girls. During my pregnancy with my first I researched many newborn photographers and after seeing Jessica's work never looked back, I reached out to get on her calendar asap as she books up quickly. I absolutely love her work, commitment, and professionalism and I consistently recommend her to anyone looking. "

"Can’t say enough positive things about Jessica. I had such a wonderful experience with Jessica and her whole staff who are very professional and also personable. She made me feel so comfortable and beautiful at 34 weeks pregnant which is not an easily task." - Ashli

"I had amazing maternity and newborn shoots with Jessica! She is a talented photographer, fun to work with, and the quality of her work is beyond compare. During my maternity shoot, Jessica made me feel comfortable, confident, and beautiful and made sure to get every look I wanted. She was helpful and patient when it came to posing and created a very relaxed environment. The pictures came absolutely stunning and I’m so glad i have these photos as beautiful memories. I used her again for my son’s newborn shoot. She worked so great with him that I was able to sit back and relax as she did her work (which is valuable as a new mom!) Once again the photos came out perfect and I’m so grateful she was able to capture these precious moments for me. Thank you so much Jessica! I will recommend you to everyone I know!! Can’t wait for next time!!" - Gabriella

"I have now used Jessica for newborn photos for both of my boys. I knew after using her for my first son that there was no chance I would ever use anyone else for my second. Her attention to detail is like none other and I knew I can sit back during the whole session and not have to worry about a single thing (which is very hard for me). Every pose is carefully thought out with every little finger placed so perfectly. She was very patient if the boys got fussy or if I needed to feed them and I never felt like I was being rushed. We got back our photos very quickly and Jessica worked with us on the edits to make sure we were 100% happy. She truly is the best and her works speaks for itself." - Arlene

"I would give Jessica 100 stars if I could, but it only allows up to 5. I had been following Jessica’s work before I had became pregnant, in hopes of the day that I do - I had her info to contact her. I selected her for this opportunity because her photos blew me away. When I found out I was pregnant, I booked her for my maternity shoot. She took all of my ideas into consideration, asked what I liked or didn’t like, and was really incredibly thorough in the questionnaire to cover all ground. I was soooo comfortable with her during my shoot and everything went so well. I was able to go through a large variety of proofs, and pick the photos for my package. They were beautiful even before the edits. When I received the final copies, they took my breath away! Which I feel funny saying being that they were photos of me, but they photos were honestly gorgeous. When selecting Jessica, I knew the photos would be PERFECT - but after seeing the final copies , she surpassed even those expectations. She does incredible work and her passion shows through each photo. She is the only one you should ever book for a maternity shoot to capture the most beautiful experience us women can go through!" - Lindsey

"Jessica is simply amazing! Just had my maternity session with her and she’s just an amazing person and photographer! From the time I reached out (34 weeks pregnant) to the delivery of the final shots, it was a super collaborative and efficient process. I traveled across the country to take pictures with Jessica, that's how amazing she is! Creatively, she provided great feedback on wardrobe to capture what I had in mind. Thank you so much, Jessica, for such great memories! Your attention to detail is exceptional! You are a kind and beautiful soul. I will always look back fondly at my maternity shoot!" - Rebecca

"I had my maternity and newborn photos done with Jessica and her team and was beyond happy with both sessions! Not only were her and her team professional, they made my family and I so comfortable and were so sweet! Jessica is amazing and truly so talented, the photos were all so stunning and the turnaround time was so quick! I recommend her to anyone during this special time and look forward to using her again in the future!" - Michelle

"I did a maternity shoot with Jessica. My pictures came out absolutely phenomenal, cannot say enough about how beautiful they were and really exceeded my expectations. Her studio was so cozy and tasteful. Jessica has a really warm personality and made me feel really comfortable throughout the entire shoot, she is a sweetheart. I was able to take breaks in between shots and she was very patient with me. I got my proofs almost immediately after the shoot, and the retouched photos very quickly thereafter. I am very picky with photographs, and I wouldn’t choose anyone but Jessica if I were to do it again!" - Viktoriya
