You’re not “unphotogenic” | You’re Your Own Worst Critic

Being in front of the camera is hard. It’s hard for me, and I literally do this for a living. Well, the camera part, not the “in front of it” part. But because we’re so hard on ourselves (especially women, am I right?) it’s really difficult not to see all of the...

People are talking.

“Jessie did a wonderful job capturing the perfect moments and memories of my newborn son. Jessie is talented but what makes her unique is her passion and zeal for catering to families and little ones is what really sets her apart. I would highly recommend Jessie for maternity/ newborn and family sessions. Her work is beautiful.”

— Kristi F.

“We LOVE working with Jessie. We initially used her for our newborn shoot and have continued to use her for family photos since – she is amazing with kids and getting them to smile, knows when they just need some time to run, and is so flexible and willing to work with you around timing, etc. She takes all the pressure off the “big day” of family photos and makes it a fun and easy experience. And, the photos always turn out amazing and she turns them around so quickly. Could not recommend her more!”

— Jackie C

“Jessica is amazingly talented with a camera and with kids. She was flexible working with our family’s schedule, kept our toddler engaged and entertained, and our newborn calm. A true baby whisperer. The photos captured a special time for our family perfectly and we are so grateful”
