Before the photography session

To capture your child's spontaneous expressions and personality, Jessica likes to photograph your child in his or her own environment. This can be a bedroom, playroom, neighborhood, or a favorite park. Jessica is happy to help choose the right location with you. Because she prefers to work with mostly natural light, decent weather is necessary.

Parents should dress their child in solid or simple patterned, comfortable clothing. This keeps the focus on the child and helps Jessica create classic images.

During the photography session

Jessica makes the entire photography session a fun and effortless experience.
Each photo session takes one or two hours.

Jessica likes to capture unprompted moments rather than pose the pictures. She lets children be themselves as she documents the individual personality of each child.

After the photography session

Jessica posts a private website for parents, family and friends to view and order images. She also provides, when needed, minor retouching. Requested major retouching is an additional cost.

Oftentimes the best way to capture the essence of the child is with a photo book from the photo session. These photo books can come in all different sizes ranging from coffee table to wallet size. Jessica works with a very talented professional designer to create custom books that will complete the experience. Although encouraged, it is not required to order a photo book. Samples books are available to view in person or click here to view one online.
