Jess will exceed your expectations.

Jess will exceed your expectations. She has a great personality, & she's able to capture perfect moments very efficiently because she's takes the time to get to know her clients, patiently waits for the shot, & has a fantastic eye for composition. We've always had a difficult time choosing "favorites" from the bunch! Her prints are top notch, as is her packaging. *review taken from Facebook page reviews*

Incredible artist ;)

You do beautiful work and have always captured our family perfectly! First with our first two fur babies and then we welcomed our first baby you just captured her personality so perfectly in your photos can't wait till our next session xoxo

Jess is fab

We had so much fun shooting family photos with Jess in April. Jess put all the adults at ease, even a reluctant-to-be-photographed grandma, and was perfectly silly with our 4 month old baby girl. The photo shoot exceeded all of our expectations. And the photos! Oh my, we really loved each & every one! Choosing prints was one of the harder decisions we've made in a while. We are so happy that we made the choice to have Jess take our photos to celebrate this special time when our family of two expanded to a family of three. The prints we ordered were great quality (and the packaging was top notch) and bring us so much joy hanging in our home (and the grandmas are enjoying their prints too)! Thanks Jess! Can’t wait till next time!

Couldn't be happier

Jess took our maternity and newborn pictures of our son. We loved both sets of pictures. They all came out so beautifully. Jess is great to work with. She has such a wonderful personality and it made me so comfortable to be around her. The newborn session was also wonderful. She was so great with him and patient and made sure just to get the right shots of him. Jess is very talented and her fun and creative personality makes her that much more fun to work with. Anyone that hires her to take their pictures will not be disappointed. Thank you so much, Jess!!

Our special Annivaersary

We were so apprehensive about having this session because of our age and thinking that it might be a bit silly. Jess made us feel so good about the shot and it was so beautifully staged. We were absolutely thrilled with the pictures we received. Our children now have those wonderful pictures and they all absolutely rave about them to everyone they share them with. Beyond her proffesionalism, she is witty beautiful (inside and out) and truly amazing. Thank-you Jess with all our hearts.

makes me want more!!!

I've never donea photo shoot in my adult life, but Jess made the session so fun, creative, sexy, and amazing!!! Her great personality really made it comfortable for me and helped me feel confident. She loved me unusual ideas and helped create others. We had shared so many laughs during our shoot that I forgot that I was taking pictures!! Her professionalism captured the most amazing shots!! Her work by far, is purely full of love, dedication, and excellence!! I can't wait til I can be privileged to work with her in the future!! She's like no other!!

A Day We Will Never Forget!

My family and I had our first family pictures taken today 07/21/2012 and Jess did a great job. My 3 yr old daughter was not wanting to smile and Jess got her to smile. She was very professional and patient. My husband accidently locked the keys in our car and Jess called her husband to help us out. They went above and beyond to help us and we will forever be gratful.

An amazing spirit to work with

Almost a year ago my fiance at the time chose to work with photographer that we knew would capture beautiful moments for our special day, our wedding. At that time we had no idea that we would be working with someone that we could call our friend. She not only took our wedding photos but she helped the day move along effortlessly and stress free. We received the emails days prior encouraging us that things would be amazing and it was with her help.
She took our ideas for our engagement shoot and ran with it and they came out beyond our expectations. As highschool sweethearts we were able to capture that again in her beautiful shots.
We thank Jess every time we see and speak to her wether on the phone, through texts or emails. The gratitude just cant be shown enough.
