"If you have a newborn and you need someone to take them off your hands for a few hours while you get to have coffee and snacks then Jessica is your girl!! Side benefit, you get some absolutely amazing pictures of your baby in all their squishy, sleepy, (very fleeting!!) newborn glory.
Jessica is an absolute pro at dealing with older kids too; I can never get my three year old to stand still and smile and we got some awesome shots of her with her new baby sister :)
I couldn't be happier with how the pictures turned out, and I would highly recommend Jessica for documenting your new bundle of joy in extremely cute poses and outfits!!"
"Where do I start??? Jessica is amazing! We hired her for our maternity pictures and then our newborn shoot! Mind you, I live in Sacramento! I booked her months in advance just to secure our photo session. Not only is she super talented, but she is so sweet and is amazing with children. She's the baby whisperer!!!
Jessica!! We need you again!! You're so talented and a godsend!"
"We recently met Jessica and she took pictures of our 2 year old. She was amazing. Her daughters even helped keep our son in good spirits. She got so many great pictures so quickly. I only wished we lived closer. Her prices are great and she's awesome. I can't speak more highly of her she really did a great job and we couldn't be happier with the pictures. Thanks again Jessica."
"I recently came across Jessica's website and fell in love with her photography style. With the superbloom in full effect in San Diego I had a vision- a little girl in a field of beautiful colorful flowers. From the moment I reached out to Jessica I knew she had a passion for photography!! She was so professional yet completely approachable... and willing to discuss my vision! She scoped out the perfect location and we were all set!! Since she has children of her own she had plenty of experience at getting my daughters attention!! She even got her to smile in many of the shots- this is a difficult task itself!!She has an amazing talent and I couldn't be happier with the finished product!! Her attention to detail in the final edits is very impressive. I can't wait to schedule family pictures!! If you are looking for a natural light photographer I highly recommend Jessica!!"
"I had a newborn session with Jessica and it couldn't have been any better! She had great information beforehand to make the session successful, and throughout the session I was impressed with how skillful she was handling and posing my newborn baby. She was very patient and took as much time as necessary to get the perfect picture. I ended up with so many great images! I was thrilled with my experience with Jessica and would highly recommend her to anyone!"
"Jessica just did a family session for us. We are absolutely thrilled with the pictures! Jessica was so creative with the shoot and it went very smooth. She has such an eye for backgrounds and landscapes and lighting. She was well prepared for the shoot and was very clear with instructions before the big day. She was extremely patient and kid with the kids (2 and 3 years old). I would recommend her to anyone I know! I also hope to use her again."
"Jessica is definitely one of the best newborn photographer I've ever meet. As a newborn photographer as well in Portugal, I had a mentoring with Jessica last week, and she was amazing and I could not be happier with the opportunity to learn with her. Jessica was so patient and sweet - with both of us, me and the baby! - and always so professional. I had a blast and feel blessed with everything I learned from her. It really change me and my will to be a better newborn photographer. THANK YOU JESSICA, you rock! :)"
"Amazing to work with! My husband and myself were incredibly happy with the memories Jessica captured for us. She was so patient and gentle with our newborn. Very friendly and laid back which made the session so relaxing. My husband and I sat on the couch and just watched in awe as she took the most beautiful pictures of our baby girl. I have and will continue to recommend her to friends and family. Her work speaks for itself! I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer."
"Jessica was wonderful I can only say amazing words about her she is so beyond talented and so patient and so good with people. She's was amazing with my toddler! I could not recommend her more to anyone , she captured my newborns first few days of life and I am beyond in love with my pictures."
