intimate moments captured

the Family

I specialize in natural light photography.
In doing so, I believe it allows me to tell the most intimate real stories of your families in stunning settings. My approach to photography is to focus on those real, candid moments between you and your children! I do provide what I like to call gently guided posing - I will help direct you with your general best angles and how to interact if you're feeling a little silly or stiff - after all, how many of us frolick in overgrown grassy fields on the weekends?? The beauty of my approach however, is that while you are busy playing and chasing and loving on your little ones - I'm busy snapping away at the tiny moments you don't know are unfolding right before our eyes. Those little hand holding squeezes and tippy toe twirls are my favorites to capture.

let's take those every day moments and 
turn them into magic memories

Simply fill out the contact form and we'll chat about all the important details to get you scheduled. Once we've selected your session date, there's a retainer and contract to complete the booking process. When your forms have been completed, you are officially in my calendar

1. Say Hello

2. Planning your session and wardrobe

Once you've booked with me I'm in full planning mode. From selecting your location, to helping with your wardrobe styling and offering feedback - I'll take care of the little details so you don't need to stress! I will help you select the best color pallete for your family's wardrobe, and additionally will provide links to my most favorite websites for shopping. I will even offer specific clothing options and can build looks for each individual family member! If you'd like to borrow a gown or dress from my client closet, that can be arranged as well!

3. Your session date is here!

On the day of your session, we will meet at our selected location ready to have FUN! I like to capture my families in their most natural state - running, tickling, playing and laughing. We will take walks through fields, skip stones in the creek, tell silly jokes and laugh until our bellies hurt. I like to have you interact with each other as naturally as possible - no "look here and say cheese!" during any of my sessions!
I am ALL about those real, unposed smiles and tiny moments. 

4. your photographs

Following your session, I go through your images and edit them to enhance the mood, colors and light to perfectly showcase your family's love. You can expect your proofing gallery within three weeks of your session. After wiping the tears away from looking at the amazing family you've created, you will select your digital collection package and use your artwork credit to purchase amazing artwork for your walls!

"I cannot speak highly enough of Jessica and her work. The moment you meet her,
you're comfortable. Is there anything more important in family photos? 
I promise you, you will be thrilled with every single image! " - Jessica G.

"Jessica is pure magic. You might have grumpy children, an impatient husband, or impossibly tight, but oh-so-cute boots that are cutting off circulation to your toes, and yet STILL, Jessica captures those priceless, precious moments between you and your loved ones. She snaps that camera lens and then those moments are yours forever to cherish! Her keen eye for gorgeous lighting is just the cherry on top. Somehow she catches beautiful moments that you don’t even remember happening." - Helena H.

"Jessica is great! She always gets my kids to smile and they have fun in the process. Her ideas and set ups are so creative. She is awesome at helping pick out outfits for everyone so that our pictures looks amazing each time. GO with Jessica, you will not be disappointed!!!" - Holly Z.

"We booked a session in the sunflowers with a 2 year old and 7 month old... Should have been a train wreck, right?? Nope. Jessica was amazing with my fussy toddler who started like Velcro. She had a few sessions scheduled but we didn't feel rushed at all. She got great baby smiles and even my photo-hating husband suggested we do a yearly family shoot...with Jessica." - Caroline K.
