Storytelling each joyful season of parenthood with emotion-driven portraiture and beautiful family heirlooms
Year after year, I have found that the key to joyful and honest photography means allowing children to play, paying special attention to those heartwarming details and encouraging parents to relax and soak up this time with their little ones.
At every portrait session, I am creating an artistic extension of your family memories, so you can remember these days and your children, just as they are.
My first and most important roles will always be as a mama to my 3 children, and wife to my high school sweetheart. I'm sure you can see how I am no stranger to how fast the years go by, and how quickly children grow.
As we curate a session that incorporates all of the wonderful and unique aspects that makes your family yours, I take such pride in knowing you will have these photographs to cherish as your children grow.
The excitement + anticipation of pregnancy, those sleepy snuggles of the newborn stage, busy exploration of toddlerhood,
and everything in between.
"I had such a great experience
with Jess. I love our newborn family photos and will be booking her again in the future!"
Let's imagine ten, or even twenty years down the road. How will your family look back on the memories of their early years?
Your laptop, camera roll and USB drive will not stand the test of time and I would be heartbroken to think that your images could be lost on those devices.
With one-of-a-kind heirloom design, your family's milestones will be beautifully preserved so that you can enjoy them daily, and pass them down generation to generation. Ensuring your memories are safe and tangible is so important to me.
your memories don't belong on a hard drive
"Jess takes the most incredible pictures and makes it look easy!"
Beyond amazing. Jess has taken pictures of our family twice now and somehow manages to capture the best pictures of us all! Even with an ornery toddler and unpredictable newborn, Jess takes the most incredible pictures and makes it look easy!"
“She became more than just our photographer but also a dear friend.”
One thing we NEVER stressed about was our photographer. Besides taking phenomenal pictures she was so easy going, friendly and thoughtful. Often times checking in with me just to see how we were doing and how things were coming along. She became more than just our photographer but also a dear friend.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
Being a Maryland newborn photographer when it's spring and summer is extra special. Outdoor newborn season is always such a favorite of mine! This sweet family traveled from Baltimore to have their little guy's newborn photos taken in historic St. Michaels, and it was absolutely perfect.
