I have a very small preview of Rowan's beautiful birthday. She was born covered in amazing birthday frosting and was the sweetest, quietest, most serene baby I have seen in a long time. I can't wait until I am able to share her whole birth story with the world! She was born with a True Knot in her Umbilical cord! Thank you so much Jonea and Josh for letting me be there with you for this amazing night!

Like I have said before, I LOVE everything related to birth photography, including maternity and in home newborn sessions. I truly love lifestyle newborn sessions. There is just something magical about those first few days at home with a new little one. The Randall family invited me into their home two weeks after little Ireland was born, brother and sister are still getting into the swing of having a new sibling and little Ireland was seriously as sweet as could be. Thank you so much Randall Family for letting me be part of this wonderful time in your lives!
I love nursing sessions.. Heck I love feeding sessions in general. Watching a family member nourish their baby is such an amazing thing. Kiersten is an amazing mama who is currently nursing her 1 and 3 year old. We only had about 20 minutes of shooting time in the orchard this evening, the mosquitoes were unbearable, I left the orchard with over 30 bites all over the place. I am so honored that Kiersten asked me to take these shots for her to commemorate her nursing. She is one client/friend I am going to miss terribly once I move to Colorado. She has been with me since the very beginning and when I look back on her first set of images I took I can definitely see how much growth there has been within myself and my photography. I am so proud to have those images to look back on. We all start somewhere and I am so glad that she has stuck by me through the years.
To book your feeding session with me please email Hello@photoartbyjessica.com. I would really enjoy adding a few more sessions to my portfolio. These sessions are not limited to nursing, I would be honored to photograph you bottle feeding you child or even pumping for your child.
You might remember my last birth back in May, when little Norah graced us with her presence a few weeks early. She spent about a week in the NICU before she was allowed to come home and ever since then she has been growing like a weed! She is so sweet and I definitely got my share of baby snuggles in during our in home Newborn and Family Session. In home Documentary sessions are my favorite type of family session. I love documenting and telling your story.
For a long time I struggled with photographing newborns.. In my head I always thought I had to have a studio, special lighting, props and provide these images of your baby perfectly posed. I quickly learned that I didn't have the drive for that type of work but I wanted to be able to photograph newborns. I figured why would I have to go about photographing newborns any differently than I would any other subject. I am always so honored when families invite me into their homes just days after they've added a new baby. I absolutely adore spending an hour or two watching these families interact and love on their new one.
The Westbrook family has let me photograph them several times over the past year and they recently welcomed me into their home when they brought baby Zane home. Big sister Stella was home and loved on me for almost the entire two hours I was there. Zane is absolutely precious and I hope I get to photograph him as he grows up!
