I LOVE seeing this beautiful family every year. I can't believe how big the boys have gotten. man, time just flies!!

okay, honesty time! :) I am SO EXHAUSTED during this season. if you're a photographer you know exactly how I am feeling. :)

with that being said... I want you all to know that I leave every single session with a huge smile on my face. a feeling of complete JOY. a feeling of such great fulfillment. as hard as it is leaving my family in the evenings I enjoy being with your families SO MUCH. I enjoy making you laugh. I enjoy catching up from the year past. I enjoy the distraction from this crazy world.

life isn't easy these days and this job has been such a saving grace for me.

it was almost a year since I last saw this pretty little lady. LOVE seeing how much they grow. mama requested a 'strawberry' cake smash session & happened to mention miss Ivy has a new BFF that they could bring along. UM YES PLEASE! 🐶

bring me alllll the babies and allllll the puppies!! what in the world is better than that?! NOTHING! aboslutely nothing!!! haha!

this was such a fun morning! she loved her cake but honestly she LOVED her new bestie more! Happy Birthday, beautiful girl! XO 🎉

cake smash sessions are becoming my favorite sessions to shoot. Lupe' Hudak & I love coming up with the creative backgrounds and taking all the stress off of mom & dad. 😍

Julia | 9 days fresh

I was SO impressed with big sister. another two year old that laid next to to her sibling and didn't move. that's super brave! this is not normal haha!

I loved all the colors and setups mama wanted. it was so lovely to meet this awesome family.

Alex | 9 days fresh.

hey FB! meet my newest little friend, Alex. he came to see me last week was quite the gentleman. I was so excited to see this family again! big sister was SO proud of her brother and kept kissing and loving on him. it was the sweetest thing to see.

Alex didn't mind any of the setups. he looked amazing in everything and smelled like heaven.

which image is your favorite? I am obsessed with the sibling shots. it's not everyday you get a two year old sibling to lay still with their new baby. :) she did so great! I loved Alex in the blue & is that a little smirk I see?

**NEW**

hosted by my associate photographer, Jamie!

✨Sunday, September 26th AM & PM sessions available✨ (a weekday evening will be added if we book these out)

Help support such an amazing cause!! ❤️

Love for Lucas child portrait sessions are held each year to benefit The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) in memory of Lucas Christensen and all CHD warriors. This year these portraits will be held at my studio. A large portion of the proceeds will go directly to CHOP.

Lucas was born in October 2010, with a congenital heart defect. CHOP and their amazing team and resources helped baby Lucas be able to spend 17 days with his parents. Jamie went to college with Luca's mom Gina. When Lucas passed, and years passed, the thoughts of who Lucas might be and what his favorite color could be flooded into her heart. That is when the Love for Lucas and the crayola donations to CHOP began.

If you are interested in these sessions please email [email protected] for all information.

✨a recent review from a newborn workshop✨

“I met Jessica when she did my daughter’s newborn photos back in 2017. I was so inspired by her story, I immediately went home and dusted off my camera and started practicing. Fast forward 4 years, I’ve taken multiple online courses and started my very own photography business. It was one of my biggest business goals to have in person training, especially with newborns. When I saw Jessica was offering newborn workshops in her studio, I knew it was exactly what I needed to continue to learn and grow in this market.
It was everything I could have dreamed of, and then some. She taught me lighting, setups, wraps, shooting and editing techniques. I was able to ask all of the questions I’ve had and get extra tips that you would never get from an online course. The training didn’t end there, she still answers questions and provides guidance even after the workshop. My goal is to open a studio of my own one day, but the price tag of the props and equipment can be overwhelming. Jessica also rents out her studio to other photographers, which allows me, and others in my position, to get practice and experience with a real studio, while working towards opening a space of my own in the future. I left her studio beyond grateful, head spinning with ideas and with a full heart. It was a dream to learn along side her and her workshop completely changed my business.”

I encourage everyone to step out of their comfort zone and try new things! we grow the best outside of that comfy complacent place 😬. -Jess
