Meet Jess

My name is jessica and I am a natural light child photographer in San Antonio, Texas.  I love capturing those little moments in a child’s life that are so worth remembering, and I feel blessed to have met so many wonderful families through this photography journey that I am on.

Before we meet… I should tell you a bit about myself…

  •  I live, work, and SHOP in San Antonio, Texas.
  •  I have a 14 year old son who loves dogs, dogs, dogs!
  • I love to write… notes, journaling, lists! lists! and more lists!
  • I am an educator by day.. and have been for 17 years.
  • When I write, text or type, I love to use ellipsis  (those 3 little dots after the last word).
  • Midnight snacks, both sweet and salty, are mandatory!
  • Country music always plays loudly  as I sit down to edit a session.
  • Learning something new is always exciting and sharing what I learned is even more gratifying.
  • Photography is my creative outlet… and I am constantly looking for new ideas.
  • You will never hear me say “cheese” to get a smile… not real enough for me!
  • I get excited when I capture sweet, meaningful, real interactions between people in front of my camera lens.


I love the simple things in life… and you see that through my art.  Childhood is simple, magical, and full of innocence, and I can’t wait to capture that for you and your family.  I hope to make my clients’ photography experience a relaxed and unforgettable one!  I can’t wait to capture life’s little moments… for you!
