happy notes from my clients
“When choosing a family photographer, there are many things we, as moms consider. Price, package choices, quality of photos, the when and where….and the list goes on. One thing that never occurred to me to consider is the quality of the person behind the lens. To say that Jessica is a talented, thoughtful, and dedicated professional, is an understatement. Finding her as a family photographer has been a blessing. From the moment we met her, she made us feel comfortable, loved, and excited to view the portraits that would soon line the walls of our home. She has an incredible eye for capturing the heart of a child and children loving nature and life. We look forward every year to her holiday mini sessions and get excited to add to the walls of our home. In addition to her talent and love for photography, she takes the time to make every family feel special by blogging about her experience. How absolutely sweet and heart touching to read a small paragraph or two about what your family meant to her and how much she enjoyed your time together. Look no further, I can promise you will be so happy to have chosen Jessica as your family photographer.” ~A. Perez
“Jessica, our whole experience with you has been fantastic. You put my three little boys at ease very quickly and have captured so many sweet family moments. You have a special gift of easing stress and creating joy. I can’t begin to thank you enough for sharing that gift with our family! ~L. Bowen
“Jessica, You are the most amazing photographer we have ever been blessed to know. You always manage to capture a unique and perfect shot of Neely! We absolutely love the family pictures you took last year for us at the ranch. They are treasured! Thank you for always being so flexible with our schedule and for taking gorgeous, one-of-a-kind portraits!” ~ L. Dodd
“Jessica has been amazing. She is prompt and super responsive. Working with twin toddlers is definitely not an easy thing to do, but she was patient and did great with them. I had some high expectations going into the session and her work showed that she knew exactly how to capture each of the boys. The outdoor photo shoot went very smoothly. Beautiful photos and a wonderful person to work with.” ~ April S.”My girls know her by name and get excited at the mention of getting their pictures taken. “Are we going to go see Jessica?” The images of my girls were breathtaking. A visual definition of a “sisterly love.” We were referred to her by a friend and it was a wonderful experience. She really knows how to work with the young ones and did such a great job with the girls. The photos capture the girls’ personality to the tee. Everything from unstoppable giggles to the common pout. We look forward to working with her again, especially with a little boy on the way. We can’t wait for her to capture our growing family.” ~ M. Garcia
“The precious moments you gave us are beyond words. I can’t get enough of the pictures I have already seen and I get so emotional just looking at them. The way in which you captured these moments is exactly what we do everyday. We can not thank you enough for the gift you have given us. You are a blessing and true talent!!!We look forward to you photographing “M” in her milestones to come.” ~ Loraine Y.
“I absolutely loved working with Jessica! She is undeniably the best photographer we have worked with. She was able to capture such beautiful pictures even when our little one was not being very cooperative. I loved that she took our suggestions and requests for poses. She was also wonderful about doing a phone interview to ask about our family and what we wanted captured in our photos.” ~Zuleyma D.
“Jessica has photographed my daughter twice, and let me start by saying that I have been so pleased with the final results each time. My daughter is very active and isn’t always cooperative when it comes to having her picture taken. Jessica is very patient and flexible when taking pictures of the little ones that are on the go. She has an amazing eye and always manages to capture images that truly represent my daughter’s personality. Jessica is super creative and individualizes each of her sessions. Take a look at her online galleries, you will not see posed pictures, cheesy backdrops, or the same props used over and over. She has an amazing gift of being able to take pictures of children in their natural state. So, if you’re looking for someone to take creative and unique pictures of your children, then I highly recommend Jessica. I look forward to working with her again now that we have another addition to our family.” ~ Erin N.
My experience with Jessica Idalia Photography was AMAZING. I was very cautious at first because I just googled “Valentine Photo shoot in San Antonio” and came across her website and I’m so glad I did! Even though my daughter isn’t even 2 yet, I’ve had her picture taken by many photographers. Jessica was amazing with her and knows how to work so well with kids to get the best shots. The images I got were top notch and everyone LOVED them. To top it off she does the most awesome packaging for the photo shoot. Ours was for Valentine’s Day and she even took a picture (of my choice) and made goodie bags with sweethearts for all of daughter’s valentine friends. ~ Elizabeth S.
“I thoroughly enjoyed working with Jessica Idalia Photography. We chose a Valentine’s Day mini-session and I could not have been more pleased with the entire experience. The weather was not cooperating and the chilly air could have presented problems, yet Jessica was set up and ready to go. She immediately connected with my 5 year old daughter and held her attention for a quick and productive session. Jessica’s expertise was evident and I found that she was able to capture beautiful moments with my Lauren. The photos were amazing, but special touches on the packaging allowed for beautiful gifts to share with our friends and family. I thoroughly appreciated the professionalism and attention to detail shown to me and my children. I can’t wait for our next session with Jessica Idalia Photography.’~Tamra M.
“Jessica was amazing from her first response to my family photo inquiry with her. Always prompt with her emails and she really put a lot of thought in what we wanted for our family photos. She sent over color swatches of coordinating colors of what we should wear for the props that we were going for. I am a planner myself, so her and I really connected on the pre-planning of our photos. At the photo session, it was relaxed and felt so comfortable during the shoot. My son really took up with her immediately (and he is normally so shy). We LOVED the photos that she took and many of them will be framed and hung in our home. We also hired her to shoot my son’s upcoming birthday and we are so happy to have her a part of photographing important memories in our lives. Thank you Jessica for your beautiful work, energy and love that you put into your photos!” ~ Lindsay B
“Jessica took our family photos this past fall and they were great! I have very active children and she truly captured their spirits! She was wonderful to work with and we enjoyed the photo session. I cannot recommend her more highly!” ~ Sharon J.
“I would highly recommend Jessica Idalia Photography. My son had a wonderful time at his One Year Old photo shoot. Jessica was very patient and works very well with young kids. The photos turned out beautiful and I adore the canvas of one of my favorite shots.”~ Norma E.
