Jessica is truly a gift to our family. I wanted every moment to captured with my baby, so I signed up for her Bump To Baby membership. She has made every single session so fun and easy. She makes my whole family feel comfortable at every session. We are always laughing and loving each other. We can honestly say we count down the days until we see her again. It’s so much fun! Even my husband says he enjoys the sessions! The photos she delivers are absolutely beautiful, and the album and prints she offers are of outstanding quality. The best thing I ever did this pregnancy was found, Jessica.

If you have any hesitation about booking with Jessica, don’t! Let me tell you… it was an amazing experience from start to finish! I didn’t have to worry about what me and my family would wear, she took care of all of it. And during the actual photoshoot she was amazing. Quick but calm and did such a great job of soothing both of my girls when they got fussy from time to time (we have a newborn and a 2 year old). Lastly, the photos turned out absolutely beautiful and we will cherish them forever!

Jessica’s Bump To Baby membership has been a highlight of this past year celebrating our baby girl.  She has made every single session so easy, fun, relaxing, unique, and meaningful. She took over all the details, so I didn’t have to worry about a thing. The way she guides her sessions always makes me feel so beautiful, confident and loved by my family. because it is true to who are family is.  Even my husband was having fun. The best thing I ever did this pregnancy was found Jessica.

Jessica was amazing!!! Plain and simple. My husband and I did a maternity session with her and it was everything we wanted. She led and guided us with ease and comfort . We felt so comfortable with her and it brought out the best in our pictures. My husband and I wound up giggling and smiling naturally for most of the session, and it felt so easy to do around her. Our pictures turned out the best they possibly could! Her process, choosing our favorites, and the session itself was extremely professional yet comfortable and easy to navigate. Husbands usually/typically don't get as excited as we ladies do, but my husband even enjoyed taking the pictures! We couldn't be more pleased!

Jessica is such a fantastic photographer to work with! She helps capture the sweet moments of you just being together with your loved ones but turns them into gorgeous photos. She is so great with babies and capturing those split-second smiles! Her work is beautiful and she is quick to return the galleries. She even helps with outfit suggestions!

I highly recommend working with Jessica at XO Photography! She recently took our pictures, and I’m so impressed with how easy the entire process was and how beautiful our pictures turned out. Jessica was beyond helpful with every little detail, including outfit choices, recommending the perfect location, and guiding us throughout the shoot. You won’t be disappointed if you use her!

I can't recommend XO Photography enough. She came to my house for our newborn photo shoot. Everything about the experience was calm, serene, and relaxed-- which is what every new mom needs in a photographer. Jessica was so kind and extremely knowledgeable. She patiently helped us find the right pose and even convinced our toddler to smile while looking at his new baby sister. Her pics were beautiful and captured the newborn stage better than I could have imagined. 10/10 would recommend.
