As a parent, I know how amazing it is to see your child grow-- their growing smile, personalities and looks. Your baby's first year is likely a hazy blur as you see them grow, change and learn so many new things right before your eyes. 

As a Springfield MO baby photographer, I love capturing kids milestone sessions so you can see your baby's first year and remember just how special this time is with your little one.

Investment Details

If you have any hesitation about booking with Jessica, don’t! I  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!

Amanda & Mitchell

Our family had newborn family photos done by Jessica. Jessica made it completely effortless on our end. All we had to do was show up. She provided outfits for my entire family including my husband. Jessica is so patient and kind. The time spent taking photos was so quick and she did great with our girls.

Jessica has captured precious moments and milestones of my family twice now, and I am so pleased to say we will continue to use her as our family grows over the years! Jessica is a baby whisperer and has all of the magic touches to get the perfect smiles and coos out of little ones! She is so kind and always has such a positive approach that naturally lightens up the room and makes for a fun session! Jessica takes the most beautiful photos! We used our photos of our newborn son and family photos to give expression throughout our home! We are so grateful for them! Thank you Jessica!

I can't recommend XO Photography enough. 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 with our toddler and his new baby sister. Her pics were beautiful and captured the newborn stage better than I could have imagined. 10/10 would recommend.

newborn and family Sessions

Emma & Dan

Jessica was so much fun to work with and has done so many sessions for my family. I really liked how she always made the sessions feel more personal. She had me answer a questionnaire before each session to answer questions about our family and used those to guide our session which made everything memorable and easy. Going back to these photos doesn't make me just remember the session, it brings me back those memories I did with my family every day.

Jessica is such an AMAZING photographer. I joined her bump to baby membership during my first pregnancy. I was so nervous and overwhelmed with so many new changes. Jessica has been a Godsend. She took over all the details for each session, helped me find the best outfits for my family, and found the gorgeous locations. It was reassuring to have such a sweet, caring, and helpful photographer capture each milestone for our growing family beautifully. Each gallery has brought me to happy tears as she captures my tiny family so well in a way that is us! I can’t tell you how much joy our photos in the nursery bring to me.

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.
