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.

Kelsey & Derek

I was amazed by Jessica! Her pictures speak for themselves but she was so kind, patient, and complimentary! Having three kids under the age of 5 it’s not easy to keep them interested and entertained but she had them smiling the whole time!  Jessica also was amazing at communication with styling of outfits and delivery of images! I can’t wait to have another session with her!

Jessica did an amazing job shooting our photos. I really appreciate how she was able to capture so many beautiful pictures quickly and efficiently - this helps when you have a toddler and a 4 month old! You won’t regret hiring her!

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!

Ashley & Joey

Jessica showed the patience, kindness, and creativity we needed! In the time we had, she was able to capture the love, fun, and smiles of each family member. She does an amazing job at capturing candid moments, which are my personal favorite. She allowed my child to play and be himself and worked with us to make real life into photos that we can treasure forever. I am so grateful she was able to capture us so well and deliver such beautiful pictures. She is truly talented!

We adored our session with Jessica! We received our images in less than two weeks, she provided an excellent client closet, and was so easy to communicate with! Jessica was professional and kind, making us feel at ease during the session. Her organization and communication made the experience flawless. She captured precious moments of our family that we will cherish forever. I highly recommend her to capture memories of your family!

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!
