Investment Details

If you have any hesitation about booking with Jessica, don’t! I was hesitant because professional photos aren’t really my thing but 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!

I cannot say enough great things about Jessica’s talent! We did a newborn session 72 hours after birth and she managed to make me feel super comfortable with taking photos that soon. Her work is incredible and she had a fantastic turn around delivery time. Thank you Jessica!

Jessica was amazing! She helped so much with keeping my son calm when he would get upset, and she was such a fun and warm hearted person to work with! The pictures turned out beautiful and I got then back faster than expected! I would recommend her to anyone needing pictures!

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.

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.

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!

Kristen & Craig

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.
