My name is Jessica and I am a portrait photographer specializing in newborns, children, and maternity. I am a native New Yorker, currently residing in Brooklyn. I’m married to the love of my life who is my biggest support system and always tells me to do what you love. I couldn’t be happier with the decisions I have made in changing careers. Working in the fashion industry in retail buying for 7 years only showed me how important it is to chase your dreams and do what you love. Sometimes we must take small jumps to make the final leap. I love reading especially anything fantasy. Harry Potter is an all time fav! I love tea even though some mornings I need my coffee fix. I love the color black even though lately I have been trying to broaden my color options (does grey count? ha!) If I could do one thing and one thing only it would be to travel the world. In the last decade, I have visited 4 out of the 7 continents with the latest being a trip to Japan. I hate exercising but I’m totally hooked on Soul Cycle. Life isn’t about remembering days but about remembering moments. I look forward to capturing those special memories that you can hold onto forever.

Such a beautiful time for our new family and Jessica captured it perfectly! I now have these gorgeous photos to have in my home forever.

Jessica did my first daughters newborn pictures in 2015. Being a first time mom, those first days are all a haze. It was such a relief to have her and her assistant come in and not only take beautiful pictures, but to have the whole experience be calm and relaxing. When my second daughter was born this past May I was excited to have her do it again! Not only did she do a wonderful job with my squirming newborn but she extended her talents to capture some amazing pics with my rambunctious 20 month old. You can never go back and relive those first days with your baby. These newborn pictures are a once in a lifetime thing.

Trusting someone with my newborn and maternity photos is not something I take lightly. I was recommended Jessica by a friend and she exceeded my expectations in every aspect. Not only did the photos turn out absolutely amazing but she is so fun to work with and put me at ease through each shoot. She handled my fussy newborn with such care and ease for his photo session which really reflected in the photos. Her assistants were great as well. She was quick to send me the proofs which I was dying to see, so that was a big plus. Very efficient and overall a joy to work with! I highly recommend her for newborn and maternity photos!

We absolutely loved working with Jessica and would recommend her without any hesitation. Jessica captured the most precious newborn photos of our son when he was just 10 days old. The entire experience working with her was seamless. She was extremely flexible, recognizing that we did not know exactly when the baby would be born. She also came to our apartment for the photo shoot, something I really appreciated with a newborn. She was very patient and did not make us feel rushed at all throughout the whole photo shoot. Our baby was quite wiggly and uncooperative at times and Jessica took her time to make sure she captured the perfect picture. And finally, the quality of the photos were EXCELLENT. We loved her classic, elegant style. We were so happy with the final product and look forward to using Jessica again for future family photos!
