"Jessica is a phenomenal photographer with an obvious spirit for catching the best moments in life! She has photographed our family for over two years now, capturing our ever-changing, ever-growing children. Not only are the results breathtaking, but Jessica ensures the experience of taking the photos to be as pleasant as possible. Because she is a mother, her ability to make the kids laugh and feel comfortable is unmatched! My husband and I have always appreciated her approach to photographing our family — get a few posed shots but capture the natural interaction among family members and even the curiosity of the children and what’s around them.

I appreciate Jessica’s use of natural light and surroundings to create an ideal studio for our photos. Her artistic approach to photography has resulted in a combination of art and my children for the walls of my home. And her editing abilities help bring out the best in each photo. I always have a hard time narrowing down the photos to the few spots on my walls and the small group of photos sent to family and friends.

I highly recommend Jessica to capture that growth spurt, that high school senior excitement, that lovely bride, that furry best friend — anything! You won’t be disappointed!"

"If anyone is looking for a great photographer, Jessica G Photography & Design did an amazing job on my maternity photos. She has a beautiful gift and a sweet spirit that make her an absolute joy to work with."



"I’ve known Jess for years and have always been in awe of her captivating Nature Photography (and envious of all her adventurous travels). I’m thrilled she has finally put her years of experience into capturing life’s special moments for families to treasure forever. She recently photographed our third child’s newborn portraits. Jess was awesome during the shoot while my other two were being “extra” rambunctious and still adjusting to baby. Her calm and gentle approach helped me to remain at ease and enjoy the experience. She took time to let my oldest, dress up how she wanted and put on her own “mini shoot” which included a fancy dress and no less than 20 bows in her hair... Jess truly has a gift for encouraging natural interactions so the personalities shine through.

With her equipment, knowledge, use of the lighting, and her amazing editing skills, she created results more beautiful than I could have ever imagined."
