DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY

 
 
 
 
 

I'm Jessica, a Australian Photographer now based in Huntington Beach specialising in Maternity and Newborns. My purpose is to create truly individual works of art that capture the most important times in your life. Newborns only stay so tiny for just a few days, and in the blink of an eye, you'll all of a sudden become the Tooth Fairy!! I not only offer beautiful images, but also an authentic, heartfelt experience - from the moment you book, to when you see your images for the first time. 

I truly want to create an amazing experience for you and your family. While I work my magic you can sit back, have a coffee and take some time to relax and enjoy.

ABOUT ME

I was born in Minnesota USA , grew up in Australia and have just relocated to Huntington Beach for the love of my life!!  I have a ridiculous case of wanderlust. Nothing makes me happier than travelling to foreign lands, exploring new cultures, meeting new people and of course photographing the entire experience. I have an Adv. Dip of Commercial Photography, majoring in Architectural Photography (not that different to newborns?!). I have been photographing newborns for the past 6 years now and, to be quite honest, I'm pretty over photographing them in bowls and beanies. Yes, it was nice in the beginning. It's what everyone wanted right? But it wasn't true to my style and anyone who knows me will tell you that my number one value is AUTHENTICITY and for 6 years the images I was taking were not aligned with my values or talent, hence I lost my passion and love for photography. But now, with a sea change comes the perfect opportunity to ditch the posed photos and getting back to the raw, real emotions of documentary lifestyle photography. This also means, minimal editing! I'm just as over the bs of false advertising as I am beanies. Don't get me wrong, a little nip and tuck and a colour boost is just realistic. But I just want to capture the reality of your family and give you honest images for you to cherish for the rest of your life. 

So if you'd like REAL images of your beautiful family, I'm your girl. x

WE WERE SO THRILLED

WHEN WE SAW OUR PHOTOGRAPHS

We were provided with a Barebambino gift voucher at our baby shower for our first child.  We were so glad to have received this gift as Jess captured those precious newborn moments perfectly. Jess came to our home to take the photographs and she was so wonderful and professional to work with, taking time to capture the perfect shots for our family. We were so thrilled when we saw our photographs, we have since booked Jess for our second daughter’s newborn shoot along with both girls’ Christening photos.Jess’ beautiful photos have been framed and take pride of place in our home.
