Stress-free experience 

The motherhood Experience

The moments you want to remember with your little ones

All you have to do is come in and relax! You don't need to worry about everything. I have everything set up when you arrive. My team and I will have you feeling your best.

The first step to finding if we are the best fit is filling out my contact form! From here I will explain the whole session process and everything I have to offer to you. I love providing everything for each of your sessions. My goal is to make your life as stress-free as possible : ) 

1. Say Hello

Once you've heard the amazing experience you're going to have and how everything works. Now is your turn to tell me your dream session. Is your little one you're last and your wanting to capture the sweet connection you have at this time? Has your baby reached a special milestone that you would love to remember every detail of? There are so many reasons and some times you don't even need one. It could just be you love pictures. I'm excited to hear about you and your little ones! 

2. Schedule it

Once your session fee is paid you will be sent your "Welcome Email." This email has all the details for your session including a copy of the investment guide, questionnaire, and contract. Your questionnaire is where you can let me know all your colors, anything I should know, and what you would like to see at your dream session. Once I have received your questionnaire forms we will schedule a date depending on the milestone your child is reaching or any day for motherhood.

3. Planning it

Motherhood- You will start by getting pampered in hair and makeup.   Then we will move to the studio to capture some beautiful and emotional portraits  with your child. These sessions are all about playing and being silly, but also capturing the in between moments that we all want to remember. I love getting a few traditional l smiling at the camera portraits as well as a good variety of candids for you to treasure. 
Milestones- These are done when your baby are 3 months and/or when they are sitting unassisted. These sessions are to capture the milestone your child is reaching in that specifc month. We will do 3 setups to capture their milestone and their cute personality  developing. At 1 year sessions we can just do a plan milestone session or this can be a simple cake smash. We will do before portraits, the cake smash, and end in a mini claw foot tub for a splash session.  

4. Your Session

Your session is done and now you can't wait to see your beautiful gallery! We will schedule a reveal appointment fo you to come in and see all your beautiful images . We will start with a slideshow of all the images and then you will be able to choose your favorites! It can be an emotional process for everyone in the room. I love watching my client 's sweet reaction. You may even cry and that's okay tissues are on stand by haha. I even get choked up sometimes !

 "If you are looking for a newborn photographer, I highly recommend Jaclyn. Baby whisperer at its finest and even better, toddler approved! The way she was able to capture our newborn AND our sassy little 18-month-old was truly incredible. Certainly a memory I will never forget. She went with the girl's flow and their own pace and made everyone feel right at home. She’s professional and her work is beyond incredible! We were so amazed and in awe of our gallery from our shoot that day. Thank you Jaclyn for capturing these moments that will last a lifetime. This experience was merely perfect and we cannot wait to schedule more appointments! We are forever grateful that found Jaclyn!"

It is easy to see that Jaclyn is an amazing photographer. All you have to do is look at the photos she has taken and you can see that. What the photos don’t show you, however, is her amazing personality. She is very welcoming and is a magical baby whisperer. She had our little girl happy and comfortable for two hours during the shoot. Not only is she great with babies, but she was patient and so sweet to our six year old. She let him help pick out headbands, asked his opinion about poses, and answered all 5,000 questions he had with a smile on her face. She made us feel comfortable and accommodated all picture requests we had. Her home studio felt welcoming and she made us all really comfortable.

newborn session


We had our newborn session with Jaclyn and couldn’t be more impressed! She was so well prepared, taking time to ensure that all the different set ups were complimentary and unique to our little guys skin tone, baby room, theme, etc. She is incredibly sweet and patient, even with a fussy lil guy that was much more interested in watching her than sleeping. She was genuinely kind and reassuring, supportive of nursing him or giving him a break whenever he needed it. Not to mention she’s such an easy going person. I loved being able to chat with her throughout the session.
You can tell she’s passionate about her work as she takes time to work out all the details of her props, set ups, poses, etc. we enjoyed this session and we can’t wait to work with her again!

I have been with Jaclyn since December of 2017 and only wish that I had been with her longer. She is one of the most amazing, talented, kindest, and patient professional/friend that you will come across. She is responsive to any questions you have and has the best checklist before coming. Then she provides everything that you could need (hair, makeup, outfits) and tailors your session to make it unique. Babies have a mind of their own so sessions won’t always go how you think they will but she is so accommodating to feeding, snack breaks or just a break in general to recoup. She makes sure that you love your pictures and has a way to make you feel beautiful inside and out! Any service that Jaclyn provides, I guarantee that you will not regret it and you will be so glad that you did.

1 year baby plan 


Jaclyn did an incredible job capturing our newborn photos. She went above and beyond. As newborns go, our 2 hour session became a 4 hour one when our son didn’t want to cooperate. She was patient and kind and did what it took to capture a beautiful moment for us. HIGHLY recommend!

newborn and 1 year session 


Jaclyn is like the baby whisperer! She took so much time during our newborn session to make sure we got all the shots we wanted. It was relaxed and comfortable during the session. She has an extensive array of backdrops, wraps, props, and newborn outfits. She handles all my annoying questions with grace. I am so happy with the final results! Highly recommend!

Belly to baby 


Jaclyn was calm, cool, and collected when we arrived with our very disgruntled one-year old! We were panicked that we wouldn't get any good photos and it couldn't have been more opposite. Jaclyn was so patient with our sweet girl (and us!) and I actually LOVED the shots she got in the beginning when she was still teary and timid. Then it was fun and chaos with the cake smash and bath session! Jaclyn had great ideas and captured our girl so well. THANK YOU!

1 year session


Where to start? Jaclyn is awesome. We came to her for newborn photos. Super professional. Entered her studio and it shows she’s prepared for new born photos, with a warm studio comforting for a naked newborn. She is super patient and very attentive to detail. We were amazed by the photos we received. I would recommend her to anyone looking for newborn photos. Unfortunately for her, our son gave her a good spray of his pee and she was so graceful about it and wasn’t even phased.
