AUSTIN maternity and newborn PHOTOGRAPHER


I'm Jen, the lady behind the lens at Hello Photography.  I'm so happy that you're here and I promise you're in the right place!

I've been a full-time Austin Photographer for over 5 years.  I reside in the Cedar Park area with my 7 year old son, Deacon.  He's the one that inspired me to pick up a camera in the first place.  I'll always love taking silly photos of him, but my heart has a special place for mommas with baby bellies and beautiful, squishy, new babies. 

Over the past 5 years, I've photographed hundreds of clients whom I am proud to call my friends.  To have been doing this work long enough that I now see my clients get married, start families and watch their children grow is truly amazing. It makes my heart so happy to see those little babies grow through different stages of their lives.

I truly love what I do and I treat every baby as if it were my own.  I am here for you and happy to answer any questions.  I am so excited to hear from you and learn more about how I can help you!

I truly love and cherish each and every client big and small and all of the tiny little details and emotions that come along with them.  Every woman's story is unique and their journey to motherhood is a special story that should be celebrated.  I'm looking forward to hearing from you and chat about your growing family.

Whether this is your first baby or your third, I know you're excited to meet your little one! Your journey 

As a mom, I can tell you that this time goes by so quickly.  Before you know it, your tiny baby will be putting on their own shoes and heading off to kindergarten.  You'll be packing up newborn onesies and booties and wondering where the time went. Having special photos to capture those precious newborn days is an investment you will treasure in the years to come.

During my time as a professional photographer, I have worked with a lot of different families and handled so many sweet new babies.  I know I can create lasting memories for you and your family and you'll be in good hands throughout the process. Also, you're going to have a heck of a lot of fun along the way!

As you click around my website, let me know if you have any questions about anything at all.  I really am here to help.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND - Working with Jen for our Newborn session was amazing! From the beginning she was responsive, professional yet very friendly, and gave us great information prior to our session so we would be prepared. She has a great workflow for the session but takes her cues from the little one so she can capture the best possible moments for you! She's so patient with the babies and it's clear she genuinely loves what she does! She's really creative with her shots and is willing to work in anything that you might want (ours was military stuff)! The photos we received are incredible and we had a very hard time picking out our favorites because they were all so wonderful! She's worth every. single. penny!! We'll be using her for our son's first birthday smash cake session and our next little one as well!!

"She's worth every. single. penny!!"

Two things I love the most about Jen: she goes above and beyond with her service and creativity & she makes you feel 100% comfortable during the shoot. I had maternity photographs taken and I had a very specific vision: dark and moody with a gray background and natural materials. Jen executed it brilliantly - and we even had a chance to photograph a second look using gold leaf. The whole experience was excellent from start to finish. You should definitely choose Jen for your maternity photos - and don't be afraid to let her lean into her creativity! She's got such an eye for crafting great photos!!! I love her!

Jen is amazing! She has captured our family of 5 and when we grew to a family of 6 just a week later with the addition of our foster daughter that we hope is soon to become a permanent addition, Jen was also there to mark her newborn phase with an incredible newborn session. Jen is hard-working and patient beyond words! As we go through this foster to adopt journey, our hope is that Jen will walk beside us capturing each special milestone til we prayerfully and hopefully make Tatum an official part of our family. Thank you Jen!
