austin, texas maternity and newborn photographer

Hello photography

    have nearly a decade of experience highlighting pregnancy and family through maternity photography and newborn photos. Everything I know about photography and running a business I taught myself how to do. 

Many of the reasons I got started as a baby & pregnancy photographer are very personal. 

Some are obvious -- I love babies. 

I have a special connection to rainbow babies & sunshine babies in particular. Rainbow babies (babies conceived after a miscarriage or infant death) and sunshine babies (babies conceived before a miscarriage) are such a joy. They remind us that pregnancy can be meaningful, beautiful, and hopeful.

I had a miscarriage after I had my son, and I understand how hopeless it can feel after you lose a baby, how scary future pregnancies can feel, and how joyous the birth of a rainbow baby can be. Deacon, my son, is my sunshine baby, and one of my biggest inspirations. 

My studio newborn photography strives to capture all the emotions, hopes, and dreams that come from a new life and the circumstances that led up to your baby’s birth.

Hi, I'm Jen



Say Hello

          s a mother, maternity pictures are also unique to me. 

I was extremely self-conscious about my body when I was pregnant. I never felt as though I was attractive enough to take pictures of my pregnancy with Deacon. I deeply regret that decision, especially when my son Deacon asks about it. He sees pictures of my clients and asks, “where are the pictures of me in your belly?”

To put your fears at ease -- I have never had an unattractive client. 

Every maternity client I have is beautiful and unique, and I want them to look at their maternity photos and see the beauty and strength I see. My goal for my maternity clients is to provide them with photos that make them feel seen the way they want to be seen and provide them with memories of the time they had before they became a parent.

I look forward to hearing from you about your pregnancy and parenting experience when we meet.

A Look into my


1 / 2

Deacon is my number one and the reason why I do what I do.  I started my photography business after working as a probation officer for 10 years.  It started as a hobby  as I was looking for something positive to do in my downtime while spending time with my kiddo and capturing all the moments of him growing up.  Friends started asking me to take photos of their kids, then their families, and then their friends' weddings, maternity, and newborns.  After a couple of years I decided to quit my job and pursue photography full time.

My Favorite Things

2 / 2

Deacon and I adopted Maggie Delicious about 2 years ago from Austin Bulldog Rescue.  Nobody is really sure how old she is- estimates are from 3-9 which is a pretty wide range for a dog!  They could tell she's had a few litters of puppies and she has really nice teeth! 
She is quirky and drools a ton! I had to buy a special mop/vac just to keep up with her slime in the kitchen. She is obsessed with playing fetch and LOVES food.  She wakes me up promptly at 5am each morning for her breakfast!
Deacon LOOOOOVES her to pieces and you can always find them cuddling together.

I loved working with Jen for our daughters newborn photos! Jen is not only kind, patient, and talented, but also so much fun to be around! She was the only photographer I reached out to that was confident in taking newborn photos for our 2 month old daughter!
Jen is a baby whisperer!! My biggest concern was not being able to get the cute sleepy newborn photos cause my daughter was a bit older, but wow-o-wow was I wrong! Jen is unbelievably talented and experienced working with newborns, and was able to get baby girl to fall asleep for every photo! I even implemented some of the techniques she used in the studio in my daily life to get baby girl to nap! I truly had no idea how much effort goes into getting a cute newborn photo! I was amazed when she spent ~45 minutes getting my baby to fall asleep, and patiently move my sweet girl into the froggy pose!!
We had a blast at our newborn photoshoot and couldn't recommend Jen more! We will 100% be going back to her in the future :)

Jen made the whole experience of maternity and newborn photoshoot very comfortable and relaxed. Her work is amazing and gave us lifelong treasured memories. She is very good at handling babies and meet all the expectations you have by discussing even smallest details before the photoshoot. I already want to take cake smash photos of lil one with Jen in future. She is best in town😀  ~Vineela

We loved working with Jen for both our maternity and newborn photos! For the maternity photos, she made both my husband and I feel at ease by telling us exactly how to pose, making the experience lighthearted, and personalizing the photos to our fertility/pregnancy journey. Our newborn session was such an enjoyable experience! It was so relaxing for us as parents and for our baby. Jen was so patient while posing our baby and she completely understood the type of photos and colors I wanted. We’ve already recommended Jen to others in our network and look forward to working with her again in the future.  ~Alyssa

Jen is amazing! I booked my maternity photos with her and they turned out so beautiful. She was so accommodating and made my husband and I feel so comfortable during the photo shoot. We aren't naturals in front of the camera but her tips made us look like we were :) Such a great photographer with a wonderful personality. ~Valeria

Jen does an absolutely phenomenal job! We did newborn and family photos with her and she does an incredible job capturing the magic of the newborn stage ☺️ She is very attention to detail and will take the time and effort to capture the best angles and poses. She has a variety of adorable newborn props that you can pick from. Her studio is very relaxing and overall it’s a very stress-free experience! I would absolutely pick her again for any future professional photos we get for our family.

Jen is an amazing photographer. We are so glad that we chose her for capturing our precious and biggest moment of our life . She is very hardworking and professional. Each and every picture she took was magical experience for us . She always kept us in the loop with appointments , locations and also did a quick turnaround on all the final images. She is really caring ,fun and made us and our baby very comfortable during and after the photoshoots. She also has an amazing closet for newborn and maternity. I would highly recommend Jen for anyone who wants to have an awesome experience while capturing their best moments. We look forward to working with her again ❤️ ~Roja

I can't recommend Jen enough! Since the very beginning, she was incredibly committed to making our photo session a success! I loved every minute of working with Jen. She quickly understood what I was looking for, offered a range of possibilities, ideas, locations, etc. She was recommended under the 'once you met Jen, there's no way back' premise, and I now totally understand. Extremely professional, no wasted time and results that will blow your mind... plus, she's just a delight to work with! SO HAPPY I FOUND YOU! ~Andrea

This is my first time being pregnant and also experiencing a maternity photo session. I’m still in awe of my beyond gorgeous maternity photos!!!! Jen ultimately made me feel very comfortable. She even got waist deep in water getting the perfect angles of my BEAUTIFUL shots, if that’s not dedication then I’m not sure what is! I wanted a beautiful water feature & she surely gave me exactly what I wanted and MORE!!! Very professional & got my pictures back to me in a short amount of time with editing... even due to her busy schedule. She is very dedicated to her work & I recommend anyone to trusting her photography skills. She is beyond exceptional! ~Aaliyah

Jen is an amazing photographer! She is also an awesome person to work with. She is very responsive, friendly, patient, and open minded. The whole process from booking the photoshoot to getting my final pictures was very smooth and enjoyable. During the shoot, her easy-going personality made me feel comfortable trying different settings and shots. The maternity photos we received came out fantastic and I’m so happy Jen was able to capture the beauty of my pregnancy. The turnaround time to getting the final photos was very fast too. I highly recommend Jen if you are looking for a quality, professional, fun, and down to earth photographer! ~Sovattey

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!! ~Nicole

Exceptional photography and customer service. She made me completely comfortable for all of my shots. I was nervous about the end results because I'm such a picky person when it comes to myself but I was more than pleased with my photos. ~Xiomara

Jen was amazing! So responsive to our questions. Worked so well with all of our ideas and captured are sweet little girl perfectly. She is a baby whisperer and so very caring. Our photos turned out perfect we loved every single shot. ~Malari

Jen has been taking our family photos since our first daughter was born 4 years ago. She she is fantastic with our children and always captures the most beautiful moments. I had her do a newborn session with my youngest daughter and she was so skilled with posing her and getting the sweetest pictures. I wouldn’t use anyone else for our photos!! She is simply the best. ~Jordan-Anne
