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.

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

Life

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 just over a year 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!  Definitely has had a lot of puppies.  
She is quirky- drools a ton- I had to buy a special mop/vac just to keep up with her slime in the kitchen. Loves to play fetch, growls when she wants something but is as sweet as can be.
Deacon LOOOOOVES her.  They are always cuddling.

I love Jen! She’s done our maternity, newborn, and holiday photos, and they’ve all turned out amazing! Her turnaround is quick, and she’s very responsive to any questions! Hopefully she likes us because we will be using her for many photoshoots to come! -- Kelsi

About My Professional Photography Scope

My shoot was in the woods, with snow all around -- and it was absolutely stunning. Thirty-six weeks pregnant with baby #3, I wasn’t exactly feeling like a model, but she made me feel (and look) amazing. Her work is truly beautiful... I can’t speak highly enough of her! She was so easy to get along with and made me feel so comfortable. -- Sheralyn

About My Maternity Photography

Working with Jen for our Newborn session was amazing! [She] was responsive, professional yet very friendly, and gave us great information prior to our session so we would be prepared. [She] takes her cues from the little one so she can capture the best possible moments for you! She’s so patient...and it’s clear she genuinely loves what she does! -- Nicole
