"This was my first ever photo shoot and Jessica made the whole experience amazing! She definitely made it all about me but also included my family. She made me feel so comfortable and also made me feel like a model! If you’re ever in the area, I highly recommend her! She’s the best!"

"As a first time mom, I wanted to have pictures taken to capture our nursing journey together. Breastfeeding is such an intimate bond between mom and baby and Jess captured that intimacy beautifully during our session. She was super down to earth and easy to talk to which made the session feel comfortable and natural. If you’re on the fence about doing a nursing session, don’t be! This is your sign to book it with Jess, you won’t regret it. I will treasure these pictures forever!"


"I cannot recommend Jes enough, the photos she captured for my family are beyond what I could have ever imagined! We had our last baby, a rainbow baby, and she not only captured our announcement photos but the most amazing rainbow maternity session I could have ever hoped for! And my family and I will be forever grateful for her creative eye!"


"With my first son, I didn’t get many photos to capture our nursing journey and when it abruptly came to an end nine months in, I regretted that deeply. With my second babe, I knew I needed to do better. This is the best, most rewarding time in my life and I needed photos to capture that memory forever. Jes absolutely exceeded my expectations. We walked and talked about life while we scoped out a beautiful location she recommended. I got to sit back and nurse my son out in the sun and didn’t feel like I was doing it just for a photo. It felt natural and comfortable with her as my photographer. Highly recommend her."


"I can’t recommend Jessica enough! I reached out to her the day before my husband left on deployment to book her for homecoming. Because she only does one family per command, I wanted to make sure I got to her early. She not only captured our moments, but that of many of the other families there as well. If you are thinking about booking a photographer for homecoming, do not hesitate and reach out!"

- Jill

"Jessica was fantastic shooting my daughter's first birthday cake smash session! She was professional and extremely patient. I knew I was going to love our pictures before we even received our gallery. She truly cared about our session down to the colors I wanted in the background, helping me choose an outfit, and offering an allergen friendly cake, which we needed! I can't wait for our next session with Second Heart Photography!"

- Nicole

"A beautiful depiction of a love now and a love still to come for our little family - Jes was absolutely fabulous to work with. She beautifully captured images for us that we will cherish for years and years to come. Our session was laid back, easy, and perfectly tailored to what we wanted as an end result for our photos. Communication was quick and she was extremely flexible even with us changing location of the session. Her client closet took all the stress out of finding something to wear, and the multiple options ensured that I had something I truly felt beautiful in. A great experience all around. Thanks, Jes!"

- Aurora
