Brittany has been bringing her kiddos to me since this past summer to get their pictures taken. I love her boys, even though they wear-me-out during every session we have. This time though, Brittany’s niece and nephew joined her two boys to get their portraits taken. We mainly used natural light in the studio, but had to use continuous lighting and my speedlight for a few. I am so thankful I had gummy snacks and cheese crackers to keep the kids busy and bribe them for smiles. I can not wait to do their next set of pictures this summer or fall!
My name is Jessica Green and I specialize in lifestyles photography - families, newborns, maternity. Since I was a child, photography has always been a passion and love. My first camera was a green 35mm that was given to me for my birthday when I was 11-years-old. That week I used all 10 rolls of film and ever since then my love has grown. My mother was a gifted journalist and photographer for the associated press and also did free-lance work, so naturally I knew I was destined to find my way to the industry eventually. I went to school at Indiana University and obtained a B.A. in journalism/public relations, where I studied many courses in photography and design.
Though photography is not a full-time career, it is still a full time passion. I value the creation of a long term relationship where I can capture your memories from the day of your engagement, all the way through your child’s senior pictures, and beyond. Consultations are of the ut-most importance because I value getting to know you, your family and the occasion to best fit your needs, wants and desires. I can help you decide what to wear, what a good location would be for your session, and much more.
As many people who have children know, family photographs can be very stressful for the child. I always come prepared with props, toys and sometimes candy. I love getting the same level as children; it eases their fear of getting their photo taken and brings out their smile. Families are by far the most fun to photograph!
