Wesley was a dream to photograph. He was such a sweet, perfect little guy. His mommy warned me that he was having tummy issues, but we didn’t have much of a problem with him… that was until he threw up all of his formula on his momma. Sweet newborn Wesley came to the studio with his grandma, dad and mom. His mom had said that she had really wanted pictures of him in a boat but that she could not afford/ want to buy the wood boat she found for his newborn session… she was in luck! A while back I had bought a nautical themed backdrop and a wood boat hoping to get a baby boy to photograph (it seemed like there for a while I was having all baby girls). Momma was ecstatic and even brought a crochet captains hat!
A little back story, Wesley’s Daddy and Grandpa work Off Shore, so the boating / nautical theme was important to this little family.

J.L.CustomPHotos L.L.C. Greenfield, Indiana Newborn Photographer
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!
