My name is Jessica Legler ; I am J.L.CustomPhotos L.L.C. and I specialize in lifestyles photography – families, newborns, maternity, engagements and weddings. 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!
