Our first newborn session with Jess was in 2010 when our daughter Lily was born. We had seen other work Jess had done with other newborns and families and hoped that we would be able to get pictures as amazing as those during our session.  We were not the least bit disappointed. During the session, Jess painstakingly manipulated every detail till she was confident she had reached the level of perfection that only she can achieve. The pictures we got from it were the most amazing photos of our newborn and our family that we had to date.

We are so enthralled by the work Jess does that we often joked that we would have more children just so we could experience another newborn session with her. Well, two more children later, we have done just that. Time and time again, we are presented with the most gorgeous images that capture more than we are able to put into words. She continues to amaze us with what she is able to do with her mind and camera.

She is patient, creative, thoughtful and entertaining. Her demeanor during a session puts everyone – from the adults to siblings, to the newborn at ease. Her attention to detail gives you full confidence that you will have successfully captured that beautiful but fleeting moment with a newborn.

We love Jess and wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking to book newborn, kids, and family photographs. You will be blown away and your heart will smile each time you see the product of her work.

Katie and I had our first child (Quinn) this past January and could not have been more excited. Like most new parents, we researched and over analyzed everything, including who would be the best photographer for our little girl. After seeing Jess’s work in our pediatricians office, we knew we found the right person. From the moment we arrived, Jess was extremely accommodating and made us feel at ease. After taking Quinn and watching a few photos, we were able to step out of the photo room and leave a few shots for a surprise. After a couple weeks, we certainly were surprised and could not believe how amazing the pictures came out. They were so amazing that we ended up with all of the pictures and have used them for multiple gifts for family members, and pictures in pretty much every room in the house. Really appreciate Jess’s attention to detail, ease of working with and professionalism in the work produced. Can’t wait for round two in a couple years.

My husband and I loved working with Jess for our twins newborn shoot. We discovered her work in our Ob/gyn office and knew we wanted to work with her for Max & Nathan’s first pictures. She has a spacious studio and provides lots of refreshments. The boys were at ease with her and her assistent. They were very professional and managed to keep the babies calm and quiet during the whole shoot. I trusted them so much I even took a little nap on her very comfy couch 😉

The pictures are an amazing memory of my sweet little boys first days. She designed our birth announcements and people still complement us on the wonderful pictures. We also have a picture of the four of us together. Although I did not feel confident to pose just days after giving birth, I can only recommend it. We now have lots of memories of the boys and a beautiful family portrait!

We couldn’t be more pleased with our experience with Jess Kamm.  The actual photo shoot was a calm and pleasurable experience due to Jess’ nurturing instincts with our 10-day old newborn boy and her laid back, cheery demeanor.  Throughout the shoot, we got glimpses of Jess’ work and knew the outcome was going to be amazing.  After receiving the final pictures, our expectations were far exceeded.  We received countless compliments from friends and family from the birth announcements, and several claimed they were the best they’ve ever seen.  We also ordered a few prints and canvas wraps from Jess which were affordable and finished in a very timely manner.  We have recommended Jess Kamm to everyone we know and can’t wait to go back and have the pleasure of working with her again!

My daughter’s pictures are so important to me because she changes a little each day. When considering her newborn photos I knew I needed the right photographer to capture such a precious moment in time, one that wouldn’t last long… after seeing Jess’ portfolio I booked with her right away. I cannot say enough about Jess’ creative talent. It takes a great amount of skill to capture the look and feel of her pictures and believe me – when it comes to babies, all photographers are not created equal. Little ones are unpredictable so you need a lot of patience when photographing them and boy does Jess have that. Prior to my daughter’s appointment I was prepped on all the things I would need to know to ensure a perfect shoot, such as keeping her awake before we arrived so she would sleep during the session and bringing extra bottles… this incite proved to be crucial. And Jess worked with us for hours so I never felt rushed or like our time was running out. As a new mom I was so impressed with her ability to work with my newborn that I dubbed her the baby whisperer. She is a natural with babies, definitely has the magic touch. She was phenomenal and I’ll certainly be back when we have baby number two.

Jess is the BEST photographer for newborns! I got her name from my OB-GYN and gave her a call in my last few weeks of pregnancy. We set a date for my babies first photo shoot…so exciting. Unfortunately, I got sick while in the hospital. Jess called to confirm our appointment and was not only concerned for me, but changed my appointment and got me excited all over again about the pictures we would be taking of our darling new little Sophie Bleu.

A week later we arrived at her studio. Jess was so warm and welcoming even offering my husband and I refreshments and yummy taffy which she keeps in her adorable snack area. Sophie Bleu seemed right at home in her cozy studio with sweet lullaby’s playing softly in the back ground. Even my husband almost fell asleep! Jess is a natural with newborns and I immediately felt at ease. Her ideas were great and we even collaborated on a few props.

We loved our experience and our pictures truly captured the most amazing time in our lives.

Jess is not just our child’s lifelong photographer, she is our life long friend.
