i'm a storyteller


The way I go about photographing families is channeled from my own 3 kids and the fast-paced, chaotic, wonderful life that we live.


My kiddos taught me to let go of perfection and allow them to tell our story.

They show me what is worthy of documenting.


You can expect to start your session with a formal pose *if the little ones are into it*.

From there I'll have you loosen up, have fun, and be yourselves.


I'll sit down in front of you and ask questions or just chat with your family.

This will help me play off the interests of the children and allow them to guide our direction.


Do they love bugs? Let's go on a bug hunt!

Love the thrill of airplane rides? 4-3-2-1 blast off!

Need a little longer to warm up? Snuggles it is!

i tag along during


Once in a lifetime proposals. First moments with newlyweds.
Your last days of just the two of you.
"Can't eat, can't sleep, reach for the stars love" stories.


I'll come along and play the ultimate game of hide & seek.

Sasquatch has met his match.

Just kidding - I talk way too much to be invisible.


Most couples want direction in fear that they will be awkward during their photos.


What I want you to know is that your intimate interactions with each other are more than enough to translate your love.


Of course I will prompt you with poses, but I strive to get you to be yourselves and feel comfortable sharing your love story with me & my camera.


After-all, I'm just there, third-wheeling, documenting your heart.

like a really fun guest


I spent the last 3 hours of my wedding on the dance floor.
I'm warming up my dance moves for yours!


Whatever your wedding plans are

small and intimate....a large dance party....near or far

count on me to capture your first moments as newlyweds.


Each couple and wedding are different.

We will work together to create a timeline that aligns with your vision.

I'll create a custom quote for you specifically detailed for your perfect day.


I cherish my wedding photos & I want to give you the same love for yours.

cherishing motherhood


This time is such a blessing.

Sometimes it is mixed with excitement, discomfort, worry & nervousness.


I understand and can empathize with all your feelings.


However you feel when you arrive,

I promise to make this moment really special for you.


We will laugh & slow down time.

I'll tell you often how much I love this moment.


I hope you leave your session with a new friend

& someone you can reach out to.


My promise to you is to deliver

a beautiful gallery that reflects your glow.

AM I THE RIGHT

PHOTOGRAPHER & cookie critic

FOR YOU?



+ You seek simplicity & find joy in ordinary moments &

the classics like chocolate chip cookies

+ Life can get a little ooey-gooey & that's the way we like it.

+ You ache to savor time, but also embrace the

richness from each changing season. 

+ You are often wondering how to bottle up the echos of belly laughs

after cookie thieves are caught.

+ The perfect memories are a little bit salty & sweet...

a little bit crunchy & gooey.

Kind words make my heart so happy.

Jessica is amazing! We booked a full session with her and got so many amazing photos. She makes the session fun and is so easy going. We definitely plan to keep using her for all of our photos!

FAMILY SESSION, Duran

Best experience ever! We had a great time, and our pictures turned out amazing! It’s so hard to pick a favorite! Can’t wait to use Jessica again!

FAMILY SESSION, Diebel

Love our little family. Cherishing these moments captured by Jessica Kay Photography. She rolled with us and documented our babies sweet smiles in such a beautiful way. So thankful to have this phase of life and their little personalities captured.

FAMILY SESSION, Sommerfield

Jessica is a miracle worker! She takes beautiful photos in any and every location! We started taking advantage of Jessica’s mini-sessions when my daughter was 5 weeks old, and we haven’t looked back since! We just finished our 3rd mini, and our 4th is booked for November!! Jess is incredible with babies, she has props and blankets for every occasion, she communicates regularly & is open for suggestions, and she has quick turnover with photos! I cannot recommend Jessica enough.

FAMILY SESSION, McKone

We absolutely love our sneak peak! We had the best time with Jessica. Stress free, no tears, and got some of the cutest smiles. We would recommend her to anyone.

Absolutely in love with our family pictures. I could go on and on about how great Jessica Kay Photography is, but I think these pictures speak for themselves!
