"We absolutely loved both her and her work. She really captured moments of our son's birth that will forever be cherished. Jessica's approach of just blending in with our family and capturing candid moments while I was in labor was exactly what we were looking for! The shoot yielded absolutely beautiful shots that show my birth story. End-to-end, we couldn’t have had a better experience nor have we ever seen a better set of birth photos, newborn photos, motherhood photos, or family photos."
We have an in-house hair & makeup artist that we work with exclusively to enhance your portrait experience with us. Hair & makeup is included in our booking fee for studio sessions! There is a small travel fee for outdoor/in-home sessions. Once we book your session, we will determine a mutually-agreeable date between our hair & makeup artist and you!
HOW DOES HAIR & MAKEUP WORK?
We book many months in advance so as soon as you know your due date, we recommend you reserve your spot! The sooner the better. However, if you did forget to book a newborn session and you're quickly approaching birth (or maybe already gave birth), definitely still contact me to see if we can fit you into the schedule. Newborn sessions are typically scheduled within your baby's first 3-6 weeks of life, but can be photographed up to 10 weeks of age!
WHEN SHOULD WE BOOK?
No. The booking fee reserves your session time and an ordering appointment. After your session, you'll come to the studio for an ordering appointment or receive a proofing video of images. JGP clients typically invest at least $1500+ at their ordering appointment, where they can purchase custom artwork and digital files.
DO DIGITALS COME WITH THE booking FEE?
Our luxury full-service studio is located in Warrenton, Virginia right in town. While most clients live within 1-1.5 hours of the studio, we have had clients travel 3 hours one way just for a studio session! The studio is meant to give a minimalist setting and provides a clean and beautifully lit space for all families. We are conveniently located right in the middle of downtown Warrenton with lots to do nearby!
WHERE IS YOUR STUDIO LOCATED?
Our style can be described in four words: timeless, simple, joyful, and luxurious. We love being able to capture your joy in celebrating your little ones! It is our job to bring out your inner beauty and let it shine throughout your session. Don't you worry about a thing! We're there to pose you in the most flattering light just for you! Our editing style has been described as timeless and bright and it is that way in order to exude joy and remain as simple and classic as possible! We are not "trend" or "fad" photographers and we want these photographs to look classic 100 years from now.
What is your style?
Please submit a note through our contact form. Once we've heard from you, we will schedule a consultation call to go over our investment information for you to understand your investment to commission us to create custom artwork for you. Once we've had our consultation call and you've decided you want to work with us, we'll send over a proposal (contract & invoice) to secure your date!
HOW DO WE BOOK?
HOW MUCH DO CLIENTS TYPICALLY INVEST?
Our booking fee is $450. JGP clients typically to invest at least $2000+ at their ordering appointment, where they can purchase custom artwork and digital files.
We completely understand that photography can be a big investment. We do offer payment plans! Please inquire and let us know your situation and we can work with you to create your own payment plan. Product orders will be placed once you are paid in full. We do also offer financing through PayPal Credit (if you're approved) which is interest-free if paid within 6 months.
DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?
We do offer gift certificates that can be mailed to either the purchaser or the recipient of the gift certificate. If you haven't had your baby shower yet, we do also offer photography gift registries so friends and family can gift a portion of your package. Please email us for details!
DO YOU HAVE A REGISTRY/GIFT CERTIFICATE?
If you live out of state and are wanting a Jessica Green Photography Baby Experience or family portrait session, we do offer travel! These sessions would be lifestyle in-home sessions or outdoor portrait sessions, rather than in our luxury studio. Just inquire and let us know that this is something you're interested in.
DO YOU TRAVEL?
Our goal is to be as flexible as possible and luckily, with a studio and lighting equipment, we aren't limited by the sun! This way, we can schedule around nap time and weather doesn't affect timing. If you're looking to do an outdoor session, these typically take place 1-2 hours before the sun sets for the best lighting. However, we can do sessions in shaded areas during other times of the day to be flexible. I'm a mom so I understand nap time can make or break a toddler.
WHAT ABOUT NAP TIME?
With the full gallery of images (purchased separately at your ordering appointment), you can expect the following: For maternity & milestone sessions, you can expect at least 45 images. You can expect at least 60 images for family portrait sessions. For newborn sessions, you can expect at least 60 images. We believe in quality over quantity.
HOW MANY IMAGES DO WE RECEIVE?
Our approach to newborn posing is simple, natural and unposed using simple neutral-colored swaddles, plain white onesie shots, and plain white diapers/diaper covers. We take an organic approach to newborn posing so your newborn will look natural and be cohesive with our photography style. For the full family portion, you can expect interactive posing involving parents and siblings of the newborn, as well as a few traditional portraits.
HOW DO YOU POSE NEWBORNS?
For the individual newborn portrait of the session, in-home sessions are 100% baby-led and the individual newborn portraits for in-home sessions are taken on the master bed and in the crib in a lifestyle/documentary fashion. For the full family and mommy/baby and daddy/baby portions, these portraits are naturally posed on the master bed, rocking chair, and near a window.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FOR AN IN-HOME NEWBORN SESSION?
The studio is not pet-friendly, but if you'd like to involve your fur-babies in an outdoor portrait session, we are more than excited to have them along for the ride!
DO YOU ALLOW PETS?
Studio sessions can be held rain, snow, or shine and aren't rescheduled for weather (unless we're unable to drive to the studio). For outdoor sessions, if there is greater than 60% chance of rain during your session timeframe, we would reschedule at the next mutually-agreeable date. We are very flexible, and have even moved a session to earlier/later in the day to avoid rain! If a maternity session were not able to be rescheduled prior to your due date, the session fee can be used towards the balance on a milestone or family session.
WHAT IF IT RAINS?
