“We were visiting California for a family vacation and wanted some long overdue family pictures. I found Jessica on IG and from the first conversation loved her spirit and knew we had to use her. She took the time to scout locations that had varied landscape (beach and trees) and brought music to help my little ones feel comfortable and have a great time. She was extremely professional while making sure we had a fun and that it was a memorable experience. We ended up with a perfect mix of candies and posed shots that truly represented our family. She’s truly a wonderful person and photographer!”

Sandi L.

"My husband and I wanted to get family pictures taken with our 7 month old son (not an easy task as anyone who's had babies knows!) and Jessica nailed it! We absolutely LOVE our pictures!! She did such a great job working with our little one to capture his priceless smiles. :) Jessica was super easy to work with too, it was more like having a friend take pictures, especially as she was cracking the best dad jokes during the session! Highly recommend Jessica Francis Photography!"

Ashley B.

"Wow! What a gifted young artist! Jessica's dedication and steadfast pursuit of the "perfect shot" is second to none. She was extremely flexible working with two wild children that love to run around in their own worlds. From consulting about outfits to location for the shoot she was there every step the way. She was excellent in collaborating during the shoot and an absolute pleasure to work with. I would recommend that anyone who wants a quality product as well as a fantastic experience please take advantage of Jessicas talent. Thank you so very much. We are excited for the next shoot!!!"

Sean S.

"Jessica is an AMAZING photographer. I am typically very awkward and uncomfortable having my photos taken and Jessica is the first photographer to make me feel relaxed and comfortable. She picks the most amazing locations and knows when to time your session so the light is just magical. I cannot recommend Jessica enough - I've had other photos taken and was not pleased with the results...EVERY-SINGLE-ONE-IS-MY-FAVORITE!"

Teena B.

“Jessica is such an amazing photographer! She took family photos for us- which included my baby boy (11 months). She was not only very professional but enthusiastic, very kind, and hilarious. The day of our pictures, she was very prepared! We got there on time and she was already set up and ready to go. She brought blankets for the pictures and even a squeaky toy to get my baby’s attention! She even brought a clothes changing area, which was clutch! Her positive energy was contagious, and I could even tell my husband was having a good time. You could tell she loves what she does and cares so much about creating memories for her clients. I will definitely work with her in the future and recommend you do too!”

Taylor L.

“Incredible customer service!! Jess is one of the friendliest and most down to earth photographers my girlfriend and I have ever had the pleasure of doing business with. From setting up the appointment for the shoot, to getting the final product and everything in between, she made the process SO easy! Jess is extremely detail oriented and will bend over backwards to ensure you get the best quality product. We had such a blast when she put on music for us to dance to while capturing us in our element. I absolutely love the way they came out! I HIGHLY recommend you book her ASAP if you want the best photos and an experience that'll last a lifetime!”

Josh C.

"Using Jessica Francis Photography was such a special, professional experience. The quality of the work was perfection. Jessica captured very special moments my two daughters had during the photo shoot. I have used Jessica’s photos for special gifts for family during the holidays. Jessica is an extremely talented artist, photographer that I would recommend to anyone who is looking for special, unique photos. Thank you for your service and creating memories my family will cherish forever..xo"

Jodi G.

“I found Jess through Instagram hashtags when looking for a photographer while my husband and I were (back) in CA for our 8th anniversary. Jess truly paid attention to what I was asking for and even compiled some example concepts before we even packed our bags to head out. I specifically had ONE pose in my head, and she executed brilliantly; that’s my showpiece pic and I will treasure it for a lifetime!”

Kiki R.

“Jessica is absolutely amazing at what she does! It was the best experience I’ve ever had. She made me feel beautiful and comfortable in my own skin which is very hard. She has an amazing personality as well! I will always have her as my Photographer for the rest of my life! You will never be disappointed when you hire her for your special photos.”
