Jessica Lee Photography

Recently I had the opportunity to meet up with Jessica from Jessica Lee Photography. I had a great time getting to know her, and we were able to put together a partnership of sorts so that our clients have someone to call no matter what type of photography they want. I interviewed her to find out more about her career and interest in photography. If you are looking for someone to take pictures for your family, she is a great choice, and you can learn more about her and see some of her work below.

About Jessica Lee Photography

My name is Jessica. I’m married to my high school sweetheart and we have three children. I grew up in Maryland but moved around the country while my husband was in the military. We settled in Colorado for 10 years and recently moved to Alabama. I started my career as an elementary teacher. After we started having our own little ones, I needed a more flexible job, so I started my journey with photography. I’ve been photographing babies and families for over 12 years now, and it’s truly my love.

Interview

Like most photographers, I started to photograph my own children and fell in love with the whole process!

Photography encompasses everything I love, children, memories, connection, art, etc.

 

I started a 365 project! I took a photo every single day and I learned so much that year. My learning journey with photography continued to grow. I’ve invested a lot in classes and mentorships.

 

Truly understanding the business side of photography. I jumped in, not knowing there was a lot to learn there.

I love connecting with families and coming along to tell their stories! They are entrusting me with their greatest memories and it’s an incredible honor!

 

While I love all my sessions, my first-year collective babies have my heart. We tell the whole story of their first year of life. These clients become like family to me and their baby becomes so comfortable with me!

 

I’m a service-driven business, so I truly focus on serving my clients from the very beginning from hair/makeup, wardrobe, design, and installation of their beautiful images.

I love the consistency and coziness of my studio, but I also love the variety that the outdoors offers.

 

Maternity + Newborn + 6 months + 1 year is my most popular package.

My kids inspire me the most. They are growing up so quickly and the photos I have of them are some of my greatest treasures!

 

Oh, this is a hard one! I truly don’t think I could choose one favorite!

 

I used Nikon for 10 years and just switched to Canon for the R6 mirrorless Camera and it’s amazing.

My Canon 28-70 never leaves my camera – It’s sharp and has great focal lengths. Although, it is VERY heavy!

 

The R6 — the new technology is amazing!
