We are so glad we decided to invite Jes to photograph our daughter Lylas birth. During the birth, I didn’t even realise Jes was there. She was quietly taking photos in the background with a calm and unassuming presence. When we saw the first photos she gave us the morning after the birth,  I could not believe how spectacular they were and how perfectly she had captured each emotion Andrew and I felt during the birth.. The challenge, the anticipation and absolute joy. The slideshow she put together told a beautiful story of our family together before Lyla arrived, the beauty and challenge her birth and those precious hours after, when my husband and I snuggled with Lyla and my daughter met her for the first time. We are so grateful to know you Jes and can’t thank you enough for giving us such breathtaking photographs to a day we will never forget.

No testimonial can do your photos justice Jes.

“Dear darling Jes, I would like to thank you for the beautiful maternity photographs and the time we have spent. It was the most exciting and marvelous moment of my life and I am so thankful that I could share the moment with you. During the labor, I felt very comfortable with you as if you were my family. You are such a beautiful, charming and talented person, and we can see your beauty and warmth of your heart in your photographs. I feel so excited to imagine that one day we talk about this special Birth Story with our BOY, Taiga.”

“Jess truly makes birth a beautiful thing, such a lovely person, you can tell in her pictures that she has a real passion for her work, one of the best decisions we made was to have our birth photographed. I treasure the photos of my brand new squishy little baby having his first little look at the world, and me moments that will now last forever. I recommend her to everyone.” Abbie Macdonald

“Jes is always an absolute delight to deal with during our photo sessions. She is always bright and bubbly and makes the session fun. Jes is a perfectionist and that is shown in the quality of her work, the end result is always amazing. Jes is always super organised and easy to book with. I don’t generally like having photos taken of myself, but Jes makes the process feel very natural and I have always felt very comfortable with her. We are always very excited to have our sneak peek sent to us on the same day as the photo session and Jes always delivers the final images in a timely fashion. We have loved all four of our photo sessions with Jes, and we do not hesitate to refer her to all our friends and family.”  Stacey

 

“We have been lucky enough to have Jes photograph our little family on a couple of occasions.  We are so in love with her work, that we have now made a commitment to ourselves to book in with her once a year to keep our family pictures up to date (not to mention the prints of her images make fantastic presents for the Grandparents!).We love her unobtrusive style, and that somehow amongst the craziness of two frazzled parents trying to wrangle two rambunctious boys, she can still work her magic.  I have no idea how she manages to capture the moments that she does, but I am always in awe when I get to see the results of our sessions. Talent and passion for what she does aside, Jes just has the most likeable nature, and would be able to make even the most shy client comfortable in front of the camera.  I often get asked who did our family photos because people admire the relaxed natural style of them.I would never hesitate to recommend Jes to anyone who wants to listen.” Laura Burton

“Jes is an amazing photographer who has been capturing our family memories for over 5 years. We have been lucky enough to have Jes capture many memories over the years including new born photos, wedding day photos and many many family photos I can’t recommend Jes enough she is the most amazing and talented photographer and has a very friendly and welcoming personality.” Tamika Kenny.

 

“I have had the pleasure of working with Jes in a professional capacity for over five years, and I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know her and her sweet family. Jes is a delightful combination of relatable and professional, always easy to get along with and a pleasure to work with! We have enjoyed a maternity/family shoot, newborn shoot and another family photo update many years later. We always love the photos, especially the way Jes manages to capture us in a natural way. Even my teenager Jack says the mini-sessions we have had have been fun and enjoys speaking with Jes. I like that we can relax and be our silly selves around Jes and that is definitely part of the magic. I am really happy to recommend Jes Jackson for family photography sessions and know anyone who works with her will be using her services for a long time, I know we will!”

“Our experiences with Jes have been a pleasure to say the least!

She is professional, but relaxed and down to earth and ever so patient with our little ones.

She captures those beautiful moments perfectly!

Highly recommend this lovely lady!”

“We have had a maternity session, newborn session and a mini shoot. Each time Jess showed amazing skill and adaptability. Even a cranky toddler didn’t phase Jess or her beautiful photos! We would highly recommend Jess.”  Bec Ferris

 

 

“Our photos shoot with Jess from itty bitty was amazing! We have 3 very active boys so this sort of thing can be very stressful. But Jess has so much patients and was able to capture such beautiful natural photos making us feel so comfortable they are gorgeous and we will certainly treasure them and be back for more in the near future”  Stacey Benson

“Jes came to our home on 2 occasions to photograph us with our newborn twin boys. She did an amazing job with the boys and was forever patient as they spent the day tag teaming being awake. Our family shots reflect us in our truest sense including our family dogs. It was such a relaxed natural experience for us all no fake smiles or poses just us being us. We will be using her in the future without hesitation.”  Gemma Coe

 

 

“Our family felt comfortable with Jess straight away, she managed to capture those candid moments that represent our family. Her patients, to work for the perfect shot, impressed me!”

Katherine Kohl

 

“Jes has photographed both my children. I fell in love with her images from the moment she captured my smiley 6 m The latest was Heidi who she photographed at just weeks old. Little did we know baby H wasn’t going to be as cooperative or as sleepy as we had hoped. Jes spent many hours waiting for the perfect moment to start clicking away with her camera. Sleep deprived with baby on the boob, off the boob, my toddler getting restless. . my patience wore thin but Jes really has the patience of a saint. She stroked Heidi’s forehead until she fell asleep and captured her perfectly. What is shown in the photos really doesn’t capture the hard work, dedication and patience that goes into each image but what you do see is true talent and passion. Jes is amazing, I can’t recommend her enough. I have already booked her for baby /react-text #3 react-text: 105 who is baking away. You won’t be disappointed, I’ve never seen the same image twice, and she makes your session unique. She is really a delight!”  Gemma Triffit

When I was pregnant with my first child I knew I would want to capture some of those moments.

I had seen some itty bitty photography around and had met Jes previously so I decided to have a chat to her about it.

When I asked Jes to do a maternity shoot for me I never dreamt that I would ever show the pictures to more than a handful of people. I’ve never been happy with photos of myself and was wary about “posing” for pictures. When I got a sneak peak from Jes I cried. I’d never seen myself the way her lens saw me. I loved all the photos and am proud to show any one of them off.

After such a great surprise with the maternity shoot I decided to go ahead with a birth story. My family are notoriously terrible at remembering to take photos and I had a feeling I would be a little preoccupied on the day to give any directions. Again, I told myself that the pictures would probably be a very private memento, shared only with a few close friends and family,. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome; Jes managed to capture the spirit of my son’s birth perfectly. Seeing the full birth story a few weeks later I was so grateful to have those moments captured forever, they added a whole new dimension to the experience that I cherish. 

I only noticed Jes once or twice during the entire labour. She really was so respectful during such a vulnerable and special time. Again I’ve surprised myself by being happy to show off my birth story. The photos make me feel so proud and strong, they are beautiful, I can’t recommend itty bitty photography highly enough.
