Do you remember when they said to back everything up to a floppy disc? Yep, we did that, and now they don't exist anymore.

Or how about saving them to a CD? Yep, did that too! And guess what, we don't do that anymore either!

Nowadays, they say let's back up to a USB or a Hard Drive. So we did, and then the hard drive crashed and the USB had nothing on it.

Meanwhile the framed heirloom print over the mantle looks over and smiles at us, and the albums on the bookshelf poke each other and giggle.

I am not really into the business of selling digital files. But don't worry, all Jessie James Photography clients go home with digital files from their session.
As well as beautiful, tangible products for you to take home with you.

At Jessie James Photography it's about heirloom quality products to treasure for many years to come and providing you with a superior customer service experience.

I believe in doing more than just showing up and taking your photos...

Where do I want to display my images?
How do I want to see them in 10-15 years?
What look am I going for?
Why do I want these images?

Prep for Your Shoot

Let's talk about your goals.  What are we shooting for and how will we plan it?  From how images will be displayed, what to wear, color design, and home decor.  The pre-consultation helps answer ALL of your questions and helps us to get to know your family.  
We will coordinate the session based on what you love most, and what you would like to get out of your session.  It is carefully designed and planned.  
Beautiful portraits begin with a great relationship.  Tell us about your personal style, your home, and your vision.  We'll add our creativity to make it happen. 


the Big Day

Newborn and baby photography sessions, take place in our Staten Island, in-home studio. We work with both controlled studio lighting and natural lighting, and have a beautiful selection of handmade props and set designs. The space is a calm and relaxed environment, where we create a look that is timeless and unique. Childrens’ sessions can be captured in studio or on-location. Studio sessions with Jessie are fun and relaxed. Your experience is very important to us, and our goal is to make you feel as comfortable as possible during your photo session. You’ll enjoy an amazing photo-shoot experience, with lots of giggles, fun, and sometimes even some snacks. But most importantly, create beautiful memories for your family for years to come! 

the shoot!

The Collections

With the planning we do prior to your shoot, including discussions with you about your goals and desires, this decision is easy! Jessie will be photographing your art piece with the end result that we discussed in mind. Your art piece is created and designed according to the aesthetics of the space where it will be displayed. With decisions made prior to the shoot, you'll be given the option to choose from one of our Collections which include both art and digital files.

I know you are dying to see those photos and it'll be worth the wait!

Final Delivery

About 3-4 weeks later, your artwork will be ready for pickup.  We will call you to let you know it is ready, and make arrangements for you to finally take it home. (Don't worry you will still have a digital gallery to flip through while you wait.)  If you need help with installation, we will gladly provide someone who will help.  Once your portraits are hung up, you can enjoy them every single day.  These are your precious children, who are growing way too fast, and who you will cherish until the end of time. 

Want to get your favorites printed to display in your home? I got you, mama!

Milestone Session

The best time to schedule your session is before your little one is born. This way you can rest assured that your newborn photo shoot will occur within 2 weeks of birth, the very best time to get the sweetest photographs! My weekly calendar fills up quickly and I only take on a limited amount of newborns each month. Let’s make sure that we have your session on the calendar before the birth so that you don’t have to think about it once the baby is born. You can schedule your appointment Monday-Friday right here.

Your due date will be your session date so that we can be sure that you are on my calendar for that month. Once your baby is born and you are ready to go home, all you have to do is send me an email and from there we’ll schedule a definitive session date and time within the first 5-10 days of your baby’s arrival. Once you book your newborn photo shoot session I’ll send you a detailed email with all the information you need to know including scheduling once the baby is here, what you can expect from your session, how to prep yourself and your baby and other helpful insights and tips.

The sooner the better! Newborns tend to stay sound asleep a few days after birth and because of this we are able to gently move your little one into sweet poses. After a couple of weeks, this is not as easy to do. After the 14 day mark babies begin to stretch and the poses won’t be as easy to accomplish.

Absolutely! Photographing your little one surrounded by family is an incredible experience for everyone involved. You will want to book the Family + Newborn session.

You will receive your images 2 weeks from your session date and be able to view them in an online gallery set up just for you!
