Just look at him. Aren’t babies just perfect? Those perfect little features, teeny little hands and toes. GAH. I just can’t get enough. Seriously. I have five of my own and could truly sit and hold a baby for hours on end and not tire of it. Sweet little Hugh was a dream. I got […]

This was an unforgettable newborn portrait session. I’d love to say that I can remember every single baby that comes to the studio, but the truth is I can’t even remember exactly what my own babies looked like at each stage without the help of some photos so I can’t begin to remember every baby […]

Jessica Johnston Photography Newborn Portraits

This boy is pure squish. Be honest. When you look at his portraits, do you want to reach out and just squeeze his little rolls a little bit? Yeah he’s just adorable…no surprise there, I mean look at his family! Maybe you’re familiar by now, they’ve been featured on this blog a time or seven. […]

Meet the Pello family! Remember when I photographed them in a field? Or at this park? I’ve been photographing this awesome family since their oldest was a newborn! We tried something new this year for their family portraits and I absolutely love the results! First of all, this family is so photogenic and fun, it […]

Sweet Hart. He was all cheeks just like his big brother and adorably sleepy. I love my job, have I mentioned that? I love photographing this family – they are just so photogenic and beautiful! I remember when his big brother, Jax, was a newborn and had SO much hair. We were surprised to go […]

Another family that I’ve known for years now and I’m thankful to have been able to develop friendships and to watch those little boys grow. They are full of personality and energy and I say it all the time, anyone with more than one more has me in awe. They are a different breed! 🙂 […]

I love this family! I met them years ago and every session I am just in awe of how sweet and cute these kids are and just how beautiful they are together. We always have some laughs and I take waaaaay too many pictures (as if I thought that was possible). When Zoe’s mom said […]

I think pregnancy is beautiful. I always have. I love hearing how moms are feeling, how much the baby is kicking, whether they’re finding out if they’re having a boy or girl, everything. I love birth stories and I LOVE babies. I am always so excited to hear when a family I’ve worked with for […]

I saw an image on pinterest of a little girl throwing a handful of glitter in the air with the biggest smile on her face and I had two thoughts: What a MESS!!! and how fun that must be!! So to save families everywhere from the mess of the glitter tossing, I decided to offer […]
