Introduction: Welcome! :) Business first... Why does my cost show up as $375? Well, I have decided to display the total cost for the session INCLUDING the digital download. I have been in business since 2007 and I do not like my clients to be confused when it comes to pricing. When you see a "base price" on Thumbtack that is only for the session fee which is what you will most likely see on other photographer's pages. Then later you are hit with the surprise "Real Cost" to you. I don't like surprises anymore than you do! :) Need Family Portraits? Senior Portraits? Beach Wedding or Couples Portraits? Surprise engagement? Updated head shots for work and/or social media? Have an old photo that needs to be restored? SW Florida portrait photographer Jean Oakley is here to serve you! During Covid your photographer will be wearing a mask. This is a great time to get Senior pictures out of the way! Give me a call today so that I can find out what your vision is and together we can make it happen with a budget that works for you. Serving areas including but not limited to: Englewood, Venice, Boca Grande & Little Gasparilla. My clients are like extended family to me and they always come back! Let’s chat and see what I can do for YOU!

Professionalism at its finest. Jean was very easy going and accommodating and determined to get the perfect shot. Not being highly photogenic, she was able deliver many photos to select from. Will use her services again 👍🏽

Headshot Photography

It was a pleasure to work with Jean. She’s very innovative and responsive. Worked around my schedule to schedule the photo shoot on a Sunday. She understood my needs for a lifestyle shoot, and brought her own props and helped click hundreds of pictures over 3 hours. Turned around the touched up pictures very quickly too. It was immense fun to work with Jean and I would highly recommend her.

Jean was so great at being flexible with me since I really wanted outdoor photos by the beach on a nice day! She was extremely accommodating to what I wanted to do with a variety of shots and outfits! The photos turned out beautifully with lots of color and I had a lot to choose from. She was overall so fun to work with and made the process smooth and comfortable!
