Jessie B Photography is Simply Amazing. She made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera. She knew the concept I had in mind for my shoot and had a plan set for the direction she wanted and executed it so well. I want Jessica at all my events from now on. She's The Best!Dec 14, 2019
Jessie did some really great work in our home when we gathered all the family together over the winter holidays. I really love how she worked with the children in our clan, allowing them to be the sometimes energetic and unpredictable people they are, yet still producing flattering results in her work. She took both indoor and outdoor shots and exhibited the most admirable patience and empathy with every generation of our extended family. I also appreciate her creativity -- she was able to make suggestions about where we'd get maximum benefit from the early light, then produce photos that were astoundingly good, capturing both the mood of the moment and the personality of the subject. She even photographed our pets, which we hadn't expected! I trust her keen 'eye,' I appreciate her kind compassion, and I admire her great work. Our entire family was extraordinarily pleased with Jessie and would not hesitate to use her again.Dec 4, 2019

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?PRICING & PACKAGES The session pricing listed on Thumbtack is a girlie. Each session is tailored to your specific needs. The average Mini-Session is 45 minutes in the location of your choice. I capture a gallery of approx 7-10 images. Within 1-2 weeks of your session, your gallery will be presented DEPOSIT & FEES A 50% Session Deposit is due at the time of booking. This deposit reserves our time together - Sessions booked through Thumbtack also include a $25 print credit toward your prints, products, and digital files. There may be a travel fee for sessions outside of the Chicagoland area. The client is responsible for all parking fees. PAYMENT PLANS I don’t advertise it but yes, I do offer payment plans for larger packages. I understand that custom photography is an investment. I will work with you to get the images you've been dreaming of; even if it means making payments or taking photos in installments. Just ask and we can set something up that works for you!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?From start to finish, the process for a family or brand building portrait session can actually take several months, depending on your schedule and my workload. It’s definitely an investment of time, but the end results are well worth it! Here’s a timeline for a typical session: • 2 weeks to several months – booking, planning, and getting ready for the session. • 1-3 hours – the session itself • Up to 3 weeks after the session, you’ll receive your images in a password protected online gallery! • 1 week to place your order • 1-2 weeks you will receive your completed prints &/or files If you purchased an album or other press product, they are custom made and will arrive within 4 weeks of purchase.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I took a film photography class in high school that really helped me learn the art of photography with skills like exposure, composition, and lighting. My first job at age 16 was as a photographer at a photo studio in the mall. There I learned posing techniques for babies, single portraits, and families. A few years out of high school, I got my first DSLR (a Nikon D5000). I was excited to get out of the darkroom and into Lightroom and Photoshop. I joined groups/forums, read everything I could get my hands on and watched as many YouTube tutorials as I could find. Then I played, and played, and played until I started getting results I liked. And that’s that! I just learned by reading/ watching tutorials and doing... and making a lot of mistakes along the way.
