"I came across Jessica’s work on Instagram. We were searching for an in home photographer that could capture our son in a more natural setting. Jessica, seemed to have the perfect eye for what we hoped for. She didn’t disappoint! Our pictures came out beautifully. The entire experience was stellar from start to finish. From the way she so delicately handled our baby to the ideas she had for getting just the right shot to the editing she did post-shoot, I must say, she is great at what she does and we will definitely use her again for future milestone pictures."​​


"Jess is delightful to work with and a natural with babies and kids alike. Our photos have always turned out better than we could've hoped for. She's captured cherished memories that now hang on our walls. We'll be back again soon."


"So thankful for the sweet moments Jess captured with our little man! I will treasure these images forever."


"We were very happy with the wonderful photos and memories Jessica Fogel helped create for us in thew newborn period. She is great at what she does and knows how to work around even the most stubborn newborn who refuses to nap :)"


"We had a wonderful experience with Jessica as our newborn photographer! She was so nice and the pictures turned out amazing!! Highly recommend!!"


"Jessica is not only a phenomenal photographer and videographer, but she is professional and so kind! She always went the extra mile with our family to help us capture special moments early on in our daughter’s life. I am forever thankful for the photos and video we have from her!"


"Jessica Fogel is the only photographer we trust when it comes to capturing such important moments. She is so skilled and extremely passionate in her work. She is amazing to work with and very accommodating. The photos she’s taken of our family have brought me to tears every time and I so am glad we found her. Best decision we’ve made in choosing a photographer."


"Gorgeous photos and beautiful videography! I’m so thankful for Jessica! She was professional, friendly and was so great with our daughter—it really helps a lot to have a photographer who knows babies so well."


"Had Jess for our maternity photoshoot. She is very responsive and fast! Loved her quality of work and the fact that you get unlimited number of photos. Everything was just so beautiful!"


"Jessica was wonderful to work with, she made the whole experience so comfortable and was absolutely amazing with our daughter. We enjoyed the whole experience capturing pictures of our family the first days of bringing our daughter home! Plus she got some greats snaps of our fur-daughter in the process."


"Jess was fantastic! She was the perfect photographer to shoot our 3 month old’s milestone pictures. From the moment I spoke to her I felt extremely confident that she will do a great job. I contacted Jess through her website and she replied within hours! I had tons of questions for her and she happily responded to each and every one of them! She made me feel very relaxed as I was anxious about the photoshoot before speaking to her. On the day of the shoot she arrived on time, was pleasant, upbeat, and immediately took over with dressing our baby, changing his outfits, placing him for poses, etc. Most importantly she was very careful in holding our baby and made sure that safety was the priority. My husband and I just had to sit back and relax! She captured very beautiful moments of us 3. She promised 100 photos but we ended up getting over 400! And her turnaround time was amazing, we had our photos in 2 days! Most photographers promise 10-20 photos for double the price and take weeks to deliver the photos. We were overall very pleased with Jess and will definitely work with her again! Highly recommend! She will not disappoint!"


"Jess was so great with our newborn. She’s gentle and knows how to make every photo look natural. I’d recommend her to any new parents looking to work with an awesome photographer."


"The Chicago Newborn Photographer was great to work with! We absolutely loved every photo and she gave so many options/angles. Jessica was a baby whisperer getting our twins to cooperate. Would definitely book her again!"


"Jess took amazing photos of our family. She made the photo session so relaxing and natural which was great when trying to capture photos of the newborn with our 3 year old. I would highly recommend hiring her for any family photos!"


"Jess is the best. We had a baby during the pandemic and she came over, wore a mask, took the cutest pics of our babe, AND both dogs loved her. I will forever treasure the pictures of baby B and his two dog siblings. We're having her back for 1st birthday pictures in a few months!"


"Jess was incredible! I wanted newborn pictures taken, but was skeptical of what kind of pictures we would get with a sleepy 3 week old and 2 very tired looking new parents. Thankfully, Jess was extremely communicative when planning the session and when the day came, it couldn't have been easier. She was in and out in less than an hour - not disrupting the shaky semblance of a routine we had going at that point. To top it all off, we now have beautiful keepsakes of this special time in our lives. I would 100% recommend her again and again!"


"Jessica was amazing to work with. She was prompt, professional and easy-going. Our four kids didn’t make her bat an eye and we got photos we will treasure for the rest of our lives. She perfectly captured our miracle pandemic baby and we couldn’t be any happier!"


"We cannot say enough great things about Jess. It was such a crazy time in our lives and somehow she managed to capture the feel, mood, beauty, and intimacy of those earliest weeks as a family of three. She was patient and professional and manages to make us feel totally comfortable throughout the whole session. Our family will treasure the moments she captured forever. We plan to use her for our next newborn shoot for sure!"


"We used Jess for the first pictures of our son, when he was just 2 weeks old. I cannot say enough amazing things about Jess as both a person & a professional. She managed to make our disaster of a house look beautiful in pictures, got the sweetest moments of our son, and her pictures are gorgeous. We recently moved out of state otherwise I would be using Jess for all of our family photos. Book her, you will not regret it!"


"Working with Jess was amazing! I would recommend her to anyone. She was responsive, professional, warm, and made us feel very comfortable taking photos with our two week old son. Her photos captured us in a way that was natural and not posed -- and she was very gracious with two sleep deprived parents! Her photos were beautiful, and she was prompt in delivering them as promised."


"Absolutely always over the moon with Jessica’s photos. She has amazing patience for children and always always always gets the perfect shots. We’ve booked her several times and do not plan on going anywhere else. The overall experience that she provides is the best."


"I’m so happy we found Jess for our newborn photos! She’s professional, so easy to work with, and the absolute nicest person. She understands the importance of the newborn photos and captures them perfectly. I actually cried when I got our photos back they were so beautiful! 100% would recommend Jess for any and all photos!"


"Jess is unlike any other photographer I have ever worked with. She has such a gift for capturing the most precious moments, and putting those special memories to print. She is beyond easy to work with, kind, patient, and flexible. We have used her for photos from pregnancy, to birth, to newborn shoot, 6 months, one year photos and holiday photos (so far!). When we brought our son to her studio for his first shoot, she was like the baby whisperer! Her style is crisp, authentic, and unique. She really captured the essence of the tiniest moments, making breathtaking photos we now have all over our home. And in addition, she made videos from the shoots and set them to music... there are no words to describe, they are beyond heartwarming - we are so very grateful! She is responsive, and got our photos to us to quickly! I truly couldn't recommend her more highly, and look forward to her capturing more of life's special moments for us as our family grows!"


"Jess was fantastic and very professional. She went above and beyond expectations and provided numerous (A LOT) of well edited photographs from what seemed like a very quick session. It is clear she is a mom herself which put us new parents at ease. Considering the extent of our search for a newborn photographer I can honestly say we ended up with the right professional - no doubt about it! I would encourage anyone looking for in-home photos of your little ones and family to give Jess a call."


"Jessica is incredible. I highly recommend her as your newborn photographer. She provided us with a wide range of photos with multiple backgrounds and outfits. We couldn't ask for better photos to capture the memories our of little ones. I also appreciate that Jessica has an all in price - it makes it easy and is totally worth the value! We would definitely work with her again!"


"Jess photographed our family recently and she made the whole process so easy, fun, and quick (important when you have energetic littles)! She gave us the most beautiful family photos we have ever had - they really captured us as a family. Thank you Jess!!"


"Jess was very informative when I first reached out to her about photographing my newborn. I had a lot of questions and concerns due to the pandemic. She took the time to listen and work with me to assure safety without compromising the session. The newborn pics turned out better than I could have imagined. We also did family pics that day and she was super patient with my “spirited” toddler. Even those pics turned out amazing. Highly recommend her!!!"


"Jessica was incredible! She was so professional, respectful of COVID-19 safety measures (kept her mask on 100% of the time, washed her hands right away, etc), was so gentle with our baby, and was super efficient. She sent the link to our gallery within a few days, and it was very easy to access /download the photos. The photos themselves are absolutely gorgeous. She made us feel so at ease. Thank you !!!"
