Meet sweet and adorable little Mason. This session was a mini newborn session. These in-home newborn mini sessions are quickly becoming some of my favorite to shoot! We do just a few simple set-ups with baby only, yet clients still get a diverse gallery. These sessions are great for those who don’t want family or sibling images or who just want “a few” pictures of baby. You can clearly see you get more then a few images, but that is besides the point. I hope you enjoy this sweet baby boy as much as i enjoyed photographing him. He slept the whole time. Newborn Mini sessions are 30 min. I come to you and you receive 5 digital downloads for $200. each additional digital is $15 each.
A.. is ONE yr old!! ! The last time I saw this little guy was for his newborn session, and look how he's grown! He still has that same precious smile. He was a little shy at first but soon opened up and gave me some great smiles.
The weather was just perfect on Libby hill for his ONE year session. We had to reschedule the shoot a few times due to rain so it was a pleasant surprise that the weather cooperated.
First year plans are the best! I look forward to documenting this little guys first year. I bring the studio to you so you don’t have to leave the comfort of your home. The Grow with me package has three sessions included if you would like to add additional sessions there will be a fee. These sessions can be the Maternity, Newborn and ONE yr. Other options. Newborn, sitter around 6 months and ONE year. If you would like to book a session please do so on my website.
Meet Asa, This little guy was just so calm for his almost newborn session . He was 1 month old and just so adorable. He loved to be swaddled and fell asleep but once the swaddle came off he was awake again but just looking around. I did get a few images of him sound asleep. What a handsome little man with that full head of hair! Enjoy!
Happy National Rainbow Baby Day! If you're not familiar with the term, a "rainbow baby" is a child born after a miscarriage, stillbirth or the passing away of an infant. These babies signify hope and healing after a loss and for many parents, these babies are "the rainbow after the storm"
I haven't shared the story of my stillbirth publicly but it was a devastating and deeply profound loss. When I found out I was pregnant again I was absolutely terrified but my little Noah arrived safe and sound and has changed my life in the most incredible ways. I will never forget ^Gavin^ my baby that came before him but for me Noah is definitely a beautiful , beaming rainbow of light.
There is still a lot of stigma around miscarriage and stillbirth so I believe it's important that we share our stories in hopes of showing other parents who are grieving that they are not alone and that there is hope. Sending love and light to all of you Mamas and Daddies out there still waiting for their own rainbow baby to arrive. but for me Noah is definitely a beautiful beaming rainbow of light.
I have attached a few examples of the rainbow babies I have photographed.
Can you believe that the holidays are almost here? Where did this year go? Jacki G. Photography will be hosting Santa Mini sessions this fall! If you’re looking for an easy going, line-free Santa portrait, these Santa mini-sessions are for you! I’m all about making things easy for my families! I know how hard it can be to get out to the mall and wait and line. Let’s take that stress out of your Santa portraits this year and have them done with as much fun as possible!
The 2019 Santa Mini Session Details
Santa will be coming to my studio on Sunday November 17th. Santa Mini Sessions will be held from 10am-12pm. Each family (kids only) will have 10 minutes with Santa. He will have a book to read, and can sneak up behind kids who aren’t so sure! One of my favorite things is the moment they first notice Santa! It can be excitement or tears, you just never know! I will do my best to try to capture smiles and the tears that are so typical of Santa pictures and toddlers!
Your Santa session will come with 5 high resolution digital images and the option to purchase additional files when you receive your gallery.

I have reserved the first few sessions for newborns and children with special needs who may thrive with a bit fewer people around. If you fit in this category, please contact me.
Price: $140 for 15 min and you get 5 digital downloads
Deposit: $70. A deposit is due at the time of booking to hold your spot.
Introducing sweet little Alex. I photographed his sister a few years ago. She was such a great big sister during the session. Here are some of my favorites from their in home newborn session!
Meet newborn Kerrigan. He is a beautiful little guy and slept like a champ for his newborn session. He made the cutest little faces while he slept! We used a new blue backdrop and wire bed for his session.
This handsome little fella took a couple minutes to warm up to the cake smashing, but once he figured out it was fun he definitely gave us some great smiles! I have been photographing this guy from birth so I know that once he smiles they are camera worthy and oh so adorable!
Twins are always fun to photograph. I travel to your home and bring the studio to you. The biggest challenge is getting them to sleep at the same time. I typically start with the sleepiest twin for their solo images while a parent is getting the other to sleep. Then I bring them together for sibling images, and finish up with the other twin’s solo images. I really enjoy working with twin families, and have so much respect for parents with twins! Having ONE newborn is challenging, so I can’t imagine what it’s like to have two!
Anthony & Cole are fraternal twins who could not be more different, Anthony is tiny and delicate, about 5 lbs and his brother Cole has about 1.5 pounds heavier. It was so funny to see the two of them next to each other! I just love how genetics work out with siblings sometimes.
After I finished photographing the babies, we moved on to the parent and family portion. There are lots of variations with two newborns that we’ll walk through, and I’ll assess your comfort level in how you hold them. Baby safety is the top priority , , so we won’t place babies in potentially risky positions even in your arms. I am always checking with you to make sure you feel that your baby is secure and that you have a good hold on them. We’ll be in constant communication during our time together about how you’re feeling and if you need a break to sit down and rest. Postpartum recovery is a process, and it’s normal to feel extra tired or to become a bit light headed after standing for a while. A six pound baby might not feel so heavy at first, but can feel like an anvil after ten minutes for a new mom.
Enjoy just a few of my favorite images from Anthony & Cole’s newborn session!
Welcome to the world Baby Jack ! Sending lots of love and big congratulations to these proud parents and newly promoted big sister. Thank you for having me document this special time in your lives!
Sharing this sweet little babe on the blog today. Nothing beats newborn photography for me, this is my favorite type of photography...Just the newness of the little one and the excitement to document a new addition to a family is so special to me. I am so thankful for every set of new parents that allow me into their homes to photograph their new baby. Here are my favorites from this session.
I first worked with Mercedes and Ryan for their first maternity session and newborn session with their first daughter. I was thrilled to hear from Mercedes again letting me know she was pregnant with her second child, a baby girl. They loved their experience with us and wanted to work with us again for her new daughters session. I absolutely love seeing my clients throughout the years for different sessions as their family and children grow.
Since Mercedes had worked with us previously, she knew exactly what to expect from our time together.
Baby A. was a great sleeper and BIG sister M. was only 17 months old but made my job look easy photographing them both.
Sharing this adorable newborn and family session. I often get questions if family pictures are included in a newborn session. My Deluxe Newborn session is ideal for a few parent poses/lifestyle and sibling portraits. Nothing is sweeter than those smiles coming out when looking down at a new baby. Excited to share just a handful of these images.
Wow! What a year 2017 has been. Thank you to all the families i had the privilege to photograph. Here is a quick peek of the sessions this past year. I can't wait to see you all in 2018.
This sweet little boy was a dreamboat for his newborn session! I think that his family images might be some of my most favorite ever! He already has Mommy wrapped around his finger.
I am so blessed to be able to share in these special moments with so many families!
My word what a beautiful baby boy! He was such a good sleeper and made newborn photography look easy. I'm completely in love with how his gallery turned out. I hope you enjoy the sneak peek.

How cute are these two ONE yr old twins. They were just the cutest and loved their cake. Enjoy the sneak peek. Babies are such a blessings and having twins is double the miracle. Enjoy the sneak peek.
Baby Josiah is ONE!! I cannot believe it's been a year since his newborn session. I photographed his milestones, from newborn to just holding his head up to learning to sit on his own, to pulling himself to a standing position and now walking...sweet memories his parents will charish forever.
