"The photos are stunning,
I have had the pleasure of working with Jody from maternity and beyond. She is not only an amazing talent but also the kindest sweetest human I know. There are no words for care she took with my newborn while also making sure I was comfortable and enjoying the process too. She is organized and her vision is beyond anything I could have ever imagined. To be able to capture my pregnancy and then again my newborn in those early days are keepsakes I will forever be grateful for.
for the care she took!"
"There are no words
Her newborn photography is unparalleled. The adorable heartwarming poses Jody achieves are elevated by her use of luxury props and accessories. At both our newborn sessions, she added special touches that made the experience comfortable and memorable for the whole family. For Maternity, while I was initially hesitant to do professional photos, I am so glad I did! She knows how to make you feel your best even if you're struggling inside. My photos honour and celebrate what my body was privileged and able to do! I don't take it for granted!
