maternity & newborn

JAC Photography is your one-stop shop for all things family portraits.

Based out of Calgary, AB, we specialize in many of a family’s most important milestones. From new additions to the classic family portrait and everything in between. 

Newborn photography built JAC Photography’s reputation. Jody Ann has spent over 15 years honing her skills in properly and safely posing newborn babies, including using proper equipment, luxury props and wraps in a rainbow of colours along with tried and true soothing techniques. Sessions last 2-3 hours and are personalized to your newborn, making every shoot uniquely exclusive.

"We fell a little more in love that day, honestly."

Newborn sessions are conducted Monday-Friday at 10:30am within the first 6-12 days of life (barring a longer hospital stay) as that pose-able, sleepy stage is quick to pass.  You also have the option to bundle a custom maternity session into your package with substantial savings.
Make sure to book your shoot as soon as you know your due date to secure your spot as we only schedule a small amount of sessions per month to give each client an exceptional experience.


One day, it seems you blink and your little infant has become a sitting, laughing, babbling human. Our 45-minute Milestone Sessions are a wonderful way to capture this life-changing event and hold on to that brief moment in time before you wake up to a walking, running, mischievous toddler full of wonder.
Or, you can also use this session package for the ever-popular “Cake Smash” photos celebrating their birthday. Package options can include a custom cake or bring your own!

"Gorgeous photography that our family will cherish forever!"

Our most versatile offering. Child sessions are a chance to really let your kiddo’s personality shine through! We prefer to call these “All about ME” sessions because we truly want to showcase who they are. Every session is customized to the subject, whether you want simple portraits of just THEM, a magical fantasy incorporating their current LOVES or even a special event such as high school graduation. Contact us today to create a beautiful piece of art as limitless as your child.

"The results were even more exceptional than we could have imagined."


We are gonna bring fun and games to your session. We aren’t your typical stiff and stand there portraits. While we will always ensure you have that classic - everyone looking at the camera - shot for your mantle, we promise you we will have all the fun in showing your family’s relationship. The sweet snuggles, the belly laughs and everything in between. We want to showcase the connection within your family, not the connection with my camera. Consider this your permission to not feel awkward staring blankly ahead!

We are going to play, have fun, get the twirls and tickles and giggles. Every family session will begin with a “getting to know you” questionnaire so I can learn who you are as a unit and individually. Whether you enjoy downtown city scapes or wide open fields, what makes your kiddos tick and what your fave pastimes are together. Then, once I have a feel for your style, we will create a custom style board with shoppable links, items from your own wardrobe and even some of my own stash for your cohesive session look. We believe every family is unique and that’s why we don’t carry a huge client closet but rather, help you every step of the way to find a look that is elevated but truly your style. 

Family sessions are completed outdoors during the months of April-October, Monday through Friday and up to two hours before sunset for that creamy, dreamy, gorgeous glow that we are known for. 

"It's more than just getting your picture taken when you work with Jody, we always remember how much we laughed. "
