Hey, I’m Jess!
I’m an Austin family photographer and I am thrilled you found me. Besides being a passionate photographer – I’m also a wife, a mama of two, and I take food a little too seriously. Where’s the queso?
So yeah, I was the little girl who was always begging for another disposable camera; remember those? Then it was a little point and shoot digital – I carried that tiny silver camera around everywhere! 
But it truly wasn’t until becoming a mother, when I realized how important pictures were. So I picked up a camera (a real one this time) in 2016 and haven’t put it down since. So you could say, becoming a mother changed my life (ha, shocker!).

"Jessica is absolute magic with her lens! I will forever treasure the photos she captured of my three children. She has a gift for seeing the spirit of everyone she photographs and documenting each child’s individuality. I don’t know how she does it!" - A. Niebuhr

The amount of experience gained since starting in 2016, I am proud to say that my prices are a direct reflection of the quality of work that you will receive. As an Austin family & newborn photographer, I constantly strive to invest in the best equipment, education, and experiences that will continue to elevate all aspects of The Blackbird Flies. Every year I will continue to become a better version of the photographer I am to guarantee photographs that you will cherish forever.

I would also love to see you on our Facebook page, so please follow along so you don’t miss out on any promotional offers (like mini sessions) or discounted last-minute cancellations.

As a seasoned family photographer, I have learned that there is one common denominator in photographs — it is love.

C'mon, let's chat!

"Jessica is an absolute gem to work with! She made us feel relaxed and comfortable. Her style is so beautiful. We couldn't be happier with the images we got from our session and we are excited to work with her in the future."
