I'm  a Fine Art Newborn and Family Photographer from right here in Houston, TX. I have spent years perfecting my skills as a photographer with a special interest in maternity, newborn, and following your baby’s milestones through the first year. My passion for photography is only second to my passion for my family. I have 5 kids and a loving husband who I spend my time off with. My love for family helps me connect with my clients by understanding their needs and desires. I enjoy all the simple things in life and am always up for a good laugh. I offer a one of a kind experience and provide timeless memories for you to hold. I am devoted to leaving my clients with a smile.

Get to know me

In the heart of Bellaire Houston, you can find a warm and comfortable place to relax while I photograph your family. With many props, gowns, and outfit options to adorn your family on their photo shoot. This photo session is custom to you and your needs. Come visit me! I would love to have you.

The studio

Growing up my family traveled on the road a lot. I grew up in Chicago and we would come to Houston all the time. I have beautiful memories of those roadtrips. Now, being a family of 5 many think we don't leave the house much but you'd be surprised how many miles are on my SUV!!! We've done sooo many road trips and I hope my children will remember them fondly. Here's a picture of us in Cancun, we didn't drive there but it was a great trip too. 


“I absolutely LOVE working with Joyful Sound Photography! I used them for both my maternity and newborn photos and they couldn’t have turned out more perfect. She has a beautiful studio with a variety of dresses in her wardrobe you can choose from. Jessica is also amazing at making you feel comfortable! My husband and I need a lot of direction when we take photos and Jessica is always so patient and kind. I can’t wait to book my next session and I highly recommend if you want beautiful timeless photos!”

"Jessica's work is remarkable! Her studio is exquisite, and the client wardrobe she provides is so helpful for family portraits! The heirloom photos she did of my 2 year old were so beautiful they brought me to tears! She recently did a mommy and me session and the photos with my daughter will always be a treasure! Also, she is so warm and welcoming, photos are never a stressful event!"

I have used Joyful Sound Photography now three times. Two maternity sessions and a newborn photography session. I have been beyond happy with the whole process. Mrs. Jessica is so professional and really has an eye for photography. She somehow managed to get amazing photos of me and my two and half year old who usually won’t smile for any photos. I am so beyond pleased and recommend her highly!
