My husband and I wanted to document the arrival of our first child, but were frustrated by the dearth of quality photographers who produced stunning yet elegant and tasteful work. We almost gave up on newborn photos altogether to avoid a cheesy portfolio of photos that cost an arm and a leg. Not only were we fortunate to stumble upon Jen's work via local Google search, but we were fortunate enough to have such a talented artist practically in our own backyard!
Jen was warm and professional from start to finish. I especially appreciated that she was upfront about her fees, as many photographers make it confusing and unclear what is and is not included, leaving you with an exorbitant sitting fee and no photos to show for it. In fact, I found her pricing to be quite fair, and in-line with market rates. I was also grateful for her creation of a welcoming, relaxed and cozy environment for the shoot. She took great care to make us all feel comfortable and patiently took as much time as necessary to get just the right shots. She handled my 6-day-old baby with great care and love, and made us all feel right at home. Jen is clearly highly experienced, and knew exactly the right techniques to elicit the perfect poses and expressions from our newborn. She also has clearly invested a great deal in an extensive wardrobe of hats, scarves, throws, baskets and other accessories that bring her photos to life.
Within 1 week we had the most timeless and stunning collection of digital photos of our baby girl that we will cherish for a lifetime. I cannot recommend Jen Seelye highly enough. Book an appointment if you can; you will be thrilled you did.
