hola amigo! 

I'm Jessica, the owner of Under the Sun Photography, most days you can catch me chasing my lil' rock picking son on our family's homestead and fixing up a meal that'll stick to more than just your bones. I love everything about my rural South Texas, our heritage and way of life makes it one of the best places to live, raise a family, and practice photography! So sit back and grab a cup of coffee and feel free to scroll through my blog. 

happy trails ! 

What do I love most about maternity portraits? It’s that pause before the overwhelming joy that this little person is going to provide to a family. Pregnancy doesn’t just signify 9 months of waiting in order to have a child, it’s so much more than that. There are days your heart cannot contain the unconditional […]

Okay, y’all it’s Monday and finally catching up from our vacation to the coast this past weekend. We had an absolute blast! Parker got to experience a little bit of everything from the beach, to swimming, and even hand-feeding deer Cheetos. We only had one hiccup with one of the deer wanting more Cheetos…which then […]

  Hey y’all! It’s Thursday which is actually my Friday today! Woo-hoo! (Insert the happy trolls from ‘Trolls’ singing “Celebrate Good Times” … I know I watch one too many cartoons as a Mama Bear ha!) So it’s Fri-YAY! And you want to know why? Our little family is headed down to our old fishing […]

Okay y’all, is it just me or did April & May feel like the time passing for one month not two? I know I am a mama bear of one, juggling work and “all the things” but in my mind I feel that in the photographer world April & May was merged into a new […]

The royal wedding may have been this past weekend, but I am still in awe over the marriage of this beautiful couple, Eliza & Bradley Dusek. This past Spring on a chilly April day these two high school sweethearts said, “I do.” Now to take this story further into consideration, this marriage was not only […]

If you’re having the quote on quote, “Case of the Mondays.” Take a look through this sweetheart’s gallery and you will forever be cured my amigo! Kylee is a diamond in a rhinestone world, she is not only GORGEOUS, but Kylee has the kindest heart. When I had the opportunity to take her Spring Senior […]

It’s a bitter-sweet time of the year, my sweet senior girls are days away from graduating from High School and taking on the next big life adventure, adulthood. It’s crazy to think that this year it has been 11 years since I have walked across the stage and received my diploma. I remember being excited […]

If you have followed me on Instagram, you’ll know that one of my passions is to support or local hometown and all it’s endeavors. Whether it’s from shopping small, fundraising for our local church needs, or our Growers & Ranchmen I love to see our hometown thrive and I want to continue this legacy through […]

It’s been a Spring full of amazing Seniors as and as each session approaches I feel for my moms! As a mother of one funny little boy,  I can totally relate to the “mom teary-eye” moments when I show them the first preview of their ‘babies’ on camera. Each of my moms do the heart […]

Can I just say one thing before I go on and on about Miss Brooke here?! I have been truly blessed to meet some of the sweetest, well-mannered, high school seniors this year! Some say the world has gone to heck but these young adults I have met are leaving their best mark. All of […]
