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 ! 

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 […]

When Jana, Dana’s mother asked if I could take her daughter’s senior portraits on their home place I was ecstatic! I love ranches and farms show cased throughout South Texas and love that was meaningful to them as this was a ranch where Dana grew up feeding cattle with her Dad and probably where some […]

This early morning I am taking it all in on the farm, drinking my coffee before heading into work and waking Parker for the day. When checking on the our new Guineas I heard them “cackle” in the back yard among Alex (my niece’s horse) trying to figure these guys out.  Puzzled, he started to […]

Natalie & John, where do I even begin?! The day was so much more than a beautiful celebration but to the start of a beautiful marriage. I love that I was not only able to capture these moments but also witness every smile and every tear of joy. And if y’all know how I feel […]

  Dustin & Carol are welcoming their first child, a sweet and precious baby boy! I absolutely love this phase for new Mommy’s & Daddy’s. During our session together we talked about Brody, upcoming flutters of parenthood, and also the variety of advice (some that were downright hilarious!) given anytime someone would see Carol. It […]
