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 ! 

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 […]

  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 […]

Okay so if you read my previous post from my sister, Kristan’s Maternity Session (link here)  you’ll see I get a little sappy about this sweet new chapter in her life and how amazing she looked with her little bump! But now the bump is gone and our sweet Lexi is here! I was fortunate […]

Okay, guys let’s be honest here isn’t this family portrait everything? So just a few months prior to this, I met The Badillo Family for the first time. Roxanne was several months pregnant with Rhyder and I immediately loved these guys! Rusty & Roxanne are the sweetest couple and their son, Logan is a ham! […]

Oh dear was February as busy month for me! I had taken a moment or two away from my close friends and clients and was able to be there for my family. My sister, Kristan you can read more of her post in my blog had a child along with my Sister-in-law, Lesley. Yep! That’s […]

Okay guys, so life has been nothing short of crazy. In the last couple of months I was able to experience a new chapter in life for my sister, Kristan and my brother in law, Jonathan. THEY ARE PARENTS! Yes, I said it! In the cold month of January, we went out at the Family […]

Savannah Grace is finally here! Yay!! I am so excited to share this one of a kind, Newborn Lifestyle Session with y’all today. It’s sheer perfection as Lifestyle Newborns allow for parents to play a significant role in the session, meaning more amazing sweet moments that I can capture. I absolutely adore this sweet baby […]

The Pena Family is expecting a baby girl this December and I couldn’t be happier for these guys as they await the arrival of sweet baby Leah. Everyone is unconditionally in love with this unborn child as you could see Elizabeth glow when she arrived to the cattle ranch. Elizabeth & Phillip’s little girls, Delilah […]

      Our family could not be any more excited for the welcoming of this sweet little girl! My sister, Kristan and her husband, Jonathan couldn’t be any more excited and blessed to be welcoming a baby girl this coming February. Our hearts are so full and my son, Parker is excited to be […]

A house is so much more than a place where we unload our groceries, eat, cook, sleep, or watch endless hours of Grey’s Anatomy on Netflix. It’s home. Our homes are where we can be our most genuine selves, wear mismatch pj’s, crank up the pandora and use a wooden spoon to have your own […]
