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 ! 

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 […]

  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 […]

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 […]

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 excitement that a child brings to a family is such a heart-warming experience, I was honored to witness the happiness and anticipation that the Badillo Family has for Baby Rhyder and it was beyond beautiful. Rusty, Roxanne, & Logan were amazing to photograph in the midst of a summer sunset, the sun was glowing […]

"Jessicas passion for photography radiated from her soul the moment I met her. When looking for a photographer, We decided that we would call a few to get a feel for the type of people they were and if they (the photographer) would fit into what we were looking for in our wedding vendors. We saw your work, we LOVED your work, but we didn’t know you. From our first conversation up until now you made us feel like you were meant to be apart of our big day! Day of you made me feel like the prettiest bride to ever walk this planet! Your photos blew my husband (I love saying “husband”) away! You captured the uniqueness and beauty of us, our surroundings and our guest! This review, nor my “thank you”, will ever be enough to show you how grateful we are for your talent!"

"I was so lucky to have Jessica as my photographer. I am absolutely thrilled with my engagement and wedding photos. The first time I spoke to her on the phone, I immediately liked her. It was important to me for me to actually LIKE my photographer because you really do spend a lot of time with them on one of the most important days in your life. The reason it is so important to be comfortable around them is because IT WILL show in your face if you’re not. My husband and I really enjoyed our photoshoots with Jessica. It can be kinda awkward to take a lot of photos but she is so funny and goofy that she kept both of us laughing and relaxed. As for the photos, they are BEAUTIFUL. Seriously, these are the nicest pictures anyone has taken of me. The pictures are light, bright, and airy. I feel like a beautiful bride when I look at them. They are so nice in fact, that the company that made my wedding dress, Jasmine Bridal, has featured my photos several times! Jessica is also a really creative person and will find ways to make your photos look amazing. During our wedding reception, I was kinda tired after a LONG day but she had a great idea to do these romantic night time shots. I am SO GLAD I decided to do them. They are absolutely gorgeous. It’s hard to believe it's me and my husband! Like, that’s us?? She made us look SO GOOD! And really, that’s all you want. You want to love your pictures and be happy with them because they are an investment. I know that I’ll look at these photos many years from now and still enjoy them - that’s how happy I am with them."
