The Badillo Family at Cattle Ranch in Poteet, TX

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! I had to stop photographing for a minute or two to catch my breath, from half the things he was just saying. Logan is all boy and has the cutest personality.

So when Rhyder made her arrival into this world, it was amazing to hear from them once again! I was excited to see one of my favorite families again to also meet Rhyder!

It was early February and our grass on the ranch was looking a little bare. Rusty was cracking up at the field I had chose and I had promised it was going to be more beautiful than the weeds growing in the patch here. After showing him a few sample images, he couldn’t believed how amazing they were looking! And while he was in awe I was just in awe playing with one of the cutest babies!

I absolutely love these guys and always have a blast hanging out with them. Roxanne and I talk of photography as she is a photographer herself and Rusty & I were laughing at the kiddos while we did romantic couple portraits for him and Roxanne.

I am a professional photographer, but as I reiterate to everyone I am a person first. I am going to want to visit and get to know you, and if there’s a baby around, bet your bottom dollar that I will be holding her or him on my hip playing before we are done. Until next time guys!



Forever obsessed with this sweet baby!

P.S. Doesn’t Roxanne look AMAZING?! Also try to take Mom & Dad for a moment to have Romantic Portraits of just the two of them. They’re so sweet!

This little guy is too darn cute! Oh Logan, you’re going to be a little heart breaker for sure kiddo!

So dang cute!


Mucho Love,

"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."

"I can not express how much I love our maternity pictures that Jessica took for us! Not only was she patient, but she also made it super easy to relax and have fun, which in turn, ended up giving us amazing photos and memories for a lifetime time to come. Jessica is such a sweet, kind soul and is sure to provide you with years of lasting memories of your family and life's most important milestones!! Thank you Jessica."
