I'm Jessica, the owner of Under the Sun Photography, most days you can catch me chasing my lil son on our family's homestead and fixing up a meal that'll stick to more than your bones., along with baby goats by my side. 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. Sit back, grab a cup of coffee and feel free to scroll through my blog. Mi casa es su casa. 

Meet Jess

Kylee’s Senior Session | Comal River Gruene, Texas


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 Portraits I was beyond excited and her only request was that we just had to be in the water. The river is a special place for Kylee, it brings her peace and wonderful memories¬† flow to mind. Numerous vacations with her family as well as adventures, the river isn’t just a place to float it’s a place to reflect and build memories. So it was a “no-brainer” that we would make a little hike up to Gruene, TX and take in a glorious scenery and get in the water. I am so in love with these portraits and equally proud of myself for not falling in the river completely! Ha! I am so excited for what the future holds for this young woman and know Mary Hardin Baylor is going to welcome her with open arms! Go Crusaders!

P.S. Kylee is a pro in getting her way around in the river with barefeet! I had tennis shoes on and was totally¬† not graceful… at all! Ha!

When I saw this little patch of “bamboo-ish” looking stuff I completely lit up! Isn’t this gorgeous?

We couldn’t get in the water without making a little bit of a splash!

Kylee: “Jess, hold on a second, I got an idea…”

Okay y’all, when Kylee told me she had medals I didn’t realize she was basically #michaelphelpsstatus! All of her high school medals from track and cheer!

Such a giggle box! I cannot wait to see what the future holds for this sweet girl!! Congratulations Kylee I’m so proud!

Mucho Love,
