Halloween Minis

October is almost over! Do you have your little ones Halloween costumes yet?! I love capturing children dressed up and letting their imaginations go wild. It is so fun to watch a little boy pretending he is a super hero or a little girl dance around as a princess. Capturing these moments is one of my favorite things to do all year. Halloween just gives children an excuse to have some fun with a new character. They are only kids for a short period of time. Capture their imagination this Halloween. The special runs the rest of the month of October. Must book before the 31st.

Birthday Girl Harper

I had a blast celebrating this little one's birthday! Her mommy put together the cutest Mini Mouse birthday party! Very creative :) I think Harper had a lot of fun too. I just can't believe I have been photographing this little one for a year! Time sure does fly! Happy Birthday Harper!

Have I ever told you how much I love clothes?!? I am a little too into fashion, to the point where my addiction drove me into working retail for many many years to get discounts! But little did I know in the midst of falling in love with every pair of jeans I folded I would make some awesome friends. I loved getting to spend my time with this little girl's mama. We became close friends over our time working together.  So it was very sad when they decided to move back to Texas once they were done with graduate school in Montgomery. I have missed seeing her and comparing our wardrobe. But was very excited to learn they were driving through town and wanted me to take pictures of their sweet baby. This is the first time I got to meet baby Kirin. I could not get over how cute she is and her hair! I love it!! Wish she lived closer so we could play. Thankfully my husband has family in Texas so we can visit often! Yay!

I love this girl! I went to high school with her momma and I can tell she is already a mini me of her. She is so full of life and love and is going to be a knock out. I hate she lives to so far away! I think she could really help bring my little girl's adventurous side out. (she needs that) :) Can't wait till we can all meet up in Memphis again to play! 

Sweet Baby Sara

I am still playing catch up on my blog. I am getting there slowly but surely. I have a ton to edit right now but for some reason have decided to start potty training my 2 year old today. I thought it might be a good time to blog between our 20 minute potty intervals. I let you know how this all goes. :) 

Awhile back I took pictures of this sweet little angel. I was so excited to meet her after taking her mommy's maternity pictures. I knew she would be a beauty! She was so good too, slept the entire session. We did not even have to take a break! (that is very rare!) I am so thrilled her momma signed her up for a first year package. Can't wait to see how she grows over the year!

The P Family

What a sweet family! I am so lucky to call them friends. The girls are so full of life and love and we had a blast running around the church grounds one Saturday morning playing and taking pictures.

Birthday Girl Betsy

I can't get enough of this cute little smile. She is A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E! Just amazes me she is already a year old! Seems like last week I was taking her 3 month pictures and now she is a big one year old.

Baby Lilly

I think Lilly is the best baby I have ever worked with! She sept the entire time... she didn't even need a lunch break! And she was oh so cute! I am excited that she is signed up for my first year package, I can't wait to see her grow and be apart of her first year of life. 

The T Family

Once again I have fallen behind on blog posting. In between editing, posting on Facebook and chasing two little girls the blog falls on the back burner. I again will try to be better because I have LOTS of sessions to share! 

Several years ago when I first moved to Montgomery I worked with this sweet mama. I have not seen her kids in years and when they showed up for pictures I could not believe how much they had  grown. It was fun to get to catch up with the family and capture their pictures.

The B Family

It is always fun to meet new families in town, especially when they have two little girls like me! I loved watching the sisters interact with each other. They are so sweet and cute to one another. Knowing how precious this age is just made it that much more fun to photograph them. Loved capturing the smiles and laughter. What a fun age!

Having a Baby!

I had the pleasure of photographing this sweet couple's maternity session. They are so excited to welcome their little girl into the world in a few short weeks. You would never know she is almost due! She is a gorgeous mommy to be!

Spring Days

I love Spring! The smell of fresh cut grass, flowers blooming, and the warm sun hitting your skin. We have had a few Spring days in Montgomery but it seems winter is holding on as long as it can this year! Maybe Easter will bring Spring days!?! Until then, I will just enjoy this cutie and his Easter excitement. Granted it was a little chilly the day we took these but we can all pretend it's warm!

Birth Stories

If you have ever met me you will quickly learn how much I LOVE to do labor and delivery photography. It is the most rewarding and amazing part of my job. I tell my husband every time I photograph one I want to go back to nursing school to become a delivery nurse, but then I quickly remember how bad at chemistry I was! It truly is photographing a miracle and I am honored to be able to be apart of so many birth stories. If you have ever thought about having your delivery photographed, do it! I promise you won't regret it! 

Below are a few photos I did in January. Due to the privacy of this very special moment I don't share too many photos of delivery on my blog, but if you are interested in seeing more please email me at bigleapsphoto@gmail.com


I just realized how many hits my blog is getting! I am sorry I have been bad about updating it but I promise to do better! To view more current work please follow my Facebook page, Big Leaps Photography by Jessica.


Walk for Life

There is nothing more rewarding then to see your photos being used for such a great cause! If you live in the Montgomery area please join us May 4th for the Save-A-Life Walk for Life. It is a great organization and I am thrilled to be a little part of it.
