"As a family of 6, with 4 small children, getting the kids to not only look at the camera, but look good, is no small task. Jess did the most amazing family shoot for us in Highland park. The way she captured our family is so wonderful. She also took beautiful ones of me babywearing my youngest. I won't ever search for another family photographer!"

"My family loved working with Jessica for our photo shoot. She is the quintessential professional and was able to capture our two young boys' personalities and essence of our family beautifully. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a true artist."

“I spent decades finding the woman of my dreams, but I knew instantly who would capture imagery of the most important day of my life. The moment we saw the artwork from Jess Kamens, we just knew it was right. Now, we have images of our events that are so powerful, beautiful and emotional that looking at them is like reliving our event. Jess, we can't thank you enough, you're a unique artist without question.”
