High School Senior Session

My family has been using Jeanne at Photo Essence for years now. She has an excellent eye for details and is amazing to work with. She goes above & beyond for her clients working to get great shots ranging from the traditional to the more creative images. Jeanne delivers so many great images to choose from it can be hard to pick our favorites!

We count on Jeanne for keeping our children’s headshots up to date, family photos and most recently for our daughter’s Senior Portraits. We are very happy to refer Photo Essence to all our friends & family and plan to continue seeing Jeanne throughout the rest of our family milestones.

Engagement Session

We used Jeanne at Photo Essence for our engagement session and found her to be passionate about her photography and it truly shows in our pictures.

Jeanne was genuinely kind & so helpful right from the beginning. Asking us what we like and dislike, what type of shots did we need to have or avoid. Covering information such as what our insecurities are helped put my fiancé and I at ease. During our shoot, she continued to help us feel comfortable as she listened to what we wanted out of our session and was reassuring us things were going well as she showed us images throughout the session.

Her experience & knowledge made our Imaginations come to LIFE! Our beautiful images were delivered very quickly and the process from beginning to end was so easy... everything was amazing! I highly recommend using Photo Essence Photography, you will not regret it.

High School Senior Session

I had no hesitations choosing Jeanne to shoot my senior portraits. I took the obligatory photos for the school yearbook with some other studio but I knew I wanted images that were exciting & fun.

The whole process was comfortable and stress free but I really love how easily she took simple posing and places and made them look magazine worthy. She had so many great ideas and let me incorporate my prom dress AND boyfriend. That was extra special since we didn’t get to have our prom due to the pandemic but now I have amazing photos that will remind me of my high school years.

Family Session

From start to finish, my families entire experience with Jeanne was nothing short of amazing. She is extremely responsive and goes above and beyond to make sure that her clients have the most comfortable photoshoot experience. She was very quick to get my pictures back to me. She has a great eye for detail...and every photo was beautifully done. In addition to all of this, she is so kind. You will instantly feel at ease when working with her. My 5 year old daughter can be difficult to photograph but Jeanne was patient and able to capture her perfectly. And I was able to turn the photos into beautiful canvas to give to family as memorable Christmas gifts! Her work speaks for itself and I will cherish my photos forever! Thank you, Jeanne!
