Hi!  I’m Jessica Holmes, a professional portrait photographer based in Yorba Linda, CA and serving much of Orange County.  I focus on maternity, newborn, child and family portraits.  I am an on-location natural light photographer which serves well to my natural, simple, rustic and timeless style.  While I may use props in some of my photographs (baskets and headbands for newborns or a bright chair for a children’s session) to add interest, my main focus is always on my subject and letting their personality shine through.  I am incredibly passionate about what I do.  I love taking photographs with every fiber of my being and my hope is that it comes across in my images.  Photographs are an important visually tangible memory for your family to have to pass down from generation to generation and I am honored to create a piece of art for your family to cherish for years to come.

Get To Know ME!

I grew up in the Boston area.
I lived in New York City for almost 8 years.
I worked in the music industry for 6 years.
My husband and I met at my best friend’s wedding.
Many of my Christmas lists when I was a child consisted of only a few things: glitter, construction paper, glue, pipe cleaners and markers.
I cannot function without my morning cup of coffee.  It’s hard for me to form sentences without my A.M. caffeine.
I love, love, love music.
I love running on my local trails.
Paris is my favorite city.  It feels like home and I want to retire there someday.
This self proclaimed city girl loves to go camping.
I love Sunday dinners with my husband, my best friend and her family.
My favorite colors are black & white.
I’m a huge Doctor Who fan.  My husband and I are currently in the process of watching all of the old episodes…starting from 1963!
I make an amazing mac & cheese.
I paint my nails once a week (which means I have an insane nail polish collection).
I am a lover of fashion and fashion magazines.

I’m so happy you’ve had the chance to learn a little bit about me.  If you are interested in booking a session, please use the contact form above and I look forward to getting to know you!
