"Jennifer Blakeley was the perfect choice for our son's first photographs. She is an incredibly talented photographer, with the ability to capture this special time, in a beautiful and memorable way. The soft colours, the soothing music, and the warmth of her studio, made our session very comfortable. She was very gentle, and handled our son as if he were her own, and we felt completely at ease the entire time. Jennifer is very professional, but also sweet and friendly, which made her an absolute pleasure to work with. The photos of our son are truly breathtaking, and will be cherished forever. We have, and will continue to recommend her to everyone!"

"We knew as soon as we saw Jennifer's work that she was the photographer for us. We are in love with her pictures, and highly recommend her to friends and family. Leading up to the session, Jennifer was wonderful to work with. She walked us through the whole process, and the day of the session we were able to sit back, and relax - and watch her work with our daughter who was only 5 days old. Jennifer is so gentle, and caring as any mother would be. We absolutely recommend Jennifer to anyone looking to hire a newborn photographer, we are so happy with our pictures from the session and we will treasure them forever!"

"Jen was an absolute wonder to work with for our little Oliver's newborn session! She was a total professional and showed great care for her little "client". We quickly trusted her and it was obvious she was very confident and experienced. She was like a magician positioning him into all of the cute little poses, reassuring us that he was safe, and keeping our very lively little one calm and happy.
Our photos turned out better than we ever could have hoped for! She captured his tiny little fingers and toes, and even the little faces that he makes. She was patient and took the time to really let his personality shine through!
We will be back to see Jen again and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for creative quality photos of their little ones!"

"Jennifer Blakeley is, without a doubt the photographer to trust with completing your newborn photographs. The quality of the photos will undoubtedly be outstanding, but just as importantly, Jennifer makes the entire process a very comfortable one. Considering taking our tiny newborn infant out of our home for photos was initially daunting to us first-time parents. Thankfully, the experience proved to be extremely enjoyable and comfortable thanks to Jennifer's calm, professional demeanour. She sincerely seemed to understand when we showed up a little late (getting out the door with a newborn proved to be a challenge for us initially). During the session my husband and I were amazed by her unique ability to keep our 6 day old son asleep, calm and comfortable while safely and cautiously posing him for the most perfect photos. We learned first hand that day how incredibly talented Jennifer is and what a delicate art newborn photography really is. When we left her studio we were so excited "

"Being the first time I had newborn pictures taken, I couldn't have imagined the time and patience that goes into getting a newborn positioned and photographed. Jennifer was amazing! She took such good care of my little girl and captured amazing shots. I can't say enough positive things about her talent. You only have one chance to capture these precious memories. It sounds so cliche, but I can't believe how quickly my baby is growing. Thank you Jennifer for capturing such meaningful images!"
