Welcome back!!!

Hello and welcome back to Jessica’s Visions Photography!!

I have been MIA for quite a few years due to many reasons. Most kept me pretty busy and away from the photography world, but I am back and ready to start booking sessions and weddings for the fall season and beyond!

I took time off when I had my 7th and 8th little baby girls. Then in September of 2014, the most unimaginable and heart-breaking tragedy happened and we had to say goodbye to our precious boy, Jaydan Anthony! His loss was beyond devastating. Grief is still very much a part of our lives these days, but as time goes on, the more used to the pain and the loss we become.  It is no experience I ever would have expected nor would I wish it for any parent.  The hardest part is watching my other children suffer from such a loss and knowing there is nothing I can say or do to help fix that for them.  All I can do is pray that God can bring them healing and peace in those times they need it.

Last year my husband and I separated and eventually divorced early this year.  So, as you can imagine, there have been some big changes in my life.

I have wanted to get back here many times, but I couldn’t seem to bring myself to blog about all these changes. It just sorta makes them all so final seeing them in text on a page.  Maybe I will one day have the courage and strength to talk about it here, but for now this is the best that I can do.


On a MUCH sweeter note, I am now a GRANDMA!!!! And I will share her photos next! I also have 2 new son-in-laws to add to our crew! I am blessed!


I have never even shared here on the blog our youngest baby girl so I will post a few photos of her and all her cute goodness! She’s a sweet and sorta spicy lil 4 year old now!

I would LOVE to hear from YOU! How have you all been? What are some of the changes that have happened in your lives?  Leave a comment or shoot me an email at


Sweet Kolton and His Family ~Kalispell, Montana Family Portrait Photographer

My Beautiful Cousin and her adorable family came down from Idaho for a visit last month and she had asked me if she could schedule a photo session while they were here! :)  Of course I was super excited to see them and photograph them, especially since this was the first time I had gotten a chance to meet her lil boy, Kolton! He is such a smiley baby!!! I don’t think I have ever seen a baby that young smile so much in my life!! SOOOO CUTE!! Anyways, here is a sneak peek of some of my favorites from our session…..Enjoy! :)

We snuck off down the road for a few of Kolton’s Mommy and Daddy together too! :)

I love this one….J’s eyes are so AMAZING!!!

Spring is here!!! Photo Share~Redding California Baby Photographer

Hello Friends, I know I have been MIA for quite sometime and I am here to to say Hello and to catch up on sharing photos from the last couple of months.  I am so ready for Spring and Sunshine..I cannot wait to get out and get some sessions done and some personal photos as well!

I have big plans for Jessica’s Visions the blog, websites etc so please excuse the mess while we re-decorate here! It will take some time, but I am hoping to have it all done before Christmas…haha..okay well, before summer is here anyways.

My baby girl is now almost 8 months old and getting bigger and smarter everyday!  I thought I would start off this post with a few images of her.  Our family is so immensely blessed by this little girl, she brings so much joy to our lives.

She even has two new teeth to show off! :)

Next I am sharing some photos from my dear niece and her adorable family…

Thank you,

with love, Jess
