“Jessica Doll took my daughters 6 month baby pictures. She invited us to her family’s house and took the photos in her yard. They turned out GREAT, the outdoor setting was perfect, she had great ideas for the themes of the shots and she was very professional. Jessica was very creative and patient with my little one. She posted my pictures for viewing promptly and did an amazing job! I highly recommend Doll Studios for any of your photography needs.”

“You can trust Jessica Doll.You can trust her with your daughter, son, or in my case, my three little nieces and my bf’s young cousin.You can trust her photography skills. She has an uncanny ability to take fantastic photos of the people you love.
She is also a wonderful person to work with. I like to plan and talk at the last minute and Jessica was very communicative and helpful throughout the entire time before the shoot.
I would love to hire her again in the future, IF she has any weekend spots open. I expect she will be getting very busy very soon, because she is so good at what she does! Thank you Jessica! ”

“I’ve been a fan of Jessica’s work ever since she was in the fashion/modeling industry, so I was very excited when she ventured off into children’s photography. My husband and I just had our first child back in January of this year and we were very blessed and excited to have our family pictures taken by her last month. She met us at park local to both her and my family on a gorgeous Saturday morning. I was impressed with how she was able to entertain and hold our 4-month-old’s attention for a couple of hours, especially since he was up and out way earlier than what he was used to. Her being able to capture the very candid and natural moments of my family enjoying ourselves on a beautiful spring day touches us dearly since this is me and my husband’s first times’ being parents. The pictures turned out nicer and with so much more meaning than the stiff and posed pictures we’ve taken at mall studios in the past. She also provides flawless customer service from the beginning when you first consult with her, to the very end when you order which pictures you want to buy. I definitely recommend her to anyone wanting to capture their little ones’ finer moments in life. My family can’t wait to work with her again!”

“Jessica has been gracious enough to do 2 photo shoots for our family: a maternity/family shoot in an outdoor setting, and a photo shoot of my newborn son in our home. We were off-the-wall impressed with the results of both. Jessica has an eye for beautiful settings, and she works magic with children, resulting in awesome poses and stunning shots. Jessica came prepared and was very easy to talk to, and was open to our suggestions but also provided her own advice in terms of poses/positions/settings. Thank you, Jessica, for being an amazing photographer and providing our family with memories for years to come!”

“I am from Arkansas and hired Jessica to fly here and shoot my 2 year old son. He was very cranky and not wanting to cooperate and even though Jessica was running on just a couple of hours of sleep straight off the plane she was very patient and calm with him during the entire shoot! She got some really great shots of him and am very pleased with all of them!
I totally recommend her and would use her again.”
-Kendra T., Jonesboro, AR
“Jessica produced beautiful photos of my children. It is no easy feat to photograph an active 3 yr old and 6 mos. old, and she did a fabulous job! Jessica was a pro from start to finish – finding the perfect (yet convenient) outdoor location, photographing my boys, and beautiful editing, which all combined for outstanding photographs! Jessica has a wonderful working style. She was great at reading the personalities of my kids and adaptable to their mood changes during the shoot — a critical skill for a photographer that works with young children!”
-Jane H., Santa Clara, CA
“Jessica got some great shots of my kids and group shots of the whole family. She has a real eye for framing and good timing to get the right expressions on everyone. I definitely recommend her work!”

“Jessica Doll is a very talented and professional photographer that we would highly recommend to all of our family and friends! She recently took some amazing pictures of our newborn son when he was only a few days old. She came to our house and provided all props which was not only convenient for us but more importantly, safe for our little guy who was still so susceptible to germs. This also allowed us to capture those studio quality photographs in the comfort of our home which was a huge plus!
When my husband and I were able to view the final photos, we were both blown away with the beautiful shots she was able to capture. We will treasure those photos for years to come and look forward to working with Jessica again in the future.”
– Michelle S., Santa Clara, CA
“We have now used Jessica Doll twice to photograph our infant daughter and plan on using her for upcoming milestone events and birthdays. Jessica has an artistic eye to frame a photo just right. Her photos appear to capture life’s moments instead of traditional poses. She has a very calm and patient demeanor which is crucial when photographing babies and small children. We were really impressed with her quick turnaround of posting the proofs online and delivering the final CD.
We recommend Jessica to anyone who listens. The quality of the photos speak for themselves.”

I just had my third son and needed someone to photograph him before he got too big. Most moms schedule photo sessions *before* they have their kids, but alas, I am not that organized. Thus, I called Jessica with a request that she come as soon as possible and she found time within the week.
She showed up on time and prepared and was very patient working with my newborn and me. After she took some great shots of the babe, we corralled the other two boys (ages 2 and 3) and tried to get some shots of all three. I was explaining to her that I understand that it’s really hard to get a shot of three kids, three and under, but she did it! She got quite a few good shots of all three of them together and I was so pleased. These are probably the only shots of them all looking in one direction, clean, and cute, that I’ll have for quite a while.

We discovered Jessica Doll (yes, that is her real last name) by searching on Google. We trusted out gut instinct after checking out her website and we ended up really happy with her. She was ready to go when we were (nursed a little bit before we started) and she has a natural way with babies. Our little one did not fuss once the entire time.
The session didn’t feel rushed. We just ended it when we felt we had enough good shots.
Her studio is quaint and she has also any hat/blanket combo you can imagine.
I perused these Yelp reviews and they ARE NOT representative of our experience. It appears that all the negative reviewers bought the Groupon deal for a 30 minute session. People – you get what you pay for. If you’re just paying for 30 minutes, of course you’re going to feel rushed.
We just got our proofs back and are reviewing them now…so far we’re very happy with the Jessica Doll.

Jessica shot newborn pics of our 2nd child and we are so happy with everything! She has a way we newborns, our daughter didn’t have a single meltdown! Jessica was super sweet, made the shoot go by very smoothly and sent the proofs over in a timely manner. We are so happy with the shots and only wish we knew her when our first born was a newborn!
