A Little About The Photographer

Hi, I’m Jess! Thanks for checking out Triple the Sugar Photography!

Here are some behind-the-scenes shots (from my awesome clients) and a quick “FAQ” :)

How long have you been in business? 

I started in 2013 offering family sessions, then after photographing a couple hundred babies I decided to specialize in maternity, newborns, and baby’s first year.

How would you describe your style? 

Simple, minimal, clean, timeless. I focus on the newborn and try not use anything that’s going to overpower those sweet baby features.

I want my little clients to grow up and look at their photos years down the road and love seeing what they looked like during their very first days.

Do you take photographs in the client’s home, or in a studio?

I shoot on location only. It’s less stressful and more comfortable for parents to be in their own house, especially when they’re just getting home from the hospital and mom is still recovering.

It’s challenging, but I really enjoy shooting in a new place every session … keeps it fresh and exciting!

How many times have babies spit up on you?

Spit up on, not very often … pooped and peed on all the time!

Do you have kids?

Yes! We have three girls … they’re turning 7, 9 and 11 this year.

I named my business Triple the Sugar after them.

You have a real knack with babies, have you always been this way?

I’ve always loved babies. I grew up in a big family, the oldest of 5 kids and always helped look after my younger brother and sisters.

After having 3 babies of my own I was infatuated with pregnancy and newborns. I’m not sure why, but it just comes naturally to me – maybe it’s my silver granny hair! :)

So can we ask, what’s up with your hair?  

I get a lot of compliments (thank you!) and questions about my hair color … I found the first strands of silver when I was 15 and by age 35 my head was almost completely silver/gray/white!

What else should we know about you?

I love my family, friends, coffee, eating out, jeans, flip flops, movies, wine, dancing, makeup, football, and traveling. I live with my husband and kids in Livermore CA and enjoy working all over the Bay Area.


Thanks for stopping by, shoot me an email, I’d be happy to hear from you!
