I live with my husband, 3 kids, and dog in Berks County on the outskirts of Philadelphia. When I am not photographing sweet moments, I love to read, decorate my home, and run.
I am a photographer with a focus on capturing the special moments during the years of life where families grow. I love to capture both posed and candid moments during all of my sessions and edit to produce timeless, classic photos that you can have hanging on your walls for the next 40+ years. From the time I was a little girl I have loved photography and used to take landscape photos at our family cabin with my film camera. I initially started my photography business because being a business owner appealed to me and I loved photography. The longer I run my business, the more in love I become with working with people to create beautiful moments that become captured memories.

Hey, I'm Jess!
Here's a snapshot into my world.
A Little Behind The Scenes Of My Life
Since I was a little kid, my favorite place in the world to travel to was the beach. To this day, I still love trips to the beach and I LOVE that my husband and I have made it a family tradition to go to the Outer Banks in North Carolina at least once a year with our kids!

My favorite people in the world are my husband and kids. I am lucky enough to have 3 caring and cute kids that have helped me see the magic in the little things in life.
My Favorite Things
Chester County, PennsylvaniA
Jess has photographed several milestone events in our family life, including our engagement photos, family photos, and newborn photos. Jess is incredibly prompt, organized, and professional. She recently took photos of our newborn daughter and did an amazing job! She was incredibly patient and flexible during the session. The fact that Jess is a mother herself was also reassuring. The final photos were very creative and sweet. We highly recommend using Jess for any lifestyle photography, especially newborn photos!

I loved the convenience of Jess coming to my home, how sweet and caring she was during the shoot, and how she asked me what I was looking for and allowed for my input!! She posed Everly so beautifully, in a way that truly complimented her. Looking forward to working with Jess again!

Jessica was available last minute- and when I say last minute, I mean without one week of our wedding- to be our photographer. She was super helpful, encouraging, and led the session so we felt like we knew what we were doing. She’s fun to be around and really makes an effort to capture what the person wants. She made sure to be thorough and didn’t leave until she knew we got the shots we wanted. We would love to book her again in the near future.

Jess has always captured every chapter of our lives so beautifully— gorgeous engagement photos, annual Christmas cards and adorable newborn photos we’ll cherish forever. She is easy going and can pivot on the fly to accommodate chilly weather and ornery toddlers, and always captures the most stunning photography! Photos are always delivered quickly and print-ready. Would give Jessica Lauren Photography a 15/10!

Jess has been our family photographer since we booked her for my sons newborn pictures in 2018. We've used her for family pictures each year, as well as a few specialized sessions. She is fabulous! From suggesting the perfect location to guiding us on outfit choices. She has a way of getting my kids to be comfortable in front of the camera and capturing each of their personalities. Our galleries are always sent to us in a timely matter and always amaze us. Somehow, each year, she outdoes herself with the pictures!
