My husband and I had a wonderful experience during both maternity and newborn photo sessions. JJ was patient, creative, professional and gave us exactly what we wanted. We were surprised…
My wife and I were looking for ways to capture the magic of the moments before the arrival of our first child. This seemed almost impossible given the logistics and anxiety around the birth, until we found JJ Photography.
JJ offered flexible timing and the convenience of a professional studio brought to our apartment.
The familiar surroundings made the maternity photo shoot more natural, restful and beautiful. JJ also took lifestyle shots of us around our home, thereby capturing poignant moments that we would have forgotten amidst the rush of early parenthood.
JJ is a very warm and engaging person, and was extremely generous with his knowledge and time during the shoot. (more…)
As first-time parents, there are many things to figure out in the first few weeks at home – it’s a stressful time. The last thing you want is to be dealing with extra logistics and difficult contractors. JJ was fantastic in this regard – very easygoing, patient and flexible. We simply named a few convenient times for him to come to the house (no need to cart the family to a studio!), and he made it work.
JJ was extremely generous with his knowledge and time, talking us through how the process works, and offering photo tips for us to use after he packed up his gear.
Phyllis and I are first-time parents, and so the arrival of Phoebe was hectic to say the least. WE wanted to capture some moments from the first few weeks, but we weren’t too keen on going to a studio for a photo shoot. This is what sets JJ Photography apart, and why we were so happy with the shoot and with the beautiful photos of our family and of little Phoebe. JJ understood how the shoot would have to revolve around Phoebe’s feeding times, so he was very flexible. He quickly transformed our living room into a living studio and it was fun and relaxing as we waited for Phoebe to get a little sleepy so that she would be more ‘pliable’ for the photos. Phoebe was a little star to say the least, and JJ kept us all laughing with his warm sense of humour.
Pregnancy, for us, was a whole host of new and funny experiences. We wanted a photographer to help us capture not only the beauty of it all, but also to help us lighten the mood and find amusement in it. When we briefed JJ on our sometimes outlandish needs, he ensured we got everything we wanted – including both serenity and humour. He laughed through the session with us and showed the utmost professionalism and courtesy. His expertise was obvious from the moment he turned up and we are thrilled with the resulting shots.
