When you give us a call, you will find us quite nosy. We are curious about your family, your hobbies, the personalities of your children, and how many dogs you have. By asking and listening, we would love to design a Photography Session with the outcome you are dreaming of. Knowing that you love candids, that your smallest child has embraced the age of 2 with all its vigor, and that your boxer is truly your first child.
We get you! We are kid & dog friendly and ready to have a great time!

It's All in the Details!


September & October

I feel like Oprah - You get a deal! You get a deal! Aaaaand YOU get a deal!

    We can talk about what kind of Photography Session you would like. Schedule and pay for your session and talk about clothing, locations, etc. We will also email print prices.


    We are going to have a great time today! Feel free to bring extra clothing choices. We have snacks, water and juice boxes at the Studio for snack breaks.


    Within 7 to 10 days we will have an Ordering Session at the Studio. During your first Ordering Session, all prints 8×12 and smaller are 2 for 1 and canvas is 20% off. We have Christmas Cards, Birth Announcements, and other custom design cards.


    All orders are ready in 2-3 weeks. During the holidays we do have cut-off times for orders. At the same time we are working around the clock to speed up delivery. Christmas Cards take a week after final design approval. Rush service is available for an additional cost.

Awe! You didn't have to say that! But THANK YOU so much for saying so!

The shoot went well today! Patty (JBP's Makeup Artist) was great and so helpful! We figured out we had crossed paths recently - small world in Ktown. I’m meeting with John on Thursday to view the pictures. I am so excited! I am dying to see them! I think he got some great photos!


I just wanted to make sure I thanked you both for the care and attention you took with me and the kids on our session.  As you could tell from our raucous laughter today, we had a blast both last week and re-living it today!  You all strike the perfect yet often elusive balance of professional and relaxed that is necessary to create beautiful photographs and memories! Thanks so much! Can't wait to show them off and get them up on our walls!

One Fun Mom!

The pics are stellar!

We really get to know our clients. When mom's are emailing in the middle of the night - I know it's a late night feeding. When we hear in a mom's voice the horrible scary medical problems that their family is facing - it makes us think. We try to make just one of their days better. This was from a friend / client after we gave her some JBP love.   No way! No way! Friend! Thank you! I have no words. Thank you so so much! I'm just...speechless. Thank yooooouuuu!

Mom of 4; Hero to many!

Thank you again for the wonderful pictures you took of Edgar on his first birthday. You're so much fun and you made us feel like home.

Wonderful Mom!

{This is from a mom that had her daughter's birthday Fashionista Party in our studio.}  OMG!  I have been trying to find the right words for these.  They are great as usual and as expected.  Been trying to figure out which photo I want to give each girl.  And then I will be coming back to order some bigger prints.  Tough choices on these! Word is spreading about this party idea! The girls had a fabulous time.


We LOVE the pics.  Y’all did a fantastic job making everyone look their best. Thanks so much for all your help.
