Portrait Photography

“We are making photographs to understand what our lives mean to us.”
— Ralph Hattersley

If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, you’re not going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures. Photography for me is not about how it looks but how it feels. It’s one thing to take a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are, expressing their personality and life through the images.

Photography is an art of observation. It's about seeing everything is a whole different way.





If you are looking for an amazing photographer in West Des Moines or in Iowa in general, look no further. Jade is extremely talented and unlike any other photographer you'll meet. She spent years perfecting her craft and has a detailed and profound understanding of composition and styling her subjects to get the maximum impact for her shots. I am glad I chose her services and will use her services again in the future. If you are on the fence , I would say what are you waiting for and to go ahead and book her immediately. Don't look any further, she's the best.



Jade is amazing.

She made us feel comfortable and confident. My husband and I are clueless when it comes to posing for pictures. Jade took the lead in positioning us for every single shot and we didn’t have to worry about how we looked anymore.

Her work is organic. My 2 y/o toddler began to lose interest in taking pictures and Jade was just so patient and understanding. She communicated with our little girl and found a way to be able to take a couple more good shots of her.

Most times, people are nervous with these sessions. With Jade Photography, you’ll realize that you’ll feel like it’s your sister or a friend that’s taking pictures of you. Of course, in a more professional and pleasant setting.

Overall, we enjoyed our time with her and we look forward to seeing more of her work!



Jade was amazing! I searched through Google and looked at many photographers and their portfolio's, Jade's stood out to me. From the very beginning she was incredibly professional and answered my questions/ concerns. She even went as far as helping with outfit choices and giving suggestions on what may coordinate better for our shoot.
When we met Jade in person I knew right away we hired the right photographer for the job. Her personality shows in her smile and her passion for her job. Being a photographer is creating art that will last forever, and Jade did just that. She captured timeless pictures that my husband and I will cherish for years to come. If you are thinking for a photographer who will deliver what you want look no further.
