Hello and welcome!

Photographer in Hampton Roads


I am a newborn and studio portrait photographer working in Virginia Beach and other areas of Hampton Roads. I got my start in portrait photography working as a hair stylist and makeup artist in the fashion and film industry in Chicago. Naturally, after practicing on my two children, newborn and baby photography came next. Now I offer photography not only for the professional, but also for the family. 

Newborn Photography in Hampton Roads

Providing newborn and baby photography brings me so much joy! I love making props, knitting wardrobe pieces, and working with you to create sweet backdrops that snuggle your little one.

Studio Portrait Photography in Hampton Roads

Photography is all about bending light and studio portrait photography allows me to play! I love the ability to create deep shadows and bright highlights; just where I want them. You will see that I get really pumped about defining the mood for my set. In addition, my experience with hair and makeup naturally fits into the portrait photography genre. I have total control in creating EXACTLY what is in my head. If you would like to review my qualifications for hairstyling and makeup, please visit my sister website: www.jenniferleejohnson.com


“So friendly and makes you feel comfortable while you’re at her house! My newborn was taken care of; she was extremely cautious of him the entire time! She also knew how to handle him throughout the entire process and remained patient while photographing him. Which couldn’t have been easy! Loved her work and loved that she is willing to try ideas of the family.”


“Jennifer was absolutely amazing in the worst conditions! Our shoot day turned into a snowy/rainy day but she had no problem and got amazing pictures of my family. It was our first photo shoot as a family and it certainly was memorable. I know we will use Jennifer again before we leave Newport.”


“Jennifer took pictures of our new baby and our family. They are so beautiful, and she was so wonderful to work with! She was so calming and didn’t rush anything in order to get the perfect pictures. I can’t wait to do photos outside with her when the weather gets nice.
