Manchester Family Photography by Jessica O'Shaughnessy
Right from the point of first contact Jessica went out of her way to accommodate our requirements as a family. My husband hates having his photo taken but the shoot with Jessica put him right at ease. I had just found out we were expecting our second baby and she was right on hand with some great suggestions of shots we could use for an announcement picture. Everything on the day was conducted in a professional but friendly manner and Jessica was absolutely brilliant with my little boy and he looks at the photos and says ‘our friend took those photos’. But all of this pales into insignificance compared to how beautiful the photos are. I’m so happy with how natural they look and I look amazing despite having morning sickness. She really is amazing. My only regret is that I didn’t find her before to do my wedding photos. Thanks Jessica, can’t wait for you to do our next set of family photos now bump is now here as baby George.
Jess was our wedding photographer little over two years ago. Whilst I was pregnant with our little girl Rua, we discussed having professional photographs taken of her that we could display throughout our home and share with family and friends. Jess was always going to be number one choice for this - I booked Jess before our little one arrived. Jess is not only an amazing photographer but also a lovely person. At both our wedding and when shooting our newborn baby, Jess made everybody feel comfortable from the offset. I had no doubt that our little one’s photographs would be everything we wished for and more - and they are. We have beautiful shots of both us as a family and of Rua to look back on for many years to come. Thank you Jess x
Jess has been there for all of our big life events, she took photos after our engagement, on our wedding day and most recently for a newborn shoot for our son. Jess is so friendly, she immediately puts you at ease and that’s very important when you’re a new mum with a baby and everything’s a bit up in the air. It wouldn’t matter if the house was a bit of mess or you hadn’t done your hair - Jess makes you feel completely comfortable. The photographs from the newborn shoot are ones we will treasure forever, exactly what we wanted, photos of our little boy at home just doing whatever he was doing - no poses or props! We can’t wait to see Jess again soon - this time at a family shoot with our now nearly 2 year old!
We have had all our family photos done by Jess and will continue to do so. We can’t recommend her enough! I was looking for someone who could capture us as a family; natural photos of our family and our son. Jess captured exactly this. She made us feel so comfortable too - which is fortunate as the majority of our sons photos ended up being breastfeeding pics as he non stop fed! She is always super flexible and never rushed too. The finished pictures always fill me with so much joy and happiness as they are perfection every time. We would never go with another photographer now and can’t wait to see the photos we get done of our son due September 2019 as well as a family Xmas shoot this year. I recommend her to everyone who ever asks us and so many people do ask who did our wonderful family pics.
