Is this your first baby? Yes!

When was your due date? October 25th, 2016… He was born on October 3rd

Did you go into labor naturally? How did it happen? I woke up in the middle of the night to use the restroom and my water broke! From there, everything happened so quickly… I had Luke 3 hours later.

Did you deliver at a hospital? Yes

How did delivery go? Very fast! He was breech, so they did a C-section as quickly as possibly since I was progressing so quickly.



How did you pick your baby’s name? I loved the name Luke and my husband liked Elliot 🙂

Favorite quote or verse pertaining to your child or motherhood: Hold your baby… Everything else can wait!

Andy advice for first time moms? The first few months are beautiful, but oh so challenging… It gets so much better! By month 3, he was cooing, smiling, and stealing my heart 🙂

Any product recommendations for others? Rock n Play, Pampers Swaddlers, Kiinde nursing/pumping system, Swaddle Sacks, and a combo of Aquifer and Boudreaux Butt Paste 🙂

Even in the womb, your baby has a distinct personality unlike any others. You want your newborn portraits to reflect your little one’s unique story and place in your new family.

That’s where I step in. I’m Jessica, owner of Lovely Fitzgerald Photography.

Being a mom of three, specializing in the newborn photography business for six years, and photographing hundreds of newborns has taught me that no two babies and no two baby stories are the same.


Capturing those heartfelt and meaningful moments between you and your baby happens to be my passion.

From our first meeting together, I will start getting to know you and your style – your likes and dislikes, what cherished heirlooms you want to include, and what colors and themes we can incorporate from your nursery and home decor. Getting to know you and your family ensures that every moment we capture during your newborn portraits is a true reflection of your one-of-a-kind style. It also ensures that you can sit back and relax on the day of your portraits, while enjoying snacks and coffee, maybe even a quick nap, because all of the details have already been planned in advance.

I create the ultimate newborn experience for you and your family, no request goes unconsidered, and no significant detail is overlooked. You will be provided with full service from start to finish, from our first chat, to installation of your artwork. You have enough on your plate already with a new baby. The last thing you need to worry about is figuring out what to do with your portraits while trying to figure out your new role as parents. I will guide you through the process in a relaxed and stress free environment, helping you every step of the way.

With a Bachelor’s of Science in Interior Design, I have the unique talent to create stunning art for you, your home, and for your future great-grandchildren. My work has received multiple honors, including Expertise 20 Best Newborn Photographers in DallasPhotography Magazine’s Top Texas Newborn Photographers of 2016, Thumbtack Best of 2015 & 2016, featured and dubbed the Baby Whisperer of North Texas by NBC5, and published several times with the International Association of Newborn Photographers and Professional Photographers of America.

Ready to get started?

I only photograph a select number of newborns every month to ensure you receive the personalized service you deserve, regardless if your baby comes on time or not.

Contact me today to schedule your complimentary consultation to start the planning process and ensure you get your due date penciled into my schedule.


If you are ready to book your session you can pay your session fee in our shop. After your session fee is paid you will schedule your consultation with Jessica. We can’t wait to plan your dream session!
