About the Artist
My name is Jessica Peate, I am the artist and owner of J.Marie Photography. I am originally from Colorado but military life helped make North Carolina my home. I have been so incredibly blessed to have so many amazing clients over the last 10 years that help supported my business, dreams and my babies! I have 3 amazing children and a husband that adores us all.
About the Experience
Finding the right photographer to capture some of the most intimate moments in your life can be a little intimidating at first. I encourage you to find someone who shares your same style and vision. These irreplaceable moments will be some of your most treasured possessions. I would love to get to know you whether it’s a personal phone call or the chance to meet for coffee (or dessert, I LOVE chocolate!) I want you to comb through my work and make sure I am the perfect fit for your family. I want your photos to take your breath away. My studio is located in the heart of Fayetteville, NC and is filled with everything you need to take care of your little one! One of the most important things is I do not time sessions. I work until I get everything I need to give you the same quality of work you see in my portfolio. If your child is having an “off day” there is no need to worry, I’m not looking at the clock. If your newborn isn’t very sleepy at his/her session, we can try again another day. Secondly, I hand edit every photo presented to you. I smooth skin, give eyes that extra pop and add the artistic flare that is portrayed in my work. Last but not least, I want your photos to be on your walls or in album, not on a disc in a drawer. You are making the investment in custom photography and I want to provide you with high quality products that can be passed down from generation to generation. This is why a print credit is included with your session fee! I invite you to please contact me with any questions you might have about your upcoming maternity, birth or newborn session. I would love to get to know your family and help guide you through this process.
