I figured it’s been awhile since I’ve written a blog post, I might as well reintroduce myself.

I’m Jess, the photographer behind Grace Claire Photography. A LOT has changed in the past couple years and really just in the past month. Life has been so crazy. My husband and I recently took on the role of Campus Pastor’s of Cross Church East on the East Side of Houma. We’ve had another baby girl, so that makes FOUR. Four kids man. Four beautiful, hilarious girls. So, to say life has been a little exciting is an understatement.

I wanted to do some self portraits of myself because I mainly just needed a picture for my Facebook Business Page…. but it helped get me out of my comfort zone. I’m not as skinny as I used to be after having my girls so this was a challenge for me. I did it though and I love the results.

So this is me….

Jesus loving, coffee drinking, baby wearing/nursing mama, and lover of light. ❤️

New things are coming within Grace Claire Photography, so be on the look out for some changes with sessions :)


Helllooooooo 35 Wide!

Let’s talk gear.
I recently bought the Sigma 35mm and was a little skeptical because all I ever buy is Nikon brand.
I read the reviews over and over… and over. I caved. I bought it and I am in LOVE. Super sharp lens. So much variety. I love the look it gives me. I also like the little bit of distortion on the sides. I can’t say enough good things about this lens. It’s heavy and I like it.
I bought it to use for my newborn sessions at my clients home, just to give me a little more space. I got it in a few weeks ago and it hasn’t come off my camera. I didn’t think I would like it because I love my 50. My 50 is my baby, but this here…this 35 is right up there. I may just have to name it. ;)
I just think it fits me so well and goes with my style.
So, if you were thinking about getting it, now maybe I just confirmed your thinking haha:)

( I am in no way affiliated with Sigma, I just really really love my purchase.)
