About Me

MBR006bwAbout Me

My name is Jessica Waterworth, and I am so happy you have decided to visit my site! First and foremost, I am a mom to two amazing and beautiful girls who inspire me every day; and a loving wife to an extremely supportive husband.

Photography has been in my life since I can remember, as my Dad never went too far without a camera in his hand. At a young age, he encouraged me to shoot pictures by buying me my very own film camera. I took photography courses throughout high school and college and have always been most passionate about photographing people. Photography is such an amazing art form as it freezes a moment in time and can capture a memory or emotion which would otherwise be easily forgotten.

I have chosen to focus my craft in newborn, baby and family photography as I find the innocence in young children to be the most beautiful thing, and there is nothing better than capturing a lovely candid moment between family members.

My background includes being a professional Nanny, Education Director, and a Mom; I consider my experience with babies and young children to be extensive, so please feel comfort in knowing I can roll with the punches! I look forward to speaking with you and learning more about your family and what you have in mind for your custom portrait session.

To contact me please email me at or contact me by phone at 1-289­-925­-5490.


Session Info

The following information will hopefully answer any questions you may have regarding your photo session. Feel free to scroll through and gain a better understanding of how my process works. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me via phone or email.

When to book Maternity
As soon as you know you are pregnant and want to get professional photos! The best time to photograph you and your growing bump is between 32 and 37 weeks, so we will book a date within that time frame that is convenient for you.
When to book Newborn
 At this stage, new babies are most sleepy and snugly between 5 and 10 days of age. This allows us to gain those adorable poses of baby as they still enjoy being wrapped up or swaddled. That being said, babies older than 10 days offer a different outlook on this sweet stage of life so please don’t hesitate to book them in. To schedule your newborn session, we will choose a date one week after your due date. This will just be an approximate guideline as of course not all babies are born when we want them to be! Once your little bundle has arrived, contact me at your earliest convenience to arrange the appropriate date if it needs to be adjusted. My approach to newborn portraits is to allow the little babe to be the boss. I allot 2-3 hours for a newborn session to allow for feedings, diaper changes, fussy times, etc.
How to book
Please contact me via phone 289-925-5490 or email to ask any questions you may have, or to book your session.
What to wear
As a rule, I ask my clients to avoid busy patterns as they can become distracting. Also, muted tones are preferred over bright colours to keep you as the focus, not your fashion sense. If you are curious about what attire will be most suitable for your specific session, please discuss with me during your initial creative consultation and I will give you some ideas.
What to bring
We will discuss this further during your initial creative consultation, as each session requires something different. A general guideline is to bring a change of clothing for your children or babies as accidents do happen, and perhaps a change of shirt for Mommy and Daddy too. When doing a session with toddlers, I recommend bringing a favourite toy or two and some light snacks. For newborns, bring milk and bottles (if bottle feeding), change of clothing, diapers and a pacifier or two.
Session locations
All newborn, baby, and cake smash sessions are done in my home studio located in Beamsville Ontario. I have pre-selected locations in the Beamsville and surrounding areas for Family and Maternity shoots, however I am also open to your ideas and suggestions. I am willing to travel to a preferred location of yours within a designated area. If you have a location in mind that is beyond that area, there may be an additional cost for travel.
Located in my home in Beamsville Ontario, my studio is set up with soft professional lighting, props for posing, numerous toys for busy older siblings, as well as a TV with Netflix. Parents can take the opportunity to have some “lounge” time…if possible!…with a cup of coffee or tea, while I have fun photographing the newest addition to the family.
In case of cancellation
In case of illness or inclement weather, contact me as soon as possible to arrange another date for your session. Your deposit will be transferred accordingly*.
I require a $50 deposit upon booking your session to hold that date. The remainder of your investment fee is due upon the date of your photo session.
*A one-time transfer of your initial deposit will be applied in case of illness or inclement weather. If session requires re-booking twice, the initial deposit will be non-transferable and will need to be paid again.



I believe that the best way to capture those fleeting moments in life is through portrait photography. A cheeky smile, an adorable yawn, a loving look between family members, these are the moments that I aim to acquire during your custom photo session. I recommend utilizing my in home studio for all newborn, baby, and cake smash sessions, however I am also willing to travel to a preferred location (additional travel fee may apply).

Maternity and family sessions are much more interesting and dynamic on location rather than in studio. I have a few pre-selected locations for these sessions; however, I am certainly willing to discover new areas upon your request.

My studio is set up with professional lighting which allows me to photograph during most hours of the day. The lighting is soft, quiet and unobtrusive for those intimate newborn sessions, however also allows me to express the natural beauty and flawlessness of your new baby or young toddler.

My main priority is to provide you with beautiful images that you will treasure for many years to come. In order to serve you best, I provide a creative consultation via phone or email prior to your photo session. I want to hear about your photography style and what you are looking for in a photo session. These are your precious moments in time, so I want to ensure you are happy with my method to capture them. Upon booking your session, a deposit of $50 is required to hold your date. The remainder of your session fee is due on the date of your photo session. I accept payment via cash, cheque or e-transfer.

I do not include prints in my session packages as each family is unique in their vision to display their photographs. Prints are available upon request and will be discussed during your initial consultation. 1-2 weeks after your session, you will be invited to view your images via a password protected gallery on my website. This allows you to view the images and select your favourites which will then be edited and available to you for digital download within 2-4 weeks.

My session fees start at $100. This includes your initial consultation, one hour of my time and photography talent, location and props. This cost is a baseline only and is subject to change based on the session package you choose.
