I came to Jay Saunders Photography for my sons newborn photoshoot. I was very nervous as I wasn’t sure what to expect but Jay makes you feel very at home and comfortable in her studio. She is magic with babies and gets the absolute cutest photos! I also bought two physical acrylic prints for the wall and you can really see the quality. Would highly recommend!
