This photography business was born in 2016. As a new mum to my second child, I was searching for something to keep me inspired and allow me a space outside of being a mum. 

Photography became my passion, one that quickly turned from a side hobby to a successful business. 

Families, Newborns, and Weddings are my specialty and I absolutely love serving all the lovely central coast families 

client guide

Welcome! I couldn't be more excited that you are here. Let me share with you a little about Jessie Walker Photography and why the photo session experiences that I offer are so special. 


 A few fun facts about me

My mum was a photographer, and she inspired me from a very young age by bringing me along to her shoots. 

When I am not holding a camera or a child, I am running or swimming. I find both to be soothing for my soul.

My education background is as a primary school teacher, which has given me many skills to use throughout my sessions as a photographer! It's always been my passion to work with kids

I believe in creating a unique experience for each and every session. One where you feel spoiled from the first time we chat all the way until your beautiful photos are delivered, and beyond. 

I have spent so much time creating an experience for my clients that I know they will never forget. 

  


A FEW FUN FACTS ABOUT ME


My mom was a photographer, and she inspired me from a very young age by bringing me along to her shoots. 

When I am not holding a camera or a child, I am running or swimming. I find both to be soothing for my soul.

My education background is as a primary school teacher, because I just love kids so much.

I have spent so much time creating an experience for my clients that I know they will never forget. 

  

In fact I’m actually a primary school teacher and decided to become this at the ripe old age of 9. I only ever had teaching on my radar and zero plans to ever change that. It wasn’t until I had my own babies that I realised I couldn’t do both. I wanted to be present as much as I could in my family life, and teaching wouldn’t allow that. So I put my brain into gear and thought I’d try family photography, and here I am today!

ready to start planning your session?

My family sessions are always done over sunset. So be sure to check what time that may be, depending on daylight savings. It could mean the difference of 4pm compared to 7.30pm!

These sessions also include full use of my client closet, so pop on over to the gallery and see if there's something you love.

​I understand sunset might be tricky with your little ones, but as a mama of 3 myself, all I ask is for you to trust me! I make every session fun, and let the kids play and enjoy themselves. You might worry they'll be a tired, grumpy mess but I'm on it! I've been a primary school teacher for many years now and nothing will come as a surprise. I have many tricks up my sleeve so come and let's have some fun!

my client closet 

All of my sessions include use of my client closet. There are no additional charges, it's just a little something to help make your experience easier and more enjoyable.

This is my passion and I have invested so much into finding and purchasing specialty items to add to my collection, making your session with me as smooth and stress free as possible. Not having to find or purchase something to wear makes it so much more enjoyable for everyone. I am here to style your family and help you select what works best with colours and sizes. I strongly recommend utilising my client closet, as each piece is carefully selected to enhance the style of family photography I offer.

You are welcome to come to my studio and browse through and try on as many items as you'd like prior to any booked session. I'm working on adding menswear to my collection... once I stop buying ALL THE DRESSES!
 

Eeeeeek you've found my favourite part...


After your enquiry, you will receive my welcome guide and will be able to scroll through my entire client closet to choose a favorite. 

Once you have paid a deposit to secure your session date, you are welcome to make an appointment and come on over to my home studio to browse my collection and try on as many outfits as you'd like. After you've selected what you'd like to use for your session, I'll make note and bring them with me on the day. We will arrange to start your session a little earlier to give you time to change, and then once finished, I just take them home with me and that's it!

how it works

Where are you located?

Do you have a studio?

Do you travel?

Do you have a client closet, how does it work?

Why are your family sessions always at sunset?

Do we get any of the unedited images? 

My kids are sick, what do we do?

We just had our session, when can we expect to receive our gallery?

Why do you only offer studio sessions for newborns?

How long do your sessions go for?

We are so awkward posing for photos. Does that matter?

WHAT IF THE WEATHER TURNS AND THE SESSION CAN’T GO AHEAD?

Should I get my hair and makeup done?

Yes! I hold all my newborn sessions and also offer maternity and sitter sessions in my studio. It’s actually the garage of my home that I have created a cosy little space in. I love it and have tried to make it comfortable and easy to use. I sanitise and launder everything that gets used during a session in order to maintain hygiene and have everything needed in terms of props, wraps and outfits. It has a natural, boho feel to the space, and I use natural lighting only.

WHAT IF THE WEATHER TURNS AND THE SESSION CAN’T GO AHEAD?

Should I get my hair and makeup done?

Yes! I offer maternity and family sessions in certain areas of Sydney (Rouse Hill, The Hawkesbury or the Northern Beaches). I also travel to Newcastle and the Hunter Valley. These locations do however have a small travel fee. If there's a special request (especially for weddings) on a certain location that's quite far away, I'm definitely able to travel! Just contact me and let me know what you're looking for.

Oh this excites me! I have carefully selected the outfits I have purchased and offer them all in a range of sizes. I have some that are high-end, handmade gowns and I also have some that are from sweet little boutique stores. All are chosen with different shapes and sizes in mind and work to flatter all body types.

My client closet is available for everyone to use for their sessions. You’re welcome to book in a time to pop over and browse my collection and try as many on as you’d like. Your session includes unlimited styling advice so don’t stress! Once you’ve selected which outfits you’d like to use, I bring them along to your session and take them back with me afterwards and have them all cleaned ready for the next client.

WHAT IF THE WEATHER TURNS AND THE SESSION CAN’T GO AHEAD?

Should I get my hair and makeup done?

No. Offering my unedited images is giving you only half of my product. I have a high standard that each image must meet, and if it does not meet that criteria, it is removed. If there’s more images I love and know you will like, I will include them. I do not however send you a gallery to choose which ones you’d like, I just include them all for you.

Yes! Most definitely. You’ve invested in beautiful family photos, so make the most of it and pamper yourself. You’re not going to look back at your images and wish you didn’t have your hair and makeup done. Here are some businesses on the coast I highly recommend!​
