I wish I could give ten stars. If you look at my profile you'll see that I don't review many businesses. So many of them are often good but don't really stand out as exceptional. Jamaica and Sabrina are extremely exceptional. Over the past year, my family has been around the block with this photography duo and not only have we come away with literally hundreds of spectacular photos, we've made friendships that will last a lifetime. I've done every sort of session that Jamaica has to offer. I did a bombshell session with her 6 days before I delivered our now one year old son. My husband and I also did maternity photos (which you can see in my profile) and we got the baby's first year package. Initially I thought it was a bit overkill. You go in for a session with the baby at 2 weeks, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, and one year. However, what I didn't realize as a first time mother is how dramatically your baby changes in that first year. Other than his car seat and pacifier, I absolutely believe these photos are the best investment we ever made. Jamaica has a way of capturing moments and feelings and personality in a way that I've never seen before. My bombshell session was awesome. I was huge, being fully pregnant and expecting to go into labor at any moment. Jamaica and Sabrina were so patient with me and made me feel so comfortable and really beautiful. And the photos were STUNNING!! My husband was so happy. It's one thing to have photos done when you are looking your best, but to have the light shined in just the right way to make all of your inner beauty come out when you are bloated and tired and swollen, is true talent and I'm so happy I did it. And last but not least, our wedding. Our beautiful son came a year before our wedding which turned out to be a blessing in the photo department because Jamaica doesn't always do weddings, I think mostly because she is just super busy with the other side of her business. But we were so excited when she agreed to not only shoot our wedding but travel all the way to Yosemite for the rehearsal, wedding day, and more photos the following day. All of you brides out there know that you can spend months or even years planning the wedding of your dreams, but without good photos, that day only lasts a few hours and then it's gone. Because of Jamaica and Sabrina I will have stunning and really unique photos that will remind me of how special that time was, forever. And to really show how they go above and beyond, at the wedding, they acted almost as day-of wedding coordinators. They both were constantly asking if anyone needed anything, and were such a calming presence the entire day. I can honestly say that this is one business that deserves five stars and more. Their service is unique, and genuine. Their prices are very reasonable, and their personalities and interaction (with us anyways) far exceeds normal expectations. I will definitely continue to use them for family photos in the future and to give bombshell packages as gifts. Go see them! You'll be truly happy you did.
I can't say enough good things about Jamaica. We bought a groupon for a family session. When we arrived at our location, she immediately put us all at ease. She even managed to charm my cranky 2 year old. Her skill and timing is impeccable. At our preview, I was in tears as she so beautifully captured each of my kid's distinct personalities in the photos. I was so moved, I signed up for the newborn package. I've since had 2 sessions with my baby and am so glad I chose to have Jamaica capture these fleeting moments. By chance, I had the baby early and called Jamaica to see if we could get in quick (she was planning on an international trip and was to leave the next day) to get some pictures of the baby as a newborn. Amazingly, she made time for us and I now have beautiful memories of my daughter at 3 days old. People stop and take notice of the pictures in my home. Really, this was one of the best decisions I've made as a mother. Thanks Jamaica!
If I could sum up in a few words what working with Jamaica is like it would be creative, fun and above all professional. I would highly recommend considering her as your top choice photographer for any event. I have enjoyed every session with her and am always blown away by her work!-C
Just LOVE my family portraits. Our four generation picture will forever be cherished in our homes. Jamaica was able to talk my husband into smiling lol & even included our dog Yoda. I was very happy with my photographs that I decided to book a more intimate session with just myself. Never thought I could look that pretty and Jamaica made it such a wonderful experience. The pictures were a great surprise for my husband whos in Afghanistan.Thank you Inspiring Images.Highly recommended!-F
I love love love this woman and her photographic skills! Our best family shots, personal shots, playtime shots, almost all the shots I choose to frame....come from Jamaica. She captures the moment, the person, the light, the landscape, everything just right.She is gregarious and friendly while in session and will make anyone feel comfortable and happy. She's da best. :)-KW
Jamaica (@ Inspiring Images) took my maternity photos. She made me feel so comfortable while baring my belly. I was able to have a few of my old friends come hang out and make me laugh the entire day. I was also able to do a sexier shoot the same day, still while pregnant where it is impossible to even tell that I am pregnant!! Pure photo magician. Definitely recommend her services and skills! Love, Love, Love!-SR
We did our family photos with Jamaica (@ Inspiring Images) out amongst the vineyards. They are simply stunning! It is true what everyone else says that she is truly an Artist, not just a photographer. One of our family photos we turned into a big canvas above our fireplace, and everyone who walks in the door walks straight over to admire it and asks me where we had it done...JAMAICA !After family photos I decided to do the boudoir photos. She was willing to come to my house where I was more comfortable. I really do not consider myself photogenic, but the shots Jamaica got absolutely amazed me. I was super excited to present them to my hubby for a special Father's Day gift. Needless to say, he loved the book!Jamaica is an Artist, not simply a Photographer!-SH
I've never particularly liked pictures of myself so I was a little hesitant in our outdoor in the woods photo shoot. Jamaica made me feel so comfortable to just have fun with it.. The pictures were amazing. I couldn't believe how beautiful and classic they were. She has an eye for capturing the best in her subject. Thank you so much.. I'll treasure the pictures forever.-J
Jamaica has done amazing work with my family pics. She encourages my kids to just play and be themselves and through her lens she grasps their true spirit. My husband has never been big on having his picture taken but she seems to bring out the perfect smile.I love the work she has done for my family . I appreciate her photography but most of all I appreciate her. Always going above and beyond to make our sessions fun and I cant wait til our next photography adventure.....hmmmm maybe a boudoir session????-J
Jamaica is fantastic! She took photos of my bed and breakfast inn for my website and my bookings went up overnight! She even got in one or two of my kids. Her advice was great about which ones I should use, and now I have a website and brochure I can be proud of!Alison LoeprichOwner, Glenmorey Bed and Breakfasthttp://www.placervillebedandbreakfast.com
I am so pleased with the photographs Jamaica took at my wedding. She was professional, punctual and had a gift for capturing the excitement and joy of my special day. Her artistic eye and delightful personality made her a pleasure to work with.-J
I have been in the motion picture industry for over 20 years and my specialty is lighting for image capture. From Titanic to Tranformers! So thus I am always Leary to let anyone take my families photos. Until a few years ago Jamaica took some pictures of my wife and kids and I have to say they were the best I'd ever seen.Jamaica truly understands how to paint with light and transform an otherwise mediocre situation into a beautiful natural memory!I wouldn't trust my families memories to be artfully and professionally done by anyone else. - JE
What an amazing experience. Jamaica (@ Inspiring Images) did a session with my teenage daughter- my daughter had never had her pix done before- Jamaica did a incredible job making her feel comfortable and the photos were gorgeous.I had my pregnancy pix done with Jamaica and not only were they fun to do- but the end results were stunning- I have never looked so good!!Jamaica also did our new baby pix. She captured the most beautiful moments for us. Jamaica has an amazing sense of timing, creative ideas and she does really well with children of any age.The photo books they make are also incredible gifts and so fun to have and share with friends and loved ones.Inspiring Images is the ultimate choice for any occassion you want to remember and capture.-SM
