"Jacki's slogan 'get real' could not be more accurate. She captured my daughter's and our family's personality in every photo. Not only were the photos beyond our expectations, Jacki's exuberance made the entire experience so much fun!"  - Jessa, Champlin Park mom

"You truly have a gift - not only a great eye for capturing the essence of your client but your personality is so genuine and fun. For a mother that has never been through this before you made the process so stress-free and enjoyable. Thank you!” - Lucinda, Maple Grove mom

“You take regular kids and make them look like rock stars!  - Jamie, STMA mom

"I'd like to take a moment to personally thank you. My daughter struggles with insecurities and has poor self esteem. We knew senior pictures were going to be an issue for her. She has admired your work and has visited your website many times and I think she thought if anyone would make her look good, you could. While I wish she could embrace her beauty on her own, everyone needs uplifting. You did just that during her session. You made her feel pretty. You were so kind and careful to keep in mind details of what was her "good" side and what she didn't like. Your squeals of delight when you thought you had a good shot gave her confidence. You were patient with her and when she felt awkward, you provided words of encouragement. Going into senior pictures, I feared what we've experienced in the past. She wouldn't like what she saw and we wouldn't get to share them with others. The opposite has occurred. She loves how she looks and for the first time in a long time, I think she sees what we've seen all along… just how lovely she is. So thank you!” - Julie, Hill-Murray mom

"Thank you so much for today. Tate doesn’t love being the center of attention and you made him feel very comfortable. You are good at what you do!" - Tammy, Buffalo mom

"I was so pleased with the pictures Jacki took of my daughter. All of the poses were natural and she really captured my daughter's personality. The locations were perfect. My daughter just loved her. My daughter is not a hugger but she hugs Jacki! - Kim, Hill-Murray mom

"We did a friends session with Jacki for 4 senior boys. She selected a few cool spots in Minneapolis for group and individual pictures! It was a super hot October day but she made it so much fun for the guys. We got unique shots and she was definitely able to capture the special bond these guys have nurtured over the years. Thanks Jacki!!!” - Julie, STMA mom

"What an amazing experience my daughter had with Jacki! It’s like they were meant to be paired up together. She got to pick her location, Jacki helped with her outfits and the rest is magic! Jacki goes above and beyond to make sure your senior’s pictures stand above all the rest. Thank you Jacki for the pictures we will cherish forever!” - Jennifer, Becker mom

"I just stopped bawling my eyes out. Seriously. WAY too emotional and so thankful for your ability to capture my baby! I cannot WAIT to look at both books for years to come! You are one in a million!" - Dawn, Rogers mom

"I cannot say enough about the wonderful experience our senior and family had working with Jacki. It was such a great day. She made everyone feel so special! Before the shoot, her communication with us was above and beyond and so impressive - we were all sooo excited for the picture day to arrive. And the viewing day was amazing!" - Mary, Sartell mom

"I cannot express how much we loved having Jacki do my daughter’s senior pictures. Right from my first email with her, I knew she was the right fit for us. She loves her job and it shows. She is accommodating, genuine, enthusiastic, a perfectionist and everything you want in a photographer. We weren’t exactly sure what wanted and she helped coach us into creating such beautiful pictures. She also did our family photos and got my husband to enjoy the photo shoot!  I truly believe she considers each person she photographs as a friend.” - Shanna, Champlin Park mom

"Crying at my desk! I hope you are prepared to be busy as I will be singing your praises to EVERYONE! You have nailed what I have had in my head for 2 years! The boys commented too on how good the pictures turned out, so thank you again for making this an all-around positive experience!” - Heidi, STMA mom

"Jacki truly exceeded our expectations! She was so creative and full of life, she made the experience fun and personal! We received our photos shortly after we ordered them, everything she did was with a spirit of excellence! Thanks Jacki for all your encouragement along the way and making something that could have been stressful, totally enjoyable and fun!! - Lisa, Elk River mom

“Our photo session with Jacki was amazing and everything we could have hoped for!! I was in awe at how quickly Jacki was able to make my daughter feel comfortable and just have fun with it! It’s every girl's dream to have a photo shoot, and it was an amazing experience as well as emotional for mom, watching from the sidelines. The end product is phenomenal - which I expected nothing less based on our experience!! Thrilled with our pics!” - Michelle, Andover mom

"Jacki has photographed both of my children for their senior pictures. Each time, I was impressed by her skill and enthusiasm. She really “got” each kid. One was a country setting and the other was urban. Her insight into their personalities made each shoot run smoothly and very successfully.” - Trudi, Providence Academy mom

“What an amazing experience this was! Jacki really knows how to make the session fun, relaxing and natural! Not only does she love her job, but she knows her clients and takes a vested interest in them, both personally and professionally. She is able to help you if you aren't sure what you want, but also accommodate those things that you know you like! She nails it every time!” - Julie, Elk River mom

"You are such a joy and an outstanding photographer. Your energy shines through and you made our experience so awesome. And thank you for all your work in creating the grad invites and thank you notes too. You made this process easy for me… now, can you help with food at the grad party? ;)" - Jenny, Elk River mom
