“When my husband and I were searching for a photographer for our wedding, we were getting frustrated because everything started toblur together until a friend of ours suggested Jodi. She had done their family pictures (which were wonderful) so we met with her and within 2 seconds, we knew we had found our photographer! Jodi was so fun and professional with our engagement and wedding photos. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. We have since suggested using Urban Photography to friends who have used Jodi and they have all been just as happy!…”

“Jodi has been a part of our “family” since taking our wedding photos in 2003. Our wedding photos turned out beautiful! She then took photos of our daughter at 9 months, 1 year and 3 years and two sets of family photos! It is because of her talent and skill that we keep going back to her and recommend others to her. She makes our family look wonderful and natural in every photo and always has great locations and sets in mind for all of her photos. Our daughter always looks like a superstar when Jodi takes her picture and we couldn’t be happier with the results that adorn the walls in our home! We feel lucky to have found her and are so happy that our lives are uniquely intertwined. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer.”

“We have done our family photos with Jodi. It is fun, relaxed and she’s terrific, calm and appreciates our children.”

“Jodi did my maternity, newborn, six month, and 1 year photos of my son and I love them all. I was on the fence about the maternity portraits, but as usual, she was right. She made me feel very comfortable during that session. The pictures after my son was born are so special to me. Children change so much in the first year. I will cherish all of those photos forever because he was only that age once. The pictures especially show how much his personality changed that first year, but also help me remember how tiny and sweet he was as a newborn. We are going to have another baby in March and I plan very much to do the same four sessions with our second child. She has a way with children that I feel is her true talent, the moments she captured with my son are all so precious. I now have these pictures to forever look back on to help me remember what he was like that first year of his life.”

“Jodi has taken the pictures for my son’s first birthday and my daughters new born pictures. She has a family friendly atmosphere and quality that can’t compare to any other photographer that we’ve worked with. She has meticulous detail but also makes the environment fun – which can be challenging when you are dealing with small children! I will go to her for all our family photos and refer her constantly to our family and friends. She is the best in the business! 🙂

I met Jodi back in 2007 when looking for a maternity photographer at the last minute. Though I’m usually shy in front of the camera, Jodi made me feel at ease, and took beautiful portraits that I will always treasure. A few weeks later she shot gorgeous newborn and family portraits which are still hanging in our home. Due to having very challenging children, we waited five years to get family pictures taken again, and finally booked a session with Jodi this past summer. In 20 minutes she captured shots of our family, my husband and I together, my challenging boys together and individually and we ended up with amazing portraits. Jodi is talented, kind, artistic, and very easy to work with. I recommend her very highly.
