hi & welcome to J Stirling Photography!
I am a Newborn and Family Photographer located in the Rockford, IL area... I am also a mom to five crazy boys, and as a busy mom to five babies, I know how fast time goes by. I know that those tiny toes and sweet smiles turn into big kids faster than we want them to. My desire to capture all these moments of my children led me to become a professional photographer. I know firsthand how quickly that first year passes by, in a sleep-deprived blur of extraordinary moments. I know that you are busy with life, work, and everything in between, so I am here to help you with all of the tiny details.
You're looking for a photographer who knows what it is like to have kids, can settle both crying babies or a child's temper tantrum, can capture your family's awesomeness and precious milestones - that's what I do!
I love getting to know my clients and being a part of their lives. There is nothing more rewarding than clients having me capture their big milestones year after year. I want your portrait experience to be just that, an experience.
J Stirling Photography, The Baby Co. is a luxury full-service photography studio proud to photograph expecting parents, newborn babies, children & families throughout the greater Rockford area, as well as Southern Wisconsin and the Janesville area. The J Stirling Photography studio is located in Davis, IL.; however, I also photograph sessions at multiple outdoor locations. The goal of each session is for you to capture this particular time in your life, creating family keepsakes that your family will enjoy and share with generations to come. Artwork includes beautiful wooden folio boxes, custom framing, museum-quality gallery wrapped canvas, & fine art albums. Everything is made just for you, your family, and your home. These are your forever memories, and I am so lucky to be sharing this particular season of life with you and your family. I can't wait for your session!
I am first a wife and a mother. I have been married to my high school sweetheart and amazing husband for almost 20 years. For as long as I can remember, we talked about having a big family on a little farm. While our journey has been just that, a journey, we are blessed to be living our dream on our small farm with our five beautiful children. When I'm not behind my camera, I try to spend as much time as I can with my kids, building memories.
I love binge-watching anything with doctors or detectives, especially when I am editing. I could seriously re-watch SVU, Grey's Anatomy, and Bones over and over. I have never encountered any junk food that I didn't like! Well, except Sno Balls. Those things are just gross (sorry, Sno Ball lovers). Chocolate is my fave!
I have been a volunteer photographer and family service representative for our local non-profit organization, The Haven Network, for the past four years. I am so honored to use my talent to serve our community in such a profound way. The team at the Haven Network is nothing short of amazing, and I am so proud to get to be a part of it.
I love the details. I am an introvert by nature, and I love to observe the details of all the things going on around me. When it comes to capturing moments, I love capturing all the things no one thinks to look at; the tiny toes, the long eyelashes, the way a child sees the world with wonder. I love watching and capturing it all.
