Jaci Forshtay
Jaci Forshtay Photography

Here Jaci tells us about her business:

"Hi!  I'm Jaci.  As in "Jackie," Jaci.  Everyone gets that all confused so I thought I'd clear the air right away.  ;)    I'm a mama to three crazy fun kids, a wife to an unbelievably handsome man (who has an 80's mustache right now due to losing a bet), and a lover of Cherry Coke.  I picked up my first DSLR after being less than impressed at a "department store" photography company and decided that I would take my own kids' photos instead.  That quickly grew into a genuine love for photography and capturing life's littlest and biggest moments professionally!  I photograph everything from gorgeous mamas-to-be to stylish seniors but my favorite clients are the wee little ones....I especially love squishy newborns and teach {Purely Newborn} Small Group Workshops to photographers who are wanting to advance their newborn photography skills.  Newborn photography is one of the only jobs where it's a joy (and an inevitable event) to get peed and pooped on, am I right?!?!  ;)  Thanks so much to Little Keira's Bows for having me! "

Jessica Downey

Jessica Downey Photo

Here Jessica tells us about her business:

My name is Jessica Downey and I'm so happy to be featured here with Little Keira's Bows!   I'm a photographer in Chandler, AZ and I love all kinds of photography.  The majority of my work is with families, children and babies, but I also love to photograph couples, and I've been doing quite a bit of commercial work as well.  But I have to admit that my very favorite thing to photograph is my own children...  They are truly my inspiration.
To me, photographs are a visual representation of something much deeper, and that's what a strive to capture in my work.  I love images that are infused with light and joy, and are centered around natural interaction.
