"We've used Jessica on more than one occasion and have loved each and every shoot! She is so sweet and patient with my son, and even has cute little accessories to keep the little ones entertained while she shoots. I never know how to pose when it comes to taking photos, but Jessica is always eager to guide us and give suggestions. Not to mention, I've received so many complements on her work. Needless to say, I am a lifetime customer!

About me

Hi, my name is Jessica Howell Waldrop; I am the owner and lead photographer at J. Howell Art Photography.  I am based in South Louisiana, but I love to travel!

I have a master's degree in art education, and I teach art at the secondary and collegiate levels. I enjoy all things creative, especially creative portrait photography. 


My husband and I have 2 sweet kids that are our greatest blessings!!  We are also huge animal lovers, and we are eager to spend time outside participating in fun and adventurous activities as a family. I find a lot of my inspiration from the beautiful nature we are surrounded with here in the South.

Although I specialize in wedding photography, I capture a variety of major life events for my loyal clients.  From senior portraits to family lifestyle sessions, your life is my canvas.  I even take infant and animal portraits!  Working with fun and adventurous couples and families to capture their unique personalities is my passion!

Have questions? Contact me below!



"Jessica is wonderful to work with and I can't say enough good things about her. 
She made our wedding day fun and memorable with her amazing photos she captured.
I highly recommend Jessica!"
