Jaki, I saw the entire album. It is breath taking. I have never seen more beautiful and natural photography. You truly let the joy and love of the evening show in your pictures. Just awesome. I would recommend you to anyone. Thank you so much. I was on top of the world, seeing my son and his bride so happy. Not only are your pictures beautiful but you were such a patient and accomodating professional. And to top it off you were so fun and added your own beautiful spirit to the event.

“There are photographers who capture that very special moment that made your heart skip a beat and freeze it in time so you can treasure it and relive it at will.   There are photographers who capture a moment you didn’t know was there, and reveal a different layer, a different perspective, a different way to honor the experience.

And then there is that very rare photographer, that one in a million, who makes you gasp out loud from the astonishment that a person’s soul, a person’s spirit, that essence that you have always known in them but could never describe to others, really can be put in a frame for all the world to see.

Jaki Hawthorne is this photographer. She is all of these photographers. She is even more.”

I have been photographed 3 sessions by Jaki. Amazing results every time. Feel the most comfortable around her during sessions; she is personable and able to pull the right “look” from you. Highly recommend!”

“Jaki is one of the best photographers I’ve ever worked with. She is passionate about her work, patient with her subjects, and provides a super fast turn around time. The photographs look amazing. I would recommend her to anyone!!!”

“Jaki is a wonderful photographer and I would recommend her to everyone looking for top quality photographs. What makes her so unique from other photographers is her ability to create a relaxed atmosphere. You can have beautiful photos – but if the session is not personable, then the photos look stiff.

When Jaki walks into the session, immediately there is an air of fun, personality, and professionalism. The subject becomes relaxed and then we have a beautiful photograph of a beautiful model. I have enjoyed every single one of my sessions (I’ve had 6 with Jaki) and will always hire her in the future.”

“I’m so glad I chose Jaki Hawthorne Photography for my first ever photoshoot. She gave great direction while allowing me freedom the freedom to be myself in front of the camera. I was able to get a ton of high-quality photos for a reasonable price, and I would definitely use this company in the future. Jaki is a true professional!”
