Austin Family Milestone Photographer

My name is Jessica and I am a mother of four with a passion for creating beautiful images to remember for the rest of your life. I believe that time spent with family is the best and I'm blessed to be able to capture your growing family from birth and beyond.
After giving birth to my babies, I found myself documenting so many moments through pictures & that's how Harper Rae Photography was born. I love to capture life as it unfolds. From meeting your baby for the first time, to celebrating their first birthday with a cake smash and all of the milestones in between and after, I want your images to take you back to the moments where you were busy making memories. Let's celebrate you, your littles, your family, and your life! I'd be happy to grab a cup of coffee and get to know you and your family so that together, we can create not only beautiful images, but memories as well!

We absolutely love our photos from our in home lifestyle newborn session with Jessica - It is such a special time for us and we couldn’t be happier to have been able to capture it so that we have something to look back on! It was a great experience and I’m so glad we did it, if you’re thinking about booking a session you should do it!

Jessica takes GORGEOUS pictures and makes the whole photo session super comfortable, laid back, and FUN! I couldn't be happier with the end result.



Jessica is so patient and sweet and instantly makes you feel comfortable! She listens to whatever you want to do and wants to make sure that you are happy! I am so thankful that I chose her for my birth photography. When she sent me my gallery, she had captured some of the most beautiful moments! Her pictures are just gorgeous!
