Jackie produces a style of photography that is uniquely hers, yet idealized by others. She has an incredible, natural ability to command a shoot that makes her clients feel at ease. Throughout the entire process, she treated me like I was the most important person in the world. She is a fun and fantastic photographer who produces high quality shots that you will not find anywhere else. I couldn’t of asked for a better portrait. Jackie will capture your essence and beautify it to the max! My business only goes to her.

WE GOT MARRIED AT THE COURTHOUSE AND ASKED JACKIE OF DAKOTA LENOX TO DOCUMENT THE DAY, BECAUSE WE WANTED SOME CHILL SHOTS OF US AROUND OUR HOMETOWN OF MILWAUKEE. SHE WAS SO GOOD AT SPOTTING GREAT BACKGROUNDS AROUND THE CITY AS WELL AS DIRECTING PERFECT POSES THAT REALLY CAPTURED THE RELAXED ATTITUDE OF THE DAY. NOT TO MENTION, THE CANDID SHOTS PERFECTLY SHOW THE EMOTIONS WE BOTH WERE EXPERIENCING. I’M NOT THE TYPE THAT ENJOYS TAKING “MUSHY” PHOTOS, BUT SHE MADE EVERYTHING SO FUN AND RELAXED THAT IT WASN’T AWKWARD FOR ME AT ALL. SHE GIVES OFF THIS VIBE THAT MADE BOTH OF US CHANNEL OUR INNER JAMES DEAN, WHICH RESULTED IN THE SEXIEST PHOTOS EVER! THE PERFECT WORD TO DESCRIBE JACKIE’S PHOTOGRAPHS IS SIMPLY “BEAUTIFUL.

FOR OUR ONE YEAR WEDDING ANNIVERSARY, I DECIDED THAT I WANTED TO DO A BOUDOIR SHOOT AS A GIFT FOR MY HUSBAND. ALTHOUGH A LITTLE APPREHENSIVE ABOUT THE WHOLE EXPERIENCE, I STARTED LOOKING AROUND FOR THE RIGHT PHOTOGRAPHER. I COULDN’T BE HAPPIER THAT I WENT WITH DAKOTA LENOX PHOTOGRAPHY. JACKIE WAS AMAZING TO WORK WITH IN SO MANY WAYS. FROM HELPING GUIDE THROUGH OUTFIT CHOICES (I DIDN’T KNOW WHERETO BEGIN!) TO DIRECTING POSES, SHE MADE THE ENTIRE SESSION FUN. I WAS SO IMPRESSED THAT SHE WAS ABLE TO MAKE ME FEEL COMFORTABLE (AND NOT AWKWARD) EVEN AS I WAS IN LINGERIE! THE PICTURES DEFINITELY EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS. AND NOT TO MENTION, MY HUSBAND LOVES THEM. I WOULD RECOMMEND BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY WITH JACKIE TO ANYONE!

We have had the pleasure of working with Jackie for our family portraits. Her contagious relaxing laugh made our amazing photos possible. She brought us to a level of comfort that made all our pictures so natural and beautiful. We had a very hard time choosing from the gallery she gave us. Jackie is an amazing photographer, with a fantastic personality that can shed any camera shyness away.

After years of collaboration, as both her subject and colleague, it feels like quite a feat to pinpoint what it is about Jackie that makes her an exceptional photographer. I can appreciate that getting your picture taken, even professionally, isn’t always the most comfortable experience to ease into. Jackie, by contrast, makes the whole experience so natural, which is why I love working with her. Even when I’m in front of her camera, it still feels like a collaborative exchange, because she listens to my expectations, and any reservations I might have, and makes sure the whole process remains fun. She offers clever suggestions and gentle guidance to help create the best possible outcome. She’s my top pick for all things portrait and I can’t wait to work with her again.

THE FIRST TIME WE MET JACKIE HER CONFIDENCE AND PROFESSIONALISM PUT US IMMEDIATELY AT EASE...

SHE HAS A GIFT FOR TAKING THE ORDINARY, ADDING HER ARTISTIC FLAIR THROUGH ANGLE AND LIGHTING, AND MAKING IT EXTRAORDINARY! JACLYN WAS ABLE TO BRING OUT THE CREATIVE SIDE IN US WITH HER UNIQUE POSES, POSITIVE ENERGY, AND ARTFUL EYE. HER PHOTOGRAPHIC KNOWLEDGE AND PASSION FOR HER CRAFT GAVE US AN END RESULT THAT GREATLY EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS!
— TERESA & LAUREL
I have always hated getting my photo taken since high school, and never felt at ease in front of a camera. Jackie instantly made me feel not only comfortable getting my photo taken, but confident! She walked me through the process, and answered any questions I had before and during the shoot. I was really hesitant to do something out of my comfort zone but am so glad I did! I can’t wait to work with Jackie again!

Jackie does not take photos…she creates an experience that lasts a lifetime. We were fortunate to have Jackie come to our house and photograph our family after the birth of our daughter. She captured this moment in our lives perfectly and effortlessly in her unique, gentle way. Her style was much appreciated as having an infant and a toddler can be stressful, especially when it comes to taking photos. Our stress did make her miss a beat, instead she was able to take beautiful photos of our family simply by letting us have fun and play as we normally do during family time. When Jackie presented us with our photos, she also, unexpectedly, presented us with a slideshow set to music. Her exact statement to us was, “your story needed to be put to music.” The photos she created were breath taking, but the crown jewel was the emotionally powerful slide show. It is a piece of art that moves people with every viewing and our family will treasure throughout the years.
