Welcome to J&A portraits, State College PA’s premier family portrait photographer! Whether you are just starting a new family and planning for your first family photograph, or your kids are grown and you are looking to add to your years of memories, we’d love to serve you. Watching families grow is one of the most rewarding parts of our job and we can’t get enough!

We really do feel very honored to be apart of something so important to your family. “The first thing you’d save in a fire”, “your most precious possessions”, you’ve heard all the cliches about family portraits but they are oh so true. All those precious little moments – the looks, the smiles, the giggles, and even the tears, that make up your family’s story – are the things most worth remembering and sharing in this life.

Family portraits are so much more than just a record of what you look like, or a status symbol to hang in your home and show off to your friends. They are instant heirlooms that will become more and more precious to you as the years pass.

Give us a call and we will work with you to create lasting works of art that you will proudly display for generations.

Thank you so much for your patience with our crazy one year old! The pictures are amazing and I cannot wait to display them in our new home. We will definitely be back for family and holiday photos. Thank you again and we cannot wait to work with you again!

Joel did an amazing job during our newborn session. Jack was 7 days old and as a first-time mom I was worried about how things would go. Joel immediately put me and Jack at ease, and I was able to sit back and enjoy the session. Joel was so kind and patient, and our photos are beautiful. I’m so glad I had J&A capture those moments for me. Truly wonderful photographers and even better people!

Excellent from start to finish! We couldn’t be happier with our experience getting our newborns pictures taken with J&A. They did an amazing job working with our little guy and the pictures are phenomenal as a result of their talent and attention to detail.
