Memories.“You are gone but thank you for all these soft, sweet things you have left behind in my home, in my head, in my heart….”-Nikita Gill

On the morning of April 3, 2020, Jessica went to be with God after a courageous 3.5 year battle with cancer. 

She lived life with a generous heart, a passion for her work, love for her family, and an unforgettable laugh. 

A Go Fund Me page has been established to support the Norwood family during this time. Please lift up Jeff, Locke, Archer, and her entire family with your prayers and love. 

Note to Jessica's clients: Jessica has designated Kate Carlson as her Dedicated Colleague and Client Liaison. She can be reached at [email protected] or (310) 291-9223

Jessica Claire photography is one of my favorite photographers to work with! Her work is stunning in every way. Jessica Norwood is professional and wonderful to work with. Her photographs are simply timeless and every couple who has worked with her has loved their experience with her and of course their wedding photos.
I was referred to Jessica through a professional photographer friend (which speaks volumes in and of itself). All it took was a little research for me to quickly realize that she's one of the best in the field. And after getting a sense of her personality and process over the phone, I was sold. Despite the fact that she was on the opposite coast and our wedding was in another country, Jessica was the only photographer I would consider to capture our wedding - and I'm so glad that she did! Jessica was creative, flexible, efficient and knowledgeable. I especially appreciated that from the initial stages of planning through to the final album choices, she offered insight and advice from her vast experience while still being flexible and open to our ideas and preferences.  And my husband appreciated that she made our portrait session quick and painless!

A lot of photographers get the shot. To make a real impact it takes more than that.....Jessica's perceptive technique and her eye for style combine with her understanding of lighting and post production to record sharp and timeless memories.
Jessica has an absolute mastery of light.  She is always able to capture a stunning image – even in less than perfect conditions.  She has an innate ability to put you at ease, making the shoot seem effortless… and the outcome breathtaking. 
 I chose Jessica Claire before I chose my husband. I trust her completely and would recommend her to anyone without hesitation. She is the perfect combination of relaxed, fun, funny, confident, direct, and unfailingly professional. I treasure all the photos we have from her--from our engagement session, to our rehearsal dinner, to our wedding, to our newborn shoot!
Jessica was a consummate professional, her photographs were flawless, and her vision for our wedding (and the most beautiful way to capture our day) was impeccable. She made us feel at ease throughout the day and organized our family, friends and guests without hesitation in order to make the most of her time with us. We remarked at her use of lighting (both natural and interior), the framing of each photograph and the overall composition of each photograph. Above all else, Jessica is a wonderful person and we absolutely adore her!
