Vanessa Mendez Photography

Kind Words


So much more than pictures

"I’m not quite sure where to begin. So I’ll start at the beginning. Vanessa was recommend to us by our wonderful midwife while I was pregnant with our third baby and planning a HBA2C. I spent so much time researching and reading reviews and decided my midwife knew what she was talking about! Her exact words were “Vanessa is so sweet and truly loves birth photography!” I contacted Vanessa and immediately felt this huge relief. I had been stressing about finding the “perfect” photographer...." -Jessica

"captured the emotion"

"Oh Vanessa, what can I say about her that hasn't already been mentioned...she really is an incredible woman and artist. I took a leap and hired her last minute and she has captured the emotion of my son's birth with beautiful and creative shots beyond any expectation. I'm so thankful for you and your work & I wish you all the best on your continued journey" - Jasmine

   "most important moments"

"I can't tell you enough how blessed I am to have Vanessa capture the maternity and birth pictures of our miracle baby Jude. From my cancer diagnosis- stress from being through 6 rounds of chemo w Jude, she was always there; during labor she was patient, calm and captured the most AMAZING pictures for us. Even our first& last time breastfeeding before my double mastectomy. I highly highly recommend Vanessa. Pictures are beautiful and she captured the most important moments! I'm happy to now call her one of my good friends!!" - Reagan

"Vanessa's superb professionalism and skill are equally matched by her kind and considerate personality- she was the perfect compliment to my birth support team, and her photos captured the memory of my daughters birth beautifully.

"eye to capture the most intimate moments"

"Vanessa was more then amazing!! She not only became our photographer but a friend. She guided me through the process of what to expect from the beginning. She answered every and all questions with love and kindness. When she got the call I was in labor at 12am she rushed over and even beat us to the birthing center!!! Vanessa knows what she is doing and has an eye to capture the most intimate moments of birth in the most amazing way. I will never forget her. - Lexi"
