"We have used Jessica for family portraits for years! She does a wonderful job with the kids and the photographs are beautiful! We recently did the Santa Workshop, the wall art and the experience is unforgettable for the kids, they still talk about it!"
Caitlyn SowersZanesville, OH
Your children (and yes, they will be your "children" even when they're married and have kids of their own) are growing up and becoming more like adults every day.
Don't you wish you could just "freeze time" and hold these special moments forever?
My name is Jessica Tysinger and capturing wonderful family memories is my passion. I'm a professional family & children photographer, but more than that, I'm just like you... I'm a family person.
Can you relate to this at all? I wake up every morning and wonder where the time is going. Do you ever do that?
Have you noticed that, the older you and your children get, the faster time seems to fly?
I'm very lucky - I get to see my four young boys everyday, growing, learning and discovering who they are.
HOW I WILL HELP YOU TELL THE STORY OF YOUR CHILDREN THROUGH EMOTIONAL, SENSITIVE PORTRAITURE...
"Power Portraits has taken some of my favorite photographs of my kids - from sports to in the studio. They are wonderful with kids and make sure to take many photographs to get the perfect shot. I highly recommend Power Portraits."

5 Myths, Mistakes And Misconceptions About Having A Family Portrait Created - The Stuff 99% Of All People In The World Don't Know:
You're here, so on some level, you must at least be considering having a portrait of your family and/or children created. Well, that's great - there are few decisions you can make that will bring you more lasting joy.
However, there are some things you NEED to know before you and your loved ones step in front of any camera.
You may feel that having portraits done is going to be a lot of work on your part.
Well, it isn't! In fact, that could almost be one of the "myths or mistakes" right there. As long as you know the information I'm sharing with you here, it won't be any work at all on your part.
....So, let's jump right in!
#1 Myth, Mistake Or Misconception: "There's No Way To GUARANTEE I Will Love My Portraits."
This is SO wrong - you actually can (and should) have it guaranteed! Just suppose you had a family portrait created and your son or daughter didn't look natural in it. The photograph was "ok" but it didn't turn out spectacular. Should you have to pay for it? ABSOLUTELY NOT! I believe strongly that no one should ever have to pay for a photograph that isn't PERFECT. That's why I am the only photographer in your area to offer the following guarantee:
CHECK THIS OUT - A Guarantee Unlike Any You've Ever Heard: If Your Family Or Children Don't Look The Happiest & Best They've Ever Looked Together In These Photographs - If You Don't Cry (tears of joy) When You Look At Them - I'll Do Everything In My Power To Make Sure Your ARE Thrilled, Or I'll Give You All Your Money Back.
That's my guarantee and personal promise to you. As far as I know, there's no other photographer around that will make you a guarantee worded like this. These photographs will be completely meaningless to you unless they convey the real emotions and relationships between you and your loved ones. That's the only real reason to have a family and children portraits created.
So, if FOR ANY REASON you feel that the photographs I create for you are anything less than perfect - if you don't actually cry when I show them to you for the first time, I'll do everything it takes to make you very happy or I'll give you all your money back. It's that simple.
If I don't end up being your photographer, make ABSOLUTELY SURE your photographer offers this strong of a guarantee. If they are good at what they do, they should back up their work by taking all the risk off of you.
#2 Myth, Mistake Or Misconception: "All Family Portraits Are Created Equal."
Nothing could be further from the truth. If you're at all like most people, you've probably had this question going through your mind: "How do I choose the right photographer?" In fact, you may even have thought of someone in your family - an uncle, a grandparent, even a friend - who is a bit of an amateur photographer. Why not just have that person create the photograph of your family and children?
Question: "Just Suppose Someone Were To Create The Perfect Family Portrait - One Where You And Your Loved Ones Looked Better Than Ever, Happier Than Ever - A Portrait That Meant The World To You - What Would That Be Worth?"
No price tag can be put on your family's memories. They are and always will be priceless. So, why would you ever want to gamble with those memories? It's just a question of whether you believe a portrait of your family/children could really mean that much to you.
If you were sick and had to go to a doctor, would you want the "cheapest" doctor or the best one? Well, there's really no question. It should be the same thing with your family's memories. You can certainly find a cheaper photographer in town. But there are other things to consider than just price...
The Photographer You Choose Should Care About YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR MEMORIES, Not Just About "Making Money" Off You.
I pride myself on becoming a family friend of every family I photograph. You see, I didn't get into photography to get rich. Believe me, there are better (and easier) ways to make money. But I CHOSE to become a professional family and children photographer. Why did I make that choice? Because I finally realized that all the money in the world meant nothing to me if I didn't feel like I was making a difference.
Does it seem like life is just FLYING by? Do you find yourself thinking about doing some things, then, before you know it, a month, a year, 5 years have gone by?
"Our children's session was more like a V.I.P. session. The level of professionalism was second to none.....from assisting with wardrobe selection to capturing the genuine smiles, the children's portrait session was nothing but a positive experience for all! Not to mention the exceptional quality wall portrait the never misses a compliment when guests enter our home!"

I Realized That Memories Were Priceless - That There Was No More Noble Or Wonderful Profession Than To Become A "Memory Giver".
I didn't become a photographer because I liked to take photographs. Don't get me wrong, I do like the "art" of photography, but that's NOT the reason I first picked up a camera.
Time is the one thing that none of us have enough of. It's the one thing that money can't buy. It's the one thing that we all would give just about anything for. Through photography, we can hold on to the moments in our lives that we wish could last forever. And, if it's done correctly, these same photographs can become works of art that we display in our homes for everyone to see and share.
Don't Make The Decision As To Who Will Photograph Your Family And Children Until You Chat With Me. There Are Things You'll Want To Ask The Photographers...
There's no cost and no obligation to just chat with me and it will make the whole difference as to how great your portraits will look. Simply CALL ME at 740-819-4555, just to chat.
Don't worry. I'm not going to try to "sell you" on working with me. I'm already very busy and I don't need to pressure anyone to work with me as a photographer. I'll just talk to you about your portraits and help you discover what your photographs could be like.
If you decide to have me create your portraits - great. If not, no problem. I just want you to make the right decision FOR YOU, no matter what that ends up being.
#3 Myth, Mistake Or Misconception: "Family Portraits Have To Be Created In A Professional Studio - And They Have To Look Boring."
If you're like most people, when you think of a PROFESSIONAL family portrait, you think of all of you gathered in front of a "painted background" in a photography studio, posed unnaturally and all saying "cheese" as the photographer takes the photograph. Now, is that something any family will cherish for a lifetime? I think not. Yes, it may capture the whole family together, but it will never capture your family relationships - your family's love.
Picture instead: All of you gathered in your favorite room in your home or outside on the new deck you just had built or in your backyard by the pine trees that give your yard so much character. All of you are dressed in clothes the photographer helped you choose - clothing that conveys your individual personalities, but still looks great together.
One of the things that sets me apart from the other photographers out there is: I will create this image in a location that is meaningful TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY - at no extra charge!
That's what makes all the difference and that's what I will do for you. And This is SO Important: All Of You Feel Totally Comfortable In Front Of The Camera!
Do you know ANYONE who feels totally comfortable in front of a camera? I'll bet you don't. I don't. Nearly everyone I've ever met tells me the same thing: "I never look natural in pictures". The last thing you want is a photograph where you or your family members have that fake "posed" look on your face.
That's why it's so important that you feel very natural and comfortable with your photographer. Just think of how great your family would look if your best friend was creating the photograph. You would all look so happy and natural if done right! I take pride in developing very close relationships with all my clients and their entire family.
Plus, I understand the "psychology" of photography. Learning the technical aspects. Understanding deeply what lenses to use, what lighting looks best, how clothing adds and subtracts weight in photography - all of those things are only the tip of the iceberg. Without being able to make each and every one of your family members look and feel comfortable (and natural) in the photographs, all those technical things would amount to nothing.
And, you'll NEVER hear me utter the words "say cheese". That's a surefire way of getting expressions that look totally fake and unnatural. No - a great photographer knows that in order to get a great expression from a subject, you need to get to know that subject a bit - to know what will make them smile naturally. That's what I do and I love it! I will get to know your whole family so well and they will feel so comfortable with me that their expressions will be perfect every time.
#4 Myth, Mistake Or Misconception: "There's No One To Help Me Make Choices About Clothing, Hair, Makeup, Location, etc..."
Okay, normally you would be right thinking that. However, I pride myself in being different. I'm going to help you with all of those things, WHETHER I'M YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER OR NOT.
My Experience Photographing Families - Yours FREE - Without Any Obligation.
Okay, by now you are probably considering having a family/children portrait created. You may even be considering choosing me as your photographer -but I don't want you to make that decision just yet.
No matter who creates your photographs for you, you will need to make some decisions. What clothing should your family wear? Where should this photograph be created? How heavy should the makeup be on the ladies in the photograph? There are a number of things to think about and I will walk you through all of them personally.
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO RIGHT THIS SECOND? (and why?) Pick up the phone and call my studio at 740-819-4555.
Even if it's after business hours, still call right now. I've got voice mail that is just waiting to cheerfully take your message and I'll personally call you back so we can chat. Just let me know when is a good time to call you back. Don't worry, I'm not going to try to "pressure" you at all into working with me. Plus, there's no cost at all for us just to chat.
When you call we'll chat briefly about the things you need to know. I'll tell you a bit about me and I'll find out more about what's truly most important to you about your portraits. I'll answer all your questions about how to prepare for a family portrait. It won't be a long call, but it will be one of the most important calls you make.
We Can Stop The Clock. Memories Are The Most Valuable Thing We Own.
"My family means the world to me. The photograph you created of us is our most cherished possession. Every day I look at the portrait, I realize how lucky I really am. Thank you for creating such a lasting and special memory."

#5 Myth, Mistake Or Misconception: "There's No Rush To Have A Family Portrait Created Right Now."
You know how things are. If you don't pick up the phone right now and at least call me to chat about your family portrait, you will probably get swamped with other things and forget all about it. Then, before you know it, a year - two years - five years have gone by. How different will your family be then?
You see, time is ticking.... and it's never going to stop.
First, Your Child Takes His or Her First Step. Next, Learns To Ride A Bike. Later, Gets A Driver's Licence. Graduates From High School. Gets Married. Starts A Family Of His or Her Own.
These are precious times and although things will change this moment never has to slip from your fingers.
Don't put this off. You know how life is. We put things off and before we know it everything has changed. If your life is half as crazy as mine is, year after year you find yourself frustrated at the things you wanted to do and never got done. A family/children portrait is something you deserve.
Life is so terribly short. But, at the same time, life is such a wonderful gift. And the memories we keep of these moments with our family will last forever.
Why Your Family Portrait Will Become More Valuable To You Than Anything Else In Your Home: Do you have a photograph of your family that, if you were running from your burning home, would be the one thing you save (other than your family members, of course) on the way out?
Now, I'm not talking about a "snapshot" that was taken during a family outing on the fourth of July. I'm talking about a wonderful photograph created by a professional photographer that not only captures your family's true bonds and relationships, but also does so in a way that you'd be proud to display openly in your home for the rest of your life.
I truly hope this has been helpful to you and that you see how seriously I take what I do and how much I absolutely LOVE creating photography for families like yours.
I hope to talk with you soon and find out exactly what you're looking for and to help you to have a family portrait that you will look at, love and cherish ever day of your life. Call me now... anytime.
