Kind Words from Jai's Clients...
"Jai is magical. She captured more in me than I see in myself... I almost cried when I saw the final images… Thank you Jai!”
-Jess, Portrait client
“Something magical happens when a creative genius unleashes her gift. It's even more exciting when you are in the middle of that moment. Thank you Jai Mayhew for sharing your talent with me. I couldn't even imagine these images.”
- Vickie, Portrait client
“Jai is a genius with an eye like I’ve never seen before!”
- Brady, Portrait client & Makeup Artist
"Like many women I struggle with self-esteem and scars from my past that make it impossible for me to feel beautiful. I booked a session with Jai as an attempt to celebrate myself. Just thinking about standing in front of a camera pretending to be pretty was painful and hard and the day of the shoot I almost didn’t go. But I did and I’m forever grateful for it. During the shoot Jai affirmed me and encouraged me and just made me feel beautiful. When I saw the pictures I cried. I couldn’t believe that was me. I looked beautiful. This shoot was an act of love for myself and I think I found more self-love in that day than I had in years of therapy. Thank you Jai, for everything.”
-Susie*, Portrait client (*name changed by request)

"Jai works magic with her camera. She sees something incredible in you and brings it to life in a way you never imagined. I think that’s the difference between a photographer and an artist, and Jai is a crazy talented artist.”
-Theresa, Portrait client
“My maternity shoot made me feel beyond beautiful in my new found body. When you’re pregnant for very the first time and you watch your body change so rapidly, your confidence can be easily shaken. Going into the shoot with Jai, she was very friendly and made me feel comfortable all throughout our shoot. I left my shoot feeling confident that my maternity photos would come out looking gorgeous as if they came directly out of a magazine. Not only did I fall In love with the results of our maternity photos but my friends and family loved them as well. Thank you so much, Jai. xo”
- Josie, Maternity client
"Jai took the time and effort to make my daughter Grace feel comfortable, confident and beautiful. As those of you with young daughters (or those who remember being young daughters) know, that is an extremely difficult, an almost impossible task. This one special day, allowed Grace to see the beauty in her uniqueness. The characteristics that make her different...her freckles, her hair...were the things Jai praised the most. It is the inner strength, confidence, appreciation and beauty that Grace gained on that day that I appreciate the most. Thank you, more than I can express, THANK YOU!!!"
- Christie, Mother of a Portrait client

From hair, to makeup, to champagne - every detail was thought out and made me feel incredibly special and excited to see my photos. Jai is a talented photographer who also has the wonderful gift of making her clients feel at ease.
