Hi there! I’m Jessica owner and photographer at Jessica Clayton Photography. I am a local photographer with studio located in Castle Rock. I have been providing services to the Douglas county area since 2010.

About my style
I don't have one "set style" because most of the time my sessions are customized for each client. I have a modest studio near the heart of Castle Rock and also shoot on location weather permitting.

My studio style is typically a mix between organic and traditional and a little bit more posed than outdoor sessions.
