Campaign Description

JAC Photography specializes in high-end newborn, child and family photography, capturing precious moments to last a lifetime. Like much of the world post-2020, we daring to reimagine the way we do photography to continue to bring our clients the personal and exclusive experience they expect from us, while becoming more accessible, efficient and safe.

Who We Are

JAC Photography is a family business featuring Jody Ann Crane (the JAC) a professional photographer of over 25 years of experience artistically capturing those perfectly imperfect family moments or documenting the wonder of a child discovering the magic this world holds. Her passion lies in creating keepsakes that evoke memories and emotions of a precious moment in time of her clients.

Geoff Crane is the man behind the curtain of this Wizard of Oz production. Jody's dedicated husband and top cheerleader handles many of the daily operations and behind the scenes busy work to ensure Jody is able to focus completely on her clients and creativity.

At JAC Photography we believe that life can be magical but also fast moving. It is important to take a moment and celebrate that.

What Will We Use Our Crowdfunding For?

To be able to offer these new and unique features of our business, we'll need to update our equipment to give us the mobility, creativity and safety our client deserve.

Portable newborn station and props - Allowing us to meet newborn clients in the comfort of their own home, while still maintaining our signature style and ensuring baby's safety.

Travel lighting apparatus - New lightweight lighting that won't take up too much space.

Upgraded Computers - One for editing a higher volume of sessions and a laptop to edit and work while on the road.

Camera and lenses - Updated equipment to pull double duty of photos and video. Also serves as a backup should my other camera fail.

The BIG Plan

We are daring to reinvent the way we run our studio for the post-covid world by becoming more mobile, providing safe, yet fun and relaxed portrait sessions for newborn/children, families and teaching opportunities for other photographers.

Our plan is to expand our service to offer in-home, outdoor, studio or travel sessions as well as new custom concepts child sessions. We are also adding a new feature of behind the scene's videos to capture those precious moments in between the flashes of a clients photo shoot.

This is where YOU come in. Your support of our campaign will help JAC Photography level up from an at-home photography studio to a modern and accessible photography service. With your backing we'll be able to make the necessary equipment upgrades we'll need as well  as ensure our business can be more adaptable to changes in our world, like a health pandemic.

Meet the Team

Jody Ann Crane

Jody Ann Crane

Owner and Founder

Jody Ann has been shooting since she was 15 years old, when her high school offered a photography darkroom course; so if you add it up....that's 26 years! WOAH. She is a wifey & mama of four, aged 12, 10, 6 and 3 months old!
They are by far her fave subjects to photograph, even thought they don't share the sentiment!

Jody Ann specializes in clean, timeless, styled newborn studio portraits, natural light outdoor photography and colourful and custom, fine art portraiture. She offers maternity, family, children and newborn portraits and sometimes sprinkles in weddings and bridal portraits. (She just loves the dynamics of PEOPLE!)

Jody has spent over 13 years crafting her niche in newborn photography and has photographed hundreds of babies, using finely crafted posing techniques that not only capture the sweetness of a newborn but do it safely. This has turned into a love of teaching other photographers the same techniques.

When not taking pictures, Jody Ann also offers virtual fitness coaching and enjoys sharing mom life, fashion and product finds, and her own postpartum fitness journey on social channels. Off time is spent snuggling her own babies, hanging out at Indigo or watching HGTV, dreaming up renos with the hubs.

Geoff  Crane

Geoff Crane

Manager of everything JAC assigns

Geoff has been one of Jody's most loyal fans. In fact, their first date included a surprise photo shoot of Geoff in some of Jody's favourite scenic spots in southern Ontario. The only photographer who ever made him feel almost at ease in front of a lens, Geoff knew Jody was the one for him.

When not wearing the hat of dad to their four children, administrator to  JAC Photography or one of many other roles, Geoff is a self-confessed sports-a-holic. While he can appreciate all sports, some of his favourites include ice hockey, American football and most recently Formula 1 racing. Some of his other interests are playing sports, watching sports, talking about sports and building his soon-to-be released podcast about...... sports!

Geoff is a born and raised Calgarian who has also lived in Ontario, Canada, Utah, Idaho and Colorado. He earned a degree in journalism from Mount Royal University. He and Jody have been married for 15 years.
