Happy Customers

We love the people we work with, and they love us!

“Chloe and her team are simply the best in the game! I’ve been working with them for about a year now and they bring expert knowledge and great energy to any event. They’re exceedingly easy to work with, they’ll give you ideas for photos, and they always arrive prepared. They’ll stage you in the most flattering way, make sure your poses present your best, and capture key moments so you can have them for years to come. I only wish I was throwing more events so I could work with them more!”

– Amir W.

“Chloe and her team are amazing. They were patient, understanding, transparent, and professional through the entire process. I had headshots done at the studio and the experience was everything. My shoot was full of encouragement, hilarity, and warmth that made me feel so comfortable, seen, and cared for, allowing me to open up, be vulnerable and really embrace the moment. This showed in the photos. The entire portfolio is incredible, varied, and I have so many options from which to choose. I will be booking for a shoot for the rest of my team.”

– Tenesha D.

“Chloe and her team are absolutely FABULOUS. My team went to Chloe to get professional headshots taken, and we had the best time. Her studio is a beautifully crafted playground filled with green plants, artwork, props, furniture, creative backdrops, etc. Chloe’s bubbly personality made it fun and relaxed, and she made sure we all got the best shot. I would recommend Chloe not only for professional photos, but for any life experience / event. Can’t wait to hire her and her team again!”

– Molli C.

Chloe I Chief Hype Woman

 I’m a city girl born & raised in San Francisco, who married a boy she met in preschool (ask me more and I’ll tell you all about it). We have a beautiful son named Alonzo Barack, a one-eyed cat named Isabel and oh yeah, we run this fabulous business together!  

I started Chloe Jackman Studios over 15 years ago and way back when I’m not sure I ever imagined it would be this epic.  It’s beautiful and I am endlessly grateful.  We are a team or as I prefer to say a family of diverse, sarcastic, caring, thoughtful, talented, funny humans and we can’t wait to make magic with you!  ✨

She has a slight obsession with house plants and even has a few rare tropical ones, but her true babies are actually cacti and succulents. She also recently started an apartment garden with tomatoes, jalapeños, serrano peppers, oranges, lemons, basil, chives, and cilantro.

Lisa Frare | Lead Associate Photographer


Lisa grew up in Upstate NY but moved to SF a decade ago with $600, no job prospects and a lot of enthusiasm for what was to come in this beautiful city.  She began photographing weddings with her dad back in high school and camera-in-hand has been her favorite way to experience a party ever since! Lisa loves connecting with people and helping them to really feel their best when behind the camera.

    I was born and raised in Tracy, California. I moved to Treasure Island in 2017 after earning a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communications from Notre Dame de Namur University.

I honed photography, videography and editing skills while working for the NBA from 2014-2018, and during this time I found my true passion for photography and digital media.
