behind the lens

I started my photography company for the love of photography, taking photographs, editing and connecting with people and creating memories for all different types of families. Kids are naturally drawn to me, whether it be my short stature or goofy attitude it made me focus most of my career as a family photographer while still being able to dedicate my time to branding and commercial photography as well! I just love creating for people, and making friends along the way! 

Meet Jess

After I got my first Polaroid camera when I was 8 years old, my twin sister and I decided to open up a photography studio in our basement. We went around to all the neighbors, knocked on their door, and invited them to come to our photography studio for a photo shoot. We charged everyone who came $1.00 per photo. We had backdrops, props, make-up, and costumes. When my Mom found out, she made us return all of the money! But as it turned out, that became the first time I profited from photography, because a Mother of two of the children came back and begged my Mom to let us take photos of her children. Now I have a studio of my own that my own Mom and Dad built! I am blessed that my Mom took photos of EVERYTHING as my two sisters and I were growing up! I have a terrible memory but whenever I see a photo, it somehow brings me back to that moment, and for that, I will always cherish photography and what it does for me and other people.

I moved on from that polaroid to film and SLR cameras when I was in middle school throughout high school and progressed to digital cameras in college, taking classes throughout the years. I was one of those people who ALWAYS had their camera waiting for the perfect shot! After getting an iPhone I noticed I stopped using my "good camera" and really lost a big part of myself. I used to live for learning how to take a certain picture and going back to edit on Photoshop...I missed being creative!! I am so happy to be fully back into photography for the last 9 years and I can't wait to see what's to come!

It all started with a polaroid camera and a secret side hustle.

Kind Words from Clients

“Jess is amazing. She has been taking photos of my kids, my husband and I for the past few years and she never ceases to amaze me! She has creative shots, awesome edits and she is really good w/ getting the kids to pay attention (which is no small feat). She is even very patient with me as I am not a huge fan of having my photo taken. And I can be a bit of a pain! She is kind and always professional. I HIGHLY recommend her for photos.”
