Hey, friend! I'm Jessica.
Most days you can find me drinking an iced lavender latte, listening to my daughter's Spotify playlist and wondering how the heck I got so un-cool, and forcing my pandemic puppy Aspen to snuggle. If there's a good bowl of pho within a hundred mile radius, you better believe I will find it. I'm a huge adventurer and love to travel, especially if it's to the mountains or the beach. I am the most extroverted of extroverts and have never met a stranger - my friends often say that I'm the type of person you feel immediately comfortable with.
Though I do give a couple traditional portraits, forcing everyone to smile for more than a few seconds just isn't my jam. It might be because I still have some PTSD from my itchy tights in the Olan Mills days, or also the fact that I've lost a parent too soon in life and know exactly how it feels to ONLY have images left of them to look back on. The images that I truly treasure of my own people aren't the forced smiles or holiday cards, but rather the way I held my dad's face and kissed his nose, or the image my grandmother snapped of my mom with her sisters laughing in the water one day at the shore. I strive to capture the love and beauty of your family so your memories are cherished in the VERY best way.
Is your toddler a tornado? Been there, done that with my own kids. Instead of stressing about how she won't sit still, let's turn her love of exploring into our biggest adventure and remember her exactly as she was at that point in her life.
Does your preschooler hate to smile? I think deep expressions on children are some of the most beautiful and timeless of all. Plus, after all the fun games we will play, I bet we will sneak one out.
Styling is also one of my FAVORITE parts of photography, which is why I have poured my heart into curating a truly incredible client closet for moms and children up to size 7. I love empowering you about what photographs best, what colors to stay away from, and making this a one-stop-shop to help elevate your experience
Time is a thief, friends. These babies of ours just don't keep. Does this resonate with you? If we sound like a match, reach out and let's do this!
