AINT IT FUNNY HOW

life changes

Hi. Im Jess.
I'm the owner and builder of this sweet little biz that I began eight years ago. This is my full time gig. I SPECIALIZE in documenting people. From birth, into adulthood, all the way up to 100 years of beautiful life, and just about everything in between. I believe in the imperfect joy of real connection and insane happiness as it *actually* happens. Belly laughs, toddler meltdowns, real moments, all the hair flips, mama's smooches, and the love between a couple of parents surrounded by an array of babies they've been guiding through this world. 

I'm a soccer mom to two ridiculously hilarious, attention-needing, big dreaming, and wild little boys (8 & 5), the full-time owner/accountant/book-keeper/photographer/editor/social media manager/marketing executive/customer service rep of this awesome business I'm in, and married to another amazing, handsome, hard-working, kickass business owner himself. ShoutOUT to my handsome husband Chad and his awesome business. 

My day to day life isn't much different from my work one. We're super laid back and go with the flow. It's the way I know how to create my best art and make my clients the most comfortable, yep, even those dads that despise having their photos taken. When you show up for your session, prepare to just be hanging out with your new best friend (not by any choice of your own...it's by default. We're best friends now.) If you have any reason to want to document your family or no reason at all other than just because, i'd love to work with you. <3

it all...

about Jess

I treat my business like I treat my everyday life. Laid back and go with the flow. I've spent a lot of time figuring out what type of photographer I am, and it's simply come down to the fact that nothing lights up my soul more than seeing that *click* moment, when a parent realizes their baby is in their first round of senior activities and the countdown has officially begun. A pre-teen boy snuggling up to his mama. A baby girl smooching all over her daddy's cheeks. Those little brothers tackling big brothers, and moms and dads seamlessly going from parents to blocking out the world in a quick split second moment wrapped up in each other, just before those babies they raised realize they're attention isn't on them and grab it all over again. I document life. Just the way it is, unforced and unmasked. Just show up and let us do the rest. <3
