Hi! I am Jess

For more than half of my life, I have had the pleasure of being a professional photographer. I have come to the happy realization that photography is going to be a life-long career for me, which is super cool because I love, love, love being a photographer. I think it is funny when my clients say "She's a real photographer". It's ok, I know what they mean but I can't help to think to myself ...opposed to a fake or invisible one?!

After 10,000 plus photo-shoots and over 600 weddings, everyday I continue to strive, explore and refine my craft. Most photographers find a niche and stay within that groove, I prefer to keep growing and stretching beyond my comfort zone. At one time, all I photographed was weddings, then high school seniors, then babies, children and families. I love that I have reached that point in my career where I am able to focus on what I enjoy doing. Plus, I have acquired quite a collection of tools, equipment, props and backgrounds.

You can trust that I will lead you down the right path because I know what works and what doesn't. I know when, where and how to create the photography that you will truly love and desire. So much so, you will want it for your "real" walls and not just for your Facebook wall.

I think this is why I have so many life-long clients because I am always doing something new, stylish and different. I am 100% focused (pun intended) on creating the session and photography of your dreams. This is why I spend a great deal of my time preparing for your session and sharing my creative process with you.

All photographers have a unique way of working. They also vary in the services they offer.  I know this makes it difficult to determine the value of one photographer over another, however my dedication to quality is why so many of my clients continue to entrusted me with their memories, milestones and once-in-a-lifetime events. 





What I Do

What I Do


It's your Legacy...

When you want to remember and be remembered, beautifully.

One of the things I greatly admire about photography is its ability to capture life and emotions. There is nothing more incrediable to me than when I catch genuine emotion, using the right lens, in the right light on the perfect background and at the best angle. It transcends everything because it's no longer just a photo or a moment, it becomes a part of a legacy.

I am a portrait and wedding photographer, it's what I do. Through my experience and expertise, I help people to be to be natural and comfortable in front of my camera while looking and feeling their best.  I love working with all ages from newborns to elderly, including fur babies.

Although I have a studio location, I am only there by appointment.

My office hours vary from day to day, but generally I am available for calls 10am to 3pm Tuesday thru Friday. If I am not readily available, please leave a voicemail. I do my best to return messages and voicemail within a few days because you are important to me. However, during peak times messages do have a tendency to avalanche. It's very frustrating, and I am constantly working to find a solution.

If you don't hear from me within a few days, please contact me again.
