Hey, I'm Jessica, born and raised in Arizona, Mom of 3, musician, artist, and I love to take pictures of people. The emotions that come with getting your photo taken are so real, and I love it!
I grew up in a family of musicians/artists. When I was a kid, I'd wake up to my Dad transforming the family room into a studio. Camera gear covering the whole kitchen table, umbrella flash in front of the couch, backdrop covering the TV center, computer chair in the middle of the room with a white silky fabric draped on top covering the faded blue seat underneath. I was always excited to see this, and I would run back to my room to get my prettiest Sunday dress on, along with earrings and a necklace. I'd brush my thick, wavy hair, smack some chapstick on my lips and would be ready to go.
I never had the desire to practice photography until I graduated high school in 2006. I Went to Best buy with the money I had saved, looking to buy a camera. I began shooting with it the minute I got home and didn't ever really put it down. The first picture I ever took was of my faucet in the bathroom sink.
These days, I find joy and fulfillment in capturing things that I would have been scared to do when I first started. Shooting with the bright sun, large weddings, fast toddlers, extended families, and so on. I want to keep learning and practicing new techniques so you get the best results.
While this is my business, it is also my creative outlet. I often find myself sorting through images with a big smile on my face because of the beautiful laughter I'm seeing in the images. That's what it's all about. That's why I keep doing this.
Basically, I'm just an average person, living a normal life with too many things to do, and too many messes to clean up.
