Hi there! I'm Jessica! I'm a crunchy mama who thrives on purple smoothies, spicy kale salads, and Matcha lattes (with the occasional apple cider mimosa thrown in). I'm proud to be a Navy wife, a Carolina girl, and a former Occupational Therapist. My current Netflix binge is New Girl, and I cry at every single episode of This Is Us.
We just moved back to Chesapeake, VA but as a military family, we've learned that home is where the Navy sends us. In the last 12 years, we've lived in California, South Carolina, Virginia, Rhode Island and Tennessee, and we've left a little bit of our hearts behind in each place.
I am a natural light photographer because I am obsessed with dreamy, golden light that only the sun can provide! I love to shoot in grassy fields or knee deep in wildflowers, and my goal is always to create dreamy, light filled images that bring joy to your heart and capture a moment that would otherwise be forgotten.
I know from experience that photoshoots are notoriously stressful! My goal is to make documenting your family easy and hopefully even fun! I am here to help you through each step.
To take the stress out of figuring out what to wear, I provide an awesome style guide & access to an exclusive service that creates custom styled outfits for your entire family, complete with links to purchase. No more getting sucked into Pinterest and spending days running around trying to find pieces!
I strive to help kids (and parents!) feel comfortable in front of the camera, and that often means being super silly- from crazy voices, silly jokes, and games of peek-a-boo, I do what it takes to see genuine emotion! While we do take a few posed images, kids and parents are encouraged to play, interact, hug, tickle, and be silly. Those are the images that convey the most life and joy and end up being cherished for years to come!
After our session, I'll create custom art from your beautiful images! Whether you'd love a stunning coffee table album or a custom gallery wall, I'm so excited for you to see my carefully curated & exclusive products. I'll help you select images & take care of ordering, so at the end of our time together, you have something tangible, not just files on a hard drive.
My goal is for your photos to live on your walls & in your home where they can bring joy & remind you of what's really important!
No coffee for me! I start every morning with a Matcha Latte, and drink herbal tea through out the day! Extra special when macarons are involved!
I can't drive anywhere without music! Favorites are Hanson, Needtobreathe, Parachute & Daughtry
Sweetest babies ever. Adelyn is 8 & Everly is 1. They make my heart burst every day.
We met on my first day of freshman year at UNC-Chapel Hill. I thought he looked like Freddie Prinz Jr.
