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.
Two of the sweetest little souls call me Mama. Adelyn, 9, is my angel girl who is filled with sparkles + still believes in unicorns. Everly is 2, and is as fierce as she is hilarious + cuddly. They both keep my arms + heart full!
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 love glowy, light filled images, whether we are at the beach, knee deep in wildflowers, or in my sweet little white studio. My goal is to capture giggles, snuggles, tickles, and any other moment that brings joy and reminds you that you are so blessed!
Y'all- photoshoots can be so stressful, from planning outfits to making everyone stand still + smile, it's enough to make
Styling makes such a huge impact on your images + to make it easier, I provide an awesome style guide, use of my Client Closet, and 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 + spending days running around trying to find pieces!
I always want to help kids (and parents!) feel comfortable in front of the camera, and that often means being super silly- we'll play games, dance, and have tickle fights. You should know that I'm not above fart noises to get a good smile! 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 joy + 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.
