BEHIND THE LENS

AN ARTIST WHO IS PERPETUALLY NOSTALGIC, beLIEVES beauty LIES within details and human connection is not only life giving, but is what gives life meaning.

Golden Hour fanatic, travel and food enthusiast, lover of motherhood and deeply appreciative of life's simple pleasures. 

Jessica finds tremendous beauty in the ordinary, believe at least one moment in every day is noteworthy and deserves to be remembered through a photograph. The longer she does this, the more aware she is of what a beautiful opportunity exists to capture life as it unfolds. Because life doesn't last forever, but the images do.

The immense passion for story-telling and memory making has been there practically from the start, but the medium for those two things collided during a two year stint in Seoul, South Korea. With travel as her muse, a passion for photography was ignited. 

After spending over a decade in the marketing/advertising space working for software startups, she desired something more personally rewarding, enduring and worthwhile. Taking her expertise and channeling it toward making heartfelt imagery to be enjoyed forever, she is proud to collaborate with her clients and the best creative minds in the industry. 

MEET JESSICA

THE SENTIMENTAL AND DRIVEN BUSINESS PROFESSIONAL-TURNED-ARTIST WHO'S PROUD TO GIVE HER ALL TO CLIENTS AND COLLEAGUES.

Give me something new to try with good company and I'm sure to enjoy myself! If I must claim my forever favorite? It's the Trust Me Nozawa from Sugarfish. In addition, the longer I do this, the more I fall in love with the art of entertaining, table design and curating the perfect menu! 

food is where the heart is

Probably like you, my family is my whole world and the absolute best part of living. So grateful for my beautiful family! Motherhood is wonderful, complex, an incredible act of service and it's better than I could ever imagine.

Going for walks late at night, journaling and getting lost in a new city while doing a photowalk. And my personal favorite: laughing until I cry and my abs hurt.

Truly, anyone who knows me well, knows I won't ever deny dessert before dinner and I watch Friends more than I'm willing to admit.

Travel is my greatest source of inspiration, personal growth and has shaped me endlessly. I have a particular affinity for Croatia (the Adriatic sea has my heart!) for the views and relaxation it provides; Vienna, Austria for the incredible art and culture; and Seoul, South Korea for it being a place I once called home for two years. It's hard for me to claim a favorite!

to travel is to live

The ability to freeze a moment in time that has the ability to live beyond my generation. There's always at least one moment of each family session or wedding that I see a moment through my viewfinder and whisper to myself "THAT'S the one".  I can easily recall at least 2-5 favorite images from every single session or wedding I shoot.
