I’M JESSICA. Photographer | Artist | Mother | Wife

Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the web. I never really know what to say in this space because talking about myself always feels a little odd, but I do think it’s important for you to know who I am. So here it goes – That’s right, my name is Jessica – you can call me Jess. First and foremost, authenticity is my jam and I believe all you need is love. To elaborate a little – life is just too damn short to fake anything..so just be you..perfectly imperfect you. I got a BFA from Texas State University in Communication Design. I spent a decade in graphic design, but it never spoke to my soul—you see, photography was always there – I just got so good at ignoring it. Oh the excuses…there are too many photographers, I can’t afford a nice camera, I am a graphic designer…am I good enough? will I be good enough?

The passion laid dormant for years and years. That time finally came to an end and I decided to follow my heart. I’ve been shooting professionally for 5 years now and I couldn’t be more in love. I am married to my best friend – he is, hands down, my number one fan – and for that, I am very thankful. We have a son who is almost 7 years old – he was the inspiration and catalyst behind my photography journey—that’s right, becoming a mom significantly changed my life – (shocker). We welcomed our baby girl into the world 4 years ago. So here I am, juggling life with 2 young children, grieving the loss of my mother, and my growing business; meanwhile, trying my hardest to embrace the chaos and to cherish these crazy times. Let’s make some magic together!

Fun facts:

  • I have the best dog in the whole land – he is a white schnauzer and his name is Schnaughty.
  • Food is my favorite.
  • I love whales.
  • I would love to travel more and see more live concerts.
  • I am not a fan of Beyoncé.
  • Dark chocolate makes me sad and poor customer service makes me mad.
