All your life...you were only waiting for this moment to arise.   -the Beatles

Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the web.  I never know what to say in this space and talking about myself always feels strange, 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, I'm a lover. Perhaps if my life were to be summed up by one phrase, it would be "All you need is Love".  Love is Love. Love conquers all. I am married to the best guy - he is, hands down, my number one fan - and for that, I am very thankful. We have a son, Jude, who is four - he was the inspiration and catalyst behind my photography journey. That's right, becoming a mom changed my life in so many ways - (shocker). We welcomed our baby girl, Malin, into the world a little over a year ago. So here I am, rocking the mom life, with a four year old and a one year old. Trying to organize the chaos..and at the same time embrace it. It's all about balance, am I right? 

I got a BFA from Texas State in Communication Design. I spent the better part of a decade doing graphic design; but, it never spoke to my soul. See, photography was always there. I just got so good at ignoring it. Oh the excuses—there are too many photogs, I can’t afford a camera, I am a graphic designer. Am I good enough? Will I be good enough?
It laid dormant for years and years. But that time is up...here I am.

I'm Jessica.

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.
