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 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, 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 five years old - 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 two years ago. So here I am, rocking the mom life, with a five year old and a two year old. Trying to organize the chaos..and at the same time embrace it—you know, that thing called 'balance', am I right?
I got a BFA from Texas State in Communication Design. I spent a decade in 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 finally came to and end and I decided to follow my heart. I've been shooting professionally for 3 years now and I couldn't be more in love. 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.
