Get to know ME

Thriving on oat milk lattes and green smoothes, I spend my days as a homeschool mama, while creating photography and editing resources for busy parents, photography enthusiasts and pros alike.

I am blessed to photograph some of the most kind and beautiful families, and am usually planning my next DIY home project in the midst of working towards our goal of homesteading.

Never loose your images due to failed technology again. Digital downloads are wonderful for many things, but preserving your portraits for the long term just isn't one of them. Ensuring your memories are safe and tangible is so important to us.

"Jess takes the most incredible pictures and makes it look easy!" 

Beyond amazing. Jess has taken pictures of our family twice now and somehow manages to capture the best pictures of us all! Even with an ornery toddler and unpredictable newborn, Jess takes the most incredible pictures and makes it look easy!"

“She became more than just our photographer but also a dear friend.”

One thing we NEVER stressed about was our photographer. Besides taking phenomenal pictures she was so easy going, friendly and thoughtful. Often times checking in with me just to see how we were doing and how things were coming along. She became more than just our photographer but also a dear friend.
