"My family loves her, and we appreciate her and how she captures my sons life with photography. Memories that will last forever."

I believe that beautiful moments are created everywhere. From welcoming a new life into the world, to the more simplistic joys in the everyday smiles and giggles of our children as they grow.  

Each of our stories is vastly different, but the one thing that remains the same is the love, and the desire to cling tight to the memories of here and now. 

I create because I believe in stories. The ones passed down generation to generation. The connections between us and the memories we share. How they fill spaces in our hearts and leave a legacy.
  
I am so excited to celebrate yours.

I'm Jess

Flipping through an old photo album, traveling back to that moment in time, reliving the emotions. Hearing the laughter of the day in your memory, as it brings a smile to your face. The excitement you feel as your family looks through with you, remembering little details otherwise forgotten. 

If this resonates with you, then I am so glad you're here. Because I get it. I get those visions and I can't wait to help you bring them to life. I would be honored to capture this season of your story. 

I was raised in the quaint town of St. Michaels, Maryland and after adventuring for a few years, my husband and I returned to raise our children.

If you're looking for images that are real, emotive, and sure to tug at your heart strings, you're in the right place.

I adore taking the time to get to know a little about each family that I work with, so that I can best tell the story of this season of their lives. Get ready to fill your walls with images that make you smile for years to come.

"She was the absolute best to work with" 

I can not speak more highly of Jess! She was the absolute best to work with and made my maternity session so enjoyable! I can not wait to use her for all of our future family photos!

"something that I will cherish forever." 

The stunning family portraits are something that I will cherish forever. They are truly amazing. She captured our love and personalities perfectly. Not to mention she was amazing with our little girl. We are so blessed to have had the opportunity for her to take our pictures.

are you ready to capture your story?

For years I was a self proclaimed non-creative. My life was joyfully full being a wife and mama, while working in the hospital as a Registered Nurse. I had the chance to begin staying home with my little ones, and who would have know that decision would lead me to picking up a DSLR and falling totally in love. 2014 was a year of pivoting, and I'm beyond grateful. It has been an incredible journey, and I've never looked back!

Photography allows me to escape, to relax, and most importantly, to bring joy to my clients. It warms my heart to know they will look back years later, and cherish the sentiment of the memories in the images I produce.
