The Story of a Photographer
Hi, I'm Jess. I am a lifestyle photographer based out of the Twin Cities in Afton, Minnesota. I began this incredible journey shortly after my Mom lost her battle to cancer years ago. It was then that I realized that tomorrow is never promised and how important it is to capture moments that take our breath away. Each day is an invitation to record a new sunrise and chapter in our lives as I focus my attention and not just my lens.
I absolutely adore my family, friends, children, music, the great outdoors, strong coffee, traveling to new places and I photograph it ALL!! My husband Jordan and I are raising two beautiful sons who keep us on our toes. It's never a dull moment with a teen and a toddler. Somedays I'm not sure who has more meltdowns yet our home is filled with love, laughter, Sesame Street, Snapchat and a camera near by to document these fleeting moments.
Photography for me, is a way to connect, feel, touch, and love that which I have been granted a passport to capture with my camera. It is the Art of observation. It is about finding something interesting in the ordinary. Great photography has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.
I hope to capture that moment on film that will last forever in the most creative and professional way I can. Come see your life, loved ones, and the beautiful world around us through my lens and passion as I take you down memory lane for years to come.
“This sweet girl has an incredible gift for capturing not only the perfect combination of lighting, backdrops and subject...but in a fresh and unique style that is hers alone.
