My name is Jess. I’m a wife who’s crazy in love with my husband, Adam. And a momma to three sweet babies, Jack, Madeline and Henry. We relocated to Seattle from the Midwest five years ago and I’m hooked! While Michigan is where my story began and will always hold a very special place in my heart, Seattle is where we live, love, and call home. We live in a small town nestled in the mountains of the Snoqualmie Valley and these four pictured here with me are the spotlight of my personal work.
On a professional level, I’ve been shooting client work for nearly fifteen years and I now photograph exclusively maternity, fresh-48 birthplace sessions, and at-home lifestyle newborn photography. I believe this crazy, exhausting, fleeting season of your life is extraordinary and so important to document, which is why I’ve dedicated my client work to it.
I truly care about my clients, so I’ve found even when I first walk into your home or hospital room, it’s as if we’ve known each other for years. During your session time with me, you can expect lots of laughing, endless chatting, a relaxed setting, and most likely even hugs goodbye and giddy excitement because I can’t wait to get home and begin processing your session. I want my photos to radiate emotion. To be impactful and thoughtful. To be raw and genuine, and packed full of substance and meaning. These themes frame every single image I make for you.
Outside of being a wife and mother, making photography is the most rewarding thing I do everyday. I take pride in being a part of the Click & Company Community as a Click Pro and Lifetime Clicking Moms member and being listed in the 100 Photographers to Watch in 2018 list. Photography is part of who I am and I look forward to sharing it with you.
