I’m born and raised in Southern California,  so I have a slight obsession with farmer’s markets, yoga, fancy ass coffee, beach walks, sushi nights, house plants and all things kombucha.

Hello and welcome ! I’m so excited and honored to have you here! 

I’m a laid back , detail oriented photographer that strives to make photo sessions fun, simple and memorable. Authenticity is so important to me and I want to document what life currently looks like for you and your family. Overall, my goal is to make you feel comfortable, have a great time, and to LOVE your photos. From the moment you reach out, I’m available for all the questions and randomness leading up to your session. 

Not sure what to wear to a session? I’ve got you covered!  Need an opinion on location ideas? I’m here with a list!  Hair blowing in your face during the session? Coming in hot! *also – get that hair tie off your wrist . Don’t know where in your home we could photograph? Send me some pics! Need a new favorite sushi place or coffee spot? I’m on that too.

LETS CAPTURE SOME MEANINGFUL MOMENTS

I’d be incredibly honored to document a moment in your family’s history and this season of life. If you’re excited about my work, come say hi, tell me what you’re looking for and let’s capture it!

“We booked Jess for our maternity and newborn shoot and could not be happier with our decision! She was super responsive from the start and assisted with location idea, outfit vision etc. During the shoot, my husband and I felt so comfortable with her- she was so fun playing music and giving us direction with how to pose, move etc. Pics were delivered and she gave us SO many beautifully edited photos! It was overwhelming in the best way and we couldn’t be happier with them. We absolutely loved working with her and cannot wait for our in home newborn shoot! Definitely plan to book her in the future for family shoots as well!”

“Jess is absolutely incredible! She goes above and beyond to make our family feel special and capture every precious moment. She always takes the extra mile and you can see her shine through the camera while seeing her do what she loves. She has taken our family photos for years along with special life moments life pregnancy announcements, first birthday cake smashes, and family photos to capture our family growing through out the years. It is a true blessing if you get the chance to work with her.”

“Jess was so awesome to work with! Very easy to communicate with and incredibly flexible. It rained the morning of our shoot and she was totally open to rescheduling if we wanted but we decided we’d play it by ear and she was overwhelmingly positive about everything – she even arrived early! We did a family shoot at a beach and I wanted to be sure our dog was included and she was able to work with us to get him in a couple of shots. Jess was so great during our session – she even had the cutest dinosaur for her camera to grab our baby girl’s attention! She knows the location well and brought a blanket that complimented us. I’ve had photographers turn around photos in 8 weeks and she did hers faster than that which was so great because I can now enjoy my photos sooner. They all came out beautiful. Hoping to schedule another session with Jess soon for headshots since her portfolio is awesome.”
