Hey there! My name is Jess. I'm Southern born and raised (Georgia to be exact) and I left my hometown three days after graduating to set out for Alaska. I met my husband there, and after getting married we moved to Washington, which is where I call home these days. I have a beautiful little girl named Elsa, and yes, she was Elsa before Disney decided it was cool. I love Jesus and before anything else I serve Him and aim to glorify Him in my work.
Growing up I spent my time riding horses, training them, and that will always be a passion of mine. I have always loved art as well. I spent a lot of time painting when I was younger, before deciding I wasn't an artist. That decision didn't last long and I spent a few years dabbling in digital art before beginning to delve into photography more seriously. I had always loved taking photos, but I really began to see it as more than taking a pretty picture, and as a way to capture stories, elicit emotion, and express my own artistic vision. I was in Alaska when I began pursuing photography more seriously. I fell in love with it, and being able to capture amazing moments for other people. So often we don't realize the value of a moment, until it has passed. And that to me is why photographs are so important, they remind us of things we otherwise have forgotten or taken for granted.
