Jessica // Owner & Lead Photographer
I have always wished I was quieter (prayed for it even), but, that’s just NOT me. I’m loud. I’m sassy. I’m funny. Sometimes I’m a little too much. But I am honest, and I love hard, and I very much care for others. Once you’re in, you’re IN! Of all the things that I am, I revel in being a wife and mom the most. I am devoted to a man who will most assuredly wrinkle my face with laugh (and frustration) lines over the years. I pray we will still enjoy joking with each other well into our nineties and I can’t imagine a life lived well without him in it. I have given birth to two humans, and graciously received the gift of adoption to a third. Each one unplanned, unexpected, and yet all together perfectly timed. They are the beat of my heart, sometimes the bane of my existence and the most tangible representation of what everlasting and profound love is.
I have a moderately unhealthy love for sushi and likely a high level of mercury in my blood because of it. I would rather have a girls night in over a night out any day (probably because I can’t fit into my skinny jeans I still hold on to and elastic waistbands are frowned upon in many establishments). I firmly believe in giving back to others and that even the smallest celebration is reason enough to pop open a bottle of bubbly! Am I right?!?
I am enchanted with relationships and stories of love. They are always beautiful, sometimes complicated, almost never without a little bit of pain. I find the union of marriage to be the most mysterious and magical of them all. To love another person, who comes complete with their own history, baggage, faults, ideologies, passions and idiosyncrasies, in a way that is pure and totally selfless is, quite honestly, a miracle. I know what it is like to want to throw in the towel as intimately as I know the feeling of having your soul be known, deeply loved and accepted even it’s messiness. I know love isn’t always easy, but I do know it is worth it, and I would be honored to be let into yours—-laughing and crying alongside you and working my tail off so you can let go and free fall into it. I’ve got you.
LOVES // Jesus, sarcasm, wine, fitness and guac at no extra charge, rain, my label gun and a house that smells like Anthropology candles.
DISLIKES // butter that is too cold to spread, phones that have the ringers on, weather over 80 degrees.
