we love to tell
a love story.

I love belly laughs with girlfriends over pinot noir. I love early morning quiet stillness before my crazy beautiful life awakes. I love kitchen dancing. I love that people call me feisty. I think love is more powerful than any other thing. I love wearing dresses and red lipstick. I revel in the small and am awestruck in the big of this world.

I'm Jess. This is my love,Dave. 

about us

I'm a storyteller

about us

I am married to my high school sweetheart and our love has blessed us with three beautiful children. My life is crazy beautiful chaos with three babies in three years. I LOVE what I do, and view each interaction with my clients as an opportunity to be creative and to capture those special moments of life.
Before going fulltime in the business in 2012 I worked as a nurse on a labor and delviery unit in Columbus Ohio. That work has given me a pretty thick skin and it takes quite a bit to ruffle my feathers. Caring for people is in my soul and I hope that if we meet you will feel very cared for! ​

I couldn't have asked for a more fun and talented photographer. Jess is always cheerful, accommodating, and creative.  

Jess is an amazing photographer. She cares deeply about her clients, and works hard to make sure everything is just right. She (& her husband) went above and beyond to make my wedding day perfect. 


Your photographer is someone who is going to be around you for hours and hours on your wedding day - and she was someone I adored having around. 


Jess is so great! She's beyond patient, very kind and extremely talented! Her photos of our 2.5 year old son are magical!

When scheduling a portrait session with Seedling Photography you can expect a FUN time with your family! I am a mother of three and understand that getting your children to "smile pretty" can be painful. And really is not what I'm all about! I hope you have taken a look at my portfolio to see that I'm not about fake smiles or posed shots; but rather authentic joy and candid moments. When we get together for your portrait session I like to have a chat about what it is you are looking for and then I really enjoy letting kids be kids and coming along for the fun. My clients often end our sessions together by saying, "That was fun!" I then get a big smile because I've accomplished my goal of having family portraits captured for memories in an effortless way for my clients. I am not fussy about wardrobe or setting, but would be more than happy to answer any of my clients questions on things like what to wear and where to shoot, as well as give any ideas for the styling of the shoot. 
If scheduling an in studio portrait session you can plan to just come and sit back to relax. I will have all props necessary for the shoot unless specifically discussed.
