I've been photographing humans for the last twelve years. My favorite subject to photograph is joy. Think eye crinkled laughing, tears welling up vows, a mothers snuggle with her newborn child, a family dancing in a field of wild flowers, these are the slices in time I love to capture so my clients have their memories frozen to remember forever.  I am a former nurse and caring for people is in my DNA. I believe we need each other in this crazy world. I hope you feel so cared for if we get to work together.   See below for a few of my favorite things!

HI. I'm Jess

Let me be your personal guide to capturing precious moments

A few of my favorite things:

My husband Dave and I have been married for almost 20 years!  He is my favorite.  We still have fun together all these years later. We love to laugh and travel and hike and eat good food. 

No 1.

No. 2. 

No. 3. 

No. 4. 

No. 5. 

My three babies. Who are not really babies anymore but bring me so much joy day in and day out and have taught me so much about how to be present in each moment. 

My community. I live in Worthington Ohio which has somehow managed to provide our family a small town feel minutes from downtown Columbus Ohio. As an The Ohio State University alumni I love this city. 

Hiking with my family.  Our crew has done 14 National Parks and some really fun hikes together.  In my time between shoots in the summer we are usually exploring somewhere new together.  

Gardening. In the last few years I have really gotten into my little kitchen garden and even started to garden some flowers.  Having a hobby that is not my work has given me a renewed creative energy.
