I’ve been a professional, full-time photographer for over a decade and transitioned into the industry with a background as a full-time agency model. This experience on both sides of the lens has placed me on set for more than half my life. My work has been featured in places like KBS Magazine, Arabian Horseworld Magazine, VoyageLA, Maxim, Sophisticate’s Hairstyle Guide, Westcott Lighting, and the Ojai Valley News.

I'll be your personal guide
I know first-hand that it always isn’t easy getting in front of the camera, that’s why I’ve narrowed it down to a science and will coach you through everything. Just follow my lead and don’t worry if you’ve never had professional photos taken. Often times, clients mention they’ve put off having photos taken in the past out of fear of looking too stiff or not knowing how to pose. I’ll be leading your experience, cracking jokes, engaging with prompts, and capturing perfect moments for you to look back on for generations to come. Let’s have some FUN!
through every moment
What I do is simply more than pressing the shutter. It’s about YOU. Simply put, you’ll be able to enjoy a moment, a fraction of a second frozen in time that you can relive over and over. Each photo session is curated with the intention of delivering heirloom quality photographic art work for you to pass down for generations to come.
and every emotion.
In seventeen years, I’ve never had a duplicate photoshoot. Each session is individually tailored to the person and their moment. From day one, I want us to mesh well because it will resonate in the final product. Each session is more than having your photo taken, it’s an experience that you will be passing down to generations to come!

Jess has taken nearly every one of my favorite photos- from my wedding to our beloved horses. No one does a better job or has a better eye for art and beauty.

Jessica graced our wedding day with the most wonderful pictures! She was easy-breezy to work with, kind, and fun. ... It will be very hard to narrow them down to the best ones because they are all beautiful. She understands light and composition. We would recommend her to anybody wanting to capture a special, once in a lifetime event on film. (digital). She truly cares about the work and gets emotionally involved in the event. An empathetic artist is she. Thank you, Jessica!

Jess was referred to us to by a friend who could not stop raving about her work. So glad I listened. She has provided the photography for our prom pictures and graduation. They are spectacular. Cannot wait to see how our holiday family photos turn out. Would not use anyone else. Thanks Jess.
