• I’m Jess!

    LIFE. PASSION. ADVENTURE. JOY. Standing beneath streams of golden light, he’s telling you a secret, your arms are wrapped around his neck and that secret results in a burst of wide open LAUGHTER. This is my goal as a photographer, to constantly seek moments of beauty in light, color and emotion......to capture your colorful life.

    As a result of my love for people and art, I graduated from Sonoma State in 1993 with a BA in Psychology and a minor in ART. Living with my husband in Northern California, we’re recent empty nesters, resulting in two over-indulged, naughty hound dogs who enjoy running our show.

    Tell me about yourself... Are you a hard-working mama, putting everyone before yourself and needing a reminder of who you are; a little glimpse back into that inner SPARKLE? Perhaps you have a vision your family cuddled up on a blanket in a grassy, sun dappled field, knowing these moments together are so, so fleeting, wanting to remember things that are SIMPLE and pure. Are you starting your new life with THE ONE that gets your heart beating fast, who will one day know you to your core and be your biggest fan anyway? Write me a little note, share your vision and together we’ll help you REMEMBER. DISCOVER. CAPTURE.

This beautiful Senior just graduated from Sac State with an degree in English.  I loved that she wanted to incorporate her love of books into her session. Because Ashlee is so bubbly and has such an incredible smile, she was a lot fun to photograph. We went to one of my favorite shooting places; a green belt/trail with a creek access and lots of wild flowers . Congratulations Ashlee and a job well done! Cheers to your bright future!!

You may remember my beautiful cousin’s family from last year when I photographed them with a vintage truck. Cathie’s dad was an avid collector and lover of all things old. He passed on this amazing Studebaker and organ and Cathie, also with a heart for the sentimental wanted to incorporate them into her family session. We sure had fun driving this old car down the road and found the perfect lane off the beaten path. Will and Rob are always up for her shenanigans and such good sports. I also had to include my cute brother with his beautiful new puppy, ‘Bindi’.

When the sun rises over the horizon,

the butterfly emerges to dance in its brilliant light.
It flickers its colorful wings with euphoria,
To celebrate all the beauty found
in the majestic garden of life.
