• 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.

All my photographer friends have such pretty Spring- time photos; I wanted some too!! The sun is shining and the flowers are just bursting here in California. BUT it’s so  hard to get myself in front of the camera… and photographing me …  it’s not a job I’d wish on many people. I get weird and awkward and stiff, and I always make this “sexy face”…  You guys, I don’t know. My honey buns, AKA Jim, although nervous about the task, was kind enough to help me gather my favorite things and spend this beautiful evening working his photo magic.  With Jim’s amazing skills, the make up genius, Lea Buehler  AND a little liquid courage, I too was able to reveal a little bit of my inner sparkle. (and note the accordion… a little bit of my inner dork)

The trees are budding and things are blooming and if you’re a portrait photographer, like us, you’re feeling you MUST get someone in front of your camera before those amazing blooms disappear. My good friend and fellow photographer from Sweet Jean Photography was due for an updated profile photo.  Don’t you think the pink and white blossoms were the perfect compliment to her amazing hair and beautiful smile??

I’m very excited to have sent off Sam and Kyle’s amazing, gigantic album to the printers. Renaissance Albums will create 40 pages of beauty, laughter, LOVE with  the cutest backdrop for a wedding one could imagine. These two were married right in the middle of  High Hand Nursery and had their pretty little reception in the old packing shed. Glitter, flowers and lighting complemented the corrugated metal and old barn wood perfectly. Each collection of images represent an album spread that will make up their album. I’m pleased to know they’ll have the memories of this gorgeous day bundled up in a one of kind keepsake.

I’m so excited I finally get to share! Sometimes waiting for the surprise to be revealed is REALLY HARD!  Ms. B had a some great ideas for her session. We photographed her  in her home which included a sunny pool and her future husband’s prized possession, a really cool hot rod.   Leslie Ryan Beauty  came too  and worked her make up magic. Such a fun afternoon with gorgeous results! Are you thinking you’d like to have a session in your home (or in our studio)? Book your Sacramento Boudoir Photography Session by sending me a message for more information.

Friends, family, love, laughter. What more could one want on their wedding day? Kaley and Weston had everything. In spite of the 100 degree temps (like Sacramento is famous for) there were only smiles and happy tears for these two. Surrounded by supportive friends and a loving family, they made a pledge to one another, sealed it with a kiss and then danced the night away. Congratulations you two! Much love and happiness. Are you searching for Sacramento Wedding Photography – Contact me for more information!
