a little about my life...

Hey! I'm Jessika and if I could be anywhere in the world it would be on top of a mountain, with the wind in my hair. I love discovering small, hipster coffee shops in every town. Most days you can find me cuddling my 4 dogs and watching Fraiser, How I Met Your Mother or Friends. I really enjoy yoga, but I'm still working on reaching my toes. I've lived in Washington, California and Missouri, can you guess which one is my favorite...here's a hint, Mt.Rainier! My husband, Tony, is in the Air Force and we are hoping to travel all over with our fur babies. In the epic battle of pizza vs. tacos...PIZZA wins hands down! (Though my husband would disagree) Enough about me, I want to know about YOU! Scroll down to find out my approach and say hi.

my approach

As a photographer I aim to document your authentic moments. I want you to look back on your photos and not only see an image, but have a memory attached to it. I'm not about posing you in "prom-like poses" and fake smiles. I want to photograph you and your kids running through a field, or your spouse snorting so loud you both start laughing even harder. I want those end of the session cuddles between you and your child. I want those booty grabs your spouse gives you when they think no one is looking. I want to capture the little things, the in between moments and the perfectly unperfect! Those moments are real, authentic and the ones you will remember. I want to be your storyteller. If this sounds like your jam then please introduce yourself!
