Hi! I'm Jess.  Most people say I'm easy going and calm and that's probably why I have a knack for working with small children and busy wedding days.  I'm originally from the Hocking Hills area here in Ohio, but recently just moved back after living in Montana for 10 years and in South Carolina while my husband finished school.  He is a Chiropractor and we both have a passion for health and fitness.  We are Christians and make it a priority to invest into our marriage, family, and community.

My goal as a family photographer is to provide clients with a stress free experience so you have fun during the session and walk away with a family heirloom that is passed down through the generations.  When you come to me you get more than the annual Christmas Card that is tossed in the trash after the New Year.  You'll walk away with a genuine leather album, memory box, or print that paints an entire story of your children's personalities at this stage of life.  My hopes is that you'll pull these images out one day and share it with your grandkids and share stories about their parents when they were children.

When you book a session with me I want you to know that kids cry, boys play rough, and girls like to twirl like a princess.  I don't expect anything different.  I'm capturing this stage of life for you exactly how it is.  Nobody truly looks back on an image where everyone has forced smiles and stiff poses and tells stories about the day or their children's personalities.  My goal is to paint a story of your family with my camera.


I'm probably most known for my warm, glowy, and bright wedding images. I've won awards as our city's best wedding photographer in Montana and have enjoyed every minute of working with my couples, but recently I've decided to take on fewer weddings and more intimate elopements.  I still take on a very limited number of weddings each year and would love to chat with you to see if we'd be a good fit.  I especially love documenting elopements in the Hocking Hills where I originally grew up as a child.
