Let's Tell Your Story.

 

I became a photographer because I want to remember everything, and I want to help you do the same. We all have important milestones that deserve to be remembered - whether you're a graduating senior, or needing headshots for your dream job. I want to help you not only remember where you are now and how far you've come, but also help you get to where you want to go, and look good doing it. 

I would love to  tell your story.

What to expect

MY STYLE

Fun. Stress-Free. Natural. Emotional. I am here to document this time in your life and help reveal who you are and what you love to do. I will, of course, help guide you in natural, beautiful poses, but I am also there to help you have fun doing it. You will be more comfortable in front of my lens, and your images will have the natural, more authentic feel of the real you.

 

FYI I am a natural light photographer, not a studio photographer, so I do shoot on location, usually in a place that means something to you, or somewhere I suggest based on the vibe you are looking for.

MY EXPERIENCE

With over 10 years of experience, I am familiar with many different types of situations and I am happy to send you full galleries of past sessions so you can see a full spectrum of my work. I always aim to be both kind and professional when addressing any of my Client's needs, and I’m committed to providing timely responses to any of your questions before and after our session.

"I had the pleasure of working with Jessi to fulfill some of the head shots I needed for some modeling castings. I met her through the recommendation of a friend, and I could not have been more impressed by her professionalism and level of talent during this shoot and throughout the editing process.

Jessi did not simply meet the minimum requirements I was hoping for, but took the time to be patient throughout the shoot in order to shape a creative space on our set that was both comfortable but editorial. I felt relaxed and was given constructive guidance throughout the shoot that helped create such an exquisite final product that I was so proud of sharing." - Abraham H.

faq

 Why should we hire you?

I take care of all of my clients like they are family. I have over 10 years of experience and absolutely love what I do. I have been told that I bring a sense of joy and comfort to my sessions, which helps me photograph and reveal the "true spirit" of the people and relationships I photograph. 

What types of portrait sessions have you done?

So. Many. Things. I've of course photographed graduating seniors, and birthday milestones (i.e. Thirty, Flirty, and Thriving), and I've also had the honor of photographing upcoming models, fashion bloggers, musicians, and even one of the actresses from Stranger Things.

Can I bring a dog or pet to our session?

Yes. Absolutely. One thousand times yes.

Do you edit all our photos?

Every image that you receive has been individually edited by me. I never send my images off to be bulk edited by some other company. I want to make sure every shot is consistent with the quality of work I expect from myself.

 

Where do you live & how far will you travel? 

I live on the Gulf Coast in Southern Alabama but also offer services in the Chattanooga area (moving there soon!) I’m always up for a new adventure so if you have a destination in mind just let me know and we’ll see what we can do! 

"Jessi is the best!!! I can’t recommend her enough!"
- Katie W.
