I'm Jess.  I'm a homeschooling mama to 3 and a portrait photographer in Southern Minnesota. I love people and any opportunity to be social and creative. Connecting with people is one reason why I love what I do.  I delight in creating a captured memory for you to treasure.
I'm always up for photographing at a favorite park, a family farm, or wherever you feel most like yourself!  So meet me at the coffee shop, or on my front porch while the kids play, and let's get to know each other.  And then let's go have some fun with my camera.

so glad
you stopped by.

welcome

Jessica received her B.A. in Graphic Design at the University of Northwestern, Saint Paul in 2007, where she also studied photography.  She went on to work at a portrait studio in Maple Grove until she moved to Southern Minnesota in 2009. She then began photographing for Womeninc Magazine until 2013. Jessica has been photographing area families for over 10 years. She continues to take photography classes and tutorials, striving to always improve her art and better serve you.

Jessica recently became a certified volunteer with the
Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep foundation as an affiliated photographer.

Oh my LANTA...Hands down Jessica is the best. She’s an incredible artist. Her work is beautiful, and she is such a kind, generous, friendly, beautiful soul. She will have my family’s business from here on out.

Jessica was super awesome throughout our entire session! Even in the pre-planning and post-session photo choosing she was awesome and delivered us BEAUTIFUL pictures! 

-jean

The quality of the pictures are stunning. I am so happy with Jessica's service I know I would call her for any photo shoot I would need in the future.

-Molly

Jessica was everything we could have asked for and more to help capture our little family unit! ...She gave us so many options to choose from and I could not be more thankful for her expertise, fun, gentle and laid back personality, and go-get -em attitude to get the perfect shot!

-Julie

Jessica did an amazing job with my senior pictures. She was very comfortable to work with, listened really well to my hopes for the shoot, and turned out a beautiful product for us!
