My name is Jesslyn…
I know it sounds crazy, but I actually answer to either name hence my business name. You can just pick your favorite! ◡̈ I am so honored that you have made it to my little corner of the internet. I truly love this job of mine, and I’m so happy to share it with anyone who makes it here.
I have wanted to run a full time photography business for 10+ years. After a decade in education as a middle school teacher, I finally took the plunge in 2023, and it really is a dream come true. Thank you for being here.
NATURAL & WARM EDITS
I have struggled for years to find my identity through my editing. I’ve tried many different styles of editing, and I felt discouraged for the longest. I started off with super colorful and high contrast images. After I went on a hiatus after starting my teaching career, I came back with light and airy, and then I slowly transitioned a darker, moody look. I finally realized that my style doesn’t fit into either category but somewhere in the middle. The result often ends with your photos looking natural and true to color with more warmth. I love for your skin to look glowy, and I still try to keep color in your photo without it being overly saturated so that it creates a calm, peaceful, and aesthetic image.
GENUINE MOMENTS + EMOTION
My main goal is to capture you being your most joyful, loving, authentic self. I know all photographers say that sort of thing, but that’s for a good reason. We all love our clients being themselves and not posing for cheesy-looking photos. While I do pose you for many photos, I do my best to bring you out of your shell and make you feel natural, confident, and beautiful in front of the camera by creating movement and documenting true moments. I want to capture the joy, the fun, and the genuine moments—-the real smiles, the real laughter, and the real, raw emotion. With that said, everything is "posed" to an extent, but my goal is to grab those perfectly imperfect shots using prompts and movement.
