Hello, I’m Jessie!
I am a wife + mama and self-taught photographer. Im passionate about empowering fellow moms to to see how incredible their everyday is and to take beautiful pictures of their kids (regardless of their camera equipment – I’m lookin’ at you, iPhone moms). I teach moms how to apply the same techniques I use as a professional photographer to their own personal photography.

Are you obsessed with taking pictures of your kids? Me too!! I want to show you that taking beautiful, quality images is possible even if you don’t have an expensive camera. You may be using a smartphone or entry level DSLR, but you don’t have to settle for low quality pictures.
I want to show you how to be intentional in documenting and telling your family’s story. Our days may be filled with diapers and caffeine, but mama, these ARE the days. This time is so precious.
If you love taking pictures of your kids but you don’t have this whole photography thing totally figured out – I’ve got you and I’m so happy you’re here.
Over the past few years I’ve taught myself how to use my camera + smartphone to take pictures of our everyday.
On April 30th, 2017, I took my first picture of my newborn rainbow baby.
My eyes filled with tears and I had this overwhelming feeling that every picture I had ever taken was in preparation for this – for him. He is what this creative part of my heart was made for. You can read more of my ‘why’ here: How losing our baby changed my life, my motherhood, and my lens.
I want this for you. My heart is for you to have beautiful images of your babies to look back on so you can step into those moments over and over again & someday show your kids the story of their childhood.
More about me
Most importantly I’m a follower of Jesus. Being married is the most fun thing of my life and this mama gig is better than I could have ever imagined. I want like 300 babies ?
If it weren’t for Target I’d never leave my house, I’m definitely an introvert. I’m a minimalist by necessity – because I’m the messiest person you’ll ever meet. I aim to simplify my life so that I have more time for what’s truly important. Im a runner – I ran in college and now I love doing street races and stroller runs with my son. I have the taste buds of a six year old and I would eat chicken nuggets for every meal if it wasn’t a bad example to my kid.
I love to be creative but I struggle with confidence. I use the ? emoji way too much and I’m sorry. If you ever can’t find me, I’m either playing blocks on the floor with my son or I’m outside soaking up the sunshine. My husband and I built our home ourselves in 2016 on our property in the mountains. We call our house the ‘Cottage.’
I mean it when I say I want to know you and I hope you’ll introduce yourself here (firstname.lastname@example.org) or over on Instagram. If you’re here for the photography tips, which I hope you are, I created a free course just for you: Momtog in Five – Five days to better mom photography even if you don’t have a fancy camera.
