October 13th, 2017 changed my life forever - it was the day I became a mom. And it was also the day I realized how quickly life speeds by... I dusted off my Canon I had packed away and I haven't looked back! My husband and I moved across the country away from both of our our families (and the cold of Ohio winters!) to Phoenix, Arizona the summer of 2016. Being so far from our families I didn't want anyone to miss a single moment of his life! Now we have what seems like a million photos of our little boy! Can you take too many pictures of a cute baby?? Nah! The grandmas don't think so! :) My day job is teaching elementary art in Scottsdale which I LOVE! I've been teaching art for 10 years and I have a Master's Degree in Art Education. Besides our little boy we have two dogs - Cubbie and Wrigley and a sassy, skittle-loving horse named Trudy. I'm a pizza connoisseur, I YOLO through life, and I look forward to capturing your special moments!

Jessie picked a fantastic location with vibrant colors and scenery and went to work. I came away with the best pictures of my son. She is patient, focused and was able to create a relaxed environment for some really great shots. I'll be back!

Kind Words...

We had Jessie take photos of our newborn. She did a phenomenal job, the pictures turned out great, she came to our home, worked well with our baby and was so friendly! We highly recommend her!
