About

Welcome! My name is Jess and I am an artist currently living in Austin, Texas. I shoot with a Nikon D700 and a few different lens. I have been photographing travel and nature photography for just over six years now, and I am still as excited about taking my camera to shoot today as I was when I first picked it up.

Travel photography comes naturally to me. I have had a passion for recording my experiences traveling since I was about ten years old. Back then it was just me and my long, turquoise point and shoot, used on our annual family camping trip. But (and this is one of my fondest memories of my father, who recently passed from Cancer) my Dad would buy me AS MANY rolls of film as I wanted AND develop them ALL afterward.

Nature photography keeps me grounded. I do revel in discovering some beautiful thing that the Universe has gifted the world with, be it bumblebee or bloom. And of course, I want to record it too. I'd just about stopped wondering, and asking, "WHY" I want to do all this recording when I decided to open this shop. And then it hit me: I want to share it.

I see things that delight me. That delight fills a little bit of my soul with sunshine. And in today's world, in anyone's life, there are enough negative things going on that I'm so thankful for those moments of delight. And I want to share them. I'm ecstatic to imagine one of my images giving you a moment's delight as you look at it.
