Chris Morrisy Acting Headshot

Recently, I had the opportunity to do something a little different in my studio. I photographed my brother for his acting headshots, against a simple, yet powerful black backdrop. Choosing black was no accident—it’s timeless and focuses all attention on the person in front of the lens, capturing depth, emotion, and character. It was a […]

Jane Austen Loving, Coffee Drinker, with a Strong Desire to Create

I'm Jessica, and if you've made it this far, wow – I'm truly honored. Look, I know picking a photographer can feel like searching for a needle in a haystack, but here's the thing: it's more about finding someone whose vibe matches yours. Someone who gets you. And that's exactly what I aim to be.
Think of me not just as a photographer, but as a friend with a camera. A friend who's super excited to celebrate all your big (and small!) moments, from the I-dos to the just-because days. We'll laugh, maybe share a tear or two, and capture some beautiful memories along the way.

My camera? It's just a tool to bring out what's already there – your unique story, your spark. And don’t worry about the poses; I’m all about keeping it real and relaxed. Whether we’re chasing the sunset or catching that perfect family laugh, it’s all about having a good time.

If this sounds like what you are looking for, I’d be thrilled to hear from you! Send me a note, and let’s make some magic happen.
