TELLING YOUR STORY.
Love is no easy feat. Whether in marriage, parenthood, or within yourself, it requires you to lean in when you want to run away. It forces you to pay attention when you’re tired and want to check out. It pushes you to be strong when you just want to break down. I’ve spent so many important moments in my life behind the lens, and I know how it feels to be missing from the images that tell such a significant part of your story.
My hope as a mama, photographer, and friend, is to document your life FOR you. I want to grow with you through all of life’s goodness, so that you can continue to be a part of your story, and leave the documenting to me.
You are so loved, and no matter what season of life you’re in, know that you’re doing a great job. I can’t wait to meet you!
Thank you for being here.
The best photographs are born from connection. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to me that you’re able to make an informed decision of whether or not I’m the best fit for your family, before our time together begins. xx
When I am not pouring my heart into my work, you can find me anywhere outdoors, hanging out in a coffee shop, or nuzzled on the couch snuggling with my son. My soul home is on the water, near the pacific coast. I enjoy exploring the unknown, indulging in cheesecake, cuddling kittens, and above all family time. My happy place includes waking up early, wrapped in a cozy blanket with a fresh cup of coffee to watch the sunrise (preferably by a lake or in the mountains). I have a soft spot for outdoor, intimate concerts, morning hikes, and kayaking. I am an ally to the LGBTQ+ community, and welcome all people to my tribe with open arms.
Photography is intricately woven into who I am. It is my passion, my purpose, and it fuels my soul with all of the best things. I adore the kinship of family, the magic of new life and the intimate bond between adventurous couples in love.
I would be honored to document this season of your life. Don’t hold back, you only get this moment once. You be you, I’ll be me. Let’s create something real.
WHY JMEG PHOTOGRAPHY?
Because you deserve the best care and quality. By investing in quality photographs to commemorate this time in your life, you’re investing in the opportunity to stop time, and re-live these moments forever. Photographs are an opportunity to return to moments otherwise gone. Ten, twenty, or thirty years from now, you’re not going to remember that steak that you had downtown, or the new chair you bought for your livingroom (I mean, you might if it’s the bomb), but my point is, those things are so small compared to this life you’re living. I can guarantee you with every ounce of my being, that if you invest in documenting your life well, and often, that you’ll look back through your albums and on the images on your walls and you’ll find yourself laughing, crying, and reflecting on what once was with immense joy and gratitude. I care so much about you and your family, and you deserve nothing less than an exceptional experience.
I remember gazing down at my son three days after I brought him home from the hospital. I used to hold him on my chest, tear up, and hope that if I held him close enough that he’d stay small forever. I never knew that my heart was capable of a love so strong until that moment.
Throughout my first year with him I learned so much. I had doors open in my heart that I didn’t even know existed. I said things, and did things that I didn’t even know I knew or felt. It wasn’t until he came into my life that I realized just how quickly life goes by, and how important it is to document the life you share with the ones you love
