Get to know me
Hi I'm Jamie!
I am a lifestyle and natural light photographer located in Los Angeles, CA. I’m a military spouse and a mom to four crazy little kids with a love for Jesus and my family. I need boundless amounts of caffeine to get me through the day and live with the mantra of "Be your best, Do your best, and Be Kind to Others." When I am not behind my camera lens, you can find me at one of my kids' sports games, getting my toes sandy, and enjoying the sunshine!
Why I chose photography?
Capturing moments in time was one of the many reasons I fell in love with photography. It all started after my first baby was born. I became obsessed with documenting everything I could and I actively remember telling my husband I never wanted to forget how small his little hands were or how his smile would reach his eyes. Like a lot of parents, I started to see the world differently, through my child's eyes, and the world became so much more beautiful and colorful.
I value building relationships and truly connecting and learning about my client's stories. It goes beyond understanding what my clients want out of the session, it's about my clients trusting me that I WILL be getting their shots and having faith in me that yes, I will be that annoying person who will push my way through the crowd to make it happen for them. Being able to capture those authentic, genuine moments, is what truly fills my cup. I always walk into a session with the idea that I am going to capture moments that are important to my clients and pay attention to the little details that I know I would never want to forget. Some of my absolute favorite parts of a session are those in-between moments, which are full of unscripted emotions that truly paint a story. It's my absolute FAVORITE!
The rest they say is history because I started to capture weddings and elopements and I haven't looked back!
Are the travel expenses included in your packages or covered additionally?
There is a travel fee, but I always try and work with my clients to make it easy and affordable!
What if we want something more extreme for our elopement?
Heck yes! Are we talking adventure? I got my passport current and I am ready to go!
We want to include our dog into the elopement ceremony and photos, is that okay?
YEEEES! Please bring your furry family members!
How long does it take to recieve the photos after the wedding/elopement and how will those be delivered?
Anywhere from 3 to 8 weeks depending on busy season, but I make my wedding and elopement clients top priority!
I deliver all my galleries in a personal high-resolution online gallery, that's easy to share with family and friends!
We might need a wedding vendors. Can you recommend one?
YES! I have a list of vendors for you to look through and choose for yourself!
