Meet Jess – Senior Photographer based out of Austin, Tx
Hello! Let me introduce myself.
Hey! I’m Jessica a personal brand, family, and senior photographer located in Austin, Texas! Hook ’em! 🤘 But that’s not all! I’m also a fun-loving, introverted, bookworm who is fascinated with visual storytelling.
But it wasn’t always this way.
I struggled a lot in High School with a negative body image which led to low self-esteem. When I graduated, senior photos were just one photo of you in your cap and gown that got inserted into the yearbook. Nothing like they are today. I begged my mother to take me to the nearest mall (an hour away) to get glamour photos because I wanted to feel beautiful.
I still struggle with my body, but it’s different now. These days, I fully appreciate everything this vessel does for me on a daily basis. It produces energy, ideas, art, and, most importantly, love. I wouldn’t say the road to where I am now has been easy by any means, but I would say it is worth it. I am forever indebted to this body that has given me, and my children, life.
This struggle with self-image directly inspires me to be a personal brand and senior photographer. I want to embolden other humans to see themselves more clearly and to recognize their inner awesome sauce. No need to worry about being awkward, shy, or not photogenic enough… because that is my specialty! I will direct you to look and feel your best and make all the cringy jokes to get a natural smile for mom.
