Hello, I'm Jessica!
I’m a West Michigan Pet Photographer, but I’m also a Nature Nut, Bird Nerd, Painter, Plant Lady, and Food Lover!
It's completely normal to find me wandering around outside looking for my next “life bird”! Or scoping the internet daydreaming of new, unique plants to add to my collection. If I’m having a relaxing weekend, I love to order Brick Road Pizza in Grand Rapids and get the biggest buffalo tofu pizza they have to offer! And no, I don’t share. What’s the saying? Any size is a personal size if you try hard enough.
And of course, I spend as much time as possible with my own dog, Dwayne! A big goof who is sweet as pie and a total mommy’s boy. Originally from Phoenix AZ he was shipped up to our local Humane Society of West Michigan. Now he’s my PIC and I can’t imagine life without him!
I’ve been doing photography in some form for the last 15+ years. My favorite types have always been nature and pets! So, I decided that’s what I would specialize in. Being able to go for walks while enjoying the great outdoors and spending time with some of the most beautiful dogs I’ve ever seen is really an amazing thing! It’s wonderful to see owners getting quality time with their furry best friend and being able to capture it all. I also get to take photos of unique, colorful exotic animals, horses, cats, you name it! The job doesn’t stop after the camera clicks though. I take those images and carefully edit them so they become gorgeous works of art! Creating perfect compositions, bringing out features and vivid colors, showing off their personality. Animals so stunning I even have some of my favorites on my own walls at home!
By tying art and love together we can create captivating pieces for your home so you can always see the beauty and vibrancy of your pet!
