About  Jessica 

My craft is photography, my passion is people. I absolutely love my clients and learning more about their story. I want to get to know you, learn more about your style, what makes you unique, and then capture that essence on camera.

I am located in the heart of South Texas in the little town of Pleasanton. I have been capturing milestone moments since I first picked up my little kit camera in 2009 for a college course. Who knew years later, that little spark would grow into my strong passion for photography and story telling.  I continue to take that same initial spark from my once upon a hobby and incorporate it into a one of a kind experience for my clients.  We are building memories after all, shouldn't it be a little fun? Yes, and I think so too! Want to learn more? Click below and see!  

hi there! I'm jessica, the fun lovin' texan behind the camera. i cannot wait to meet you and tell your story.

MORe >

1) I am a wife to my high school sweetheart and mother to the best little boy in the world, absolutely love being a mom.  
2) I have been a bridesmaid 12 times.    (No, I don't still have all the dresses)
3) I absolutely love cruises! I have been on 3 - they're A-M-A-Z-I-N-G    (No, I never had to eat spam & eggs while on one).  
4) I can speak English, and can half way understand Spanish.  (Mainly to tell others I can't speak Spanish). 
5.) My love language is Amazon Prime and Mexican food (My Disney Princess name would probably be "Taco Belle" ) 
6.)  I grew up on a cattle ranch and love wide-open spaces where there's more than enough room to grow & a porch to enjoy it.
7.) From fact #6.  knowing the farm & ranch life, I would say most of my hard work ethics come from it. I value my clients and always try to find room for improvement. Our experience is one of a kind and heartfelt.

Behind the Scenes



take a look into how jessica works with newlywed couple, willie & briana lorenz, at a styled featured session. hiring a professional doesn't mean that you have to lose out on having fun!

"We are so much more than a "1, 2, 3.. cheese" snap. We capture moments that bring our photographs to life. Our goal is for clients to walk down the halls of their homes and stop when they see their photograph, even years down the road. It should make them smile, chuckle, or tear up not because of the picture but of the memories it tells. That's what we are all about."
