• What is your style of photography?

My style is a mix of journalistic and fine art photography. I try to creatively capture the raw emotion and natural interactions of my subjects. I tend to shoot with a bit of an editorial flair.

  • Where are you based? and do you travel?

I’m based out of Los Angeles county. I travel back and forth between southern CA and the PNW.

  • What gear do you use?

Camera bodies: Nikon D810, Nikon D750,

Lenses: Sigma 50mm 1.4, Sigma 35mm 1.4

  • Help! I'm not good at posing! What do I do with my hands?

Not to worry! This is pretty common for people, actually. I will be helping guide you through different poses and actions throughout your session. The best thing you can do is show up to your session as relaxed as you can be and be open to my direction. Most people are actually pleasantly surprised by how fun and relaxed my sessions are! 

  • What should I wear?

Wear clothing you feel confident and comfortable in. As far as colors go, it mostly depends on what we are shooting.  Earth tones are my favorite because they photograph so well. They help to give images a beautiful timeless feel. I can definitely help you decide on some clothing options if you need!

  • When and how do you deliver photos?

Depending on which package you are booking for, I generally deliver client galleries 4 weeks after their session. Every session includes a beautiful online gallery where clients can download their images.

  • May I post my photos online?

Yes!  I'm happy when clients love sharing their images. Just please remember to give me credit as the photographer and tag me on social media.It can be very helpful to me in connecting with new clients!

  • Do you shoot weddings?

Yes, I allow time to shoot a handful of small/intimate weddings and elopements a year. 

 "Jamie does an exceptional job in capturing a person's beauty and personality. From the first photo captured, to the last one, she was completely engaged which made it easy to connect and enjoy the shoot. Jamie doesn't take pictures, rather, she captures moments that reflects each individual to their fullest. Thanks Jamie!"

“I have worked with Jamie on three photo shoots now, and I cannot speak highly enough of my experience. In my career, I’ve worked with many photographers, but none have paralleled Jamie’s ability to truly capture the essence of who and what I am on camera; her photos are genuinely remarkable. I believe it’s rare to find talent like hers.

I want to also relate how wonderful it is to simply work with her. She had a way of making me feel incredibly comfortable. She lead me in her vision as well as took in mine. I felt like I was truly collaborating with her which made all the difference in the world. She has always been incredibly prompt and getting me my shoots in a timely fashion and I’ve felt taken care of by her from start to finish.

If you’re looking for someone to take photos of you and blow your mind, Jamie is the person you want behind the lens”

"Our family portraits turned out so well--just stunning! Jamie is very warm and put us totally at ease right away. She's super talented and professional...book her! You'll be happy you did"

"I found Jamie through a mutual friend and reached out to her for some professional photos to mark the beginning of my career in real estate. I'm not very comfortable in front of a camera but Jamie's warmth and authenticity instantly put me at ease. I felt like I was meeting an old friend for coffee, even though we'd just met. She chose the perfect location ahead of our shoot. Her approach was relaxed yet direct. She told me just what to do and made me laugh often, capturing a natural smile. Jamie is extremely professional in her communication and had the photos back to me within a few short weeks. I have recommended her to others and will continue to do so. She is my go-to photographer!"

I wasn’t sure that branding photos were something that my little business needed, I didn’t think my business was worthy of the investment. I thought more pronounced businesses with a bigger cliental and wholesale orders would need branding photos. After seeing some of the artist branding photography that Jamie had done and discussing what the session would be like, I decided to book a session for myself. It has been one of the best business decisions, that I could have made. I use these photos all the time for branding on my website, branding on my social media, applications to markets, making the business more relatable, and showing behind the scenes of my process. I definitely believe that having these photos on my website and applications have opened up more doors for me and was so worth the investment. So much so that, I booked her again so that I could get photos of me wearing some of my new products. Her photography has been vital to make my shop and applications shine and Jamie made me feel very much myself in front of the camera, which is not normally the case for me, so the photos look and feel genuine. Every maker needs Jamie in their business plan!

“As a fellow photographer, I generally spend my time capturing instead of being photographed myself. I was nervous to have the camera turned on me, as I don’t consider myself photogenic. But from the moment we started our session, I felt cared for by, comfortable with, and connected to Jamie. She’s not only a great talent with a camera (you can see the quality of the work for yourself)... but what you can’t see in these galleries is the way she will make you feel so comfortable, so beautiful, and so at ease. She has an eye for the little things that make your shoot location special, and she artfully captures the situation in a way that will remind you later of just how you felt and how special the day was. I recommend Jamie highly to anyone who needs photographs of what is important to them. You’ll be in the hands of someone who cares immensely about your images and experience, and you’ll have a lifelong heirloom in your images.“
