**** Please note: Sorry in advance if I’m a bit late in responding to your enquiry.  We are about to have another baby! (Er…or baby has just arrived and we have been too busy to update this!)   I promise I’ll get back to you ASAP….and please excuse any tired typos in my reply 😉

 

Hello!

I’m Jess.  I’m a photographer, an artist, a crafter, a dancer, a wife, a tea drinker, and more recently a mum too.  I like nice pictures. I love to make nice pictures. I like even more to make nice and fun pictures! Photographs with people, photographs without.

I received formal photographic and art training at Deakin University and Photography Studies College in Melbourne, and now beautiful Hobart, Tasmania is home again.

When I’m not photographing I can be found at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, helping visitors see the treasures and the quirks of the state collection. It’s a pretty inspiring side-gig, so don’t forget to take a look at my Art Projects from time to time to see what has got me thinking.

My aim is to give you a relaxed and fun filled experience, with beautiful photographs you can enjoy for years to come. I know I’ll have fun bringing the best out of you, I’m sure you will enjoy yourself too!  I look forward to meeting you and seeing how I can be involved with your special project.
