Hi y’all! I’m Jessi & I am a Mompreneur: a female business owner who is actively balancing the role of mom and the role of entrepreneur. I started Picture Perfect Photography by Jessi in 2011. I am a mom of four sassy, smart, gorgeous children: Skylar Blake, Calleigh Alexa, Daisy May & Violet Dawn. (And soon to be step mom of three other children who are all equally amazing!) They are my world, they are my muses. Then there is my amazing fiancé, Jason, who always tolerates me saying “hang on, let me get a picture of that!” Haha! He is my rock and my support through all the craziness of being a full time mom, and a full time photographer. I would not be where I am today without his love and support!
Most days I am chasing around a toddler and a crawler with my Canon around my neck capturing all those crazy, hectic moments that will pass all too quickly. I am an entrepreneur and DIY’er (that’s a word right Haha!) I studied Art & Photography and I am old school in the sense that I learned photography in the dark room, not to be confused with Lightroom Haha! I love to smile, and I love to laugh!
During a session I want my clients to laugh, to have fun, be relaxed, all while I capture lasting and unique memories for them. No matter what the session style, I want to show them how beautiful each of their lives really are.
What I photograph: The better question would be what don’t I photograph? Even though my passion is babies, I also love to photograph toddlers, families, pets, events, weddings, destination weddings, boudoir and even headshots (personal & corporate). I specialize in natural light, on location photography, but I just opened up a studio in the heart of Grandin Village Roanoke, Va for newborns and headshots.
My personal vibe: Bubbly, Light & Thrifty
My photography style has been described in 4 words as: Clean, Bright, Airy, & Fresh
Confession: I have a MAJOR addiction to funky shoes and eclectic jewelry! And I believe that every woman should own a strand of real pearls ❤
What’s in my Pretty Pro Bag? First off, it’s a gorgeous teal leather bag (did I mention how gorgeous it is?!) Canon 6D Mark ii, Canon 7D, 24-70mm lens (THE everything looks beautiful lens), 70-200mm (THE wedding lens) and a trio of Sigma Art Lenses (Ohhhhh the baby lens)
