DA: Tell us a little bit about yourself!

JL: I am in love with savoring this life's most beautiful blessing: relationships. To me the most precious moments are the ones that happen naturally, organically. When you reflect back on your favorite memories, they are about emotions experienced with loved ones. Those are the moments that captivate me.

DA: What has been your most memorable image and why?

JL: That is an impossible question for me to answer. There are so many memories attached to my images that I could never choose just one.

DA: If you could tell photographers that are just starting out one thing you wish you had known before starting a business, what would it be and why?

JL: Avoid going with the flow. Don't make decisions based on what others around you are doing. That means in how you price yourself, how you spend your money, the types of things you shoot, even how you shoot them. Figure out who you are as a photographer and business person and then weigh all of your decisions against that. It will save you countless hours, dollars and mistakes!

DA: Where do you find inspiration?

JL: Mostly nature. Light, Water, Wind, Motion. Combine those with genuine organic emotion and I could get lost forever.

DA: If you had to move to a state or country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why?

JL: Italy, the coast. The food, the sea, the culture. It's truly magical and I have never experienced anything like it.

DA: What are you most grateful for? JL: Grace

As a portrait photographer that specializes in Motherhood & Young Family, much of my work involves maternity imagery. I think this season of life is amazing and SO important to capture on film but lots of new moms couldn’t feel less into the idea!  I get so many moms pregnant with their second child telling me they wish they had just gone ahead and made maternities during their first pregnancy. They usually say they didn’t feel beautiful at the time, were so uncomfortable or just didn’t see a good reason to do it at the time but now have a lot of regret over missing out on those memories.

We’re having a huge sale on all of our almost perfect Big Picture Planners! Huzzah!

But wait. What does “almost perfect” mean? Well, these are the planners that have teeny tiny aesthetic defects. Don’t worry! They haven’t been totally wrecked, they just have small ink marks or scratches that occurred during transit to our office. You can see images of these small damages below.
