paying my dues:

As with anything that your passionate about you have to work hard, do things you don’t like, put lots of time and effort in to it and learn in the process. In my fifteen years as a photographer I have worked hard, long hours sometimes seeing the perfect image in my lens only to have the moment fade in an instant.

My years as a professional fine artist gained me much in the way of learning to deal with showings, galleries, and buyers but it’s my year in the trenches of portrait and wedding photography that have gained me the most insight and technical experience.
You know most of what I learned, I learned in the trenches; there’s something to be said about jumping in headfirst.
Looking back I don’t think I would have done it any other way. The Lord leads you in a direction and no matter how much you dislike it or second-guess, you just have to pay your dues.

Thank you to all my clients who trust me and my vision…I know it’s hard to understand what an artiest sees so thank you, I have gained so much and been so blessed to have all of you in my life. So why am I writing this? Well it’s because of the amazing emails that I’ve been getting from all of my wonderful clients and here is one I would like to share.

Hi Jessica,
We are so exited about the photos. They are a perfect representation of our special day. The bridal pictures were also great. I'd forgotten how much fun we had that day. My family and friends can't stop talking about you and the pictures. You have an amazing talent for capturing these special moments! By the way, you are now an honorary member of our family Thank you and Jodie so much for all the hard work. I forwarded the link to your blog to friends/relatives and I received so much praise to you that I wanted to share some of the responses....
