i’m jackie

I’m a Midwest girl running on iced coffee, chasing my three kids around with my husband. When I turned 18, my parents gave me a video camera and I started capturing family moments before smartphones were in style. I moved from a quiet Ohio town to Hollywood, where I met my husband, Bob. After we married, we moved to San Francisco and I started my photography business. After being away for a long time, we made the move back east to the Rochester area.

Whenever I pick up my camera, I strive to create emotional images that showcase the beauty of both the people in the images and the world around them. Your story is beautiful and I can’t wait to create images to show that!  

My Family

I met Bob in California, but we grew up three hours away from each other in Ohio. We have been married for eleven years, for most of which we lived in the San Francisco Bay Area.

After the birth of our daughter, we moved back east and now live in the Greater Rochester Area with our three children. We are so thankful for the three of them.


it’s an exciting time

When I was little, I would rummage through a drawer of 4X6 prints in my parent’s dresser. It was full of moments captured of my childhood on film by different family members over the years. I also remember how everyday I walked by a photo at the top of the staircase of my parents’ first kiss at their wedding.
Today, we have our lives documented by smartphones with pictures buried somewhere on a computer. How we take family photos has completely changed. The days of going to a mall studio in formal wear are almost gone. It’s an exciting time for the world of photography.
I can offer families and couples a truly unique photo experience, tailored to meet your wishes, that get your special moments off the computer and onto your wall or in an album to enjoy forever.
