it is quite simple. when it comes to anything in life - relationships, friendships, the work you do, the art you make - when it comes to anything, if it does not create an avalanche within your chest, if it does not move you, and inspire you, if it does not come from the deepest part of who you are, it is not for you.

i'm jesse.

and i'm all about the down right real and  imperfect.

ranchers wife. 
mother.
photographer. 
soul searcher.
i have many titles, but the most important is being a mama. my two boys remind me to let go of all control, close my eyes, slow down and enjoy the moment we are given. something about creating my own tiny humans, bringing them into this big world with nothing but the strength of my own body, then nurturing them from the same source that shared blood for 9 months really changes a person, and their perspective on what matters. 
"while we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about."
i am a wife to my sweet, gentle and giving husband who i have known since i was barely old enough to drive a car. i think we have always known each other, in our past lives and for all the lives we will live. we married in a barn, with the pouring rain making music on the tin roof. he works day in and day out in the hills, on horseback in -30 to +30 to care for the animals and land we have a deep rooted responsibly to take care of. often a thankless job, but worth every minute to have our sons run barefoot or climb on their 4 legged companions whenever their little hearts desire. 
additionally, i am an avid shopper. i love fashion, and expressing myself through funky hats and stuff that’s a little more permanent like the odd tattoo. if sweet tea were water i’d live a long life, our rat terrier named louie thinks he is a human having a dog experience, and waking up to a fresh rain on my wood porch is my favourite kind of morning. i love coffee just as much as you, and i thought i was an introvert until i started surrounding myself with the right people. 
perfectly posed direction is against my religion. don’t be worried if i never tell you to look at me during your session. i love to tell stories through your emotions and these stories speak for themselves when your hands intertwine and your lips lock when you think i’m not looking. i like quiet moments, messy moments, and the moments when you can’t help but get a lil’ freaky. don’t stress about your makeup or hair. come as you are, whole and loved, and let love guide you... oh and trust me.
i’ve got you babe.

i don’t know how or why the good Lord chose this path for me but it’s one i do not take for granted. 
getting to meet and connect with so many amazing souls literally pumps blood into my heart. the heart that feels too much, shares too much, and cares too much. 

is in my blood.
