I am pleased that you want to know more about me!
I have many loves in my life but a few of them include coffee, autumn, anything pumpkin, boots, and the color pink! I adore music and singing along, but whether I am any good at it is open to interpretation. I love video games (Left 4 Dead 2, Grand Theft Auto 5), shopping, and comedy.
I enjoy photographing moments that I feel are special and things that I believe are precious, from walking down a staircase to watching someone cracking a smile.
Jessah is a nickname that some close friends and family have called me and I just love it! My parents were inspired to name me "Jessica" after actress Jessica Lange!. Although I like to think I am not quite as much of a villain as she has recently portrayed on American Horror Story...
I am so blessed that I get to do what I love for a living. Professionally and personally, photography is what I am immersed in. I've been studying photography in school since I was 13 years of age. My parents met in a photography studio in New York City, and some have called me a "darkroom baby." I definitely come from a creative family. Creativity is in my blood. Photography came naturally to me. I've been told that I have "an eye" for photography. I will always continue to develop my skills. We are never finished learning!
I have a great partner and best friend in my life; my husband! We can do everything together. Our relationship is the kind that I dreamt of but did not think was possible. I never thought I would get married until I met him, and then everything worked about splendidly!
I love relationships, and enjoy nurturing the ones that are genuine. I say that I have a bleeding heart because I hate watching people that I know suffer. I have a giving heart and love to touch other people's for their benefit, not mine.
I am surrounded by an amazing support team including my parents, my husband, and very close senior photographers. I continually move forward despite the obstacles that come across my path. It can only challenge me to develop into a better person and refine my skills.
A few years ago, I saw one of my favorite comedians, Brian Regan, do a stand-up show. He told a long joke, and at the end, only a few people laughed. He just looked out at the crowd, leaned forward, and tapped the toes of his foot on the stage behind him. He said "That's how you know a joke isn't funny. You just try it out." The audience applauded loudly in his support. He continued by saying, "You have to risk failure, you have to risk failure."
