Photography for the nostalgic,
the romantic, and the curious

Life is a journey of astounding beauty, and that
is what makes it worth living



Thank you for visiting, and make yourself at home.

I'm Jackie, a lifestyle and brand photographer, light chaser, and story teller based in Virginia. I love to photograph people pursuing their passions, precious in-between moments, new and exciting places and cultures, and the raw emotions of human interaction. If you're looking for a fun, genuine experience and timeless, artistic images, then you're in the right place!

Click on my photo to learn a little more about me, and I hope I get a chance to know you, too.
