About Me

At JMS Reflections Photography, I understand the quality and love that needs to be put into each and every portrait in order to make it special. We are all too familiar with those portraits of ourselves or our loved ones with that forced, fake, and otherwise uncomfortable smile…You know, the ones where you have to bribe your children or maybe even your significant other to behave.  Your experience doesn’t have to be that way.  Here at JMS Reflections Photography, I specialize in “On-Location” photography.  That means the photo shoot would be in your home, or your favorite outdoor spot.  If you don’t have a special location in mind, don’t worry! I would be more than happy to offer several suggestions of my favorite places.

I feel that the best way to capture natural expressions in a photograph is being outdoors.   Nature settings evoke feelings of curiosity, joy, wonder, and internal feelings of peace.  These emotions are essential during a photo shoot to bring about true facial expression.  JMS Reflections Photography wants you to be able to look back at your portraits and see the reflection of your loved ones’ personality, remembering them the way they truly were in that moment of time.

My approach is a casual and fun experience for the whole family.  I love children and pets and take the time to get to know them before I start capturing your precious moments. That way, they feel more comfortable and relaxed to be themselves.  Sometimes it’s even fun to have the kids get involved in the photography process. Children love learning new things, and this can help put them at ease through the process.

On a more personal note, I am married to a wonderful man and have an amazingly beautiful, 8 year old daughter.  My daughter, Emma, is my true inspiration for photography.  She is an extreme nature lover and truly enjoys everything and anything that has to do with the outdoors.  Emma has awakened my eyes to the absolute beauty that surrounds us each day.  We enjoy camping, kayaking, and hiking, and of course, I take my camera everywhere we go to capture all of our wonderful and memorable adventures! I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful family and to have the ability to do what I love most.

If you are looking for a fun and different experience with truly stunning and natural results, please contact JMS Reflections Photography and I would be happy to discuss how I can assist you and your family capture moments that will last a lifetime.
