All about me, in a nutshell of course

Hi! I am Jessica, a first-gen, Latina small business woman owner. I am usually behind the lens capturing amazing moments for my clients, but once in a while I like to get all done-up and show my face, like in this case. Before I tell you more about me, and how I came about turning my passion into a dream come true; let me tell you about who was behind the camera for this photo as they are an integral part of my photography journey. Alina, my creative daughter, took the picture and my, noble hearted son, Logan assisted in making this image possible. They both have in some shape or form assisted me in the past with my photoshoots and in some cases some of my families may have had the pleasure in having them be part of there session as a background entertainment.

I fell in love with photography while in the darkroom of my high school photography class. It has always been a part of me but it didn't take off 'till the birth of my first son, which of course was my first model.  my crazy dream of one day being able to create special photographic memories for others wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for my Logan.

Throughout the years I have taken courses  & done extensive research to learn how to manipulate the camera & do what I envision. I work hard to create your vision and meet my standards. My attention to  detail is very much due to my first career as a Registered Dental Hygienist. My 14 years in the  field has taught me what I believe are great attributes in the photography realm. It has given me great customer service ideals, understanding of color & lighting {which is critical in photography} along with patience.


Though most of my patience, if not all, is credited to my beautiful kids. My youngest little princess, Alina, is now 8 years old. her independence, sweet but strong character leaves me in aww all times. Above all she teaches me to be in the moment and be creative, she is quite the artist as well.

When I first picked up my DSLR & started practicing with my son I had dreams to start my photography business but something unpredictable occurred that required my undivided attention. My son started early intervention at the age of 2 and fast forward to the age 4 he was diagnosed with Autism. All those years of therapy leading up to his diagnosis were pivotal for his current successes . He has come a long way but will continue to need constant therapy for his future to  be, we hope, as "normal" as possible. He is currently in middle school as an independent 11 year old.


Therapy does not come without a price; the need to fight for my son's therapy was fused with my creative bone, passion for Photography and with the support of my husband I decided to pursue my dream.  if it wasn't for my kids alogs Photography by Jessica would not be what it is now. that is why there names will forever be intertwined with my photos; so for anyone that was curious why alogs?  Let me explain al represents my daughter, Alina, while logs represents my son, Logan. You put both together & that is how we get alogs!
