hi, i'm jocelin!

I don't usually look this put together, so if you're arriving on location - just look for the hot mess with a camera in her hand. 

I am your local - passion driven - oddball photographer, and I'm so excited you've found my page. It is so important to me that our personalities meld in a way that will produce the most beautiful and accurate depiction of your family and your story. So, here is a little about me.

I am a mother of 3 lovely goofballs altogether, 2 older daughters and a toddler boy. They are what drives me to do better in this world, and what has brought me to follow my dream of becoming a full-time family portrait photographer. We are a family of adventurers who enjoy random dance parties and rolling down grassy hills. Any time I am not photographing, I am spending time with my family and creating our own memories.

In my down-time you can find me watching light comedy or reading. I love swimming in the ocean, hiking, creating random art in nature, and long drives with good music.
 
I am an advocate for self-care and mental health awareness. As a person who struggles deeply with my own mental health, I know how important it is to care for yourself. My self care is relative to my art - in a way you could say this is my coping mechanism, and it's one I am proud of. I found photography when I was young and have spent everyday of my life seeing the beauty in the most unusual of places.

I don't want to bore you with my lengthy history, so I'll just say this. Thank you for being here, thank you for enjoying my art. I hope we can make something beautiful together.
