It's Jeanne, like three wishes.

My Roots

You can usually find me in a library wearing anything but jeans or other restricting articles of clothing. I spend so much time in the library that the librarians know me by my name and know that I love math and tutoring students. My passion has been teaching since I fell in love with my first grade teacher who taught me to belly laugh at Junie B. Jones books. Teaching is an adventure that I am still chasing but I am so so wicked crazy about. I was born on the shores of Lake Michigan and haven't left since; chasing sunsets, digging my toes in the sand, and diving in the lake are my favorite summer activities. Growing up I was never mainstream, I am definitely not in the norm now, in fact one year my friends all dressed up as superheroes together and I went as Nancy Drew. I  believe my uniqueness and curiosity for other's odd characteristics is why I love photographing people .I enjoy making connections with others and getting down to the authentic and genuine being inside.

Meaningful Moments

I cherish moments that are so authentic to who people are that they are almost predictable. My hope is that when I photograph people I can capture those predictable moments; so that in two days, a year, or when going through photos with your kids you can look back and say "Your grandmother was always mowing down those wavy potato chips." I don't know how to make your arm skinnier or your hair less gray but I do know that you are you and that you are flawless just the way you are. I will bend myself into pretzel positions and probably trip on a rock to get the perfect shot to make you look damn good. You are are an exceptional human being, not just another job. I want to have a relationship with you which will include texting memes to you, taking you out for drinks, and commenting on all of your facebook statuses. I cannot wait to be friends with you and have you laughing until your innards fall to the floor. BUT most of all, I cannot wait to capture YOU.

kind words

 

"Jeanne is first of of all a delight to be around, you can't not smile when she's instructing you to do all these fun activities to capture the candid moments she does. She photographed my fiance and I's engagement pictures and she will be doing our wedding as well. I was so impressed with the photos she caught of us, she is highly talented at a range of styles, but I just loved the amount of natural looking photographs. She captures us as we are, and doesn't try to make us something we aren't. My only fear now is wanting too many photos printed to hang on our walls because I love them all."
