HEY! I'M Jaclynn.

I'm in love with love -- & obsessed with breakfast.

I like to remind myself to walk slower. This life is beautiful if we choose to see it that way. I take "girls trips" with various groups of friends almost every month...sometimes twice a month...these trips usually turn into "Masterminds" because that's just the kind of influence I am. My hair is 50 shades of pink all year because it matches my fierce, feminine, and crazy artist soul. 

still curious?

SJP was born
9/23/2015

I PICKED UP A CAMERA just months after my first son was born -- but that's mid story

I grew up an intense competitive musician. I had a late start but the discipline I mastered in those eight years was a bit inhuman. With time, the vision of the best possible outcome for a career as a classical bassoonist became less meaningful. I left music & spent seven long years working part time with the U.S. Army (AKA The Government Orphanage for Lost Adults). My artistic soul stirred and pulled until I could be aligned with my career as a Fine Art Wedding Photographer, but it happened! Picking up a clarinet was the butterfly's wing that knew I would find myself here in the end. A little more "Hollywood Artist" shines through every shoot and I'm beginning to understand where the stereotype for crazy artists come from. I see things no one else does ("This light needs like a -2 magenta, + 0.08 exposure. a +3 Dehaze, and we'll have to see about those reds later.  For Gods Sake just turn ALL the lights OFF!") Even I have to roll my eyes sometimes...

Behind every successful woman...

This is Clynn.
He is my person.

Husband of 8 years, supportive beyond belief, SJP Assistant/Second shooter

This man has been the most constant, strong, and supportive person in my life. I can definitely be a "people pleaser" but in the end, it's all about making this guy proud and happy. I couldn't be more blessed to call him mine and me his. If you hire a second shooter for your wedding with SJP, he will likely be by my side running errands and getting the most gorgeous big wide shots of your day. He's also a pro at all things men's formal wear! (Seriously though. 10+ ways to tie a tie in this genius noggin'.)

HA! NO THANKS

can't live without

French Press

It's not just about the coffee. It's about the ritual. The scooping, pouring, stirring, pausing, smelling,
and smiling.

cow milk

Clynn and I haven't bought cow milk at the grocery store in over six years. I've maybe had a sip once a year. It just doesn't seem right for us.

hot yoga

Whenever I talk about "getting my act together" emotionally, spiritually, physically, it always comes back to this. ♥

Running in the cold

Ya'll are friggin crazy. That shiz SUCKS. Chest hurts, face hurts, --JUST NO.

vegan bars

We live a pretty active lifestyle so on-the-go food is a must or we end up in the drive through waaay too much! My fave? gomacro peanut butter chocolate chip.

dishes

Least. Favorite. Chore.
Clynn and I hate doing dishes. It's a constant battle. Anyone want to be our "dishes" specific cleaning lady/dude?

Maskcara

I didn't spell it wrong, I mean my IIID Foundation in one compact! Life be crazy and I need my makeup routine simple, natural, and effective. My favorite beauty products!

Mystery ingredients

I've been an obsessive label reader on everything since I had a 4 month run of veganism in 2014! I prefer to know what I'm putting on and in my body.

eating out

Clynn & I LOVE eating out but try keeping it to a minimum while paying off student loans. Easily where most of our "fun money" goes!

The mall

I find myself here every once in a while but am so not a fan. We prefer to do all of our shopping online (to include groceries!!!)

Morning Fires

It's like grad school

pipe dreams & new rings
