Jessica

Jessica received her very first Nikon analog camera from her dad when she was still young, and even though she's grown up (just a little) and gotten a couple new cameras since then, she's always had a Nikon and it's never been far from her reach. From the high school darkroom to the Rhode Island School of Design, she honed her craft. When she's not shooting, you'll find her exploring a world that's full of adventure, traveling somewhere near or afar, but almost always in nature, or cuddling up at home with her husband and their two cats and Jessica's trusty terrier sidekick, Rusty.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE WEDDING MEMORY SO FAR?

Dancing all night long at my wedding with all my friends and family, and especially with my husband!

WHAT IS YOUR MOST PRIZED POSSESSION?

My engagement ring. My husband picked every little detail about it himself and had it custom made. Every time I look at it, I am reminded of how lucky I am to have married my best friend.

IN WHAT HISTORICAL PERIOD WOULD YOU MOST LIKE TO HAVE LIVED?

The twenties! The music, the dancing, the speakeasies, but most of all, the clothes. I love all things extra girly: feathers, beads, sequins, headpieces, hats, coats, the list is endless! The twenties set a high bar for all other fashion eras in my book.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE LOCAL HANGOUT(S) IN LOS ANGELES?

My favorite spot is the happiest place on earth! I'm a huge Disney fan, so Disneyland has to be my favorite place. Another favorite of mine is Orange Circle Antique Mall. It's this small historic downtown area in Orange that has the biggest selection of antiques and cute little speciality shops and restaurants. 

WHERE DO YOU FEEL MOST INSPIRED?

In nature. Climbing rocks along the shore, swimming in the ocean, hiking to the top of a mountain, running through a forest, dancing in a field of flowers…life is good.

WHAT IF I TOLD YOU THAT YOU COULD TRAVEL ANYWHERE RIGHT NOW?

Take me to see the Northern Lights! 

Go-tos

MINNIE MOUSE

Minnie Mouse Bluetooth speakers: I love music, so whether I’m at a picnic, a party, or just at home, Minnie’s got my back! Plus, the speakers are just so darn cute!

0.20MM MICRON PENS

I’m a pen and paper kind of girl and my handwriting is so small that no other pen compares.

MUJI SKETCHBOOK

I love their dotted graph sketchbook. The graph is so faint you can barely see it, and the paper is nice and smooth with a good weight to it.

SOFT BLANKETS

Because who doesn’t love being cozy?

ICE CREAM

Vanilla with rainbow sprinkles in a waffle cone: Classic and delicious! The rainbow sprinkles also just make me happy.

MY DOG'S WHISTLE

It's a device that I keep on my dog that tracks his location and activity feed...basically a Fitbit for dogs with a GPS tracker.
