Jessica Simons has always been a creative soul and loved to paint and draw starting at a young age. She had a love for paper, even had a paper closet in her home, and had a dream of owning a stationery store. She started her entrepreneurial journey by setting up a kool-aid stand in her neighborhood but snagged her first real job as a photographer’s assistant where she held the reflector and learned to find the best light.
Jessica majored in graphic design and fell into photography by starting to take photos for friends and family. She shot her first wedding in 2008 and dove into wedding photography because of her passion for couples and marriage. After starting a family, she decided to shift her focus from photographing weddings to photographing families. Jessica’s journey is teaching her lessons in learning to embrace where she is in her business, to trust her intuition, and to pursue the version of success that ultimately fuels her soul.
This conversation is raw, real and full of nuggets that can only come from a foggy morning chat over coffee. Jessica is relatable and full of wisdom – you don’t want to miss this one!
