Hello friends! My name is Jaime Denise.
I am a dork. I am a lover of love. I am a story teller.
Here is a little of my heart… I absolutely love what I do. Photography is my passion, my craft, my life. I love people, and I love being able to tell their stories through my art. I strive to capture authentic real life, real love, organic expressions. Every photo is a piece of art; a raw moment that will never be the same. I don’t know if I could honestly say that I have a favorite type of session that I enjoy photographing more than the other — each session is handcrafted and special, whether it be a maternity session just before you bring life into this world, or if I am photographing your wedding day, where we will be joined at the hip through every step of your perfect day. Each experience with me will be one of a kind, and I truly hope that we can not only work together professionally, but share in the magic of your important milestones together as friends.
A few quick quirky things you should know about me:
I am a dog mom. She is a purebred Siberian husky that I rescued at 5 months old in Southern California from an overcrowded shelter. She was set to be put down in 3 days, and I just couldn’t let that happen. She has changed my life in all of the best ways possible. I LOVE DOGS. I am a lover of all animals, really. So, if you want to bring your furry friends with you on your session, I will not only encourage it heavily — but I will probably try to cuddle them in between every shot.
I have been a licensed photographer for 5 years, but have been in love with the art of photography for 15 years. I started with film, and have worked my way into digital. I have taken professional classes & workshops to help me along the way, and grow as a professional, and person. I am constantly learning, and that’s my favorite part of this job.
I am originally from the Pacific Northwest, which will always be home… but I did live in Southern California for 4 years which is really where my business took off thanks to the wonderful military community down there. Without that jump start … I wouldn’t have made some of my best friends in the whole world, or be where I am today. I still travel down there twice a year to photograph former clients!
Random facts: I love water, I love all forms of art — and I love to try new ways to express myself even if I am terrible at them, I love singing at the top of my lungs with the windows down, I enjoy spontaneous weekends away to places I’ve never been, I love making a fool out of myself, I love sunsets, and I love wildflowers. If you like any of those things, and think that we should be friends…. that is probably a good sign! :) Feel free to follow me on Instagram below, and follow my Facebook page!
