I have been taking pictures for as long as I can remember. My Dad used to have a darkroom in our basement and as a child I would spend time watching him develop pictures. I have always loved photography, whatever I am doing with it, it always reminds me of those times.
I went to college and received my Bachelor's degree in psychology. I spent the first 17 of my adult life working with individuals that had mental illness and developmental disabilities. The last 10 years of that was in a Director of Services capacity. I got a lot of experience about business during that time as well as working with people.
I started my professional photography career working for The Picture People and was a studio manager for a few years before Jen and I started J and S Photography back in 2011.
Now almost 5 years later and I could not be happier! It's so rewarding making your passion into a livelihood.
