About Me

a girl with a camera

Ever since I can remember, I’ve always been interested in taking pictures. I credit my Grandmother for this because she always had a camera in-hand and photographed those moments that were priceless. I still like to reminisce looking at her old photos. “She captured the memory” which means so much to me today. I knew I was going to follow in her footsteps, and capture life as it was happening around me.  I will admit, my kids started to run the other direction when they saw me pull the camera out, but I know they do appreciate having those photos now. As I enter the next chapter of my life, I decided I was going to get back to my love of photography for real this time. With my husband‘s encouragement, I am happy to take my passion to the next level.

J P K PHOTOGRAPHY is in full swing.
