About the smiling lady behind the camera who is capturing your precious moments:
I’m Jess, a vibrant, passionate and confident photographer who absolutely loves what I do! I have a genuine interest in people and locations and this prompted me to begin my professional photography journey. I believe in capturing images of people and life that are completely unscripted and I delight in snapping impulsive moments and natural expressions. My portfolio is strong in images of engagements, weddings, maternity shots, newborns and young children because I gravitate to this stage in life. Those people that say don’t work with animals and children are really missing out!
People don’t often like getting their photos taken. I understand why, although I will point out that we are pretty judgmental of ourselves and rarely see what others do – our beauty, personality and soul. That’s where I gain your trust, help you to relax and eventually you will forget that I’m there taking all these ‘scary’ photographs. I enjoy every single part of photographing people and am so happy seeing my clients enjoying their photo shoot as well as spending precious time together.
I am based in the wonderful Mount Maunganui village community and love the beach of course, although I do miss my precious home country South Africa. This year I’ve been exploring my current homeland New Zealand and have taken some great photos.
By choosing JK Photography you will receive consistent photographs and build a real trust in my photography skills. Who knows, I may even be photographing your retirement party because I’m never going to stop doing what I love.
If you are looking for a photographer who can provide a relaxed and fun session capturing beautiful candid shots of you and your loved ones then I am the perfect photographer for you!
