About

Hi there,

I’m Jessica, the writer and photographer of Days of You and Me.  A bit about me:

I talk a lot.

I love to tell stories.  And crack jokes.

I am a mom.  I have two kids: a girl and a boy.  Annabelle and Levi.  Their shenanigans are the inspiration for many blog posts.

I have a cat named Toby.  He is fat and beautiful and cuddly.  Lots of people tell me is like a dog.  And I take that as a compliment.

I also have a dog.  Phinneus. Phinny Phinn Phinn.  Phinny Binny.  The Phinn Meister.  Mr. Phinntastic.  Yes, my dog has lots of lovey dovey silly nicknames.  Because I love him.  I won’t share my kids’ and hubby’s nicknames and risk embarrassing them eternally on the internet.

I grew up in Derby, Connecticut, a little town alongside the Housatonic River.  This is one of the prettiest places I’ve ever seen.  Love the people there, the warmth, and the small town that I grew up in.

Ten years ago I relocated to Washington, D.C. (we’re in Ashburn, Virginia.  Greatest place to raise kids.  Love it here.)

I studied English and education.  I’ve taught first graders, middle school, adult education and community college.  Once upon a time I thought I’d grow up to be a professor of English or Comparative Literature.  Life spun me around and I landed in the perfectly unexpected place: a fairly well read photographer  and mom of two.  And I’m kind of happy that life unfolded that way.

I read as much as I possibly can.  I believe education is what will change the world for the better and love is what makes the world go ’round.  I believe in being in the moment.  I like to travel, see new places and meet people.  I  think that my being a portrait photographer is rooted in love. I do my absolute best to capture moments and create images that speak to who my clients are in their lives.  I love my clients, whether they be professionals, families,  high school seniors, kids or babies. I love getting to photograph people and help them tell visual stories.  This is such an honor for me.

Thank you for stopping by, :-)  I love getting to know my blog’s visitors, so please do drop a comment or an e-mail, okay?  I would love to hear from you.

Warmly,

Jessica
