Hi! Thanks for visiting my body of work. My name is Jaclyn. I'm a photographer, videographer, traveler, artist, aspiring doula, sister, daughter, partner and much more!
I dreamed of becoming an artist since I was a little girl living in Las Vegas. My grandmother (an avid scrapbooker) introduced me to photography with her dinky semi-automatic 35mm film camera. She saw the magic in a moment between family and friends, and captured the innate beauty in everyday places. She instilled a passion to document my life honestly and truthfully.
After graduating college in Washington, D.C. in 2017, I bought an old school bus and converted it onto my off grid motorhome! I found work trades and freelancing gigs in different farms throughout Appalachia. After two seasons down south, I spent the spring months drifting around Northern New England working as an herbalist and photographer, and received an offer in San Francisco. I made a 5500 mile journey across the country in my old bus in August 2018, and since then I've actively freelanced across the Bay Area. I also hold the position as resident Newborn Photographer at California Pacific Medical Center, as well as part time work at Benioff Children's USCF.
Throughout my life, I have had the pleasure of traveling to and living in amazing countries like India, Iceland, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Mexico, Costa Rica, Hong Kong, Spain, Holland, France, Belgium, Germany, and many other spectacular landscapes to photograph. I am an avid lover of the outdoors. Hiking, backpacking, skiing, swimming, skating, skydiving (heck yes!)- I'm in. My passion is portraiture, landscapes, and alternative processes, and to capture things organically and in their element.
