Hello everyone! I am so excited to be working with Swadley Studio as their marketing assistant! Lori is so happy that she will now be able to show off their recent wedding and portrait sessions on the blog and social media. For me, scrolling through all the photos is so much fun! I will also be working with them on select shoots and trying to up my photography game by tackling a wedding with them occasionally.
If you’re wondering what I look like, Lori took some great picture of me just for this post!
So, let’s get personal. The most interesting thing about me right now is that I live full-time in a RV. My husband and I just moved from Fredericksburg, VA to Harpers Ferry, WV. We sold our house in Fredericksburg and are technically homeless until we move into our new house in October. Living in a RV has been an experience since we have one of the smaller ones, not a studio apartment on wheels. The most frustrating thing is probably doing the dishes ALL THE TIME. But, we love the area! It is such a refreshing change from the tightly-packed townhouse and roadways of our past. My two dogs and I are especially happy we don’t have to drive a hour and a half anymore to go hiking.
Speaking of my two fur children, they are the stars of Lori’s photos.
My photography journey started out in 2004 as a photojournalist for the Army. However, it sat by the wayside for bit while I finished college, got married, and worked full-time. Recently, I’ve pulled out my old Nikon D60 for some practice. My most famous subjects are Randy, the little black one, and Snoopy, the spotted one. For all of you wondering, Snoops is a Dalmatian and Lab mix. Not a German Shorthair, like my husband originally thought when he picked him up at the pound. If you want to keep tabs on the two pups and our camper lifestyle you can always find me on Instagram (@jes_roselife). Below are some shots I took of the fur children.
