Madrid via iPhone and VSCO

There is this huge part of me that loves showing people that getting a great photo doesn’t always mean using mega expensive camera gear. Too many times I hear “that’s an amazing camera!” when I show someone the LCD screen. I’m pretty sure MOST photographers hear that a lot.  I love showing that it isn’t the camera that makes the photographer, it’s the photographer that makes the photo.

While in Madrid I took 0 photos on my DSLR. That’s right. ZERO. (With the exception of the gorgeous workshop I took). Maybe I’m a fool for this, or maybe I just proved something to myself. Either way… here’s a snippet of those iPhone photos I keep talking about.


Taken and edited with an iPhone 5s and VSCO. Check out more of my VSCO grid: Jameykay VSCO grid

Breigh, Lloyd, and Iris



Back in October we had a sweet little maternity venture with our friends Breigh and Lloyd. During Breigh’s pregnancy she kept a journal/blog going, Mountain Hearts, and whenever I felt blue I would go and look at photos of Breigh’s progressing baby belly and read the words she would write in anticipation of welcoming her and Lloyd’s baby girl. Granted, if I know you (or even if I don’t know you) and you’re expecting or you have a baby, I probably look at photos of you and yours when I feel blue. Seeing so much love gets me all mushy and happy. This effect also makes it difficult for me to get through maternity/family sessions because I can’t stop swooning. Oh boy! Enjoy the photos!

Jessi - Absolutely beautiful session from start to finish!

Breigh - I just can’t get over these photographs! They make my heart want to burst… and now that we’ve met our little Iris, I just keep picturing her in there all curled up, being cute. I can’t thank you enough, Jameykay and Tyler. We will treasure these photos always. <3 <3 <3
