“Don't shoot what it looks like. Shoot what it feels like.”
- David Alan Harvey


Jodi is a Mother to four precious souls, wife to a loving mountain man, daughter, Emotive Family + Motherhood Photographer, and Teacher in beautiful Sonoma County, California. She is passionate about creating living poetry with her imagery and nothing fills her heart more than producing meaningful Art that truly tells unique, tangible stories of connection, beauty, and truth. Photography has been a way for her to foster and share love with others and to be genuine with her craft. Seeing that true human connection and significance in her work, and with those whom she teaches, makes her heart sing. She hopes to inspire others to do some soul searching and to find their true why


Our focus will be to:

  • Explore your craft and heart
  • Tackle strategies to grow your business and create a strong vision
  • Strengthen your session workflow through prompting + shooting with intent + creativity
  • Learn to artistically process and push boundaries with editing
  • Style fluidly and authentically and bring your dreams to life through styling and a strong vision
