About Jesseka

The way I photograph and the reason why I am photographing are connected.  I want to know your story, so I can creatively capture it through my lens.  I am inspired by emotions, and the connections between people and their loved ones.  Thus, my style of photography is very genuine and candid.

I've always wanted to learn photographing in film.  This medium reminds me of old photographs and going through family albums.  Unlike digital, film was not made to accurately represent what the retina sees - I love the aesthetic of light leaks or when some photos turn out a little blurry.  Although I primarily shoot with digital gear, I do emulate the raw, grainy aesthetic of film in my images.  I do believe that this emphasizes the genuinity and candidness in my work.

I am a mommy of two loving little boys (yes, this handsome boy in the photo is one of them!) and I love spending time with my family.  When it's time to put my gear down, I'm usually at the hockey rink or cuddling up on the couch with them watching movies (musicals are our favourite)!

I am a lifestyle and event photographer photographing primarily within the Greater Toronto Area, and available for travel worldwide.
