Jessi is a sweet and spacy documentary photographer currently soaking up the mountain vibes in the foothills of the Wasatch Front in Salt Lake City, Utah. After her older son was born she left a career in social work to be a professional bum wiper, owie kisser, and peanut butter sandwich maker.
People’s complex relationships with their environment, the people around them, and the broader system they operate within is a driving factor in Jessi’s personal and professional passions. Having long been interested in the way that visual media can move individuals to empathize and relate, she is eager to explore how documentary photography can be used as a means of visual advocacy.
When she isn’t tending to her two little boys, her haphazard garden, or taking on impulsive home improvement projects you will most likely find her hiking, traveling, or chasing birds and children; always with a camera in hand.
