Episode 61 show notes

Studio photography can seem daunting—especially if you’re used to the ease and beauty of natural light. But as Bushels & Pecks owner Jessica explains in today’s conversation, it might not be as hard as you think.

Jessica dove into photography full-time after she became a mother. She left her elementary education career behind and started small in a spare bedroom at home.

When Jessica committed fully to indoor studio shooting, she did encounter learning curves and hurdles. But she insists that, with a little research, you can overcome your fears and establish a style that suits your vision.

Listen to learn how Jessica manages the technical side of her work, how she has embraced efficiency, and how much she adores the human face.

“It wasn’t until I had my son about six years ago that it was less about pretty pictures and more about the meaning behind the photo and the memory it captured.” — Jessica [0:00:44]

“I started charging for sessions while I was teaching elementary school, so I would teach all day and then I’d go meet a family at a local park in the evenings for golden hour.” — Jessica [0:01:21]

“Photography is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. So I never went back to teaching. I set up a little makeshift studio in my spare bedroom, and the rest is history.” — Jessica [0:02:37]
