Hello and welcome!
My name is Sherri Jane and I am a lifelong lover of photography.
I started my career at the young age of 17 photographing children's portraits at the mall- where I quickly learned about posing, how to get kids to smile, and how to win some awards.
After attending college at Northern Illinois University, I worked as a photo retoucher for a real estate marketing company. I always love seeing all of the nicely decorated homes and dreaming of what it would be like to live there.
I photographed my first wedding in 2006, for my college roommate's cousin. With the profits from that wedding I was able to purchase my first professional lens: the Canon 24-70mm 2.8L, for the zoom and low light abilities. Click HERE to see what's in my bag now.
In the summer of 2008, I was in search for love, pretty light, and adventure. I packed up my car and followed my heart across country to the Golden State.
Here we are, 9+ years later and I'm small business owner based in Los Angeles . I have had the great honor in photographing over 140+ weddings, 3500+ properties including hotels for Orbitz.com and commercial offices for Regus. I have also photographed corporate events for Sony at the E3 Press Expo and Destination Playstation- traveling to Arizona, Costa Rica, and Cabo. These days you can find me photographing million dollar homes, planning a fun photoshoot for one of my portrait clients, or mentoring other photographers just starting out with their business.
In my (rare) free time I enjoy foodie adventures, road trips, and interior design. I also recently went on my first trip to Europe! Check out my fun blog post HERE including what I packed, favorite food, and my favorite sights.
I truly feel blessed to have a creative career where I am able to do something challenging and fun everyday. If you are in need of great photography services I would love to talk to you more!
