About Sherri J

Okay, we both know you're here mostly for the pics but you might also be a little curious on how this all got started. Am I right?!

Well, here are the super short version:

Sherri’s professional photography career started early in life. Her first job was at the age of 17 photographing children’s portraits at the mall. She quickly learned about posing, how to get kids to smile, and won some awards. She attended Northern Illinois University where she photographed for the school's newspaper, took horseback riding classes for a year, and taught English in China for a summer. After graduating, she began work retouching real estate pictures. She always loved seeing the pretty homes and dreaming of what it would be like to live there. On the weekends, she photographed the city's nigh-life and was soon recruited to photograph weddings. After visiting Los Angeles in the winter of 2008, she soon fell in love and made the move across country to follow her dreams.

Over the past 10+ years Sherri has been keeping busy with freelance work. She has photographed 200+ weddings and 3750+ properties including many celebrity homes and million dollar listings.

In her rare free time you can find her playing spades, baking something yummy, or relaxing at the spa.
