The woman behind the camera:
My name is Jessica Trump and no, we're not related.
If I had to choose just ONE word to describe myself, it would be extreme. My emotions and personality are always at the far end of the spectrum. I'm either extremely happy, extremely excited, extremely passionate, extremely angry or extremely sad. I sometimes wonder what it would be like to be sane.
I am loud, ridiculously extroverted, I have zero filter, I laugh at everything, and I think I'm pretty fun. My nickname is Jess the Mess due to the fact I am 34 and still haven't figured out how to adult.
I am a single mom with two bad-ass warrior girls. We live a minimalistic, simple life in a little house so we can afford to travel and create adventures!
I also have a deeply emotional and compassionate side, which is why I've spent years fighting against human trafficking and supporting refugees.
My favorites: Arbys, dancing, vodka, thrift stores, Harry Potter, tattoos, talking, making costumes, the 90s, and my sexy boyfriend Jim.
If you want to learn more about me, you can stalk my personal instagram. I'm an open book and an over-sharer... so enjoy.
I have always been a creative and crafty person. I graduated from Houghton College with a degree in Marketing and Graphic Design. I got my first job straight out of college working for Oswego County Tourism - doing web design, advertising, marketing, writing press releases, working trade shows, blogging and occasionally taking photos. I started dabbling in photography after my first daughter was born. I would play around with my new camera and post photos on facebook, which caused people to become interested in booking shoots. I started offering free shoots, then after a year of experience, I acquired my DBA and began shooting on the side. Soon after, I created a facebook page and a blog. In May of 2012 I was able to quit my full time job and pursue photography full time!
I've come a long way in eight years. My work has since been featured on numerous online and print publications. I host succesful workshops for other photographers, and have started traveling internationally to photograph sessions for clients.
