Art has always been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. And as an art major at college, I found a passion for photography. Hours in the darkroom and behind the lens were hours well spent. I could easily spend 6 hours and have no idea that much time had past. When I graduated, the practical and Business minor side of me took over and I entered the field of marketing.

The birth of my children changed my life in amazing ways as most parents are acutely aware. It came time to leave my traditional work behind and stay home with my children full time. As each month passed, I realized that each moment was fleeting and there's no time like the present to start doing what you love. I also realized that I wanted my children to grow up knowing they can have dreams. And more importantly, that no matter how big or how small, those dreams can be realized. But how could I instill that confidence in them, if I didn't bite the bullet and make one of my own dreams come true?

So here I am, strolling down a new path, hoping that one day my children will know that dreams can come true.

A Roaring Twenty21

While the path isn't so new anymore, it's still an adventure. The business has grown in amazing ways over the last decade (despite the 2020 blip ;) and my heart is full.  The portraits we create become more to the families than I could have ever dreamed possible ~ they are such an important part in creating a family's legacy for future generations.  And the commercial headshots, and branding work allows businesses to showcase who they are, and what they offer their clients. Meeting each and every one of you has been a pleasure.  Thank you for trusting Lily Jack Photography with your portraits.
