The short version is I’m a quirky badass with a camera, who loves cake. I’ve traveled the world (via Epcot #Disneylover) documenting memories and making friends along the way. My clients understand that they may hear an occasional f bomb and that I’m open to all sorts of new adventures to capture great shots.

Not a fan of:

• People who think blush and bashful are the same color
• People who make my ass twitch

*(If you got either of these movie references, you’re my kind of client.)

Hey there! I'm Jessica, the owner and lead photographer at Breaking Tradition. If you're here, it's because you're looking for something more than just a run-of-the-mill photoshoot. You want an experience that makes you feel alive, empowered, and maybe even a little bit sexy.

As an entrepreneur and a woman who's all about breaking the rules, I understand the importance of doing things your own way. That's why I started Breaking Tradition – to help women like you embrace their unique style, personality, and beauty. Whether you're interested in boudoir, conceptual portrait sessions, or something in between, we've got you covered.

At Breaking Tradition, we're all about empowerment – but we're also all about having fun. Our dark and edgy style might not be for everyone, but if you're looking for photos that make a statement, we're the ones to call. We're not afraid to push the boundaries and create images that are a little bit daring, a little bit provocative, and a whole lot of epic.

One of our specialties is dream sessions – we love bringing your wildest fantasies to life. Want to be a fairy, a goddess, or a mythical creature? We'll create custom costumes, sets, and props to make your vision a reality. We believe that every woman deserves to feel like a queen, and we're here to make that happen.

So if you're ready to break tradition and create something truly unique, let's make some magic together. Whether you're a boss, a rebel, a dreamer, or all of the above, we can't wait to work with you.
