I’m Jessica Rae, a Vancouver, BC Canada based intimate portrait and editorial photographer. I am a visionary; a story keeper, and a believer in the power of vulnerability. My alchemic mix of photography and soul resonates deep through a personal journey of uncovering my own beauty.
My photography genre is really vulnerability. It’s beautiful to see the layers peel back when people start to discover who they are. Photography is really the business of creating sacred stories using photographs as the catalyst.
I love watching watching people as they turn from awkward to empowered beauty, through loving their own bodies. I believe it’s the stories that emerge in a comfortable and safe session that remind us who we really are.
I would rather be an hour early than 5 minutes late. I enjoy a good cup of tea with a splash of honey in the morning. I prefer wearing dresses to jeans (contrary to my younger years). If you know the lyrics to a song I think you should sing your heart out (even if you miss every note). I adore my 3 little boys – even when they drive me crazy. I am loyal to a fault. I am an artist at heart and my camera feels like an extension of my soul. My goal is to show you how beautiful you are, just as you are.
There are no unbeautiful women, just women who haven’t realized they’re beautiful.
Our gorgeous studio is located in west Maple Ridge, about an hour outside of Vancouver, BC. Conveniently located just off the Golden Ears Bridge, the studio is easily accessible by anywhere in the lower mainland.
