Contact Jessica





Hi! I'm Jessica, the photographer and owner of Shared Light Photography, located in the Quad Cities (IA/IL)!

I have been married to my husband Daniel for almost 8 years and we have one kiddo of our own.  His name is Charlie and he is pretty much the greatest ever! I know, I'm one of those biased moms now!

I am a coffee addict, Netflix binge artist, lover of tacos, sunlight and adventure.  I 'have an oil for that' and believe in the goodness and beauty of this world. I am obsessed with our 96 year old house and making it as cozy a place for my family as possible. We are devoted DIYers and do all our house projects ourselves. I love slouchy shirts and black skinnies and fall weather when I can wear my favorite scarves.

More than anything, I am so beyond blessed to have so many amazing clients!

I am a natural light portrait photographer focusing on families. How they start, how they grow and where they go. I use minimal, natural posing to capture your family just being. I am a sucker for details and love to get those little moments that often get overlooked: tender smooches, big ol hear hugs, giggles and belly laughs, hand holding and joke telling. Every detail that makes your family special- that is what I want to capture.

I'm a fool for sunset and getting that last bit of golden daylight to shine on you for your photos. I move quick but let you indulge in the time spent together. I keep my shoots fun and simple and capture memories. And I can't wait to work with you.
