Oh, heyyy!

I’m Jacilyn, thus the Jacilyn M, but I  mostly go by 

Jackie

If you call me Jacilyn, it’s cool, I’ll answer :) The M is for my middle name, Maryann... just a fun fact.
More fun facts >>

I'm a Cancer (a total moon        child), ENFP, Enneagram 7

I believe that truly living is full of
‘oh wells’ + not ‘what ifs’.
Roll with it babe.

My gut never lies... but I don’t always follow it the first time around.

Good enough is not really enough I think I can do more.
I’m a crazy dog lady, except I don’t own a dog.
I have no will power against sugar + dessert, except chocolate… no thanks.

I carry many titles, but none as important as Mom to this beautiful girl. I’m a single mom, with an awesome ex-husband (turns out we weren’t perfect for each other just perfect for our kid), and now, I’m in a long distance international relationship with the most incredible Canadian guy ever. The one I’m certain I was created to love. Love doesn’t know borders or care for “rules.” Thank the heavens, am I right?!

Life simply turns out in weird ways.

I don’t need to make sense of it all. Just loving it as it is. I think it’s actually

absolutely perfect in its unexpectedness.

It turns out just as it’s really supposed to I think.


Embrace the imperfect, my friend.

This life is fragile and brief. When I was 12 years old my dad suddenly passed away. It was more than half my life ago. We remember him through photos + memories. I’m not that old but even now the time has gone by that I don’t remember all of these memories.

They begin to fade.

But the images I have of him let him live on as his personality comes through in each. It’s like I can almost hear him laughing by just looking at a photo of him. Or like I can feel his embrace again. 

can you hear him laugh?

I carry this with me each time I pick up my camera to photograph you, your love, your friends + family. Someday, I hope very far from now, your memories will fade away of this time. What remains, are these photos of you, of your story. I don’t just leave you with images you think are beautiful. 

I want you to FEEL them.

When you reminisce back to these days + look at the photos you may not remember what happened, where you were exactly, or what was said, but 

you’ll lose your breath for a split second
as you can FEEL how that moment felt again.

I’m not creating images where every little piece of it is conducted + posed. I just guide you in a way that gets you comfortable + lets you                     

unfold.

So I can capture you, your love, your story, just as it is. 

All “flaws” included. 

That’s what actually makes you, this love, this story... perfect.
