Hey, I'm Jinny!

Montana has been my home for over 20 years now. I grew up in a little town in northern Mississippi. I moved to Montana in 2000 to finish my degree in Fine Art at Montana State University. That's when I met the love of my after just 3 days in this beautiful state. I now live in Helena, Montana with my husband, Tom, 3 children; Knox, Gage, and Piper, and our puppy-child Ayla. I can say without a doubt that it is where I was meant to be.

My family and I are super outdoorsy. We love everything outside. And the mountains of Montana makes that part of life so very easy. We love to camp, hike, backpack, sail, hunt, ski, and just about anything else outdoors that you could think of to do. Nature keeps us grounded and connected. It is where we make so many of our memories together.

I absolutely love taking photographs! I have had a camera in my hand since I was about 9 or 10 when my parents gave me my first 35mm film point and shoot. As I got older, my cameras just got fancier. The only thing I am missing now is my very own dark room! Actually touching film and watching it come to life was amazing in college. Don't get me wrong, the digital world is great. But some days I loathe the computer and confines of my desk chair. But in the end, I ultimately love making beautiful photographs! And that's why I'm here. I also love all of the wonderful people I am able to meet. Hearing and seeing your stories makes me happy. And knowing that I can preserve a small part of that for you for years and generations to come brings me so much joy.

“If you are looking for a photographer for life, Jinny is your gal! I am the most awkward person in front of a camera (so is my husband) and she made our engagement and wedding photos so much fun! She was the perfect wedding photographer- she was kind but direct with our large hard of hearing family! She was just what we needed the whole day!! She does very professional boudoir shoots for a perfect gift for your honey and seeing her family portraits gets me excited about when we have kids she will be the one”
