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.

“We absolutely loved working with Jinny. We met with several photographers and instantly gravitated towards Jinny's warm and inviting personality. From the get-go, she was essential in helping us with our timeline and what we should think about as far as itinerary as well as other suggestions about moments that might be important to us. She was everywhere we needed her. She has such a fun personality that even though we'd only met a couple of times, she seemed like she fit in like one of the family.”
