Jessica Giles The Photographer My name is Jessica, which was the most popular name of 1983 and the year I was born. What can I say besides that I am truly blessed and that I have the most amazing family and friends. My parents are two amazing people that have inspired me to be unique and follow my dreams. I have a beautiful little girl who is already trying to take better pictures than me and she's only five! :) Besides being an awesome photographer, I love to cook and come up with new healthy paleo recipes. When I am not in the kitchen or taking pictures, you can find me at the gym or box doing Crossfit. I graduated from the University of Alabama and I am a huge Alabama fan! Roll Tide! Also, painting and antiquing furniture is a hobby of mine. Disney World is one of my favorite places to go and my dream vacation is to either backpack through Europe or spend a week in Fiji. I'm always up for an adventure and love to laugh and literally smile just about all the time and yes I am always dancing like no one is watching. I continually love learning new lighting and editing techniques to enhance my images. Not only do I love to learn, but I love to share my knowledge with other photographers and give back every chance I get. Without the help of other photographers sharing their knowledge and expertise with me, I wouldn't be where I am today. Being in a military family and living in five states and the beautiful country of Italy, I have always been fascinated and inspired about the different cultures all around me, and to be able to capture a glimpse of someone's story with my camera amazes me every time. Plus I am a total romantic and I love seeing people in love! Every love story is different and its my job to tell it with pictures.
Me and My sweet Momma when I was a tiny little baby! She is the most wonderful woman I know.
I was just the cutest right!
I lived in Italy for 3 years and went to an Italian Catholic School and learned to speak the language fluently. Although I have lost the ability to retain most of it through the years I still remember the basics.
Gotta love the 80's! Portrait of me and my super cute little brother Chase.
Reunited with my dad after he spent 6 months in Egypt. This is one of my favorite memories and still makes me cry thinking about it. I love my dad and I'm so pround of everthing he has done for our country. He is my hero! While serving in the Army he was awarded the Bronze Star for the Invasion of Grenada.
I loved all sports, but soccer was my favorite.
Me and My highschool besties! Love them!
The college years! Doesn't this remind you of a picture from Cheers or something.
I love Disney World and it probably is the happiest place on Earth. A few years ago I actually ran the Disney Marathon for Team in Training and raised money for Leukemia and Lymphoma. I have it on my bucket list to do it again.
Love my little angel! Can't believe she'll be in kindergarten next year.
Nothing like a Mother's Love.
Me and my sweet girl playing in the leaves!!
Little Ms. Personality!!! Love her so much and thankful for her everyday!
