Jamie lives in Lake Placid NY with her rescue dog, Blu and her husband Justin. She spends most of her free time in and on mountains via foot, bike, and rope. She enjoys wool socks, trained pandora stations and breakfast foods at any hour.
Ryan is Jamie’s older brother. He lives in Sandy Creek NY with his wife Leann, rescue dog Squirt and frighteningly fast toddler Lorelei. He has been known to feed/change/wrangle her while simultaneously winning consecutive hands of high-stakes poker.
Ryan and Jamie grew up in a house 35 minutes from the closest grocery store. The bedrooms were small, but warm. The kitchen smelled like garlic or baked apple pie or chicken and dumpling soup. Their father left for work often before they were out of bed.
Ryan once wrapped his sister (four years his junior) in blankets, put her in a barrel and then sent her rolling down a hill. Their mother waited at the bottom with her camera. Jamie emerged with a mouthful of laughter. Her hair, darker then, reached in all directions as she crawled out and into the grass. This picture, like hundreds of others, would find its way into a photo album that would be loved and held in the laps of family and friends for years to come.
After 30-something years, Jamie and Ryan finally put the who-gets-the-front-seat debate to rest and started a business that they both believe in. Their goal is to combine honest photojournalism with the depth of portrait photography to document true connection. It is about telling your most authentic story. There is inevitably some element of posing and setting up the shot when it comes to most photography, but whether it’s a wedding or an in home lifestyle shoot, their heart and soul is in the candids. They work best with people who embrace adventure and are excited by the non-traditional.
