When was your aha moment? My aha moment was leaning over an enlarger in the darkroom during my senior year of high school in New Hampshire. I still didn't know what I wanted to be when I grew up. I was printing images of my hound dog when I realized that this is what I wanted to do and be. Those prints entered a contest at the college I wanted to attend. I won and received money towards my tuition every semester while earning my B.A. in photogrpahy.
I've lived in South Florida for the past 12 years and my photography has advanced into what I love working with the most: newborns, children and families. Capturing sincere moments during fun and creative session is the motivation that keeps the creativity gears moving. Sessions with Jessie Lee Photography are fun and unique, focusing on the personality of my clients. Check out what they have to say here!
In 2013, I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and received a full thyroidectomy. After going through a painful struggle and cancer treatments, I wanted the world to know about this very misunderstood medical condition. Through powerful words and images, my first article 'Silent Disease' was recognized and published at Hypothyroidmom.com in the beginning of 2014.
I was blessed yet again with my advocacy of thyroid health and was asked to contribute another article and photography early 2015 titled 'Warrior Survival: Life After Thyroid Cancer' about my struggle a year later in hopes to help thousands around the globe cope and gain much needed information to help them live a better life.
