Behind the Scenes

What makes us who we are

Hello, I'm Jackie☺

I will always be a Philly girl...

I was born in Philadelphia + raised there for most of my young life.  The summer after 5th grade, I moved to South Jersey.  I'm very happy to say that I went to Clearview (regional high school), because if I hadn't, I wouldn't have met Mr. Weaver + Mr. Garret.  They both taught me different things in the art world: Mr. Weaver installed the push + drive, and that I can do anything I put my mind to; Mr. Garret was the one who got me into the photography + helped me find my passion!

There are a few other mentors that I have from Antonelli Institute, but since it was a small college, those few are almost every single teacher I had.  I will mention that Bob Golding will always be someone I hold dear to my heart!

Looking through the lens of a camera has been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember.

I bleed orange + black, ask anyone that knows me.  Hockey has been a huge part of my life since I was a little girl.  In fact, my first word outside of "mom + dad" was "goal!"  I can keep up with most sports talk, but have been known to out talk people when it comes to hockey..more specifically, the Flyers.

I have an amazing family!  Between my husband, five fur babies (three cats + two dogs) + a beautiful little girl, my life has been filled to the brim.  Sure, I would love another pair of little foot prints in our lives, but we will get there when the timing is right.

I love everything about fall!!  The colors bring out so much in my work, as well as me as a person.  The smells, the sights, the weather... everything about it calls to me.

In May 2016, we have moved to Myrtle Beach.  My husband got a job that made the move a no-brainer.  It is very hard to live 9-10+ hours away from family, but the look in my daughter's eyes every time her feet hit the sand makes it all worth it.

This is Michael

A Man who knows his 80's...

Michael was born & raise is Southern New Jersey and studied video production at Stockton University.  He found his way to Bloomsburg, Pa to work as Bloomsburg University's TV & media manager back in 2008.  Before reaching his ten year mark, life decided he was fit for something more.  He found himself packing his things (and family) and heading to South Carolina for his new role as Coastal Carolina University's new digital studio director and lecturer.

When he isn't working, Mike enjoys playing baseball, watching movies, writing scripts and goofing around with his little girl.  You wouldn't know it, but he is a bit of a nerd!  (Haha)  He loves his video games and has way too much useless 80's music knowledge to share.
