- Dean Jackson
Born and raised in Upstate New York - I was one of those classic small town stories. Ya know, the one where the girl runs off with the boy, only to come back to her hometown? Yup, that was me! And there's no shame in admitting that my roots are planted right where they came from.
I'm a wife to my best friend Austin and together we have 2 rambunctious pups - Mack + Hunter. We enjoy living a pretty simple lifestyle on our little homestead.
When I'm not working, you can usually find me jammin' out to a throwback + exploring the mountains of either the Adirondacks or the Catskills.
Before photography, I worked as an EMT and attended college for a degree in Paramedics. Little did I know, this is how I'd find my ever-so-handsome Prince Charming. Austin did the ole' slide into my Insta DM's one night ... The rest is history.
In July 2019, I suffered a stroke. Thinking my entire life changed for the worst, it actually did the complete opposite. I remember sitting in rehab, telling Austin there was something bigger + better out there. I don't want to say picking a camera back up changed my life - but it really did!
Then theres ... COFFEE. I kinda have a slight obsession with visiting cute little coffee shops + trying out local faves.
Say hello to our lil' fam of 4. This is us and our 2 pups - Hunter, a Chocolate Lab + Mack, a Pitbull. I swear, these pups never leave my side - you might even catch them riding around to your session.
8.1.2020 I'm totally a COVID bride -Austin + I canceled our big wedding plans and spontaneously eloped the best way we knew how - at the top of our favorite mountain, with our two boys at sunset.
