My name is Jessie Ann. New York born and raised, it's no surprise I found a love for photography with so much inspiration around me. I grew up in the Bronx and first discovered this amazing world of capturing life when I was very young. If you ask my family, they will tell you I never went anywhere without my camera. I took photos of everything I saw, running around like the paparazzi with my little Polaroid in hand. Of course over the years the camera has changed but the goal always remained the same: capture the life around me so I could hold on to it forever. For me, I love being able to just sit down and look through all my old photos of friends, family trips, places I've been to and the people I have met along the way. There's no better feeling than looking at a photograph and remembering everything that led up to that moment, how it made you feel, and smiling at the memory of once was. It makes me even happier knowing one of my photos will do this very same thing for someone else.
