Let’s be friends, you and I. I’m Jasmine, a ridiculous canuck photographer and storyteller, serving the world from my home base in San Diego. I’m armed with incorrigibly curly red hair and freckles. I believe that people matter to each other. And something happens when they get connected. Something hopeful and tender and dazzling, like a million fireflies twinkling in the trees beside a silent river. But something comforting, too, like PB&J, or mac & cheese, or PB&J on mac & cheese (ew).
I think there is magic in each of us, In unexpected places, like that funny spot behind your ear, or tucked into the back pocket of your jeans like an old ticket stub. Not hocus pocus. Optimism and possibility and all those quirky, awkward, embarrassing things we do with our favorite people when the world isn’t watching. This is what I find every time I pick up my camera. I see people extending this tangible wonder out to one-another, powerfully criss-crossing, like the lasers from the late-eighties photo day backdrops of my braids ‘n’ braces schoolgirl years. That’s where I come in. To preserve the fleeting, unexpected moments that are intangibly connecting people, and to tell the story that those moments add up to. Let’s chase fireflies. Let’s consume copious amounts of PB&J sandwiches. Let’s throw caution into the wind. Let’s get connected. Let’s frolic together.
