So here it is... The beginning of Jacqueline Blake Photography. Right now it's a "low-fi start-up" which means one camera, one backdrop, two lights, a tri-pod and a great deal of heart and high hopes. I have a small studio in my unfinished basement that with any luck, will grow into a polished and professional portrait business.
How did it all start? Before switching my college focus to web design, I was majoring in photography. I was accepted to the Art Institute of Chicago but a few weeks before leaving for school I met a guy who I fell head over heels for. I only lasted a month in Chicago... I had to come home to him. I didn't have a back-up plan for a photography degree in MN so I quickly decided to go to school for graphic and web design. That guy I fell for asked me to marry him a of couple years later and now we are a happy family of four living in Ham Lake. I've had a successful career as a web designer/developer and digital marketer but have always had the art of photography tugging at my heart.
So now it's time to follow my heart back to the beginning... And start a new adventure!
Wish me luck!
