There are two things that I love in life… people and pictures! (Ok, maybe I love a couple more things).
My name is Jessica Ryan and I have a background in design, having studied Visual Communication in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Part of my studies included photo journalism. From there I went on to earn a living doing various things, from marketing to art teaching and finally these last number of years in Dublin based NGOs.
Over the last 10 years photography was a hobby, something that I worked hard to learn and developed into what I think is a unique and individual style. After the birth of my son I decided that I would turn my hobby into a career. Over the last couple of years I have had great experiences and success shooting a range of projects including weddings, engagement photos, family and children, documentary style projects, professional portraiture, gigs, travel and most recently school portraits. Most of the time when I am walking down the street I am seeing every picture along the way. I am thrilled to have this opportunity to turn something that I love into something that I can share with you and your family!
This picture makes me smile, because my 5-year-old took it when I was doing school portraits at his school. Maybe I’ve got a little photographer in the making!
