Who am I?
- I am one of those crazy people who listen to loud music in their car, sing and dance as if no one is watching.
-I am an imperfect mother who loves my children, but often find them driving me crazy!
-I am a lover of animals. Petting fur babies instantly relaxes me.
- I adore babies! I am glad to be done having my own, but find so much joy cuddling with other people's babies.
- I feel closest to God when I am surrounded by nature.
- I am a Chattanooga photographer, also serving Cleveland, Trenton, and NW Georgia.
I never dreamed I would be a photographer. In college, I was fascinated with the medical field. I wanted to help people without having to do anything gross. I have always had a passion to help others. Being compassionate is one of my gifts. So I became a social worker. I have witnessed so much in this field. Dealing with end-of-life care gave me such an appreciation of life, and how life can be too short at times. Wanting to "capture" memories to last a lifetime, is what led me to photography. I get so much joy documenting life through pictures. I continue to be passionate about working in social work and pursuing my love of photography.
They are mothers, fathers, engaged couples and families wanting to capture special memories. Most people want to be able to look back and remember the beautiful stages of life. One of the best ways to do that is through professional photography. Having high quality, edited pictures are something no one ever regrets having. The main regret is life gets crazy, goes by too quickly, and you miss capturing those special moments.
So let me "capture" your engagement, wedding, pregnancy, your newborn, children growing up, those middle school dances, proms, graduations and your family portraits.
In 2009, I started taking online photography and editing courses. I instantly fell in love with the art of portraiture. I had found a joy and passion creating images for people that would last a life time. I have so much fun doing photography! I launched my business, first known as Jessica Mueller Photography, in the fall of 2009 in Chattanooga, TN.
In 2014, I got remarried and gained two step-sons. Soon after, I changed my business name to Jessica Mueller-Sprayberry Photography, so that former clients could still find me.
Over the last year, I have upped my game. I have been more active in photography. I have taken more online classes and learning more about the business side of running a photography business. I especially love doing senior portraits and wedding photography. I still continue to be a social worker in a local nursing home and rehab center. Hopefully one day, I can make photography my full-time career. I am diving in and following my dreams.
So welcome to my new business,Your Life Captured Photography, rebranded June 1st, 2019! I am located in the Trenton, GA area, but most of my clients live in Chattanooga, Ooltewah, Cleveland, and NW Georgia. I hope to get the chance to work with you in capturing your best life!
