Hello there sunshine – I’m Jess!
I’m a world wandering photographer and the girl behind Love Plus Color where I inspire creatives to authentically build and grow their businesses. I believe in following your bliss even if it means going against the grain of what is deemed to be right, normal, or appropriate. I don’t believe in bullsh*t and anyone telling you must do “blank” in order to be happy, successful, or whatever.
I’m a natural-born rebel and I finally found my freedom when I stopped trying to put myself in everyone’s else box of what I should do or be.
I get giddy with major excitement when I see others step into themselves the same way. I thrive on taking risks and nothing makes me happier than seeing people around me do the same. I love seeing fellow creatives own their unique gifts and use them to empower themselves and others around them. I strongly believe life is fully meant to be enjoyed and we each have our unique paths to find that.
In July 2016 I left everything behind in Los Angeles to trade it all in for wandering the world while running my business + blog from anywhere and everywhere.
It’s kind of a lengthy story so if you want to read it all go here. So long story short – I built a great life but it felt so far from right so I decided to fully commit to following my dream of exploring the world as a nomad. Basically, I am glamorously without a home, living out of my suitcase indefinitely. It’s been a wildly beautiful and sometimes really messy adventure that I love sharing with you along the way.
I have a serious love affair with color, photographing humans, and authenticity.
I think a person’s favorite color says a lot about them. That’s usually my 1st question to anyone I meet. My favorite colors are yellow and blue. You can always catch me in a dance break… pretty much any time, any place. You can also catch me taking 1 million photos in a random city around the world that I share via my blog.
I left my corporate design job in the fashion industry many moons ago because it was sucking up my creative spirit. I have a deep love for fellow creatives, bloggers and people who are positively shaking things up in the world. I know what it’s like to have an undeniable urge to follow creative dreams so I’ve learned to hustle for the things that matter and f*ck the things that don’t.
