Hey Friend, I'm

Jessica Rice


whole-heartedly believe in 4 hour dinners, planning parties so epic people talk about them for years. Going way over the top on gifts, dancing all of my stress away and raising our kids to live out love and kindness that can change the world. 

A Southern Girl living in San Diego’s Endless Summer! I left dental career path to travel the world with just a camera in hand and spent a year capturing the world’s greatest beauty. I’m a deep believer in waking up at 5 am to own my day, rocking every jumpsuit, losing track of time dining with friends and drinking tea until it fills my veins. I traveled the world in search of life’s greatest adventure and found it in my arms as I held my children. I’m here for you. Here for your adventure and here to share everything I’ve learned along the way.

I am OBSESSED with families. Seriously though, growing up you could always find me hunkered down with some friends parents playing dominos or making pizzas. I spent more time with the parents than I did my friends. So naturally I’m obsessed with family shoots. I love getting to spend a few crazy and beautiful hours […]
