Meet Jessica


I’m Jessica, the snap-happy and somewhat (OK, completely) obsessed dog mama to my husband and mine’s eight-year-old Siberian retriever named Hunter. And that handsome guy beside me is my Frisbee-catching, super-shedding best friend. (He's also the top dog around here.)

When my husband bought me my first DSLR in 2012, Hunter fast became my favorite fur-faced model. I love having photos of him growing up as a part of our family and capturing moments of companionship, love, joyfulness, and even mischief that I know we will always look back on and treasure. 

Hunter is my heart dog. He is the reason why our home is a little hairier, our bed a little tighter, and our hearts a lot fuller; he is the inspiration behind Bark & Gold Photography.

What Else You Should Know About Me

I'm a southern-born and Pittsburgh-bred black and gold girl at heart who loves sunflowers, all things fall, and cheesy jokes (seriously, the cornier the better). I'm an ISTJ personality type to a tee. You may also be surprised to know that I'm a multiple U.S. Figure Skating gold medalist, Canadian ice dance medalist, professional coach, and American Ice Theater certified choreographer who's been skating since eight-years-old.
