founder + designer

I’m Jessica, or Jessie Mary, as my hubby often calls me. Living in Haymarket, Virginia, with my husband Dan, our incredible growing up too quickly 11 year old daughter, our slightly wild child toddler, and three furry children.

I believe in living each moment of life to the fullest, whether that means appreciating quiet moments at home or exploring somewhere new. I think road trips are the best way to travel, and have visited 28 national parks while road tripping through the United States. I’m inspired and invigorated by nature, though in college, I swore I’d never live anywhere else but NYC… little did I know what was out there!

I’m also obsessed with visual presentation and technology..

I have a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts, a certificate in Multimedia Design, and ten years experience working in corporate Information Technology. In 2008, I had my first daughter and started my photography business on the side while staying home with her. After 8 years in business, I realized what I loved was the tech, web, and marketing part. In 2014, I started accepting web design clients and closed my photography business shortly after, to focus on what I enjoy most.

 

Using my unique industry experience and understanding of what it takes to run a successful small business, I will work with you to create a brand that is uniquely you, and implement it, bringing these ideas to life. One of my favorite parts about what I do is collaborating with other creatives, watching the concepts we envision come to life.

project assistant

Angel is an experienced photographer, based out of Maryland, and mom to four daughters. She joined Jessie Mary & Co in 2017, in addition to running her own business. Angel is my go to person for tasks from assigning dates on my calendar to optimizing all my images and keeping me on track with my projects. We've known each other for almost 10 years, so we have a long established communication and trust.

 

She's also a great resource on keeping me up to date on the photography industry, which is super important, since more than half of my clients are photographers.

"Jess gets it done. Period. For me, the biggest thing is that she doesn't let things fall through the cracks- she MAKES you follow through, which is one of the hardest parts of web design. Creating copy is hard, and Jess guides you through it. Jess and her team are organized, get-it-done machines, and I value that so much... plus the product you get is fantastic." -MK
