BEHIND THE LENS

THIS PASSION ▲ THIS LOVE

My name is –you guessed it!– Molly Jane, but you can call me Molly for short.  I'm a San Francisco native based in the North Shore of Chicago, Illinois.  I'm a people-lover, animal-lover and adventure-seeker. My family and friends will tell you that I'm a free spirit – I have a serious case of wanderlust and a passport chalk full of stamps.  Pictures and stories of my personal travels, both domestic and international, can be found on my blog as well as on my facebook and instagram accounts.

Although I've always had a love for art, I didn't discover my talent for photography until post-college when I was cast on a television show for a major cable network.  Trotting the globe with elite industry professionals, I learned priceless technical and stylistic aspects of photography.  Soon thereafter, it became apparent that I not only had a keen interest in photography, but I had a flair for it, too!  

Fast forward several years later and I'm as passionate as ever about this craft.  With every click of the shutter, my aim is to compose vibrant portraits that engender emotion upon first sight and capture the true essence of the people and places I photograph.  I stop at nothing to get that "perfect shot", all the while having fun along the way.  It's this level of zeal, along with my creativity and gregariousness, that clients value most about me and the art that I create.
