Meet Jenn and matias
We’re passionate about doing more than merely surviving, and strive for adventure. Jenn’s brain moves faster than she can keep up, and somehow always has dirt under her nails. Matias likes to be organized and structured, but holds an affinity for humor and laughter.
Their mantra is to live with purpose, and radically accept what we truly have no control in. "Inspirare" is Latin, meaning "to breathe life into," and they harness this concept not only through their work, but in their personal lives. Jenn is constantly pushing herself creatively, and enjoys learning new in-camera effects, while Matias assists behind-scene and is mastering the editing process. When they can produce a natural whimsical, dreamy, abstract twist on a photo, they get really excited.
Jenn was lucky enough to have been born and raised in the PNW, and is immensely proud to call Seattle her home. When she’s not creating life memories with her husband Matias, and her son Foster, or romping around with her 60-lb lap-dog Atreyu, you can find her wandering the coast and trails, hiking, kayaking, exploring, and camping as she photographs her journeys.
Matias was born and raised in Córdoba, Argentina, and has been lucky enough to be able to call Seattle his home as well. Working remotely as a Scrum Master gives him the opportunity to utilize what would be commuting time, to work creatively, as partners. When Matias isn’t behind the computer, he enjoys cooking, taking walks, and spending time with family.
Jenn’s always had a deep rooted desire to document moments and holds fond memories snapping shots of everything when she was a child, with any kind of camera she could get her fingers on; from trips to Yellowstone, to Crater Lake. She found peace in viewing life through a lens - and continue to live a life of adventure, with a camera in her hand.
She began photographing professionally in 2011, and began photography full time in 2014. In 2016 she built studio space in Bothell, which consequently burnt down in a devastating fire; following this she took nearly three years to regroup before taking on steady new work and re-building the business with her partner, and husband, Matias. Combined with photography skills, the two now offer graphic design, as well as web-customization, as they share their time between Washington state and Argentina.
Now in our 9th professional year, we are humbled and cannot imagine doing anything else!
We dream of traveling the world, publishing a book, creating family, flying planes and parasails, as we build our business together.
We’re thankful to have your interest, and share our experiences atop mountains, across waters, and from the comfort of the lens, as we all journey through this life together. Lest we forget, it's the in-between moments that's the stuff that really matters.
