Hello! I’m Jessica, the photographer behind Lera Photography. I’m obsessed with beauty, specifically showing people the beauty they may miss on their own. In fact, my favorite thing about photography is making my clients feel amazing and glamorous, then giving them gorgeous images to show family and friends. I love knowing that they can see themselves a little better than they did before. I have high end tastes, I’m inspired by fine art and fashion, I’m constantly browsing fashion magazines, and I’m picky. No cheesy poses, tacky themes, or over-processing of your photographs. Only the best – fresh, young, but still classic, stuff that you can be proud to show your grandkids. I discovered my love for photography at a very young age in my home town of Raleigh, North Carolina, where I'm currently located. However that didn't keep me from searching and expanding my horizons. Throughout my high school and college career, I dabbled in so many different career choices (cosmetology, web & graphic design, clothing design & fashion styling, and interior design) and have spent years researching the connection between appearance and self-esteem. I bring all of this experience to the table every shoot - guaranteeing a session that is beautifully you; beautifully unique.
