MEET JESS LEIGH
I am a wandering person by nature. I remember days that my mom woke my brothers and I up in the morning and said, “get dressed! We’re going on a trip!” That spirited nature stuck with me and now as an adult, I find myself in new and awe inspiring locations often. My daughter will live with the same excitement as I did when my mom took me travelling as a child and I always hope to spark that interest in my friends and clients. We have so much to see on this Earth and a very short time here. See as much as you can, breathe in that mountain air and swim in new waters. You won’t regret it.
Some other interesting stuff about me:
HUGE ANIMAL LOVER. I am buying a bigger property so that I can get more pets. Please don’t tell my partner!
I am an ice cream lover and even in those -40 Canadian winters, I will travel out of my warm house to get some soft serve.
I read … a lot. Books are the best escape when you can’t escape in real life (because commitments and stuff)
I am playful, kind, and gentle. I went to school to be a social worker, then a police officer and now I am a photographer. I live and breathe art.
Based in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
