Hello! I’m Jacqueline
When I was young
My grandfather used to take photographs of my family and I hated posing for them. I wondered what the point of all these photographs was. Then, I realised he wanted to capture memories of us because we mattered so much to him.
Photography became a love language for me
I started taking pictures because I too wanted to remember people I loved and who love me.
My favourite photograph is
A picture of my mum and brother during a time when she was going through chemotherapy. It was the first time she saw my brother’s full-back tattoo and it was the first time he saw her without her wig.
People and relationships move me
Photography has become a way of life for me because I want to help others capture memories of their meaningful relationships too. Photographs remind people of the love and goodness in their lives. After all, are relationships not built upon shared memories?
I like to keep it real in photographs
The best photographs are taken when people are comfortable and just being themselves. That’s why, I aim to be discrete and discerning when taking pictures. I particularly enjoy photography sessions in people’s homes - it’s a personal space where they truly are at ease.
When I’m not taking pictures
I am still investing in relationships, doing life with my favourite people - walking alongside them and listening to them. And often, I photograph them too. After all, photography is always secondary to living.
