Jess Zoerb is a stay at home mother and a professional portrait photographer.

Upon moving to Moose Jaw in 2008, Jess started her photography business, Ruby Blue Photography. Specializing in environmental portraits & weddings, it has grown to be a reputable business in Moose Jaw.

Since the birth of her firstborn, however, a shift of focus in her photography has taken place, her family taking center stage in her work. With two young children at ages 2 & 4, and another on the way, she has made the decision to take a break from her business to devote herself as a stay-at-home mom to her fullest potential.

Don’t let this mislead you; the camera is never put away! She has taken this opportunity to introduce a new challenge for herself – to provide her children with a collection of images illustrating their every day lives as they grow, their relationships with one another & their surroundings, while capturing their personalities on camera. This approach challenges her to find the best light in a given situation, sometimes sacrificing the technical side to capture the moment, the candid emotion in that ever-changing situation. Finding new challenges to strive for keeps the passion alive in photography for Jess.

Special note: All images were taken hand held with either a Nikon D610 or Nikon D300s camera in natural light.
