Jael started photography during college at SDSU- photographing sessions for friends [with film!] between classes and other jobs. She then launched her full-time studio downtown Brookings when she graduated in 2006.
Since then, Jael has photographed her treasured clients, many of whom have become dear friends, all over the world, and was named one of the top 10 senior portrait artists in the country. Jael’s clothing store J.Ella Boutique with locations in Brookings and Sioux Falls is also a passion of hers, and she blends them by offering all portrait clients complimentary access to J.Ella clothing and accessories for any session.
Jael is passionate about faith, her hubby and two darling boys- working from home to spend the most time with them possible!
