Hello, I’m Jessica Hughes, owner of Pitties and Pieces Photography. My photography journey began early in middle school when I received my first digital camera. I started with school photos for the yearbooks, including sports, and other school events. I never go anywhere without my cameras. The zoo, the aquarium, family events, parks, you name it. I love to capture the day to day life of my own kids. I want them to look back and see all the things they did and enjoyed together, so they can show their own kids one day too.
I was born and raised in East Texas. My accent has gone away some, but some people can still hear it! After high school, I moved around the country a few times on different adventures. I came back and met my husband, Nick by just pure luck. We’ve been married for 5 years and have 2 wonderful children, Grayson and Garrett.
The ‘Pitties’ in the Pieces is because of our 2 wonderful dogs, Max and Daisy, who are pitbulls. They were my babies, before my real babies were born! Our life really is a ton of little pieces put together to make one big life!
I feel like every client becomes apart of the Pitties and Pieces family. Anytime someone wants a maternity shoot, an engagement, or even a pregnancy announcement, my emotions are all in for them. I know exactly how exciting those times are in each others lives. The emotions of getting engaged, married, a new baby; It always takes me back to my own emotions that I felt when those things happened in my life. For me, it’s a special feeling knowing you all will feel those feelings when you look back at those photos. It’s more then just a picture, its a memory.
