Let's Get Reacquainted!

Hi, if you're new around here - I'm Jasmine Martin (you may have known me before as Jasmine White) and I have been a professional photographer for 12+ years! From 2012 to 2021 I specialized in weddings and engagements. After some major life changes, I took a year off from photography to regroup/rebrand and now I'm back and ready to be YOUR go-to portrait photographer!


About My Time Off:

After 10+ years of being a full time wedding photographer (and loving it), I found that I had started to get tired and it was really taking a toll on my body - weddings are a lot of hard work, long days, and carrying heavy equipment.


While I loved shooting weddings, down to every little detail - I knew it was time for a change.


Around the time I found myself realizing that I was going to need a change of genre in my photography business, I also started going through a lot of personal life trials. While going through a very unexpected divorce and adjusting to my new life as a single mom, I took the year off to focus on rebuilding my personal life.


During my time off I focused on myself, my child, and a lot of therapy. In March 2021 I was invited to church (by a really cute guy), it took me weeks to get up the nerve to accept the invitation. However, in April I went to church for the first time, in the following weeks I would meet the love of my life (in personal finally) and find Jesus.

Jarod & Jasmine - June 18th, 2021 on their farm in Princeton, WV on the day they eloped in a private ceremony.

My entire life dramatically changed in a matter of weeks/months! I went from being a newly divorced, single momma, who didn't even know if I believed in God ... to experiencing love in a way I never knew existed - from an amazing man and a gracious God.


On June 18th, 2021 I got remarried to the most incredible human and everything I had went through made 1000% sense!


I am so thankful for every fire, trial, and tribulation that brought me to this exact place in my life. God is so, so good. "He makes beauty from ashes" has never made more sense than it does to describe this season of my life.



Let's Talk About RIGHT NOW!

Here we are, almost a year later and we've also went through a lot of changes in that year! Jarod quit his job, of 20 years, as a manager of a local grocery chain (where he was a butcher) and started a full-time auto detailing business (Martin Detailing). I am finally ready to dive into photography again, but now specializing in portraits! I will be shooting with families, seniors, children, entrepreneurs, couples, pets, etc.


It's 100% safe to say if you knew me more than a year ago, you don't know me now. Since 2020 I have had so much self-growth and am so thankful for where I am now (personally, professionally, and just in life in general).


With that being said, I'd love to have the opportunity to reintroduce myself and be your go-to portrait photographer to capture your most important life moments.


We're so excited for where our life is and where it's going. Our family is so, so blessed.


- Also, we can't end a personal blog update without showing you a picture of our perfect, smart, witty, sarcastic, ornery, energetic, 9 year old - Easton and our furbabies; Oakley & Harvey!


Life is good y'all!

xoxo,

Jasmine
