It All Began When I was 4 years old.

I know that sounds crazy, but it really goes back even earlier than that! My mom was always taking photos of me and our family. I was only 4 years old the first time I asked her for my own disposable camera.
Of course, she gave it to me.

I never stopped taking photos. I became obsessed with humanity— In middle school my dream job was "National Geographic Photographer" (don't worry, I haven't given up). 

I assisted photographing my first wedding by 14, and in 2012 I launched my first  photography company. But that's not the point of this story, because between now and then....

So much has changed.

After more than 10 years of photographing weddings and couples, and after years of coming into myself, I've learned a thing or two. I've learned about dedication to your loves and passions.
I've learned about human connection, and listening to your body as a practice of self love. And finally, I've learned a heck of a lot about travel and being your authentic self.

Now, I want to share my experience with you. 

My superpower is helping others see their best version of self.... the brave, authentic, and wildly in love person inside.

I believe I offer more than just photography. 

My goal is to really get to know and connect with YOU and become the vessel for us to create art together! Wether you're on a journey of self love, a story of adventure and exploration with your favorite human, or a wildly romantic get-away to celebrate your love and commitment to each other (or yourself!); I want to be your photographer. 

Because I've felt lost before; unsure of myself, emotionally blocked, and craving something more.  
But I've discovered the cure to fear: Always Jump.  And together, that's exactly what we'll do!

We all deserve to be wildly in love— with life, ourselves, our partner, and the world around us.

Because I've felt lost before; unsure of myself, emotionally blocked, and craving something more. But now, I choose to break my old patterns daily (which took a huge leap of faith), to be where I am today.

We all deserve to be wildly in love— with life, ourselves, our partner, and the world around us. 

I BELIEVE IN:

Honest communication, un-plugged days, being weird because its fun, spicy food, and — if its not a "Hell Yes" its a "Hell No".

I'm NOT ABOUT:

Negative self talk, fear based decisions, ghosting, and being someone you're not to fit in.

YOU CAN FIND ME:

Cooking every chance I get, camping with my partner, taking pottery class, and binging on podcasts.

daily rituals:

Deep breathing, hikes with my pups (+ partner), MUDWTR with extra Cacao, dance parties for one, and journaling.

"Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give."

Give back to the global community. . .

with every photo session.

I started J.J. Au'Clair to offer adventerous and empowering photography services that also supports our oceans, threatened species and the global community with whom we share this earth— connecting my deepest passions and skills for good.

Every year, I donate 15% of my profits to great causes. In 2019 and 2020, my couples and I helped to help build an orphanage, senior citizens home, and to help rebuild two schools located near Cuzco, Peru.
