Note From Jess
Thank you so much for visiting!
Farther down the page you’ll find a fancy “about us” description where I describe myself as a photographic artist. (I like the description so I’m holding on to it!)
However, more than anything I’m a fellow human doing my best to contribute to the world and share my passions – art, nature, and photography.
Personal & Professional
A little about me – I’m a Space Force wife and mom to an awesome 11-year-old son. We have a fun-loving Shih-Tzu and Miniature Schnauzer mix at home, Hot Dog, and a sweet, soft cat, Figgy. In my free time, I LOVE to travel, run, read, and take pictures.
Professionally, I have a digital marketing background, a bachelor’s in communications, and a master’s in sustainability leadership.
What I’m Working On
For now, I am working on serving you through this website and building an international parks directory and interactive natural wonders map at RealParks.com. Also, we received orders to central California in early 2021 so we just finished moving across the country from Florida to California. It’s a bit of an exciting, wild time around our house. 🙂
I think that about sums it all up! However, the biggest thing I want you to know is that I care, and I will always do my best to help you in any way I can. If you have any questions, please drop me a line. Thank you for visiting!
Meet the Photographer
Jessica Lerner is an American photographer whose body of work explores her love affair with the ocean and nature. Her images seek to capture the whispers of a salty breeze, the awe of glorious coastal sunrises and sunsets, and the tranquility of cool ocean waves lapping at your ankles.
Jessica was born in Florida in 1983 and quickly discovered she is a thalassophile, a lover of the ocean. Over thirty years later, she noticed she is magnetically drawn to the skyline while running the beach and observing our incredible sunrises and sunsets.
Capturing the overwhelming beauty, the feeling of being in paradise on earth, became a desire she could no longer resist. Soon, the pictures began pouring out of her and have not stopped since.
She is delighted and humbled to share the coastal beauty of California and Florida with you through her photographic art.
Jessica is also incredibly passionate about preserving the beauty of nature and our coastlines for future generations. A portion of all profits is donated to ocean cleanup efforts.
