Sheree and Jessica are sisters from the Denver, Colorado area.
Sheree has been interested in photography since her high school days. Before the days of digital, she was exposed to working in traditional darkrooms. She's always loved portrait work and the way it allows her to interact with others. Although she has a strong understanding of traditional portrait techniques, Sheree routinely discards those guidelines in favor of creativity. A picture she took of her children is in the National Library of Photography.
Jessica has always had a passion for photography and film, and graduated from Walla Walla University with a Bachelor's degree in mass communication media. Like Sheree, she favors a more creative style for her photos and her favorite projects while in school were focused around portrait photography. Jessica has done a few portrait sessions as well as nature photography since graduation.
JS McToya Photographic images was founded by Sheree and her husband, Joe in 2008, and Jessica joined the crew at the end of 2018.
Usually both will attend shoots and at times they are simultaneously taking pictures. Jessica’s technical knowledge of lighting and post processing techniques, combined with Sheree's creativity and disregard for tradition make for a unique pairing. Because of this balance they are able to provide their clients with a variety of both traditional and original looking images to choose from.
