About Me

I am an architect, and before having my son, I worked at an international firm specializing in commercial office building.  After having my son, I realized that I needed more flexibility & freedom than corporate architecture offered.  In 2013, I started my design firm: J Benedict Architecture and Design.  I have been able to expand my services from straight architectural design to marketing, branding, website design and portrait photography, a longtime passion of mine.

The arrival of my son provided the impetus to switch the focus of my lens to children, couples, and families, and I have loved exploring the softer side of portrait photography.  At J. Benedict Photography, I bring my eye for design composition and light to the world of lifestyle photography.
