A Chat with Jake Jacobson Photography
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
It’s all about connecting with our clients to create unique, fun, irreverent family portraits. No stuffy studio backdrops—we get out into the beautiful places that are the heart of South Florida! You will end up with beautiful portraits that you will want to display and cherish for years to come.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I have been a hobbyist photographer for years, and in March 2014 I made the leap to quit my “day job” and go pro! My passion is connecting with clients to capture unique, real-life moments as artistic images. Everyone has a family doctor or dentist, I want to be your “family photographer”!
What do you love most about your job?
I love connecting—really connecting—with my clients to bring out their best. Seeing their reactions: smiles, gasps, and even tears of joy, when they come to view their portraits is the greatest feeling. I love knowing that I have helped to create art that they can cherish for years to come.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
During a visit to see my wife’s brother, I took some portraits of him. When he passed away a few months later, I sent his wife a framed 16”x20” of my favorite shot. She called me, in tears, to thank me and say that I had captured his true essence. I was so happy to know that I gave her some comfort.
