Jen and Jesse of Huntress Florals

“We met each other at transitional periods of our lives and happened to meet through floral design. We’re both from Pennsylvania and our friendship just kind of happened.

“Unemployment made me realize there is more to life than just paying bills. At the end of the day what I’m doing, I’m doing it for me. I don’t ever want to be the person who puts pressure on people, especially with style. Different strokes for different folks, but I want to share my passion…

“I’ve always been a creative person, I’ve just never tapped into it. And upon moving to California, I feel like the cap lifted off of my creativity! I use my blog as a creative outlet and also as a way to inspire people through my writing. If I somehow make their day better, I feel…

“I picked up my first camera and was so fucking excited—it was a Costco bundle XTi. Since then it was an everyday thing for me to shoot at school, things, and people. Photography didn’t take off until I got sick at 16 years old. I was diagnosed with cancer in August 20, 2008. The reason…
