Freelance: Graduation Shoots

freelance

The past week and a half in Oklahoma has been totally devoted to my freelance work. For those who don’t know, I began freelancing back in college with the school newspaper. Before I graduated I was freelance writing for an award-winning magazine and an annual report. Today, I write features focusing mainly on granting and personal profiles. I also am a curator and tastemaker over at Brit + Co. Both are paying’ gigs (the best kind) but extremely different in content, workflow and bottom line.

Writing is my bread and butter, my passion, my expertise. But, surprisingly, my freelance design and photog gigs are growing almost faster than I can keep up. I’m making spreadsheets to track my workflow, firing out emails, sending quotes and client proofs, on the phone with printers and cashin’ checks left and right.

It’s a great feeling. I love the autonomy of freelance work. I love that I can travel, interact one-on-one with people, tour new places and experience new things and be the artist I always dreamed of being. It’s an ever-changing job, ever-changing title. I’m wearing a lot of hats. But it’s really fulfilling work. Plus, I thrive working on my own time, doing new things, breaking molds, making mistakes and learning and growing and grooving to the beat of my own drum.

RULES I wanted to share with you some of my work from the past week. Enjoy! Interested in working with me? Feel free to reach out…On Twitter, Facebook, Insta or email me at jesswcreative@gmail.com

Randi is a former classmate at OSU and blog reader. She was sweet enough to ask me to take some pics and design her graduation announcements. Congrats, Randi!
