Tracy Hopkins/Photographer

Natural, beautiful, and classic with an editorial flare… this is my goal for each and every client. Natural makeup and earthy settings combine into feminine romantic portraits while texture and simplicity create masculine classic images.  Shabby Jack Photography specializes in adult portraiture (seniors, fashion, boudoir, bridal, engagement and head shots).  I do not photograph groups, children or families.

My Background:

My career started as a photographic artist/retoucher for other photographers, but in 2011 I decided to start shooting my own images.  I have had the opportunity to attend workshops and train with numerous industry icons including fashion photographer Emily Soto.  In 2016, I had the privilege of spending two days training one-on-one with the amazing Pratik Naik of Solstice Retouch at the Shabby Jack studio.

My work has graced the cover of Lemonade & Lenses, placed and won in various competitions,  and merited 3 times at the prestigous PPA International Photographic Competition…..including having an image selected for publication in the 2014 “Showcase” book by Marathon Press.  See More: Shabby Jack Photography “in the press”.

 

So… Who is Jack??

My photography journey began with my kids (triplets plus one), so I wanted them to be a part of my business and my business name. Behold J-A-C-K… Jadon, Addison, Cody and Kaylee.

Now, {Shabby} is defined in the urban dictionary as being ‘slightly worn from being over-loved’, so Shabby Jack seemed perfect given I tend to over love my kids and photography. But also, when I think of shabby I think comfortable and homey, like a favorite worn blanket or an old pair of blue jeans. I also think chic.. boutique.. tasteful. I want clients to feel at home and comfortable and walk away with nothing less than a first class experience.

For me, photography is just a passion and activity I love and your new faces are what keep it exciting and fresh.
