We are a family owned and operated photography company out of Colfax California. Jae and Holly got their first camera to document moments with their son and it slowly became an obsession that blossomed into a career.
A Sign Of Life has grown a lot in the past few years. We've gone from taking photos of friends and families, to taking photos at red carpet events. We plan to keep growing and make this our life!
Now servicing Placer County, Nevada County and Sacramento County!
James was born in Santa Cruz, CA. He spent his early years relaxing on the beach, going to the local amusement park or doing something artistic (drawing, painting, sculpting or building).
When he was 12 he moved to Michigan where he created a rock band and practiced music until his band broke up when he was 19. Artistic expression has always been a way of life, and photography is his newest and most fulfilling form.
Holly was born in Marine City, MI. She spent her childhood with friends and family, as the weird and very expressive child. Any time she was able to create something to stand out from the crowd she was sure to take it. Writing, drawing, reading, and painting have always been past time favorites. As an adult she began traveling and experiencing a new and beautiful world that she previously knew nothing of, opening her up to all kinds of new possibilities.
She began taking portraits of friends and family as a teenager and has been passionate about it ever since.
