lake almanor portrait

Welcome to my collection. My name is Jessica Murgia-Compton and I am a portrait photographer located in Westwood of Northern California. As a transplant to the Lake Almanor area from Chico, CA, I've been captivated by the beauty of my surroundings and can often be found in the woods scouting unique and remote locations. I like to blend adventure with love and connection, and it shows in my artwork. 

My style can be described as "organic, warm, and earthy". I draw inspiration from the gorgeous wooded and mountain meadow areas that surround us. It is immensely fulfilling to blend my love of nature with my love of people. When you choose me as your photographer, you can expect to come out and connect with me. It gets even sweeter when your goal is to connect with your child(ren) or another loved one. That’s when my efforts are concentrated on creating images that display your love, affection, and connection.

My goal with any session is to create unique and timeless portraits. It is my belief that portraits are not just about documenting the moment, but creating a soulful experience that transcends the image itself. They give you a tangible memory to hang on to and share as well as PRESERVE life in its current season.

I pour love into each session and it takes time to create art. Creative quality is an important feature to my work and it requires a concentration of my efforts. Photography is my passion and my favorite creative outlet. But please keep in mind that I have two young children at home and also own and operate The Wire Wizard, an electrical contracting company in the area. My time and talent are valuable to me and my family.

Appointments are limited, so please don't hesitate to contact me about questions or scheduling. You can reach me at 530.680.6055 or by email at jmcphotographyca@gmail.com.

Come connect and create with me. Prepare yourself for an adventure and in the process, you will discover and learn something about yourself. I know I always do.
