Thanks for visiting our page! My name is Jessica Cardinal and my husband TJ and I own Cardinal Family Photography. We are a husband and wife team who share a passion for photography. I got my first DSLR camera, a Nikon D40 from TJ as a wedding gift (2009). When our second daughter was born TJ insisted that I take her newborn photos. They were not pretty, but hey, you have to start somewhere right?! Now several lenses and cameras later here we are. We now get to experience the joy of capturing your life moments. We are self-taught by means of countless hours of study online and keeping a camera with us at all times. We have taken a ridiculous amount of photos of our four children (Cadence-8, Clara-5, Cason-3, Calon-3).
This year has been another year of change for our family. After a year on maternity leave from teaching, I went back to teaching this year. It's hard to know how to balance my love of photography and teaching along with my family. For now, we will be taking photo sessions in the summer, but photo sessions during the school year will be taken on a very limited basis.
TJ is self-employed in his own construction company, Cardinali Custom Construction. We also help run Montage Ministries, a youth outreach in Massillon. As you can tell, we have our hands full (mainly with the four children part). We feel so blessed that God has given us the opportunity to do what we love.
