Jessica Higueras, Photographer
Jessica was born in Lima, Peru. Before discovering the world of photography, you could tell Jessica had a special sensitivity for being creative, that kind of creativity that also raised many eyebrows more than one time.
After living in Guatemala and Mexico for a couple of years, she crossed the world to settle in New Zealand. In 2001 while living in Wellington, she studied Photography at The Photo School, graduating with honours and awarded for the best portfolio.
Jessica’s passion and dedication for photography is opening her doors very quickly. She specializes in Portrait, Fashion and Wedding photography. She has won several awards since she started her business, including multiple Kodak Gold Awards and NZIPP Iris Awards.
Capturing the best of people’s expressions in a natural way and with a fashion forward influence are very important features of Jessica’s style. Her Peruvian roots are constantly present to add that touch of fun when directing and colour when retouching that have made her artistic photos win several awards. Her patience and commitment to get the best picture, can only be driven by a real passion for her career.
Jessica now lives in Auckland and is the mother of two lovely kids: Vasco and Vera.
