Vaera Journeys

Meet The Ladies

Testimonials from past attendees!

Jessica Maxwell

Each Vaera Journey includes a dedicated photographer who will follow the adventures along with us, making sure you never have to worry about grabbing the perfect shot. All of the candid shots are included, but if you’d like to add on a personal photo shoot for professional headshots, or just for fun, you can add that on when you sign up for the retreat. Not ready to decide? You can also add it on anytime during the retreat. Jessica will join us as our photographer for our 2019 retreat. You can see her work here.

Jessica is an Editor for an online magazine and a freelance writer and photographer currently in Ohio raising a rowdy little boy and traveling at every opportunity.  When she was asked to join Vaera Journeys as the photographer she was thrilled. Aside from loving the opportunity to capture pictures it was equally if not more amazing to meet a group of inspiring and talented women.  It really made her want to push her career to the next level. She is also anxiously awaiting the retreat next year.
