About Me


I’m Jean-Marie. I love photography and I started this blog for my photo a day project in 2011 and have decided to continue it with fun personal (and professional) photography challenges.

Why did I start this blog? Well, for starters, it was a great way to share my 365 project and keep pushing. A photo a day, every day, for 365 days is quite a challenge. The support was wonderful! I’ve also found that it’s kind of fun, pushing myself outside of my regular portrait work. I thought this would be a great avenue to share those photos.

I currently live in New Hampshire and my “day job” is as a professional in the lean and continuous improvement practices. I’ve lived in North Carolina and Texas after attending college in Indiana and growing up in Michigan. I really love to travel (both domestically and internationally), so I hope to share some images from my upcoming adventures. I almost always have my camera with me, conspicuously hidden in my large purse. I tried going without it for a while, but I felt like I lost a major limb or something!

Feel free to check out my regular portrait website at http://www.detcherphotography.com or email me at jeanmarie[at]detcherphotography.com. Lastly, you can find me on the ever popular Facebook. Please “like” Detcher Photography! Also, I’d love to hear your comments on my photos that I post! Don’t forget to sign up for an email reminder on the home page that will send you a quick note about updates.

Thanks for visiting!

    I don’t know if you’ve noticed it or not, but your work is Kicking! I’m going to go back through it–But What’s Next? Wow!

    • Thank YOU! Some days are planned…some days just kind of happen. That’s the beauty of always having your camera with you. Stay tuned… there will be a fun adventure coming up in the fall.

    Congratulations on being Freshly Pressed! Your work is beautiful. I’ve got links to other 365 photo challenges on my blog – if you don’t mind, I’d like to put yours in the side bar also.

    I’m doing a 365 photo challenge, but my blog is a 365 challenge of the stories of my life based on randomly chosen words. The photos on my blog are a combination of both new and old.

    I have followed your blog, I will definitely comment on every day in photos that you post. I’ve seen your website, wow .. very interesting. Amazing Portraits, wonderful pictures. If the future you are planning travel to Indonesia, do not forget to contact me.

    • Thank you Didex, I have looked at yours as well and I just love the insight you provide into the culture in the areas you’re in. Your photos are wonderful. Indonesia is most certainly on my travel list. This year I have a pretty big trip planned that I’m SO excited about … I’ll reveal where when I return. 🙂 When I finally get to Indonesia, I’ll definitely let you know!
