Hi, I'm LaShawnda Jones

I’m an observer who enjoys documenting my observations in words and images. This site represents a coming together of the themes I am most drawn to.

As an independent author, publisher and photographer for Harvest Life, my work focuses on women, spiritual growth, social justice and the beauty of every day life wherever I am.

I’ve been photographing demonstrations, marches and protests since December 2014, but have been capturing daily life through a lens since 1986.

Stages of growth

Photo shoot in Central Park, NYC. Photo by Lyndia Alvarez.

My first camera was a Vivitar 110, a gift from my mom when I was ten. For most of my life, I have had a camera in people’s faces.

My first international trip was in 1993 to the Yucatán Peninsula, Mexico. I didn’t know it then, but it was the beginning of a love for photographing my travel. That first trip produced some great images of Chichen-Itza, an ancient Mayan Pyramid site.

In 2014, I marched for the first time and photographed my first protest. My resistance work is heavily sign based and focuses on the diversity within the crowds. 

In 2018, I began hiring my out my services. I am available for  head shots, portraits, real estate listings and events nationally.  Please contact me (

During the 2020 #Coronavirus #quarantine, I expanded to offering video tours of residential real estate listings. Learning to edit my own video footage has been a wonderful way to upskill for more opportunities.
