I'm Jina Morgese, a Sarasota native with a BFA from Ringling College of Art and Design.

I'm a relaxed, natural light photographer of stories and lover of traveling and ethical food! By nature I'm relaxed, obsessed with noticing the little things and finding calm in the chaos.

I have photographed over 100 adventures with families from all over the country who visit my beautiful hometown, voted #1 Beach in the U.S.

In the past 2 years, Ember & Earth Photography has grown to capture the nuances of personalities, natural light, and composition with a relaxed style. 

The most important thing to me is ensuring my families have a wonderful journey with me and their expectations are exceeded.


Years from now, I want you to look back at your portraits and remember when they were this little. These are the portraits to capture your whole heart.

My aim is to document and create beautiful photos that celebrate the truth of your family, organic and real. 

If you are after images that celebrate love and show a genuine connection, then you are in the right place.


Planning a wedding is wonderful, overwhelming, and most of all exciting. You get to plan a day to celebrate the love for eachother with all of your favorite people.

I am always there, unobtrusive and searching for those moments that matter.

Your photos should be your authetic selves, natural, emotional and a reflection of your day.

Looking back on your photos, you will remember the feelings you felt that day and the love between you and that special person.


With a root and education in commercial photography, I want to convey with my images the the story of food in details.

Being keenly aware of the narrative, I love to elevate the natural beauty of each dish and reflect the philosophy that food is the key to health, community, and living a good life.

I have photographed local companies such as The Social Eatery & Bar, Sarah Fresh Juice, Michaels on East, Keva Juice, The Oaks Club, Munchies 420, Pride of The South BBQ, Cannons Steakhouse, The Founders Club, McCavarer & Moser, and Menchies.
