About the Photographer

I have always been a creative person.  From photography, to writing, to art, anything that I can create I love.  I've worked my whole life towards a career that allows me to create.  Photography is just one piece of that creative puzzle.  I wanted to photograph animals for National Geographic when I was younger, and heck maybe I still will!  I received a Bachelor's degree in Creative Writing in 2018.  


I live in Waterville, Maine, but I grew up in the small town of Jackman, Maine (hence why there is no travel fee for Jackman).  I love being in the outdoors, hunting, fishing, snowmobiling, hiking, camping, etc.  Most of my inspiration came from underneath the sky, with no civilization in sight.


I'm a person full of laughter and anxiety and am guaranteed to make you laugh at any point in time.  I'm also extremely clumsy, so we are bound to have a laugh during a shoot!​  

To visit the other half of my creative business endeavors and to check out my writing!  I've got so much more to offer!

About the Business

Nova Jarvis Photography started in early 2014 with a shoot with my cousin Audrey.  The next few years were filled with new cameras, building a portfolio, and building a small batch of clients.


I started photography when I was young.  I snapped photos of squirrels, the sky, trees, rocks, puddles, and anything I could point a camera at, I snapped.  I took a photography class in high school and loved watching myself improve.  I had a horrible little camera, nothing compared to the expensive ones that my classmates walked in with, but I was determined to prove myself to the class.  I tried different angles and was complimented on how I saw the world differently than the others.  I've kept that philosophy throughout the years.


2019 was my first year as a business!  It still has a long way to go, but each month builds upon the last.
