Frozen Sentiments was founded by Kuria and Melanie Jorissen when Kuria graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Photography. Daniel (the other half of the power couple) came in a bit later to be the tech wizard and second shooter.
We are all about having fun and making everyone feel comfortable being themselves in front of the camera. We love everything nerdy; board games, reading, history, anime, manga, cosplay, art, crafts, music, sci-fi, fantasy; you name it.
The three of us are Frozen Sentiments and we have more passions and interests than we can handle, so we are always learning new techniques and skills, and making new connections with people from all walks of life!
I’m the founder and lead photographer! I went to the Art Institute and graduated with a BFA in photography my thesis was on what’s called Astrophotography. My favorite pastime is to read art books and sketch in my travel journal. I’m artsy, nerdy, and have a large collection of working antique cameras.
I joined in later, but it was inevitable, being Kuria’s boyfriend. I’m the crazy web designer/developer, IT, secondary shooter, assistant, resident expert on everything nerdy; the titles go on. I love everything gaming from console to tabletop RPGs. Feel free to talk to me about anything that falls under nerdom from animation and D&D to particle physics and my love for folk metal \m/. If you need to find me at a crowded event, just look for the neon green hair!
I have been in the art business for many years so when my daughter asked if I’d join her team I, of course, said yes. I am the on-site graphic designer and main contact at Frozen Sentiments. My pastime is reading fantasy novels and any artform I can get my hands on. From the ancient art of paper quilling to encaustics, I love everything artsy!
