Jean Glagola

Jean is the founder and owner of Pearlescent Photo, Pearlescent Boudoir Photography and Ohio Home Pix. She fell in love with photography in High School and pursued her craft further at Jersey City State College (now New Jersey University). Pearlescent Photo began in 2014 specializing in boudoir and women, but quickly grew to include all genres of photography (except weddings). Pearlescent Photo believes a photo shoot is far more than photographs. It is a personalized experience that results in not only portraits but fond memories.


“I have always had a passion for capturing moments on film—and that's back when there was still film in cameras! I received my real camera body and lenses when I was in high school & hardly ever went anywhere without them. I then attended Jersey City State for fine art photography & worked in a portrait studio as a photographer for years until my children arrived and I became a full-time Mom. My babies provided me with constant subject matter and my camera remained a constant companion. So much has changed with digital photography but the passion & joy in capturing life's most precious moments remains timeless.”

—Jean Glagola, Founder & Owner of Pearlescent Photo
