MATERNITY

Stepping behind the camera is so incredibly fulfilling for me.  I get the chance to truly quench my creative side.  I am an artist, and I love every aspect of being a portrait photographer.
I love the relationships that are developed with clients.  I love watching your family grow and it's exciting seeing all those milestone changes first hand!
Having a photographer that your children and family have fun with can bring out the most incredible images that capture their true personalities.  I can not wait to meet you!

am so excited you're here.  As a mother to four beautiful children, my life beyond the camera is nothing short of fulfilling.  From sports schedules to running a full house, you can bet that there is never a dull moment.

Your fun, always smiling,

I'm jennifer!

Jen

I whole heartedly believe that my sole purpose on this earth was to be a mother to these four amazing humans (and to create incredible artwork).  I thank God everyday for blessing me with each one of them, and giving me the opportunity to spend my earth time with them.

Being the oldest of four, I am also so grateful for the relationships that I have with my siblings.  They are, hands down, my best friends.


family

I never turn down an invite for coffee & good wholesome conversation.
Communication is so good for the soul, whether you're the speaker or the listener.  Whether it be enjoying the sunrise on the front porch, or chatting with a friend at the local coffee shop, a nice hot cup of joe seems to make every situation seem a bit better.
I am also one that will stop and read coffee mugs at boutiques.  I have way too many to properly display, but I can remember the story as to where they've all come from!

coffee fanatic

Most evenings in summer, you will find me sitting around a fire, taking in all that I have been blessed with.
I find it incredibly peaceful to listen to our children telling their stories, with the crackling of the fire as their background music.
S'mores and cocktails are the perfect treat to finish out those busy summer days.

Absolutely amazing experience. I wouldn't have trusted anyone else this much with my newborn. Jennifer made us feel right at home in her studio and I enjoyed watching from behind the scenes. She really is a baby whisperer! Thank you again for such great memories!

Working with Jennifer truly was a dream. She is so remarkably talented and our photos turned out amazing. As a first time mom, things like taking your newborn out can be nerve-racking, but Jennifer made it so relaxed and comfortable. She didn't make me feel rushed or bad when E didn't want to go to sleep. She took her time and let E lead the appointment. 100/10 recommend and will be coming back with any future babies.

Jen was absolutely wonderful throughout the whole process of my session. She communicated well and sent me expectations of the session on her end and explained thoroughly what I should expect during it. She was also very accommodating. Doing a maternity session was definitely out of my comfort zone but she did everything she could to be sure I was comfortable, she made the session so much fun! She also made me feel glamorous and helped gain confidence. Would definitely recommend a maternity shoot at least once and there's no one better to book with than Jen!

Jennifer took newborn photos of my 2 week old daughter. She was so gentle and patient with her. My daughter was happy and comfortable during the entire shoot.
The studio is warm and inviting with a nursing rocker for breastfeeding moms. The photos were just beautiful! Jennifer was professional, friendly and promptly responsive to all communications. I am very satisfied; it was well worth the investment. I would highly recommend!

Jen is awesome at what she does! She was willing to reschedule a session when my 5 year old decided to not cooperate when we tried the first session. I love how all the pictures turned out and have gotten a ton of compliments!!!
