Hey there friend!

Welcome to my happy place.

I’m Jenny and I love coffee, long trail runs, and cool evenings spent on the patio with the ones I love. I believe photos should be a part of every home and can remind us even on the hard days just how much good we have. I believe in living your story and telling it with photos.

As a mom you are pulled in a million different directions and have a to-do list a mile long, but there’s one thing that every mom knows- the days with little ones are long but the years fly by. Babies don’t keep and you know that THESE are the moments you want to treasure and remember. These are the moments in the midst of all the craziness that you want documented and photographed so that you can have it as beautiful art to adorn your home and remind you of all the beauty you’re surrounded by daily. Getting to be a part of creating art that tells your story is what I am all about.

Whether it’s creating a beautiful album of your family session, helping you pick out the perfect image to have put on canvas, or designing a gorgeous gallery wall of fine art prints and custom frames, it is my desire to help you create images that can be displayed as gorgeous art in your home for years to come.

I am an on location, natural light photographer specializing in lifestyle portraits. Basically, all that means is I use  natural  light and do your session in beautiful outdoor locations (or occasionally in the beauty of your own home).  Lifestyle basically means that rather than the traditional everyone stand still, look at the camera and smile poses, I capture you and your family in action- having fun together, laughing, smiling, snuggling and just being you!

I LOVE making the session all about you and fitting your family and highlighting who YOU are! During the session I try to get a lot of candid shots of you guys being you and having fun together- tickling, laughing, hugging.

Because I believe that your photos were not meant to live on your hard drive or in the cloud but should be displayed and enjoyed daily, I specialize in walking you through the custom photography process including deciding which images to order and how to display them.

I offer a range of products from fine art prints, canvases (my favorite!), custom photo albums, and custom frames. I do offer digital files as well but I encourage you to see these as a backup to the prints and artwork that adorn your walls. You can find out more about investing in these heirloom products here.

I am a vendor for Organic Bloom Frames, giving you access to these gorgeous custom made and painted frames.

You may be more familiar with large photography franchises similar to what you would find at your local mall. What I offer is a boutique photography experience centered around you- capturing memories of your story and turning it into beautiful art. I spend hours of time investing in each family or individual I photograph helping to craft the perfect session for them and then creating those images and presenting them during the reveal session where I help them select the perfect images to adorn their walls. Because this promise requires a significant amount of time and I want each family to have a unique and individualized experience I only book a limited number of sessions and typically book them several weeks to months in advance.

At the beginning of each season I release all of the dates that I have available for that season. These dates are released first to my Insiders who get first access to available session dates as well as exclusive Insider pricing!  I love new faces but those on my Insider list get first priority.

  • I am passionate in my belief that each of us has a story and that story should be told and documented with photos. While I love getting to tell your story through the photos I take during a session, I know that most of your story unfolds in your home and day to day life- not in front of my camera.
  • With that in mind, I’ve created several different ways to help YOU take better photos to help document your days and tell your story in photos!
