CREATIVE & EMOTIVE

"I love how easy-going Jenn is! And I really appreciated the time she spent with me before our shoot, helping me plan - that helped me feel less nervous about our shoot.  Once I got to the studio, my nervousness went away and we both did what we do best! It was awesome!"

"Jenn and I talked about the look I wanted before our shoot.  She made sure to have me bring pose ideas, and she had a list of ideas too.  In my wildest dreams I never expected to feel so creative and have so much fun, it was awesome!  The pictures we created were nothing like we get from our dance studio photographer, and my shoot wasn't rushed (like it is in the dance studio).  I know I won't be dancing in college or professionally, so I really appreciate being able to celebrate these final years with beautiful, artistic pictures.  They make me feel proud when I look at them."

PRINTS & PRODUCT DETAILS

Thinking back on our experience with Jenn, once my daughter's photoshoot started and I saw Jenn coach her into pose after pose, I realized I had found someone with a true gift for working with girls of ALL sizes, not just lean young women. 

My fuller-figured daughter kept telling me over and over, "I just don't want to look FAT in my pictures!"  She was so nervous that she would hate the whole experience, hate how she looked, but Jenn reassured her that she would coach her every step of the way, and she did!!! 

My daughter ended up LOVING her senior pictures and I'm telling you right now, it was a tremendous confidence boost for her!  To see my daughter's transformation from worrying about her body image to truly seeing her own beauty was priceless.

Thank you very much for all of your hard work with Emma’s pictures. You nailed it, Jenn! I never told you before her shoot, but she has a very poor self-image. Before we started this process she was really dreading having senior pictures taken.

I was hoping to use this experience as a bit of a self confidence boost for her and you 100% accomplished that for her.

Thank you for working so well with her and all of your prep & planning advice was perfect!  We couldn't appreciate you more. xo

BEAUTIFUL &
PHOTOGENIC!"

"Emma never felt more

Emma's mom

Watching the two of you work together, I just can't even put words to it.  It was joy and awe.   I saw a confidence surface in my daughter that brought tears to my eyes. 

And I saw you both work together to create this timeless memory for her, commemorating such a huge milestone that I know we'll both cherish forever!  How on earth do you quantify that?! 

Jenn, we adore you. THANK YOU for telling Kelsey's story so poignantly in pictures, especially before she goes off to school (tear-fest!).

looking at them!"

"We can't stop

Kelsey's mom

My experience with Jenn was unbelievably perfect.  We mapped out my whole shoot during our first planning meeting, which really helped me feel way less stressed knowing exactly what to expect and what to plan for!

During my shoot, she made me feel confident, beautiful, and she had the best sound effects while telling me how to pose, which completely helped keep things fun!  We were both cracking up, she made everything so easy!

I definitely recommend Jenn!!! I love my pictures - she is amazing!!!

perfect!"

"Unbelievably

LAUREN

Jennifer is absolutely fantastic to work with. She is so creative and insightful with her photographs- they are works of art. She really thinks outside the box to give you one of a kind photos and is so easy to work with.

She understands this generation of kids and they feel totally comfortable and at ease working with her.

She really is the best photographer I have ever worked with. Her passion, vision and energy is contagious - she really is amazing!!!!!!!

EXACTLY WHAT
WE WANTED?"

"How did you know

Julianne's mom

I did my senior pictures with Jenn during our family's vacation to Fort Myers Beach.  I really wanted something different.

Since I wanted a tropical look, Jenn suggested several of her favorite locations.  She helped us plan outfits for each location, giving color & style suggestions, which was a huge relief to me and my mom.  She basically mapped out my entire shoot, starting in her studio then outdoors - she made sure I got the tropical look I wanted plus some beach shots.  But my favorites, by far, were our studio shots.  Ask for the tulle skirts - you won't regret it!!!  It was an unforgettable way to start my senior year!!

FEEL BEAUTIFUL"

"Jenn made me

Meet Jenn

I BELIEVE IN MEMORIES AND MOMENTS AND ALL THE TINY UNFORGETTABLE THINGS THAT HAPPEN IN BETWEEN.

WHEN PEOPLE REMEMBER ME, I WANT THEM TO SAY,
HOLY CRAP, SHE LIVED OUT LOUD.  

BECAUSE, I BELIEVE THIS IS OUR ONE CHANCE TO LIVE COMPLETELY, TO SPRINT NOT WALK TOWARDS OUR PASSIONS, TO LOVE FIERCELY, AND TO FIND GRATITUDE EVERY DAY.

MOST OF ALL, I HONESTLY, FURIOUSLY LOVE WHAT I DO.

"I could tell from the photoshoot that we were going to LOVE Maddie's photos, but I had no idea just how much. I would do this for my daughter 100 more times if I could.  SUCH a memorable and extraordinary experience for her."
