Hi there, I'm Jennifer. Thank you for visiting my website!
These days, I know it seems that everyone has a friend or relative who is a photographer. I believe that's because a lot of people like to be creative, and think photography is fun, and I agree that it is! It is also a lot of work, but I love the work too. From speaking with clients, planning their personalized session, making sure the clients enjoy the session as I capture beautiful images, and then all the post production work afterwards. I especially love helping the client put together their order of gorgeous wall art, albums, gift prints, and gift items. To me, it's more than just the physical aspect of serving my clients. I love to help people, and I love to help my clients create lasting memories for generations to come; preserving memories is important to me.
I was a little girl when my mother passed away, and then a teenager when my father passed away, and then there was just my sister and me, and she has passed since too. We never had professional portraits taken as a family, but I am grateful that both my parents enjoyed taking pictures. I have several old photo albums, and a box of photos to cherish. My mother's hand writing is on the back of many of the photos, and I can remember looking at them with her as a little girl. These photos are priceless to me.
One thing I say a lot is "print your photos", and I mean it. So many people take the risk of just leaving their photos on a CD, USB, computer, phone, or floating in a cloud, but they don't have physical prints or albums to look at. Their walls are not holding precious memories that they can enjoy looking at everyday. Holding a phone and looking at photos just doesn't give me the same warm feelings as snuggling with my son as we turn pages of beautiful curated albums. And someday, I will look at those same albums with my grandchildren, and our generations to follow will have the same beautiful experience.
I would love to help you honor and preserve your family memories.
