Hi! I’m Jennifer. I am a visual storyteller and a keeper of memories. I am also a mom of two adorable kids and wife to my best friend.
Grace, coffee and dry shampoo are essentials in my life, and you will always find me with some type of camera in my hand. I have loved photography since I was a child, burning through film and disposable cameras faster than my allowance could keep up. I had wanted to be a painter, capturing the beauty and light in the most magical way - and for me, my camera became my tool to do so.
I started my business back in 2010, and specialized in families and newborns. After becoming a mom myself, the business had to be put on hold, and I started documenting my own family.
Children grow up so fast, and the time we have with them is never enough - and I became captivated on documenting every memory I could with them. From the big moments and milestones, to the mundane of everyday life.
Photography combined with motherhood has made me slow down and appreciate each and every moment. I want the photographs I take to tell a story - whether it is the story of my family, or a client - my photos are how I see the world around me, the memoirs of a life well lived.
I live in southwest Florida, and am blessed to be surrounded by family and friends. My family and I love the outdoors - fishing, boating, the beach, or just exploring the world around us. I draw most of my inspiration from my kids, but am always learning and looking for new ways to be inspired. I do my best to appreciate every day, find the magic all around, and document my beautiful chaos, one photo at a time.
My Photography Style is Mainly lifestyle. Though I love studio and creative edits along with conceptual photography. I used to specialize in family and newborn photography before I had my kids and life got crazy. My kids are my biggest inspiration, though my love started with nature photography. I love combining the two. I also am inspired by thinking outside the box and creating images that go beyond the camera. I hope to inspire other photographers and be inspired. To continue to grow as an artist while helping others explore their love and passion for photography. I love connecting with other creatives and would love to eventually teach what I have learned and continue to learn. Especially sharing my love of creative editing and documenting childhood.
