Hi there! I’m Jen and I’m so happy you’re here!
I am an Ohio-based portrait photographer who serves all of Ohio including (but not limited to) Columbus, Youngstown, Dayton, Toledo, Cincinnati, and Cleveland.
Growing up, I was the child who always had a camera with me. It was in high school that I first began studying photography, and I was lucky enough to major in Portrait Photography in college, giving me the formal education in lighting and posing. Throughout my education, my interest in photography became a passion, and that passion has only continued to grow.
Once I graduated, I worked for one of Northern Ohio's most prestigious studios for 8 1/2 years. During that time I worked with thousands (yes thousands!) of seniors, and photographed tons of sporting events, school dances and sports teams—all of which gave me the opportunity to really fine tune my craft.
What sets me apart from every other photographer is my ability to help my clients relax and have fun. I truly value the relationship I build with each client. I strive to get to know each of you so that I can use my creativity and the things I learn about you to create one of a kind portraits that show a special and unique you at a very important time in your life. I also am extremely detail oriented; I notice the little things most people don't. I have a natural, clean style of shooting and editing, which helps the natural beauty of you shine through.
Most of all - I truly believe its important to build relationships with all of my clients. Not only does it make the experience better, but I’m very much a people person and I love it when those relationships turn into lasting friendships.
I can’t wait to tell your story!
In the words of singer Chris Young, "I was raised on country." I grew up listening to country music and it will forever be my favorite. The list of country concerts I've been to is a mile long! I've even met many country artists! Top 3 favs though are: Jason Aldean, Eric Church and Jordan Davis.
My son Zachary is 4 years old and keeps me on my toes! He is the light of my life and my whole world. His laugh is contagious and I love seeing the world through his eyes.
What does that mean? I work as a full time Director of Design and Digital Marketing for a Software company that deals with Non-Profit Associations across the country and run my photography business on the side.
I grew up on the family farm so my roots run deep. The farm has received the Ohio Sesquicentennial Farm Award which means it has been in the family for more than 150 years! My friendships mean the world to me and I've been friends with my closest for over 20 years!
Saturdays are meant for football. THE Ohio State University football that is. (Unless I'm shooting a wedding that day of course!)
I've partnered up with a ridiculously awesome fellow photographer to help her photograph weddings! Diana of Perfect Pixels Photography & Design is absolutely amazing and I love working with her!
