Hi! I am glad you're here!

I am Jennifer, the lady with the camera. I have always loved taking photos and all things creative. My obsession took off though, when I had my first child and got my first "big-girl" camera. From that point, I photographed everything I saw - my food, kids, garden, family, friends, pets, etc. I continue to learn with each click of the shutter and I strive to improve with every shot. I have come a long way and am excited about all that I have to learn!

I am based in Waterloo, Illinois and love to shoot in the St Louis Metro area. I prefer natural light, with a traditional/photojournalistic style. Meaning, I want to catch the small moments, the details, along with the traditional shots. My goal is to capture your character and emotion in your images. Therefore, I want you to *be you* in your session!


What you can expect:

{In your shoot}

I want you to relax, feel comfortable, and be yourself.  You will lead the shoot with some guidance from me.  Sessions are VERY relaxed and involve us exploring our location for different spots.  I will make suggestions for poses, and follow your lead.  Sometimes kiddos take a minute to warm up - I'm in no hurry.  Let them get used to me.  Let's wander, let's play, let's wait until they are ready!  

 

{My edits/your photos}

I want to give you as many options as possible.  Here's the thing - I don't know what shot you will like best.  Some of my favorite photos of my own kids would not be any one else's pick.  So - I will let you choose!  I give you all of the good shots that I get.  I edit each of those and a variety of ways (clean, B&W, and a matte edit)- again, letting YOU choose what you prefer.  This means your gallery will be LARGE and you will have plenty of options!

 

I am excited to meet you!  Thanks again for visiting me here. :-)
