Hello – I’m Jen!
As a little girl, I can remember my Aunt Eileen always totting around her camera and taking photos of everything… it didn’t matter where we were; if she found something that caught her eye she would stop you and position you just right. Everything had to be perfect. Something that I realized later is that even the imperfections were perfection in her eyes. I consider her to be my true inspiration because when I think about photography she is the first person who always comes to mind. Years have since passed and so has she, and what I have grown to realize is that I am left with is an undying love for the power of a photograph. A passion for telling stories, your stories, and evoking the emotions of your memories with a tangible heirloom for you to treasure for a lifetime. A photo isn’t just a picture, its a moment is time, capture forever. Its your story waiting to be told. As an artist I try and inspire myself and those around me to be creative, dream big, explore all possibilities and tell stories of love, of travel and of life.
I grew up on the west coast and will always be a PNW girl at heart. No, it doesn’t rain there as much as we say it does and yes, there is a really is a Starbucks on pretty much every corner of the city. Pikes Place Market, in the heart of downtown is where you can dodge flying fish and find the most gorgeous bouquets of flowers for $10 – you will never want to buy flowers anywhere else. The thing I miss the most about living out west is snow covered peaks that tower over you in any direction you look. There is truly nothing more picturesque and grand. Why did I leave you ask, well… I met a boy name John, fell in love, we wed one warm summer evening in August, and packed up our dogs and everything we owned in a U-Haul and started a new adventure continuing our story together across the country! The West Coast will always be home and it will always hold a special place in my heart and, the story of us.
A few things I LOVE: My husband John | Our pups Ellie & Bear | Travel | Fresh Peonies | Red lipstick | A great pair of heels | Coffee…lots of coffee | And pretty much anything that has me active and outdoors
