FINE ARTIST + DAY DREAMER
I am Jennifer. I am a mother, a dreamer, a wife, a daughter, a leader, a Christian, an inspiration, and a force of nature!
I create soulful, meaningful, and dynamic portraits by striving to capture the “essence” of the person or atmosphere. I have the ability to see inside of people or read them in a way, and my goal is to present who that person is within my portraits. Honestly, I’m not quite sure how I do this, but I think it may have to do with my past and who I am as an artist. In the past, I’ve always been by the sidelines. I was a quiet child, taking things in, and reading my surroundings. As I became older, I realized I would never be popular, nor would I be very much like everyone else. I desperately wanted to be. I wanted to be a cheerleader, be beautiful, be popular. But that’s not who I am, nor who I was intended to be. I was a reader: a reader of books, a reader of situations, a reader of people. And thank goodness for that!!
Artistically I strive for perfection and technical excellence within your narrative, but if the technicalities or the “rules of photography” are getting in the way of my vision for your photograph, I let them fall by the way-side. I have an idea of what I want out of your photo session in my head before I begin shooting. As the shoot progresses, we get to know one another more, I begin to see you differently, and my vision may change. If a certain spot is not working for me, then we change to something else in a snap. I’m very up front about what’s working and what isn’t whether it be posing, the light, background interference, etc.
Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions about me or my shooting style, or an idea you have for a shoot. Let’s get some Starbucks and chat!
