Hi, I’m Jenny!
I live in Southern California with my amazing husband and my four beautiful children – who are the joy of my life! I have loved photography since before I can remember. I have a passion for capturing life through my lens whether it is snapshots of my children or beautiful portraits of newborn babies. You will always find me with my camera in tow! I feel so blessed to have been able to turn my passion into a career and a business that I truly love. I would love to meet you and to photograph you too!
Some fun facts about me:
I have 4 kids ranging from age 23 years – 4 years old!
I love hot chocolate. I crave it actually…
My husband is my best friend in the whole world.
I grew up in Europe and I love everything about it, I daydream about going back there all the time.
I love to watch my little boy laugh – you know the deep belly kind – it makes my day!
I love hot showers, flip flops, a clean house, thin crust pizza and swiss chocolate.
I cherish a good night’s sleep, a few moments of quiet every day, and the look on my kids’ faces when they discover something new.
To me, complete joy is riding bikes with my kids, family dinners, and walking on the beach.
One of the questions I get asked the most is what equipment I carry and which are my favorite lenses. Well here you go!
- Nikon D3 (my baby!!! i love this camera)
- 85 mm 1.4 – my ultimate favorite outdoor portrait lens
- 50 mm 1.4 – my go to studio lens – pretty much always on my camera in studio
- 60 mm 2.8 macro – so perfect for newborn eyelashes
- 28-70 mm 2.8
- 24 mm 2.8
- The next two lenses on my purchase list are the 70-200 mm VR2 (yummy bokeh) and the 100 mm 2.8 (macrolicious!).
Oh yeah – I am also a Certified Professional Photographer by the Professional Photographers of America and member of the National Association of Professional Child Photographers. I graduated from Brigham Young University with a Bachelor’s degree in Design/Photography. I have been in business since 2005 and I opened my retail studio in Aliso Viejo in 2008. I donate my time and talents to Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep and many local charities, schools and causes in the Orange County area.
