FAMILIES

With you, I am home.
"What day is it?" 
"It's today," squeaked Piglet.
"My favorite day" said Pooh.

You’re already making memories. Why not capture them?

Jen excels at meeting you and yours exactly where you are. Her sessions are comfortable, relaxed, engaging, and always filled with laughter. Before long, you’ll forget you’re on camera. And then you’ll see the pictures Jen was able to take while you were paying attention to the things that mattered: You. And Yours.

When you see your photos, you’ll be forever grateful that you made the choice to keep these memories in a form you’ll be able to refer to forever.

“Worth every penny! Jen was great to work with, patient with the kids, and made our shoot a really fun, relaxing family afternoon. The images she captured are nothing short of amazing! The pics of the kids are gorgeous, and Jen worked her magic on our family shot so we got an end result with all of us smiling and looking our best. Can’t wait to work with Jen again on future family shoots (and maybe a glamour session for me!) Service was great! Jen always returned emails calls, and texts promptly, and everything was delivered exactly as anticipated. She even went above and beyond to include an extra gift with our order, which was wonderful!”
— Jenny & Jason R

DREAM SESSIONS


Primary school children and tweens are especially open to go where their imagination takes them - it's a magical and fleeting time in life - and often overlooked. Dream sessions celebrate these ephemeral years.

Jen will work closely with you to customize your session - at her studio or on location - to capture the magic of childhood, By using costumes, props, and backdrops that mirror your child’s unique joy and wonder, you’ll dream up photos to treasure for years to come.

“Jen was absolutely amazing to work with! She captured the personalities of all three of my children, not an easy task and she did it with ease! She kept things fun and my kids gravitated to her engaging personality! Her studio is in a great location and the follow up after the shoot was wonderful. She offered assistance in selecting prints and demonstrated a true willingness to be flexible in allowing my husband and I the opportunity to choose the prints we wanted. The reality was we LOVED all of them and I highly recommend her to those with children. You won’t regret it!”

SENIOR PORTRAITS

If you’re looking for a senior portrait photographer, you know this is a window of time unlike any other - the bridge between child and adulthood. Jen approaches each senior portrait with the same care and artistry she brings to all her sessions. She’ll collaborate with each student, encouraging them to step into their personality and confidence, without rushing the process.

The pictures Jen takes during her sessions are composed of candid moments, and poised portraits, to capture her subjects just as they are. No matter their age.

I contacted Jen just a few weeks before my family and I would be in Maine after loving the photos on her website. Jen responded a few hours after I emailed and was so flexible and easy to work with in setting up a time for a series of family photos to celebrate my brother’s college graduation. We had planned to have Jen meet us at the house where we were staying but the Maine weather was uncooperative, so we instead decided to meet her at her studio. On the way to Portland, Jen called us and suggested that we head to a local park because the sun was coming out. The setting was a perfect backdrop, and we love the way our photos came out. While I love the result of taking family photos, the process itself is never usually very fun. But Jen, who is gregarious and incredibly easy to work with, made the process fast and easy. The final pictures are fantastic, and Jen is a consummate professional and a pleasure to work with. If we’re up in Maine to celebrate another event, we will happily call Jen to take our photos again!
