I'm Jen - a family and wedding photographer who calls Albuquerque home.
An East Coast transplant, born and raised in Central Pennsylvania, I relocated to the high deserts of New Mexico by way of snowy Montana. With a passion for travel, though, I have worked with clients in places like Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Colorado, Arizona, and Texas.
While I've been photographing others for more then eight years, when I moved to New Mexico in 2013, I developed a new appreciation for the art - after all, this unique desert landscape is a photographer's dream.
Shortly after arriving to New Mexico, though, I learned that I would need brain surgery. In 2014, I underwent a ten hour neurosurgery for a condition called Chiari Malformation - I had part of my brain removed and my head fused to the upper levels of my spine.
During my initial illness, doctors worried that I would be unable to remember day-to-day life. So, as a lifelong storyteller, I began photographing (and scrapbooking) the everyday moments. My passion for photography grew as I realized just how special each moment could be.
As a connoisseur of jumpsuits, you'll usually find me in some kind of black one-piece outfit with my camera bag in one hand and an iced tea from Chick-fil-a in the other. And if it's outside of your session? You'll probably see my service dog, Bumper, with me too.
