thank you for dropping by my awesome blog... my name is jennifer and i love all things art, photography and artsy photography.
when i was thirteen i started to document my life with my mom's 35mm slr (that's film photography...just in case you were wondering). twenty-two years later ~ yep...go ahead and do the math :) ~ and i have my bachelor's and master's in photography. oh! and every day i also get to teach advanced darkroom and digital photography at new trier high school in winnetka illinois. seriously folks, i LOVE what i do and feel blessed each and every day that i get to share my passion with aspiring young artists.
photographing people has always made complete sense to me. whether it be documenting weddings, family portraits or individuals, i geek out over retelling stories through my photos. i love experiencing love, giggle fits and raw moments of joy. i love my photojournalistic approach, but am comfortable and confident in my experience to helping you figure out how to stand, lean, + sit too.
i have been described as a big-fat nerd and an uber-friendly girly-girly. i adore my film cameras, but have a rockin' arsenal of digital equipment. i still exhibit my photography in galleries and enjoy beautiful and serendipitous moments that unfold before me. i love the feel of amazing paper and the smell of darkroom chemicals (and you understand me if you have ever worked in a darkroom). i have also been known to squeal when i find perfect natural light.
i would love to sit down and talk more about life, love and photography. let me know when and where and i will be there... just send me an email :)
