HI – HAPPY TO HAVE YOU HERE!
I’m Jenna – a storytelling photographer specializing in documentary newborn, baby, family and life event sessions. Thanks to the documentary/photojournalistic approach, all you need to do is concentrate on spending quality time with your loved ones.
Families come to me at various stages of life, and I strive to photograph them with curiosity, empathy and concern for what their current situation is. They invite me into their most intimate space – often their home – to get real life memories captured in pictures. Documentary photography is so much more than a “style” of photography – it’s an approach to life.
I work primarily in black and white to emphasize the emotions, the action, or the play of light in the pictures.
I believe in photo books and treasure boxes filled with prints – paper will always be viewable no matter which version of iPad the world has evolved to. I worry about kids of today not having tangible memories tomorrow, so I don’t take the responsibility of creating keepsakes for your kids lightly. Even if you are the one footing the bill, I see your kids as my primary client. My job is to make sure that your kiddos have photo books and prints to rummage through when they are older – and to make sure that you are in them.
Available for natural in-home as well as on location sessions in San Francisco Bay Area, South Bay, East Bay and beyond. Based in San Jose. Available to travel!
