I’m Jenna – a documentary newborn and family photographer based in San Francisco Bay Area, but born in Finland. I live in San Jose with my outdoorsy husband Marcus and smart-but-often-strange Australian shepherd Nova.
I truly insist that real is more interesting than perfect.
I'M AN INTROVERT EXPAT.
Being Finnish means navigating some culture shock now and then, as I’m more quiet compared to the average Californian. I prefer to talk about the real stuff, and am a bit awkward when it comes to small talk. I stick to plans with friends religiously, no matter how casually the plans may have been mentioned at first.
I understand how it is to feel like you don’t always fit in, or how it is to want a break from the expectations that await outside the door.
So if you’re looking for someone to make a big show during your session while posing and directing, I’m not the photographer for you. But if you’re looking for a low-key observer who pays attention to the little things that make up your family, I’d love to be invited to drop into your life for a bit.
Let’s talk! Actually – let’s email at first.
