Hi :-) I'm Jennifer and have been a lifestyle photographer since 2005. For the first 13 years I almost exclusively photographed luxury weddings in Arizona, and around the US and world (while also photographing families). I loved my time as a wedding photographer, and still photograph a very limited number of small, intimate weddings each year, but as my kids grew and my weekends got busier with them, I transitioned my focus to family photography, people portraits, and lifestyle branding photography.
Throughout my 18 years, no matter who has been in front of my lens, my goal has been the same: to capture naturally beautiful, editorial feeling images full of soul and connection. Images that feel authentic -- and hopefully pull you into them.
With families & branding photos, my style is to combine natural-looking poses with candid in-between moments to give you photos that have that timeless, lifestyle vibe. My goal is to put you at ease and make the photoshoot experience as stress-free and fun as possible, to capture not only what is pretty (because I know you want to look good in your photos) but also what is real; love, connection, laughter & those little fleeting moments. I'll help you with planning, clothing and posing to try and make everything as comfortable as possible. Reach out here if you would like to schedule a session with me. Thanks for being here!
Over the years I have been honored to see my images published in national and local magazines, international ad campaigns, and on many websites & blogs -- but it's the meaningful reviews from clients that mean the most. Thank you for your kind words and valuable feedback over the years!

Thank you so much for the gallery! We really enjoyed working with you, and I’m SO excited to have finally found someone in the area that does such beautiful work! The whole family loved the session and even the guys thought you were so fun to work with. Those are big words coming from guys who aren’t the biggest fans of getting their photos taken! The photos are great, and we are looking forward to using one for our Christmas card this year. It’s really hard to choose, because we love them all!

Being a consultant and a keynote speaker my photo is often my first audition with my client, it is my first chance to shine. Having my photos done by Jennifer was an absolutely incredible experience from start to finish. She is amazing to work with, as I felt she captured exactly what I wanted and needed, in a professional, experienced, creative and fun way. Thanks for helping me shine!
