Jenifer Ritchie

Welcome! I'm Jen, and I am a Nature, Senior, and Family photographer in West Lafayette, Indiana. I started in nature photography, capturing beautiful landscapes and wildlife from our yearly trips out West and parks here closer to home. Now, when I'm not photographing sunsets or turquoise lakes, I also enjoy making photos of the stories and people in my community.

I first visited the Rocky Mountains when I was 19, and I have been hooked ever since. Whether it’s a moose in Rocky Mountain National Park or a grizzly in the Grand Tetons, it feels like home. A few years ago, I was tired of not being able to make the shots I wanted, so I began investing in better cameras and lenses, and now I get to hone my craft, working each week to capture nature’s beautiful moments. 

But an Indiana girl can’t always be in the mountains. When I’m not helping with homework or taxiing teenagers around, I’m trekking the Celery Bog Nature Area or shooting a senior or family session. Making photographs of the people in my community gives me joy, and I love being able to help people capture lifelong memories.  

So I hope I see you out there, whether it’s at a soccer game, the Celery Bog Nature Area, or the Rocky Mountains. If you need someone to capture senior year moments, take family photos, or you would like one of my nature prints, I'd be honored to help.

Please feel free to contact me at for more information. Nature prints can be purchased via my website by contacting me here. If you see something from my Instagram or Facebook account that you want but it's not here, I'd be happy to help you find what you're looking for. I look forward to hearing from you!
