The Fleming Family Photos

What a fun family session with two generations Saturday evening! When the Fleming’s session suddenly changed and one of their kids couldn’t be in the photos, they pivoted and asked their in-laws to be in the session instead. It reminded me of how important it is to encourage people to be in photos. For as…

Senior Session: A Unique Location with Hannah

Hannah had the awesome idea to do something different for her senior photos – she decided to have them at a school her family is remodeling in Montmorency, Indiana.  Her family is renovating the old school into an event space, and it is definitely still in construction phase. Despite the materials and dust (and the…

Browning Family Session

We laughed, we rolled, we ran, we ate Cheez-its during this family photo session . . . well, maybe not all of us but at least two! The Browning kiddos were a lot of fun, and I couldn’t feel more privileged to capture kids who I have known since they were in their mama’s belly.…

Senior Session: Westside’s Dan Gavin

I had a great time photographing Dan for his senior photos! We walked up and down Main Street in Downtown Lafayette and ducked into alley ways and popped over to side streets, and the whole time he remained calm and up for anything. Dan wore things that were uniquely him. He captured where he’s from…

4 Tips for Photographing Toddlers

Chris & Mary’s Fall Family Photos I had so much fun photographing Chris, Mary, and their little guy this past weekend during their family photo session. I met Mary many years ago when she was a personal trainer for our business. After working on other endeavors for a while, she came back – this time…

Sound of West Side Seniors

I teared up watching clumps of Sound of West Side seniors walking toward me at University Farm Park this past Thursday. I’d been asked to take photos for their senior banners for a season unfortunately that had to be canceled. These West Lafayette Jr./Sr. High School students have been putting in so much time and…

Alicia’s Headshots

I had so much fun doing headshots for Alicia. I’ve known her for a couple years now, initially as my physical therapist. I had hip surgery last November, but before that I found Alicia (thankfully!) and she helped figure out my problem and get me to the right orthopedic surgeon. When she needed headshots for…

Grizzly 399 & the Fab 4

On our first full day in Grand Teton National Park, we found ourselves in a bear jam that evening. We pulled into a parking lot and found a safe place among park volunteers, long-lens toters, and bear enthusiasts until the elusive grizzly made its way out of the willows. According to a volunteer, the sub-adult…

Sir, You Can’t Have a Dog around a Moose

Some of my friends call me “Ranger Jen.” And I admit I do think I am a park ranger once I enter a National Park. On our annual trip to Rocky Mountain National Park in 2018, I was peacefully watching a moose graze in Sheep Lakes (okay, people who know how geeked out I get…

Sisters Surprise with Family Photos

I love walking away from a photo session filled with joy. I usually do. It’s so fun to watch people come to life, to share moments with their families, and celebrate important milestones. I recently had the opportunity to photograph three sisters at Purdue; they were beautiful inside and out.  I first met Olivia when…
