Jenifer Ritchie

Welcome, I'm Jen and I'm so glad you're here!

I am a West Lafayette, Indiana, portrait and wildlife photographer, and I specialize in senior, family, headshot, and personal branding photography, along with wildlife and nature images from my travels out West and spots close to home. 

Most days you will find me juggling my teenagers' schedules or out at the Celery Bog photographing wildlife, but as a mom of 5 (and two lively Golden Retrievers),  I understand how important it is to capture these fleeting moments. That's why it's so important to me that I guide you through a step-by-step process to ensure your session is easy and fun! From our first phone call to your photo reveal, I want you to feel taken care of in the details of your shoot and the emotions of the moment. 

If you are looking for authentic, laid-back images to commemorate milestones and beautiful wall art to place in your home, let me help you design a session. As a published and insured photographer, I'd be honored to chat with you. Feel free to contact me and let's start dreaming of your shoot!

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!
