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 high school senior, college grad, and family sessions, along with wildlife and nature images from my travels out West and spots close to home. I also do engagement, headshot, personal branding, and commercial photography. 

Portrait Sessions

Most days you will find me juggling my teenager's schedule 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!


Wow, would I have loved someone to give me advice when I was starting out! I'm so happy to now offer mentoring for portrait and wildlife photographers. If you'd like to schedule one-on-one virtual session with me, you can contact me here, and beginning wildlife photographers, you can grab my free resource, "10 Tips for Beginner Wildlife Photographers to Up Your Creativity & Confidence" here!

Wildlife & Nature Prints

Also, wildlife and nature prints can be purchased 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!
