About Jenni

Who I Am

I graduated from Southwest Texas with a degree in marketing, and received my MBA from the University of Texas. I live in Austin, TX, a place I’ve called home since 2003.  I work full time in an office, but am blessed to have the opportunity to spend my free time behind a camera.

While my passion is not limited to specific people, places, or things, nothing compares to the feeling of giving a parent the memory of their newborn child, as they will never be this small again. I enjoy simply being a witness to the pure light and love that accompanies a unique, new soul. From the tiny little hairs on their ears to their flaky baby feet, these are the unique characteristics of new life, and I am blessed to be able to capture their extraordinary beauty.

…..More About Me

  • I have two dogs and I have WAY too many photos of them.
  • I practice schizophrenic organization – I am so particular about being organized….sometimes….selective OCD is another term that comes to mind. Everything has a place, unless it’s in my office or closet.
  • I also have selective A.D.D. There are times when I have so many ideas running through my head at once that I have the attention span of a kitten. Yet I can sit behind a computer and edit photos for hours on end without so much as a trip to the fridge for a snack.
  • I self-diagnose my many idiosyncrasies.
  • I make lists for everything (everything).
  • I don’t take myself too seriously and I laugh a lot (sometimes when it’s not necessarily the “appropriate” thing to do – but when something is funny – it’s funny)
  • Proud member of Professional Photographers of America (PPA) and National Association of Professional Child Photographer (NAPCP)
  • CMPro and former Mentor at Clickin Moms, one of the largest global communities for photographers
  • Awarded "Recognition of Merit" in NAPCPs International Image Competition in 2012 2014

There you have it. The good. The bad. And the funny.
