About & Current Projects

Jenna_Bio_Pic

Starting as a street photographer in NYC, I was quickly drawn to taking photos of people, capturing the unspoken facets of our personalities and the special relationships between us. Since I was a child, photography has been one of my best friends. Inspired by my parents and uncle, I saw how photos aren’t just a pictures, but a story, a memory, a feeling – a part of our history.

I am a natural light documentary style photographer who enjoys a little grit and humor thrown in there as well. You know, like real life! I don’t use many props but enjoy creative locations and wardrobes.

Our shoot won’t feel very posed, and you won’t be asked to smile. For me, a good shoot feels natural and is a conversation – a conversation during which I will document, well, you. My goal is to take soulful and meaningful images for you. I hope you will collaborate with me in capturing part of your life.

Currently I am building Aspire to Inspire, a project designed to tell inspiring stories of us mere humans though writing and imagery to positively impact each other and our communities. Hard to miss with all of my posts, I am also offering mini shoots and donating all proceeds to our niece who is courageously fighting Burkitts Lymphoma/Leukemia. Past projects include a photo series called Voyeur, shown at The Soho Photo Gallery in Tribeca where I was an Associate member. I hold a Bachelor of Arts from NYU (but that doesn’t make me a better photographer…)

I am always available for shoots with families, expectant mamas, kids, newly engaged…you name it!

I must take a moment to thank Professor Anne Hoy of New York University and The Great Kate Schwindt, friend and photographer. These two women helped me get started through critical editing (Hoy) and encouragement (Kate!) and embody the most grace I have ever seen in the art world.
