Hey there! I’m Jenny.

There I am with my three favorite people! I have been married to my fantastic husband David since 2008. We call Lincoln, Nebraska our home, sweet home. Our life has become increasingly more vibrant as we have welcomed our daughters to the world: Claire in 2013, and Jane in 2016. They are our most precious gift.

I have a long list of loves, and people are at the very top. The less important things that follow include, but are not limited to good food, stories, sarcasm, celebrations, handmade things, adventure and the great outdoors.

Why I photograph people.

Over the last few years, photography has become integral to the person I am. I get downright emotional about it and truly believe it is one of the most important and beautiful things you can give your family and loved ones – images that tell your story to future generations.

I make photographs for many reasons, the most important of which comes from my strong feelings about relationships and the value of family and little ones. There’s so much about my children that I just want to soak in. Try as I might, I cannot saturate myself enough. There are just too many details to notice, too many feelings to feel, too many narratives to tell. Photographs have that amazing power to stop you in your tracks – to help you appreciate the beauty you so easily pass over in the daily grind. They can show who you really are.  A family that laughs so hard together they can’t stand up. A newly engaged couple whose love you can feel across the room. A rambunctious two-year-old with 30 goofball faces and one breathtaking “real” smile. That is what I capture through my lens.
