First and foremost– thanks for stopping by! You taking a peek at my website just made my day whether I know it or not! I guess we’ll start with introductions… my name is Jenna! That’s me pictured with my sweet husband-to-be Ryan! Despite all the photos of me frolicking through the Smoky Mountains– I’m actually a born and raised Florida girl from the suburban city of Lakeland. Never heard of Lakeland? If you pull out a map of Florida and look between Tampa and Orlando, you’ll find us! I also use to live in Birmingham, AL where I studied Journalism at Samford University.
Photography is my passion. When I was in middle school my parents got me my first point-and-shoot digital camera. It was nothing fancy, but I took that thing everywhere. As time went on I continued to purchase little point-and-shoots and would bring them to school, vacations, youth group trips, football games, basically anywhere I could. I loved taking photos of what was happening in my life. Around the time I became senior in high school I started to see the world differently through my viewfinder. I decided I wanted photography to be more than just an album on my Facebook with photos that I thought were cool. I wanted this to be my “thing” the answer to the “what to you want to do with your life” question. After graduating from Samford, I embarked on my entrepreneurial journey. I’m now a member at Catapult Lakeland and have learned so much about photography and running this business.
The thing I love the most about my job is the ability I have to capture moments and memories that people will treasure forever. I know how much I cherished the photos I took while I was growing up, now I want to help you preserve yours. The way I see it, God has blessed me not only with the gift of photography, but with the opportunity to photograph some of the most beautiful and amazing people who’s stories I get to help share, and that’s pretty cool.
A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS
Traveling to the coolest places – I have quite the bucket list of places I want to see!
The Florida Gators! There’s nothing quite like the game in The Swamp… or my family’s livingroom!
Busting a move! I danced for 10 years before moving to Birmingham, and still love to dance.
My TV shows! The Office, Downton Abbey, One Tree Hill, Parks & Rec, 30 Rock, Arrested Development, to name a few.
Sweets, but mostly ice cream and chocolate chip cookies.
All things Harry Potter and Star Wars, were all nerdy in some way!
Being outside when the weather is nice.
Going to Disney World! Yes, I’m unashamedly an Annual Passholder and I think spending the day at EPCOT is perfect.
Listening to music. The Head and the Heart, John Mayer, Mumford & Sons and Justin Timberlake are some of my favorite artists.
