i’m jenna

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! 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.
