hiiiii, it's me...
Jenna, your third eye photog:) lover of all things yoga, jiujitsu, Radiohead, astrology, orca whales, PLANTS, and tattoos. The second best part of this life is that I get to do what I love for a living every freaking day. And the first? ...being a mom to the spunkiest, sassiest 5 year old and a ridiculously happy as heck 7mo.old. I am the grateful owner of a yoga studio and wife of a radical stunning man who shares a birthday with me (big Pisces energy). Life can be chaotic almost daily, but it’s what I breathe for. Literally, I adapt almost perfectly to hectic situations, it’s how I thrive, and quite frankly, the word “organized” just triggers me. The hell you'll ever find me with a planner, to-do list, or saved #s in my phone. AND MAN I AM SO INDECISIVE. I find it nearly impossible to balance my career, home life, and self-care, but I make it happen and do the absolute best I can to keep it all flowing with ease. BOUNDARIES ARE IMPORTANT, Yoga/meditation play a huge part in my everyday life (both are truly a necessity) and I am reminded by life’s synchronicities that the universe is always on my side. When I'm not hanging out with a camera in my hand, you can find me loving on my babies and husband, teaching/practicing yoga, training jiujitsu, spending time with my crazy Italian family (we can literally sit at my grandmas for five days straight and it would be totally normal), traveling, and dancing freely at music festivals.
I specialize in lifestyle and wedding photography to capture moments in the purest way possible where the image itself bleeds emotion. As someone who tries to live presently through mindfulness, senses, and awareness, I encourage you to do the same! That simply means that I want you to immerse yourself in the moments with intention and authenticity, together we will create something raw, emotional, and expressive.
Due to my Piscean personality, I am intuitive, emotional, creative, and introspective, but also an extremely personable extrovert, leaving me to find connection with anyone and everyone. I am energetically upbeat, yet laidback, and I almost include 20 exclamation points in every email...!!! Ever since I was a child, I was the the social butterfly of the bunch who documented each moment I could with an obnoxious amount of disposable cameras. I eventually upgraded to a cheap digital one as technology increased, but MAN, do I miss picking up a stack of photos from the store to see what nonsense was inside! *photog tip: print your photos!* To this day, I still have bins of every photo I've ever printed and thoroughly enjoy the nostalgia.

to embrace all the different ways of interacting with those around me, and truthfully, photography has introduced me to some of the finest humans I have ever met. I love witnessing two people in love create the most beautiful imagery just from their chemistry and affection, I love watching families laugh and play as I capture their genuine embrace, I love the struggles between new parents as they try to comfort their fresh babe, I love how each picture manifests emotion. Photography is a continuous reminder to keep chasing what I love, to keep my creative juices flowing, and to keep expressing who I am though my art. Each time I pick up my camera is a new learning experience, from details and location to processing and editing, not to mention time management! I want to make people feel something when they look at my work, that alone is one of the most rewarding tokens of this career.
