Jennifer Jacobson Photography bio picture
  • Hi there. I'm a wife and mother of four children. I like to take pictures of things that move me, and what moves me most is love. My goal in photographing people is to create images that evoke an emotional connection, a visceral response. I believe if you see your love in pictures, you'll feel it all over again. Thanks for stopping by!

Now that the days are officially longer and warmer, I decided to post these images from a southern debutante-themed high school graduation party I shot last year. Hosted at a stunning Hillsborough residence, it was perfection in a summer evening. There were three “debutante” girls who hosted, and these gals and their moms know how to throw a party! Everyone came dressed to the nines in southern-inspired seersucker and sundresses. There was plenty of space for mingling while enjoying a view of the bay, munching on hors d’oeuvres, and sipping lemonade served in mason jars. Carnival-style games allowed the guys to show off for the ladies.  A bluegrass band completed the ambience as the graduates and their parents enjoyed an alfresco dinner of fried chicken and fixings. The event was charming, fun, and family-friendly. Enjoy the pictures!

B+M-27-EditLove and valentines are in the air! I’ve been thinking about this awesome shoot I did a few years back, conceived by one of my followers. Since love is my favorite thing to photograph, I’ve decided to hold a contest called “see your love.” Tell me who you are, who or what you are in love with, and how you want to see your love in pictures photographed by me. I will choose my favorite submission and shoot it for FREE! Do me a favor–don’t send me a pinterest board of shots you want me to copy. Tell me your story, and then let me retell it. I’m hoping for authenticity as well as a creative collaboration. The contest is open to anyone, but if you or your idea aren’t local (SF bay area) then travel fees will apply. To enter the contest, first “like” Jen J photography on Facebook (just so we can be friends!) and then send me a message with your idea. If you’re not on Facebook, then email me at jennjacob@gmail.com . I can’t wait to hear from you!

This session was kind of magical. It happened last minute. The mother literally contacted me the day prior and I happened to be open the next day for a newborn shoot. She doubted the light at her place would be very good. She couldn’t have been more wrong. The warm window light allowed me to capture this new family, soaked in love and basking in the glow of new life. I frequently tell my clients that I’m jealous of their pictures, and these images are no exception.

Well hello there! I know you’re super busy right now trying to figure out what unique gifts to give everyone on your list. If you’re reading this right now, you value family, memories, and beauty. Chances are if you value those things, your spouse/parent/sister/niece/bestie/employee/child’s teacher/all of the above value those things too. Why not give a gift that embodies all of those values? How about the gift of custom photography? I offer gift certificates for complimentary photo sessions (and prints/products too)! I will even make it super easy by sending you (or that special someone) a gift card packaged in a box with a pretty bow. Done. Email me at jennjacob@gmail.com to find out more, or hop on over here to get started.
