Hey there! I’m Jennifer, but you can call me Jen. I’m located in San Mateo, CA. I’ve been married 14 years and still prefer my husband’s company to anyone else. I’m a mom of four kids and I adore watching them grow into smart, funny, creative people. When I’m not with them, I’m photographing other families. It’s safe to say I have a thing for that unit of society that lives, loves, and laughs together.
In my life before kids I earned a Master’s degree in nutritional science and worked as a registered dietitian, dabbling in photography only as a hobby. When my first daughter was born, photographing her surpassed any interest I had in health food, and now I find myself in a second career. If I had a third career it would be performing in musical theater, but only if talent weren’t required. A few things…I’m drawn to anything with clean style and great design. Connecting with friends and family on a deep level—touchy, feely stuff—is absolutely necessary for me, as is laughing until it hurts. If an 80’s rock ballad happens to be playing I will not restrain myself from singing along. Peonies, libraries, new shoes, a hard workout, riding bikes, making music, a clean kitchen, baked goods, and chubby babies are among my favorite things … but enough about me. Let’s talk about you!
