winter wonderland

We finally got some snow!  It came after Christmas, but– at least we got something.  We couldn’t wait to go out and tromp around in it.  I begged asked the boys if they would please let me get some shots of them enjoying the snow, promising if they cooperated then I’d let them play to their hearts’ content afterward.  I wanted to do something different for our holiday cards this year, and get some wintertime shots for a change.  Taking family pictures isn’t easy, I know.  Taking family pictures of your OWN family, well, that’s another ball of wax.  Or snow, in this case.  At any rate, after the pics were done, we went sledding, cross country skiing, and had hot chocolate afterwards.  It was really a fun day– got me really excited to build our house in these woods someday soon!

Tonia - Gorgeous photos Jen. (as always) Your family is so very handsome! It is nice to see a bit of your new property. I would be excited to live there too!

admin - Thanks, Tonia! I’m sure you would appreciate that setting… you are a “nature girl” at heart! 🙂 Hugs to you. <3

hello, world!

Well, I’ve gone and done it. Created a blog, that is. Why, you ask? Well, for me, it’s all about the journey I’m on. A journey where I’m continually learning, growing and evolving as a photographer. Until now I’ve used my website and facebook as my only way to reach you. I found myself being limited in the ways that I could post pictures and tell the story. YOUR story. So, here we are! You can mostly expect to see lots of my work on here of my photo shoots. But I’ll also sneak a post in here and there about what I’m up to when I’m not taking pictures of other people. My kids, food I love, thoughts about life– it’s all fair game! So, welcome to the blog– I’m glad you’re here!

Liza Slabaugh - It’s amazing how much better picture quality is on your website versus facebook! Also I must say, the graphic design of your website is fantastic; very inviting as well as descriptive of you! Congrats!

admin - Thanks, Liza! I know, facebook is a great tool for getting the word out, but this just takes it to another level. 🙂
