Jennifer has worked professionally as a photographer for seven years starting with portrait, wedding and event photography and moving into product photography, but her interests have always been in editorial fashion photography. After graduating from the University of Washington with a bachelors focusing on photography and video, she has since worked as a lead photographer for a branding and marketing company in Seattle doing editorial and product photography for local-based designers.
I have always been interested in stories; from the moment I could talk, I would tell them. I imagined whole worlds with different characters and customs, and I spent hours upon hours flushing out those worlds with the foods they would eat and the fashion they would wear. I find photography to be an extension of story-telling. I set out to capture the story of a different world or character through the form and fashion of my models, and in doing so, I am able to convey my experience of this through an image. With each image, I hope to share the story that I have captured, and to inspire different worlds and characters through the imagination of the viewer as I have experienced for myself.
I have done a wide range of shoots from family and couple portraits, product photography, wedding and event, fashion editorials and personal art projects that don't really fit neatly in one category or another, but the one common ground out of all of them is people. I love working with people and getting that chance to talk and get to know someone and try to bring out their personality and story in my shot.

I took a few classes in traditional printmaking, and I already have a room filled with prints I have made and traded for.
