"We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand — and melting like a snowflake."

-FRANCIS BACON

Portrait

Hi there, I'm Jenna.

 

I love the intrinsically poetic nature of photography; it’s an artistic means of attempting to immortalize the transient moments that so quickly escape us. 

 

My admiration for the art-form started a little over a decade ago, with taking last minute senior portraits for a handful of my high school friends. It was then, with my basic point-and-shoot camera that I discovered how meaningful it is to artfully capture my friends as they naturally are. Years of experience and several DSLR upgrades later, here I am.

I have always been someone in search of different outlets for creative expression. In my early twenties, I received my bachelor of fine art’s degree in drama. Despite the erratic turns my life has taken in my journey of self discovery, there is one thing that has remained constant; put a camera in my hands and I am happy. Having a creative outlet that also makes others feel good, providing them with visual memories to cherish, is the loveliest.

It only seemed natural to explore the world of photography. I’ve been teaching myself how to use Adobe Photoshop since I was in middle school, at first to make Sailor Moon and Lord of the Rings graphics for my fan pages. Not to mention I've always been the friend that takes great pictures. ;) 

 

Life is fleeting; its transience making it ever the more beautiful. I like to quietly capture the essence of my subjects, as they are in the moment. I aspire to compose images to be cherished for a lifetime.
