ABOUT

Hi, I'm Jen. I'm a Children's Portrait Photographer here in Los Angeles. I am self taught and have no professional training. Just the love for photography. I am however, constantly learning new techniques and frequently attend newborn workshops to ensure baby's saftey comes first when setting up advanced poses. I also have a background in Business Administration and prior to pursuing photography full time, I oversaw the operations of 22 retail stores and worked as a Human Resource Manager.

Something personal: I will most likely show up at your door with a giant Starbucks in my hand. People say I'm pretty funny ¯\_(ツ)_/¯  My mom thinks I take nice pictures and highly recommends me ;)   I love binging Netflix & Hulu.... Currently watching Castle Rock. I love True Crime shows and books.  I feel like I was a DJ in a past life lol. Audiobooks are my new favorite obsesison. I finish 2-3 in a week.  I also speak 3 languages fluently :)

Here's my story:

When I was around 10, I borrowed my brothers Canon AE1 35mm Camera with a zoom lens and taught myself how to use it by trial and error (back in the film developing days). I was obsessed with the Academy Awards, Film and Actors. I wanted to photograph them. As a "tween", I would have access to all the major hollywood parties and award shows (sometimes by sneaking in). This sparked up my passion for photography. With a lot of patience and determination, I was able to teach myself how to operate the camera in manual mode and use flash.

Years later, my nieces and nephews were born. My spark grew greater and I began to take pictures of them (children) for the first time. I've loved photographing kids ever since.

Then came friends and family who had children of all ages: Newborns, toddlers, and teenagers. I created my first website to showcase my art. I was now a Children's Portrait Photographer. In 2007, my passion as a Celebrity Photographer was taken to another level (an actual career), selling thousands of photos and being published in magazines around the world. I worked with several agencies that distributed my photos worldwide.

I've been featured as one of the  "Top Newborn Photographers in Los Angeles"  by Expertise.com (2017, 2018, 2019). In 2013, I was named Best Children's Photographer in Los Angeles by LA Parents Magazine. I'm a member of PPA (Professional Photographers of America), WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) & NAPCP (The National Association of Professional Child Photographers).

So now that you know a little about me and my work, let's take some pics!
