"Jen made the photo shoot so quick and easy! I liked that she helped us pose in ways that looked so natural. She even made my shy daughter feel so comfortable. She captured lots of genuine smiles and we were so happy with how the pictures turned out. I liked that she sent out a questionnaire prior to the photo shoot so she could really tailor it exactly to the kinds of pictures we wanted. Can’t wait to book her again for next year’s holiday photos!"

"Jen is absolutely amazing.
She is personable, professional, and poised. She makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera, and if you’re like me, you tense up. Jen captures beautiful candid moments and understands the PERFECT moments you’ll want saved forever. Her ability to get the perfect glow of lighting is a true skill that can’t really be taught, she’s just got IT. You won’t be disappointed with Jen."

"Jen is an incredible photographer and she was such a pleasure to work with! My husband and I did a winter photoshoot on Donner Summit and it turned out to be truly magical!! We asked her to give us direction and she did just that. I would hire her again in a heartbeat!"

"For anyone who is the least bit camera shy, Jen is your go to photographer! She was patient and understanding and willing to work with some reluctant smirkers 😏 and bring out our real smile! 😄 Jen’s gift as a photographer is many tiered. What was expected to be a family chore - the annual Christmas card pic - turned into a family experience that was both rewarding and fun!"

Sometimes I hear this word and automatically flash back to, like, 1997 when we would go take sibling photos at JC Penny's. So, if you are wary of the word 'portrait,' just know that I understand. Portrait sessions can include almost anything from professional headshots to engagements, where the photographer (me) has almost total control of the session. Webster's dictionary defines portraits as.... jk.
I will ask you this...what is the most important part of your life? I bet when you answer this question you think about one of the following... your family, your friends, your partner, or for some of you, even your career. Chances are, even if you didn't say any of those things, at least one of them is important to you. As much as I love taking photos of my friends (my dog), family (my dog), and life (also dog) on my iPhone, there is nothing like the memories captured by a photographer on a fancy schmancy camera.
Get ready for this little nugget of truth; the only photos you regret are the ones you didn't take. So. No regrets. Book your portraits.

Posing is the most intimidating part of taking professional photos! Just know that you are not alone in feeling like this.
All you have to do is be a willing student and good listener and I will coach you through the most natural and flattering poses for your body.
By the end of our session, you will feel like a pro and you might even be able to take some of the knowledge you learn and use it for your every day photos.
Once you book, I will send you to my "Location Guide." Here you can see examples of my previous work at different locations to help you choose for your own photo session.
I also love trying new places! If you have a location in mind that is special to you, let's go!
Your Pine Portrait Session includes 25 photos that you get to choose yourself. Your gallery will come with watermarked images. All you have to do is 'favorite' the 25 you would like to keep. Once you have made your final selection, I will open up your gallery for downloading!
The Evergreen Portrait Session includes 50+ unlimited photos and will come un-watermarked and ready to download.
The most important decision you can make when choosing your wardrobe is selecting an outfit that makes you feel comfortable!

I will send you an online, shareable gallery guaranteed within 30 days of our shoot
Yes! Print your photos! Get them out of the computer/phone and onto your walls or into a photo album!
There is a professional printing lab connected to your gallery. You can order prints directly from the gallery and they will be drop shipped straight to your door. You can also download and send your photos to any printing lab of your choice.
Nope! All of the photos in your gallery will be high-resolution JPEGs and edited in my Jen Bauer style :)
Not only can you share your final gallery with your family and friends, you can give them the download pin and they can download the photos too!
