It's me, Jen! First off, super honoured you'd take the time to meet me here in my little corner of the creative web-world.
A little bit about me... so kind of you to ask! ;)
I'm a suburb-born Langley girl, living in Sydney Australia and studying at Hillsong International Leadership College for 2019 and 2020, with the occasional trip home to shoot whatever fun things you might have for me, and to see all the friends and family! Syd sometimes reminds me of Vancouver and home, but minus the mountains. Oh, and you have to add a degree of greatness to the beaches and coffee scene here down unda!
So if you are around Syd in 2019 or 2020, get in touch! And if you're in Vancity, shoot me a message. Your dates may just line up with a trip home! Pumped to create together!
I try to convince myself I'm a summer girl, but honestly, fall rolls around with its stunning colours, cosy sweaters and fireside tea, and I'm all about it. And just when I think that I've now discovered the best thing ever, winter arrives. Ski hills, cabin getaways, and breath-formed mist, and I'm all about that too! So, perhaps, I'm an all year kind of girl. Truly, there is life and joy to be found at all times, even when it rains for weeks on end...
If you know me, you'll know a few things, in no particular order
1) I LOVE people. People are the most fascinating creations, and worth every time and effort to get to know. I think that is why as much as I love the outdoors, I will always be drawn to portraiture in photography first and foremost. There will always be so much beauty to capture in each expression.
2) I LOVE my Saviour, Lord and ever kind Father Jesus Christ, in whom I have life and breath and all fullness of joy. I see photo-capturing as a sort of way of honouring the stunning beauty he has first and foremost taken such time and detail to create.
3) I LOVE life. Whether it be capturing moments behind the lens, time behind a guitar spent creating and worshiping, time underwater strapped to an oxygen tank and literally freaking out at the glory under the surface, or time spent whipping down a ski hill, I love it all. Bring it all on.
As you can probably tell, I love to capture it all!
The squeals, the alligator tears, the pure wonder, raw emotion quiet awe. All of it.
I am drawn to the in between moments, the goofy grins, the moments when you forgot for a moment I was even there. You can expect that I will probably make a complete fool of myself to make you laugh. If you're a couple, know that I have loads of third wheeling experience, so you can trust I'll be a good one for you and your loved one!
But HEAR THIS. As we get to know one another, it is most important to me that you feel so unbelievably cherished and comfortable behind my lens, because
a) you're worth it and more, and
b) learning and knowing who you are makes the art worthwhile in the first place!
Basically, let's be friends! Life is a gloriously unexpected and ever-changing dynamic thing, and so worth capturing together!
