it's nice to see you! I'm jenn.

I'm a love photographer, designer, and a nice human. I love sunshine and birds and I spend a lot of time reading the first halves of books. I like that 36-questions-to-make-you-fall-in-love thing. So I answered a few below so maybe we'll be friends a little faster.

q&A

What's your life story in a bite?

I grew up in a cornfield. My mom and dad loved taking casual pictures. I wanted to tell stories. I thought I'd grow up to be a movie director or an architect. I went to school and learned how to be a designer. After that I learned how to see through a camera. I got a bird and moved to Philadelphia and ate a lot of snacks. Here I am, writing this, snacking.

If you could invite anyone in the world to dinner, who would it be?

I think it would be Leo Tolstoy. I know I'm a photographer and I'm supposed to idolize famous artists, but I think he wove something beautiful with his mastery over the written word. I really loved reading Anna Karenina and felt something of a connection with it.

What would constitute a “perfect” day for you?

Waking up and realizing I'm not where I'm supposed to be. What? Why is there so much sunlight in my blacked out Philadelphia apartment? What's this? A morning balcony alive with birds and croissants and my man? And we're overlooking a beach where we'll spend the day taking photos with each other. He'll probably busy himself reading, so I'll explore endlessly in the sunshine (there's also a cheese platter somewhere in there)

For what in your life do you feel most grateful?

Setting aside the obvious (the wonderful people I get to spend time with in my life), I think I'm most grateful for my growth and the time ahead I have to keep growing. I used to be someone completely different, and in a few years I'll be much different from who I am now. There's potential, everywhere, at all times.
