HI, I'M JENNA!
I'm the photographer behind @JENNAKPHOTOS and I specialize in photographing children and families in the Mercer County area of New Jersey and beyond! I'm a daughter, a sister to my sister and special needs twin brother, a student in college, an avid puzzle lover, and of course, a photographer. I am currently enrolled in a local college and I am majoring in early childhood education and special education, with a focus on English. Working with children has always been one of my passions and I hope to continue this passion in my future career of being a teacher and my current career of being a photographer!
Ever since I was a young age, I've always had a camera in my hand. Whether it was a cheap Fujifilm camera, my iPod touch, or even my mom's digital camera, I have always been intrigued by capturing photos. I've always considered myself a creative individual. Photography was always a hobby that truly stuck with me, and finally, it became my calling to start a photography business.
My photography business first got its start in March of 2020, when COVID-19 first broke out. At the time, I was a junior in high school and decided to continue my long-time hobby during this time of uncertainty and jump on a trend I had seen many photographers participating in, porch portrait sessions! I decided to give porch portraits a try and they became a hit for my booming business. I was booked almost every single day driving to and from family homes in the Mercer County area of NJ! It was truly a blessing looking back at that experience and how it helped me discover that my passion CAN become a business, and it definitely helped me gain so much knowledge in running a business, improving my photography skills, and finding my own identity as a photographer.
To this day, in September of 2022 when I am writing this About Me post, I have photographed over 800+ families within the past two years of business. I am so honored to have such an amazing opportunity as a photographer to be able to capture so many beautiful families each and every day. I cannot wait to further my photography business in the years yet to come and to meet so many more great families!
