It's crazy to say that it's time to say goodbye to 2022... it was kind of a weird year, but a good one. I dived deeper into different sessions I use to be a bit afraid to photograph, I added some new props, met a lot of families and more. To take a look at some of my favorites from 2022 or to hear more about my 2022 year, take a look at this blog post:

But for now - let's chat about 2023. The new year is here, and with every year that comes, I try to become my best self and to better my business more and more. With 2023 already here, I've been planning, planning and even more planning on how to make this one of the best years yet. Most importantly, I have been making some big changes to my business in many areas, such as ways to improve my client experience ranging from preparation guides to easy booking. Additionally, I have slowly been adding more and more props to my collection for newborn and first birthday sessions, as I would love to do some more in the new year. Read below to hear just a few of the exciting things I have in store for the new year...


During winter time, I know it is not always "ideal" to get photos taken, especially outdoors. While this is not my busy season, I love being able to fill my calendar a bit for the season and to do so, I am offering 20% off sessions for winter. It's a win-win situation: you get photos for a discount, and I get to continue my passion in a time of a bit slowness for my business. This is perfect if you’re hoping to get some new headshots to show off the “new you”, have a newborn on the way, or you just want some more photos! Take advantage of this offer this winter season and let’s get you scheduled!

Session must be scheduled anytime from Jan. 1st - March 1st, 2023. Offer not valid to already existing bookings.

In 2022, I photographed 13 newborn sessions which were more than I ever thought I would. While photographing these sessions, I have found a passion for doing so that I did not think I really had! For the new year, I hope to be able to photograph even more babes and I cannot wait to show off some new props and fabrics I have slowly been adding to my collection. I will soon make another blog post to show it all off, but for now, you'll just have to wait and see!

I really had a great time photographing 1st birthday sessions in 2022 and I can only hope I do even more for 2023. This year, I have been able to pick just a few themes to incorporate with the 1st birthday set up I offer, as well as several tassels for a pop of color! More information will be created on a separate blog post to show off all there is in store!

In 2021, I raised more than $5,000 for various schools and non-profit organizations in the community with the help of the MANY families who signed up and took advantage of the amazing opportunities to get photos. I am looking to offer fundraiser sessions for 2023 and would love some recommendations for the different school PTOs, your favorite non-profits, and more. If you are also on the search for fundraising opportunities, please reach out to me for more information and I would love to chat.

Model calls are the perfect way for me to test some of my ideas before posting it out to everyone. I typically offer at least one model call per season before I launch some mini session ideas. For 2023, I have more than enough ideas in mind LOL and I will be on the hunt for families who are willing to be my "model family" and in return, receiver a free session with a few digital images included :)

I only offer model calls for past clients as I am already familiar with working with these families and it avoids having people who aren't actually interested in signing up. If you are interested in helping me out for a model call, consider joining the JENNAKPHOTOS Facebook group and keep an eye out to see when I post a model call!
