HI, IM JEN! I REALLY WANT TO DOCUMENT YOUR LIFE FOR YOU.
LET ME EXPLAIN:
Human connection is what drives my work. I choose to document relationships because I think it’s the most important part of the human experience.
I believe documenting your family looking and acting like yourselves, is more meaningful than capturing your family looking perfect; I create photos that capture your family’s relationship because this is documenting your real life! I so strongly believe that these photos truly are the images that matter most now and more so as time marches on and your life takes on new shape.
It is such an honor to be invited into a family’s intimate space for a few hours. I am so thankful for that invitation and access. When you invite me into your home I will learn so much about you, so to be fair, here is some personal information about me:
4 Adjectives I Would Use To Describe Myself:
Energetic: Seriously, I have tons of energy, it’s rare that I feel tired.
Approachable: I am always eager to engage with others. I truly find nothing as satisfying as connecting emotionally and intellectually.
Stubborn: If I can’t agree to your why, I can’t get on board unless you convince me otherwise. Perhaps this is why I work for myself (I say with a half sheepish, half self-satisfied smile).
Most of my closest friends today, are my best buds from childhood.
Part of my wedding vow was “I like you more than anyone I’ve ever met”. It’s still true and always will be.
I'm one of 3 children to an amazing mother and father that I admire and have always felt supported by.
My brother and sister are 2 of my closest friends.
My most sentimental possessions are my printed photos, birthday cards from my family, and my engagement ring.
I love living in densely populated cities.
I love traveling to new places, learning about other cultures, and learning foreign languages.
I always want to stay up late and I am as fond of early mornings as I ever was as a teenager.
SOME MORE INFO:
1- I am Jen Harris and Front Page Photography is my business and my creative content.
1a- I would call my photography business Jen Harris Photography if my name weren’t quite so common.
1b- I chose Front Page Photography because I feel it helps convey the photojournalist style I am fond of and inspires my shooting technique.
2- I am professional and informal. They can in fact, go together.
3- I am an individual who easily connect with people and I really value opportunities to share and communicate with others. This helps everyone involved in the photo session enjoy themselves and makes for great photos.
4- I think it’s incredibly important to celebrate our lives, and I don’t mean just the major days, like births and weddings. Typical days with our loved ones, small events, and mini-big accomplishments (like finishing a puzzle!) are worthy of celebration.
5- Documenting those celebrations honors your life! These are special times you’re living in and you cannot repeat them.
