“It’s one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it’s another thing to make a portrait of who they are.”- Paul Caponigro
Jennifer Blackwell Photography has been serving the greater Jackson area since 2004 and specializes in senior casuals and weddings.
Prior to starting a photography business, I had always appreciated photography and found the challenge of capturing quality photographs thrilling. I quickly realized I enjoyed taking pictures for the people around me more than taking them for myself. I found that there was something very fulfilling about watching my friends’ faces light up when looking through the proofs I had captured. Those moments led to the discovery of my passion for helping people preserve their happiest moments through photography.
I am a full-time wife and mom. Our children are grown now, so Steve and I are entering the “Empty Nest” chapter of our lives. I believe this is the reason I find such joy in capturing the very special moments in the lives of high school seniors through casuals. Photographing weddings allows me to share in the very exciting beginnings for couples, and being trusted with that is a remarkable gift and very high honor. In each session, my first and foremost interest is capturing photographs that my clients will be able to cherish for a lifetime.
Outside of photography, I also LOVE:
- That I am saved by Grace
- Spending time with family
- Meeting new clients and their families
- Making moments stand still
- My three fur babies: Duke, Rusty, and Rylee
- Cookie dough and chocolate
- Iced tea
- Spending the evening with Steve on our back patio (which doesn’t happen as often as I’d like- some may call me a workaholic!)
I strive to provide my clients with an enriching photography experience that allows them to preserve their most cherished moments. Ultimately, my goal is to glorify God with my business and give Him thanks for allowing me to do something I am passionate about.
I look forward to meeting you!
