Family Films & Photographs

So you can remember this messy, imperfect, beautiful thing called life.

What if you could hold your life in your hands?

What shape would it take? If you could stop time, what would that mean to you?

I am an observer....

For as long as I can remember, I have observed.

When I was four, my brother was born and I quietly watched as my mother hummed, fed him and rocked him to sleep.

Once, while playing in the front yard with a neighbor, I watched my father walk out of the house and turn to kiss my mother goodbye.

I sat at the table in my Grandma Rose’s kitchen, playing a game with my cousins while keeping an eye on my grandmother as she buzzed around, preparing a meal for us with no recipe, just dashes of tenderness.

I observed what love looks like.

Welcome! I’m Jen.

I am always observing, to this day. It is a skill that does not go away, nor would I wish it to.

As a filmmaker and photographer, I am a mirror which reflects the love of your family back at you. A safe place for you to relax and let your story land.
