If you asked me what the highest honor of my career is, I would tell you it is when I get to photograph repeat clients. Yes, beautiful photography is important, but more important than that is the experience. I want the people that stand in front of my camera to want to return to it year after year. I want their photographs to line the walls of their homes. I used to love looking at the family vacation photos that the Kennedys had taken every year they traveled. Real moments. Raw moments.

Krysten is someone who I’ve photographed through all of her huge life events. We were new friends when I photographed her wedding and now she is like a sister. We’ve built a trust around my camera and she allows me to fully create art. When new life events come up we already know I’m going to be there to photograph it. We create mood boards and talk locations. She’s hired me to photograph her engagement session in Tallahassee, wedding in Jupiter, maternity photos in Atlanta and Miami, boudoir in Tallahassee, and travel to Oregon. What an incredible ride.

I love travel, I love photography, and I love documenting real moments in people’s lives. I hope to be many people’s “life photographer” during my career.

Krysten and Andrew are expecting their second baby (the photos bellow are from their first pregnancy, with their daughter Vada). I wanted to ask Krysten some questions as to why a maternity session was something that resonated with her. Also, why she chose to do more of an intimate maternity session, as opposed to the traditional.

West Palm Maternity Photographer | Jenna | West Palm Beach

When it comes to maternity, I really want the story to be about the mom and baby. Pregnant women sometimes feel like they have lost their identity, and I love to help them see that they are still beautiful and wanted. The story is theirs and I’m just there to capture it.

This was Jenna’s third child and she wanted to do something a little different. She knew this was going to be their last time having a baby, so this felt like the perfect way to preserve it. She left her husband and kids in Tampa to come do this session in my home. I believe she really enjoyed that time to herself and with her new baby, as a month later he'd be born and things were sure to change.
