Jen picked up a camera in grade school, and proceeded to force her sisters to dress up and model for her "photo studio," which usually consisted of a piece of tagboard taped to a wall. After many years, and after a stint in corporate America, actual clients began to request her portrait services. She specialized in weddings for several years, while nurturing a passion for the one-on-one, fine art nature of boudoir photography. As brides and portrait clients became boudoir clients, Jen realized a desire to shift her specialty to boudoir photography. She launched "Show Me Beautiful," a division of her main studio (Serendipity Photography) in 2005.
Jen draws inspiration from the curves, light, and shadows found in nature, and from dramatic "Old Hollywood" portraiture. She has a gift for seeing beauty, especially in places where others don't see it. She uses this gift, along with her degree in psychology, to connect with women on a level that goes deeper than just taking photos, with the result being portraits that truly "show you beautiful."
Along with running the photo studio, Jen keeps busy with two kids in middle school, and as many rescued pets as her husband will allow. She enjoys road trips with no destination, painting, cooking, and napping, and bingeing on Netflix.
