About Jennifer

I LOVE my life. I live on a farm north of Vermilion, Alberta with my husband and our two amazing daughters, plethora of dogs, a roaming band of barn cats, chickens, ducks, and a purebred and commercial cow/calf operation. I love spending time with my family. I am lucky to live in my version of paradise.

I am passionate about creating things - carpentry, leather working, beading, crafting, sewing, quilting, upholstery and knitting. I am the queen of DIY! I also have a background in graphic design, and used to own to a website design company.

I love growing things. I can be found out in the garden all spring, summer and fall.

I LOVE spending time in the kitchen - cooking, baking and canning. I have a fruit orchard, so I love making pies and jam. I also enjoy making my own butter, cheese, yogurt, bread, and anything else you can imagine.

And of course, I love photography!

I have been a professional photographer since 2002, and I once travelled Alberta photographing horses, horse shows and the occasional rodeo. I was also a freelance writer and photographer for major equine and agricultural publications, and in 2003, I became a full-time reporter and then the editor of a local newspaper, where I honed my photojournalism skills. After our first daughter was born, I switched my focus from horses to humans, in order to be able to stay closer to home.

With age comes inevitable changes. I now struggle with arthritis, and I am no longer able to offer wedding or event coverage. I am happy to continue to offer one-hour portrait sessions at this time.
