Hi! I’m Jeni, a professional photographer of weddings and portraits – in particular newborn and baby photography. I work from my gorgeous little photography studio based in Legbourne near Louth, Lincolnshire. I love to be creative and meet new people. Especially when I hear their stories. I love documenting milestones in their life and creating artwork for them to adore and look back on. Photography allows us to remember so many moments that would otherwise be distant memories.
My Story and mission
As a mum who was super young when I had my baby, I feel that I missed out on capturing some of those milestone memories. For the photographs I do have, I dearly love and cling on to them, especially as my son is now a fully grown adult! So I know first hand just how important those photographs will be in your future. Life is so fast paced that we get caught up in that flow, and then when we get chance to slow down, we’ve missed the moment. So, I feel really passionate about capturing those milestone moments. Don’t let them all pass without creating yourself some memory tokens – some beautiful photographs.
And as I didn’t quite follow the traditional order of things, I got married much later than having my baby. It was such a wonderful day that I’ll always treasure and I have some stunning photographs and a beautiful album that I love looking back on. I only wish that the experience of my wedding photography had been a little more relaxed, rather than smiling for more than 2 solid hours of posed shots and a chef pressing us to get done so the food would remain hot! And so that is what I strive to offer my amazing couples – a relaxed style of photography. More natural photographs. A wonderful experience that highlights but also enhances the experience of your day.
My Relaxed Approach
As a professional photographer, I often meet people who aren’t keen being in front of the camera. It’s important to me that my clients enjoy their photography experience. So, it’s important to have a relaxed approach. That way you’ll do just that – relax! I’ll welcome you to get comfortable at my beautiful, cosy photography studio near Louth. Or we will venture out into the Lincolnshire countryside where it feels more natural. We’ll chat, we’ll relax and we’ll naturally smile. So, whether you’re a loved up couple or a fun-filled family, between us, we’ll create a beautiful collection of photographs.
I love to catch a balance of ‘posed’ and natural images. One is likely to stem from the other. Often clients appreciate a little direction. In an easy, informal way I’ll make suggestions that will help you to settle in and get comfy, creating an opportunity for me to sneak in and capture natural moments. These feelings will translate into your photographs. And this is what we want to capture and print.
From the moment you get in touch, through to you selecting your bespoke art work for printing, I want you to enjoy your experience. We’ll start by having a chat over the phone or at my studio; discuss what you have in mind, where and how you plan to showcase your photographs.
For brides and grooms, we’ll talk about how I work with my couples, the timeline of how we’ll work togeether and the style of your special day. We’ll catch up several times before your wedding day to discuss all of the important finer details.
For baby and newborn sessions, I suggest having your session at my lovely, cosy studio. It’s been built with these sessions in mind. It has amazing natural light, is warm and cosy and makes for a home-from-home setting. We’ll talk about the relaxed and natural style of photography that I offer, I’ll encourage you to have a small series of little family shots and we can plan for sibling shots too, if you want them.
For families and children sessions, we’ll chat about what style of photography you would prefer; I recommend a location lifestyle session so that young children have the freedom of space. From experience, I often find children enjoy their experience more when not constricted to a confined studio space. And that’s where the natural smiles are created.
I hope you enjoy having a nosey through my website. If you have any questions, then please get in touch as I’ll be more than happy to help.
Smile, Jeni x
