A Professional Photographer: A Visual Storyteller
A little about me…
Hi! I’m Jeni, a professional photographer of weddings, bumps, babies and families . I work from my gorgeous photography studio based in Legbourne near Louth. For me, being creative everyday is essential; it’s a main part of what drives me, what makes me smile and puts a spring in my step! I take inspiration from the people around me, from other photographers and artists, the local Lincolnshire landscape, from music, fashion and travel. I love meeting new people, especially loved up couples and families with young children.
I want to create photographs that you can’t wait to hang in your home, gorgeous photo books that you lovingly browse through at least once a week and artwork that you proudly gift to family. I want to create photographs that shout out your personality, that brings you back to a moment you loved, that makes you smile. It’s important to me that you enjoy every little bit of your experience, from the very first chat we have at a pre-consultation, right through to selecting your most favourite images.
After graduating and working in education for almost 10 years, I decided to return to my love of art and photography. In 2014, I opened my gorgeous boutique photography studio near Louth to offer couples and families a unique, personalised experience. To find out more, please explore my website. For a nosey behind the scenes follow me on Facebook and Instagram.
I love being a professional photographer and I’ve been asked why I don’t specialise in one area. To put simply, it’s because I can’t resist the variety. I love cuddling a tiny newborn, or playing silly games with a little toddler. And who doesn’t love a good wedding?!!
In truth…. I do this for me as much as I do this for you!
Smile, Jeni x
My Relaxed Approach…
As a Louth portrait 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 can venture out into the Lincolnshire countryside where it feels more natural. We’ll chat, we’ll play 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 Louth studio, discuss what you have in mind, where and how you plan to showcase your photographs. For brides and grooms, we’ll talk about styling, the order of your big day, key photographs and shot locations at your venue.
For baby and newborn sessions, I suggest my lovely cosy studio where we’ll discuss ‘poses’ and ‘props’. All with the aim of creating natural images and beautiful products. We’ll talk clothing, bringing along personal items and we’ll come up with creative ideas to make it unique to you.
For families and children sessions, we’ll chat about what style of photography you would prefer; I recommend a location or 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.
