I have always had a love for photography! It started with my Kodak camera that I carried around as a child, and continued at the University of Michigan where I earned by Bachelor of Fine Arts. I also experienced the joy of teaching young people about photography while I was a high school art teacher. I have had the privilege of working with many high-end photography companies, gaining experience photographing weddings and events along the way. After many years of working with others, I started my own company in 2007, and am thrilled to be doing what I love!
I believe that photography can preserve those very special moments in life, and that professional photography is worth the investment. With Jen Barnes Photography, you benefit from my years of education, training, experience, professional camera equipment, and eye for a great photo.
Personal attention in making your photo session special and unique is my focus. I prefer a natural style of photography that lets the best you shine through. I enjoy using the available light in a beautiful or meaningful location of your choosing. I live in and serve the Phoenix, AZ metro area. I also absolutely love to travel, so please feel free to take me along! Studio sessions are also available, utilizing either natural light, or studio strobe lights.
Jen Barnes Photography is available to photograph weddings, engagements, family and senior portraits, maternity and babies, modeling portfolios, and events. It is my privilege to capture the images of your life!
