Jen Wood Photography bio picture

Hi ...

A little about me: I am completely in love with my sweet husband (Jeff), our beautiful daughter (London), our dogs (Jack and Morgan), and our life.  My other loves (in no particular order): family, spending time with great friends, warm socks, hot baths, traveling, camping, campfires, the great outdoors, autumn, being out on the lake, fishing (when we're catching something), 80s music, my girl's sweet and contagious smile, wine, my own caesar salads, laughing and then laughing some more. I am genuine. I am sentimental, often to the point of total sappiness. I am passionate about photography and have been for over 30 years (wow, maybe that dates me a little). 

It is my hope to not only share with you some of the work that I'm doing and show off my awesome clients, but also to let you into my life just a little.  It's hard for me to find time to work on personal things when there is real work to be done, but I'm going to try ... really, I am.

So, sit back and peruse these pages.  If you see something you like, please leave a comment. Who doesn't like a little blog love?  If you'd like to be notified when something new has been added, please feel free to subscribe to the blog (RSS or email) above.  Thanks for stopping by!

I had a session the end of last year with a pretty remarkable little boy and his equally remarkable parents. Ben was 5. Ben’s mom says he was diagnosed with severe autism and probable mental retardation at the age of two. He was non-verbal, highly aggressive, socially withdrawn, had no eye contact, and was consumed […]

- Matt - I have to say - why WOULDN'T they want to use one of these photos. They are gorgeous ++ you did a great job! I'm with Kristin - I would have had no idea that he had autism either. Great work!!

- Amy - Jen, You should be so proud of yourself! The session you had with Ben must have left an impression on him & you can tell he liked you and had a good time:) May your cup run over.

- Scarlett - Awww. Congrats on your publishing, but isn't it great to use your gifts to bless others? I recently did a video for two autistic little girls who had lost their father, and it was such an honor to be able to create this for the family. When you get a moment, you should check it out on my blog: http://captivatingstudios.blogspot.com/2006/09/beauty-of-life-and-family.html ++

- Eileen Chiverton - Beautiful Ben, with recovery beaming from every look, with his special parents - what a joy to see, what an inspiration to all those families struggling with autism every day. The pictures capture a child in the height of happiness and health, they capture the love he has within him given to him by his sweet Mom and Dad. Well done to you all and God Bless.

I absolutely love this time of year.  Fall is my favorite, favorite season.  I just wish it lasted a little longer.  Every fall Jeff and I get together with friends and/or family and head to the great outdoors to do a little camping . . . in tents.  We started this 10 years ago with a […]
