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!  

Brown County

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 bunch of old college buddies (hey to Jason Lee, Micah Dean and Chad Jackson).  Back in the early days we had to rely on our friends for their camping equipment.  We had none of our own.  We’d all sleep in one tent.  That first year – 5 of us and a dog (Alex) in ONE average sized tent.   We ended up going a little later in the season than we’d originally planned – the first week in November.  IT GOT DOWN TO 20 DEGREES AT NIGHT.  I wasn’t really prepared for the weather to be THAT cold.  We had thin mats and basic sleeping bags.   But I survived and we had an absolute blast.  This was Jeff’s first time with the whole camping thing and he loved it.

Times have changed.  We have all of our own gear.  We now sleep in our own tent on an air mattress, with a BIG, fluffy down comforter.  Plenty cozy and plenty warm.  We took my sister-in-law (Jeff’s sister, Jackie) and our nephew (Jackie’s son, Luke) with us last year.  She thought it prudent to poke fun at us for being a little too froofy with all of our bedding.  That night it got down to about 30 degrees.  Guess who had the last laugh?  The next morning we had to find a place for them to buy new sleeping bags.  

Anyway, so here we are in October again.  Time for another camping trip.  With this being our 10 year camping anniversary, we found it only fitting to venture back to the place it all started – Brown County State Park in Indiana.   If you haven’t been to Brown County and if you live nearby, you must visit.  It’s a 4 hour drive for us from Nashville (Tennessee).  Just outside the park is a very cute little town, an old artist colony, called Nashville (Indiana).  We went 2 weekends ago, just the two of us, and had so much fun.  We realized that this was our first year to go by ourselves. 

So, I’m putting up some of my favorite pics from the trip.  We spent a lot of time in town, so there are a lot of cool detail shots from around town.  The weather was PERFECT!

We had a GREAT campsite.  Very private.  I hate being right up next to someone.

We do cook while we’re out.  Here’s Jeff cooking breakfast and then me cleaning up.

Here are the detail shots from around town.  These first two are spools of ribbon in an art shop.

We had a late lunch in town.  No this isn’t all we had, but it made for a cooler shot.

Dessert!

After walking around all day, we took a much deserved rest in the late afternoon sun.

Not done just yet, though.  We didn’t eat here.  This was just inside a CUTE little general store with a deli counter.

Then we came upon a potter.  Here’s the lump of clay he started with.

Time to head back to the campsite before it gets dark.

Back at the site.  Dinner time.

Snack time.  When was the last time you had Jiffy Pop?  I was excited.  I don’t think I’ve had it since I was a kid.

Finally, settling down for the evening with a couple of beverages in front of a great campfire.  What a fabulous day!
