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!  

Dang it, Jennifer!

I’m a little embarrassed. Okay, a LOT embarrassed – that the last time anyone on the outside heard from me was NOVEMBER! Dang it, Jennifer! (I call myself Jennifer only when I’ve done something idiotic or slammed one of my limbs or appendages into something. Needless to say, these are words heard all too often in my household.)

I’ve been telling myself for months that I NEED to blog, but life stuff has taken priority. Something had to give and that something, unfortunatly, has been blogging. Well, I’m back. Anyway, lots has happened since I wrote here last. It is blowing my mind that it’s already the end of May. So, just to catch everyone up on the goings-on in my world – the holidays happened. Enough said. I’m still recovering. Here’s a couple fun shots from Christmas: (I’m going to post one or two photographs for each little subject here, and then expand on those in the next couple of entries – Lord knows I have tons of stuff, but there’s just too much to share in one post).

Okay so I guess there’s more. In mid January, Jeff and I started looking to buy a house – our first. We’d been renting a great little house, but it was time to find something of our own. Wow, that was quite the all-consuming process. We found our new place the first weekend out with our realtor. We fell in love with the house, the neighborhood, the area, everything, and after crunching numbers with our mortgage guy and crunching some more, to our absolute delight, we could afford it. SOLD! We put an offer on it that weekend and 3 weeks later we were moving in. We closed on Valentine’s Day and spent our first night in the house that night. So, from packing and cleaning up the old place to painting, unpacking, attempting to decorate, unpacking and unpacking in the new place, my time has been a little eaten up. What an amazing feeling to know it’s all ours. We’re so blessed! Here’s Jeff giving it a big thumbs up after seeing it for the first time. (I’ll post more in a future entry):

And then … Family came to visit. My parents and grandma came from Indiana to see the new place. I got some super cool shots of Gram (my grandma) that will get their own entry probably in the next week. I totally love them. Check back maybe after the weekend to see them. Here’s a preview. I love this one. (Yep, that’s Gram enjoying a frosty beverage.)

And then … I was also taking another class at Nashville State Community College this semester. This was a little different than the ones I’ve taken out there so far. The others were Photoshop classes. This was a business of photography class. A lot of good learnin’ and the main project in the class was to write a business plan. I’ve been telling myself I needed to do one for over a year, but never took the time and just the thought of it was a bit overwhelming . This class MADE me take the time. Phew, glad that’s over! It was one of the hardest things I think I’ve ever had to do, but IT’S DONE. I spent a ton of hours on it, but I now have a much clearer idea of what it’s going to take to make this business a hugely successful one. Oh, and when I got the plan back from the instructor – it greeted me with a nice little note:

And then … my sweet husband and I celebrated our 4th anniversary on Cinco de Mayo. We took a much needed 4 day trip to Fall Creek Falls in East Tennessee. It rained much of the time, but we just didn’t care. We actually enjoyed it. We did a little fishing in the rain and we sat for hours out on the covered deck (we rented a cabin) listening to the rain. It was all very relaxing! We soooo needed it. Here’s a couple:

And then … I normally don’t watch too much television – can’t, I’m too busy. But the last couple months, my Tuesday and Wednesday evenings were taken up with American Idol. I’ve never watched a season before this one, but this season was different. A dear, sweet friend of ours was one of the contestants. You may have heard of her – Melinda Doolittle. That girl is an amazing bundle of talent. God has given her such a gift. Melinda, we’re so proud of you. God has huge things in store for you.

Those are just some of the things that have been keeping us busy the last several months. The summer is really gearing up. I have several sessions coming up, so stay tuned for those. I promise I’ll be better at keeping this thing up to date. Please, if you haven’t heard from me in a while, let me hear it.

- Davina - Wow, Jen! Congrats on an awesome paper. What a great feeling and what a wonderful compliment from a teacher.
