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!  

Photographer of the Year …

I’m not one to toot my own horn very often, but … toot, toot … I thought this was pretty cool.  The Tennessee State Fair is currently going on here in Nashville.  I entered 5 photos this year in the professional section, all in different categories.  I hadn’t had a chance to get out there yet, but on Sunday I got an email from a friend of mine congratulating me on all of my awards.  Since I hadn’t been there yet, I had no clue what he was talking about.  Jeff and I MADE some time on Sunday to go see what the fuss was all about.  (Let me tell you what a sacrifice this was for Jeff as it was football’s opening day for most NFL teams – he’s a keeper 🙂 )

So, judging was like this – Best of Show images were awarded first.  For each section (professional and amateur) there is a Best of Show for Color and a Best of Show for Black and White.  They then awarded ribbons for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and honorable mention in each category.  After judging was completed, the Photographer of the Year was awarded based on the body of work entered into the fair. 

So, Jeff and I got to the fair and saw that for the 5 images I entered, I received 2 second place, 2 first place, the Best of Show for Color and … (drumroll please) … Photographer of the Year.  Pretty exciting.  Jeff took a couple pics.  I’ll post them tonight.
