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!  

Anna Grace’s Senior Recital (Belmont) …

I got a call from Bob several weeks ago.  Bob is Anna Grace’s dad (you’ve seen Anna Grace on this blog here and here).  He told me he had a problem.  While it was a good one, it was a problem nonetheless.  He proceeded to tell me of his beautiful office with large windows and a 14-foot-high walls.  The problem?  Those 14-foot-high walls … completely bare.  He told me that he wanted to fill those walls with his beautiful family.  I can HANDLE this problem 🙂

Anna Grace (the baby of the family) is a senior at Belmont University and is brilliant on the violin.  Her senior recital was coming up, so Bob and I planned for me to shoot her recital and then since the family would all be in town, we would photograph everyone so that he would have that custom artwork for his walls.  I’m super excited about what we got and I can’t wait to show them everything. 

So, this is a two-part post.  First up is the recital.  I’ll follow up with the family session in the next day or so. 

Anna Grace sounded amazing and looked simply beautiful in her long black dress and RED shoes.  I’m loving the shoes.  Here they are before the recital, waiting to go on stage.  I figured I’d give them their time in the spot light since they’d be hidden most of the time by the cool dress. 


These next two run neck and neck for being my favorites.  I think this first one might be in the lead at the moment, however. 





Meet the band … yes, she had a band.

Zander Wyatt on electric guitar…


Corn Perry did double duty on bass guitar and upright bass (such a beautiful instrument) …


Casey Driscoll and Kellen Wenrich on fiddle …


Lee Holland on drums …


Sarah Davison (also seen here) on piano and Daniel Parks on acoustic guitar …



The set list … in lights


And this girl … Lindsay George, has an amazing voice.  She sings jazz.  I am so completely drawn to that style of music and someone who can pull it off!  She’ll do well!


And oh, how I adored her shoes. 


And to finish off the evening, RJ Knapp had everyone moving to Stevie Wonder’s Sir Duke.  I had to tell myself to STOP moving (so much).  FYI – Dancing while trying to make a photograph does not GENERALLY lead to a good outcome.


 I love good music 🙂

Like I said, I’ll have the family session up in short order.  Check back soon.  They’re one beautiful family!!
