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!  

It’s a Girl … welcome, little Lucy.

Our family has a new member … little Lucy Kathleen, born last night.  Ok, no, not to ME, but to my younger sister (Dawn) and her husband (Taylor).  She weighed in at 7 lbs. 10 oz.  I’ve yet to see her as they’re all the way up in Chicagoland, but if she looks anything like her older brother, Ezra (seen in the header at the top – 2nd photo from the left), her face will be the envy of all cameras. 

It was kind of cool, they didn’t know the gender of the baby until she made her appearance last night.  My sister could have sworn it was a boy as the pregnancy was identical to that of her first (Ezra).   She offered to bet Gram (our grandma) $1000 that it was a boy.  Gram said she’d go as high as $5.  Bet you wish you’d taken her up on the bet, huh Gram 🙂  They even kept their choices of names to themselves.  Anyway, in a world of instant gratification, the wait was kind of fun (although don’t go expecting the same from me 🙂 ). 

Now, let me direct some words of advice directly to my sister.  Dawn, since you yourself are a 2nd child, you know firsthand how the 2nd child suffers terribly from “2nd child syndrome” – you know, the parents struggle to find the time or see the urgency in capturing that little life in photographs.  With the first, everything is, well, a first, and parents  go crazy photographing EVERYTHING that little one does.  By the time the 2nd comes along, there’s just not time anymore and the newness of being a parent is long gone.  So PLEASE, as a photographer, and more importantly, as the sister to a younger sister who hated that she didn’t have many pictures of herself growing up, MAKE the time.  I can’t wait to see some pictures. 🙂

Congrats guys.  Can’t wait to see you all.
