Hi everyone, I am Jenn, the owner of Captured Memories Photography. Before I started this business I never wanted to be in a picture. I avoided the camera like the plague and I regret this. I did not see the importance of pictures till 11 years ago when my father passed away. When I started to go through the old photos there were not a lot of my father and I together because I did not want to be in the picture. I regret this. So after the birth of my daughter in 2010, I bought a camera and my whole world changed. My life can now be told through photos. I love capturing moments through the lens and I now GET IN THE PICTURE. I want my family to look back and have these memories. There are so many ways to be IN THE PICTURE even if your not completely happy with your outfit, your hair or whatever your excuse is. Take a picture of your hand in your child’s hand, your feet next to each other to see the comparison of that age against yours, a hug, or walking away holding hands. There is no excuse not to be IN THE PICTURE. Years from now when you look back at these photographs you will be glad you did. Lastly, print out your pictures and date them. Time is fleeting and in the moment we think, “Oh I will remember what year and month this is.” But the reality is we usually forget. So please, GET IN THE PICTURE or one day you might wish you had.
A little about myself, I am a mother to a beautiful daughter who keeps my camera busy with her beautiful smile. I am a wife to a hard working husband who encouraged me to take this leap into this business that has since grown beyond what I ever thought possible. By day I am a self taught photographer with an eye for anything antique or vintage and by night I am a certified veterinary technician working evenings at an emergency clinic for 17 years and counting. I have a very busy life like most do now a days, but it makes things much easier since I am surrounded by things I love to do. In my spare time I love spending time with our animals, hiking, and exploring new places with our family.
Thank you for choosing Captured Memories Photography! Lets capture some beautiful memories together!
