Unveil your Cinderella
We have a new website, totally devoted to beautiful portraiture of women:
Session fee 300. Includes a 2 hour professional styling of hair and make up for you and the person you would most like to be photographed with, a wardrobe consultation, and 2 hours of time before Jennifer's lens. Clients should expect styling to begin at 9:30 and be wrapping up their Cinderella day about 2:30.
Who are Unveil your Cinderella clients?
The women who are missing in the story of their life's photographs. They are every day women who hide from the lens. They come saying, 'I have no idea how to pose,' 'I don't photograph well,' 'I always blink,' 'I hate how I look in all my pictures.'
Jennifer is quick to put these fears at ease while gently coaching each client into the best poses & lighting suited for them. The time is filled with laughter and encouragement. Jennifer's goal is for each woman to see her own beautiful and feel pampered.
When Jennifer's clients leave their Cinderella experience you’ll find them next to you on the soccer fields, across from you at the conference table. They brides who long for beautiful stress-free portraits in their wedding gown... women who have lost a lot of weight and want to celebrate...moms who long to leave behind the ponytail and yoga pants to connect with a side of themselves pushed aside for to long. The women are as different as the day is long. Often they gift these portraits for special occasions to their husbands.
Why Jennifer adores these sessions
Being an eyewitness to the moment the veil drops is why Jennifer has fallen in love with portrait sessions that focus on showing a woman her own beautiful. When she is able to relax and be cared for, a side of her emerges that is amazing to photograph.
Why women want Unveil your Cinderella
Some women have saved for months to realize this dream and have their Unveil your Cinderella moment preserved forever in stunning portraits. Others have been gifted this session by someone who loves them and want to celebrate them. Still others acknowledge every picture of them seems to suggest they were busy caring for the needs of everyone else, so they desire legacy portraits that show them their beautiful. They want portraits that their children will look back at and see their beautiful mother, on the inside and out. Some will say their life is spent caring for others and they come at the bottom of the list, so it’s time to change that for just one day.
As a mom of three boys, Jennifer is very aware of the concerns women bring to their portrait sessions. Her clients are amazed time and time again at her magic to minimize areas of concern and maximize strengths through posing and lighting. Jennifer will consult with every client to help guide outfit selections that are most flattering. No woman will ever see cellulite or stretch marks although every woman has them. They are a part of who we are; however, they do not need to be front and center in our portraits.
Jennifer's stylist, Jill Jackson, creates custom hair and make up transformations that have her clients wishing Jill could meet them in their bathrooms every morning to work her magic! Jennifer and Jill have been close friends for years and they work closely together to create amazing transformations for each client.
Many clients wish to have boudoir portraits created in their session. A boudoir portfolio is available for female clients to review privately upon request from Jennifer. Jennifer photographs married women and engaged women for her boudoir shoots, celebrating the gift of physical intimacy God has blessed within the confines of marriage. Her style is sultry without being overly sexual. She has found women are proud to share these images with their very delighted husbands as a celebration of their femininity. Women have told her they finally found themselves sexy, even though their husbands had been telling them for years.
It is very important to Jennifer that her clients are able to relax and revel in their pampering time. Jennifer never stacks her appointments, for any session. This means each clients' time is solely devoted to her and no one is waiting in the wings for their turn in styling or in front of the lens. Excellence from A to Z is a top priority!

"Jennifer, thank you so much for sharing your talent and gift with me. My husband's first reaction was one I will never forget. For years he has told me I was beautiful no matter what my shape or size. These pictures help me to see what he has always seen. Every woman should invest the time and effort into a session to capture their unrecognized beauty. This was such a freeing moment for me in my life and has impacted in more ways than one.

Thank you for showing me that side of myself and for helping me feel sooo comfortable during the shoot. I can't believe how much I was laughing!! When I see your pictures I realize I have spent so much time focusing on my flaws I wasn't seeing all the beautiful things my husband's been telling me.

Thanks for helping me feel so beautiful! I'm not quite so envious when I walk by the magazine covers anymore---you totally made me feel like one of those girls! Priceless!!"
"Jennifer---when I saw my pictures I could hardly believe it! I just kept thinking, 'who is that girl!?' On any given day you'll usually find me in a pony tail, glasses and yoga pants. So to see myself looking like a knock out is just amazing!!! I almost forgot what it felt like to be beautiful!! Thank you for showing me that side of myself again!!!!!!!
"Jennifer, this is kind of an awkward thing to say, but I've never been someone that anyone pointed to and said, 'she's pretty.' That's a hard thing to carry around through life. You showed me I could be pretty. There are no words....thank you."

"Jennifer you are truly talented if you can make this girl photogenic! Thanks so much for an amazing day with my girls and portraits we will treasure."
O my goodness!!! I wish I could have recorded his reaction. Before completely viewing the first picture he started weeping. He was so touched that I would do something like that just for him. I gave it to him just before going to an appointment. He looked at the album for almost 2 hours until we realized we were missing the start of our client meeting!!! He didn't want to put it down. Thank you so much for sharing your gift with us!!! He calls his book a work of art!!!
