Hi guys! Welcome to my first blog post! I figured a good way to debut the blog was to tell you a little bit about myself.
My name is Jenn and I am the owner of Jennifer Nicole Photography. I reside in Winter Springs, FL with my Husband and HS Sweetheart, Mike and our doggo Bailey. We are originally from Long Island, NY but have called Florida home since 2016. This June we will celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary and 10 years of annoying each other. I'm a Mets fan, Mike is a Yankee fan and now you understand the "annoying each other" in the previous sentence ;-). We love Gordon Ramsay and all his shows and binge watch The Amazing Race on the weekends (when it's not baseball season of course). I love Saint Patrick's Day and throw my doggo birthday parties, so you could say I'm pretty lame. I'm okay with that though.
I began loving photography at a very young age and managed to piss off just about everyone in my family at holidays because I'd be in their face taking photos.....and just about any and all occasions. For my high school graduation, I received my first Nikon and instantly became obsessed with the power of creativity it allowed me to showcase. I always wanted to do able to take photos for "work" but as I got older, I saw that becoming less and less realistic....cause you know, rent?! electric?! dinner!? gas?! Now I'm at the point in my life where if I don't at least try to reach my goals, I've already failed.
My grandparents were a huge part of my life growing up. My Nana basically raised me and taught me everything I know today. Ironically, she hated her photo taken. I was the first born grandchild, the "princess", the angel, and usually got away with murder in her eyes so, fortunately, I had been able to take some photos of her without much fuss. When she and my grandfather passed away 5 weeks apart in 2010, I was thankful for those few photos as they were all we really had of her. This is a huge reason why I love doing what I do. When you lose a loved one, the first thing you look to for comfort are PICTURES! I WANT to be the one to give you those pictures.... those photos, those memories. You cherish photos for a lifetime, and I want to be able to give your family that. For generations to come, *I* want to give your family that.
My goal here is to be with you through every chapter. From your wedding- to the day you hold your first child- to when you send them off to college- and everything in between. Your milestones are important to me and I'd love to be able to share them with you and help you write your book. Chapter by chapter.
I look forward to getting to know you and your story! Don't be a stranger, come say hi! email@example.com
