Learn all the skills you need to create stunning photos while making your subjects feel at ease.
Getting amazing portraits of people isn't JUST about your technical settings as a photographer (though I can teach you those as well). It's about setting your subjects at ease and making them feel confident in front of the camera. You can be the most technically proficient photographer in the world, but if you don't know how to make your subject feel comfortable, it will show in your photos. We'll start with where you're at, whether that be learning the very basics of your camera (shutter speed, aperture, ISO, white balance, etc.) or jumping right into photographing people. Once you've got the basics down, I can teach you the psychology behind making subjects feel comfortable. I've developed some great tricks and tips over the last decade to share with you! We can also talk about lighting; natural light, strobe lights, continuous light, lamp lights, fairy lights, etc. You can make photos look amazing with whatever light source you have on hand. You don't have to get fancy! But if you already have all the fancy stuff I can teach you how to use it. I'm pretty obsessed with light, I "see" it constantly and can't turn off my photography brain. I would definitely say I photograph light & emotions! I can also teach you posing, wardrobe coaching, and pretty much anything you need to know about running a photography business, or just shooting for fun!
About Jen F.

I've been a professional portrait photographer for over 12 years and I have earned my bachelor's in Fine Art. My focus is to empower people to feel comfortable in their own skin through photography. My photoshoots are basically like a therapy session with a camera! I'm passionate about what I do. Photography has been more fulfilling than I could have ever dreamed! I've traveled internationally for photoshoots and have led women's retreats around the world. Photography is my sole source of income and my business hit 6 figures within 4 years of being open. I teach photography to all folks with the desire to learn! I'm LGBTQ-friendly and love working with women, non-binary, trans, men, and children.
