Once upon a time, I was a middle school teacher.
My days were long but filled with questions, with plans and with those spectacular moments when a student’s eyes light up and I knew I’d done my job. It is an immense blessing to me that I can continue to see that light gleaming in others’ eyes and an honor to know that I’ve helped make that happen.
Whether you purchased your camera last week – or you’ve been shooting professionally for years… If you own a camera, you’re a photographer to me and together we can make magic happen with that camera. That magic is inside you, I promise. I don’t hold back or keep secrets. In our mentoring session or in my workshops, you’ll be free to ask whatever you have burning in your heart.
Here on my peaceful farm surrounded by nature…
we’re going to grow your talent.
learn your camera
find your unique style
speed up your editing workflow
write your own actions (and how to edit without buying actions!)
learn to find that yummy, gorgeous natural light
achieve perfect skin tones
determine how to determine the best camera settings for every situation.
Workshop and mentoring prices includes a 6-month membership to the Light Inspired forum where you can chat with other members, ask questions and continue your education

When you visit the farm, I have a warm, inviting place for you to stay. The Cottage is a three-bedroom, all-inclusive, fully stocked home (with wifi!) just across the field from my own house… just for my clients and workshop members. Unwind, be inspired and enjoy your stay!
If you’d like headshots or family portraits during your time here, I have special portrait rates for photographers staying at The Cottage.
what others are saying about the farm…
I also want to tell you how much I enjoyed spending the day at your cottage and working with you & meeting a GREAT group of ladies. It was truly an HONOR! I learned some great techniques and learned what will probably be the MOST valuable advice ever on my photography journey- wherever that may lead me. This ONE sentence changed my entire outlook on my PERSONAL vision of photography. You said, “My goal is to get it right through the lens so I don’t have to spend hours editing.” I will continue to strive to get what looks and feels right to me. THANK YOU for your patience, time, knowledge and compassion for those of us pursuing a dream. It means more to me than I could ever put into words.
Several different photographers whose work I have looked through… that you have worked with recently, I can literally see the day after they took a class with you. Their work has that big of a change!! For that many people to have that drastic of a change, you really must be an amazing teacher. I am so unbelievably excited to work with you this summer!!
Jennifer has been taking pictures of my family for about 3 years now. She is absolutely one of the sweetest people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. She has helped me so much with learning photography. Anytime I have had questions she has answered them with no hesitation. I was in her first Workshop on the Farm class, and I learned SO MUCH! I now take a few pictures for people as a hobby on the side. I would love to create a bigger business, and Jennifer has let me know that when I am ready she will be there with any information and advice she can give. I will say that when you meet her, you get way more than a mentor, teacher, and photographer…You get a wonderful life long friend in the process! I consider Jennifer family, and absolutely adore her
I took the photography class with Jennifer and all I can say is wow! I learned a lot. Jennifer is a patient teacher and even let me come back and shadow her on a senior photo shoot. I learned what all the bells and whistles were on my Nikon D3100. I love the quality of the photos I take. I have and would recommend her work to anyone with a desire to learn photography.
Not only is Jennifer a phenomenal photographer, but she is a truly gifted teacher. Her down-to-earth style and genuine nature shine through her photography and greatly influence her teaching style. Mentoring with her is an opportunity to learn, experience light in a whole new way, frolic on the farm, gain insight into her mastery of Photoshop, and find a friend.
My ability and confidence in photography has grown immensely since meeting Jennifer, If it wasn’t for her help I’m not sure I could have even begun to come close to achieving the “look” that I want in my images. I keep thinking that in April I had no clue how to use my camera other than to turn it on and use the Auto button, when in fact the possibilities are endless, who knew?! With her guidance, advice and mentoring I KNOW that I have improved more than I could have imagined! Jennifer is so good at explaining everything and she is always available to answer questions. She has never made me feel like my questions were silly or unimportant. Her passion for photography and her ability to teach it to others is as genuine as she is. I am so blessed to have met her. I heart her.
