I'm all about bringing people together—around dreams, big ideas, and the extraordinary contributions that people and brands make in the world around them. It is with this inspiration that I partner with clients in telling inspired visual stories that make fleeting moments timeless.

Your personal guide to inspired visual storytelling.

Hey there, I'm jena.

Dreamt up and actualized in a one-of-a-kind experience. Guiding from conceptualization to execution, it is my intention to inspire creative exploration and embolden a sense of discovery—from navigating far away places to illuminating the depth and beauty of every day moments.

The process begins before the single click of a frame and ends with the manifestation of a vision, a story captured in pixels or held in the palm of your hand.

Photography and videography is my magic of choice. Through the lens of a camera, I love helping people see their own unique beauty, turning cherished memories into ones that can be revisited time and time again, and invigorating brands to make an impression that resonates deeply within hearts.

As a creative director, each photo or video session is part of a bigger picture...

my favorite moments to capture.

Mallory, founder of Amasouk

From styled in-home shoots in California to on-site photography with artisans in Morocco, Jena has captured the heart of our brand. You can see that she is talented by looking at the images, but Jena's true genius is in the way she ideates and executes on what seem like crazy, out-there ideas.

Chadwinn Scott

I have worked with her on multiple projects ranging from video advertisements to branding photo shoots. She has a magical way of making clients feel not only comfortable in front of the camera but confident. She is punctual and professional and I am always pleasantly surprised with how quickly she delivers the final product after shooting is over. She has a unique ability to balance taking request from her clients with asserting her professional opinion to make sure that the final product always exceeds my expectations. 

"No one compares to Jena!"

JJ Barrows

Jena not only takes amazing photos, but she is so fun and easy to be around that she creates the perfect atmosphere for the best moments to be captured. She made me feel beautiful just being myself and comfortable in front of the camera! If you’re going to spend most of your wedding day getting photographed, you definitely want someone like Jena to be around to capture it!

Mel, founder of best fronds

I have worked professionally with Jena multiple times and she is amazing. She not only has the talent, but the passion for capturing stories via film and photography. She actually cares about your project and wants it to thrive and succeed as much (or maybe even more) as you do! She always gives 110% effort and is extremely professional. I highly recommend using Jena for any and all of your future projects!
