Meet Jennie

Jennie Phaneuf PhotographyOh, hey there! Thanks for stopping by…

I’m Jennie, and I document life’s sweetest moments. You know the ones.. They’re the moments worth capturing, and I’m here to make that happen. I consider myself a real-life photographer–a jack of all trades, if you will. My passion for photography started in the kitchen. After developing a recipe, I would set the scene and photograph the dish before allowing anyone near it with a fork. After a few close friends asked me to document their children, families, and weddings, I came to love capturing the raw moments in life where love, passion, and wonder shine through.

I believe that the best photos are the organic moments that occur in front of my lens…uncontrollable laughter, the sleepy, cherubic face of a newborn, the snarky look of a toddler that says “Go ahead, I dare you to take my picture,” the expression of unconditional, irrevocable love that sweeps over the face of a parent when they gaze down at their child, or that giddy grin you get when you look at your fiancé for the first time.

Every look. Every moment. Documented.

Aside from snapping photos, I’m also a recipe developer, food stylist, puppy mom, and cocktail enthusiast. When I’m not in the kitchen or studio, I prefer to spend my time outdoors. My husband, silly pitbull pup, and I reside in Baltimore, where we spend the weekends scouring the local restaurant scene and feasting on delicious food. Old Bay runs through our veins, and the water is our refuge from the hustle and bustle.
