I mean really, who doesn't?!?
But seriously, I'm so glad you're here! I'm Jen Madigan and I'm a lifestyle photographer based just outside of Cleveland, OH, and I also spend a large portion of my time in my former hometown of Iowa City, IA. When I'm not in either of those places, I'm busy traveling as much as possible - I'm basically what you'd call a "creative nomad".
And, I'm the oldest of 6 kids. So you could say I am comfortable with children. I have lots of tricks up my sleeve to snag great photos of your kiddos being themselves, and if all else fails I've got no shame in defaulting to fart jokes. What can I say, they're just funny, even if you're not a 6 year old boy.
Moms, I'm talking to you. I get it, life is busy and it’s easier just to only have to find outfits for the kids. But your kids want photos with you. They aren’t going to look at those photos and see the ten lbs. you *thought* you needed to lose, they’re gonna see how you loved them hard. That’s the stuff they’ll see in 20, 30, 50 years. And someday their kids will see it too. So just do it already.
