My name is Jen Madigan and I'm a newborn and family lifestyle photographer based in Cleveland, OH and Iowa City, IA. I spend a big chunk of my year traveling for sessions all over the US, and I wouldn't have it any other way!

I'm obsessed with my mini labradoodle Luna (nickname: Bear), Diet Coke, stripes, and brand new socks. I'm an enneagram one, oldest child, and can't fall asleep without listening to a podcast. Do we have anything in common?

I believe that dogs are people too, weekends are for sleeping in, and shopping should be a sport.

Do we have anything in common?


I have three tattoos.



"Jen has taken photos for my family and children for years! She has the ability to bring out all the “real” and capture true stiff, awkward family photos.. A talented photographer is more than just being able to work a camera, it’s connecting with people in a real way to make them feel comfortable and relaxed! So thankful for Jen and her talent!"

-kayla j.


"You must hire Jen! I never knew that hiring a photographer could lead to such a relationship. I met Jen when she photographed my newborn daughter. My daughter is now almost 6 and I have never hired a different photographer. I can't imagine Jen not photographing our family! Each session is an experience I will never forget. It's so much more than the incredible photos! She helps us create intimate family memories during every session and I'm forever thankful that she is in my family's life!"

-holly b.


"I absolutely loved both of my newborn sessions with Jen. With my second child, I was so excited to schedule them with Jen that I told her before I told some of my family. She made me feel beautiful and captured our family perfectly. I have had so many people tell me how jealous they are of my photos. Looking back, I’m so glad we have pictures of the entire family."

-Jessie K.


"Jen is an incredibly talented photographer! I have never worked with a photographer who is so consistent in capturing and producing the most beautiful images! She just captures the magical moments in the prettiest light EVERY TIME! She is also a wonderful person!! She is kind, patient and just a ton of fun to hang out with while she's taking your families photos! We moved away from Jen a couple years ago but still do all we can to make sure she can take our families photos every year!"

-coelle s.


"Jen is so wonderful. We cannot recommend her more highly. Her pictures are so beautiful and she is so lovely and wonderful to work with. We loved our newborn pictures so much that we had her come back to do 6 month pictures with our son. She makes you feel at ease, goes with the flow (fussy newborn, broken AC, wild dog) and just shoots gorgeous pictures you will cherish for a lifetime. So happy we found her!"

-Laura C.

I offer one main wedding collection which is 8 hours, which includes getting ready at the church, the first look, time for formal/traditional family photos, ceremony pictures, pictures between the ceremony/reception at a third location if desired, and the important things at the reception (first dance, cake cutting, mother/son and father/daughter dance, bouquet toss, garter toss). It also includes all of the high resolution images from your day, because I believe those images should be yours to keep.

I work with all of my couples on the day of timeline to be sure we have ample time for all of those important moments throughout the wedding day. 

My pricing includes travel within a 30 mile radius of the Iowa City area. A mileage fee of .50/mile will be added on for locations outside the 30 mile radius. 

My wedding menu is built so that you can custom build a package that meets your needs on your special day! My basic collection includes a second shooter, as I believe having two photographers is paramount to capturing all of those special moments. 

I offer heirloom quality albums as an add on option, which are a great way to showcase your wedding photos for generations to come. These albums feature lay flat pages, and custom layouts designed to tell your story as it unfolded that day!

A $1000 non-refundable retainer is required at the time of booking to secure the date (and goes toward the collection price), with the remainder due 1 month prior to the wedding date.
