Cleveland Newborn Photographer | Jen Madigan

hi friend!

I'm Jen!

i'm a photographer, dog mom, STripe enthusiast, and former nanny.

As a child, one of my favorite things was looking through photo parent's wedding, me sitting on my grandma's lap on a Sunday afternoon, or the excitement of Christmas morning. I love how photography can instantly take you to a time or place, almost like you could reach out and touch it. It's amazing to me how raw and real photography can be, how it preserves a moment forever.
