That is my passion- capturing life and the richness it holds.   Our moments together are a gift, and I want to craft images that show the emotion, beauty and joy between the people you share life with. I cherish the photos I have had taken with my  family over the years and am reminded of sweetness of our relationships with one another. This recent one with my daughter is a favorite I will treasure. 

Taking an image,
freezing a moment,
reveals how rich reality truely is- 

about Me

I have always loved art, photos and design even as a young kid.  I remember loving the the way photos looked in magazines and the colors in pictures. This art instinct followed me as I grew and studied both photography and art in college. I started photographing jobs on the side and gained experience.
After a year or two of part time photo work,  I decided to pursue my passion fully and opened Jen Snyder Design in 2008. Since then, I have enjoyed photographing kids, couples, families, tiny babies and people just loving life together. I reside in the Cincinnati Area with my very tall husband and two goofy sweet kids. 

it all started with a love of colors and magazine pictures-

I love doing documentary style newborn sessions because they more relaxed and easy for both you and your new, sweet baby. These sessions are done in the comfort of your own home.  I still use natural light, but will find the brighter window sources available instead of using light sets and flash.  Instead of lots of posed styled baby shots, I shoot more of a narrative style capturing your new baby connecting with your family.  I do take some solo newborn shots, but again will be softer and more natural sleeping and awake shots. 

 This shoot typically runs about 1.5 hours (1 hour of shooting and half hour if needed for feeding, soothing, and diaper changing) Session fee time is $200 plus tax. Prints and high resolution images are sold separate. Feel free to contact me for more pricing and session details.

Photography is a way of feeling, touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever. It remembers the little things long after you have forgotten.
