Close second to that is the documenting of the baby bump....especially in really pretty light. When I get to do both its icing on the cake... I love mixing both sessions together to tell a little visual story of baby. Here are some favorites. ©JenDzen Photography©JenDzen Photography ©JenDzen Photography©JenDzen Photography ©JenDzen Photography©JenDzen Photography ©JenDzen Photography©JenDzen Photography ©JenDzen Photography©JenDzen Photography ©JenDzen Photography©JenDzen Photography

A Wedding Day || Bay Area Wedding Photographer http://www.jendzen.com/blog/2017/10/a-wedding-day-bay-area-wedding-photographer There is not much to say about this day that can't be seen below. It was a beautiful day packed with love and happiness. A day they will talk about with friends and family for the rest of their lives. It was an honor to document their story.

Here are some of my favorites...

Hospital to Home || Lamorinda Newborn Photographer http://www.jendzen.com/blog/2017/9/hospital-to-home-lamorinda-newborn-photographer Should I get a hospital session, or a home session?

Well, you should get both! I'll try to tell you why. This sweet family invited me to the hospital to meet their sweetest new baby just hours after his birth. It was a less than ideal scenario that I walked into. They ended up in a SHARED hospital room with no windows, just one (yellow) light above the bed, no space to move. All they had was a bed in the corner, a very small chair and a lovely green curtain separating them from their neighbors. Honestly, I was nervous, and wasn't entirely sure how it would turn out!....But guess what? None of those things mattered because they had the sweetest new baby in their arms and the best big brother and sister beaming with pride. All together as close as could be. Yes, I had to sit in the sink for a couple shots, I had to use the ugliest light known to man, and I didn't have beautiful backdrops, but I did it anyways, and mom thanked me many times over for capturing these first moments that were a whirlwind for her living it. Had we decided the circumstances would control our decision to do the session, this family would not have these photos to look back on; photos that recreate the memories of their first hours with their youngest baby...   

©JenDzen Photography©JenDzen Photography ©JenDzen Photography©JenDzen Photography ©JenDzen Photography©JenDzen Photography ©JenDzen Photography©JenDzen Photography  Home at last, home at last......And, here is where ill try and convince you that you should also get a home session! :)

Here you are, finally home from your less than ideal hospital stay and somewhat settled (lets be real, settled? With a newborn? ha!!) But really though, the rest of the family is comfortable, they can go about their day when I'm not photographing them. I hang out, I chat, I get my baby fix...oh, this isn't about me?? ok, YOU, get to relax! Your photo session does not need to be stressful; in fact, it should be fun and relaxing. You don't have to do anything but love on your baby and cuddle with your family at home. If siblings (and/or dad!) won't  participate, they can take a break. I roll with the punches, i read your family dynamic, and help to create family moments and capture the love that is there even when it may need some enticing to bring out. Point being, they are very different sessions and both equally important. These moments in time are very few in life, why not document them ALL?

Sunny California Maternity Session || Orinda Maternity and Newborn Photographer http://www.jendzen.com/blog/2017/4/sunny-california-maternity-session-orinda-photographer With the abundance of rain we've had this year came the abundance of green grass, and even some early wildflowers here in the East Bay hills! No better backdrop to stick this beautiful expecting couple in to dance into the sunset. They were so cute together, feeling for baby kicks, enjoying each others company, and soaking in their surroundings. They even included a special family blanket which will be passed along to this baby one day...

Here are some favorites as we wait patiently for their little one to arrive.

Foggy Engagement | Bay Area Photographer http://www.jendzen.com/blog/2017/2/foggy-engagement-bay-area-photographer

Let me start by saying, I was so excited when I was asked to shoot this sweet engagement session! I've known this guy since the 8th grade when my family moved in down the block from his. I have so many fond memories from the days of running wild through the neighborhood without a care in the world, getting into trouble, and most of all laughing like mad. I hadn't met his fiancé before, but I knew she must be special, And I was Right! She's so GREAT and together they are PERFECT!   

    

So, fast forward to the day of our shoot...."This weather is terrible....its pouring, its foggy, and it doesn't look like it will let up. Should we still go out?" 

I have to admit, I wasn't 100% confident, but I said yes anyways. 

So we grabbed the umbrellas and went on an adventure! 

.....


So the next time weather is in question...will it be a total fail? I say....

"Bring me ALL the nasty weather!!! 

 

Thanks J & A for trusting me !

 

XOXO

Jen

I've known this amazing lady for more than half my life and have watched her succeed in a lot of things in her life, but I couldn't be more proud of her and the way she's handled her journey into motherhood. It's been beautiful to watch and an honor to capture....here are some from early on.   

 

And, just a little reminder about how awesome indoor sessions can be!!

Girl, Girl, BOY || Walnut Creek Newborn Photographer http://www.jendzen.com/blog/2016/10/girl-girl-boy-walnut-creek-newborn-photographer I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing this beautiful (seriously...BEAUTIFUL) family, and let me tell you....it was wild!

A real life kind of wild that I wouldn't trade for anything. I love newborn sessions for that very reason.

They are never the same, they are never easy, but they are always precious and so full of emotion; this one was no exception.

 

Here are some of my favorites.....Bring me more babies!

 

And, a special thank you to this wonderful family for inviting me into their home

Little Country Wedding || Bay Area Wedding Photographer http://www.jendzen.com/blog/2016/8/little-country-wedding-bay-area-wedding-photographer Today I'm taking it back to this cute little country wedding I photographed back in May!

This adorable couple said 'I do' at the center tree of an olive grove on the grounds of Joyful Ranch in Vacaville, Ca.

Complete with a beautiful historic Victorian home to get ready in, and a barn to dance the night away, it was a Joyful occasion indeed!

Here are just a few favorites from their big day! 

 

And they lived happily ever after!

Botanical Engagement || Bay Area Wedding Photographer http://www.jendzen.com/blog/2016/8/botanical-engagement-bay-area-wedding-photographer When I got the request for an engagement session in a botanical setting with a greenhouse I was stoked (to put it lightly). Bonus excitement came from knowing this lovely lady from high school days, though I'd never met her adoring and handsome other half. I knew she would look gorgeous but I had no idea just how cute these two would be together!

I searched and searched for the perfect location, and really, they did the rest! Just look at these lovebirds <3 

    

 

 

 
 
 

Congratulations on your engagement and thank you for letting me play a little part in this special time in your lives <3

I wish you a lifetime of love, and happiness

XOXO

Sweet Newborn Session || Walnut Creek Newborn Photographer || http://www.jendzen.com/blog/2016/8/sweet-newborn-walnut-creek-photographer If you follow my work you can see that I love to photograph pretty much everything, but newborns are a favorite of mine! Not just because they are cute, but because they are never easy (yep, thats a reason why I LOVE them) I do these sessions in my clients homes where THEY are most comfortable, but I am not! I walk in having no idea what the conditions will be. Will there be light? Will there be good space to work with? Will the parents be comfortable and natural with me around? Will baby sleep for me? If there are siblings, will they cooperate at a time when they have just been hit with a huge change in their lives? I really love working my way through all of these challenges. It puts my skills to the test and results in every session being unique.

 

Most of the time I get so lucky and end up with families like this one! They have a beautiful home and the love for one another shined through.

Here are some of my favorites! 

 

 

 

 

             

          

 

Thanks to all the families that trust me with these special moments <3 They go by too quickly to not capture them!  

 

Don't forget! Print them, enjoy them, share them!

xoxo

Wedding Inspiration || Bay Area Wedding Photographer http://www.jendzen.com/blog/2016/7/wedding-inspiration-bay-area-wedding-photographer If you're planning your wedding here in the California Bay Area you have so many amazing resources at your disposal!

Here are just a few fun ideas for you! All local vendors are noted throughout, and links can be found at the bottom of this post! 

<3<3<3

 

First, let me just say I'm a sucker for old barns and all the treasures found in and around them! The textures and tones are a photographers dream, so don't forget to include ample time for them in your busy timeline ;) How about hiring an organizer to help you arrange your vendors, and coordinate your day? Check out Mariee Weddings! Renee is a sweetheart and she knows how to setup a beautiful day, just look below for proof! 

 

Now, introducing the beautiful Reinstein Ranch in Livermore, Ca. and some of its unique and beautiful textures and backdrops. 

 

 

Of course, you can't have a wedding without flowers, right? How about artichokes, turnips, apples and pomegranates?!? Yes, please!!

Farm to Table not your style? How about this beautiful classic setup?

 

Important question: Have you ever been to a wedding without alcohol? I haven't......

Head over to this classy lounge area stocked with scotch...Ill take one!

All florals by The Bloom Bar, Table settings/Rentals by Pleasanton Rentals, Invites by Twig & Fig

 

Of course, you'll need signage to inform your guests of all the details!!! How cute is this little cocktail menu by Lefty Lady Chalk Shop?!? Super cute!

 

Next question: Are you unsure if you want to wear a veil?

Photographer votes yes, at least for some photos ;) They add a little extra interest, texture and flow, and they're really fun for your bridal portraits.

To add, what other time in your life will you get the chance to wear one?? Answer, Never ;)
