Hello there! It’s nice to meet you, I’m Jennifer and I’m the one who’s going to take beautiful portraits for you. My grandmother once told me I never met a stranger - which allows me to be great at what I do. I always find it weird to talk about myself, but I’m not going to write about myself in the 3rd person and pretend that anyone else wrote this but me. Plus, you want to hire me to capture your loved ones, not date me, right? Fine then, I'll skip the part about what kind of wine I prefer. :)
I’m a bit of a goofball. I constantly trip over things and usually make a fool of myself. I’m not afraid to sing loud in public to calm down my kids and I’ll happily hit the dance floor for the hokey pokey given the opportunity. What does this mean for you? You’ll be surprised at the lengths I’ll go to make a child feel comfortable to get the perfect shot.
I’m a people person and very sensitive, but I have zero sense of direction. I think God took my sense of direction and gave me the intuition to read people. I can meet a child and immediately sense their personality in the first few minutes - I know when to be loud & excited and when to step cautiously.
I didn’t grow up taking pictures. I actually come from a dance background and I’ve taught ballet for what seems like forever - it’s like breathing to me. What does that mean for you? I’ve come from one area of the arts where I’ve excelled (both technically & artistically) and I would never attempt to sell a product of art unless I was confident in both its technical superiority and strength as art.
The Jennifer Mauren Photography studio is located in West Bradenton. Clients regularly travel from as far south as Punta Gorda and as far north as Odessa to come to my studio. I'm happy to meet the needs of loving families from Sarasota, Bradenton, St. Pete, Clearwater, Brandon, Tampa, and more!
Take a peek at my studio and a behind the scenes video of a newborn session! Made by the fabulous people at Walk West (Filmed by The Holderness Family: the viral video family behind #xmasjammies).
