Jennifer McNeil

Photographer, Mother, and Wife – Southern California

The day my nephew was born, I fell in love. It was my first time being an auntie! Of course I had seen, and held, and even photographed babies before, but it wasn’t until I was able to make that bond for myself that I truly grasped the importance of capturing those first days of life and the miracles that these small humans create. In the years since he was born, I have photographed over 3,000 clients and their families and I have seen an abundance of love. This makes me more happy than I could ever put into words. Our first baby was welcomed into this world in March 2016 and our second in November 2018.  Capturing their milestones is something I cannot even put a value on.  It is priceless to look back on their images, and those of our family, sharing moments reflecting on where we all come from. 

Client Reviews:

“Jenn’s studio is beautiful, as is the park near her home where we did an outdoor shoot. Once in a while you get to come into contact with her husband and baby son, who are so adorable. Jenn is so professional and is highly skilled, but I loved being able to connect with her on a personal level too. She’s local, a mom, and has a down-to-Earth approach to photography that makes the whole event actually enjoyable instead of stressful. I’d recommend to anyone!” –Amanda
