Jennifer grew up in the suburbs just north of New York City. She got her first camera, to take to sleep-away camp, when she was 8 years old. She found the camp's small darkroom a cool, quiet refuge from the hot, sticky chaos of summer. Though she has outgrown her disdain for the outdoors, she will never outgrow her need to take pictures. Her work has appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, AARP.org, Culture: The Word on Cheese Magazine, The Bark and Light Leaks Magazine among others. When Jennifer is not out making pictures, she spends her time trying to keep up with her blog and working in her garden.
Throughout her career, she has been lucky enough to get some great assignments, meet people and see places she never would have been exposed to otherwise. After many years of employment with Village Voice Media's Riverfront Times, where she won numerous awards for her work, Jennifer recently launched her career as a freelance photographer, continuing to do assignment work for the alt-weekly and others, working on personal projects, and exhibiting and teaching as often as possible.
Jennifer currently makes St. Louis her home, where she lives with her husband, Joe, and their cat, Claire.
She is available for assignment work worldwide.
