“A photograph is the pause button of life.”
I have always been the one with the camera; the one who takes pictures of everything and documents each moment. I remember as early as 6th grade, I was bringing a camera to school and taking pictures of my friends at recess. Photos allow us to hold on to memories and remember those special moments.
I got my first “real” camera after my daughter was born 14 years ago and I haven’t stopped clicking. I wanted to document every milestone and didn’t want to miss a thing. I was the typical mom with the camera (and I still am, just a little better :) ). After a couple of years and thousands of pictures later, my friends began asking me to take their family Christmas photos, Sweet Sixteen photos, engagement photos…then more requests followed with pregnancy announcements, birthdays, soccer teams, business headshots, best friend photos, pets…I think you see the pattern.
After much encouragement and support, I officially launched Lindsay Jenks Photography in 2018 and my business has been a complete whirlwind of excitement and growth. Word of mouth has been an incredible source of business and also the most amazing compliment of my work. In addition to my personal business, I am also the featured photographer for STROLL neighborhood magazine and I was also the official photographer for Scottsdale City Lifestyle Magazine for 2.5 years. I feel so fortunate to call this "work" and I am truly doing my dream job!
I am a natural light photographer which means I don’t use a flash so I pay extremely close attention to the light around us. We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful place that dazzles us with the most amazing sunsets (which is also my favorite time of day to shoot). While I do love the classic poses, I absolutely LOVE to capture the authentic and candid moments. My goal is to give your photos feeling by making you feel relaxed, comfortable and confident enough to be yourself, while also making you look amazing at the same time. After all, that is the goal, right?!
My passion and specialty are child and family portraits. As a wife and mom of two myself, I know how quickly our kids grow and change. It’s important to hit that pause button and freeze those special moments in time. As your children and family grow, I want to grow with you year after year and continue capture those memories for you.
