Branded Love Vendor Spotlight | Win a Full Mentoring Package or Portfolio Review with Jen Davis

Jen Davis, Photography by Jen Davis

A bit about Jen:
I am a natural light, lifestyle photographer based out of Princeton, NJ. I am also a mom, wife, friend, teacher, playground connoisseur, coffee addict and wine lover. {though the order changes on any given day}. I take at least one photo of my kids It involves lots of lollipops.

What made you decide you wanted to be a photographer?
I know I am in good company when I say this, the birth of my first child. She lit up my world, and opened me up to seeing things ‘differently’. She still has this effect on me. I have been told that I have a good eye, but I was always kind of intimidated to pick up the camera and try to capture what I envisioned. I always thought it would be better in my head. I still can picture that first time the straight out of camera shot matched my vision. I was giddy.

How would you describe your photography style?
Fresh, fun, playful.
and at if I am being honest….sometimes moody, especially in my black and white images. Because it’s real life.

What kind of camera do you shoot with?
Canon 5D Mark iii

What is your favorite lens?
Depends on if I am inside or out. 35mm inside. 85mm or the 70-200mm outside.

What are a few things you wish you would have known when starting your own business?
That you cannot be everyone’s photographer. Develop, love and own your personal style. Put out there into cyberspace your style of imagery…and the clients who value that style will find you.

What tip would you give aspiring photographers?
I firmly believe you should never stop growing. One of the best things that I ever did when I started was get a mentor. I have had a mentor in nearly every facet of my life and I am convinced that I became a better version of me, quicker, because of it. Every baby, child, family, and couple I’ve photographed has been instrumental in shaping who I am and my approach to photography. But let’s be honest. It’s virtually impossible to be objective about something as personal as your own artistic visions and approach. So, it’s important to get a gut check every now and again, seek out honest, yet helpful feedback, and guidance on fine-tuning your unique skills and style.
