How cute is this family of 3. As usual I always love to meet new families. The Barrett family is another wonderful Hensel Phelps family. I always feel like when I come across a HP family I feel like we could be come instant friends because they know exactly what life is like especially one who is on the same project as my husband.
For the Barrett’s mini session we went up to Lake Baldwin Park which was the perfect setting for this family session. Logan was just the cutest and he worked for M&M’s ssshhh don’t tell Logan but I sometimes work for M&Ms too! We had fun seeing the airplanes flying over head and check to see if there were any alligators in the water. We had so much fun getting some great shots of this family and I hope to get to work with them again in the future.
Hi everyone my name is Jennifer. I know what you all are thinking, there already is a place for you to learn about me, but I wanted to just write a blog that kind of told you more.
So lets start at the very beginning… its a very good place to start. Ok I know you are all breaking out in song just like me right…ok maybe not. Anyways like I said my name is Jennifer Rupprecht I was born and raised a Hoosier lived there for 24 years of my life. Though you might find it interesting to know I am not and IU fan. I am a Michigan State Spartans fan. Long story short I have family that live in Michigan and they are Michigan State fans and have drilled into me from a young age all things Spartan! I have a degree from Indiana State University in Radio/TV/Film and I worked 10 years in the news business. I did everything from running the telepromptor, graphics, studio camera, and editing, but I would have to say my favorite job was as a photographer/multimedia journalist. I met my now husband back in 2005 at Indiana State, most of our dating life was long distance. He finished school a semester before me and moved to Oklahoma. We were together 4 years before he finally proposed to me and then it was another year before we got married. So basically we had been together 5 years before we ever said I DO. Fast forward almost 3 years we were living in Arizona and both well into our careers him in Construction me in News when we had our oldest child Taylor who is now 3. We decided it was best that I become a stay at home mom which I love because I was able to be there for all the big milestones. 9 months into her life we picked up and moved to Northern California where a year later we welcomed our youngest child Kyle who is almost 18 months. Now with these kids came a lot of pictures I mean a lot. (Maybe I share too much who knows who cares) Well for Christmas my husband got me a brand new Sony A6000 mirrorless DSLR and I was so excited because it meant that maybe I could still continue my career of telling stories. I loved getting to go interview people and learning about them and then hopefully do their story justice. We currently reside in Saint Cloud Florida where I am working on getting my business off the ground.
I have found out through trial and error that my nitch in this little photography business is lifestyle because I am doing exactly what I did when I worked in my career I was telling someone’s story. Do you ever look at a picture and wonder what someone is thinking. You know the saying a picture can say a 1000 words, well that is exactly what I am going for in my sessions. Some might think well I still want that Portrait photography, great we can take a couple of shots where everyone is looking at the camera, but then we can get some candid of your family doing whatever it is that you love doing!
I hope that this post helped you to maybe get to know me a little better and I can’t wait capture a day in your life whether it be Maternity, Newborn, Baby, Children, or your family. I am excited to start telling your story!
