Winter and snow provides a gorgeous setting for portraits due to the incredible light and reflection.  If we can get past the chill (hence the short session time), you'll love the results of beautiful, timeless and real portraits we create.

This is ideal for a child/children, teen/tweens, adults, couples, maternity and families.

This will take place on a weekend in January 2016, if not February when desirable weather conditions are known. When the ideal weather is known, I will make an announcement on JBP’s social media outlets and will contact those who express interest to me directly.

Hello and happy summer to all!

I can't believe we are already half way through the year, yikes!  Although I am thoroughly enjoying spending time summering it up with my family and friends, I can't help but think my busy season of late summer and fall is just around the corner!

August, September and October are always incredibly exciting and busy with high school senior portraits, a wedding, personal projects and family portrait sessions. 

I have limited availablility now thru October, so I recommend scheduling your anticipated portrait sessions or photography needs as soon as possible.

For those of you who have asked or possibly interested, I will be offering one fall mini-session in Milwaukee in early-mid October and one in Verrado, AZ (Phoenix area) mid/late November. Details on those mini-sessions will be announced on the blog and social media outlets.

Take care, enjoy the weather and I hope to connect with you for your photography/portrait needs in the near future!

1-2  Fine Art Nude Female Model/s needed.

With a little break in my schedule, I've decided to take advantage of a creative project I'm working on.  This means, I'm in need of 1-2 female models who are available to shoot on Sunday, February 8th in Milwaukee, WI.

This shoot is not a boudoir shoot.  These images will include the form of various poses, shapes, curves and lines of the human body.

Must be over the age of 18.  A signed model release is required for the selected model.  In exchange for modeling, the selected model will receive numerous edited high resolution digital files with print release after the project is complete.

If you know someone who would be interested in modeling for this project or are interested in being a model yourself, please email jennifer-erin@live.com and include:

  • Subject line - MODEL
  • Full name
  • Age/date of birth
  • Your contact information and best time to reach you
  • A current full length snapshot (clothed)

Model/s will be notified via email with more details if selected for this project.

Thank you in advance!


In celebration of...

Day of the Dead (Día de Muertos) 

Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday observed throughout Mexico and around the world in other cultures. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died.

My girls

A few weeks ago, I had some fun shooting head shot of my daughters.  Of all places, these were shot right on the side of our driveway.  Sometimes, the least likely location shows a ray of light and to me, that becomes time to play!  Enjoy!!
