Family Pictures with Jennifer Jens Photography

Make sure to check out my friend Jennifer’s photography page and consider her for your family pictures – she also does lifestyle photography, newborns, birthdays, weddings, birth, and much more.  You can see a sampling of her work in this post!  Check out her website to see more!

I love this time of year!  Christmas is in the air.  Magic is everywhere… And Christmas cards arrive from friends afar…

Mike and I have been sending photo Christmas cards since we were married over 14 years ago.  The cards got much cuter when we had kids 6 years into our marriage!

For years we took our own photos.  One year we set up the tripod and took pictures with a toddler and a baby by the Christmas tree – those pictures were so full of bloopers – it was priceless!

However, when we took the plunge and hired a professional photographer – there was no turning back!

We’ve had a few different photographers take our pictures over the years, but when one of my best friends started her business, we’ve been using her ever since!  Read the story of how God brought my friend Jen into my life here.

Jen also took Valentine’s pictures of the boys that year.  Here’s one of my favorites!

That year, our family photo had an announcement to make…

The following year we had a little Princess who needed many pictures…

There are many more wonderful pictures, but I can’t show them all!  I hope you liked these as much as I do!

  1. So enjoyed all the pictures this year, darling
    Amy. Your little ones are not so little now, and they will love to have another little one to hug and love. Thanksgiving together was wonderful, and watching the children interact, enjoy each other, and cousin’s time was so sweet. Sending Blessings to all of you.
