Jenny Pierson displays photos in August

Rensselaer August, 2014Jenny Pierson

Since the hot pink 110 camera I had at 8 years old I have been taking photographs. I was hooked. I loved that I could freeze a moment in time with just one click of the shutter. I went on in high school to learn the technical side of photography. I knew that I wanted to be a professional photographer and learn all I could about it.
Throughout the years my passion and drive never wavered. I continued to take various photography classes throughout my adult life. In between having children and running a house, documenting my life through photos became even more important to me. I have built up a client base in the last few years. I am a lifestyle photographer specializing in families, newborns, children, and weddings.
