    White Wave Photography
    Owner
    Hi I’m Jennie and I LOVE babies! Their smell, wrinkly little toes and adorable chubby cheeks just light up my soul and make me run straight for my camera.

    Although I’ve photographed many different people and events over my 15+ year career, my favorite clients are the smallest clients, which is why I specialize in maternity, birth and newborn photography. Capturing that rare and special moment a parent meets their baby for the first time is truly magical. I am so fortunate and honored that my birth clients invite me into such a personal time in their lives.

    If we work together, you can expect a relaxed and fun photo session. My goal is to have you and your family smiling and laughing with the first click of my camera.
