If you’re anything like me, your why has to do with connection
I haven’t always been an artist or a photographer/videographer. But I’ve always been a people person.
There are two times in my life where I felt so vulnerable I could hardly stand it: first, after I had my son. Second, after I started my business. Putting something out into the world takes serious guts. I’m determined to connect with and serve people who are doing just that.
I’m Jenny, I’m a mom and a creative business owner, and I honestly can’t wait to hear your story.
After an idyllic childhood in the suburbs of San Francisco, I went to photography school at Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara. After graduating without a darn clue about what I wanted to do with my photography and videography, I pursued other interests (read: acroyoga) and had my son about a year and a half after graduating.
I’m currently raising my son and growing my business in Pilot Hill, California, near Sacramento. I live in the country now and have a love for all the wildlife we see out here, especially the peacocks! My days start at 5:30am (ish) with coffee and prayer and usually end with dinner with my parents.
My vision for Kinship is to open a studio/client meeting space/workspace/maybe even a little bit of a boutique, that also serves as a community hub. I envision hosting viewing parties for films I make, networking events, gallery showings with local artists, workshops and classes, all of it!
becoming a mom changed the game
I became a mother at 24, unexpectedly. My little guy changed my world, flipped my priorities, and has made me question everything I thought I knew about myself - in the best way. August is three years old now and his dad and I are in a long distance relationship. I know, I can’t believe it either.
