Meet Jen

Where did you grow up?

Here in Lincoln.

Tell us about your family.

I've been married to my husband, Eric, for 15 years and we have a 12 year old son, Sam, who makes us laugh hysterically and 10 year old daughter, Emma who's creative and sweet as pie.


When did you fall in love with photography?

My grandparents took me on a trip at the end of 3rd grade to visit some family, see lots of U.S. sites and then go up into Canada. They let me take a million pictures and I still treasure those today. I've been taking pictures ever since.


Why are you excited to be part of Emily Hardy Photography? I first started working with Emily a few years ago as the studio manager and an occasional second photographer. While I love taking photos and working with clients, my true passion is storytelling so I'm excited to be back on the team sharing the stories of what our team does and how it impacts the lives of our clients.


How would you describe Emily?

Emily is creative, experienced, dedicated to her art, full of ideas and so very good at capturing the moments people most want to remember.


What are three words your friends would use to describe you?

Creative. Encouraging. Thoughtful.


What are you most passionate about?

My faith and my family. Our family loves to travel and we're trying to get to all 50 states together. Each year we take a giant road trip - seeing all the sites, being in the great outdoors and eating all the things - and we're up to 47 states.


What's your favorite thing to do with your family photos?

I love having photos displayed around our house. Even those when my kids are younger give a sense of history, memories made and remind my kids that they are loved.
