"Your energy introduces you before you even speak."
i'm already dreaming of our session. YOU MAY THINK I'M JOKING, BUT I'M NOT.
MY NAME IS JENN WILSON, AND I'M A MICHIGAN-BASED LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHER IN THE DOWNRIVER & METRO DETROIT AREA. I SPECIALIZE IN AT-HOME NEWBORN SESSIONS & MATERNITY SESSIONS.
I'M A WIFE & MAMA TO TWO GIRLS. I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN DRAWN TO LIVE A CREATIVE, IMPERFECTLY PERFECT LIFE. i'm in love with photography and capturing real, authentic moments. as my girls grow i can now recognize how important these fleeting moments truly are. they're beautiful and bittersweet.
the cool thing about photography is the ability to stop time, just for a bit. these photos become our memories, and heirlooms. our story. and for that reason i feel it's important to keep them true-to-life but vibrant in color. what drew me to photography was the ability to create art using natural light. emotive b&w images speak to my soul.
i get to meet new people, and be invited in to their personal space. i try to make it a relaxed experience so you can just enjoy yourself while i capture the beauty and connection. so if any of this resonates with you i'd love to chat.

TRUST ME, I KNOW HOW MUCH YOU WANT TO HOLD ON TO EVERY SECOND.
BECAUSE I WANT TO ALSO. MY GIRLS KIERNAN & ABIGAIL ARE MY WORLD. AND I STARTED TO REALIZE, THIS WON'T BE FOREVER. IT'S A SINKING FEELING TO KNOW THAT ONE DAY MY HOUSE WILL BE QUIET, AND THEY WILL BE OFF ON THEIR OWN.
IT GIVES YOU A WHOLE NEW APPRECIATION FOR THOSE LITTLE MOMENTS, THE ONES YOU DESPERATELY HOPE YOU'LL NEVER FORGET.
Life is made up of all the tiny moments & adventures.
