Hi there! My name is Jennifer and welcome to Pearl Lens Photography! So glad you are here and thank you for taking a few minutes to check out my site.

I am many things in this life…wife, momma, corporate desk jobber, & photographer!  I have been married to my wonderful hubby for over a decade and we have two beautiful little girlies and one very loud basset hound.  My photography utilizes natural light, is focused on family and children, and located in western Chicago suburbs. 

Why the name Pearl Lens? Well mostly because Jennifer Lynn sounds so…80’s!  Anyway, pearl is my birthstone so my older brother gave me the nickname “Pearl” when we were little. And I hated it. Then. But now, for this. It seems right. So combine that with a long time love of photography and BAM! Pearl Lens Photography.

Since having a family of my own, my love for photography has only boomed and turned into a passion… There is such joy in capturing our real moments, connections, and emotions…whether good, happy, sad, proud…all the little times that make up our lives. It is so fun to sit with my daughter even at her young age and look at “old” photos. She might enjoy it more than me! “Remember this mommy?” she says all the time.

That is what I want to help you capture. Remember that time? Remember that celebration? Remember that moment? Remember that emotion? Let’s capture it and tell the story of your life. Don’t let the memories become fuzzy in the busyness of life that can overwhelm us. Hand the story down and let it live on forever.

I’m hooked on this y’all! This is a new adventure and it has been challenging and sort of scary. But the support I’ve received from those around me has been crazy feel good stuff.

My primary area includes the far western Chicago, Illinois suburbs of South Elgin, St. Charles, & Geneva.

Thanks for checking out my site and I hope to hear from you soon! To learn more about what a session is like clickty-click here.
