Authentic and heartfelt family portraiture in Wiesbaden, Germany




Relationships. Stories. And something beautiful.

Lewis Family Website-10.jpg

If you live your life OUT LOUD, then I want to capture your story.

This is your story, and I want to capture every BEAUTIFUL, MESSY minute of it! Life goes by so quickly. Children grow before our eyes. Minutes turn to hours. Days turn into years. And before we know it, our favorite moments have turned into tales that are told over glasses of wine and lots of laughter!

If you LOVE HARD and LAUGH LOUDLY, I want to be there to weave your story into tangible moments that will be passed on for generations. Documenting REAL lives, REAL love is where I find my inspiration. There are no forced poses or unreasonable requests asked of your children. I want you to just BE. Just BE YOURSELVES and LOVE and LIVE like no one is watching! If you are drawn to the authentic, raw honesty of LIVES TRULY lived, we can make some magic together.

I can’t wait to meet you and hug you and laugh with you! We will focus on your relationships and reminisce about what makes them uniquely yours. We will laugh and share stories, tickles, hugs, and kisses.

The time to own your story is NOW. Now is the time to document your lives so the future generations will have tangible memories to hold while they tell the stories. You are beautiful NOW. Your family is perfect NOW. You deserve to exist in photos with your babies. And there’s no better time then now.


"I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people."

- Vincent Van Gogh

No need to to look any further for a photographer, Jenelle is IT! It was truly an easy and effortless session for myself and my husband and our little puppy ❤️ It was all of our first time taking professional photos and it was so fun and captured us exactly as I wanted. ONE MILLION STARS! AMAZING! We WILL be booking AGAIN SOON!


We have experience with quite a few photographers and Jenelle ranks high, if not highest on our list as far as experience and quality!
We did a session out of our comfort zone, in home lifestyle, and she made it so easy and fun and our photos were terrific! Her love of what she did shone through! We booked a second session with her right away! 
I so wish we had discovered her a long time ago, as we are moving soon.


I had went on Jenelle’s page a while ago and loved her artwork back then. Finally we were able to shoot with her and it did not even feel like we were on a photo appointment. She’s very professional and so far from the usual “Stop - now smile” Photographer - which was just perfect for us. We literally have memories made! Thank you lots!


Jenelle has captured photos for both my business and also my family on multiple occasions. She respects and values your time and is always super prepared for her sessions. She delivers her photos in a timely manner and doesn’t ever leave you hanging. You won’t be disappointed in hiring Jenelle — her raw, candid, and as she likes to call it “emotive” photos are unique and priceless. If your are looking for a photographer who fits this tall order, look no further.


Best family photographer! Hands down! Jenelle is so great to work with. She loves kids and kids love her. My kids were so at ease during the session. She was able to capture our family the way we truly are; fun and loving. I will cherish our memories in Germany forever thanks to Jenelle and her art.
