You want an experience. An artist who listens.
A Detail Oriented Artist
Hello, my name is Jen Keim and I look forward to being your photographer.
Specializing in portraits. I create space for your thoughts and feelings in consultations for collaboration and a stress-free plan that enhances your experience and the final portrait(s) you love, no matter your body type or age, posing all curves, from your toes to eyes, a perfect relaxed family portrait, or rocking lingerie (or less).
Attention to detail is why I love complimentary consultations. We can determine your needs, from an express family portrait in 15 minutes or our 4-hour session with hair, makeup, multiple locations and outfits. Chat about your identity, décor, and how to create a cohesive session that represents you and your needs for printing.
As an artist with style, your photographs are not run through a filter and delivered to an online gallery. They are hand-edited and curated for you. With the intention of how you want your portraits enjoyed whether a single iconic piece or in an album to be handled and enjoyed with love.
If you are looking to purchase wall art we offer a complimentary session with Belen Interiors included with wall art purchases over 24″
You can feel confident in looking your best. Hiring a Luxury Photographer is an investment in memories that last a lifetime.
Express Family Portraits.
These are perfect for busy families or professionals. Planning of wall art sizing and outfits are chosen before your session. I am happy to come to your home or remotely design wall art mockups before and after your session as well as help with any outfit or location options.
Photoshoot day. I will go head to the location of choice or studio, set up lighting and backdrops if required where I plan to have your 1-3 poses and await your arrival. 2-10 minutes depending on stress levels to relax and I will casually get you into position while chatting adjusting lighting if needed (even if it’s to allow more
time to relax). Once stress levels are good I will finalize posing and take your portrait with 2-3 variations in that pose, at this stage people are moving more freely and we can photograph 2 additional independent poses offering you a range to choose from as your final wall art, photographs for family, or customized addressed holiday cards.
You can choose to have a reveal right away straight out of the camera, with a second one with your finished portraits for fun. Or I can curate and edit my top 4-12 choices depending on your end goal for displaying or album design. Portraits of your choice are fully edited including head swaps, so all children do not need to be smiling at the same time, and created with heirloom quality on any of our options.
Full Photoshoot Day
Often includes up to 4 hours of the photographer’s time, including multiple make-up and hairstyling looks, and outfits. Multiple session types are welcomed such as family/boudoir or having a full extended family session with individual groupings.
You can choose to have a reveal right away straight out of the camera, with a second one with your finished portraits for fun. Or I can curate and edit my top 15-40 choices depending on your end goal for displaying or album design.
Editing is a 4-week turnaround with most of the suppliers being an additional 5-week turnaround with shipping. So if you are planning on an artwork gift please book ahead by 2-3 months.
All images receive a professional level of hands-on editing left to Jen’s discretion, with additional retouching and rush service available at additional cost.
Reveal day is an exciting part! Bring anyone who will help decide on portraits and budget or friends who amp you up to feel beautiful. It’s your day to shine.
On the reveal day of your finished portraits, we will finalize any wall art, album, and gift orders. If you are purchasing as a gift for someone who is present, please inform us ahead if you wish for discretion in your order. Schedule 20-1.5 hours depending if you have had a straight-out-of-camera purchase or this is your first time seeing your photographs.
Most artworks are a 5-week wait once placed. Updates are provided when your order arrives and if there are any delays. After the quality check, we can hand-deliver to residents within Prince George area and are able to help with installation.

Best Professional Shots EVER! -Amy Hudson
