It’s hard to believe that 2017 is behind us…

I started off the year with winter family photos and even took my camera to the MN Women’s March in January. I absolutely love journalistic style photography so it was fun stepping back and documenting the morning/afternoon with all the marchers/supporters.

I took the Summer off from photography to be home with my kids full-time. I did have a few photography sessions/wedding that were previously scheduled so it was a nice break to get out every once and a while. We also moved in July to the ‘burbs so I spent a lot of my time searching for locations to take clients… I’m happy to report that the ‘burbs ain’t so bad… & actually really pretty. ;)

Fall was full of wild weather, 5 days of Mini-Sessions, & a little vacation for my family up in Vancouver, BC. I always say that I’ll cut back in the Fall season but it’s so difficult saying no to getting out in the Fall leaves with so many wonderful families.

This year I also started a volunteering position with Haven Housing in Minneapolis where I’ve been able to meet and photograph many of the amazing women & kiddos that reside there. It has been truly a blessing to get to know the amazing staff and families at Haven Housing and I look forward to spending more time there in 2018.

Starting this month I will be volunteering through a hospice program as a photographer for any of the families that want photos taken with their loved one who is in hospice care. One of the things that I wished I would have done when my Dad passed away last year was to have taken more photos with him and of him. Photographs have been so healing for me through my grieving process so I hope that it can help others, as well.

Now that my boys are both in school I’m doing a lot of reflecting on anything that I want to change for my business going into the New Year. I have a lot of goals that I’d like to work towards this year but I’ll save talking about that for later. ¬†Current business news… I will be offering a Winter Documentary Session special through March… Full Sessions (1 hour) will be $100 off and Mini Sessions (30 minutes) will be $50 off. Either sessions can be used in-home or at a Twin Cities outdoor location. If you’d like to book, please send a note to info@jenmeneghinphotography.com

So, thank you… thank you… THANK YOU… for your continuous love and support! Every single person I get to work with means so much to me and like I said before, it is an honor to photograph your family. Enjoy some of my favorite images from the year below… in complete random order.
