Jenn's Nature Photography

I specialize in taking nature photos. My favorite things to photograph are mountains, flowers, waterfalls, and other landscapes.

That old quote, "To the mountains I go to lose my mind and find my soul" sums me up pretty well. Although the sunset was pretty much a bust, it was so great to be in the mountains again. Especially after everyone else left. The sounds of the forest lifted up and coyotes and owls said hello.

Shenandoah National Park

Point Reyes National Seashore is one of the more beautiful places I've visited in these United States. We just drove along the shore line but I'm sure there is far more to see and there are many trails to hike. It was incredibly windy while we were there and the lighting was not great... but there are spots we stopped at that are essential Point Reyes.

One is the tunnel of trees at the North District Ops Center. The second is a boat that is just there along the drive to the shore. I had seen numerous photos of both landmarks. It is hard to get anything unique so the fun is in the editing.

We did end up seeing elk and a coyote on our visit there which was exciting.

I am happy to announce that Rocket Frog Brewing Company has asked me to hang photos in their brewery. They are on display and available for purchase. We decided to go with waterfalls so currently there are five hanging on the walls. If you need a happy hour place, pre-game location, or just love craft beer, go check them out and see how my prints look framed and hanging on a wall.

Stay tuned for a “Meet the Artist” event!!

I finally had a chance to get back to Loudoun County Animal Services for photos. The first two are Sophie. Such a sweetheart and was a happy dog. She loved treats and would sit and smile for them.

The other dog, Waylon, got adopted by the time I finished editing. It’s no surprise because he was a gentle giant. I love it when they get adopted.

Driving the back roads to Shenandoah provides many opportunities for photos. One reason I arrived so late was because I kept stopping along Robinson River.

Just to finish out my Waterfall Week... #flashbackfriday to last year to Shenandoah National Park. I love these falls with high water and only found myself next to one snake.

Thank you to Piedmont Environmental Council for selecting one my photos for their Annual Report. This is the second year and I feel really proud. I’m definitely going to try for three years in a row!

Black and White Tuesday: Difficult Run. This is my favorite section of the trail.

Imagine having some time to sit here on a lovely day just passing the time with the Golden Gate Bridge, water gently crashing up on the rocks, and seeing the Marin Headlands in the distant. I could handle that.

Stepped out of nature and into San Francisco. The city is incredibly photogenic. This is the view of the city from the boat heading to Alcatraz Island.

Wildflowers of Virginia - just a few. The blue bells near me weren't quite blooming but hopefully will be today. Of course, daffodils aren't considered "wild" but I love that they pop up here and there along my favorite trail.

It is quite a sight to see the cherry blossoms set against a blue sky. Some tips for visiting DC during the spring:

1 - Stand to the right, walk to the left on escalators
2 - Do not pick the cherry blossoms. Breaking off even small branches damages the trees
3 - Be patient. People are everywhere
4 - Want a special photo. Arrive by 6:30 am and get your photos early.
5 - Stay off of places that are roped off or fenced off. It isn't an invitation to climb over fences.
6 - Use Metro and be prepared to walk.
7 - Come late in the afternoon and stay for sunset then walk the monuments at night. It's safe. And beautiful.

Sunrise in DC. Dedication and sleep deprivation are 2 keys to good photography. 😁

Just imagine how wonderful my photos would look on your walls. 3 metallic prints, spaced perfectly.

(Not my living room). 😊

Have you seen Alexandria Magazine laying around? If so, grab a copy and check it out for my photos. All butterfly photos are mine. I know I had posted the link but I finally was given copies of my own.

Beautiful sunrise in Washington DC.

This type of image would be perfect for metal prints. You can also select metallic printing for simple 11 x 14 prints. The metallic printing gives the image a beautiful shimmer.

Whether it’s streams, waterfalls, lakes, etc. I love shooting water. It is amazing to witness its power as it carves out a pathway through rocks and dirt. Keeping our waterways clean makes a huge difference. And proving clean water to people should be a top priority.
What’s your favorite water area?

I keep finding some gems from my session at Manassas National Battlefield. I am now offering metal prints which are incredible looking. They are easy to hang and give any home/office a modern look.

I went on a Walk With Locals event this past weekend. The focus was the Capitol so here are some different kind of images from me. My intent was to push them more into "art" than just regular photos. Viewing in full screen will give you the best experience.

How to Attract Butterflies to Your Garden

Something that gets asked of photographers at times is, "Have you been published?" And I am never quite sure what qualifies as "published". But I think that Alexandria Living Magazine definitely counts. A photographer friend is the photo editor and they selected a couple of my butterfly photos for this month's issue (I can't wait to get my copies). You can see one of them in the online article.

This is Johnny Cash. I am really enjoying my time photographing the animals at Loudoun County Animal Services - it’s very rewarding and I get to spend time with beautiful dogs like Johnny. Sometimes my eyes end up itchy or my asthma turns up but it’s worth it to try and help these wonderful creatures find a home.

National Geographic just hit 1 million followers on Instagram and are having a contest. I didn’t know what to post but this came to mind. It’s one of my favorite photos. I took it way back on “auto” and hardly knew how to edit it. This is a slight re-edit. I liked it so much, it’s hanging in my bedroom and even with being a newbie - it looks great. So this was my submission to #natgeo100contest

National Geographic Society

I'm still finding great shots of Kiki who modeled for me a few weeks ago. I really like this one because it is casual and in the moment. She was just talking with my daughter and having a moment. I'm still looking for more models for shoots. If you or someone you know are interested, please reach out to me.

Here are more of my photos of Lily. We got some shots with Animal Control who really love the animals.

Lily had the chance to take Deputy Fornwalt from the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office for a tour of the shelter – in exchange for lots of cookies of course!

Our Animal Control Officers work closely with LCSO deputies on everything from traffic hazards to cruelty investigations. Deputy Fornwalt is now assigned to the Western Loudoun Station as a Community Resource Deputy and stopped by our shelter to say hi! Welcome Deputy Fornwalt!

I recently sent out a couple of promo packs to a couple of my huge supporters. Thank you to Brenda Escobar for this pretty display! I’m testing out some products and she made them look great. I’ll be having a contest soon to win won’t of these promo packs. Stay tuned!!

I started at the Loudoun County Animal Shelter yesterday. I am able to share the photos out for all to see. If you live in Loudoun, please share these out so we can get these beauties adopted! You can see more on their site (in the comments).

Here are the animals I shot. You can look at the individual photos for their names and any information I know about them.

I had a great time photographing Kathleen yesterday. She was kind enough to work with me on dance photos. I wanted to capture movements, poses, leaps, etc. She was a fantastic subject. There is always something to learn at every shoot and this was no different.

Question: Would you prefer to see leaps from farther away or up close? I couldn't decide.
