Sugardrops | Portrait Photography Lighting
Hello Beautiful, my name is Jennifer. I am a photographer. I know what beautiful looks like. I can see yours. I know how to bring it forward, and how to capture it with my camera. I also know what it’s like to be a woman who struggles to see her own beauty. That’s why I’ve made it my mission to create the most beautiful portraits you have ever had. I want to show you how beautiful you are; to help you reconnect with the woman you see in your portraits, and be awed by her again.

Portrait Photography Lighting


People often ask me why I don’t have a photography studio in a busy commercial area, and I always say the same thing:  It’s all about the light.  I looked at commercial spaces and seriously considered opening a studio in a downtown setting, but I can never find anything that comes close to what I have right here at home.

My style of photography is 99% based on natural lighting.  It gives portraits a fresh, contemporary look–definitely not like anything out of the 70s and 80s playbook of portrait photography.  Remember those hilarious studio portraits from the 80s?  With people staring off into space with an eerily-serene, plastered-on smile that scares their families, and a spotlight shining on them from somewhere in a pitch-black room?  My photographs are running down the street screaming in the opposite direction!!!!

My studio needs to have really good sources of natural light coming in from windows, and it just so happens that my living room has an abundance of windows with lots of room for shooting portraits.
 There are five, 6-foot windows in a turret area at the front of the room–a nightmare for drapery budgeting, but ideal for photography.  There’s a constant source of light throughout the day from the east, south, and west.  I haven’t found anywhere else that comes close to offering this much light.

During a fireside chat with hot chocolate and a whole bunch of extra marshmallows, my husband and teenagers generously agreed to let me convert the living room into my own little piece of heaven.  Was it a problem that I asked them after I opened my business?  Nope.  Not for me.
