More Raves … with heartbreaking sweetness!

Another email conversation that really touched home this Holiday. We understand all too well everything you loose when a love one passes away. I am so honored and blessed everyday by my clients and my talent to document their life and relationships with my camera! THANKS SO MUCH for the reminder, Anne-Marie,  that what we do as photographer means much more than we may know.

Hello Jennifer,

I just want to let you know the wonderful feedback we have gotten from our Christmas card this year!  Everyone says it is the best one they have ever seen and they are asking who the photographer is.  So just wanted to pass along the great comments we are getting!

Hope you have a wonderful holiday!

Thank you so much for passing this along … if you don’t mind with a sample of your card, can we post this on the blog?

This makes my heart smile. You have a beautiful family and they make my passion come to life! Thanks again! If you have not already, you should be getting your frame from Charley very soon. I know he is done with it.

Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Sure, please feel free to use it on the blog!  Thanks again for a job well done!  I don’t know if I ever told you but my dad was a professional photographer/videographer who died the year after our wedding.  I was so sad to think he will never be there to take pictures of my family.  Thanks to you I have found someone that he would be proud of to fill his shoes for me.

Happy Holidays!

After being at the Gulf Coast capturing client’s Fine Art Beach Portraits and evaluating the situation there, I have to say I am very proud of my American neighbors. There were many more vacationers there enjoying the beaches, the shops and the hotels then I expected. I don’t know what the numbers are as far as people traveling to that area, but I do say the energy was good and people were enjoying the beautiful Gulf Coast sunset!

Now it is time to save the beaches and wild life that are less fortunate. Please link your self with various organizations like Restore the Gulf (link below). And give what you can to help!

Restore the Gulf

Here are some pictures from my sessions “at the beach with Jenn Ocken!”Thank to all my clients for taking the time to hang with me on the beach! Enjoy!
