Jen Amato Photography Blog bio picture

    Hi, my name is Jen Amato and I am a Natural Light Portrait Photographer based out of Louisiana. Welcome to my Blog! This is where you will find my most recent work since I post after every single shoot! I think it's important to get to know the photographer behind the lens, so I often post personal entries as well. I hope to share a little bit of my life with you! Photographing people has been so rewarding, that's why I stay addicted to my career! My goal is for my photography to keep life's irreplaceable moments alive forever. Creating friendships with the people I photograph has been so heart warming. I hope you enjoy viewing my work and learning just a little bit about myself and my clients. Thanks for visiting and be sure to check back soon! There's always lots of fun couples, sweet families and precious babies gracing the presence of my site!

I’ve had the honor of photographing this beautiful family several times over the years! Melanie is one of my dearest friends and a fellow photographer. She just recently photographed my family a couple of months ago, so I couldn’t wait to get the opportunity to get some family shots for her!! I love having our lunch dates here in New Orleans or I sometimes take the drive to Mandeville to visit her and go shopping there. I love having our 3 little girls together, so much fun! I headed to Lakefront Mandeville to take these and the lighting was beautiful! I’m so happy after 3 reschedules, the weather was nice for us! Thank you Mel for giving me the chance to photograph your sweet family! You guys are so beautiful and I enjoy seeing your girls grow! There are so many favorites from their session! I love the candid ones and the ones of them just being lovey! So sweet! I hope you love them Mel, always fun!!!
