my story

about me, Lindsay Jenks

NATURAL LIGHT PHOTOGRAPHER

Hi, I’m Lindsay Jenks and am a portrait photographer in Phoenix, Arizona! I have always been the one with the camera; the one who takes pictures of everything and documents each moment. I remember as early as 6th grade, I was bringing a camera to school and taking pictures of my friends at recess. Photos allow us to hold on to memories and remember those special moments.

When my daughter was born in 2008, I got my first “real” camera and I haven’t stopped clicking. I wanted to document every one of her milestones and I didn’t want to miss a thing. I was the typical mom with the camera (and I still am, just a little better :)). After a couple of years and thousands of pictures later, my friends began asking me to take their family Christmas photos, Sweet Sixteen photos, engagement photos…then more requests followed with pregnancy announcements, birthdays, soccer teams, business headshots, best friend photos, pets…I think you see the pattern.

After much encouragement and support, I officially launched Lindsay Jenks Photography in Fall 2018 and my business has been a complete whirlwind of excitement and growth. Word of mouth and repeat clients have been an incredible source of business and also the most amazing compliment of my work. In addition to my personal business, I am also the featured photographer for STROLL magazine in the Sky Crossing neighborhood and I was also the official photographer for Scottsdale City Lifestyle Magazine for 2.5 years. I feel so fortunate to call this my “work” as I am truly doing my dream job!

I am a natural light photographer so I pay extremely close attention to the sunlight during my sessions. Capturing that golden glow and placing you in the most perfect lighting is one of my specialties!  I like to describe my photography style as bright, warm, colorful and HAPPY, so if that’s what you’re looking for then you’re in the right place! :).

I LOVE cacti and I believe it makes a breathtaking backdrop in photos. You will notice I have cactus on almost everything!

I was first exposed to Lindsay’s amazing photography skills when she was the assigned photographer for a magazine editorial being written about me. Our photoshoot turned out so beautifully, and working with her was so wonderful, I knew she was my only choice for my family photoshoot. I wasn’t wrong. Our photos are so incredibly beautiful, they make me cry. And working with her is beyond enjoyable. Hire her. You won’t regret it.

Cannot recommend Lindsay enough! It’s no wonder she has only five star reviews. She is communicative, professional, and so talented. She came to our engagement photoshoot prepared with ideas (as we wanted to include our dogs) and made us feel comfortable and at ease. Her photographs are gorgeous and she provided sneak peeks the very next day! We got our whole collection within a week which is earlier than her quoted timeframe. We can’t wait to use her again!

I loved working with Lindsay! I loved the photos, and she was so experienced, she knew exactly where to put me and pose me! And I got so many photos out of the session that I all loved!

Lindsay was so personable, patient, and positive. She worked wonders with our anxious (and sometimes uncooperative) dog and our teens. She gave us instant feedback and was willing to try whatever ideas we had. Her communication was excellent and the turn around time was super fast. We had a wonderful experience!

We absolutely love taking our family pictures with Lindsey! She is very professional yet personable. We love how natural her composition is in every shot. We will treasure every picture and memory that Lindsey captures. Thank you Linsey!

Lindsay took our sons senior photos and they are incredible! He wasn’t jazzed about doing photos but knew he didn’t have a choice because it’s what mom wanted 😊 Lindsay knew exactly how to work with a guy who’s not comfortable in front of the camera and the photos captured his true smile and expressions. No frozen, fake smiles and she caught him in the moments when he was relaxed. The pictures are amazing! I went through the photos and tried to narrow down the ones I liked most and there were more than 30 so tons of great photos. This is our third photo shoot with Lindsay and we’ve already booked our fourth for the spring. Everyone should have their photos taken by Lindsay!

Lindsay took our daughter’s senior photos, and we were thrilled with everything. The photo session was fun, and our daughter felt very comfortable with Lindsay. The photos were sent to us within a week, and they turned out great! We were so pleased. We will definitely be using Lindsay again in the future for our family photo sessions and our other daughter’s senior photos when the time comes. We highly recommend her.

I plan on scheduling with Lindsay Jenks Photography for our family annual photos from now on. She is very talented. And was very good with our younger daughter (4).

We had such a great experience with Lindsay Jenks. She is professional and at the same time fun to work with. She always made sure we were happy with poses, backgrounds and readily accepts feedback and suggestions. But I totally deferred to her expertise; she is very talented. I have twins who really aren’t all that different from each other but somehow she managed to capture their uniqueness and personality in the photos she did of them. I would absolutely hire her again for any future photo shoots and recommend her for any type of photography.
