Can't you just feel the warmth and all the love in these photos from last year!

~

We are excited to share with you some of our favorite Captured Beach Moments from Jenn's 2019 summer portraits!

We know it's already midway through the summer but this year, well as we all know, has been a crazy one! The success of The Front Porch Project in Baton Rouge along with the different phases being put in place to keep everyone safe has put a delay on all our beach plans! But none-the-less at least they were not canceled! 


Jenn is scheduling beach sessions for the remaining days of summer and following safe distance protocol for everyone's best interest and wellness in mind! If you like to check availability for 2020 Beach portraits with Jenn feel free to call 225-590-3731 or inquire here.

 

Enjoy! Feel free to share these photos and feel free to hashtag #SMILEforJennJenn, especially when posting on Instagram and her on Facebook!

 

And see you at the beach! & Stay well! See all photos here!

#TheFrontPorchProjectBR is the kind of magic only love can create. https://jennocken.zenfolio.com/blog/2020/6/-thefrontporchprojectbr H20_Jenn-11H20_Jenn-11

 

So as I am finalizing and uploading the last of my porch sessions, releasing the impact numbers to the media and returning to my regular scheduled beach sessions for the summer, I sit here with Little Bob reflecting on the beauty that rose from the such a monumental uncertain time in our lives. 

What we did collectively in my community creating a massive impact that not only affected our local businesses but helped the morale too. I know for me The Front Porch Project BR gave me a sense of purpose and joy in this time of uncertainty! I have been calling these past few months ...

The CRAPtastic time of my life. 

I literally went from doing what I always do around this time; 

  • a bit of traveling
  • getting ready for the summer beach portraits
  • hanging with friends
  • and planning to attend my seasonal festivals 

... to holy CRAP! Do I have to stay at home? I can’t travel! I can’t hang with my friends!! I can’t work! I can’t fest! This shit was real! And it was hitting me hard. 

 

I started to take nose dive! 

While we all had to literally distance ourselves from our friends and family with the only physical interaction was with the people you already lived with, which meant for some of us it became a life of solitude. 

I was one of those people. I was falling deep into the WTF! WTF! WFT! WFT! The tension was thick in the office and I was swimming around all up in my head without my heart to ground me! My mental health was crumbling. 

The trinity of fear, doubt, and worry with their sidekick anger was quickly becoming my BFFs! I almost got on a plane to be with my brother in Chicago to ride this uncertainty out. It would have been best for my mental health or so I thought … 

 

Then I got THE TEXT that rocked my quarantine world.

It was a $1.28M rumble of love to be exact! And it all came from a simple suggestion with a slight twist of demand ... 

“Hey Jenn you need to start this in Baton Rouge NOW” came from Aimee Supp, friend and  Moxey Vice President of sales, on Saturday, March 21, 2020. She was referring to a project that was started in Massachusetts just three days earlier called The Front Steps Project started by photographer, Cara Soulia.   

"That morning change the course of my nose dive and grateful crashed the stay at home pity party I was about to begain." 

As I read the text and took it all in, I quickly realized I was born to do a project like this. It was going to be a lot of moving parts and I knew we (my JOP team) would figure it out! I didn’t know how I was going to pay my them but I knew we need to get to work. I had no idea how big this would become that day but my sanity depended on me saying YES and figuring it out later! 

 

I had just received one of the biggest CALLS TO ACTION in my life and #TheFrontPorchProjectBR was born. 

I was no longer paralyzed. Nor I was acting out of fear. I was responding to a call that aligned with every bit of my being and I was going to run with it no matter where it was going to take me. 

"At that moment I simultaneously felt joy and fear at the same time."

And instantly I knew the way I was going to maneuver through this pandemic even though I still did not know how long this was going to go on, how I was going to pay my employees, or if my business could survive a complete world shut down for nonessential businesses. It is was interesting how this project ended up being essential but in a different light. The very magical kind that only love can create during this uncertain time we were entering. 

This project was not only essential for me and the other photographers who joined The Front Porch Project’s mission but it gave light to the community and encouragement to local businesses to keep going. 

"We decided to dance in this CRAPtastic time we were all in together - all while staying at least 6 feet apart."

Throughout the past three months, I have learned so much moving from day to day porch to porch. I love hearing your stories, reading your post, feeling your love this project was creating. It kept me from worrying about the future and gave my focus and joy in the present moment. There is a book here somewhere in all that I have learned and I plan on writing it. 

Some BIG THANK YOUS! 

I want to finalize this post by thanking some very special people who were intricate parts of all the moving parts of this project and call I took back in March. This project was such a valuable and unmatchable team effort to pull off! 

First off Aimee Supp for not only texting me the infamous TEXT that started this whole project. But for trusting in me, and going way above and beyond to support me and the other photographers. You are an inspiration to us all! THANK YOU. 

Super thanks to my team! 

  • Jessica, my office manager for organizing and scheduling over 900 porches for me to photograph. 
  • For Taylor Watson for enhancing most all my porch photos so that I could keep pushing that shutter and reach so many porches! 
  • To Devon Bardin McKnight for taking the time to route all my neighborhoods so that I could get to everyone efficiently. 
  • For my drivers, Aimee, (again) Nancy, Robert, and Kimberely! Y’all made the adventures so much fun! 
  • For Sarah for postin hundreds of porch photos for me on Facebook! 

Thanks so much to all the porch families and friends who met us outside your homes to get your picture taken. You went above the simple pay-it-forward ask to make this amazing impact in our community. And along with it, your patience and appreciation and smiles were all received with much gratitude. And thank you for the countless gifts, notes, and tokens of appreciation I received along the way. I felt the love! And I had a blast with all of you. I hope to see you again soon but under different circumstances. 

Super thanks and Hi5 to the community in #TheFrontPorchProjectBR Facebook group for coming together not only going above and beyond our simple, but you also created so much love for others in the group with your words of encouragement and comments, you showed us respect and appreciation for all our efforts and helped us and each other to connect with photographers so over 4,000 porches portraits could be taken and the $1.28M dollars was received. 

I am so grateful to all who checked in on me, fed me, and made sure I was taking care of myself. - Thank you. It was heartfelt to know so many want to make sure I was ok.

Thanks to all reporters, show host, and podcasters that covered our project’s mission and shared the good news to our community! 

And thanks to all the businesses that shared our post and let us know how the project was impacting them! Your stories were amazing and kept us going!  

You all gave me the inspiration and motivation to run with this project and keep going over 900 porches later! 

My Front Porch Photos

I close this post showcasing my porch photos taken by the one and only Jayme Firnberg of Rockit Surgery - Photographer and Video! He is such a gem in our community and thought he wasn’t a full-on porch photographer he did take a few and I am grateful I was apart of his collection. You might have seen him taking portraits at some of the hippest events in our city! 

And, of course, here are my contributions to the pay-it-forward initiative that was the heart and soul of this project! 

 

Mary Claire Artist - For the AMAZING painting of my pup, Little Bob’s Painting during the stay at the home ordinance

Taylor Watson Photography - Portraits of Aimee and I on a front porch.

ElloArtist - Ellen Ogden - for new JOP sign

Red Stick Spice Company- for my fly new ice tea pitcher and focus tea

Cleggs Nursery - for my planets and front porch decor

Mestizos - my pandemic grub hub

Cannatella Grocery - My quick stop shop while on route photographing porches

Tony Cobb - Local musician and good friend

The Hope Stop - Hands producing Hope - Just good people supporting a good cause with a beautiful new storefront 

Jordan Hefler - Presets and LR Actions that I am dying to play with! 

And many many more I just can’t remember at this time.

For the Love of Horse!

 

Horses are just amazingly grand beautiful creatures! I have always admired horses! I am a city girl with a daddy who had rural roots! He was raised on a farm and rode horses in 4H events as a kid. A couple of his siblings stuck to a rural scene and made the land and horses their way of life! I was blessed to ride as a young kid and felt the power of peace that one can feel when riding such a graceful powerful animal. 

When my JOP families reach out and ask me to capture their child's relationship with a horse, I AM ALL IN! Being back around horses is such a creative peaceful feeling of love and appreciation not only for the horse themselves but for the relationship between the horse and humans riding them. The other is taking care of the needs of their friend. I can see the horse knows what their rider needs and won't hesitate to let the rider know what it needs!

It's a strong bond that is full of trust, love, respect, and responsibility for each other.

Here are the favorites from my session with Mary Usher. Who is graduating from St. Joesph's Academy this year and who I have been photographing since 2009. And click here is what Mary had to say on Instagram about her horse and their experiences together!

Brooks + Billy's Winter Wedding in New Orleans https://jennocken.zenfolio.com/blog/2020/1/nader-haire-winter-wedding-neworleans PeopleSeriesPeopleSeries

Brooks Nader + Billy Haire Winter Wedding Bliss in South Louisiana!

It’s exciting to watch any couple begin the next chapter of their lives. The sparkle is never lost on us. However, when Holland Nader booked our photography services for her daughter’s wedding, none of us — not even the bride — new the extra layers that would be added to her celebration. You see, Brooks Nader is a Sports Illustrated model now married to William Haire. Her fame alone made the wedding very interesting, but after booking us, Brooks won the 2019 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model search competition and was named 2020 model rookie of the year for the magazine, which added another level of intensity to the day.

We are all so excited for her. This was such an amazing boost to her career and, well, ours too!

We loved the challenge of photographing a high-profile event and appreciated the trust she so delicately placed on our shoulders. All of this only increased our desire to do our absolute best with every aspect of the day.

Then, to add even more fun to the mix, Brooks decided to take a shot at a People magazine exclusive to announce her marriage to Billy. And days later, both The Knot.com and Brides.com jumped at the chance to showcase their celebration.

Based on experience, we knew how important it would be to pay attention to the details on this particular day, so we are grateful Brooks had hired Leslie Campbell to plan her wedding, and that it would feature the always-gorgeous florals from Billy Heroman. We worked to prepare and to anticipate every possibility, but with every passing day, the pressure mounted. Not only would People magazine need photos, but more and more features were being added to the celebration — and all the images would need to be delivered the week immediately following the wedding!

As I told Brooks, "I love a challenge and I appreciate that you are a go-getter!" We both knew that this was going to add many layers to how we approach photographing the wedding day. Knowing that attention to the details were more important than ever, I was so grateful she had hired Leslie Campbell to plan her wedding and with Billy Heroman bringing his team, I knew there was not much to worry about when it came time to capture the many details of this celebration. Especially now that not only was People magazine wanting photos but more features were being added and needing photos immediately, as in the next week, immediately!

But we didn’t panic. We never panic. Working closely with Brooks, we created a plan to make the edits, learned how she wanted the enhancements to look and prioritized the delivery of the photos. A good majority of them were finished before the last candle from the reception was extinguished, and the world got their Brooks and Billy wedding celebration "fix" the very next day!

To do all this, we gathered a team of photographers and even our office manager to work on the photos almost in real time as the day progressed. We pulled Brooks away for a moment between events to approve the choices so we had a large group of photos ready to send before the reception ended. Our confidence in our team was cemented that evening, but none of this could have happened without Brooks’ amazing ability to make quick decisions — and quick changes. She completely reset the tone for her “reception look” with a new dress, hairstyle, and makeup — all without missing a single moment of her celebration. It was truly magical and worth the planning and hard work everyone put in.

High fives to all that made this evening such a grand success!

We first and foremost, we want to thank Brooks and Billy. But we also need to call out our team made up of Emily GreenTaylor Waston, and our office manager, Jessica Sarkar. They all showed up with their talents and brought their creativity, making them a force to be reckoned with! Everyone put on whatever hat was needed at the moment and worked instinctively together as if we could read each other’s minds.

It was awe-inspiring and at times a bit surreal, but nonetheless a total blast. We are very proud of the beautiful story we produced as the night unfolded. Everything seemed to go exactly right and we are all beaming and sincerely grateful for the team.

We also need to give a big shout out to the Nader and Haire families for keeping their wedding professionals local and trusting in what we all have built right here in southern Louisiana. It’s always an honor to work with such fine professionals creating an extremely magical and exceptional wedding celebration. Everyone that helped that evening was touched by your confidence in us and deeply honored to be a part of such a happy time in your life.

So THANK YOU, Brooks and Billy and your beautiful families. You gave us an opportunity to shine, and we truly love all that we did together. And thanks to any and all publications that took the time to feature this magical day. The Jenn Ocken Photography team is honored to have played a part in its success. Everything was truly picture perfect!

HHHS_4 copyHHHS_4 copy

 

Let's set you up for success! 

Jenn specializes in getting a handful of expressions in a short amount of time that will showcase your style and personality, whether you are a simple, animated, reserved, expressive, crazy, serious, or flirty. You will answer a few questions so that she has an idea of what you are looking for from your session and a drink always helps calm the nervous when it comes time to get up behind the camera! Here are some tips to help you get the most out of your Happy Hour Headshots! 

 

1: Wear comfortable clothes! Watch out for straps that fall or blouses that might shift easily and show unwanted straps. 

2: If you are working with a brand be mindful of the colors you choose for your outfit so they won't conflict with the brand colors on websites and on promotional material. 

3: Arrive early so that you have some time to check your-fine-self out in the mirror and do any last-minute touch-ups if needed. If you arrive late, no worries, we will fit you in ... you just might have to wait a few minutes for the best time. 

4: Stick with your version of everyday make-up! You want people to recognize you in the photos! 

5: These sessions are designed for just one person! But call the office if you think you would like two people together and we will let you know the details for that.

6: Bring business cards! This is a great place to network with other fun like-minded professionals!

Why do I need a new headshot? 

1: Update social media profiles from that selfie you have been using for way too long!

2: These will be great for websites, business cards, and other promotional material that needs your mug on it. 

3: It's time to upgrade from the stale stiff headshot you have been using since 2009!

4: Because you get a free drink with your headshot! - ENOUGH SAID!  

5: You can use this session to get quickie content images for your brand! SEE BELOW!

Creating a Better Portrait Experience! https://jennocken.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/9/creating-a-better-portrait-experience  

 

Who doesn't love having great portraits of their family?

A portrait session isn't always about the final outcome though. The experience is half of the fun!

Below are some of our favorite tips to help you create a better portrait experience.

 

{ To schedule your portrait session, contact the office today! }

info@jennockenphotography.com

 

Some great tips from our JOP parents!

1. Use the same photographer every year. Your kids will become comfortable with them and it will show! You don't want your kids to have to get comfortable with someone new all over again.

2. Make sure your kids love their outfits! Buy them a new pair of shoes or something they will be excited to show off in their photos! A child not happy in their clothes will not be happy in their photos!

3. Be prepared to capture special off-guard moments happening where the action is not. There is always so much happening and picture perfect moments are all around!

4. When taking your fall portraits, don't be afraid to get creative with backgrounds and poses. Also, don't be afraid to get a little dirty and throw some leaves around! It's nice to let loose during a session, especially at the end!!

5. When taking portraits with others, be open-minded!
Good ideas come in all shapes and sizes from all family members!

6. Relax your shoulders and push them slightly back.
Your body language will relay a welcoming openness in the picture
. Take deep breaths throughout the whole session.
This not only calms you, but it calms the kids around you.

7. And most importantly... always let your enjoyment show through! Have fun! Don't be afraid to pick up the kiddos and toss them in there air. Give your spouse a sweet kiss on the cheek. Engage in one another, this always brings out the true love and emotions of the family. 
We are capturing the fine art of YOUR life, so show it off!

What's Your Family Portrait Style? https://jennocken.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/9/whats-your-family-portrait-style

 

Be JOP Inspired! So you and your family have scheduled portraits with a photographer!

 

A lot of the time, planning what you're going to wear can be stressful and overshadow the fun of the actual portrait session. JOP is here to make it a little easier in choosing outfits that best reflect your family's style and personality!

To schedule your fall portrait session, contact the office today!

225-590-3731 / info@jennockenphotography.com

__________________________________________

Southern Classic style tends to include monogrammed outfits, matching materials, and making a statement with your oversized bow! Choosing soft pastel colors is always a winner with a beach scene! Don't forget to avoid necklines that are high maintenance and might show unwanted undergarments.

Click here to book your Fall portrait session, today!

Red, White, and BEACH! Nautical themed prints and primary colors are perfect options for your 4th of July beach photography session. It's always best to choose clothing that best resembles your family’s personality and makes everyone feel the most comfortable.

Ready to schedule your portrait session?? Click here to contact the JOP office today!

 

For your portraits, be open-minded to color! Accessories are a great way to add personality to your look. Jewelry can be used in any color scheme, and prints are a great way to express your personality.

 

Want to book your portrait session today? Click here to start a conversation with Jess in the JOP office!

 

Thinking about the background of your portrait location can be your starting point of what colors to wear. We LOVE the navy blue against the dark greens of a natural outdoor setting!

Click here to book your portrait session!

 

Choosing solids over patterns is good when there are larger groups or older kids with age gaps. This helps the smaller children stand out in the group shots of everyone. These can be primary colors, complimentary colors, pastels, or neutrals!

Click here to book your portrait session with Jenn! 

 

We love a great casual look! Neutral colors that compliment the surroundings of your portrait are always a classic, polished way to express your family's style. This look is simple yet sophisticated!

Need photos? Click here to get on our calendar for Fall Portraits!

 

Letting go of a cohesive, matching theme and letting the kids choose outfits that feel most comfortable in can result in expressing their true personalities. Feel free to get fun and funky to express yourselves!

Have you been inspired? Want to schedule a session with JOP? Click here to do so! 

 

There's always the classic white and khaki look! Don't be afraid to mix it up and maybe find a khaki dress or white linen shorts to keep from everyone looking the exact same. This gives individuality while keeping with the traditional beach look. Be true to your style and think about how you want these photos to look 20 years from now.

Good News! You can click right here to book your portrait session with JOP today!

 

P.S. Always do a double check of your hair right before the session. Bring a brush or hairspray just in case! Also make sure you don't have anything in your pockets. Things that will leave an impression such as phone, glasses, wallets, etc. will draw attention to your backside! Don't forget to bring water and dry snacks (crackers, pretzels, cheerios, etc.) and baby wipes are better for runny noses than tissues!

Get on our calendar today!

 

Mimic Fall's color scheme with maroons, berries, browns, and plaid! Opt for a more natural setting for your portrait session to show off the beautiful changes in the leaves. Think about what would look good on your wall when you print and hang your family portraits!

Time to get those family portraits redone? Click here to schedule your portrait session with JOP today!

 

Mixing and matching patterns can still be easily coordinated when using a cohesive color scheme! We love the use of girly chevron and masculine stripes in the portrait above. Dad holds it all together with a classically tailored suit!

Skip the hassle, click here to contact the JOP office today and schedule your holiday portraits with us today! 

 

Are you into planning your Holiday Cards way in advance? Think ahead when dressing for your Christmas Card portraits by choosing colors that will compliment the season. Give it an old-school Americana twist by adding Navy!

How fun is this?! Click here to schedule your portrait session with JOP today!

 

GEAUX TIGERS! Okay, we got that out of our system. No matter the team, create family spirit by dressing in your favorite team's colors! This is perfect for the Fall (ahem, TAILGATE SEASON here in Baton Rouge!) and can be a cute way to show your kids' personalities.

Efficient & Fun Bridal Show Secrets! https://jennocken.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/2/efficient-fun-bridal-show-secrets  

Here are a few tips on how to have a fun and efficient bridal show experience!
And for JOP's wedding deals check out this blog post

So you’re recently engaged . . . well, BIG CONGRATS! You've also chosen your entourage to help plan your big day, so now it’s time to start hitting up some bridal shows. HOW FUN, right?!   

You get all dressed up for a day and you excitedly roll up to your first bridal show only to see the long line of others waiting for the doors to open. The mad rush already has you in the last place behind all the early birds, but don't worry, we have a trick for this! 

Next, you get to be stuck in a bottleneck after the bottleneck as you're ushered at a snail's pace around the venue. Not to worry; again, we have a trick for this, too! 

You finally make it through just in time for the runway show; the thing you're most excited about, and then you realize you're late to that game too and there are not more chairs! 

Maybe you’re about to hit your second or third show of the season and you ask yourself, “Is this even worth fighting the crowds!?” 

Well we got you!
Here is a great list of bridal show tips and tricks that are a sure-fire way to enhance your experience and create an efficient, fun way to “Bridal Show!”

 

Before you head out the door

Map it out: Make a mental note of your current wedding booking priorities, and only focus your efforts, time, and energy on talking to those vendors. You will most likely go to several shows a season, so these priorities will change as you begin confirming your vendors and crossing items off your To-Do list. 

 

Know your budget: Another thing you can do is try to plan out how much you'd like to spend (or at least a range) for each category so when you get the pricing for each vendor, you'll know immediately if you need to waste more time or put them on your call-back list.  

 

Get yourself prepped: Check out the vendor list online if the show website provides one. Doing a little research beforehand will clarify which vendors you need to talk to, which ones you may just want to check out, and which ones you can skip altogether. Some bridal shows have a vendor map, so you can figure out your plan before you get there.  

 

"Label" yourself: Here’s the thing; if you are interested in a vendor (especially one with a great door prize!) you are going to want to give them your contact information. When every vendor will hand you the pen and paper to grab your contact info. And about halfway through the event, your hand gets cramped and the excitement you came in with has suddenly disappeared unless you come prepared! Before you head out the door print out 5160 return address labels with your name, your wedding date, an email, a phone number and mailing address, so when they hand you the pen and paper you just stick a label on it and be on your way! Other helpful information could be your groom’s name and wedding location. 

 

Grab a bag:  Again before you head out the door, make sure you have a sturdy, large bag to collect all the free promo material and giveaways. Lots of shows provide these but oftentimes they run out early in the game.   



 

While you are at the bridal show

Sneak attack: Whether you come early or are stuck at the back of the line waiting, once the doors open, slip past everyone and make your way to the middle or end of the vendors and circle your way back to the front. You won't be stuck in the cowherd or crushed by the mad rush if you navigate against the typical bridal show flow! 

 

Window shop first: If they didn’t have a vendor list to check out beforehand a trick is to do a quick scan of the vendors, then head back and wait in the bottleneck lines for the ones that catch your eye. This is great for smaller shows where there are fewer than 50 vendors to check out. For the larger trade show style events, break the event up into sections. Do a quick scan of the venders in the area and move on to the next row. 

 

Utilize your entourage: They are there to help, so let them! They'll be great time-savers!  

  • Ask them to grab you a drink while you're waiting in line to talk to the photographer that was on your priority list.  
  • Get them to grab you a plate and a place to eat while you finish up this row of vendors.  
  • Have one of them save you a front-row seat for the runway show! 

Don’t just take photos! Almost every bridal shows have a  runway show with an announcer giving you all the details of what the models are wearing, and probably even their make-up artists and hairstylists. Start your video camera instead of a snapshot of your favorite styles so you can grab the details the MC is sharing as the models make their way up the runway! 

 

ENJOY IT! You are with some of your favorite people planning one of the biggest and best days of your life, so use these tricks to help “Bridal Show-ing” more fun and while gathering helpful info you'll need for your wedding planning.  

 

After the day is over

Give yourself a high five for making great headway in researching vendors for your wedding day!

 

Pretend it’s Halloween! Dump out your post-event bag and start organizing: make a list of vendors to contact, and if a vendor contacts you, make sure you respond immediately to let them know if you are still interested in their services. (It’s ok if you aren’t any more! Just let them know that too. Thanks!)

Do's and Don’ts for your Engagement Session https://jennocken.zenfolio.com/blog/2019/2/dos-and-don-ts-for-your-engagement-session
Have an engagement session coming up? Here are a few tips to make it fun and easy!

DO'S: 

Allow moments to happen. Feel free to hang out and just have fun while the photographer shoots. Give yourself permission to forget the camera is there and just have a fun conversation filled with laughter and love! These photos are representative of your love for each other, so be those two people that fell in love with each other and your photos will reflect that! 

Wear comfortable clothes! Make sure you wear something you love and that makes you feel confident. If you aren’t comfortable, it will show in the pictures, believe me. I have seen it all too often.  

Come prepared. Bring combs, brushes, touch up make-up, hair bands to pull back your hair if it’s windy, a mirror, and anything else you may need for touch-ups. Water, snacks, and baby wipes are all good to have on hand, too. 

Be strategic when choosing colors. Choose colors that are complementary to both your and your fiancés' complexion, eye color, and hair color.

Be true to your personality. Wear clothes that compliment your personal style and fit your body type. These are photos to celebrate your and your soon-to-be before you tie the knot! And you will keep them forever and show your children and grandchildren. Let the real you shine here!

Try not to overthink the photoshoot. I get it . . . nerves can show their ugly head in the form of overthinking the session. Relax and let your love show for one another by getting close to each other, letting those inside jokes fly, and showing admiration for one another throughout the photo session. Remember, pretending the photographer isn’t here is a secret key to capturing authentic, timeless photos! 

Don’t have to be too “matchy-matchy.” There is a balance between too matchy and not looking like you belong in the same space, much less photoshoot. Coordinate your outfits so the colors go well together, but don’t wear the exact same thing. You want to look like lovebirds, not siblings, right?! We have some great color palettes to refer to for portraits! (LINK HERE) 

Avoid logos printed on clothes!  It is distracting in photos and takes away from the love story being told in the photos. 

Don’t get a new do. This includes a new haircut, color, highlights, or have a tanning session immediately before your photo session. It’s best to schedule these at least a week before to combat any potential disasters.

Don’t be too trendy.  Choose classic, timeless styles. Trends come and go, so remember you will be admiring these photos forever. 

Don’t be afraid to get a little dirty. Sometimes the best shots might be on the ground, sitting on a low hanging tree branch, or leaning against a cool building. So, yes, that's another reason to wear comfortable clothes so you can create a full-on interactive session in with each other and your surroundings. 

Don’t over-accessorize.  Much like logos, the jewelry should not be the center of attention. Accessories are best used to complement your look, not overwhelm it. 

Don’t out-do your fiancé.  Don’t dress up and have your fiancé wear everyday street clothes. You want to compliment each other, not steal the spotlight.

 

Here are a few great ideas for utilizing your engagement photos:  

Photo Save-the-Date & thank-you cards

Save-the-Date Magnets

A parent or host/hostess gifts for pre-wedding events and/or rehearsal dinner 

Creating a photo guest book sign-in as an alternative to your guest book at the wedding or other wedding-related events

_________________________________________________________

Fall Style 7: Furry Friends

While this isn't so much about what you wear, but who you have with you! Bring along your pets to the session to make sure the whole family is included. They lighten the mood and make the session so fun!



Fall Style 1: Shades of Blue

This is a go-to style because it always photographs well and everyone loves blue! You can mix in grays, white, and cream along with your denim and blue. Denim is a classic and adds great texture in your family portraits. Also, blue clothing can really pop on a green background so keep in mind where you are wanting to take your portraits!

 


 

 


Fall Style 2: Holiday Spirit

If you want that classic green and red Christmas look, go for it! You can always mix white and khaki items in to tone it down. Perfect for JOP's one of a kind designed holiday photo cards!

 


 

 


Fall Style 3: Color Expression

This fall style is for you bold and playful people who like to have fun! Mix those colors and patterns and have fun with it! Express yourself through your clothes and don't hold back. Your portraits will definitely stand out from the rest!


 


 


Fall Style 4: Clean White

This is the most classic and timeless you can get! White looks great with any background and draws the attention to the people and not the clothes. You can always layer with white to add little pops of color or texture. This style goes with any season and is so versatile!

 

Ready to book? Click here!


 



Fall Style 5: Cool Neutrals

If you shy away from bright colors but still want more than just white this style is for you. Stay classic and sophisticated for your fall portraits in this color scheme of neutral colors. All of these colors go great with each other and the results are a timeless look that never goes out of style!

 

These fall portraits are perfect for your Holiday photo cards (which we also custom design for you!!)



Fall Style 6: Layers and Plaid

This is a great style to mix and match patterns and textures! Fur, plaid, and warm colors are the core of this fall style. Don't be afraid to add layers, they photograph extremely well! It is a classic fall look that is cozy and cute.

 


 

 

CLICK HERE to Book Now!! Contact our office at 225-590-3731 or info@jennockenphotography.com

Louisiana Sneaux 2017 https://jennocken.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/12/louisianasnow So we all know it snowed yesterday in Louisiana!
And ... it was BEAUTIFUL!

Being from the midwest and moving from Chicago, IL I came to Louisiana ten years ago. So it's easy to say I know snow!

I learned to drive in it; I know what it is like to get an expected quality amount of snow over night, just to wake up early hoping for a school delay to hear on the radio how great the city employees got the roads cleared just in time for the kids to make it to school! The possibility of a delay was about the ONE thing that could get me up early as a teenager! And you read right ONLY A DELAY - two hours at best!

School closings were the rarest thing in my world to pretty much nonexistent, especially in collage! I remember walking through campus with about 3-5 five layers still freezing with piles of snow towering at least a story high over my head as I walk to a 6am shift to lifeguard lap swimmers. WHO SWIMS WHEN IT SNOWS!? Yeah it was in inside, but seriously it's toooo cold for that! Northerners like their swim even when it's -20 degrees! 

So when it snows in Louisiana it's like all my dreams from when I was a kid comes true! Canceling school at the thought of snow ... never in my world! Also with Louisiana snow ... 

  • There won't be caked layers of dried ice on my car tomorrow

  • NOR piles of dirty street snow where the trucks plowed it off to the side so day to day could continue

  • OR those days when the afternoons are just warm enough to melt most of the snow for it  only to freeze at night again leaving a nice little slip trap on the back porch steps. Not even the layers of clothes I piled on for warmth would be enough padding to cushion the "banana slip" slow motion "NOOOOO" just before your tailbone hits the ice covered steps. And all you were trying to do is see if you need to put some damn salt down to melt the ice. 

  • AND NOOOOOO SHOVELING OF SNOW! <<< The worst chore ever!

  • AND I used a blanket to wipe (not scraper) the get the snow off my car!

You see snow in Louisiana is amazing for most of us who grew up dreading the winters. Yesterday's site reminded me of the elegant and beauty of raw snow fall. The snow flakes were huge and fell with out wind or sleet or salt or having to go on with your day to day even though it is (-)25˚outside!

 { It was magical! }

Louisianan’s get to experience a city without a snow plan with salt trucks and plows! I do know the complications to this but it allows us to embrace the elegance of untouched snow and the awesomeness of the "we think it's going to snow so EVERYTHING is closed down for the next day" plan and waking up to see if a wintery white scene we anticipated actually happened. 
 

And when it does, like yesterday, it covers everything you know untouched and perfect! It might be all gone in an hour, but there’s no salt, no dirty snow, and the best part schools are closed and most of the city! My sixteen-year-old-self still gets excited when she hears school is canceled, although she is confused on the silly spelling most do around here! - Don't worry she will soon learn the ways of Louisiana and make it her own! And her 41-year-old-self is grateful.

 HELLO SNEAUX DAY!

I took full advantage photographing a beautiful Louisiana Bayou scene as the snow was falling! It wasn’t too cold, it was beautiful and I truly enjoyed the first and probably last snowfall of the season ... probably the for maybe another few seasons. The last snow fall I can remember here in South Louisiana was about five or so years ago! 

Enjoy the photos I took yesterday … And I hope everyone enjoyed their Sneaux Day!

And here are a few of my pups! Eddie (in the red jacket) is also a midwest transplant like his mom! He was excited to see snow again after so many years! It was Little Bob's first snow! He wasn't and still isn't quite sure what to think! He just doesn't get it! But he did find some grass!

Celebrating 10 Years https://jennocken.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/7/celebrating-10-years  

 

   I can't believe it has been 10 years since Eddie-dog and I left Chicago and made our way to Louisiana to start a new adventure! I was living in the big city but craving the good southern heat, food and culture!  So after researching my options; Memphis, New Orleans, Austin, and Baton Rouge, along with little nudging from my dear friend Misty Murphy, I made the decision to bring my photography business to Baton Rouge. I could not be happier with my choice. This city and the people opened their arms up to me immediately and I seem to fit right in with all that is going on here. This is a city thriving on locally owned small businesses and I found comfort in amazing networking circles and soon realized that once you are here ... you are family!

   I want to take this moment to send a HUGE thank you to some very special people. It's hard to name everyone, but if you are reading this you then you are definitely one of them!!

   First to my clients for allowing me to be there at the beginning of new chapters and documenting your families as they have grown over the years. It has been an honor and here's to many more years! Your loyalty is a humbling complement to my passion for photography. Thank you!

   Also to my dear friends that treat me more like family. You have been such a beautiful part of my life and have made living here a beautiful joy! Thank you for opening your families and homes up to me and the pups! 

   Then to the LSU students and teachers, photographers, office managers, editors, and vendors that helped me bring JOP to life and keep her growing through out all these years! I am blessed to have such amazing support for my vision. And to be graced with such amazing talent to share with my clients! 

   To other business owners and the non-profit organizations that believed in what I was doing and allowed me to share my talents with theirs!  I have been given such great opportunities and wonderful advice with solid encouragement in hopes that we all rise together in our sweet endearing community!

   I am honored to call Louisiana my home and be surrounded by such a loving group of people that opened their hearts to a midwest photographer that just wanted to be warm all year and live closer to the beach!

   With much love and gratitude, Jenn

THrīv in the News https://jennocken.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/6/thriv-in-the-news

A New Community:

Jenn Ocken launches Thriv
to help crush 'the starving artist myth'

Read more of what the Advocate
has to say about
THriv and the waves Jenn is making

 

 

 


 

JENN'S STORY

    Hello I’m Jenn and I have been labeled a "creative type.” Yep one of those! I know there are people who think we live on another planet & are just lost wanderers. We are the folks who are labeled “starving artists.” Oh, and it’s assumed we are willing to do something, no anything, for free just for exposure!

    But as a Creative, I actually support my dreams, lifestyle, and wellbeing by capturing images of people and things for . . . (get this!) . . . money. My reality is crushing the “starving artist” myth.

    As you may know, if you too are a creative making money, this didn’t happen over night. Believe me, I didn’t always have “it” together, & truthfully, most days I still consider myself lucky if my butt is attached and I get out the door with matching shoes on my feet!

    In my twenties, I spent time hanging out with other Creatives who seemed to be way luckier than me. They had their shizz all together. I secretly hoped their creative mojo would magically rub off on me! I showed up with the fake-it-til-you-make-it attitude; a front that hid my bruised ego. I questioned why I was even there. Am I even smart enough to figure it out if their magic mojo does rub off on me?  Did I even deserve to get what they got?”

    I watched as these Creatives collaborated to produce amazing projects. They could afford sweet stylish clothes, lived in the funkiest neighborhoods, & surrounded themselves with all the “right” people. You know . . . our dream clients who appreciate creativity & actually spend money on the things we Creatives, well, create.

    One day I found myself sitting at the table over a bowl of noodles in my brother’s apartment, wondering how long I could defer my student loans & filling out yet another application for a bar down the street. I was contemplating whether to even give this photography thing a go. I mean, I had the safe university degree and I hadn't even gone to school for this photography stuff!

    So there I was sitting at the crossroads most Creatives hit pretty early in their careers. I realized how hard I was working at “side jobs” took up most of my time, and worse yet, my creative energy. The roadblocks were fighting the drive that was burning inside saying, “Follow your creativity.” But the money, ahhh the money, came from the black hole we call supplemental income. And there I was falling into the “starving artist” myth; starving myself of the creativity my heart & soul so longed to master.

    So why did I choose to take the road I desired instead of the safe highway to paying off those student loans? I realized I had a bag of tricks gifted to me when I was in college. You see, with my “safe” college degree I was required to get a business administrative minor. This foundation gave me the means to understand how to solve business problems & how to develop standard operating procedures, resulting in more time to create. It gave me insight into how marketing worked, whom to market to, how to estimate jobs, & the power of personal selling.  It was the knowledge from this foundation that helped me overcome rejection, failure, roadblocks, and naysayers. Because of this education, I was able to choose the path I desired the most: the not-so-starving-artist Creative I was supposed to be!

    Ok, so you might be thinking, “OH SNAP, now I have to go back to school or take more classes before I graduate?” (Insert super hero music here!) Never fear, unique, beautiful Creative! I am here to save the day & also your wallet.

    I have created an online community filled with lessons structured to give you the same foundation I was exposed at the university BUT paired with 15 years of real life experiences that guided me to being the Creative who looks like she’s got her shizz together. Now remember, I still might not be wearing any shoes, but that's okay, too!

    Let me be honest here; it’s not magical or easy, but it doesn’t have to be at all hard work. I still have to problem solve and evolve by tweaking parts of my foundation to support a growing business. But I can directly credit my stability and creative flow to this very foundation I am giving to you in our thriving online community! I hope you join me there. It’s a fun, unique, diverse, & real place to be!

    So . . . you are a Creative who took the “safe” career path but are now searching for a way to show up for your talents &/or move into a career where your craft supports you instead of you supporting your craft . . . this is for you.

    If you are about to finish school or recently graduated with minimal business advice & foundations from which to start . . . this is for you.
If you have an idea for a niche business but you don’t have the whole foundation package . . . this is for you.

    In our community you will find weekly podcasts, blogs with guest professionals offering sound advice, recordings of past webinars with Q&A sessions, a three-part foundation course that leads you through a series of lessons & exercises that are created to build tools specifically designed with your creativity & craft as the focus, ongoing financial tips, & the opportunity to work one-on-one with me and hear from our other creative cultivators!

    It’s a place to inspire and be inspired. It’s a space to evolve, reflect, question, encourage, develop, create, & thrive.

Heading to the beach this summer?

Check out our tips for making sure your beach portrait session goes smoothly and is a blast for you and your family while on vacation!

{To schedule your beach portrait session, contact the office today!}

225-590-3731 / info@jennockenphotography.com

  • When planning your beach vacation, check with the office for Jenn's travel schedule so you can Meet her at the Beach!
  • If you are planning on getting a haircut, do so at least a week before a shoot.
  • Try not to schedule your beach portraits in the middle of the day! The brightness creates harsher shadows. Morning and evening sun gives a more even glow.
  • Matching colors for everyone in the photos is a great way to have everyone looking uniform, but don’t hesitate to add some personality with some items like hats, jewelry, sun glasses or beach toys to add some fun! Click here to see our guide on how to pick the best outfits for your family.
  • When heading down to the beach bring water and maybe some crackers in case a little energizing snack or hydrations is needed. It's especially important for the kids to eat a protein rich meal before heading out in the sun for a beach portrait session (the closer to the session, the better.) This creates high energy and concentration levels for both kids and adults. An extra bottle for the babies is a great idea too! 
  • Interact with each other! You don't always have to be smiling at the camera... hug, laugh, run, twirl, and just have fun!
     

Encourage the kids to build a sand castle on the beach that day and we can photograph them playing around it, or even better smashing it like Godzilla during the session! For smaller kids, games like Red light-Green Light and Peek-a-boo are useful to get a genuine smile! Busbice Family Beach Portrait JOP_3670.CR2
