Capturing the spirit and energy of kids...I love photographing children! They never cease to amaze me! Lovebugs are my passion and I love being able to catch a glimpse of their personality through photographs. I have taught children for the last ten years and can get through to them well. Photos can be taken at your home or at an outside location. Make sure that your child is dressed comfortably. I love seeing kids in bright, bold colors. Accessories and props such as hats, fairy wings, tutus, tiaras, capes, etc. are great too! To make a child feel more comfortable, bring something personal of theirs such as a favorite stuffed animal or toy. We can incorporate it in our shoot! Make sure your child is well fed, but be sure to bring snacks and extra toys with you.
Capturing loving, nurturing moments...that's what photographing families is all about! I love seeing and freezing these moments in time. Photos can be taken in your home or at a favorite spot. Furry family members are welcome as long as someone else can be there to watch them if needed. For family photos, try to wear clothes with solid colors and neutral tones that complement each other to avoid having the focus on one certain family member. It is great to accessorize outfits with pops of color! Dresses, jeans, long-sleeved shirts, khakis, etc. are all great! Kid and family sessions usually last around an hour. On average, 100-250 frames are shot, which are edited down to approximately 30-50 images for your to view.
Several fine art collections are offered by Jennifer Maesen Photography. All collections include the session, an in-person viewing/ordering session, the digital files and fine art to display in your home. To view the fine art collections, please contact me.
If a client would like to purchase a session and art products a la carte, sessions are offered at $250. If purchasing a la carte, there is a minimum order of $300. To see an a la carte menu, please contact me.
At the time of the session, the client will pay the session fee in it's entirety or 50% of the fine art collection price, whichever is greater. The remaining balance will be due at the viewing/ordering session approximately two weeks later. A CA State sales tax fee of 9.00% will be added to all session and print/product/collection fees.
Art for your home About two weeks after your session, we will get together at your home to view your enhanced images and pick out your favorites to create beautiful works of art to display in your home! I want my clients to decorate their home with art pieces, not just regular photos. Fine art prints, canvas wall galleries, canvas or metal prints and albums do just that! Made of superior quality, all of these art products will become the focal point in whichever room they are placed. We will work together to come up with the perfect way to display your art!

Fine art canvas gallery wraps are a beautiful and elegant addition to any home! Gallery wraps are printed directly onto museum quality canvas material using high quality archival inks. Laminate is applied to each piece to protect the print's surface and provide UV Light protection. There are three ways to hang your canvas wrap: a sawtooth hanger with bumpers and paper backing, a wire hanger with bumpers and no paper backing and the final option of no hanger, no bumpers and no paper backing so that you can have it professionally framed.
Metal art prints are a fresh, modern way to display art in your home! Your metal art print will definitely be a conversation starter. With metal prints, dyes are directly infused into specially coated aluminum sheets. The result? A durable print with vibrant colors, brilliant luminescent images and exceptional detail! Metal prints have an ultra-hard scratch-resistant surface, are waterproof and weather proof (don't put them in direct sunlight) and can be cleaned easily with any commercial glass cleaner. There are a variety of ways to display your metal print. A float mount hanger, which is attached to the back of the print and floats the print a 1/2" off the wall when hung is included. If you would like a flush mount metal frame, stainless steel mounting posts, wooden easels or metal easel backs, they are available at an additional cost.
Wall clusters and splits are a contemporary and beautiful way to show off your favorite images in a collage on your wall! The wall clusters are assembled with multiple prints and the wall splits use a single image across all of the prints. They are designed to be hung 1" apart. Wall clusters and splits are offered in fine art canvas gallery wraps, metal prints or thin canvas wraps. Thin canvas wraps are printed on museum quality canvas material and much thinner than regular canvas wraps. They are laminated with satin laminate and then mounted with a 1/2" spacer on the back, which allows the image to be hung and make it appear to float on the wall.
Fine art prints are beautiful ways to display your favorite images! Printed on Kodak Endura paper with a fine grain pebble texture and then mounted on styrene, these images are extremely durable and look amazing! They can be framed and mounted on walls, placed on shelves or easily stand on their own. Fine art prints make fantastic gifts for relatives and look fabulous in your home or office!
