We were driving around, Craig and I, on a much needed vacation. He leaned over & asked "what are you passionate about?". I didn't have to think long about it. I knew immediately and soon, so did he. Little did we know that question would light a spark and eventually turn into the business of my dreams.
A little about me . . . I'm Jena Golden. Wife, mom and senior photographer with big dreams.
Most days, you’ll find me in jeans & a probably gray t-shirt, working at my desk with a big smile on my face, 2 mini labradoodles and 1 little rescue by my side -- or (let's be honest here) carpooling one of my 3 boys to some sports practice. Haha! I’m always up for a new adventure. I’m a storyteller, workout hound, essential oil lover, chocolate chip cookie connoisseur (hence the exercise obsession), and queen of sarcasm. You'll see a good bit of my behind the scenes life on instagram if you wanna join the crazy :)
In my "spare" time I'm a blogger and love teaching other senior photographers how to build and run their own successful studios over here on this blog, helping them get profitable, productive and purposeful in their photography businesses so they can enjoy that much needed time with their families too.
This thing I do . . . it's not just a job. It's my purpose and I am so passionate about photographing this special time for high school seniors. I absolutely love the people that come into my life. I don't just gain clients, I gain friends along the way as well.
My goal here . . . is simply that every client that walks into the studio will have an amazing experience and will walk out with a collection of the most beautiful images they have ever seen of themselves and a renewed sense of confidence.
While I am mostly known for my work in the senior portrait industry, I love creating professional headshots for Forsyth County business owners as well. Personal branding is so important now in this online world now. I'm proud to offer this service to real estate agents and brokers, attorneys, doctors, insurance agents, and other small business owners too.
I promise that your session will be fun and relaxed, and that your images will be full of emotion and natural expressions you see everyday. That's why I added some silly behind the scenes images here too. This really is what our senior sessions look like :)
I am all about creating a one of a kind experience that is uniquely yours! I want to capture your passion too! This is such a big part of your life. Let's capture it together!
