about me


Hi! My name is Jenn. My biggest passions in life are my family and photography. I have an amazing husband, and three incredible girls. Although my passion for photography started when I was very young, it's my family that keeps it burning. When I was a little girl, I was fascinated with my grandmothers photo albums. They were full of old black and white prints. Some of them were printed on paper, some were printed on tin, and some, my grandfather used to paint over in watercolours to add his own technicolor touch. I loved being able to match faces to names that I had heard about and never met (like my great grandparents) and see for myself what my mom looked like as a child. Seeing these photographs provided a window into the past. These places, people and things were frozen in time forever. I loved every single one of them. 

When I got older, I started taking pictures of everything. I loved being able to capture aspects of my subjects that made one characteristic shine above the rest. I learned I could tell stories and create timelines with these images and I was really creating my own history book. I was hooked. I loved it. Years of experimenting with light and angles made me comfortable with my own style and feel to my photography and I developed my own personal art form. 

When I had my first daughter, I knew two things. 1. I didn't want to work a regular 9-5 anymore. I wanted to spend all the time I could with her and 2. My camera never left my side anyway, I should focus on creating a business that encouraged my passions and supported our lifestyle. I started building a portfolio and by the time I had my third daughter (three and a half years later) Admyery Photography was born. Ad(Addison)my(Mya)ery(Avery). It's been 3 years since I started my business, and it has been the best years of my life. I have met some fascinating, fun and beautiful people, been to serene and magical locations, and been honoured to take part in people's happiest and most personal moments. I am doing what I love, and I love what I do.
