Welcome to jenni mansell photography!

Hi there! Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to check out some of my latest shots. It's great to have the opportunity to share captured memories and beauty in this world through my camera lens.

Rori

When my niece’s daughter was born at the end of June and a photo was texted, I responded like most people by exclaiming, “That hair!”  I was thrilled to have the chance to capture this beauty when I was home-home in Pennsylvania in July.  I love her and her siblings and it was delightful to capture them in these pictures.  I’m sure they were cherish the memory of Rori being this little, as well as her big brother’s camo cast from a recent tumble.  🙂

Enjoy these beauties and that hair!

Whales, Puffins, and Murres!

I recently spent some time on the island of Newfoundland.  I definitely had to google the Newfoundland and Labrador province before my friend and I planned this trip just to know where it was located!

We had a great time exploring a small part of this very large island.  There was so much to learn about Newfoundland’s history and wildlife.  O’Brien’s Whale and Boat Tours was a great place to start on a foggy morning!

We were able to see tons of puffins, murres (which totally look like penguins from a distance), and humpback whales on our boat tour.  I hope you enjoy some of my photos from our adventure in Bay Bulls!

Here is a video (don’t worry, no plans to become a videographer anytime soon!) showing our slightly overdone excitement about having whales near our boat.  🙂

 

 

Additionally, here are some photos from my phone to show another perspective from our tour.

I’m so grateful that my friend Laura was up for joining me on a chilly summer adventure in Eastern Canada!

Now There Are Four!

It was so much fun to return to the Franklin home and photograph them with their newest baby!  It’s been a delight to see them grow through the years!  Enjoy the latest photos of this beautiful family!

Elise is Here!

A couple years ago, I loved documenting my friends’ newborn daughter, Evelyn.  This past December, I was able to photograph this family again, now with their newest daughter.  It’s a joy to help my friends capture memories of their families with photos like these. 🙂

The Fredells

Following an extremely rainy day in December, I was so grateful for a clear day in which to meet up with my friends from high school and take some photos of their family!  We had a great time at Highbanks Metro Park in Columbus, OH.  I love watching these girls grow up.  Click here to see one of our previous photo sessions.  🙂

A Fall Day on the East Side

Matt and Ashley have been a part of my life for the past eight years.  We’ve been in the same community group through church, weekly investing in each other’s lives, and I’m so grateful they’re my friends.  I had a fantastic time photographing them with their daughter in their beautiful home this fall!

The Fritts Family

This family appears frequently on the blog as they’ve grown the last few years.  I loved documenting this fun stage of their family with these photos in the fall!

The Byrums

I had a really delightful time photographing this lovely family this past fall at Turkeyfoot Nature Park.  I had taken their photos a few years ago, so it was great fun to see them again and to see how the boys have grown!byrum1

The Sattlers

I loved getting to see the Sattlers a few months ago and capturing their family in action at Marott Park!  They’ve come a long way since I photographed their wedding a few years back and have added a couple adorable kids to their family!

Sara

I had a wonderful time getting head-shots for my friend Sara in the fall.  She works in college administration and I was more than happy to help her get updated head-shots for work!
