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.


The Rosario Mining Company in San Juancito, Honduras

As I mentioned in my previous post, there’s this really unique village outside Tegucigalpa, Honduras where an American mining company once set up shop.  It is now a bit of a rundown area up the mountain from San Juancito, at the entrance of La Tigra National Park and has become one of my favorite places to visit.  This post documents my visit there in June 2017.

Cabaña Mirador El Rosario owned by Jorg and Monika is the perfect cabin on a mountain and the dinner and breakfast served at the main house is dreamy.  Here are some sights from the cabin and their home:

And here are some photos from the former El Rosario Mining Company buildings near the entrance of La Tigra National Park, the bright pupleria, as well as some photos from hiking near the park…


My top three favorite photos from the getaway:



I’m always fascinated by the plants I see there…

Here are some additional photos from my phone to get you a feel for the place…

Lastly, we saw a quetzal on our way back down to San Juancito!


The Gringo Cemetery of the Rosario Mining Company, Honduras

Nothing like a snow day home to have me thinking back on past trips and adventures.

In June I returned to my beloved second country, Honduras.  I was able to have a quick getaway to one of my favorite places, Cabaña Mirador in El Rosario.  While there, my friend Michelle and I took a little hike around the village and on the edge of La Tigra National Park.  Just up the mountain from the village of San Juancito sits an old mining town that was operated by a US mining company in the early 1900’s.

This post is focusing on the photos I took at what Michelle and I call the “gringo cemetery” where the mining company buried workers who passed away while they were living there.

Some may find cemeteries creepy, but I tend to find them peaceful.  This one is fascinating.  I hope you enjoy some of the details of this unique place.





The Fritts Six

Hello there!  I’ve loved getting back into family photography this fall and had a great time documenting this growing family, some of my most loyal clients!  This sweet family welcomed their fourth child recently and I loved capturing his cuteness in these photos!








The Mansell Kids

This past summer, I had the joy (and fun challenge) of photographing my brother and sister-in-law’s children, some of my favorite kids in the world.  Being that photos by Aunt Jenni aren’t a novelty to them, the group pics were an amusing challenge (see the last photo for evidence of this).  As usual, it wasn’t difficult to get their beauty to shine through in the individual photos.  🙂  I love that they have made frequent appearances on this blog.  It’s a joy to watch them grow!





Baby Brother on the Way

This family has made quite a few appearances on my blog!  It’s so fun to capture them as they grow.  True confession: Baby boy has already arrived and is pretty much ready to drive at this point due to my delay in posting here.  Ok, it’s not quite that extreme… I took these photos last spring before baby boy’s summer arrival (while I was out of town, sadly). 🙂

We had a great time getting these family photos in Indy.  I always enjoy reminiscing with Kara about our shared hometown in Pennsylvania and their little one has become my buddy!  I look forward to twice the fun next time we’re able to hang out!







The Franklin Family Has Grown!

Hey there, friends!

I’m alive!!  I thought it was time for me to take a break from educating the future of America (and traveling all summer) to update this blog and let you know that I’m still around and taking photos.  🙂

Though greatly delayed (I promise I’m more prompt when it comes to photo shoots with clients), here are highlights from my time with the Franklin family this year.  They’ve grown a bit since our last session together!


Thanks so much for stopping by!

There are more family photography and travel photos coming soon!!!

The Rest of 2016’s Photo Sessions

Hello, my friends!

I’m getting my photography act together and wanted to get my blog up-to-date so I can share more recent sessions next.  Here is proof that I did something other than travel photography in 2016.  🙂  I hope you enjoy these lovely families that I photographed this past fall!


Welcome to the world, little Evie!


Loved this rainbow session with my brother’s family!


I loved capturing these brothers together!


This family is a regular on the blog and I’ve loved watching them grow!


This little boy has grown so much since I took his newborn photos!


Repeat clients like this family are so fun to photograph!



I really appreciate it when co-workers trust me to capture Christmas card photos!


Here is another co-worker’s family that was so fun to photograph!
