Part photoshoot, part podcast, ALL self love celebration - this groundbreaking new offer is not only an investment in YOU, but also an opportunity to impact your immediate communities and the world at large. It’s like if Queer Eye, Vogue, and the gentle self acceptance of Mr. Rogers had a baby, and the baby is THIS. 😆
The current state of LGBTQ+ representation in media is 99% stereotypical and certainly not intersectional. As a Queer Soul star, you’ll be able to create the LGBTQ+ representation you *wish* you had when you were younger. YOU will get to give the next generation of queer kids permission to live proudly as their authentic selves through your lived example.
You’re not doing this alone - just bring your authentic self and I’ll help translate your energy into something visually stunning!
✿ Get ideas from my Queer Soul inspiration board
✿ Take a fun buzzfeed-style quiz with me over Zoom to hone in on what’s aesthetically meaningful to you
✿ Create a Pinterest board together to nail down the ~vibe~
but how do i design an entire photoshoot?😧
Let’s celebrate who you are at this point in your life’s journey together, collaborating to design a multi-look, multi-location editorial photoshoot that encapsulates all that you are. Think of it like wearing your heart on your sleeve! You’ll transform your sense of self as you reflect on how far you’ve come and how incredible you are. You can use your photos for social media, self marketing + promotion, and more!
Next, literally lend your voice to the telling of your story when we record an episode of The Queer Soul Spotlight all about YOU!
Let’s talk about self care, queer joy, and community building. You’ll get to share your experiences on a platform that will make a real impact on baby queers just beginning their journey to know and love themselves. Ready to feel the love? You - just as you are in this moment - are so inspiring!
The Queer Soul Spotlight is available to listen to on Spotify, Apple podcasts, and Anchor.
There are also lots of bonus surprises along the way to turn this into a seriously luxury experience. I’m not kidding when I say this is life-changing! By pouring love into yourself in this way, the ripples of impact will go beyond you - further than you will ever see.
Be the person you needed when you were younger… there are LGBTQ+ kids just like you still out there who deserve to see that it’s possible for them to grow, love, and thrive.
But wait, there's more...
Finally, the best photos from your shoot, your podcast episode, and the story of you and your whole Queer Soul experience will be combined into a publication via this website.
Get ready to hit “share”, because your story deserves to be told and you deserve to be celebrated on a grand scale! 🎉
Absolutely wonderful experience with Jenni. The Queer Soul Experience allowed me to acknowledge and celebrate where I’ve come from, who I am right now, and get excited about where I’m going. I ADORED being a collaborator and partner with Jenni, and it was clear to me that she really valued my stories, vision, and comfort level. Not only did the photos turn out SO WELL, the podcast we recorded was such a blast, and was the perfect balance of talking about all that serious stuff, and also just having a fun and silly convo with a pal. I now have a collection of shots to use for networking, auditions, my portfolio, social media, and to share with my family- AND they feel truly representative of me and unique to me. Awesome experience, wonderful person, gorgeous art.

Jenni was truly amazing. Our communication was super open and she answered my 1,000,000 questions so I was prepared for anything. We did a very relaxed and casual couples photo session (which turned into a surprise proposal!!!!).
My partner and I are both neurodivergent so having to take photo after photo usually is an unpleasant experience for us, but truly Jenni made it an experience that we both enjoyed.
Our friends and family have raved about our gallery, and I will be singing Jenni’s praises for as long as I walk this earth.

It was great having Jenni photograph our wedding. As a fellow queer, there was a level of comfort and understanding that was nice to not have to think about! And she sure knows her way with a camera. We had her dealing with unfavorable lighting (noon sun under leafy trees) and difficult angles (hills) and she gave us some beautiful pictures. She has a good eye and is a quick thinker. She speaks up about what she needs and will do what needs to be done to serve her client. And the editing was done quickly!

As a queer couple, when my Spouse and I started our search for a photographer we were very clear about two things - that it was important to us to utilize local, LGBTQ+ vendors as much as possible, and that we wanted to have someone on our team that would help up create (and capture) the vision for our event and ceremony that was still being fleshed out. Jenni was such a perfect fit for us! Our ceremony was semi-elopement and a little complex with many parts and Jenni did such an incredible job of understanding our vision and capturing the moments so beautifully. Jenni even put together our photo backdrop for our celebration dinner later that evening and it was so perfect. These are the priceless things you can’t quite anticipate when you choose a photographer, but Jenni really came through for us in so many ways.
When I look at the photos they are so alive, little moments we could have forgotten immortalized in the photos and we will treasure them forever.”
