It was an amazing experience to work with Jen. She is a very creative talent, and most importantly she carries herself very professionally. I’m honored and very flattered that she chose to work with me.  Jen is very easy to work with and I love her positive energy. I would work with her again in a heartbeat if the chance came across.

-Jaquann Harrison, Model   |   PROJECT: Model Portfolio

 

I told Jen that I was looking for a professional headshot that would convey that I am "assertive" yet "approachable". She was right on the money! She is a wonderful person to work with: creative, professional, organized, and she takes care of everything you need. I strongly recommend her.

-Robi Colangelo, Producer   |   PROJECT: Portrait/Headshot

 

Oh Jen….I’m sitting here weeping….the pictures aresoooooo beautiful! You captured Ava and Allen’s relationship perfectly.  Thank you for sharing your talent and brilliance!

-Shelly Kramer, Mother    |   PROJECT: Children’s Portraits

Whoa, Mrs. Serena!  I gotta say – I am VERY impressed with these shots.  Some of them are pure gold – seriously…  Thanks again!

 

Awesome. We got some great images.  Some really really great headshots!!! Thanks Jen!

- Ross Marquad, Model/Actor   |    PROJECT: Model Portfolio

 

 

Jen Serena surpassed my expectations at every turn.  The images she captured were far better than I had hoped for, allowing me a wide range of freedom in the compositing process.  Her grasp of lighting, framing, composition, and overall taste made for a series of images that our production company can feel confident in displaying.

- Nate Bush, Model   |   PROJECT: Model Portfolio

 

 

On set, Jen was nothing short of professional, working hard to get us the images we needed from our models in the time-frame alotted.  Most importantly, she was easy to interact with, and collaborated well with the other department heads…a trait we value above all others.

Jen will always be my first choice for our photographer.

- Sean Rourke, Director, 3rd Floor Productions   |   PROJECT: Commercial Stills for basis of Comic Book

 

 

YOUR PHOTOS ARE AMAZING. Thanks again for taking all of these, you have an amazing eye and are really really talented. It’s nice to know if I have to lug a heavy HD camera around I can rely on someone to capture the still shot

-Jason Fitzpatrick, Documentary Filmmaker    |   PROJECT: John Muir Trail Documentary

 

Jen, I can’t thank you enough for the portrait session you did with our family last weekend!  With a 3 year old and a 4 month old, we are quite an unruly lot!  It seems like just when one person was ready to sit still and smile, another had jumped-up to “go potty” or two disappeared to change a diaper.  How you managed to get so many wonderful, personal photos is amazing to me.  Through it all, you maintained an easy-going, positive, fun attitude and that really saved the day with the little girls.

Your skill, confidence and creativity really shine through.  I love the candid shots as much as I love the formal photos! You really captured the personality of the family.  Warmest Thanks.

- Sarah LaBrache, Mother    |   PROJECT: Family Portraits

 

Dear Jen, Thank you so much for the recent photo shoots you did for my family and I.  I believe many of us can take pictures but few of us can take quality pictures that speak.  This is exactly what you accomplished with my family.  The moments captured meant more than words can ever say since they will conserve one of the most precious moments in my life.  With the first set of photos you captured my belly at its fullest along side my family.  The second were the pictures of my new addition with only 2 weeks of age.  Moments in these pictures unless captured are often forgotten about in time but with your help and your professionalism you have helped us keep these memories present.

Thank you for generously accommodating my families’ needs with the awesome set up you had put together for us and your visions on the end production of making these moments memorable.  Your patience during these shoots was also a key factor since we have no control over babies 2 weeks of age and my 5 year olds tantrums.  This made our experience that much better.  In return we have quality pictures taken by a professional and someone that obviously understands about family values.

Jen, working with you on these shoots was by far one of the best experiences I have had and the result is exceptionally great.  Thank you so much for giving us this opportunity to work with you.  My family and I wish you much success in your future plans.

- Sisy Tinajero, Mother   |   PROJECTS: Family & Infant Portraits

 

We decided to have some family portraits taken for the  winter holidays.  It was important for us to feel comfortable with our photographer and Jennifer Serena came highly recommended.

We absolutely made the right decision.  Jen took the time to genuinely understand what we had in mind and immediately offered attentive suggestions on the best way to achieve it.  She really connected with our 6-year-old son, which allowed so many of his shots to capture a relaxed, content state of mind.  Sure, she’s got the state of the art equipment and the knowledge of a seasoned pro,but ironically, it’s her warm personality that brings out the best in people and makes her pictures such a success.  Who knew?!

When the pictures arrived, we couldn’t have asked for more.  Thanks, Jennifer!  You’re now the official photographer of this family.

- Rich Myers, Father  |   PROJECT: Family Portraits

 

Oh my gosh…..I am about to cry.  I just took a peek at your website and I saw my little Linda!!! I can not believe how beautiful the pictures turned out!!!!  I am in love :)

- Stephanie Lorenzo  |  PROJECT: Infant Portraits

 

Jen Serena’s (Serena Creative) photography of our summer  wedding was simply spectacular!  Our early discussions on how to approach the special day were very efficient, practical, and informative.  On our big day, both she and her second photographer arrived ahead of time – beginning to prep strategies on how best to use the locations near our church for some creative and fun outdoor naturalistic shots.  As family and friends gathered in our church for big group photos prior to the ceremony, she kept things organized and well paced.  This provided us with both candid and professional studio-looking shots, with ample key lighting and fill light to produce friendly and warm memories of us with family and our wedding party.

The coverage during the ceremony itself was handled discreetly as not to interrupt the ceremony, but at the same time intimate enough to capture some of our most key moments.  As our day progressed and moved into the reception dinner party and dancing, the same creative flair and willingness to jump in and capture bits of innocence, confidence, and joy among us and our friends was found in all of Serena Creative’s pictures.

Weeks later, as we worked with Jen on our archival photo albums, we enjoyed working collaboratively to lay out the best shots, including all of the important highlights and some of the other subtle but genuine wedding day moments.  Her final delivery of the album book (including an amazing cover and protective page coating for years of page turning use) and all of the digital assets was completely professional and comprehensive.  We have had so many friends and family praise the album book after they looked through it.

We are forever in debt to Serena Creative on the fantastic hard work and labor of love involved with preserving our special day for years to come.  Thank you so much Jen!
