...a fiery souled photographer with a need for speed and a knack for storytelling.
Why photography? For as long as I can remember I've been addicted to the implied as a way of interpreting the literal and photography is my means to its expression.
In short, I believe that love is the greatest force in this world and that having photographs that accurately represent the love we feel for the people in our lives (including ourselves) holds the power to remind us that we lived, loved, and belonged.
It is my greatest joy to bear witness to and bring to life the unique love I see all around me.
Now beyond that, what you really need to know is that I'm quick with a joke, will ask you as many questions as it takes 'til I feel like I know you, and will befriend you before you even know what happened. So let's.....be friends, shall we?
Feel free to follow me on my personal Instagram (below), or connect with me on snapchat @jen.fairchild for the undiluted experience.
Being a full service photographer means that I will be involved throughout your entire photo shoot journey. From the pre-meeting to the purchasing session, to the delivery of the finished product and beyond - I vow to put my heart & soul into everything that I do for you.
The way I see it, it's my job to know the in's and out's of everything there is to know about photography; and with 10 years of experience honing my craft under my belt, I've incurred a wealth of knowledge in everything from color correction to printing materials and beyond.
Because my end goal as your photographer is to provide you with finished high-quality products, I am happy to offer my expertise in the design process when taking the photos off the screen and into your home. Upon conclusion, it is my greatest ambition to ensure that I leave my clients with no task to complete except to enjoy their family by way of photographic investment.
I have this philosophy that life is a river and that we are the conduits through which it flows. If we are only to take without giving back, that flow becomes disrupted and an imbalance is created. Needless to say, the importance of being a conscientious citizen of the world is paramount to me.
The first step to being an upstanding citizen? Mindfulness. Everything that I choose to incorporate into my business and personal life is filtered through a thorough array of criteria. 'Where is it made? Is it sustainable? What's its carbon footprint?' - are a few questions I consistently ask myself. In this way, I feel that I am doing my individual part (which is the best we can all do) towards the greater good in ensuring the future of our planet.
Beyond being mindful and intentional in all aspects of my business and personal life, I currently work with a local women's charity WoW Utah, standing for Women of Worth. Their purpose lies with 'giving women a hand up, not a hand out', and because I'm a huge advocate of female empowerment and women helping woman (I mean, we ladies gotta stick together am I right?) it only made sense for me to donate my time and abilities to help shine a light on what they are doing for the women in our community.
I share these details with you not for acknowledgement or a pat on the back, but simply to make you aware. I want you to know that by choosing to invest in a local business like jenFAIRCHILD Photography, you are doing your part in being a mindful citizen by putting money right back into your community. You are choosing to make Salt Lake City, and the world, a better place to live.
